Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals


The other day I was dining at a trendy Hollywood eatery when a starlet I had reviewed in a porn film approached me with venom and malice. "I don't understand half the things you write," she said. "What about the other half?" I asked. "I think that's dumb, too." I had accused her of ... More »

Fellation Fixation

Fellation Fixation
Freud's five stages of psychosexual development (oral, anal, phallic, latency, genital) are well-represented in the porn industry. Many people wonder about latency, the period in which Freud says sexual feelings are repressed in order for people to focus on other areas of development, but I find tha... More »

...And the Lady Finger Clit Stimulator Is Mine

...And the Lady Finger Clit Stimulator Is Mine
When the Ponantes came over on the Mayflower, they thought they had quit a land of inequality where status was based not on merit but on inherited titles. To my horror, our past has followed us here. Lady Finger Clit-Stimulator and her husband, Lord Brambles Clit-Stimulator were horrible, alm... More »

Are you a Mouthketeer?

Are you a Mouthketeer?
David Aaron Clark sent along this trailer for Asian Mouth Club 3, despite repeatedly rejecting my own membership application based on race and gender. "But my father owns a railroad as well as the fanciest hotel in town," I said. "No dice," Clark replied, not a lefty at all, really. Clark k... More »

"Now Lick It."

"Now Lick It."
The experience of sitting in a dark theatre and watching a porn movie beside a man twenty years my senior (as I did last night, watching Pirates with Tod-Hunter) took me back, Miniver Cheevy-like, to a wondered-at time in which I might have been picked up in 1970s Times Square and taken to Deep Thro...
