Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Why Ashley Blue Might Be Cool

Why Ashley Blue Might Be Cool
The Seymore Butts bus was kind of a non-event, with a lot of people and no liquor. Since Playboy and Showtime were shooting it, the stripper music was all that noodly neo-porn synthesizer stuff that doesn't require rights being purchased for it. Lapdances were equally intentional and not, as every t... More »

Nerdz in Your House

<i>Nerdz</i> in Your House
The idea of a bunch of porn stars partying at my house doesn't appeal to me 1.) because they would displace all the porn stars already here and 2.) because, as Ashley Blue said to me the other night in re her upcoming bowling date: "I didn't get to say, 'No smellies.'" But Mallcom is running a pr... More »

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked a group of industry leaders, "How much of your success would you attribute to industry relationships?" Here's what they had to say: "Industry relationships have been a key ingredient to our success at SPACash.com. We value our relationships with industr... More »

How I Saved Digital Playground

How I Saved Digital Playground
When I received a DVD copy of the Pirates trailer several weeks ago, along with a cash donation to my favorite charity (Spay the Whales), I was hesitant about giving it any coverage. "Surely, word of mouth will give this project the exposure it needs," I thought, reflecting on a 30-year career in ad... More »

Phat Buttz Mission Accomplished

<i>Phat Buttz</i> Mission Accomplished
Studio: Ebony/Celestial Productions/Lethal Hardcore Director: Dust Cast: Kandi Kream, Chyanne, Beauty, Jersey Montana When my injunction clears with that other awards show sponsored by the Recording Industry of America, I will offer Phat Buttz Drain My Nutz the honor for Title of the Year. It's... More »

Hiya XBiz

Hiya XBiz
September has always meant for me the beginning of a new school year. Being from the East Coast, I also associate this time with cooler weather. Now that I hewn Ponante Towers from a living sea cliff here in California, the weather doesn't change appreciably from one month to another, but something ... More »

Race in Adult Entertainment

Race in Adult Entertainment
Pop quiz: Name three of the top black female performers working in adult entertainment today. Time's up. If you came up a name or two short, it probably says less about you than about the state of black women, and minorities in general, in adult entertainment. While interracial, all-black, al... More »

Love Letters to Black Size Queens

Love Letters to <i>Black Size Queens</i>
I believe A.R. Gurney has become a porn publicist. The press release for the new West Coast Productions joint, Black Size Queens, features a head-scratching conversation between one of the male talent and his size queen counterpart that I'm sure isn't replicated as dialogue in the film. Male T... More »

Jay Moyes: Flames, Floggers, & Fangs

Jay Moyes: Flames, Floggers, & Fangs
Flames, Floggers, & Fangs, a fetish art show to benefit BDSM organization Threshold, will take place at Hollywoodland Studios, 11300 Hartland Street, North Hollywood, from 6 to 11 p.m. on August 27. I talked with the young man responsible for the bespectacled, asymmetrically-breasted firewoman im... More »

New Pirates cover released

New <i>Pirates</i> cover released
Digital Playground has updated its boxcover for the three-disc Collector's Edition of a movie that has yet to be released. I'm assuming that there will be a less-expensive single-disc version for the non-collector after the September 12 premiere at the Egyptian Theatre, possibly with Kandi Kream ste... More »


Data Privacy Is Tightening Up in the E.U.

Have you begun preparing for GDPR? If you are like most, you haven’t even heard of GDPR, but also if you are like most, it is going to affect your business, starting May 25, 2018. The GDPR, or General... More »

Preventing Legal Problems Before They Start

Dentists typically recommend that a person’s teeth be cleaned every six months and that oral X-rays be taken at least once every year. Internists recommend that a person receive a physical examination... More »

Could Adult Content Be Banned?

Earlier this month, I met with the Free Speech Coalition’s board of directors for our annual review. Despite the headwinds our industry faces, politically and economically, we are, as an organization,... More »
