Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

The Three R's

The Three R's
No, I'm not talking about "Reading, 'Righting and 'Rithmetic" – but about "Reputation, Repentance and Responsibility." Unless you've been hiding in a cave somewhere, or have just joined the industry yesterday, you know that Deerfield Beach, Florida-based Internet Payment Processing Provider (IP... More »

Learning to Love: Riding the Curves #3

Learning to Love: <i>Riding the Curves #3</i>
Just so you know, porn stars don't spend months preparing for a film and then go on a vacation once they've shot it. There are no boot camps or sauna days for these hard workers, and when they punch the clock at the end of the day, pack their lunch pail, and drive down the 101 to their second jo... More »

Cytherea's Poetry Corner

Cytherea's Poetry Corner
Porn Star Karaoke didn't have a sponsor Tuesday night, and Sardo's met federal sausage party standards for the first time since I've been attending. The gang from XBiz was there, and thought enough to bring the latest issue of their Variety-esque trade publication, in which resided an article re... More »

You Don't Know Jack's Teen America

You Don't Know <I>Jack's Teen America</i>
I spoke with Digital Playground’s contract director Robby D. He didn’t want to do it, because he’s been hurt before, but my fierce persuasive powers plus the fact that his studio pays me $1 million every time I mention it in my other job as vice president of the United States made him come aro...

When in Portland: Masturbate

When in Portland: Masturbate
Portland (Oregon - stuff like this never happens in Maine) treasure Darklady is holding her fourth annual Masturbate-a-thon. I am always put slightly off-kilter when people try to convince me that sex is wholesome and good for me, like at swingers' parties in Orange County or at Carl's Jr., but that... More »

Notes from A Greyhound Station

Notes from A Greyhound Station
Hollywood's White Lotus club, which used to be a great dance bar called Crush, which prior to that was a Greyhound station (the new one is next door), was host to a mainstream entertainment staple that is becoming more and more common in the adult industry: a co-production. About 17 comp... More »

A Love-Hate Relationship

A Love-Hate Relationship
If you read XBiz.com as often as you should (I recommend once a day, at least), two facts should be obvious to you. One is that people hate the adult industry. In Utah, they hate the adult industry so much that they want to use taxpayer money to run anti-adult public service television commercial... More »

Ciao, Pornblography

Ciao, Pornblography
Carly Milne is not leaving the adult industry because of me. Carly’s announcement on her soon-to-be-defunct groundbreaking web diary, Pornblography, was simple. “This is my 500th post…it’s time to say goodbye.” I thought it was something I said. I thought it was because we us... More »

Busta Nut: What It Is Right Now

<i>Busta Nut</i>: What It Is Right Now
VCA Excessive, which is apparently Larry Flynt's version of Dimension Films, is proud to release Busta Nut, in which sistaz from around the way show how they do. "Hazel Berry, Beauty, Taya Silver, Tamani and Tia Sweets pack a horniness not seen in many white girls today as sucking, humpin’... More »

Teagan fronts Front

Teagan fronts <i>Front</i>
The life of a porn publicist must be tough. Professionals like myself learn to read between the lines of press releases and will gradually understand that a PR person's day is not all about chasing naked starlets around with feather dusters, pleading with them to stop eating their carrots off of Gra...

LEGAL PERSPECTIVES

Fraudulent Brazilian Trademark Registrations Running Rampant

Although you might not think often about protecting your trademark rights in Brazil, you need to — even if you don’t yet have a single Brazilian customer. Scammers are constantly looking for... More »

Visa Cracks Down on ‘Shell’ Billing Firms

There was a time not so long ago when website operators created billing companies in favorable jurisdictions, whose sole purpose was to bill customers for services provided by the operator and remit the... More »

Randazza: Trump Victory, Big Prop 60 Win

On Tuesday afternoon, I boarded a transatlantic flight. Given all of the negativity in the 2016 presidential race, I was delighted that I would be absent for the results. I found both Donald Trump and... More »
