Wednesday Dumb Porn Title Roundup

Wednesday Dumb Porn Title Roundup
or Why, Suza Randall, Why? Just to prove to you that I play fast and loose, just to prove to you (my public) that I (Gram Ponante) am in no one's pocket and play by my own hard-hitting rules, just to prove to you that I don't really have a first paragraph, I will follow up my ingratiating sto...

Holly Randall: Always a Pervert

Holly Randall: Always a Pervert
I spoke with Holly Randall as she drove through the Valley to the Randall compound in Malibu. Our cell phones kept giving out. We talked very briefly about the reissue of her mother’s classic porn films from the 1980s - that was the reason I called - but we mostly discussed Holly’s own life in t... More »

Thinking outside the box

Thinking outside the box
When Tod-Hunter took me and Corey Feldman to the Emmys, our gift bags were lavish and obscene. Mainstream Hollywood knows how to distribute swag. When the boys in Receiving delivered the Britney Rears goodie box/press kit to the penthouse of Gram Ponante Towers, Iphigenia Squirtz and I se... More »

See Lee Stone, then you die

See Lee Stone, then you die
This woman is named Tory Lane. She is appearing in Lee Stone's Getting Stoned 2 for Madness Pictures. I was Madness Pictures' production manager for about ten minutes once. The film involves Stone having sex with six women, some at the same time. "It's some of the best sex I've been in," S... More »

Brother Love's Taxation Show

Brother Love's Taxation Show
New Sensations is launching a new POV series. POV stands for "Point of View", as you know, and in the porn world that means that people watching porn will often have a tool's eye view of the action. For today's story, the tool in question is that of a man named Brother Love. For many pe... More »

Ironhead 3: A Path to Hoping

<i>Ironhead 3</i>: A Path to Hoping
Tina Tyler's office at Lexington Steele's Mercenary Building is amazing. Employing a Wonder Woman decor, it is all glass, so it is difficult for me to find the knobs. The entire office pivots in response to the Swedish-made autogyros that protect the Mercenary stable of talent from earthquakes.... More »

Girls-Only Cova Not Rubber Czech

Girls-Only Cova Not Rubber Czech
Digital Playground has assimilated another contract performer. This time, it is the sylphlike Czech beauty Jana Cova. There was great consternation amongst the people to whom this sort of thing matters over which media outlet got the press release first. Actually I knew centuries ago. I h... More »

Echo Park Porn

Echo Park Porn
It sure would suck if Eon McKai became a cigar-chomping megalomaniac, saving his urine in mason jars and rolling over the limp bodies of toadying sybarites in his gold-plated wheelchair, but the well-deserved media blitz for Kill Girl Kill continues. It is being released tomorrow. I watche... More »

Gram's World Shane Invasion

Gram's World Shane Invasion
When I first got to Hollywood as the singer for Rage Against the Machine, I spent a lot of time in, around, or hovering slightly above the Sunset Strip. I had never been to the Hustler store, though, and I really enjoyed my brief visit there to photograph the Shane's World College Invasion #6 DVD... More »

Yeti Watch 2005

Yeti Watch 2005
I think Platinum X's Brandon Iron writes his own press releases. At least I hope he does (if he doesn't, please let me know via my almost-certainly ill-fated comments section). Baker's Dozen #4 involves what we in the know call "facials". I don't know if there is somebody involved in th... More »


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 »

E-Stim Basics: Selling Customers on Powerboxes as Pleasure Tools

Electrosex is a commonly misunderstood pleasure practice for good reason: Most of us have negative associations with electricity; maybe we’ve been shocked after rubbing our feet across a carpeted... More »

Search Oftentimes Is Left to Chance

Adult content is frowned upon in search, whether in paid, organic or social. With the big algo updates from the past few years, Google has cleaned up search, trying to get rid of spammy and low-quality... More »
