Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

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 »

Guidelines for Production

Guidelines for Production
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked a group of industry leaders, "What Guidelines Do You Follow When Producing Content?" Here's what they had to say: "Usually it depends on the company I'm working for. When I work for Metro, I'm under contract for them. If they want anal scenes, I give th... More »

I present it for your consideration, and would like to hear what you have to say about it, by using the message thread below: Why have the real thing when you can have fantasy sex right at your door?

A Closer Look At .XXX

A Closer Look At .XXX
I've read several message board threads lately, here at XBiz, and elsewhere, that cited an AVN Online report on Utah's efforts to curb the access of online adult entertainment within the state. These threads, and the original article, tend to paint the issue of a .xxx top level domain (TLD) and gove... More »

Getting Involved

Getting Involved
For most people, their involvement in this or any other industry centers around a self-serving desire to generate a profit. There is nothing wrong with this, as it is the raison d'etre for "business" – and the cornerstone of capitalism. For some, however (and thankfully), there is an additional, h... More »

LEGAL PERSPECTIVES

The Skinny on the New DMCA Requirement

The requirements under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) have changed, but the sky is not falling. We have, even as a law firm, been hit with an unbelievable amount of spam sent out by law firms... More »

2017 Outlook: Legal Matters Around the Corner

The adult entertainment business’ legal community recently weighed in the top issues that companies and the industry, as a whole, should be concerned about. XBIZ asked industry attorneys to discuss... 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 »
