The Ultimate Attack?

The Ultimate Attack?
Like it or not, the participants in, and consumers of, our industry are reviled, and looked down upon by the mainstream world, including by those who partake of our wares and services. This is never more apparent than when one party wishes to launch a personal attack on another: rarely is a better v... More »

The Future Of The Industry

The Future Of The Industry

The Godaddy.com Ad

The Godaddy.com Ad
The recent uproar over the godaddy.com television ad, which was originally aired during the Super Bowl, shows little signs of dissipating; and is fueling a public discourse on where the line of acceptability should be drawn regarding what is, and what is not, appropriate fare for broadcaster's to di...

The Anti-Porn Movement
Vocal and well-respected researchers who are now actively demonizing pornography, such as Dr. Mary Anne Layden, Dr. James B.

The Day Hell Froze Over

The Day Hell Froze Over

Internext is over until the summer show rolls around to Florida; and there's a larger than normal number of travellers heading home right now, as several of the earlier flights had been cancelled. The reason why? It wa... More »

Porn In The Comfort Zone

Porn In The Comfort Zone

You only have to see the latest television commerc... More »

Bush's Second Term

Bush's Second Term
President Bush's tight victory on Nov. 2 is likely a harbinger of some very tough times ahead for the adult entertainment industry, and in particular adult companies.
