Bad Publicity Lies Ahead

Bad Publicity Lies Ahead
It's likely that the media is getting ready to launch a shit storm of bad publicity targeted at the adult industry in the next few years.

To Pop Or Not To Pop

To Pop Or Not To Pop
Editor's Note: few tools available to webmasters cause as much controversy as do pop-ups. Love them or hate them, they're still a fact of life on the Internet – despite increasing efforts to eliminate them. Used judicously, pop-ups are an effective method of increasing revenue. Used poorly, they w... More »

Goodwill During Bad Times

Goodwill During Bad Times
I've read a lot about the iBill problem and how to resolve it. Most want to hurt iBill by manually charging back for unpaid charges. I'm partial to baseball bats, but neither will get you any goodwill from your customers, and will only make you feel good for a short period of time. No matter how ... More »

What's A Real Job?

What's A Real Job?
Anyone who works in the adult industry has heard these words, either spoken to them, about them, or about someone else in the industry: "When are you going to get a real job?" Most people don't consider working at home to be a "real" job. Why is that? People who work outside the home, wheth... More »

Bonnie, and Charley, and Frances – Oh My! Many Florida residents are no strangers to the physical, emotional, financial, and business stresses that Hurricanes can unexpectedly inflict. Even the online adult industry is affected by natural disasters, and with the latest in a series of named sto... More »

Content Provider Criticisms

Content Provider Criticisms
As in every other area of this (and every other) industry, there are the good, the bad, and the ugly to be found within the world of adult photo and video content providers. This rant is not meant to be an indictment against any individual provider, or to endorse (or condemn) any specific party, but... More »

Fraudulent Brazilian Trademark Registrations Running Rampant
