Dick Delaware

Dick Delaware
Dick Delaware stood two feet away from me in a parking lot off Reseda Boulevard. He was vaulting back and forth under a dim light, screaming under the night's sky for me to do the unthinkable deed. "Wanna see how tough I am?" he shouted. "Do you? Kick me in the balls as hard as you c... More »

Girls of the Web

Girls of the Web
Fame and fortune — they're the longtime attractions for those seeking Hollywood stardom.

Women Under Me

Women Under Me
This is a brief reminiscence on the women I have worked with (or for) over my seven years in adult.

As I think back on everything that has... More »

Here's a closer look: GOMA Systems Corporation has followed the re... More »

Looking Back

Looking Back
