Profiles of Adult Industry Professionals

Graphic Poke
Adult industry, take heed! Be afraid of Neil Strauss. Very afraid! His best-seller, "The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists," has empowered legions of sex-starved men to seduce the women of their dreams. Say what you want about couples watching adult videos, but more gu... More »

A Woman's World

A Woman's World
Recently, XBIZ World Magazine caught up with some of the industry's leading ladies and asked, "What is the greatest challenge you've faced being a woman in adult?" Here's what they had to say: "I would say that the public perception of a woman involved in the adult industry has been the hardest c... More »

Girls of the Web

Girls of the Web
Fame and fortune — they're the longtime attractions for those seeking Hollywood stardom. But what motivates women to strike out on the road to "porndom" — the not always glitter-lined path to a different type of fame and an often lower level of fortune? In my own particular case, I chose this... More »

Hooking Up the World

Hooking Up the World
The American legend of the Midwestern farm boy who goes west and makes good is alive and well in Silicon Valley. Andrew Conru, founder and CEO of FriendFinder.com, AdultFriendFinder and a handful of other social networking sites, is that rarest of creatures: someone who, by 38, not only realized mos... More »

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. I admit up front that it was only when I started thinking about writing this piece that I even realized how many women it was. I had taken that fact for granted. As I think back on everything that has... More »

An Adult Gaming Model
Editor's note: I had a chance to demo GOMA Systems' game and interface technology at the recent Mobile Adult Content Conference (MACC) in Reno and believe that forward-looking adult operators will find it well worth investigating. Here's a closer look: GOMA Systems Corporation has followed the re... More »

Looking Back

Looking Back
Two years ago, I entered the adult entertainment industry and deliberately tried to understand how it functions from an objective point of view. Based on my experiences in the industry over the past two years, it seems to me that adult is at a crossroads in American politics, culture and business, a... More »

Straight Guys, Gay Surfers

Straight Guys, Gay Surfers
Performer Jack Lawrence works hard at maintaining his tanned, muscular body and rugged, All-American looks. Since 2003, he's worked in more than 400 titles. Like other adult actors, he enjoys being looked at, watched and even admired. But, unlike other straight male talent, he loves his gay male fa... More »

Sex at the Cow

Sex at the Cow
In a city where every day is Halloween and residents don't raise an eyebrow when someone prances down the street dressed as a pickle, Perry Mann's San Francisco-based Exotic Erotic Ball is still an eye-catching party. It's a happening that gives thousands of attendees a chance to revel in sexual exp... More »

Women in Adult

Women in Adult
This month I'd like to talk about women in adult — not the organization but the actual women who work in the adult entertainment industry and the perception that I, as a man, have of them and their place in this business. Right off the bat, I'll admit that I've been called a chauvinist, but I d... More »

‘Alternative Facts’ of PC vs. Mac Users

Now that we live in a world of “alternative facts” it feels like somehow everyone has become a little more critical about what information and data they are digesting, and where it came from. Don’t... More »

Putting a Dollar Figure on Your Website's Worth

Daily, I get asked the question, “what’s my website worth.” And it’s the hardest question for me to answer. Someone will go to my website and fill out the contact form, put in... More »
