Step Into The Arena

Step Into The Arena
Being a talent agent in the adult industry is very similar to being a boxer. You need to constantly defend your title, flex your muscles and train (well, in this case work) hard. For many years there were only a handful of agencies monopolizing the industry, chiefly Jim South’s World Modeling. But... More »

Old School Meets New

Old School Meets New
For years the sign hanging outside World Modeling was the Porn Valley equivalent to Sin City’s Welcome to Las Vegas sign, a public salutation to the American underbelly. From the late 1970s to the early 1990s, virtually every big name in porn — as well as thousands of lesser stars and starlets w... More »

A Broader View

A Broader View
If you’re trying to make a living in online adult entertainment, or for that matter, in any facet of adult entertainment, you’ve probably noticed that times are tougher for a lot of folks — and the situation for some operators will likely get worse.

The Best Check to Cash is Yours

The Best Check to Cash is Yours

Future of Sex Arrives
The future promised us flying cars, jet packs and videophones. We’re waiting for those futuristic items, but Charlotte, N.C.-based AEBN, the VOD giant, has created an intimate and oft-requested bit of future fetish: the Real Touch, the first mass-marketed teledildonic device.

Marketing a Monster
It wasn’t easy, but we managed to corner Digital Playground publicist Adella O’Neal and squeeze her — and squeeze her hard! — for the secrets to marketing the biggest adult title release in the history of the genre. Next time you have a multi-million dollar feature to market, you might want ... More »

A Blockbuster for the Ages

A Blockbuster for the Ages
Just how does one follow up the most successful feature in modern adult entertainment history? Make it bigger better, of course. Oh, sure, it would be easy to rest on the laurels of “Pirates,” to ride that success through a few more sequels and Digital Playground would probably still make a... More »

The State of Merchant Banking

The State of Merchant Banking
Rest assured: Now more than ever, we believe there are excellent choices for merchants to obtain quality merchant account and payment processing solutions. One fact that can describe these times is that the payment industry is more regulated than ever, which may seem problematic to some, but in trut... More »

The Ugly Side of Sitting Pretty

The Ugly Side of Sitting Pretty
As a fairly vain and slightly lazy woman, I am at a disadvantage. I am worried about how I look, yet not motivated enough to spend hours at the gym or to stick to a strict diet.
