What happened to the adult content distributors?

Colin Rowntree
Back in "the day", I, as a busy webmaster, had a very nice repertoire of little companies that brokered adult content that I could purchase to put on my paysites to augment our original content.

Those days are, sadly, mostly over.

90% of the content guys have gone out of business over the past 3 years, mostly due to the new trend of webmasters creating their own content, and the big sites purchasing DVD rights.

Sure, the failing DVD-producing studios are dumping their own inventory onto the internet faster than a goose can poop, but that doesn't really help, does it?

Yes, there are a few Internet content providers still out there, but they are struggling against the tide of the big studios dumping their video libraries onto the web at a breakneck speed.

But, here is an opportunity: If you are running a website, please do your best to support these small businesses. You can find the few of them left them in the Service Directories of all of the main adult boards. It's sometimes fresh, it's hot and good (and, it's DIVERSE and adds a different style to your content offerings). And, most importantly, you are supporting "Old School" folks that have been around in the internet side of things since it started.
