Pirates 3 The Real Piracy

As I mentioned this weekend MindGeek is going to make Pirates 3.  It’s interesting that anyone who knows much of anything about it seems to be under a non disclosure agreement. but there are people inside Manwin who know things…..and they tell me.

The most interesting thing to come out of this is that […]

AVN and Mark Kernes Are Fucking MORONS

Mark Kernes apparently can’t fucking read he thinks yesterdays 3rd circuit decision ONLY applies to FSC members…he is either a complete fucking moron or the most disingenuous piece of shit ever in porn….taker your pick.

What was struck down/remanded back to the lower court was that inspections  will require a […]

AVN Getting Blow Back From PornHub Decision

It pleases me greatly to see that at least one of AVN’s advertisers, and a big one at that, has cancelled their booth at Adult Expo, additionally the company has cut its advertising from a monthly two page ad to just 4 single pages a year.

The company doesn’t wish to be named and […]

Many Porners Are Unhappy With AVN Over PornHub Getting Space At Adult Expo

When you ask people in porn what the biggest problem is these days you will get one answer first: “piracy”.  Whether you ask performers, agents, company owners, cameramen, make up artists or floor moppers, every single one of them will tell you they are losing money to piracy, and a lot of money at […]

Reader Mail – AVN Awards for sale Nothing New

Hi Mike. Sex in exchange for AVN Award consideration is nothing new, of course. Years ago (circa 2006) I had solid evidence of certain former editor (bald, bearded, fancied himself a BDSM “Lord” and “Master”) working with a studio owner to secure the use of some rather famous vagina at the time in […]

Want An AVN Award? This Reader Says You Have To Have Sex With Peter Warren

Over the years I have gotten lots of emails about AVN Awards and while I think many of them were true they weren’t willing to speak out and were based more on speculation than on something concrete.  This one is more concrete.  I followed up on this for days and have corroborating witnesses so […]

I Miss The Days When the Porn Industry Wasn’t a Cesspool

Now if you are like me you think this is big news and I posted it […]

AVN Doesn’t Place Much Value In An AVN Award

I bet he wont cum in your mouth either.

The Systematic Destruction Of The Adult Industry And How AVN and XBiz Are At The Center Of It.

Porn performers are trying to start a pay for your porn campaign, trying to get the word out about how piracy is destroying the industry, costs them money and work, costing companies money and effecting the economy of Porn Valley in a way that dwarfs anything the condom law could do.
