    content/attachments/22851-sexdotcom-jpg.html MONTREAL – Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Sex.com is back. After an extended court battle, flight to avoid prosecution, two ownership changes and several false starts at a new life, what has been called “the world’s most valuable domain name” was reincarnated as a combination tube site, dating playground, live sex market and, according to a spokeswoman, “much more.”

    YNOT.com asked Sex.com’s public relations manager Helena Holland for the details.

    YNOT: Define Sex.com as it exists today.

    content/attachments/22832-edwardshorter_main-jpg.html TORONTO – Edward Shorter PhD pulls no punches when it comes to defining where he believes the adult entertainment industry is overlooking potential profit: BDSM content that appeals to women.

    According to the University of Toronto psychology professor, author and president of consulting firm Edward Shorter Associates, the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon has opened the eyes—and libidos—of middle-class women to a whole range of sexuality they either didn’t realize existed or misunderstood. Shorter said he believes the group is willing to pay for porn…but only if the material is properly packaged and marketed.
