    YNOT – Piracy seems to have a chokehold on many companies, performers, crew members and other players in porn production. Why shoot when you might not recover production costs, let alone make a profit? The number of performers and productions has thinned considerably. My personal access to sex via porn shoots is way down; almost nonexistent lately. Thankfully, swinging continues in what seems like an expanding way, so I have access to sex via that avenue.

    One of the odd side-effects of piracy is that, due to larger numbers of people illicitly downloading porn from the ...

    YNOT – Elections are coming up, and we all need to register to vote — now, not next week — and then we all need to vote no matter what. No, you can't put off your voter registration. And, yes, you must vote on or before Nov. 6. If you think bookings, work, family or anything else might keep you from getting to the polls, apply for an absentee ballot now so you can mail it before election day. Do not put anything off. Our America needs all eligible citizens to vote. Make your voice heard, without fail.

    I'm not going to pitch any particular candidates or issues, but I urge, beg and pray that ...

    YNOT – Time speeds by, sometimes very rapidly. Heck, this summer will soon be over, and before we know it we’ll be dealing with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Xmas, and the start of yet another new calendar year — again! As I’ve gotten older and older, the time seems to jet by faster and faster.

    Note to self: Start taking some time to do nothing.

    While on the staff and faculty at West Point during four of my 25 years of military assignments, I was involved in professional development, management and leadership. Among many other duties, I delivered lectured about effective time management to other West Point officers. Now it’s me who needs to ...

    YNOT – Well, the old guy (me!) finally gave in and now has a cell phone. I was the lone long-term holdout among a bunch of Hash House Harrier (Google it) running club friends trying not to be pushed into being tethered to living in the tech age. Those who were once part of the initial group, and who previously succumbed, subsequently applied nonstop pressure on those of us still resisting. Now, like them, I can watch porn on my iPhone 4S when circumstances allow. As the last one standing, I won a lot of beers from the others — beers I’ll already have consumed by the time you read this.

    I gave in on the ...

    YNOT – I was born in the 1970s, and like most young girls of that time, I assumed I would grow up and become a princess by marrying Britain’s Prince Andrew (that was a near miss, hey?) or failing that, become a veterinarian, saving puppies and kittens for a living. Absolutely nowhere on my list of dream careers did I notice “become the founder and owner of an adult mobile company (and yes, my parents are proud!).

    What I’m trying to say is that I am the most unlikely person to be heading up an adult mobile business for the past nine years. As such, I probably have a slightly slanted view of the adult industry, what it represents and how to make money from it.

    As a result, I have ...

    – Ah, the 1960s — or, to be more precise, the end of that decade: 1969. Richard Nixon was President of the U.S., the Beatles gave their last public performance, the Stonewall riots provided a rallying cry for gay-rights activists, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs was born and.… Oh, yeah — man landed on the moon.

    During this frenzy of great achievement, an odd thing happened in the world of publishing. At the time, erotica was dominated by — to be polite — less-than-literary (or, for that matter, literate) fiction by writers like Jacqueline Susann (Valley of the Dolls) and Harold Robbins ( ...

    YNOT – For many years, my monthly column has been titled “From the Trenches.” Now, because of the devastation resulting from rampant piracy and the impact of the weak economy, I’m having difficulty finding the trenches so I can write about them. Where did the trenches go? What trenches?

    I understand many actresses and actors (called “talent”) also are searching for the trenches, which, like foxholes, usually represent a haven in the midst of a hazardous situation. In their situation, the trenches are porn shoots, the numbers of which appear to be tanking. Why should the remaining studios ...
