    content/attachments/23012-emu-jpg.html FANTASYLAND, World of Hurt – A friend of mine forwarded me a link to the terms and conditions agreement for an affiliate program. She was considering signing up for the program, but a specific paragraph put her off. So, she asked a fairly simple question: “Does this sound kosher to you?”

    As it turned out, the bit of tortured legalese pretty obviously wasn’t written by or for a company that operates adult entertainment websites. How could I tell? It includes a term effectively prohibiting adult entertainment ...

    On a bright, clear day, I head out for a meeting over coffee with one of the true veterans of porn publicity stunts. A normally effusive man, today he looks weary and worn while nursing his double latte and lamenting the summer of porn publicity stunts that might have been.

    “We just missed so many golden opportunities,” he says, shaking his head almost mournfully. “I mean, Robin Williams dominates the headlines for over a week, and it never even occurs to me to offer his corpse a job in porn? That’s ...

    content/attachments/22979-success-jpg.html You can’t major in “porn economics” at Harvard or study “adult website marketing” at Oxford. Even local state colleges don’t offer anything that can directly prepare you for this unique industry. The people who try their hand at making money in this business arrive here by all sorts of different avenues, but few are well trained and capable when they get started. That’s just the simple truth of it.

    While we’re being honest, the brightest minds in internet marketing typically end up working for mainstream firms, not adult entertainment companies. The truly brilliant people don’t want to deal with the stigma that’s still ...

    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 ...
