  • LOVE this article: “When I entered the industry, we were staying in French chateaus. Now, companies are struggling to stay alive. Somewhere in 2006, we began to run out of licks. Only a year after Digital Playground produced “Pirates,” a porn movie with a $1 million budget, online video began attracting actual pirates, and they didn’t wear custom-made bras or sell for $69.95.”

  • South by Southwest Interactive, the Woodstock for geeks, kicks off next week. As the geeks at Blogads HQ combed the schedule of events, some keyword trends in panel titles emerged. Monday is not only the most popular day for sexy panels, it’s the buzz-word-iest day of the entire festival.

  • Guardian UK lifts her skirts to once again step across the filthy puddle of pornography: “Some of Ruff’s blurred Nudes, gleaned from pornographic websites, impart a lyricism to the images. Others lay bare the nastiness of the industry.”

  • I saw Sex and Zen 3D. Kill me now: a sequel to last year’s breakout hit/breakout penis film 3-D Sex And Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is already in the works, with producer Stephen Shiu vowing it will breach a whole new dimension in genital immersion. Yes, 4-D Sex and Zen: Slayer Of A Thousand From The Mysterious East will feature “4-D” effects – namely, the addition of vibrating seats.

I like the fact that American Apparel has sexy ads. Too bad their clothing is so boring and unappealing.
