Internet identities and accountability

September 30th, 2007 at 10:52 pm

Last week I was messaging with a guy who is just climbing aboard the social media train, and I asked him if he had other profiles/online presence so I could know a bit more about him. And he didn’t. I know I shouldn’t be shocked and amazed by this – there is, after all, life […]

Fun with social media

September 28th, 2007 at 5:19 pm

I’ve been playing with some new (well, to me) social media stuff, largely because of my job, but also because it’s fun – plus needing to know about all this stuff for my job helps me justify the time and energy spent on it all. After some prodding from Amber Rhea I joined Twitter back […]

Class, trash, and explicitness

September 25th, 2007 at 10:53 pm

Though it’s a little outside of my job description, at the moment I’m making an effort to get the photo galleries at the PEEQ frequently updated and rockin’ (photographers take note, and if you’ve got sexy, erotic, or interesting documentary photography that hasn’t previously been published for free online, drop me a line at dacia […]

I am a digitivity denizen (no sex for me!)

September 21st, 2007 at 4:49 pm

I just finished reading – well, to be more accurate, rolling my eyes over – a Reuters piece about a new study (done by an advertising company, JWT) that concludes that there is a growing portion of our population that is increasingly dependent on the interwebs, oh noes! The title of the article is “Americans […]

How not to make money: profit-sharing porn modeling

September 14th, 2007 at 8:57 pm

There is no Screen Actors Guild for porno, so you make money by getting in, doing your shoot, getting your cash, and getting out. No matter how well your content does or how many people look at it and buy it, you get your few hundred dollars on the day of the shoot, and that’s […]

My little corner of the pink ghetto

September 12th, 2007 at 1:02 am

Because I’m both a perv and a nerd, the Internet has pretty much always been about sex for me. Unlike some of my geeky compatriots, I wasn’t glued to the green screen of a computer from a young age. My family got an Apple IIGS when it first came out in the mid-1980s, and I […]

Try this on for size: blatant disinterest

September 6th, 2007 at 11:04 pm

This afternoon I was interviewed for a documentary about depictions of sex in contemporary art and notions of “decency.” The fact that I’m massively outside of the mainstream and kinda clueless about decency was reconfirmed. I’ve lived in NYC for the past 8 years, and I’ve worked in sex for the past 6. I live […]

The Internet is not a virtual street corner

September 5th, 2007 at 10:33 pm

“Craigslist has become the high-tech 42nd Street, where much of the solicitation takes place now,” said Richard McGuire, Nassau’s assistant chief of detectives. No, actually, it hasn’t. I know people need things they already understand (like mini-skirted hookers yelling “you wanna date?” from under a streetlamp on a trash-strewn street) to be able to understand […]

Love for sale

September 3rd, 2007 at 2:33 am

My big news of the week is that I have a full time job for the first time since 2003. That feels weird to say because for the last four years I’ve certainly worked more waking hours than the average person would call full time, with rests few and far between, but all projects that […]
