Do you have a secret curiosity about the adult industry? Who are the people who are employed in the business of pleasure and why do they do it? Is it all about the money? Or the sex? Can they sleep at night?
Read our candid interviews with people who are involved in this very controversial business and discover the adult industry is about more than porn and sex toys. You’ll discover it’s truly about people from all walks of life. People who are trying to find their niche in the world, and happiness. People who are trying to help others enjoy a healthier, more enjoyable sex life and intimacy with those they are involved with.
People such as sex educators, who provide vital information on sexual health and the best ways to enjoy intimacy with your partner. Phone sex workers, who provide titillating conversations to bring a little boost to someone who wants to spice up his/her day. Erotic dancers who provide a bit of respite for men and women who appreciate a beautiful body. Erotic bloggers whose columns let people know it’s all right to be sexual and to enjoy the sensual gifts nature has given us. There are also those individuals who provide companionship to people who otherwise don’t have it. And let’s not forget sex toy designers whose main purpose in life is to discover new ways to make a body feel good.
Many people believe the adult industry to be exploitive, but you may be surprised at how much good it does for individuals and couples alike. How many marriages are rejuvenated. How many sexual issues are addressed and treated successfully. How many pitfalls are avoided because people are properly educated about their sexuality. How much loneliness is alleviated by being able to spend time with another human being despite how unattractive or socially inept an individual is in the real world.
The individuals employed in the adult industry serve a purpose far beyond providing pornography. They offer information, excitement, and variety that makes for a healthier and happier lifestyle.
These interviews will show that people who work in the sex industry are basically like everyone else. Their livelihood allows them to support themselves and their families. Depending on what positions they hold in the industry, their employment might be racier than most jobs, but probably more pleasurable as well. After all, they are in the business of making people happy. As with any industry, there are proper rules and codes of conduct and those who step outside the boundaries. These interviews will explore the darker aspects as well.
Sex therapist and educator Lloyd Sinclair, a well-respected psychotherapist at the Midwest Center for Psychology and Sex Therapy in Madison, WI, believes that when sexuality is accepted, rather than repressed, people live happier and more productive lives.
Learning about the individuals employed in the industry through these interviews will give you greater insight into that world, the people involved in it and the humanity underneath it all.
Words are any writer's best friend, but it's the rare writer who can support herself solely with her words. Constintina T. is the exception-a wondrously talented writer blessed with the gift of gab. She's 30 years old and lives in NYC. When she's not working on her screenplay or penning articles on pop cultural phenomenon, she supports herself by whispering dirty words into the ears of paying callers. Constintina's customers have no idea that the breathy-voiced fantasy girl on the phone is coolly taking their measure, and that some of her most hilarious, thought-provoking writing stems from her keen insight into

A Chicago native, she currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.

A red-hot mama who teaches, takes meltingly sensual photographs, and was one of
Denver, Colorado is the location of Mistress Saskia's mile-high dungeon. Beautiful and seductive, her talent for playful cruelty has made her the reigning Queen of Midwest kink, a name-brand dominatrix with a nationwide following of grateful submissives and avid fans. What sets Mistress Saskia aside from the hordes of leather-clad, Hollywood-influenced dom-clones who bank on kink to pay their rent is Mistress Saskia's wicked wit and her 12 years of experience in the BDSM scene. If you come to a session expecting a mindless "kitten with a whip," you'll be sorely disappointed: 41-year old Mistress Saskia is the thinking-person's dominant, an
I met Kristin Casey for the first time in 2008 in an Austin, Texas bookstore. She and a friend had taken the evening off from the gentleman's club where they both worked in order to come hear me read from my second book, "Sex & Bacon: Why I Love Things That Are Very, Very Bad For Me." A slender, elegant redhead, Kristin's stunning physical confidence intimidated me. Kristin was clearly that rarity of the adult industry, a genuine dancer-someone who creates art through sensual movement in a venue that, more often than not, favors crass exhibitionism over real skill.
