Call them mistresses. Call them courtesans. Call them harlots, temptresses or concubines. For thousands of years, they have commanded the attention of society’s every echelon, from the backwater bordellos of farmland peasantry to the opulent bedchambers of emperors and the glittering screens of cyberspace travelers.
They are biblical, these demi-goddesses. They are history-makers, these scarlet women. They are, in the eyes of many, the most alluring creatures on the planet, capable of conjuring the greatest ecstasies known to mortal man, wrought from an orgasmic crucible that births life itself.
And who else but Stormy Daniels in all of adult entertainment can claim the mantle of international mega stardom? Who else would Penthouse magazine dare name Penthouse Pet of the Century?
House Passes ‘End Banking for Human Traffickers Act of 2018’ Adding New Layer Of Bureaucracy To ‘Trafficking’ Panic
Since the end of World War II, Americans have been swept into at least six significant waves of what sociologists call “moral panic,” which is defined by Stanley Cohen in his classic 1972 book Folk Devils and Moral Panics as when a “condition, episode, person or group of persons emerges to become defined as a threat to societal values and interests.” Cohen also noted that a key characteristic of moral panic is that the perceived “threat” may actually be real thing, but in the public mind, its danger has been greatly exaggerated.
In addition to dozens of smaller-scale moral panics, the six major “threats,” as enumerated in a study at Grinnell College, have been, in the 1950s, comic books, followed by teen rebellion as in the British “mods and rockers” of the early he 1960s.
The 1970s saw moral panic in the form of the War on Drugs while the 1980s scare du jourwas the “Satanic Panic” that saw a wide range of pop culture phenomenon from heavy metal music to the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons as literal products of the devil. In the 1990s, “sex offenders” took center stage as the object of American moral panic.

THIS IS A FREE INDUSTRY-ONLY EVENT - THE WORLD'S LARGEST PRIVATE ADULT INDUSTRY PARTY!
2018 NOMINEES LIST - ANNOUNCED 4-20-18
The 2018 AVN Awards Show took place back in January, but the live event is just one pat of the entertainment experience known around the world as the gold standard of industry award shows. There’s also the cable broadcast of the annual event, which is packed with extras not seen by the live audience.
To give viewers a taste of what’s to come on the cable broadcast, which debuts April 28, there’s a sneak preview making the rounds on YouTube.com. Comedians Aries Spears and Doug Benson join several adult stars in contemplating some of the more quirky toys seen at January’s AVN Show.
The 2019 AVN Show is set for a triumphant return in January, when the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), the AVN Novelty Expo (ANE) and the 36th annual AVN Awards Show take place at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
AEE dates are January 23-26, 2019, while ANE will be January 23-25, 2019. Those two events set the stage for the 36th annual AVN Awards Show, which will be Saturday, January 26, 2019, inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
“We are excited to be back at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas to present what will be the largest expo and awards shows we have done,” says Tony Rio, CEO of the AVN Network. “This is the 21stanniversary of AEE, and we cannot wait to open the doors in January for what will be an incredible experience in Las Vegas.”
Porn superstar and current media lightning rod Stormy Daniels is firing up controversy again with the release of her latest directorial effort, ‘She Likes Guns’, a sexed-up ode to firearms from shock rockers Granny 4 Barrel - up now at YouTube.com.
‘She Likes Guns’, produced by Jeff Tomei (whose previous credits include Jerry Cantrell, Smashing Pumpkins, Matchbox Twenty) is being issued via Mighty Loud Records (and distributed by InGrooves/Universal) by label president and Jackyl frontman Jesse James Dupree is a straight-shooting hit that is sure to get toes tapping with a familiar introduction: “is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”
The provocative music video, which marks the launch of Granny 4 Barrel’s upcoming U.S. tour, was shot last June and features three of porn’s hottest stars, Lily Lane, Arya Fae and Casey Calvert, as they spin barrels, play with fire and cavort together among an enticing array of weapons.
I just wanted to thank all of my friends and family who are supporting my newest online venture
WWW.EROTICGATEWAY.COM with your likes, and follows. I came up with the concept for Erotic Gateway in 2001, which is relatively new compared to my original Select Entertainment website www.selectent.com which domain I registered in 1995 and launched the site in November of 1996. The original archive of the site can be found here:
It took me over a year to get all of the material together for the first site, as you can imagine Digital Media and the World Wide Web were both in their infancy at that time, so the things we take for granted on computers now, images, sharing information, file management, and so on were big hurtles for early online pioneers.
The thing that was so important about the launch of this site was, it was the first Website of it's kind on Earth. There was the Select Site, and one escort service online on the planet, and it was the first and only site where entertainers could be ordered online.
