With the bleeding edge of media technology well-honed on the financial backbone of adult entertainment, it has been established that mature content is a perpetual early adopter and economic promoter of new methods of media promulgation.

From the first risque bitmaps encoded as text on publicly available Usenet newsgroups, to mobile-to-mobile intimate video messaging shorts, we the people have embraced each advance in networked media with open arms and wide-open minds. We hope to evoke productive, thoughtful discussion of the prurient side of Internet life: how it facilitates growth of our sensual identities, the challenges it faces in a conservative world, its role in our interpersonal lives, and what lies ahead.
