When a love for art turns into lust - Sex News, Sex Talk - Salon.com
Romanticizing the act of writing or any other art is not very helpful to the artist or the art. It's much better if one simply does. It worked better for me when I was just a writer, a working person. I've never felt that I needed a special desk with a special light coming in from the window at a special angle. It's work, not so different from that way you fix dinner or you pick up a child at school.

The Associated Press: Nev. brothel hopes male prostitutes boost business
The owner of a Nevada brothel suffering from the recession thinks she has been ignoring about half the market — the half that prefers men. [...] Meanwhile, Davis is drawing up her help wanted ad. She said she'll be looking for one or two men "in good shape, in their mid-30s to 50s." Asked about the age range, she notes that's another way women differ from men.

"Look at George Clooney, he's 50 and he's still considered a very sexy man. Women don't consider a man washed up by the time he's 50," she said.

Nerve.com Hires New CEO, And New Plans To Downplay Nudity - BusinessWeek
Nerve is an unusual Web content business in that it has four revenue streams. They are: personal ads, premium subscriptions, licensing (mostly books) and advertising. The personals, which Griscom says remains a growing business even after new ways to connect online with MySpace and Facebook arose, literally saved the business during the online ad drought earlier this decade.

The new Nerve will have no subscriber- and member-only areas—though the untitled new site for nerve’s photo archives will charge a subscription fee--which means it will tack somewhat against some current sentiment. Many newspapers, facing severe revenue droughts, are openly discussing a willingness to try new subscription models for online content.
