About This Blog…
Running an adult company for over 21 years has been an experience, often duller than people would expect, there have also been the mega-stories you’d expect from a porn outfit. Most of my day is spent at a computer working with models, photographers and customers. This is my personal ruminations of running a prominent adult company – my thoughts on the industry, my current projects and funny emails – the websites, the models, the photographers… and occasionally, the customers.

Grooby Girls is my baby. I started it, I helped it grow, I spanked it a few times but mainly nurtured and watered it so it could take on a life of it’s own. I’m extremely proud of it, and very defensive of the site, it’s ethos, the models and everyone involved in it over the 25 years. There have been many producers, we’ve had over 2200 models shoot for the site, we’ve had tears and we’ve had joy. If this look back at the 25 years of GroobyGirls seems a little egotistic, then I hope you’ll forgive me as … Read More
2021 started with the hangover of 2020, and the ongoing Covid crisis which has closed us down in some areas, so we had to continue to mitigate where and who we worked with. A lot of girls have wanted work, and looking back over the first 6 months of this year, there are a lot of scenes I’m unhappy with.
Returning models who turned up, frankly looking like crap – or new models whom we wanted to try, but over-sold themselves. It’s not all been bad, there have been some really awesome returner as well as new girls – Ariel … Read More
To say that 2020 was a crazy year would be an understatement. Buddy, Nicky, Mike and I were at a Tame Impala concert, 3 days before the TEA pre-party and upon leaving, heard that California was closing all indoor events. A few hours later, having assessed the situation I made the call to postpone (and eventually cancel) that years TEAs before flying back home a few days later. Since 1996, I’ve travelled about every 3-4 weeks, either for work or pleasure and the only times I’ve stayed home longer was for the birth of my children. I makes for an … Read More
In 2019 we moved to our current format, which includes a weekly hardcore scene, a ‘Try out Tues’ which will always be a brand new girl, and a one-shot ‘Cumshot/Orgasm Monday’ scene. Weds and Fridays have reshoots, and at the weekend we show our older content, re-worked in better quality. I know we’re not the cheapest site on the internet, but also know, that there is no other trans site which gives you better value for money. While not every model will appeal to every fan, each week there should be enough real hits for each supporter.
2019 had some … Read More
In 2018 we rebranded to GroobyGirls.com. It was something we’d been working on for two years. Nicky had joined us to do merchandise designs, and we’d been sending out ‘Grooby Girls’ or ‘Grooby’ shirts, hats, stickers, etc. The goal to associate ‘Grooby’ more with the sites, and it was Danny who’d coined ‘Grooby Girls’. The exposure of trans people into mainstream media, and adult content has changed a lot since we started. When I came up with ‘Shemale Yum’, at no point did I expect that to become a divisive and derogatory term. It’s what the girls called themselves (that … Read More
