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.

I hate having to do this post, but I update it every couple of years as it saves me time repeating the same answers, to the same questions and hopefully if current or prospective models read this, it may save them heartache and expenses. There are countless stories of girls who’ve wanted to make a big splash in the industry (and may have done) – moved location, quit jobs, lost friends and damaged their mental health, before realizing that their expectations are often not met.
You can make a living as a trans adult performer – but you have to … Read More
Starting what was to become Grooby in 1996, I didn’t consider it a serious business. It was an easy tool to receive free porn and make a little pocket money on the side.
