Kink.com’s Girls Require Money
by Reviewer Rob
Here’s a pic of the girls that were at the Kink.com booth last month when I was shooting photos at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. The dark-haired girl on the left looked at me with those soft eyes when I asked her like I usually do if I could snap a picture of them then she smiled and told me that they were “selling photos for five dollars now.” I thought about it for a half a moment, shrugged and said “okay” quietly under my breath, taking a fiver out of my wallet and spinning it down onto their table. As I did I asked her if I could “get all three” of them for five dollars and motioned towards the other two girls – a short Asian sexpot and a severe looking woman with bleached blond hair.
I asked them to stand together for the photo but the blond stepped back and said something about photos being ten dollars now. The first girl said something qiuetly to her that made the blond reconsider and grudgingly she got into the frame.
Hey – four days at AEE in Vegas and with all the photos and video material I got in its coverage – I considered five dollars a good deal.
The Adult Entertainment Expo would have been grossly insufficient of course without Kink dot com being properly represented. The adult website based in the historic San Francisco Armory has reached legend status. Peter Ackworth, the British owner of Kink dot com, bought the building in 2006 for $14.2mil and made it into Kink.com’s production headquarters with plans to also use it as a kind of public edifice in the future where space can be rented out for different events.
I’m making a working tourist visit up there soon.
“The building was constructed as an armory and arsenal for the United States National Guard in 1912–1914 and designed with a castle-like appearance in a Moorish Revival style. The Armory was built on part of the site of Woodward’s Gardens (1866–1891), a zoo, aquarium, art museum, and amusement park which covered two city blocks, bounded by Mission, Valencia, 13th, and 15th Streets. The structure was built as a replacement for the old San Francisco Armory in the Western Addition, which had been destroyed by the 1906 earthquake. In addition to its role as an armory and arsenal, during the 1920s, it served as a venue for sporting events, such as prizefights.
“The Armory served as a stronghold and rallying point for the National Guard in their suppression of the 1934 San Francisco General Strike (an event known as “Bloody Thursday”)” ~ from Wikipedia
Even with the overall decline of paid internet porn the Kink.com organization is probably riding pretty high financially right now in the wake of the whole 50 Shades phenomenon.
Below are a couple of trailers from their recent documentary, produced by James Franco (Date Night, The Interview):
Second International Cannabis Business Conference

GROWING MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY USHERS INTERNATIONAL

Business leaders and legal experts to offer guidance for budding entrepreneurs in
advance of expected legalization in 2016
San Francisco, CA (February 9, 2015) – With three Pacific Coast states voting to
legalize cannabis for recreational consumption, and California expected to do so in 2016,
savvy businesspeople are already planning for the impending multi-billion dollar
Alex Rogers, CEO of Northwest Alternative Health and producer of the upcoming
International Cannabis Business Conference said the political and business landscape for
cannabis is growing rapidly, and the trend is likely to continue. “Colorado and
Washington are already generating millions of dollars in new revenue from marijuana,
and a new study by economic consulting firm ECONorthwest estimated that retail
cannabis sales in Oregon will generate approximately $38.5 million during the first fiscal
year, with revenue expected to increase.”
The event will feature well-known headliners including guidebook author and TV host
Rick Steves, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, renowned advocate and TV commentator
Dr. Carl Hart, Ph.D., among other legal experts, investors, entrepreneurs and even
accountants. For a full list of speakers, please click here.
“Colorado and Washington State have already demonstrated the economic benefits of
legalizing cannabis and Oregon and Alaska will soon benefit from new jobs and new
revenue brought into the states’ coffers too,” said Rogers. “California, with its economic
power, will clearly be the worldwide leader in cannabis commerce if the state passes full
legalization in 2016.”
