The Original...

Misusing the information superhighway since 1995!

In addition to our mega-fame on the internet, we did also make appearances in the mainstream media a few times, as well! We're kind of a big deal. (Fine, not really, but we certainly had our 15 minutes.) Here are the ones we can remember:

Most recently, we were featured in a chapter of a book called, How Sex Changed the Internet and the Internet Changed Sex by Samantha Cole.

We were also mentioned in a book several years ago called Obscene Profits: The Entrepreneurs of Pornography in the Cyber Age by Frederick S. Lane III.

Further back, into the nineties, we were featured in a short-lived magazine simply named, "Web Magazine." Cindy Crawford was on the cover, I remember... we might still have a copy around here somewhere...

It's probably wherever my issue of Hustler's Barely Legal is. I wasn't an official model (and certainly Hustler is not exactly mainstream), but I can say that they published a photo of me back when we (and they) were just getting started with our website(s). It was in their amateur submissions section that I think was called "Corky's Clubhouse," which was comparable to Hustler's "Beaver Hunt." I actually originally sent the picture to Hustler for Beaver Hunt, but they apparently decided to put me in Barely Legal instead. I was kind of annoyed at the time because I thought, "I'm 20! How am I "barely legal?" I'm a woman dammit!" I know, I was very cute.

New York Magazine included us in an article titled, Seven pioneers of amateur web porn look back. Just don't look at the picture of me (focus on Dave, he looked fine), it's horrid. I know women often say that, but really... I was so lost in a serious mommy fog at the time. I don't know where my sense of style went for a good decade or so.

Baltimore's now defunct City Paper (since absorbed into the Baltimore Sun) featured us a couple of times. Once was back in 2000 when a staff writer (I think the column was called CyperPunk) secretly attended one of our our parties and wrote about it. I can't find that article archived anywhere, but it did lead us to being interviewed on the local radio station 98 Rock, by the morning crew at the time: Kirk, Mark, and Lopez. I'll have to dig up those old photos, sometime.

I was also on the cover of the City Paper back in 2012, with an article titled, "Up and Down (and up and down) with Baltimore County internet-porn pioneers Jen and Dave." At the time, we wanted to hide our faces for reasons. It's a pretty good article... I won't complain about the things I don't like about it (or the photo chosen FOR THE COVER) anymore, because I know it's just vanity. However, I would like to explain that we only had one cat at the time, but he was very old and was having issues with using the litterbox. Also the "Christmas decorations" were just some wrapping paper (that I thought looked fairly neutral) which I was using to cover up where the kids had drawn on the wall. We're weird but there usually is a perfectly reasonable explanation behind our weirdness. Usually.

There have been various other offers over the years, including from HBO and MTV, but we just weren't feeling those for, again, reasons. There have also been other little things... I know there was a photo of me in a Canadian newspaper once! :-p

If you happen upon anything that mentions us, please do let us know! We're not ashamed to say that we'd love to see it!
