​This week's cover riffs off a classic porn scenario--we're guessing she ordered the sausage--at a time when the industry is grappling with the new problem of digital distribution. The feature by Emily Kaiser uses one local boy's adventure in pornland to survey the business's many burdens, from overexposure of surgically-altered blonds to the impossibility of putting the naked genie back in the bottle once it's been uploaded to YouPorn.

"The entire porn industry is in trouble," says Lux Alptraum, editor of the sex-oriented blog Fleshbot. "Adult entertainment used to be a business that was considered recession-proof, but it's hurting like everything else."
