The most controversial figure in adult entertainment presents a no holds barred discussion about the future of the business. Rob's insight is spawned from having grown up around the adult biz, as his father owned several adult bookstores throughout Western New York.
Rob was the owner of Extreme Associates, which was at the time considered an outlaw in the biz because of its edgy content. Such fare is commonplace now.
Rob and his wife Lizzy Borden paid an extreme price for innovating adult, as both spent a year in prison on federal obscenity charges.
Rob also owned XPW - Xtreme Pro Wresting, which was one of the top wrestling organizations in the world, with a weekly national TV show, employing such superstars as Shane Douglas, X-Pac, Sabu and the late Chris Candido. XPW folded in 2003 after Extreme was indicted.
Join Rob and his friends for a lively 2 hours of explicit talk. No topic is off limits. No subject is taboo.
Today's I share my own life's journey from losing a brother to the disease of bipolar to facing what might be my greatest achievement. If you wonder how you can claim to be spiritual or Christian or to trust any force greater than yourself and take medication for bipolar disorder or any number of other conditions, you probably don't talk about. This is the place to find out we all feel the same way. It is shameful and weak to need medication, right?

Show yesterday was awesome. I would like to thank everyone that listened, the guest in the chat room and our caller out of Maryland, Greg. Some of what Greg said on the show yesterday got me to thinking. Especially when he said that it was not the resposibility of good Black men to check and or rid their communities of the crafty con artist type Black males. Of course this logic is shocking to me and I was wondering just how many other good Black men feel the way Greg does? Why is it that the destructive Black male is so visual and out front in Black neighborhoods while the good law abiding Black man, Fathers, Business owners ect... seem to (always) be the invisible silent types? Someone on FB even said that nobody listens to the married men. Again I want to know, Why? Has the good Black mans good reputation been used against them by their more rambunctious, minstrel cooning street wise brethren? Are responsible elite Black men out there handling their business as visualy and publically as those they claim to be the thugs, shyters, pimps and players are? It seems that Black men with all the wisdom and knowledge on how to live a civilized, drama free life are keeping those SECRETS to themselves huh? So I would like to know if this imbalance of the good Black man vs the devious ones, harming the image of Black men as a whole? Does it cause their women to see them as WEAKER. And the world to lump all of them into one box? Tonight I want Black men (only) to call in and answer these questions. ooohhhh i can't wait.
