The Extasy, a Northridge club featuring nude dancers, will remain open through the weekend, despite action against it by the Los Angeles City Council and building inspectors. "We're open and we're planning to stay open," said Steve Gamer, a spokesman for the club on Corbin Avenue near Nordhoff Street. "We're going to adhere to the law. We plan to fight any attempt to close us down."

When 43-year-old porn actor Tyce Bune goes to work these days, he makes sure to pack something extra in his briefcase along with the usual script and change of clothes: a vial of Viagra tablets. On a typical day, when filming can stretch on for 14 hours, Bune will strip down and have sex in front of a camera crew as many as three times. During busy times, he might work five days a week.

The first sex shop in Russian history opened to the public on Monday--only, please, its management insisted, don't call it a sex shop.

I found the story regarding older adults' favorite weekend ["Adult L.A.," Aug. 23] so boring -- though these mature hipsters' voices were long overdue.

A feud has broken out among competing Los Angeles trade shows, and it's getting nasty. Also, it's about sex. For the last few years, the biggest show celebrating the adult entertainment industry at the Los Angeles Convention Center has been Adultcon, which is expected to draw an estimated 30,000 visitors during three events this year. But the managers of Adultcon have announced that they are canceling two of next year's shows because the city has refused to bar competing adult entertainment shows from operating at the convention center within three months of Adultcon.
