For an Industry that seems to be slowly losing the battle with piracy and copyright infringement, there seems to be a lot going on lately. Maybe itís just circumstance?

Next Wednesday is the annual X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) Show in Hollywood; Thursday is a shoot in which Iím doing a "boy-girl" sex scene; and Friday is the filming of "Screw My Wife, Please Vol. 75," which I host for www.wildlifexxx.com and do my best to get some on-camera sex or oral from as many of the five wives as possible. Maybe thereís some hope for porn production to get healthy again after all, or at least some wishing thinking going on.

I receive a lot of emails from fans of porn. Most communications are asking for information, but every once in a while I get one from wannabe porn starlets. A few weeks ago, a supposedly 18 year old girl from Germany named Laura deluged me with questions about porn sets, sex acts, and what positions she wanted to be filmed in. I insisted that she supply me with proof of age documentation before I would respond to her questions.

While serving in the US Army I spent two years in Berlin as part of the Occupation Forces, so had she supplied me with definitive proof of age I probably would tried to be helpful to Laura. The photos she emailed me seemed to match her age. She said she likes older guys and wanted to be in a porn movie with me and other mature men. Long story shoot, when despite my repeated requests for a scan or email of her driverís license to prove her identity and age, she found excuse after excuse why she couldnít get it done until "tomorrow"; I terminated communications with her (who knows, maybe it was a scam and/or she was actually a "he" pretending to be an 18 year old woman)?

The baloney factor in some emails is time consuming. I cite the aforementioned merely to alert all of us to always be vigilant and alert to all the many scams and time-wasters out there. Time is important now days, so we donít need to lose it on people full of Bs.

Since 1986, Iíve been a member of an international group of runners called the Hash House Harriers, sometimes referred as beer drinkers with a running problem. Itís a fun (hares versus hounds) way to get exercise while also enjoying the participants and the many runs and other events. In the past six days, Iíve done 36 miles of jogging/brisk-walking, much of it while hashing. Today I played beach volleyball with other "hashers," and particularly enjoyed the flashing that the girls do to get a second serve whenever they miss their first one. Last year, one of our members, a jogger nicknamed "Dork," suffered a burst aorta which paralyzed him from the waist down.

Since there were approximately 350 males and 250 females in the different San Diego hash groups, we made certain that he had plenty of visitors, some of whom smuggled beer into his hospital room. Long story short, he passed away last month as I was driving to the hospital to hang out with him and help him pass the time; but, since I was there, I stayed with him for the two hours before the mortuary people moved him to the funeral home, and I even helped lift him from his hospital bed onto the mortuary gurney. As they were driving away, for some almost-automatic response, I came to attention and salutedóI guess it might possibly be related to the militaryís tradition of never leaving a wounded or fallen comrade on the battlefield.

Speaking of the military, last month I had some digestion-related surgery at the San Diego Naval Medical Center, and like some eye surgery I had there last year, I was admitted overnight. Somebody recognized that the Lt Col in room 414 was actually porn star "Dave Cummings" so I soon I had a lot of military well-wishers getting an autograph and cell phone photos as I was walking around the ward once the sedation drugs wore off.

An observation, unlike some non-military hospitals and personnel which are "businesses," the focus of military doctors, nurses, medics, and support people is not money motivated but rather is all about providing top notch care, regardless of the rank or status of the patients. The military will helpfully work whatever extra hours it takes to professionally take care of the patients in their care. Just like when Iím at military bases shopping or whatever, I felt secure and like I was still in the military even though Iím presently in a retired status. God Bless Americaís troops, and their families!

Yes, that was me in a segment of "The Colbert Report" last month where they hilariously had good natured fun about me being the oldest guy ever to be selected for induction (itís happening next week) into the XRCO Hall of Fame; I think they used an AOL News story as the basis for the segment. It certainly was well done, not a "hit piece" against porn.

Summer is coming, so stock up on sun block now ó and, actually use it!
