Read This First/Instead HEX and www.HEX.xxx


This page needs a major update, and I’ll be folding various email responses, website posts, etc, into it soon. Until then I’ll leave the older info up in it’s incomplete form.


All shall be revealed… soon. However one of the fun parts of doing the whole project the way we have chosen is we are publishing everything, even when it’s not very substantial. Let’s all help make the little seed grow into a mighty oak of debauchery and sin. For now I’ll be posting out some ideas and as needed moving them into their own sections, so if parts look rough that’s how it goes.

¿What The Fuck Asked Questions?

  • Q) What is HEX.xxx and Obscure Delusion?
  • A) HEX.xxx and Obscure Delusion is an online collaborative community for Writers, Artists, Musicians, and Film Makers. We bring dreams and nightmares to life, with the ultimate end being a combined body of work from word, image, and performance to film.
  • Q) So what is the HEX.xxx part?
  • A) In order to tie the whole creative and production process together and allow people to work on different aspects of the projects in their own time, we use this site as our hub for everything. A deceptively simple question with a complex answer. To keep a fast flow of work going, we also want to foster healthy competition in order to build a better body of work and heal around people’s availability changes and joining/leaving the projects.
  • Q) The Obscure Delusion part is what?
  • A) While we are going to be opening up many different projects in the future, the current focus will be getting the tools to work for a single large project. Obscure Delusion is HEX’s own personal multiverse, and parts of it will be open and collaborative while still under the guiding hand of it’s creator. This will be the flagship Wiki, but as with most things in this type of project it will remain in a fluid state. If you want something done exactly as horribly as you originally envisioned it, you have to lead the creation yourself. Ideas, notions, feelings, things that have been hiding in dark corners… find their outlet here. Many interesting shards of fiction that can be thrown together in interesting patterns find their way here, all part of the Obscure Delusion Universe. I dream and nightmare different aspects of that universe and build it in words and images in the wiki format. Xenogenesis, Zombie Gods and more!
  • Q) HEX?
  • A) HEX is a person, and is the benevolent dictator and caretaker of this entire website and all projects contained within. His name, address, money, time, friends, creativity, dreams, nightmares, insanity, computers, equipment, blood, sweat, and tears are this projects keystone. While site members are invited to both participate in the website including generating content and uploading pictures; we will check all reports of abuse and the final judge is HEX.
  • Q) What other projects are there?
  • A) Currently we have several independent creators working on ideas of their own to bring to the site in one form or another. As the structure of the site is laid down expect our creative team to start to integrate the online tools and workflow into a cohesive whole with their personal workspace.
  • Q) Is this a Pornography Website?
  • A) No! But this site does contains uncensored sexually explicit material unsuitable for minors. You must be at least 18 to enter! If you are under 18 years of age and you do enter, you may be violating local, state or federal law. Access may be prohibited in certain states/countries. If your local laws forbid sexually explicit material, immediately exit the site.
  • Q) Is this an Adult Website?
  • A) Yes! Our vision includes the inclusion of sexual situations and material that is labeled Restricted to Adults. We have also implemented several features both visible and behind the scenes to mark our work as Adults Only. No matter what page is loaded first on the website the Adult Material Warning will come up once. Additionally each page has the Restricted to Adults META tag directly embedded in the code, as recommended by the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP). And finally we are on a .XXX domain, which has its own filtering options and protections as specified by the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR).
  • Q) Can you really host an Adult website?
  • A) HEX has been very careful to check each and every service currently used for the website, and several we are planning to use in the future, to be sure Adult material is allowed. We do have to draw the line somewhere, and for us art and being able to present our material to a wider audience is what is important. There are several very common services such as Paypal and Google Checkout, that do not allow payments for pornographic material.
  • Q) What about the other material containing uncensored depictions of violence towards self or others, drug use or abuse, and psychological material unsuitable for minors?
  • A) There is a line between Obscenity and Art, and while we allow discussion of topics of abnormal psychology, there are strict restrictions. Reports will be investigated and Offensive Content will not be tolerated: content that is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography, relates to bestiality, or depicts non-consensual sex acts. We reserve the right to deal with any content on the site in any way HEX determines is necessary, including using automated tools.
  • Q) Why use WordPress? Who designs the website?
  • A) HEX spent two weeks comparing Joomla and WordPress and finally decided to go with WordPress. Then another two weeks working with WordPress and plugins to get the core site up and running. Trying not to do much designing, just putting blocks together as much as possible. Also lucky in that we can get started for the most part with free or lite versions of plugins before paying for the extra features the site will eventually need. Since then he has refined the site, spent several hundred bucks on hosting, software, plugins, etc; but it has laid the groundwork for a complete collaboration platform.
  • Q) Where is the Pr0n?
  • A) We need people to get involved and get naked, as well as people to keep their clothes on and still get some work done. Look for an application form soon, for now send an email to [email protected] with a paragraph on why you want to get involved and 4 pics of yourself that you feel best represents you. HEX is doing some limited advertising with limited success, and has some other sites to look into thanks to link threads.
  • Q) Is this an Affiliate, Aggregation, Resale, Shell, Index, TGP, Crawler, or “insert type here” Site?
  • A) No, for most types of this particular ilk. We create our own content, and we keep complete control of it, even for those things we decide to share for free. If HEX does decide to license Copyrighted or Intellectual Property from the website for distribution or broadcast, it will not be via such watered down channels.
  • Q) How can this make money?
  • A) We are looking at many different possibilities, and will be implementing a subscription system allowing access to a bucket list of features: behind the scenes, interviews with cast and crew, live streaming, and more. Aside from subscriptions, one time payments for both on demand minor items as well as larger transactions for a package are possible. In addition online auctions of production items including wardrobe and props can help provide seed funding for future projects. This type of funding is in use on several sites, including VODO and KickStarter, and once again we unfortunately are barred from using their services due to our chosen content.
  • Q) Does this site cost money?
  • A) While HEX has carefully selected open source software as the basis of the network, there are quite a few costs associated with running the website. The .XXX domain itself requires fees, the Virtual Private Server that hosts the OS and web server incur costs, and we have already started purchasing commercial WordPress plugins, content delivery network, and hosting.
  • Q) How can a writer, artist, actor, crew member, or other contributor make money?
  • A) By contributing to the project with no hope of making any money at all. Unfortunately we do not have a complete answer to this, as there are many issues in determining how to divide the fruits of our labor. As with so many of the tough decisions, final responsibility falls to HEX to agonize over. Needless to say, there will be much more investigation and discussion on this issue. You are not guaranteed to gain any type of remuneration from your work no matter what it may have been.
  • Q) So who is making money? Who gets paid?
  • A) Currently we are spending, not earning. As such our monetary resources are extremely limited, and are all going into the web platform. As we expand the breadth of the website we will attract people with the same interests and build a pool of amateur contributors in all areas, including adult material. The only possible exception may be a minimal stipend for semi-pro models and actresses to generate the initial works. While not ideal, it will at least be original content based on our works.
  • Q) What is the specifics for your hentai tentacle girl? I mean what do you want her to look like?
  • A) We want someone who can play a female offspring of Cthulhu, complete with occasional tentacles. As such we are more interested in having someone who can pull off playing the part of a being who is undefinable in terms of good and evil than we are in a particular look. It will also involve prosthetic special effects appliances, rigging, and green screen work, all of which can be physically and mentally challenging (we do have a doctor available on-site for some shoots depending on her schedule). Regardless of body type, they must be able to pull off smoking hot sexy on camera and have full confidence in their body image. An interest in multiple aspects of the project also helps, as opposed to being just a hired model, but that goes for anyone interested in the project really not just the one part we’d like to firmly cast now.
  • Q) Were you looking for males as well.
  • A) Right now we’re only looking for female models and actresses, however men (and women!) with an interest in the project in general or who would like to help make films are welcome to check out the website and keep tabs on what’s going on as we ramp this up. We want to make this a true collaborative effort of people connected/coordinated mainly via the Internet, and while we’re looking into how projects like VODO do things we unfortunately can’t use many of the standard channels as we want to cross into topics and situations too adult for most online services.
