  • Ah, good old girl-on-girl hate. When will we learn that women of all sizes, shapes, and even hair colors are our sisters?

  • Semen cocktails are a thing. Oh Amazon, you endless supplier of mirth, thank you for the bounty that is Semenology - The Semen Bartender's Handbook.

    I have never been as excited as now to finally see a recipe book for semen aficionados. How I have struggled thinking up ways to incorporate baby gravy into evening cocktails, only to have my husband spit them out in disappointment. Now, thanks to this wonderful book, he can finally swallow his man juice! I will soon become an expert mixologist, able to make even the most boring rum and coke into a fascinating journey of the spunk senses! I only hope that this book contains detailed instructions for the Hairy Potter, with how to make it explode just right.

  • Skinny rockers in spandex. Back when rockstars were sexy, feathered their hair, wore earrings, and actually played rock music. Sigh

  • An amazingly well written essay by Emily Witt. She tags along at a Kink.com Public Disgrace shoot and well... see for yourself..

    Princess Donna arrived with a small entourage, wearing a vacuum-tight black minidress that flattered her exceptionally perfect breasts. Donna is an extraordinary physical presence in any group of people, and her stature plays integrally into her authority. She is five foot seven with long, almost alarmingly thin limbs that make her seem taller. She has large, brown, Bambi-ish eyes that, the night of the shoot, were complexly shadowed and wreathed in fake eyelashes, which Kink purchases in quantities of several hundred at a time.
    The panda gangbang took place deep in the basement of the Kink armory, where rivulets of the long-suffocated Mission Creek still trace a path between moisture-eaten columns, and the air hangs heavy with a stony dampness. On the day of the shoot, a glow of warm light punctured the center of a cavernously empty space. Bathed in this warm glow, a young woman named Ashli lay sleeping, impervious to the styg-ian immensity of her surroundings. Her sleek black hair was draped over her shoulder; a small silken bow of the palest pink pinned it away from her face into a girlish side part.

  • It's tricky business trying not to fall into the same old stereotypes about female porn stars. Unfortunately, Deborah Anderson falls into the pitying, negative narrative about porn stars even though she is trying to "help."

  • Should your porn be ethical and feminist? Or should it just be hot? I duno about you, but I enjoy my porn a whole lot more when I know everyone enjoyed what they were doing and got paid pretty well. If you care about that sort of thing, here's a list for you.

  • I'm still not sure where I stand on this issue. Remittance Girl takes the stance that authors have no obligation to depict safe sex and idealistic characters. What do you guys think?

  • It's about time. Didn't you ever think all of that porn money could be put to good use? Come4.Org is a new porn site that will donate 1 percent of its revenue to charity. It will also work to diversify the type of porn that we see online. Sounds like my kind of porn!

  • Have you ever thought about the stuff you stick in your orifices? You probably should. With all this uproar about GMOs and BPA, it's amazing that there hasn't been closer scrutiny on sex toys. Plus, you know it's time to invest in higher quality toys when they melt into a pool of goo.

  • Academia and porn, together at last. As a dork who has spent too much time thinking about things like this, I'm only sad that this journal wasn't around when I was a budding academic.

  • Encrypt. Now. I'm not supporting child pornography, but this is a good reminder of why digital security is such an important issue. You can't be forced to decrypt your own data. Good to know.

  • Anyone who can write the phrase, "The metaphysics of cocksucking" is all right by me. Stoya is a new type of porn star.

    Stoya's contract requires her to show up in Southern California about 46 days out of the year to film X-rated videos like Stoya: Web Whoreand Stoya's Haunted House. The remaining 319 days, she's paid not to have sex on camera anywhere else. That's time for building the Stoya brand: porn-convention appearances, sure, but also composing essays on her Tumblr and for theGuardian and Vice, where she writes a regular column about "the pitfalls of heteronormativity" and the "metaphysics of cocksucking."
    Stoya loves her job, and it shows: She giggles so exuberantly throughout her sex scenes that an early partner, Mick Blue, initially thought she was mocking him. Stoya, Pop Star of Porn (The Voice)

  • A kid from Connecticut heads to New York and everything goes crazy. Ben Peck tells us how he transformed from a cum laude Columbia graduate lawyer into a porn star. No matter what he does, this guy is hardcore dedicated to his work.

    Ben Peck:

    Most Europeans I met seemed more interested in self-improvement than professional ambition and money. No one ever ask ‘what I did.’ Instead, they wanted to find out ‘who I was,’ what drove me, a question for which I had no answer when I first arrived in Berlin.
