Sexuality

  • 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

Porn

  • 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."

  • 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?
