Sex News: Pornhub’s Facebook play, Ron Jeremy, massage chain assaults, NYC’s sexy cab drivers

  • Pornhub is determined to be to the world of porn consumers what Facebook is to identity management. “This, though, is not a story about porn. It is about power. It’s about how quickly state and corporate interests can climb into bed together. … But it was [Alec] Muffett who summarised it best in an email to me this week. “I am […] horrified that the government – in pursuit of a laudable goal such as child protection – has simultaneously bankrupted independent producers, created a business environment which could be exploited to dubious ends, taught people bad cybersecurity practices AS WELL AS creating Ashley Madison-like databases of hackable material.””

  • Warning for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “… Yet many performers Rolling Stone spoke with say that [Ron] Jeremy’s behavior is not considered standard in the adult industry at all. Some say they believe Jeremy uses his public persona as a lovable lech as a smokescreen for violating other performers’ consent, particularly in public spaces where such behavior would otherwise be considered morally reprehensible at best and criminal at worst.”

  • “When Bruce (Ryan Bones) decides to hang up his cape and cowl, it’s Barry Allen who tracks him down, breaks into the Batcave, and convinces him that his lack of superpowers isn’t reason enough for him to give up on being a hero. In favor of Cyborg—a character who’s probably a bit too CGI intensive to pull off for this sort of thing—the parody swaps in a Green Lantern (Colby Keller) who’s just come out as the world’s first gay superhero.”

  • Warning for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “Across the US, people go to Massage Envy spas in search of a soothing, affordable escape. More than 180 people say what they got instead was sexual assault. But the billion-dollar company says that’s not its problem to solve.”

  • Warning for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “Harvey and Bob Weinstein are being sued by a woman who claims Harvey sexually assaulted her in Cannes, France, but this case is different because it’s filed under the federal sex trafficking law.”

  • “Japan expressed strong regret over San Francisco’s decision to give city property status to a statue commemorating Asian women who worked in military brothels for Japanese troops during World War II, with Osaka declaring it will terminate its 60-year sister-city ties. The signing of legislation making the memorial public property “destroyed trust,” Osaka Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura said. “We will scrap our sister-city relationship with San Francisco.””

  • Warning for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “The Pentagon tried to block an independent assessment of child sex abuse crimes committed by Afghan soldiers and police, instead insisting on the creation of its own report offering a far less authoritative review of human rights violations perpetrated by U.S. allies, according to an aide to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).”

  • “The truth is that content creators in the sex industry — writers, educators, performers, producers, bloggers, podcasters, photographers, etc. — have no supportive social media platforms to turn to any longer. And the platforms we do utilize, like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Patreon, are becoming more hostile every day.”

  • Warning for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. “What stunned them when they first met for dinner were two things. First, how many of them there were, and how common and continuing this problem seemed to be. Second were the similarities in their experiences: after committing their lives to supporting their husband’s ministry, each had been forced to leave after decades of emotional, financial and sexual abuse which had left them depressed, fearful and, for some, suicidal.”

  • “Conservative lawmakers in over a dozen states are pushing a bill that would force consumers to pay a ransom to access pornography … And the only thing more bizarre than the Human Trafficking Prevention Act itself might be the man behind it … Chris Sevier (aka Mark Sevier, aka Chris Severe) once famously tried to legally marry his computer to protest same-sex marriage, and was charged with stalking and harassing both country star John Rich and a 17-year-old girl … Sevier has a warrant out for his arrest in Tennessee (…)”

  • Facebook is quick to ban people like me and anyone posting about human sexuality, but… “Facebook has been accused of refusing to take down child porn and terrorist propaganda posted on the site, despite being made aware of it. Robust allegations made by The Times following an investigation claim the world’s biggest social media site could even be prosecuted in the UK, as some material was identified as illegal by a top barrister.”

  • “Elon Musk, billionaire business magnate and tech mogul, has launched a startup called Neuralink, which aims to connect brains and computers using implantable electrodes. Musk hopes that these “neural laces”—a term borrowed from the science-fiction novels of Iain M. Banks—will allow humans to remain competitive with advanced AI. … The neural laces of Banks’s utopian Culture novels are biomechanical meshes that regulate endogenous chemicals, increase memory storage, and enhance intelligence. They also augment orgasms.”

  • “It’s never a good sign when a website markets itself with a phony security award. But that’s what Ashley Madison did prior to last year’s massive data breach. On Monday, privacy officials in Canada and Australia found that the Canadian adultery website used deceptive and confusing practices to make customers think the service was secure. … One problem was the use of a medal icon on the website labeled trusted security award.”

My boyfriend masturbates to Facebook pictures of a girl he’s friends with.

I found out today. I don't know the girl or if he had sex with her before me. I'm really upset. I know that masturbation is normal and would feel really differently if he was looking at porn, where he doesn't know the person but I wasn't expecting this and can't help feeling scared. Especially since she looks so different to me.

He doesn't know that I know and I don't really want to tell him, because he'll know that I looked at his history and anyway, he's not exactly doing anything wrong. Plus he might feel embarrassed.

I suppose I'm just wondering if this is common or if it means he has feelings for this other girl.
