  • “Film producer Harvey Weinstein has denied raping three women after allegations were made in US magazine The New Yorker. It claims Weinstein forced sex on the women, including actress Asia Argento. In addition, actresses Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette are also among those who say they were sexually harassed by the producer.”

  • “Wow! Jennifer and her team look really professional and ready to take on anything! It’s no wonder their project succeeded and they’re looking to celebrate. Maybe you could trade war stories with them about projects past, or hear some of their stories about what it took to make it this far. One thing’s for sure though, no matter how drunk you get: do not masturbate in front of them.”

  • Pretty sure that in many sentences the author means “gender” where they have written the word “sex.” So frustrating. “I met Adams through InterACT, an advocacy organization for young people who are intersex — meaning they were born with some combination of chromosomes, hormones, gonads or genitals that defy social expectations of sex, including the expectation that sex is dichotomous. “Intersex” is a broad umbrella that is often used to encompass dozens of variations, from unusual karyotypes, such as XXY, to hormone insensitivities that can cause a person with XY chromosomes and internal testes to develop as an externally typical female.”

  • “The piece — “Domestikator” by the collective Atelier Van Lieshout, whose outline depicts copulation — was to go on view on Oct. 19 in the Louvre’s Tuileries Gardens as part of Hors les Murs, a public art program organized by the Fiac contemporary art fair. “This is something that should not happen,” Joep van Lieshout, the collective’s founder, said in a telephone interview [referring to the decision to remove the piece].”

  • “If I don’t feel I’m suitable for the client, I’ll let her know in the most polite way possible. There’ll be a million tale-tale signs but it all boils down to your gut instinct. The way they communicate with you, the questions they ask, trying to haggle about the rates and prove how big my d*ck is, which is a clear indicator that they’re not the type of client I’m looking for. Imagine calling up a female escort and asking her off the bat how tight her vagina is.”

  • “Today’s post is in the nature of a policy notice, reminding everyone that Tumblr (under the thumb of Yahoo as sold down the river to Verizon) switched sides in that culture war when they took the explicit porn blogs dark, making them invisible to the open web when they barred them to search robots and made them invisible to everyone but logged-in Tumblr users with non-default settings.”

  • “(…) as Alex Lomas of Pentest Partners found recently, some of these vulnerable devices are of a very personal nature. Lomas discovered that he could relatively easily search for and hijack BLE-enabled sex toys—a pursuit he named “screwdriving” (after the Wi-Fi network finding practice of “wardriving”).”

  • What surprised you about working in porn?
    There are probably a million things. One of the most obvious things is that I never, ever saw a girl have an orgasm—it’s all obviously really, really good acting. And if you ever see a cum shot in a still, then it’s probably a mixture of soap and lube.”

  • “There were only 26 permits issued in 2015 for Los Angeles-area adult entertainment filming, according to FilmL.A., the local authority that processes film production permits. …Permits issued for porn productions have declined stunningly since November 2012, when Los Angeles county voters approved Measure B, which requires performers to wear condoms during sex scenes. … In 2012, adult filmmakers filed 480 permits, according to a FilmL.A. estimate.”

  • VB note: they neglected to mention that malachite is also breakable, and can crack with razor-sharp edges. I know because I dropped a sculpted malachite obelisk once, and it broke. “An apparent geologist on Tumblr posted a beautiful malachite stalactite that bears an unfortunate(?) resemblance to, well, a phallic object used for penetrative sexual play, commonly known as a dildo. But as soon as Tumblr noted the stalactite’s possible utility as a sex toy, other users were quick to point out that malachite is a poisonous, water-soluble mineral.”

  • “Some 43 million users worldwide have a presence in a virtual world, a number that is expected to quadruple in the next few years. Platforms such as Active Worlds, Blue Mars and Second Life are among the most popular. Players immerse themselves in video game-like environments where you control everything from dance moves to sex positions. On Red Light Center you can join a wild orgy party happening in real time with strangers all over the world. Or do it Kama Sutra-style in, say, a glittering castle on the moon.”

It was the third time in nine years that Galanis had been accused of engineering a financial fraud.”

  • “London Bridge Plastic Surgery clinic advertised its services for labia reshaping in the Metro newspaper. The clinic promised women they could “achieve a more natural appearance” and “relieve the discomfort caused by enlarged labia.” … However, five readers complained about the ad to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) on the grounds it was socially irresponsible to encourage women to consider unnecessary cosmetic surgery. The ASA agreed and banned the advert.”

  • The Nova already looks realistic, albeit more doll-like than human-like (which is likely the goal). It will be very interesting to see improvements once an actual prototype is revealed. Abyss Creations plans to be in the prototype stage in early 2017 and begin taking preorders later that same year.”

  • “I recently came across a list on eBaum’s World of intellectually-gifted porn stars. It’s an impressive catalog, but it’s comprised mostly of straight actors. Inspired by the eBaum list, I am proud to present but a few of their queer counterparts… who are also (at least) as smart as you are.”

  • Panned for not being straightforward about sex, interestingly.Tinder’s new ad in India has been swiped left — rather decisively — on social media. The ad, released on May 7 on Facebook, shows a young Indian woman preening in her bedroom mirror. Her mother enters the room and asks about her plans. The daughter is reluctant to admit that she is going on a romantic date—but the cool mom not only knows what Tinder is, she is also quite happy to have her daughter use it.”
