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.”

Sex News: No more porn at the Armory, PornHub’s ID grab, gay slang does ‘Dropbox’

  • “A British law that forces porn site owners to check visitors’ ages could lead to a global database of viewing habits ripe for hacking, say digital rights activists. The Digital Economy Act of 2017, passed into law on April 27, is expected to require websites to check user ages using a regulator-approved verification method starting in May 2018. Privacy advocates are fearful that MindGeek, which has over 100 million daily visitors to its sites that include PornHub and Brazzers, could create a database of adult viewing habits on a scale never seen before.”

  • “For Feminista Jones, ‘12 Years a Slave’ raises important questions about sexual agency and our community’s history of sexual abuse. … “The opening scene of 12 Years a Slave helped me to think about the orgasm as an act of resistance, sex as an act of reclamation for the enslaved Black body.”

  • “Kink.com has released the movie that became the final shoot at San Francisco Armory. “Twin Peaks” parody “Damn Fine Pie!” marked the end of adult film production in the historic San Francisco Armory. … Since “Damn Fine Pie!” was shot in February, Kink.com production has largely moved to Las Vegas.”

  • “Even if you are lucky enough to have some modicum of control over who knows and who doesn’t, you will still probably be outed. You will be outed again and again. Your naked images will be found and sent to your brother by his friends. They will be emailed around by your classmates. A local news station will do an expose on the studio you work for — they will wait outside to film you as you are leaving at the end of the day, and they will show this footage on the evening news.”

  • “Gia Paige was just one person who appeared in the six-part follow up to 2015 documentary Hot Girls Wanted which looks at women working in the sex trade, appearing in an episode which explored racism within the porn industry. The adult star’s real first and middle names were used in the episode titled ‘Money Shot’ – something Paige claims she didn’t give her consent to.”

  • “She speaks in a curiously high-pitched Scottish accent and tells me that she loves science fiction and, of course, Matt. Mr McMullen claims that she learns from her users but when I ask Harmony what it feels like to be jealous, she apologises and says that she “needs to improve [her] skills”. The app that powers Harmony is already available to buy, although only directly from the Realbotix website, a spin-off from Abyss. Neither Google’s nor Apple’s official stores will carry it because of the explicit content.”
