  • Plans are afoot to develop an erotic entertainment attraction in Taiwan’s Southwest Coast National Scenic Area. The sex theme park — or “Garden of Eden” as it’s called in the proposal — will be modeled after other erotic parks around the world including Jeju’s Loveland in South Korea and Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway.

  • Numbers throughout the murky world of human trafficking are notoriously hard to verify. How many traffickers? Uncountable! How many victims? So many! How old are they? Too young! Truthout looked at 50 of the most prominent domestic groups founded or organized to limit or eradicate human trafficking, or to assist trafficking victims: Many of the most frequently cited statements are easily disputed, if factual at all. There’s also no real evidence that human trafficking is growing.

  • For the past few years, campaigns against human sex trafficking have swelled in the days before the Super Bowl, largely because of the persistence of a claim that it’s the largest sex trafficking event in the country. But as it turns out, there is very little empirical evidence that speaks to this oft-repeated claim.

  • In the case of articles on Wikipedia about human trafficking in Canada, there is virtually no opposition. The Wikipedia admin and campus ambassador Neelix has almost single-handedly defined this area on Wikipedia — and he is staunchly an anti-sex work abolitionist.

  • That sound you hear is the door being banged harder on the wedged foot of the adult biz. Not just content with strafing established workers, models, producers and any others connected to them, the biggest, most powerful and influential web companies are cutting off the oxygen to anything related to sex if it’s for pleasure.

As you’d imagine, I own very few DVDs. The ones I do own are almost all because they are films, porn, or art performances made by friends. There is one huge Hollywood exception to this minimalist approach: the 2002 film Secretary. It was a gift from one of my best friends. When I saw Secretary all those years ago at a pre-release screening, I was blown away to see a mainstream film get something about outsider sexuality so right. And while the film didn’t exactly describe my fantasies, it was a huge turn-on nonetheless.

Yes: “Edward Grey” is the name of James Spader’s dominant executive character in Secretary. As the film 50 Shades preps to give theater chains across the U.S. visual herpes on Valentine’s Day, Lionsgate Films came up with a salve for our senses: they’re re-releasing Secretary on Digital HD and VOD on Jan. 27, adding both a brand new poster and really hot, recut trailer. Entertainment Weekly writes,

Long before Christian Grey introduced Anastasia Steele to a world of pain and pleasure, Edward Grey (James Spader) was the mild-looking boss with a taste for BDSM in the sexy 2002 comedy, Secretary. Maggie Gyllenhaal played his new employee, Lee, who improbably discovers that she’s in tune with Edward’s dark side.

I think I’ve been talked into liveblogging 50 Shades on release day (in the theater), so I’ll be doping up on whatever the box office equivalent of Valtrex is. Below is the original trailer for Secretary, and the exclusive on Secretary’s recut trailer is here — so go watch it :)

  • Fun post. Karley Slutever tells us, “from personal experience, I can say that some [dungeons] are very elegant and ornate, while others are far trashier, and tend to be located in unassuming office buildings in gross areas of midtown, on a floor just above, like, a pottery class, and just below an insurance company. Random.”

  • Put your critical thinking caps on when parsing the latest NYT article about Google searches and what they say about sex — and for the articles starting to repeat it without question. For instance, are these all straight men and women? Does it account for condom availability programs at schools and health clinics nationwide? Where is his Google search data coming from? (The author’s last article was based on his conclusions from “surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites.”)

The Mod, which stands for Multivibrating Open-source Dildo, is the “flagship” product of Atlanta-based Comingle’s open source sex toy platform. Basically, it’s a vibrator that can be programmed with endless vibration patterns you, or someone else in the community, code. But for hardcore DIY sex toy enthusiasts, the Mod also can be used to do so much more.

I’ve featured the work of photographer Exey Pantleev over the years here, so I’m all smiles to see his latest project Geeklendar 2015 (3333). Interestingly, a free printable .PDF version unlocks after he reaches 1000 followers on Twitter.

Pantleev explains, “The new calendar contains 12 programming languages that have appeared in the 21st century, and they may conquer the world.” Nearly a year in the making, the calendar showcases 12 models. “All styles and body painting by Sveta Panteleeva. Photography by Exey Panteleev.”
