Thursday Nibbles: Naked Street View Guy, Naked Skeptics, Free FaceTime and Streaming Porn on Black Friday

by Violet Blue on November 25, 2010

* Did you hear the one about the naked guy in the trunk (boot) of a car caught on Google Street View? Google deleted the image, but it sure is… curious. Curiously German? (news.cnet.com)

* Everyone has discounts this friday, but who has free porn on Black Friday? Video on demand site Hot Movies for Her (and all Hot Movies sites) is offering free porn from 5AM EST to 10AM EST to all account holders! Nice. It gets better: according to their press release I got Wednesday, FaceTime porn company IP4Play (live ‘cam girls’ available on iPhone, iPod and Skype) is having a 100% off sale all day Friday. (vod.hotmoviesforher.com, ip4play.com)

* Teens send sexy texts. We know this. And the same adults who want to try them as child pornographers probably sent dirty notes to each other in class, too. Reason Magazine asks, can we stop this ridiculousness already? (reason.com)

* Devs and other interested parties: client side nudity detection, in an open source Java implementaion. Thoughts? (patrick-wied.at, via HN)

* Some crappy things happened recently for gay and trans people. One HUGE item is that the UN General Assembly voted that is is like totally okay to allow gays and transgender people to be executed without cause. There is no silver lining here. (thenewcivilrightsmovement.com)

* Speaking of trans people, the National Center for Transgender Equality put together a must-read for trans people on how to deal with the new TSA (in)security theater insanity — including how to know your rights. (transequality.org)

* A media outlet is trying to lure me to Las Vegas in January to cover AVN. I would not hesitate if I knew they were putting me in The Palms’ Erotic Suite. (Random side note: what do you think that room smells like?) (palms.com)

* The Palms doesn’t have a Vatican Room — yet. The Pope last week said it was cool for male prostitutes (only) to wear condoms to prevent the spread of HIV, and I was extremely disappointed that no one in mainstream media said a fucking word about the fact that gay sex workers got the reprieve before female sex workers. Now, why would the Pope be wanting to make sure the manhookers were safe first? Heterosexual sex work was, apparently, an afterthought. (rawstory.com, msnbc.msn.com)

* The Skepticon — a conference for skeptics of the atheist variety — is over now, but before going Greta Christina did a post about some pervy skeptics: and the photos of the naked skeptics calendar for 2011 are worth a click. (gretachristina.typepad.com)

Good point about the Pope and sex workers …
