Monday Nibbles: Anti-Male Lies About Porn, Feminist Porn Awards 2011, More…

by Violet Blue on January 24, 2011

* Above: the trailer for my first app – Total Flirt (based on my next book) – which will be available *very* soon for Apple and Android! I can’t wait! I made the video this weekend, and details on updates are in Now Live: Total Flirt App Video. (thetotalflirt.com)

* We desperately need more articles like this. AlterNet responds to that awful article in The Atlantic, and delivers a piece of writing that – if they ran it – would save Guardian UK from their anti-porn oblivion. You must read The Anti-Male, Anti-Sex Falsehoods That Rule Discussions about Porn and Sexuality. (alternet.org)

* Call for submissions: Feminist Porn Awards 2011 – it’s that time again! The awards will be April 8-16 2011 and now is the time to submit entries. (goodforher.com)

* Pipedream Products markets a new male masturbation toy with the sales copy, “She’s everything you want from a woman, without all the bullshit.” My response: Dear Pipedream: fuck you – Sincerely, us humans. Early to Bed’s great response: Taking a (little) stand against misogyny. (early2bed.com)

* The fabulous online free ‘zine SanFranSexy Issue #5 – January/February 2011 is here! Free .pdf is packed with great articles and hip sex advice, and includes a queer-flavored SF sex calendar of events. (sanfransexy.com)

* So good, so hilarious, so perfect – Dan Savage does a version of his column for Foreign Policy, as if Silvio Berlusconi was asking for a little “Dear Faggot” sex advice: Confessions of a Sexaholic. (foreignpolicy.com)

* Gwyneth Paltrow upskirt, for those who like beige: Errr, Your GOOP Is Showing. (Dlisted.com)
