  • What kind of perv writes code in the nude!!?? Don’t answer that. Finally, you “naturists” can make some money – besides, I can only employ a few of you at a time: Software firm wants naked web coders (Orange UK, thanks to everyone who sent this in!)
  • Always the picture of class and finely attuned to what consumers want, especially as they have been in the “novelty” business for decades, leave it to Pipedream to make yet another stupid celebrity sex doll for a minute of attention. But were they betting on the attention of celebrity lawyers? Miley Cyrus may sue over sex doll (The Sun)

  • Portlandia pussy? Not so fast. Get an eyeful of Portland Pussy. (portlandpussy.blogspot.com, warning: SFW)

  • Post about sex trafficking and sex workers get defensive; post something normalizing about sex work and anti-sex workers shriek that you support trafficking: finally, a clear voice in the emotionally charged politics: Sexwork is to Trafficking as Sex is to Rape (Charlie Glickman)
  • Now that Egypt has changed, it sucks to hear that women – a major face of the revolution to Westerners – are being sidelined in the new structure. (Spoiler alert: it will be worse in Libya.) Worse, they were sexually humiliated and violated during the protests: Egyptian Women Forced to Take ‘Virginity Tests’ During Protests (Amnesty International | Green Prophet)

Um…that nude coding thing is bizarre. Not that I’m above coding naked when I’m working from home! Interesting publicity stunt; be interested to see what happens when they turn someone down for a job on the basis that they’re not a naturist. Wonder if that’s allowed.

That being said, nothing wrong with instilling a more casual dress code to the office. Works wonders for my productivity when I don’t have to get suited up to go to work.
