Murdoch Lingerie Blush Ad - Germany

  • German lingerie maker Blush nakedly (or almost nakedly) piggybacks on the Murdoch and News International phone hacking scandal in new ads mocked up in News of the World style, complete with scandalous headlines aimed at Rupert and James, as well as Rebekah Brooks. Murdoch Scandal Now Helping to Sell Lingerie in Germany (Adweek)
  • It [male-on-male rape] is a sex crime that is so common the numbers almost equal that of female victims during times of war. It is a double taboo with hidden victims. And it is a secret so well kept that even the UN has been accused of overlooking it. The silent male victims of rape (Al Jazeera English)

  • New research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology shows that when great pleasure is expected, women are just as likely as men to say “YES” to casual sex. When Are Women Into Casual Sex? (Psychology Today)
  • Ah, the threesome. Is there anything that inspires so many fantasies? And is there anything as likely to cause complications in your relationship? How to Have a Happy Threesome (BlogHer)
  • Thomas Monopoly had all of his Google services removed without recourse, and turns out is was over a Google automated false-flag for child pornography – in a series of artworks in which he was calling attention to content he felt was inappropriate in an art show entitled “The Evolution of Sex.” (TwitLonger)
  • 24,000 followers might not stand out in the ranks of mainstream celebrities, but for a man who most would say is merely a prop, James Deen has quite the fan base. Most of those followers are women, and they are not quiet about their affection. “Reading James Deen’s blog until my parents walk in,” tweets one young woman. What It’s Like To Be a Male Porn Star (AlterNet)
  • The producer of the 2009 Exotic Erotic Ball faces felony charges for allegedly writing at least $10,000 worth of bad checks and using a fraudulent credit card to cover expenses for the lascivious event. Exotic Erotic Ball promoter faces felony theft charges (San Jose Mercury News)

Surfrider oil bikini calendar June

  • Highlighting last year’s catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the calendar shows scantily clad models wearing nothing but oil. It was designed to help recruit new volunteers to the Surfrider Foundation. Oil Bikinis in Sexy Surfrider Calendar (My Modern Metropolis)
  • In a stunning display of ignorance, Huffington Post Books saw fit to include Patrick Califia’s “Macho Sluts” in their list of Most Ridiculous Book Titles Ever, along with books on farting. Arsenal Pulp Press called them on it. (Twitter)
  • By now many if not most of you have probably read (or at least heard about) the latest Melissa Farley product, a bogus study for Newsweek (published on July 17th) which purports to “prove” that virtually all men hate women. Blinded by her own unreasoning hatred of men and sex, Farley has at last exposed herself to widespread scrutiny. A Load of Farley (The Honest Courtesan)

Al Jazeera is a million times better and more relevant than anything owned by Murdoch – seeing this quoted here reminds me of how cosmopolitan/wide-ranging you are – thank you!

FWIW, I think the lingerie ads are insanely inappropriate, but maybe that’s just me.
