Sex News: Dan Savage, Erotic Hypnosis, Mad Men’s Lingerie, Brazil’s Legal Rape

  • A very important porn project: Public Sex, Private Lives is an intimate look at the professional and private lives of porn performers Lorelei Lee, Princess Donna, and Isis Love. Unlike previous films on the porn industry, Public Sex, Private Lives neither glamorizes nor condemns the work, but instead reveals the ambitions, dreams, and relationships of the women who do it.

  • The acquittal by Brazil’s Supreme Court of a man accused of raping three 12-year-old girls on the basis that they were allegedly “sex-workers” is an outrageous affront to the most basic human rights and it has no place in Brazil today, said Amnesty International.

  • What many are calling the worst erotic novels they’re ever read wrapped in a clever PR campaign (and I call “Fifty Shades of Marketing” – seriously, have you tried to read them?) – Variety reports Universal and Focus Features won the movie rights to “mommy porn” trilogy novels, Fifty Shades of Grey.

  • Swedish porn mogul Berth Milton – of Private Media Group – is set to be the subject of a forthcoming feature film billed as a cross between “The Godfather” and “Boogie Nights”. This way to the hype machine…

  • Rachel R. White writes, “From what I could gather, erotic hypnosis is a fetish, but if its proponents are right, it is also a new form of sex—safe, certainly, but also dangerous-seeming in its own way. Under hypnosis, it was claimed, a subject could achieve a climax without being touched at all. It’s also a twist on BDSM, an expression of sexual power and submission at its most extreme.”
