Sex News: Online Game Sweep, AdultFriendFinder Sued, Online Porn Metrics, Asexuality, Wikipedia

  • A Los Angeles Superior Court judge last week refused to dismiss adult performer Vicky Vette’s claims that her image was illegally used to market AdultFriendFinder in banner ads. Vette, in a suit filed last month, charged that she first viewed an unauthorized photo of herself in an AdultFriendFinder ad on DumpsterSluts.com.

  • Warning: there are terrible sexual double-entendres in this interesting article by my pal Sebastian Anthony. “The largest porn site on the web with 4.4 billion page views per month, Xvideos is three times the size of CNN or ESPN, and twice the size of Reddit. LiveJasmin isn’t much smaller. YouPorn, Tube8, and Pornhub — they’re all vast, vast sites that dwarf almost everything except the Googles and Facebooks of the internet.”

  • Our favorite online geek comic XKCD pokes at geeks and safewords.

  • Jay launched the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), an online community dedicated to raising awareness of asexuality and providing support to people who identify as asexual. The website soon became a rallying cry: first for hundreds, then thousands, and later tens of thousands of people who felt alienated from the sexual stories and imagery that dominate our culture.

  • Wikipedia has plenty of problems—mostly stemming from being synonymous with online misinformation. But Jack Stuef over at FWD took a deeply disturbing look at one issue you might not expect: Wikipedia’s admins willfully refuse to remove child porn, and there’s almost nothing you can do to remove it yourself.

  • Vivid Entertainment made an anti-Santorum video starring Allie Haze, Chastity Lynn, Chanel Preston and others encouraging people to vote for Obama and pointing out the futility of right-wing American politicians’ intentions to outlaw pornography.

  • Sex ed on the decline? New CDC data show a leveling off of the number of middle and high schools that are teaching their students about how to prevent HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy.

  • Rachel Kramer Bussel nails it when she takes Esquire to task about their reductive blowjob article, pointing out that the greater failing rests on the shoulders of a magazine that flaccidly insists that any one sex act be continually misrepresented as a “trend.”

Middle school and certainly high school are a bit too late for sex Ed, I got it in 4th and 5th grade (well high school too) amd that was enough

Knowing a few registered sex offenders guilty of honestly minor offenses (e.g. just over age of consent with partner just under age of consent, but *gasp* both of same sex), I cringe every time I hear of such purges. I know there are predatory sex offenders, but we’re stuck with this stupid one-assumption-screws-all label. I wonder what the break-down of actual offense is across the 3850 banned users… Doubt if any in the media will check or even if the data would be made available without a FOIA-like request that would take many years.

re: blowjobs and enjoying it. A sometime partner wasn’t feeling too into full sex that night, and I asked her to help me in another way. She gave me such a powerful experience, in a large part because she wanted to give me pleasure, and also because she was enjoying it herself. Halfway through I was about to ejaculate, and told her so, she told me I wasn’t allowed to as she wasn’t finished sucking on my manhood, she made it very clear I was to get control and last longer as she wanted to enjoy herself more.

That whole experience was so powerful, as it made it very clear to me that she really enjoyed giving me pleasure, and really wanted me to enjoy myself, she wasn’t just going through the motions. Her passion for a shared sexy powerful experience is one of the reasons I’m moving at the end of the year so we can live together.

I’m willing to bet that Santorum et al haven’t heard of the Streisand Effect, or perhaps they just don’t care, as long as they think it’ll help them in the short term.

But wouldn’t a thinking voter want a leader with Serious long-term plans?
