  • Femfresh, the brand specialising in feminine hygiene is facing an escalating social media storm about its terms for female genitalia. Yesterday it updated its cover photo on its Facebook page claiming that Femfresh is ‘one of the kindest ways to care for your kitty, nooni, lala, vagina, froo froo!’.

  • License to Pimp is a hopeful feature documentary on Kickstarter about the choices that three San Francisco strippers make as their workplaces engage in illegal labor practices.

  • Warning: this CNN article may trigger sexual abuse and trauma survivors and this link is not an endorsement of the article. As stories of sexual abuse emerged from the Jerry Sandusky trial, and as the public looks on with horror, a central element to the case that has received scant attention is pedophilia itself.

  • Gov. Andrew Cuomo and leaders of the Senate and Assembly reached agreement on legislation making all viewing of child pornography online illegal. It is in response to a Court of Appeals ruling in May that said New York’s law was outdated, technologically, because it required a viewer to download or otherwise directly access child porn for it to be considered possession.

  • Spammers – not hackers, as the title states – are wooing patsys with free porn or games in exchange for help cracking CAPTCHAs on targeted websites, security researchers say.

  • An ongoing “upscale” swingers sex party was shut down at the Mondrian SoHo hotel this weekend after security guards got wind that this wasn’t just a normal photoshoot. The party organizers claim, “The hotel security wanted to gain access because we had a famous celebrity show up.”

  • Just a few hundreds yards from where global powers worked around the clock this week to ease Europe’s debt crisis and revive the world economy, the customers at one hotel were oblivious to the stress and letting it all hang out.

  • Mr. Gu, an unmarried pharmacist in north China’s Jilin province, never aspired to be a champion for privacy, much less porn. Yet, sometime this spring – probably in March – Mr. Gu, possessor of 95 downloaded pornographic films on his hard drive, uploaded the wrong photo to a popular Chinese bulletin board.

  • Novice reporter Ye Yunfeng was sent to investigate when Xi’an TV station received a tip-off about the ‘strange fungi’ growing in a Chinese village. Believing the well-used, filthy Fleshlight insert was a ‘rare medicinal Taisui mushroom’, Ms Yunfeng then proceeded to film an in-depth feature about the “mushroom”.

I was meh about Kate Upton at first, but I’ve seen some interviews and she’s engaging, self-deprecating and funny. This video of her doing the dougie at a baseball game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcJScBLIEX4 is charming.

plus, uh, boobs.

Criminalising the viewing of child porn is pretty dangerous. When I was a teen with an internet connection, I wanted to see other teens naked, so that’s what I searched for. One day I got an e-mail with an offer of a DVD with under-18 content on it, the day after I read an article about the FBI using such methods to trap pedophiles. I freaked and changed what search terms I used, didn’t get any more e-mails like that.

The thing is, I reckon it’s natural for a 16 or 17-yearl-old to want to look at pictures of other people the same age naked, the problem is that commercial images of such things are illegal, and probably should be. Is it illegal for a 16-year-old boy to look at commercially-produced images of a 16-year-old girl? I guess it is.

That sex toy in China is *not* a Fleshlight. It’s a cheap knock off.
