  • For Observer Rex Reed writes about the new sex surrogacy film, “The Sessions, a wonderful movie with splendid performances by John Hawkes and Helen Hunt, as well as a careful and sensitive screenplay and flawless direction by writer-director Ben Lewin, is the best movie about the pain, ecstasy and life-enriching courage of a handicapped person that I have seen since Jon Voight’s Oscar-winning work in Coming Home.”

  • An Argentine national sex symbol who shot to fame with a series of erotic soft-core films has been appointed to an official position within the country’s government. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said Isabel Sarli – the first Argentine actress to perform full-frontal nudity on screen – would be “a true representative of national culture” as Argentina’s new ambassador.

  • This week, Mediabistro’s PR blog PRNewser is currently running a series called “PR and Porn” – and while it’s interesting, the reader caveat is that the series focuses on one PR agent and his start client Joanna Angel, and is only a small and specific slice of the huge porn PR pie. They’re on part five “Joanna Angel, the Brand” as of this writing.
