  • Dr Brooke Magnanti (formerly known as Belle de Jour) writes an excellent op-ed calling out the faked ‘research’ behind anti-porn hysteria, as the UK awaits the results of deliberations on mandating country-wide ISP-level censorship to “protect the children.”

  • A woman identified as Cameron Knight has apparently been masturbating all over Cornell’s campus, including in the Law Library, IvyGate reported Tuesday. The first of what would become many pornographic videos was filmed in the school’s engineering library.

  • Researchers at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business say the desire to indulge in Facebook, Twitter and other social-media pastimes is among the strongest temptations we now face — right up there with sex and cigarettes.

  • A (former) member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at the University of Tennessee was rushed to the hospital last Thursday after giving himself a blood alcohol content level of .40 — five times the recommended limit. Local news reports immediately surfaced that the frat bro was engaged in “butt chugging” – an alcohol enema.

  • The first rapid home-testing kit for H.I.V. has just gone on sale for $40, marketed as a way for people to find out privately if they have the virus that causes AIDS. But some experts and advocates say that another use, unadvertised, for the OraQuick test — to screen potential sexual partners — may become equally popular.

  • One of many curious postulations about the etymology of jizz – “[The word jizz] was familiar … to friends from Dublin and Kildare, and it wasgenerally used to imply spirit or cockiness. Schoolboys were encouraged to’show a bit of jizz’ and a sergeant-major regularly promised to knock the jizz or jizzom (jissom) out of a squad of recruits.”

  • File under: trying too hard. Clips of a rumored video showing former wrestling star Hulk Hogan having sex was posted online Thursday. Hogan originally said he was secretly filmed; conflicting rumors claim he wants to sue to stop its distribution, but new rumors claim he leaked the video himself.

  • The former assistant curator of the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas has filed a suit against the museum’s founder, who she says fired her then defamed and banned her from the museum after she ended an alleged three-year affair with him and then refused his advances.

  • YouPorn declared this past week that it will soon be on the Xbox 360 thanks to the introduction of Internet Explorer on Xbox Live later this year. Of course, every other website will be accessible via Internet Explorer too.

I saw the story about the Cornell library videos and felt compelled to comment. I’m actually an engineering student at Cornell; it’s interesting to see the news made it this far. I’ve enjoyed your blog and podcast for a while now, I guess this felt like a sign to show my appreciation: thanks Violet!

Take care

Jaclyn Friedman recently began a podcast called Fucking While Feminist where she discusses various aspects of sexuality with people doing work related to sex. Check it out, consider commenting on it in your sex news. Maybe even collaborate and get in on a podcast :)

@Rocky – perfect comment is perfect. nothing says ‘staged scene’ to me like nonsensical inclusion/combination of hardware.

When FB and Myspace were first blowing up big, teen sexual activity went down a bit, as they found something else to occupy their time rather than going to their boyfriend/girlfriend’s house.

I know that this is COMPLETELY off topic, and totally geeky, but the MacBook Air that the Herge-art model is staring into already has a built-in webcam.
