Sperm out the nose. Braces. Barf…. and – I was so glad to see – just as many stories from blowjob givers, as from blowjob-receivers. Enjoy! Or… cross your legs… What are your bad blowjob stories? NSFW (Reddit)

I think this is one of the most frightening “pornography laws” ever: The Anti-Pornography Bill 2011 proposes that those found guilty of abetting pornography be fined up to 10 million Ugandan shillings (£2,500) or jailed for up to 10 years, or both. Simon Lokodo, Uganda’s ethics and integrity minister, who proposed the Bill, said: ‘Any attire which exposes intimate parts of the human body, especially areas that are of erotic function, are outlawed. Anything above the knee is outlawed. If a woman wears a miniskirt, we will arrest her.’ Ugandan women wearing miniskirts face arrest under new anti-pornography laws (Mail Online)

Sometimes the differences may be at chromosomal or gonadal (ovaries and testes) levels. So – what has been happening to these babies? The answers are upsetting.

Animal New York presents us with an artist’s hypnotic CGI animation/test footage of an avalanche of fleshy, bouncy, shiny penis-dildo hybrids.
