  • Bad essay title, fascinating individual account. “Ah, you people with penises. You bemoan the lack of sexually confident women and then baulk at the idea of a female deriving sexual pleasure from the same sources that you do. The average man’s response to my [porn] pastime would vary from open mouthed shock and curiosity – “Really? How often? What websites do you use?” – to supreme discomfort.”

    This is going to explode as it all comes out over the summer months. For centuries, the church has maintained a second set of books containing sensitive documents such as notes on priests’ alcohol abuse, disputes over parish funds and, later, molestation allegations.

Speaking of condoms, does anyone know why all the hypo-allergenic latex condoms have all disappeared off the market? We’re back to two choices– lambskin and latex, neither of which are appropriate for people concerned with practicing safer sex who also have latex allergies.

One piece one the anti-porn front that might have passed by unnoticed was a letter published this week in the UK’s Guardian signed by 14 lawyers acting with 2 groups – UK Feminista and Object – suggesting shops should stop selling any of what we call “Lads’ mags” (i.e. lots of bikinis, boobs and bums and covered nudes but nothing frontal) as well as anything that shows “pornographic” front covers else the staff could sue the shop under the Equality Act 2010 as well as suggesting customers that are “exposed” to this might “suffer”.

It’s the normal sort of nonsense from the Guardian under the guise of censoring the media because these groups don’t like the idea of porn so want everyone to suffer, indeed, laughably, they compared selling the magazines (which now are largely covered up when at eye level in the bigger shops so you only see the name of the magazine) to instances of workers being sacked for watching porn on work pcs and a case where a woman in police employment had male colleagues watch porn on TV and put up porn on the walls of the workplace.

The #losetheladsmags twitter feed has rolled out the old chestnuts, linking the sale to rape and violence against women
