Sex News: Wikimedia porn, extreme penis trauma, Texas bans male masturbation [UPDATED]

by Violet Blue on July 3, 2013

  • A man named Yuan was working at a nearby Chinese railway station but did not realize his laptop was hooked to the giant LED screen he was trying to fix – and apparently wanted to watch some porn at work. So when Yuan started playing the (banned) Chinese porn on the train station jumbotron, hundreds of local residents stopped to watch ‘Sex And Chopsticks’ as well. This went on for about 10 minutes before the company which owned the giant screen called Yuan to complain. Yuan responded by disconnecting the computer and tried to hide the evidence by throwing the porn video disc out the window.

Excerpt with details – permits for male sex toys, sex with women only, two years in prison:

The new measure will go into effect on January 1, 2014 which will make many forms of male masturbation illegal. Exceptions include sperm donations, which now must only be performed at a designated hospital facility.

New rules will also require men to sign an agreement when obtaining prescription erectile dysfunction medication which indicates they will not use the medicine for any purposes other than sexual intercourse with a woman.

Amendments added to the bill also require a permit to obtain and possess male sexual toys which could be used to assist people in violating the new law.

Those found in violation of the new law could be sentenced up to two years in prison.

  • Many things in porn are exaggerated, including the statistics regularly quoted to show how much pornography is on the web. In 2010 the largest study ever done into human sexuality published a very different figure for how many of the web’s most popular sites were devoted to porn. The academics behind the research based their results on analysis of the million most frequented sites in the world. Their estimate? Just 4% of those websites were porn.

  • “Diving into Wikimedia Commons is like walking into a hoarder’s photography warehouse. It is a vast, comprehensive mess. More controversially, Wikimedia Commons hosts thousands of sexually graphic videos and images: penises, masturbation (including one shot with a Fleshlight), vulvas, ejaculation (both male and female), santorum, graphic visualizations of Bukkake, and so on. The Commons is so supersaturated with porn that explicit content bleeds into places you’d never expect.” (So true: I find porn there every time I look for ZDNet artwork.)

  • Warning for male sexual trauma survivors: on mushrooms, he apparently somehow tore his own penis off. Police found the naked man screaming and bleeding from the waist down, on his knees outside a school in Michigan.

  • Now, an escalation of HIV, syphilis, genital herpes and other sex-spread infections is spurring demand for knowledge and condoms in China – a country where intrauterine devices and sterilization are the mainstays of birth control.

  • On Friday Facebook announced a new advertising policy for potentially controversial pages, saying it will ban ads from pages or groups containing violent, graphic, or sexual content. This time around, Facebook is hoping to use a short period of human-based review on sexual content before passing the job to computers, the company explained in describing its new policies.

  • Charlie Jane Anders writes, “You might have supposed that a single Game of Thrones porn movie would be sufficient. Or you might have thought the HBO show is already fulfilling your porno needs. In any case, there will soon be two duelling Thrones pornos.”

  • This post is intense. “I am a sex worker. I am exploited in the workplace. The conditions I work under are demoralising and degrading. I regularly go home from work and cry because of the things my employers have made me do, and the ways I have been treated, or been forced to treat others. I’d cry in the toilets, but they don’t let us have toilet breaks.”

“Texas legislature fails on abortion, passes masturbation bill (Tribune Herald) ”

This was actually a satirical article, no such bill was passed or even put forth.

Apparently the ‘Texas Masturbation Bill’, noted in the second item is from a humor site, similar to the Onion – a satire, not the real thing. Taking a look at the other news articles on the “Tribune Herald” site, they are similarly absurd, though not quite absurd enough, in my opinion.

The piece about the ban on male masturbation is satire. Bottom of the right column: “Tribune Herald is for satirical purposes only.”
