  • What do you do when Facebook compares you to a porn star? Well, if you’re irreverent marketing consultant and author Erika Napoletano, you run with it. Napoletano recently realized (after receiving what she describes as “a metric fuckton” of emails from friends) that fans of her Facebook page, Redhead Writing, were being recommended to also follow fellow redhead (and TinyNibbles friend!) Camille Crimson, adult video star, entrepreneur and geek.

  • The Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees New York, Vermont, and Connecticut, determined that using an erection-measuring device as part of probation for one sex offender was an “extraordinarily invasive” and a violation of due process. The judges wrote, “We find it odd that, to deter a person from committing sexual crimes, the Government would use a procedure designed to arouse and excite a person with depictions of sexual conduct closely related to the sexual crime of conviction.”

  • Mr. Skin, the celebrity nudity expert made famous by Howard Stern and was featured in “Knocked Up” has launched Mr. Man (Nude Male Celebs), the male version of Mr. Skin: a massive high-def database of nude scenes from mainstream movies and TV, exclusively focused on male nudity and guy-oriented sexuality.

  • Colleen Singer writes, “I had our webmaster run the traffic stats on what may be happening this week on Erotic Scribes and on sssh.com and, lo and behold, there is a 900% increase in porn surfer traffic coming in from Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C. and pretty much everywhere that there is a large population of “non-essential government employees” that are now sitting around at home looking for some entertainment.”

  • Manwin attorneys yesterday filed a brief with a federal appellate panel over its application to trademark its MomsBangTeens brand, which was nixed by an examiner on a single ground: ‘the applied-for mark describes in vulgar fashion the act of older women having intercourse with younger persons between the ages of 13 and 19.’ In court documents, Manwin counsel told the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Trial and Appeal Board that it disagrees with the examiner’s finding that the word “bang” is vulgar, citing that the word on its own is harmless and that when used in an erotic context it is “non-offensive.”

  • “We’ve got a long wait until Game of Thrones returns next March… but fear not! Episodes of Game of Bones, the porn parody from director Lee Roy Myers, will start appearing on the Web in just a couple of weeks. (Including a female Joffrey!) We’ve got the first exclusive teaser and cast photos, plus an interview with Myers.”

  • The title of this post is egregiously misleading (and technically untrue), the article actually begins in the 5th paragraph, and the conclusion weaving on OkCupid is unfounded and sensationalist – but Prof. Raquel Hill’s examination of sex research and identifying study subjects is interesting.

  • With 1,500 hardcore films to his name, including titles like “The Ass Collector,” global porn icon Rocco Siffredi is perhaps uniquely positioned to dole out advice to middle-aged couples on how to rekindle their sex lives. The unusual part is that his primetime reality program, “It’s Up to Rocco,” premiering later this month on Rupert Murdoch’s free-to-air terrestrial Italo channel Cielo, is being touted as a family show.

  • Sir Ian Dunham interviews the novelist Allan Gurganus about his new book, “Local Souls,” which has been compared to John Cheever’s randiest suburbia, to Humbert Humbert’s bedtime stories for an underage “Lolita,” and to Grace Metalious’s 1956 popular novel of village erotics, “Peyton Place.”

  • Sex is a traditionally a taboo topic in China — leaving some adults with no idea how procreation works. New, private classes are changing that.

  • Scientists have found that since we would be harmed by a certain sex act, we presume others would be harmed as well. In fact, cultural relativism is the most glaring sign that the lion’s share of our sexual ethics is arbitrary, given that our intuitive feeling of what’s “normal” and “deviant” hinges largely on our cultural indoctrination.

I’m assuming Rocco’s advice is, “don’t neglect the butthole”. If so…. sound words, my friends, sound words.

Game of Bones? Oh, good… because I always thought Game of Thrones would be a better show if they’d be less uptight, and show a little skin every now and then. (Yes, that was sarcasm, and no, I could not help it). Seriously though, it’ll be impressive if they can fit as many sex scenes in the porn parody as the original material, and still manage to have a semblance of plot.
