  • Recent reports of crackdowns by Chinese officials on young female fans who write slash have sent waves of alarm throughout international fandom waters.

  • As part of a kinda-infuriating, kinda-hilarious segment on how Beyoncé is to blame when black teenagers get pregnant, The O’Reilly Factor aired an image of Queen Bey’s Butt. Taken from the “Partition” video (above), it shows Beyoncé from the back, wearing a sparkly, two-tiered black thong.

  • Sexual self-knowledge is crucial for everyone, but especially for porn stars, who make their living in the bedroom.

  • Last week, adult performer Christy Mack tweeted a proposition: “Whoever builds me the best Lego creation to put in my house gets a blowjob.” After a popular and playful response on Twitter, the Lego challenge drew to an abrupt close yesterday evening when Mack tweeted that lawyers for the company had contacted her, objecting to her usage of the Lego name.

  • This might be one of the most -quietly- important articles about sex work to date. “Really, “stereotypical pimps are far less common and important to street sex markets than would be expected.” In their sample, only 14 percent of female underage sex workers in New York City (and 6 percent of the males) had a pimp.”

  • Asa Akira always knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. “I’m part of the new era of porn,” she tells The Post. “We’re feminists, very sex-positive people. We’re not victims of rape, not drug addicts, we don’t have any daddy issues.”

  • This past Monday, porn star Teagan Presley arrived home in Las Vegas from yet another whirlwind strip club appearance tour and found a letter from her bank. Chase was closing her bank account, which was listed under her legal name, as well as the account of her husband. When Presley went to the bank in person to ask why, she was told it’s because she’s considered “high risk.” She is one of what is estimated to be hundreds of adult performers targeted by Chase.

  • Jumping on the opportunity to do business with adult after Chase Bank’s move to shut down porn industry workers’ accounts, Wells Fargo is offering a friendly port in the financial storm. Wells Fargo is welcoming all porn stars that claim Chase has shut them out. A company representative said, “Of course we encourage these industry workers to come to us with their business and we will gladly help them.”

  • What a stupid, awful, abysmally disappointing name… Lee Roy Myers announced via Twitter that Wood Rocket—a porn and comedy site (as if we had to tell you)—will be releasing a porn parody of Doctor Who in May. The site already produces parodies like Game Of Bones and SpongeKnob SquareNuts, and it will now add Doctor Whore to its repertoire.

I think “Drs Where, What, How, When and Why Not” would have given them the chance to show more than one regeneration. Or, more simply, Dr Whoa.

It’s a shame that the female condom isn’t a bigger thing. I happen to like them. I did like the original marketing name, “Reality,” because the pamphlet that came with them was a great, great thing: “Always use a new Reality with each and every sex act,” “Reality may make noise during sex,” “Keep Reality out of the reach of children.” Who wouldn’t love a product like that?
