  • Adult movie company ZIZ Entertainment recently auctioned off several costumes featured in its cosplay-themed porn videos Taimanin Asagi and Taimanin Yukikaze, which is based on the adult computer games by the same name. And people are willing to pay top dollar, er, yen, for the used outfits.

  • Visit SFRedbook.com, MyPinkBook.com, or MyRedBook.com right now, and you’ll only find the seals of the law enforcement agencies—the FBI, the DOJ, and the IRS—that seized the sites as part of a prostitution and money laundering investigation. The seizure is part of a disturbing trend of targeting sex workers, but more than that, it is an attack on the rights to free speech and free association exercised by a diverse group of people, many of whom have nothing to do with the alleged crimes.

  • Michael Biehn, who appeared in such sci-fi blockbusters as “The Terminator” and “Aliens,” is sticking to the genre with “Fembot,” the next movie he and his wife, Jennifer Blanc, are making. The plot imagines a not-too-distant future where citizens can buy a robot companion designed specifically for them.

  • Last week ABC’s Nightline ran a story about female libido pill Sprout’s new tactic with the FDA. If the piece is a harbinger of things to come, it’s looking good for Sprout. True liberation, apparently, comes in the shape of a little pink pill.

  • “Yesterday I finally made it out to Q-Toys, the only store in Austin that carries only safe, non-toxic sex toys, for a g-spot workshop… Yes, a sex educator started the g-spot workshop by saying that no one knows if the g-spot exists, and if it does, no one knows what it is. She drew up a diagram of vaginal anatomy, but with ??? instead of labeling the g-spot.”

  • “I keep accidentally watching porn where girls drink their own pee,” a straight male friend named Alex recently lamented. “My dick went limp in my hand,” another male friend said of the moment when a group-sex scene morphed into the horrifying depiction of one performer’s digestive troubles. Nevertheless, he watched the whole thing.
