  • This week’s target of the largely anonymous hivemind is indie game developer Zoe Quinn, who recently released the interactive fiction novel and educational aid Depression Quest. It’s an unusual entry for the gaming genre, but its out-of-the-box thinking is not what pissed off these predominantly male communities—they claim to be mad about an alleged sex scandal wrapped in what they see as a lapse in ethics. It is neither.

  • A new study of American singles found that during sex with a familiar partner, men have the highest orgasm rates. On average, men experience orgasm 85.1 percent of the time, with their sexual orientation making little difference. For women, however, orgasm occurrence is less predictable. On average, women experience orgasm 62.9 percent of the time during sex with a familiar partner — and this pattern varies with women’s sexual orientation, with lesbian women experiencing orgasm more often than heterosexual or bisexual women.

  • This thing — the Indiegogo campaign for The Glov — has been on every gadget and tech blog hyped as “the future of sex toys,” which we’ve all heard for like the past 20 years.

  • McAfee, the cyber security firm, released a study earlier this year of “more than 1,500 consumers” and found that more than half (54%) “send or receive intimate content including video, photos, emails and messages.” It found that one in three American adults have filmed sexual content on their mobile devices. Digging deeper, McAfee reported that 70 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds receive sexually suggestive content and that (among those using mobile devices) more males than females do so (61% vs. 48%). It also found that 45 percent of adults stored the sexts they received while 40 percent stored the ones they sent. Among those who sent “intimate or racy content,” three-fourths (77%) sent it to their significant other, while only 1 in 10 sent such content to a total stranger.

  • “The latest panic is that kinky people will lure vanilla children into our sexual hellscape through trendy pop cultural depictions of BDSM, such as Fifty Shades of Grey. This nonsense is annoying, but it’s also nothing new. It does, however, raise a question that is often discussed in sexual subcultures but rarely mentioned in the mainstream: Is kink a sexual orientation?

  • In virtually every publication from TIME to TMZ she is introduced by the same four words: “porn star Christy Mack.” You might think “porn star” is her first name and not her profession. Of course Christy Mack’s occupation should not simply be left out of news reports but the way in which her occupation is always in the foreground is troubling.

  • It is my understanding that the perpetrator is still at large with a reward on his head. Christy Mack, model, pornstar and sweetheart, loved by many, was viciously and brutally attacked and beaten by ex-boyfriend Jon Koppenhaver (aka MMA fighter “War Machine”) in Las Vegas on Friday August 8. It’s a miracle she was able to escape with her life.

  • A great interview with one of my closest friends. “Eon McKai made a lot of smut starting in 2006, a time when change was afoot at the adult film production company Vivid Entertainment. Hustler had bought VCA Pictures, and Vivid was being squeezed out and destroyed. Under these difficult circumstances McKai was recruited to launch Vivid Alt.

  • This is such an incredible essay. “At the age of 10, I took a pledge at my church alongside a group of other girls to remain a virgin until marriage… Waiting didn’t give me a happily ever after. Instead, it controlled my identity for over a decade, landed me in therapy, and left me a stranger in my own skin. I was so completely ashamed of my body and my sexuality that it made having sex a demoralizing experience. I’m now thoroughly convinced that the entire concept of virginity is used to control female sexuality.”
