  • A new study looks at the evolutionary psychology behind our ideas of sexual morality, that is, why we slut-shame and moralize about things like promiscuity.

  • In a dramatic reversal from hardline policy created three years ago, Google — the most powerful controller of information and identity in human history — will now allow users to use any name they want across Google services.

  • Russia’s new obscenity law has created a problem in the movie industry. The law forbidding four swear words stipulates that films using these words will not receive a distribution certificate. This means every single public screening in Russia can only show films with a distribution certificate certifying they do not contain the four banned words.

  • Japanese police have arrested a Japanese artist for sending computer data intended to reproduce her genitals with a 3D printer. This fact would violate national law prohibiting the distribution of “indecent” material. Someone please tell everyone writing headlines about this that the vagina is the INSIDE part, and the vulva is what the artist is reproducing. FFS.

  • After clients pay us in cash, many of us declare the payment, filing taxes as freelance entertainers. Some strip clubs give us W-9 forms, and some porn companies send us 1099s. If we are shut out of banks, we must go to check cashing middlemen who charge exorbitant fees. We can’t book plane tickets or sign leases, putting that money back into the economy.”

  • The FOX News segment was accompanied with the chyron “Bathroom Boondoggle: Are New Gender Signs Just Too Confusing?” They sent Steve Doocy out with the sign and, little does he know, he is about to get spanked by a 12-year-old boy and a few adults. They didn’t chide the sign, ridicule the artwork, or even snicker at the thought of an “all-gender” bathroom. Instead, reality sets in and FOX News was forced to squirm and televise the entire thing.

  • It might not come as a huge surprise that bisexual men are more likely to get tested for HIV than those who identify as straight or heterosexual, but what about the fact that they’re also much less likely to have a primary care physician? The findings are among several new insights the Department of Health and Human Services published on Tuesday, compiled in the first federal study of sexual orientation and health practices that evaluates differences across groups.

  • These sex work set dollhouse miniatures (above) are really cool. But they’d be something worth sharing widely if the artist Leanne Eisen and writer Leslie Tane didn’t think sex work was evil, coercion, and anything other than the uneducated stereotypes perpetuate. They’re neat to look at, but let’s not endorse the biased negative fantasy. Letting us have our own feels and judgments would have been more interesting.

  • Hundreds of customers per day placed orders for the Autoblow 2 during its pre-sale period. Mr. Sloan said he’s shipped out thousands this week alone. Clearly there’s a demand for men’s masturbation toys, but at the same time, they’re still a pretty taboo topic — certainly more so than toys geared at women. Vibrators, after all, are mainstream enough that Barbara Walters has talked about hers on The View, but you rarely hear a celeb — let alone a regular Joe — talk about the magical time he had last night with his Fleshlight.

  • Nan Shi was working as a principal software engineer when her supervisor, industry veteran Maria Zhang, forced her to have sex against her will on multiple occasions, promising her “a bright future at Yahoo“. After coercing her to have “oral and digital sex,” Shi says when she finally resisted Zhang’s advances, the executive retaliated by giving her a bad performance review and removing her as a project lead. When she reported the abuse to Yahoo, Shi says, the company did nothing to stop it, and then put her on what eventually became an unpaid leave followed by final termination that took effect Friday.

  • We’ll be seeing the headlines about this study explode with inaccurate reporting all week long. “Dr Valerie Voon, from the University of Cambridge, told the BBC: “This is the first study to look at people suffering from these disorders and look at their brain activity, but I don’t think we understand enough right now to say it is clearly an addiction. We don’t know if some of these effects are predispositions, meaning that if you have greater activity in these areas are you more likely to develop these behaviours or if it is an effect of the pornography itself – it’s very difficult to tell.”"

  • Maybe the real reason that transgender issues are tougher to talk about than gay and lesbian ones is that it is almost impossible to separate the idea of gender from what we have between our legs. When my 9-year-old nephew was told that Seb was going to live as a man, he angrily blurted out, “But he doesn’t have a penis, does he?!”

  • “In the 1980s, Candice (Candida) Royalle helped empower women when the government and anti-smut, pro-censorship feminists were excoriating pornography. Undaunted, Candida started her own company, Femme Productions, to shoot erotica/pornography with a woman’s vision. Since its inception, it has set the standard for feminist porn.” Her documentary is important, and I hope to see it funded.

  • Part of the reason that breakups are so insanely painful: Research shows that the discomfort people experience when looking at a picture of their ex shows up in the insular cortex: the same brain area that that’s active when you strike a nerve in your tooth, which scientists say is the most extreme physical pain you can feel.

  • What would it take to end sex trafficking and forced sexual labor without harming the lives and livelihoods of sex workers? We won’t know until we start listening to sex workers and making their needs part of the strategy.

  • The opening credits sequence for Showtime’s Masters of Sex, which returns Sunday for its second season, is one of the most divisive on television. A suggestive, tongue-in-cheek montage of some of the most enduring sex metaphors and symbols, the sequence has made numerous best-of lists and earned a recent Emmy nomination for Outstanding Title Design — but it has also attracted some hate.

  • A sex worker injected lethal doses of heroin into Google executive 51-year-old Forrest Hayes before stepping over his body, downing a final swig of wine and then leaving him to die about his yacht. Contrary to headlines, she was not a “high-end escort” nor was he an upstanding family man. The married exec met her on a “sugar daddy” hookup website, continuing a relationship with her for some time, and police say she is under investigation in another state for a similar case. While police initially booked Alix Tichleman on second-degree murder, Santa Cruz County Superior Court confirms that prosecutors have charged her with eight counts including felony manslaughter, destruction of evidence, and transporting and providing narcotics. Hayes was an executive with Google X, the tech giant’s experimental lab, according to USA Today and Forbes. Google X focused on the company’s “moonshot” projects such as Google Glass and driverless cars.

  • A judge in Maryland granted a warrant for police to take a picture of a 17-year-old’s erect penis — an extreme adult reaction to teenage sexuality, one which would manufacture child pornography. His crime? He was sexting with his (also underage) girlfriend. In a sick twist of irony, the poor kid is being charged with possession and manufacturing of child pornography.

  • BaDoink Magazine CEO Todd Glider penned an open letter to Google questioning and criticizing its decision to strongly enforce its policy to bar adult companies from advertising via AdWords. In particular, Glider considers anti-porn group Morality In Media’s (MIM) public announcement of personal victory, citing a meeting between Google and the so-called “family values” group where the latter asked the California-based company to eliminate sexually explicits ads and any linkage to pornographic material, “no matter how benign their advertising.”

  • If you really want to know if someone is into you, never mind what they say. It’s all in how they say it.

  • Since the decline of Prenda Law, the most litigious copyright holder in the US is Malibu Media, a porn company that runs the website X-Art (featuring James Deen and Belle Knox). Last year, a judge sanctioned Malibu for including exhibits that listed “expanded surveillance”—that is, copyrighted material supposedly downloaded by the defendant but not owned by Malibu. In a Michigan case the company asked the defendant to supply information about every adult website visited in the last two years, by any member of the household.

  • The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation spent $1.1 million dollars in grants last month in the effort for better safer sex.

This is the second time the foundation has given such a hefty sum to condom research.
