Sex News: Scary handcuffs, BSides, Apple deletes ur email, Geico bestiality

French lingerie company Valege recently released three very creative/unsettling bra ads (like the one above). I’ve sprinkled them through this post for your amusement/discomfort.

  • Holy crap, this story gets weirder. Silenced by court orders and confidentiality agreements, the former members of the Allens’ (Paul Allen family) personal security detail have made vague claims that the Allens were involved in criminal activity and bribery, and that Jody Allen sexually harassed security officers.

  • Despite the media’s growing presumption that consumer-friendly 3D printing will incite a homemade sex toy craze,’s most recent poll shows that while it has potential, the technology is still too infantile to gauge.

  • According to the Daily News, the conservative Christian group One Million Moms took issue with the “Maxwell the Geico pig” advertisement, calling the ad ‘repulsive’. To the Christian group, the ad is evidence of Geico’s worrisome and casual views on bestiality.

  • The Facebook app Bang With Friends has rocketed from 20,000 users to 700,000 in three weeks, with 130,000 matches made, and has even added a ‘bangability score.’ But its CEO, known only as ‘C,’ insists it will evolve into a dating tool for everyone—whatever activity they want.

  • Sexual cannibalism is a specific form of sexual conflict and is highly gendered, with females generally cannibalizing males. We found that females were more likely to be described using active words and males with reactive words.”

    Re: french lingerie ads. I get the amusing, but not really the unsettling. I love how expressive their nipples are, like the nose of a small mammal.

    I’m skeptical about the iCloud emails being deleted because they contain the phrase “barely legal teens,” or any other particular phrase. I just sent an email from my account to my account, with that specific phrase, and had no problem. I’m including the raw message text below (with personal information stripped out) and inviting others to try to duplicate the issue.

    We had the “ban porn” debate highlighted in the UK at the weekend and in the press today following a debate at the Bath Literature Festival, with all the old clichés coming out about protecting women, how porn exploits all the performers and blaming porn for all of society’s ills. For a “debate” it seemed rather one sided going by the reporting, effectively “we agree porn is evil but let’s debate if it should be banned or not”.
