Sex News: Facebook reports BBC to police for reporting child porn on Facebook, Prenda’s porn, the three kinds of porn viewers

  • “Facebook has been criticised for its handling of reports about sexualised images of children on its platform. The chairman of the Commons media committee, Damian Collins, said he had “grave doubts” about the effectiveness of its content moderation systems. Mr Collins’ comments come after the BBC reported dozens of photos to Facebook, but more than 80% were not removed. When provided with examples of the images, Facebook reported the BBC journalists involved to the police and cancelled plans for an interview.”

  • “In a total capitulation, Steele pled guilty in Minnesota to federal charges of “conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud” and to money laundering. And guess what? In 2011, Team Prenda had in fact become porn producers. … “On at least three separate occasions in Chicago, Miami, and Las Vegas, Steele and Hansmeier… contracted with adult film actresses and produced multiple short pornographic films,” says the plea deal.”

  • “Whilst research is mixed on the harmful effects of internet porn and some men are choosing to give it up for good, a new study has shed light on the different types of porn users there are and which are healthy and unhealthy. …a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine has identified three different types of porn user: the recreational, the compulsive, and the distressed.”

  • Bad news for “sex pheromone” products… “The study thus found no evidence that either AND or EST is a pheromone. Those who buy pheromone perfumes based on them would therefore appear to be wasting their money.”

  • “The next battle in the criminal case against Bill Cosby will be whether prosecutors can use his lurid deposition testimony about giving pills and alcohol to a string of women before sex — material that may be disallowed at his trial since the judge ruled most of the women themselves can’t testify.”

  • “Anyway, the proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the semen, so I gave Trak a spin. I’d already been through the needlessly complicated process of having my sperm analyzed in a lab. If Trak could simplify that process for other men and at the same time teach them something about what’s hanging between their legs, I thought, it might actually justify that $200 price tag.”

  • These people are crazy. “A joint resolution in the Tennessee General Assembly condemning pornography as a “public health crisis” that is making men less interested in marrying passed unanimously in the Senate on Monday. …Specifically, the resolution says that more millennials are exposed to porn at a younger age, causing eating disorders, and that “children and youth are exposed to pornography that often times serves as their sex education and shapes their sexual templates.””

  • “Dr. Radosh, 75 and a neuropsychologist by training, calls it “sexual bereavement,” which she defines as grief associated with losing sexual intimacy with a long-term partner. The result, she and her co-author Linda Simkin wrote in a recently published report, is “disenfranchised grief, a grief that is not openly acknowledged, socially sanctioned and publicly shared.””

    Wait wait wait wait… wait. So the same Bible-thumping, sister-fucking legislators in Tennessee who have for years fought proper sex education in schools, are upset because kids are learning about sex from internet pornography?! (Also, it was passed unanimously?! You mean to tell me there wasn’t one adult in that whole room who would go on record as being against this idiocy? *sigh*…)
