Sex News: Netflix series outs sex worker, GOP and Red Pill, YouTube fixes LGBT censorship, all about nunsploitation

  • “Netflix’s new documentary “Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On” is ostensibly a series about the intersection of sex and technology, but its main focus is the treatment and experience of women in the porn industry. Now, at least four sex workers feel the show itself has exploited them — by allegedly featuring them without their consent and, in one case, outing a performer’s real name.”

  • It’s the birthplace of Milo Yiannopoulos and nurturer of mass murderer (of women) Elliot Rodger. “Last November, voters in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region re-elected to the state house of representatives a man who appears to be one of the secret architects of the internet’s misogynistic “Manosphere.””

  • “It took a long time for Odiele, now 28, to come out of hiding, but in January she came out publicly in Vogue, and instantly brought into focus the sixth – and least appreciated – letter in the queer acronym, LGBTQI. “For a lot of people, the first time they hear about it is when they talk to me,” Odiele says. “Most people really have no idea.””

  • “A hacker has planted both pornographic and intimate images of homosexuality on more than 250 Isis twitter accounts. The hacker, known only as ‘WauchalaGhost’, began targeting accounts 18 months ago on the principle that he had to oppose the terrorist organisation’s hatred. He has been threatened with beheading by the group. He took the decision following the Orlando gay nightclub shooting, replacing hundreds of profiles’ pro-Isis images with Pro-LGBT messages. He frequently tweeted links to gay pornography.”

  • Starts by describing what they’re wearing, unfortunately. “A lot changed for these women when, about a year ago, a law was passed making paying for sex in France illegal. Chloé points to a few younger girls on the other side of the street. “The networks are still there, so nothing changed there. But more than anything, this law has put us in danger.” ”

  • “Posting nude pictures of service members without consent is now, for all intents and purposes, a crime in the Navy and Marine Corps — a response to the nude photo-sharing scandal that surfaced when a reporter outed a private Facebook group of Marines and sailors that was used at times to swap nudes.”

  • “Although nunsploitation peaked in the 1970s, it belongs to a much longer legacy of stories spawned from rumours about the mysterious life of nuns. As early as 1353, Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Decameron includes the tale of a handsome young man who pretends to be mute so he can work within the otherwise forbidden walls of a convent. The beautiful cloistered women grow increasingly bold, eventually using the protagonist to explore their carnal curiosity.”

  • “This was a very enlightened family, and this would have been a very loving gift from a husband to wife. You can see that because the level of detail is incredible, down to the folds of the skin. There’s a heart carved at the base of it, where her finger would have been, and a receptacle in which she could keep a lock of his hair.”

  • This post is GREAT. “The word is often used in a misogynist context and for many women, it’s irredeemable. But I learned to love the word one day in the late 90s with my husband and our friend. On a whim, we decided to say it at every opportunity that day, peppering the conversation with it, deliberately shouting it, relishing the percussive force of the word. … Later, when I’d entered the realms of porn, I came to properly appreciate “cunt” as a feminist, erotic descriptor.”
