Sex News: The sex-negative resistance, blockchain bluster, porn deaths, fake orgasm stats, excitement for Altered Carbon

  • “The right consumes our products and services, then attacks us publicly — Trump himself signed an anti-porn pledge during the campaign … The left wields sex workers as weapons to discredit the right for their supposed hypocrisy, disregarding our humanity by reducing us to rhetorical arguments … Sexual assault is easily boiled down to “he said, she said”; sex with a porn star is mostly meant to be mocked. It doesn’t matter what else might be taken from the story, like Trump’s susceptability to blackmail or the similarity of Daniels’ account to the women who’ve accused him of sexual assault.”

  • Warning for survivors of sexual abuse. “Olympic gold medalist gymnast Aly Raisman delivered a 13-minute victim impact statement today in front of Ingham County Circuit Judge Judge Rosemarie Aquilina and Larry Nassar himself, in which she excoriated not just Nassar for his sexual abuses against herself and nearly 150 other athletes, but also USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee for what she sees as a systematic enabling of his crimes and an inadequate response to the devastating scandal on their doorstep.”

  • “Adult actress Olivia Lua was found dead at a California rehab facility, making her the fifth porn star to pass away within the last three months. … The 23-year-old porn actress, also known as Olivia Voltaire, … hadn’t been doing much work since early October due to “some personal challenges that had landed her in residential rehab.””

  • “Barre’s creator, Lotte Berk, a free-love revolutionary who began teaching the regimen in 1959, specifically wanted to advance what she called “the state of sex” by encouraging women to pursue sex for their own pleasure. And in the post–sexual revolution 1970s, women’s magazines pitched the workout as a way for women to do just that — or as Cosmopolitan put it, to “build sexual confidence and competence.” What today has become a mass commercial fitness trend — a straitlaced subculture in which butts are called “seats” — was once a radical, decidedly erotic practice.”

  • Warning for graphic descriptions. “I’m standing in the operating room of a plastic surgery center across from the Flynt Publishing Building in Beverly Hills, wincing beneath my protective mask. The lower half of a middle-aged man is splayed upon the table before me, his unimposing three-inch flaccid penis framed in crotchless surgical scrubs like a gag gift at a bachelorette party.”

  • “… When materials for a financial campaign quietly removed our dedication to “sex positivity” so as not to scare off potential donors. When my “Be nice to sex workers” shirt was laughed at. When the very concept of queer porn having historical value was scoffed at as we absorbed a local LGBTQ+ library. Every moment when I wondered if I would lose my job if this blog was discovered.”

  • “When it comes down to the numbers, at least based on one study from Dr. Ed, an online medical service, there’s not that huge of a difference between the percentages of gay women and straight women who reportedly fake it. In the survey of 2000 people, 59% of gay women said that they have faked an orgasm, as compared to 68% of straight women.”

  • “The payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to buy silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump may have been an illegal campaign contribution to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, according to a complaint filed Monday by a government watchdog group. … Because the payment reportedly was made about a month before voters headed to the polls, it could be seen as a campaign “expenditure” that affected the election’s outcome in Trump’s favor, according to the complaint.”

  • “Dresses ruffle and hands clamor beneath hemlines. Bridget winds up in her employer’s lap. She thumbs down Lizzie’s lower lip so precisely that she reveals no teeth but a tongue, silver and ready to pounce. Because the women remain fully dressed throughout the scene, the camerawork is lax and indulgent, pulling back and revealing the totality of bodies and setting … The love scene, when contrasted with the ensuing murder sequence, becomes reminiscent of a Highsmith novel that weighs sex and murder in even palms. (The women conduct their slayings in the nude.)”
