Sex News: BBC backs Louis Theroux exploiting sex workers, New Zealanders are eating sexy pavement lichen, Dr. Jen Gunter has a new book, and more

In 2012 Louis Theroux took his cameras to Porn Valley and created one of the most misogynistic, warped, and utterly misleading video editorials I’d ever seen.

Looks like this time he’s gone after…

Sex News: How Hollywood fakes sex scenes, the rise of anxiousexuality, Google’s lesbian search problem, PayPal bans sex abuse prevention site

I think this is what’s been going on with me. “I asked Dr. Justin Lehmiller, a Research Fellow at the Kinsey Institute, why some people might be more likely to give themselves over to temporary celibacy during times of high anxiety … But anxiousexuality is different than a dry spell.

Sex News: NYT ignores misogyny in anti-porn feature, Munroe Bergdorf faces off with creeps, that Black Mirror ‘porn’ episode, unpacking the anti-sex business of tech

This is an interesting article, but even I am amazed how NYT managed to omit the key role misogyny and white-right campaigns against sex workers (like censoring ‘brigades’) has in this issue. “Amid the recent surge in hate crimes and shootings, some of the suspects in racist attacks and their supporters have invoked the societal…

Sex News: Reproductive rights fury, politician ads on Pornhub, Navy’s sky penis mystery, UK sex worker shakedowns
