Buck Angel's PSA

Article: Buck Angel's PSA

Buck Angel is not your typical porn star. And the PSA above is most certainly not your typical PSA. See, Buck is female to male transgendered. Yes, that man, that big, muscular, tattooed man above, has women’s sexual organs. And regardless of what your exterior looks like, you still need to take care of, as…

"Off the Set: Porn Stars and Their Partners"

Article: "Off the Set: Porn Stars and Their Partners"

Photography duo Paulie & Pauline are coming out with a new book in April called “Off the Set” which features porn stars and their partners in intimate, non-porn moments. Paired with the images of the ten couples are essays by the photographers and some of their subjects, actual love letters, and stories that humanize people often thought of as sex machines. We asked Paulie and Pauline to give us some background on a few of the images from the book (which you can pre-order from Amazon):

“This cover photo is of Digital Playground contract star Jesse Jane and her husband Rich. Her given name is Cindy, which is just perfect because she reminds us of sweet little Cindy Loo Hoo from How The Grinch Stole Christmas! She’s a tiny slip of a thing, especially when she’s standing next to her husband, who could easily be mistaken for a Na’vi from Pandora if you painted him blue. We photographed them one hot summer morning at their home outside Oklahoma City earlier this year.

When you’re gay you cherish sex equally as pop. And we idolize our porn stars as much as our pop stars. Madonna shows as much skin as any adult entertainer.  Why wouldn’t we? We also don’t care about the taboos attached to porn. But, then again, we’ve never shared a name with a porn star. Michael…

Australia bans small breasts, ejaculation from adult entertainment.

Article: Australia bans small breasts, ejaculation from adult entertainment.

Australia: a land where prostitution is (mostly) legal, cursing on TV is par for the course…and a byzantine structure of censorship renders most XXX material illegal to own, sell, or both. Newly added to the list of banned acts: small breasts and female ejaculation.

Why small breasts? Well, the ban is specifically focused on women who’s breasts give them the appearance of being underage (unlike America, Australia frowns on “barely legal” porn, as well as anything meant to make adult actresses look like they’re youthful or underage). Of course, declaring that one very common body type is unwelcome in erotic material does have more than a few unpleasant implications, as Jezebel outlines.

BUTT TV

I have written here about my love of the Ace Hotel. It is casual yet polished. It can be a wild time, but also peaceful. And it is the hotel with the hottest visitors. Don’t trust me? Check out the Palm Springs pool or the NYC lobby for proof. It is also the gayest hotel…

AVN releases awards nominations.

Article: AVN releases awards nominations.

Come this January, a who’s who of adult entertainment talent will descend upon Las Vegas, first for the Adult Entertainment Expo–the largest US adult industry trade show–and then for the AVN Awards, the awards show commonly referred to as the Oscars of porn.

Beautiful Agony, the o-face video website, turns 5!

Article: Beautiful Agony, the o-face video website, turns 5!

BeautifulAgony.com launched in 2004 as a response to what the founders saw as a vacuum of real erotica on the Internet. It features videos of contributors’ o-faces, i.e. orgasms from the neck up. Hundreds and hundreds of videos later — they update each weekday — the site is still going strong. It’s heavy-breathing sexy without being obscene in the slightest — quite an accomplishment. You have to pay to join ($14.95 a month) but there are plenty of free samples in case your sex life is on a recession-induced budget. We chatted with c0-founder Lauren Olney about the site:

Do you post every video you receive?
Unfortunately not all the videos we receive make the cut. Mostly it’s technical problems that prevent us from using a contribution: poor lighting, framing, or flashing a little too much flesh. Anything that’s obviously faked or exaggerated will also get politely declined we’re looking for authenticity, genuine emotion — and believe me, after five years, we know how to spot a fake! We also require a Confessions interview with each Beautiful Agony submission, so if a contributor is not willing to speak openly and honestly about themselves and/or their experiences on camera, then we can’t really use their “o-face” video, no matter how sensational it might be.

Lorelei Lee: From DP to NYU (and back again)

Article: Lorelei Lee: From DP to NYU (and back again)

Though doing porn to “pay for college” is an oft cited cliche, there are, in fact, many girls in the adult industry who are working their way through school–and taking their classes seriously, too. Lorelei Lee is one of those girls: the ten year veteran of the adult biz recently moved to New York City…

photo by dougwoods Wondering what’s the 2009 equivalent of “the dog ate my homework”? It’s “the cat downloaded my child porn.” Seriously. In the you’ve-got-to-be-f&#*ing-kidding-us department: South Korea paints parking spaces pink to designate them for women in heels. Kathy Griffin continues to endear herself to us by bringing Levi Johnston as her date for…

"Not Monday Night Football XXX": A porn parody too far?

Article: "Not Monday Night Football XXX": A porn parody too far?

For the past few years, porn parodies of popular sitcoms have been increasingly big business–and for good reason, too. With rampant piracy decreasing the adult industry’s market share, porn companies are eager to latch on to anything that sells: and, not surprisingly, the age old formula of taking a popular TV show and getting the…

Ugly porno

Article: Ugly porno

Michael Lucas, the flamboyant Russian-American porn mogul, will soon be heading mainstream with a walk-on role on ABC’s hit Ugly Betty. Not cast in the traditional sense, and no, I do not mean on the director’s couch either, Lucas simply bought his way onto the show.
