Comment of the Week: Life Is Not Porn

We feel privileged and proud to have the most reasonable readers of any sex-related site out there: Well, let’s say for the sake of argument, that [a woman would] prefer [her partner] had a bigger penis.

Yesterday we discussed celebrities with porn names. Today we’re talking about celebrities in porn movies. Okay, not actual skin flicks. No, movies about skin flicks.

Comment of the Week: Don’t Hide Your Porn Habit

photo via flickr I second the importance of ethical porn consumption and highly recommend Abby Winters, which is woman-owned and operated.

3D Porn? Yeah, We’ll Get Back to You On That

Last year Em found herself — don’t ask why — agreeing to see Jackass 3D on opening night in L.A. (On a date night, no less.) In what was either a moment of pure genius commentary on sex and technology — or else just plain jackassery — the movie featured a 3D dildo bazooka fight, […]

Your Brain on Porn

photo via Flickr There has always been great debate between sex-positive free-speech porn advocates and anti-porn chicken-little moralists. We’ve always fallen somewhere in the middle: you can’t really legislate desire and fantasy, but at the same time all this porn, like too much fast food, can’t be good for you.
