This weekend’s #CelebGate nude photo leak — also known as “The Fappening” — has gotten even more unsavory. Amongst the many hundreds of alleged celeb nude photos — stolen from personal smartphones and hard drives by hackers and then uploaded to 4chan and Reddit — are a handful of photos of gymnast McKayla Maroney, who, her rep confirmed, was underage at the time they were taken. That, according to Reddit administrators, constitutes child pornography; a post on the Reddit community r/TheFappening, which is where the bulk of the leaked photos have been posted and shared, says that the group’s moderators have been informed of Maroney’s underage status and that they’re urging members to no longer share those images, lest the entire community get banned. Despite the controversy surrounding the illegally obtained photos and threats of legal action towards anyone distributing or publishing them, Reddit hasn’t been actively removing links to the stolen pics. And while moderators are urging community members to not to post the pics of Maroney or any other underage girls, the Daily Dot notes that users are publicly discussing where they should post those photos and other pornographic images of underage girls if Reddit is not an option. Let me repeat that: Reddit users in the r/TheFappening community are discussing where to hide their child porn. I’m going to go cry in a corner now. TTYL. [The Daily Dot]

I’m grateful — no, thrilled — to live in the golden era of vibrators. We have vibrators for clitoral stimulation, we have vibrators for your G-spot, we have vibrators you can fit inside your purse, we have vibrators you can use in the shower — just about anything you want a vibrator to do (except do your taxes), you can. It’s really one of the better parts of being a woman in 2014. That and indoor plumbing.
But just because a vibrator can do something doesn’t mean it should. That was my takeaway from Lelo’s new toy the Ida, the world’s first rotating and vibrating couple’s massager. Keep reading »
First dates inspire a low-level nausea and roiling dread for a variety of reasons. It could be horrible or it could be amazing. Meeting a stranger at a bar contains a world of untold possibility. Maybe they’ll be your soulmate, someone that makes your heartstrings zing and your loins quiver. Maybe they’ll be the worst person you’ve ever met in your life, and you’ll be better for knowing that someone out there that horrible exists, and just how to avoid them. Or, maybe it’ll be a perfectly average night, nothing to write home about, but just a two hour chunk of your life in which you sat across the table from a perfectly normal dude with a beard in a nice button-down, who you didn’t really have chemistry with. Whatever. You play the field for as long as you can until something that clicks comes along. Keep reading »
