I haven’t exactly kept it a secret around here the way that I’m sexually wired. For the most part, though, the only person whose opinion matters on the subject is my sexual partner. (And any roommates who have to listen to occasional smacking.) Yet, every so often, BDSM — that’s bondage, dominance, sadomasochism — pops up in mainstream popular culture and us kinksters and spankos get to hear the mainstream’s opinion on our lives.

“Secretary,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader, a flick about a secretary who enters into a dominance/submission relationship with her boss, came out while I was in college. Although the flick was understandably controversial, it explained to a lot of people, “Hey, we’re just regular folks like you. Except, you know, not so regular!”

More recently, it’s the BDSM erotic novel 50 Shades Of Grey that has people talking. It seems everyone has an opinion on the subject — including those who are completely misguided about who kinksters are and what we do. Take, for instance, feminist blogger Morgane Richardson and a piece she wrote calling 50 Shades “a glimpse into domestic violence.”

We all have dodgy photos of our friends on our phones in embarrassing or damn near blackmail-worthy positions. But a survey of 1,500 people has shown that one-fourth of women say they’ve posted unflattering pic of their friends on Facebook on purpose. Yup, on purpose. The most common reason a “friend” posted a picture of her gal pal doing bong hits in the church parking lot is exactly what you think it would be: sweet, sweet revenge. So party carefully when there’s cameras around, especially if you’ve recently committed an act of treachery. Sigh. The older I get, the more aware I am the word “friend” is greatly overused.  [The Daily]

Casting news can get so tedious, especially when you couldn’t give a crap about the latest “Breaking Hunger Potter Twilight Games” franchise.

Creator Ryan Murphy dished to The Hollywood Reporter that season two will be “fun, sexy and baroque” and set on an East Coast mental institution for the criminally insane. So who can we expect to see onscreen? Keep reading »

  • In response to a Change.org petition, Seventeen magazine has said it will no longer alter the body size or face shape of the models posing in its magazine. The petition was created by Julia Bluhm of Waterville, Maine, and garnered over 84,000 signatures which were hand-delivered to the executive editor of Seventeen. [Change.org/Seventeen]
  • North Carolina’s Republican-controlled state legislature has overrode a veto by Governor Bev Perdue, effectively defunding the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics. State funding is not used for abortion services, so the defunding will only be hurting those who go to Planned Parenthood clinics for other services, like Pap smears and cancer screenings.  [Huffington Post]
