Representation In Porn, Or A Lack Thereof, And Why It Matters

Have you ever wondered what racial representation looks like in porn versus the United States population? Well, I have.

I get tired of conventional porn sometimes, and I want to see porn with women especially, but people in general, who aren’t going “ooohnnnn ooohhhhhnnn ohhhhhnnn” like seals throughout the movie, or who aren’t skinny, or who aren’t young, or who aren’t white, or who aren’t conventional-looking, or who are engaging in sex acts that they really, really, really love of their own accord rather than being just sort of down to do because it’s their job. That’s why I love Beautiful Agony (just assume that none of the links in this post are safe for work) — it’s all orgasms, it’s all very understated, it’s a pure celebration of pleasure, and lots of different kinds of people are represented. It’s also why I love the Art-Porn Tumblr: there’s at least some diversity, there’s a lot of kink — real kink — and many of the photographers and directors portray sex in a way that doesn’t feel so … I don’t know. Gratuitous. There’s nothing wrong with gratuitous, conventional porn, of course, I just get tired of it. It’s made for a male audience, and I’m not male. I want to see something different.

Funny Or Die Says Goodbye To Season 1 Of “Serial” With This Hilarious Spoof

Funny Or Die Says Goodbye To Season 1 Of "Serial" With This Hilarious Spoof
Yes, There Are Mail Chimp Jokes

Tomorrow, the final episode of “Serial” will post online and fans of the podcast are on pins and needles waiting to see how the story will end. Well, spoiler alert, but I’m pretty sure Adnan Syed will still be in jail and we’ll all still be pretty unsure as to whether he killed Hae Min Lee. (I am inclined to believe Adnan is innocent, but I would also be utterly unsurprised if he did do it. SO FRUSTRATING.) That’s not to say the episode won’t be interesting or even revelatory — I’m sure host Sarah Koenig has been working round the clock to deliver an episode to remember, driving herself crazy with stress. Kinda like this on point Funny or Die spoof starring Michaela Watkins, who does a  great Sarah Koenig, but an even better impression of Cristina Gutierrez’s terribly grating voice. [Funny Or Die]

Pat Robertson Thinks Gay People Will Go Extinct Because They Can’t Reproduce

Full Of Jesus Or Gas?

On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson received a phone call from a viewer asking him to weigh in on her church’s policy of forbidding members from dating or marrying anybody, which has made said members very frustrated because they are all getting older and would prefer not to die alone.

Is she a Shaker? Is it some kind of cult? We don’t know! And the reason we do not know is because instead of making sure that this woman is not in some bizarre cult, Pat Robertson decided to relate this to the gays, and how they and this church will go extinct from not reproducing. As one does, when one is Pat Robertson. Keep reading »
