James Teague is gone, but he is certainly not forgotten. The 19-year-old was drinking heavily on a skiing trip in New Zealand when he tragically fell from his hotel balcony, hit his head on the parking lot pavement below and died. Like many sad stories of young death, 9news in Australia honored the teen by displaying a photo of him … throwing the Shocker … alongside three girls. Okay, maybe that doesn’t happen too often.
It can only be assumed that the news station intern in charge of compiling photos for James’ memorial segment was unaware of the sexual gesture, which means “two in the pink, one in the stink” (or for those of you who really need things spelled out, two fingers in the vagina and one in the butt). Gone are the days of memorializing those who’ve passed by sharing family photos and smiling graduation pictures. [Gawker]
A few months ago, Amelia and I were talking about rape threats against women who write online. It seems like it happens to feminist writers Zerlina Maxwell, Amanda Hess and Jessica Valenti every day. Amelia asked if any readers have threatened to rape or otherwise harm me. The honest truth is that it only happened once — on Twitter a few years ago. The man had zero followers and had only tweeted a handful of times, all of which were incendiary remarks or threats against other liberals. I didn’t suspect he posed a serious threat to my safety, so I just blocked him. Do I even have to say I’m grateful that this was the one and only time some stranger threatened me?
That one incident isn’t the complete picture, though. A better question to ask in order to illustrate the at-times unsavory experience of being a feminist writer online would be about the kinds of inquiries I get on social media or in my inbox. Nearly every single day, a man emails asking me personal information about my sexuality, for an invitation to a sex party, or straight-up propositions me for sex. Keep reading »
I have big boobs. Whereas some women would kill to have the knockers I have, I’ve never been a huge fan of them. I mean, yes, it’s a pretty impressive rack, but at the price of back pain and the inability to get a dress to fit me properly, I’d prefer them to be smaller. I think I’d be happy with a nice B-cup, which is a small cry from the Double-D situation I have at the moment.
Not too surprisingly, my boobs have always been a favorite physical asset of the men I’ve dated. They’ve loved my brain, I think, and I’ve always been complimented on my sick sense of humor and my eyes, but when it came to my boobs, well, they’ve always won major points with the guys in my life, both straight and gay. In addition to being an ideal place for the men I’ve been intimate with to put their hands or rest their head, my boobs have provided other, more exciting experiences. What could be more exciting than a breast for a pillow, you ask? Keep reading »
One time, when I was 17, I broke my boyfriend’s penis.
We had been cooped up for days in his mother’s basement which had a kitchenette and a bathroom and a TV, so we saw no reason to leave. This was summer in East LA, so the sounds that floated in our window were of chickens and barking dogs and car alarms. One time, there was a foot chase that we watched cautiously out his bedroom window, the tottering, overweight policeman tripping down the ravine with his flashlight, the person he was chasing already lost in the dark.

One of the first questions people usually ask upon meeting me is what I do for a living. When I respond casually that I’m a production assistant on queer porn, then the questions really get going. What does a porn PA do, exactly?
I’ll tell you one thing: much to my regret, I am not a fluffer. I know, I know, it’s a great tragedy for me, too.
I dreamed of working on a porn set from when I was a teen, thumbing through copies of Club Magazine and trolling various AOL cybersex forums. I dreamed of being on NoFauxxx or SuicideGirls, and got into erotic modeling intending to take it further. But life got in the way of my exhibitionist dreams, and I didn’t revisit my love for porn until I founded the Ladies High Tea and Pornography Society, a discussion, Sunday tea, and porn appreciation gathering I threw for a few years in London. When, at 27, I started performing in adult films, I never imagined I would one day be on the other side of the camera. Keep reading »
Public Service Announcement time: always remove your sex toy from your pussy. A woman in Scotland complaining of weight loss and incontinence had an icky surprise waiting for her at the doctor’s office: a sex toy abandoned in her vagina. As reported by The Journal Of Sexual Medicine, the sex toy (which was described as five-inches large, but otherwise not specified) poked into her bladder and caused a fistula and urinary blockages. Unpleasant! The lady admitted using the sex toy 10 years ago while drinking and couldn’t remember whether she removed it — obviously not. Perhaps after a night of boozing and sexing, it’s a good idea to do a roll call of your sex toys the next day. [Daily Mail UK via Gawker] [Images via Shutterstock and Daily Mail UK]
Amanda is a model. But not just any model — she’s an Amazon model.
What does that mean? Well, at 6’3 with a 44DD bust and 63-inch hips, she was deemed too big to work as a mainstream model. But she didn’t let that deter her modeling dreams: she became an Amazon model. Read more on Your Tango…
If sand fleas, nasty infections, and sunburn weren’t motive enough, getting arrested might be another reason to think twice about sex on the beach. A couple on Bradenton Beach in Florida seemed to think it was totally fine to get it on in full view of dozens of people, including kids, in the middle of the day. Reportedly, people watched, dumbstruck, while Jose “Benny” Caballero and Elissa Alvarez had sex for about 25 minutes. One heroic grandma on the scene got fed up and pulled out her phone to take a video of the couple. According to the epically giggle-worthy news report by Fox 13 Tampa Bay, the unidentified grandmother ”is outraged since her grandchildren saw this, and of course, they started asking questions.” Oh, I’m sure they had plenty of questions. After their first go at it, the couple laid down like nothing had happened and slept for hours. According to the grandma, ”We thought they were dead, but when they woke up, they cuddled for a while, then started into the same thing they did before.” A parent who was also on the beach called the police, who arrived to arrest the two. Caballero and Alvarez were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and later released on a bond. [Gawker]
”It was devastating because that was someone I was with for a few years. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fully trust any man again after that. It was just the most hurtful and awful thing that anyone could do to a little girl. I was very young, it wasn’t my fault.”
It’s not often — okay, it’s never — that Paris Hilton inspires sympathy. But in a certain light, you could also look at her as the world’s most famous revenge porn victim. She spoke to the UK’s Telegraph about her DJing career (roll eyes) and addressed how she was affected by that 2004 sex tape. “1 Night In Paris” was apparently laked by her ex-boyfriend/co-star Rick Salomon around the time her reality show “The Simple Life” came out. Some believed that Paris released it herself for publicity. But I believe her that she’s actually vain enough not to release a sex tape in night vision and that this was actually a humiliating experience for her.
It is creepy that Paris refers to herself as “a little girl,” though. She was 23 when that sex tape came out. [Telegraph UK]
