This is James Deen — or at least that’s the name he goes by in the hundreds of porn films he’s made over the last several years. Deen is an unlikely looking porn star, with an unlikely story — and he’s perhaps heralding in a new aesthetic into the porn scene, long dominated by ripped, buff, overly-muscled guys. Deen is a porn star with nerd appeal.

Yes, I was nervous, but mostly I was excited. It was my first day as Mistress Darkness, a professional dominatrix. As a black graduate student in her 20s who had previously held down employment as a gym teacher and library assistant, I surprised myself when I answered the ad on Craigslist. I needed a flexible, part-time job to supplement my graduate assistantship stipend and the $65-$85/hr compensation sounded like easy money. I had always been intrigued by the sex industry, but the thought of being a sex worker clashed with my feminist ideals. I decided to make an exception for this dominatrix listing, which seemed different to me with its strict “no sex or nudity” policy. Keep reading »
It is difficult to imagine the French getting worked up about movie posters, seeing as their Weight Watchers commercials are soft core porn. But new posters for “Les Infideles,” a film coming out later this month starring Jean DuJardin, the Golden Globe-winning star of “The Artist,” are causing un grand ruckus. “Les Infideles” will be a series of vignettes about male infidelity and ad campaign is pretty sexy. In one poster, Jean DuJardin holds a woman’s legs up in the air; in another, his costar apepars to be getting a BJ from a lady attending to his crotch. Pretty tame stuff, if you ask me, but at least one French magazine has pulled the ads and a French ad regulation agency advised they be taken down. Everybody calm down, at least there weren’t any words spelled out in semen. [Huffington Post]
You know how sometimes people say women say one thing but mean another? Well, that’s totally true. For women and men, but I can only really speak for women because I am one. One subject that is often difficult to be totally and completely upfront about is sex. And I mean whether you are a woman having sex with a new lover or sex with your husband of 3,987 years (or maybe it just feels that long). We kind of have a one size fits all phrase for when we don’t want to have sex. Perhaps you’ve heard it before? “I’m just not in the mood.”
Fair enough. Sometimes we just aren’t in the mood and it’s for no other reason than the thought of getting naked gives us a headache. (Headache, of course, is another common excuse and often very real.) But there are many times we aren’t in the mood for a reason. Maybe it’s something the man did, or something we did. So I took this topic to a whole bunch of women and asked for their responses on the real reason they say no to sex. Some may surprise you. Read more…
Ladies, we may possible be able to say goodbye to the Pill, patch, ring and those heinous butt injections! Scientists are about to even out the birth control playing field (that has favored men for so long) by testing what could be “an effective, inexpensive and pain-free birth control option” for men.
The procedure: a few zaps to the balls with a high-frequency ultrasound and POOF! His swimming friends who threaten your womb with gestation disappear! Well, that’s what happened to male rats in a recently published study. After each rat had two ball-zapping treatments, researchers found that the rat’s sperm count was zero and its sperm-making germ cells were eradicated. (Yay! I think?) Keep reading »
A recent study done with orb-web spiders found that about eight percent of the time male spiders left their entire penis behind to do the job for them. The job, in this case, meaning impregnating the female spider. That’s how they do out there in nature. I know, you men out there are cringing at the thought of losing your member, but this “eunuch phenomenon” or extreme genital mutilation, is not without purpose. After the jump, five reasons why leaving their d**ks behind is worth it for these eight-legged dudes (and the other animal species that castrate themselves like ants, scorpions and beetles). Something to consider. Keep reading »
