Guy Talk: What’s The Difference Between Privacy And Secrecy?

Last week’s discussion about guys, porn, and honesty raised a number of interesting questions. How much truth do we owe our partners about what we do when they’re not around – and how much should we share about what runs through our heads? Almost everyone agrees that outright lies are bad. But are there some questions that invite lies? Are there some questions we shouldn’t even ask? Keep reading »

Men Watch Porn
So what? Read More »

In a piece for The Good Men Project, Hugo Schwyzer writes about the many men he’s talked with who lie to their girlfriends/wives about the amount of porn they watch. One man told him that he downplays how much X-rated material he consumes because “women go ballistic when you tell them the truth.” Really? Do women actually go ballistic? Are dudes really lying about how much porn they watch? We decided to ask a few of the guys on our IM — who are ALWAYS honest with us — about this very subject. Find out what they had to say after the jump! And please, male Frisky readers, tell us whether you have lied about how much porn you watch and why. And ladies, would you actually go “ballistic” about your dude’s porn usage? Keep reading »

Is Porn A Relationship Dealbreaker?

My mother and many of her second-wave feminist peers view pornography as an institutional ill that is degrading to women and damaging to developing sexuality. She believes that the camera-ready angles, waxed and plastic body parts and pervasive depiction of extreme acts as “normal” distort human sexuality and give young porn-viewers a whole bunch of false and dangerous expectations.

My mom is a smart lady, and she’s not wrong. While I agree that some porn (okay, most of it) fits the bill she describes as damaging, I don’t find the filming and viewing of sex acts as objectively offensive. In other words, I think that porn is not inherently problematic, but its content often includes problematic ideas and attitudes. I also believe when viewed as entertainment, porn can be a positive element in the repertoire of adult sexuality, Keep reading »

Evening Quickies: Casey Anthony Porn Offer Withdrawn & Why Emma Watson Was Snapped In Tears

  • Vivid Entertainment has withdrawn its offer to Casey Anthony to star in a porn. In a statement, the CEO said:
    “It has become obvious to us that Vivid fans, and people in general, want nothing to do with her and that includes a XXX movie. We want to make movies that people want to watch and we now believe that we underestimated the emotional response that people are having to the verdict. A movie starring Casey Anthony is not what people want to see.”

    Sigh. If only the American public felt the same way about Octomom. [ONTD]

  • Bristol Palin visited “The View” this morning. She stayed tight-lipped about if/when Sarah Palin will formally announce a candidacy for president, but told us all about losing her virginity again! Also, her son Tripp is blonde-haired, blue-eyed and adorable. [ABC News, Gawker]
  • People will have strong feelings about the Care Bears getting CGI-animated, I predict. Fight amongst yourselves. [ONTD]
  • Bjork has released the first-ever iPad album where each song will be interactive on the $500 toy. [Neatorama]

A Casey Anthony Porn? NO!

Less than 24 hours after being acquitted of murder, Casey Anthony already has a job offer. While the rest of the world was outraged by the verdict, Vivid Entertainment’s CEO, Steve Hirsch, saw it as an opportunity. According to TMZ, Hirsch has reached out to Anthony about starring in a porno. “Whether you agree with the verdict or not, Casey will want to move forward with her life and has a right to make a living. It’s not going to be easy for her and we believe we can help her make the transition into a new life,” he said. “We’ve all seen the pictures of her partying and having a good time with friends where she definitely looks hot.”

Ugh. I can’t even start to enumerate the levels of wrong here. Keep reading »

Inmate Says No Porn In Jail Is Cruel And Unusual Punishment

How do you make a criminal really suffer? A 21-year-old jailbird in Michigan has filed a lawsuit against the governor for violating his civil rights in the most inhumane way possible: no porn. Kyle Richards is locked up at Macomb County Jail, where all pornography is in violation of the rules. What cruel and unusual punishment! Now he is suing over “poor standard of living” and “sexual and sensory deprivation,” according to his court filing. “Such living conditions have been used as a method of ‘psychological warfare’ against prisoners, in order to both destroy the morale of inmates and break the spirit of individuals.” Richards also wants personal televisions, video game consoles, and radios, which suggests to me that someone needs to explain to him the definition of “punishment.” Lucky for him, Playboy and Penthouse magazines are allowed in Michigan prisons, said a corrections spokesman. Considering he plead guilty to a burglary in January and should be sentenced in August, this guy should just be a little more patient. Good luck with getting that Xbox console, though.
