Bedtime Stories

There is no shortage of pornographic material available to the average adult. Anyone with a computer has access to a plethora of naughty and not so nice images. Whether we’ve wanted to or not, most of us — whether through an error in a Google Search or the “witty” antics of a friend — have seen the skin on a few men, or women, or (God forbid) animals contorted into positions that would make the Pilobolus Dance Troupe jealous. However, not everyone wants to look. The good news is: you don’t have to watch strangers’ sexual exploits for a stimulating time; you can read about them. Welcome to the world of erotic novels, a girl’s right-hand man (or woman) in the bedroom. Keep reading »

A Woman No Longer Runs Playboy

Hugh Hefner’s daughter Christie, who has sat at the helm of the $300 million Playboy Enterprises empire for the last two decades, stepped down from her post yesterday. The self-described feminist has faced a myriad of challenges on the job in recent years, including falling subscription rates for the company’s flagship magazine, in part due to the increasingly widespread availability of adult content on the internet. Most recently, there was talk of selling her father’s Playboy Mansion residence to raise cash for the corporation’s nose-diving portfolio. Three years ago, Christie was named one of the world’s most powerful businesswomen. Now, inspired by the Obama campaign, she’s making noises that suggest a shift into politics. So, do you think the former head of what some deem to be a pornographic magazine could get elected to a public office? [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Women Execs On The Rise In The Adult Movie Industry

MSNBC’s resident sexpert, Brian Alexander, who writes the site’s “Sexploration” column, sits down for a chat with the lady execs of the adult movie industry and discovers that when it comes to the business of porn, men and women see things differently. “‘There is still this perception that [the porn industry] is all run by men, and not very nice men,’” says Joy King, an adult movie studio exec at Wicked Pictures, one of the industry’s biggest production companies. Other women executives working in the sex trade include Digital Playground’s Samantha Lewis, California Exotic Novelties’ Susan Colvin, and Femme’s Candida Royalle. “Surprisingly,” Alexander reports, “many women who work in the business say they don’t like porn.” So who’s to blame for porn’s low quality? These women say it’s men, of course! “[W]hile more women are calling the shots, they have to respond to a market of primarily male consumers, many of whom find plots simply a waste of time.” Hence, all that fast-forwarding. The women of XXX don’t get much support from anti-porn feminists either, who posit the sex industry exploits women. Adult star Nina Hartley has been called “brainwashed.” What do you think? Is porn just one more business — or the business of exploiting women? Keep reading »

Technology Spawns A New Kind Of Peeping Tom

Salon’s Tracy Clark-Flory has a really interesting piece up this week: “Porn in a Flash.” It’s about “upskirting,” the unsuspecting women who star in it, and how there’s not always a lot the law can do to stop it. What’s upskirting? Basically, it’s an “up the skirt” photo or video, taken by a digital Peeping Tom, who shoots surreptitiously. Cellphones enabled the genre, and websites are dedicated to upskirt shots. For the women, it’s like starring in a soft-core shoot — without their knowledge. In the past, women turned to state “Peeping Tom laws,” but, in a unique twist, because the act takes place in public, women don’t have a “right to a reasonable expectation of privacy,” spawning “a frontier of rogue pornographers from all over the world.” Clark-Flory writes: “It’s such a craze in Japan that cellphone cameras now come with a shutter sound that alerts bystanders that a photo is being taken; in that country, even the iPhone 3G features an extra-loud anti-upskirt alarm.” While Britney helped popularized the upskirt phenomenon when she flashed her, um, Britney for the paps, for other women, upskirting is digital overexposure.
