Today in tastelessness: the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound will be sexily immortalized forever in “This Ain’t Bin Laden XXX,” a new parody porn debuting this summer by Hustler.

Will MTV’s “Skins” Run Afoul Of Child Porn Laws?

I smell a publicity stunt: MTV is worried future episodes of “Skins,” its new show about the hormone-laden escapades of a posse of Baltimore teens, will run afoul of child pornography laws because of too much sexxxy sex. “Skins,” which debuted on Monday, is an Americanized version of a popular show in Britain; however, the…

Frisky Q&A: Adult Film Star Ryan Keely

For all the sex positive writing that I do, I’d never actually talked with someone who worked in the adult entertainment industry for a living. Like a lot of people, I just assumed they all were failed actresses and cokeheads.

That was unfair of me.

Over the summer, I met up with…

The Anti-Porn Men Project: Dudes Take A Stand Against Violent Porn

If aliens landed and took stock of pop culture from the past decade, they might conclude that men on Earth are boobie-crazed sex beasts enslaved by their own desires, and that pornography is as essential to a man’s life as air. Two male activists are seriously troubled by the ubiquity of porn in Western men’…

What Is “Bubbling” And What Does It Have To Do With Porn?

What do you do if you’re horny but your strict religious faith forbids both premarital sex and looking at porn? You use Photoshop. According to BuzzFeed, one Mormon man has found a loophole where he takes photos of women in bikinis and blocks the sexy parts of a woman’s body, which he calls “bubbling.” After…

Reach Out & Touch (A Porn Star) In 3-D

The future of pornography is here, and it’s more graphic than ever before. Blame (or thank, depending on how you feel about the genre), the success of Hollywood mega hits like “Avatar” and “Alice In Wonderland” for what some predict will take porn to the next level, literally. French director Tom Sridix has been working…

Sex With Susannah: “My Boyfriend Watches A Lot Of Porn”

I’m 26 and my boyfriend is 29, and we recently moved in together after dating for about two years. Things are going great except for one thing: my boyfriend watches a lot of porn … at least, it seems like a lot to me. Before we lived together, I knew he looked at porn periodically,…

Girl Talk: Sometimes, Pornography Can Feel Like Cheating

The moment that my boyfriend got up to use the restroom, my friend Liz* turned to me and said gravely and in hushed tones, “All right, I need to make this quick before he gets back from the bathroom.”

Boys Exposed To Porn Are More Likely To Sexually Harass Girls

Porn: whether you love it, hate it, or feel indifferent, you can’t deny it influences people just like any other form of media. Generally, “Think of the children!” hand-wringing is something I ignore because I think it can get really overblown. But a recent report on how exposure to porn affects young boys is a…

Porn Makes You Bad In Bed! (Or Does It?)

In “How Not to Make Love Like a Porn Star,” Salon’s Mary Elizabeth Williams sort of suggests that watching too much porn makes you bad in bed.

Perhaps North Dakota woman Nicole Altendorf was trying to supplement the sex education unit at the local elementary school when she broadcast a porno out the window of her home for all the kiddies to see.
