Chinese Theme Park Promotes Pirates Of The Carribean Ride With Porn Movie Poster

In Xiamen, China, an amusement park used a porn movie poster to promote its family-friendly Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Rather than using movie posters related to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” starring Johnny Depp, someone used a poster for “Pirates,” an X-rated movie starring Jesse Jane and Evan Stone, instead. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was nominated for five Academy Awards. “Pirates” won an AVN Award for Best All-Girl Sex Scene. How a porn movie poster came to hang alongside real “Pirates of the Caribbean” promotional materials may forever remain a mystery, but it probably didn’t hurt that the “Pirates” movie poster chosen featured the comely, blond, and busty Jane.

The Johnny Cupcakes Cannon: Get A Face Full Of Wasted Treats


I heard my dad’s voice while watching this video from the Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour. You see, when I wouldn’t eat as a child, my dad would say there were starving children in Africa who would be happy for pumpernickel bread and okra. I’d roll my eyes and think: “Whether I eat or don’t, the African kids still wouldn’t get my food.” I’ve matured since then and try not to waste food or get entertainment from people wasting food. (Good thing “Double Dare” isn’t my favorite show anymore.) But even I laughed hysterically at the folks in this video who were shot in the face with cupcakes fired from a 120 psi cannon. After all, Johnny Cupcakes is a clothing company known for its cupcake and crossbones logo. How can you not laugh? [Gizmodo via Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Condom Water Balloons Exploding In Reverse Slow Motion

I guess someone wandered around Coachella throwing water-filled condoms in people’s faces? It was hot, so I suppose they liked it. Since this is 2010, someone was there to videotape the results, and because this is the internet, someone did a second version in which the condom water bombs are seen exploding in reverse slow motion. The effect is completely strange. Is this CGI? Is this real life? Is this actually happening? I feel like this is some sort of subliminal advertising campaign for Terminator-brand condoms. You never know. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

American Able Photo Series Spoofs Hypersexual American Apparel Ads Using A Disabled Model

Photographer Holly Norris says on her website, “Rarely, if ever, are women with disabilities portrayed in anything other than an asexual manner, for ‘disabled’ bodies are largely perceived as ‘undesirable.’” To combat that perception, Norris has chosen to spoof the highly identifiable American Apparel ads, which the company claims feature “real women,” though only real women who fit a very specific look — young, thin, and uber-sexual. In her series “American Able,” Norris has photographed Jes, a disabled woman, in American Apparel clothes and in the style of AA ads, in order to “reveal the ways in which women with disabilities are invisibilized in advertising and mass media.” Norris’ photographs are beautiful and I love the positive and forward-thinking mission of the work, which doesn’t just criticize mass market thinking but also presents an alternative. As for Jes? Her photographs have more personality than all the AA ads I’ve ever seen put together. Take that, Dov Charney.

Check out a few more photos after the jump and then check out the entire series on Norris’ website. [Holly Norris] Keep reading »

Couples Create Art By Having Sex On A Blank Canvas

Years ago, I interviewed Tillamook Cheddar, a dog who creates art. I was reminded of Tillie when I saw the work of Alexander Esguerra. In these pieces, a couple covered in paint lies down on a blank canvas and has sex. The subjects are straight and gay, Caucasian and Chinese-American, married and adulterous — all of which makes you wonder what kind of picture a certain type of couple creates while making love. The one on the left looks like an orgy. The one on the right looks like they were going at it standing up. If you want to get an eyeful in person, Esguerra’s “It’s Just Sex” show opens May 22 at 676 Broadway in Manhattan. Keep reading »

Erotica Book Sales Are Booming

While celebrity memoirs are among today’s best-sellers, another literary genre is giving book sales a boost: erotica. MSNBC reports titles like Thong on Fire, Candy Licker, and G-Spot are the new Lady Chatterley’s Lover. “Much of the new erotica is simply porn moved to the printed page,” says Brian Alexander, “only smarter and largely aimed at women.” In other words, erotica is porn for women — with a lot less pictures. Erotica publishers report the market has fairly “exploded,” and our own Rachel Kramer Bussel hosts a popular erotica reading series, In the Flesh, at Manhattan’s Happy Ending Lounge. Within erotica, there are multiple sub-genres, each one tailored to whatever a specific demographic is looking for: vampire erotica, “Noire” (with an African-America focus), and old-school romance. What’s the latest growing demographic among erotica readers? As it turns out, men. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Let The Serenading Unicorn Serenade You

Yes, it’s Friday. You’re going out with the girlfriends, but perhaps you have yet to meet that special someone. You work for the weekend, and then … there’s no guy to throw yourself at the bar. Don’t you hate it when that happens? I know I do. If you’re feeling a little datelessly down, have no fear. Because the Serenading Unicorn is here to serenade you. At the Serenading Unicorn website, this soft, fluffy unicorn will sing you dreamy tunes by Boyz II Men, Michael Bolton, and Culture Club. This unicorn’s love is for real. Not like that guy from last weekend, who never called you back, dammit. I think the Serenading Unicorn’s heart-stopping, beach-side, and oddly phallic rendition of “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” is my favorite. What’s yours?
