Google Glass Porn is Coming

3

It’s common knowledge that if you give people a new technology, they’ll immediately start using it for porn. So no one should be surprised that Google Glass porn is already in production. Google’s “augmented reality” glasses seem ideal for giving viewers a “you are there” POV experience. A company called Mikandi is already experimenting with the new medium. Mikandi co-founder Jennifer McEwen told Violet Blue:

Being hands-free and hassle-free is a simple but big difference Glass has over other similar devices. It’s so easy and familiar to wear, that from a shooter’s perspective it feels like you’re recording with your own eyes. Because it feels so natural, you can forget about the technology and just be in the moment. 

On top of that, with Glass you can share and interact with fans and followers, allowing them intimate access to your experiences. It’s like being John Malkovich where you’re viewing the world through someone else’s eyes.

But is the world ready for Being James Deen? Blue wonders if Google will embrace the porn possibilities of their new toy or follow Apple’s example and try to keep their cool new toy squeaky clean.

The Fine Art of Sexting

Karen Finley wants your dick pics. Well, not exactly. But for a recent show at New York’s New Museum, the legendary performance artist turned sexts into art.

For the exhibition, Finley invited patrons to commission an original artwork by coming in for a ten-minute “sitting” in which they were given a number and invited to sext her. From these sexts, Finley made paintings, which are now on display at the museum. At the end of the exhibit, those lucky patrons of the arts will get to take home their sext portraits for $200-$500.

We think this a clever idea and a great deal for the lucky few who got to “sit” for Finley. It also gives us a chance to think about how technology (especially smartphones) has sped up the act of getting off with a partner. With services like Snapchat making the sext an ephemeral object, Finley’s paintings invite us to take a longer look at how we frame our bodies in the heat of the moment.

Peer Educators Teach Sex Ed In Cleveland

0

We’ve talked before on this blog about the need for an alternative to the abstinence-only sex education model, an approach that places importance on consent, communication and practical information. In a welcome move last week, Illinois lawmakers voted to make discussion of birth control mandatory in its sex education classes. Today, we learned about an unusual program run by Case Western University in Cleveland, where teens are trained to teach other about sex and responsibility.

During an after-school program at St. Martin de Porres Family Center on Cleveland’s East Side earlier this year, a freshman voiced his confusion during a talk about safe sex:

“You mean, if she’s drunk or high and says, ‘Yes,’ that’s still rape?” 

Several of the boy’s friends sitting nearby seemed nearly as incredulous, silently shaking their heads in agreement with the question.

Standing in front of the nearly 20 teens, mostly boys, 18-year-old senior Scott Traylor confirmed in a steady voice: “That’s rape.”

Traylor is one of four peer educators trained to help combat a local rise in STIs among teens, but as the above passage indicates, consent is also a big part of the curriculum.

As part of their training, peer educators are trained by medical professionals, sit in on sex education classes and learn self defense to help build their confidence. Peer educators are recruited directly from the communities where they teach and classes are in high demand. To read more about this promising program, read the full story at The Plain Dealer.

Last week, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer assured us that Tumblr’s robust network of porn blogs would be safe from censorship. We were relieved. But, ironically one of the biggest problems with porn on the internet is that there is already too much. How do you find the good stuff?  To help us sort the wheat from the chaff, Salon‘s Tracy Clark-Flory has compiled a list of the best Tumblr smut sites. What did she miss? Tell us in the comments!
