If you want to see it in action, check out this clip from Rachael Ray’s show.

Stephen Colbert’s bit on the NSA spying scandal last night was very funny. But our favorite part was his unexpected pitch for the Acuvibe Massager, which happens at the 3:05 mark. Do you use the Acuvibe for something other than soothing sore muscles? Your secret is safe with us.

Plan B is Now OTC

“The government intends to file with the Circuit Court notice that it is voluntarily withdrawing its appeal in this matter.”

With that single sentence, the White House and the Department of Justice have ended their legal challenges against Plan B, paving the way for the emergency contraception pill to appear on drug store shelves without a prescription. This is a big victory for reproductive freedom.

The Big Business Of Porn Parodies

Speaking of erotic fan fiction, Buzzfeed has a great profile today of prolific porn director Axel Braun. The ambitious auteur has made some of the most beloved porn parodies including adaptations of Star Trek, Star Wars, The Dark Knight and many more. Braun, a lifelong comic book nerd, has an obsession for detail and makes an effort to recreate the look of the original blockbusters on a tiny fraction of their budgets.  He takes pride that some fans ignore the lengthy XXX cuts of his films and skip to the sex-free versions on DVD. Buzzfeed’s Tessa Stuart found him on the set of his upcoming Man of Steel porn parody. Here’s a revealing excerpt:

Before he can finish his thought, Braun is interrupted by Man of Steel XXX’s director of photography, Eli Cross. “You have an RV,” Cross shouts from across the soundstage. “Please go to it.”

Braun looks up to see the actors getting in position. “Oh — sex?” he asks.

“Yes,” Cross says patiently, waiting for Braun to leave.

“I do not shoot the sex,” says Adult Video News’ three-time Director of the Year as he exits the hangar. He walks into an air-conditioned luxury RV emblazoned with the Axel Braun Productions logo, and shuts the door.

That’s right, Braun doesn’t even shoot the sex for his porn parodies. Read more about Braun and the big business of porn parody at Buzzfeed.

No Pants Required

phil collins

His grey-stubbled face sanded her damask cheeks with a percussive rasp. His body, so taut and muscular for his 61 years, pinned her girlish form to the elevator wall. Wave after wave of desire surged through her, as she grappled with his smoking jacket, inhaling his rich aroma of Old Spice and drumming-induced musk. She felt herself being swept into – to quote the 1986 Genesis hit – a ‘Land of Confusion’.

Yes, it’s Phil Collins erotic fanfic. Otherwise know as “philrotica.”

Phil doesn’t do it for you? Perhaps you’re more of a Roy Orbison fan?

Children Of Gay Parents Are Happier

Here’s something that should make gay folks even prouder this Pride season. A new study has found that children of gay and lesbian parents are doing as well or better than the rest of the population. That finding is from a study of 500 Australian children by Melbourne University in the largest survey yet on the effects of same sex parenting.

An interim report found there was no statistical difference between children of same-sex couples and the rest of the population on indicators including self-esteem, emotional behaviour and the amount of time spent with parents.

However, children of same-sex couples scored higher than the national average for overall health and family cohesion, measuring how well the family members get along.

The researchers claim that children of same sex parents may be doing better because of more open communication.

Because of the situation that same-sex families find themselves in, they are generally more willing to communicate and approach the issues that any child may face at school, like teasing or bullying,” lead researcher Dr Simon Crouch said.

”This fosters openness and means children tend to be more resilient. That would be our hypothesis.’

While this may not be news to many of our readers, we’re happy to see science validate what many of us know. You only need love to make a family.
