No, The Governor is Da Ho!

Idaho governor Butch Otter -

[wild facial contortions as we hold in laughter]

Okay. Idaho governor [deep breath] Butch Otter -

[snrk]

- was in a Western-style softcore porn movie. [I MEAN COME ON.]

To be totally fair, he was cast – for his “authentic Idaho looks” – in the small part of a corrupt sheriff, a character who never gets anywhere near the [ahem] action. To be even more fair, it was originally released as an R-rated movie, with the bewildering title, A Time to Revenge. Its release as a porno didn’t happen until ten years later, in 2007.

This is not, however, a moment for fairness. This is a moment for unadulterated glee at jokes that write themselves.

Some wonderful person (“a Dutch female illustrator,” according to her website) has made a series of kinky alphabet prints, called KinkyABC. Quick question: is there anywhere you don’t want to hang a picture of folks in heels walking over a landscape of butts? We thought not.

minna limon

Congratulations to Rusty and Mike, who both frightened/delighted us enough that we had to send them each a Limon! Thanks to everyone who entered. You’re all seriously twisted, and we love you for it. Keep an eye out for more giveaways this month!

We’re giving away a Minna Limon, the fabulous new toy that you can control with the pressure of your squeeze! Its streamlined one button interface makes it easy to record and play back your favorite vibration patterns, tease your partner, or please yourself.

Want to win a Minna Limon? Here’s how.

Pressure us! In the comments below, give us your most creative threat. Here’s the twist: absolutely no threats of violence. Here’s what we’re looking for:

“Give me the Limon, or I’ll paint the inside of your shoes with silicone lube. You’ll never be able to keep them on your feet again!”

“Give me the Limon, or I’ll sing every U2 song, in chronological order, in the voice of Kate Bush.”

We’ll give up the Limon to the person whose threat makes us laugh, cringe, and quake in our boots all at once. A winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 11th at noon PST.

U.S. residents only.

lesbian porn nails

Maybe you’ve heard the axiom that queer ladies don’t like girl-on-girl porn because of the long nails. Basically, lots of queer women  enjoy fingering. Comfortable fingering all but requires short, well-groomed nails because otherwise OW. (If you love your nails, you can pad the fingers latex or nitrile gloves with cotton balls, and avoid stabbing your partner that way.) Many ladies who enjoy fingering take a look at the performers’ long nails in a lot of girl-on-girl scenes and say, “No thank you.”

There are a few ways that a person can deal with this. One is to forgo porn entirely. Another is to check out some of the fabulous queer produced porn that’s out there. A third, less intuitive option is to protest mainstream porn with a series of embroidered close-ups of long nails and vulvas. One Tumblr-er did just that, and it is amazing.

365 Days, 365 Dicks

penis art

Remember when you were young, when drawing a dick on something was a tiny act of rebellion? You may have had to take algebra, but you were sure as shit going to draw a dick on your spiral notebook in whiteout pen. Ah, the salad days.

One dude just took that to an extreme. When his wife bought a whiteboard, he decided to draw a different penis on it every day for a year. The results are actually really impressive: a Godzilla penis destroying a city, works of art with penises subbed in (like Birth of Penis, above), studies in perspective, images from myth, history, and the Bible, lots of animals and foods with additional dicks, and so on. It’s well worth watching the slideshow, with the fair warning that the images do get violent after a while. Lots of dis-(I’m sorry)-memberment.

Intro to Female Masking

0

by thepleasurechest

female masking

Last week, The Atlantic ran a really lovely piece about female masking – the practice of a “specific subset of cross-dressing men” who wear rubber masks shaped like women’s faces, often (but not always) because it turns them on.

The article, “What Men Find Behind Female Masks,” focuses primarily on two maskers: Kerry, who makes his living making and selling female masks, and Lisa, who keeps her masking identity completely separate from her “male life.” They each describe their very different family and romantic lives and the extent to which they can be open about their shared kink. One detail that unites their stories is that they have both found a certain amount of comfort and community online, where they can connect with other maskers. Kerry mentions that, before the internet, he thought that he was alone in his interest in masks.

The author, Luke Malone, who also produced Secrets of the Living Dolls, an upcoming film about masking, lets his interviewees speak for themselves and is conscientious about using their preferred pronouns (which is infuriatingly uncommon in mainstream news). The article’s language isn’t perfect, but it’s markedly better than most of what’s out there. We highly recommend giving it a read.
