The UK Banned a Bunch of Sex Acts from Porn. Let’s Judge Them.

0

by Kate M.

xxx

Seriously, United Kingdom? Seriously?

Yesterday, you banned the following sex acts from online porn (as you had already banned them from porn on DVD):

Spanking

Caning

Aggressive whipping

Penetration by any object “associated with violence”

Physical or verbal abuse (regardless of  if consensual)

Urolagnia (known as “water sports”)

Role-playing as non-adults

Physical restraint

Humiliation

Female ejaculation

Strangulation

Facesitting

Fisting

Why? Because allowing consenting adults to perform these acts is “harmful to minors.” (You know what? We’re not even going to unpack that. We’re just going to leave that there.) Also, the last three items on the list were identified as potentially “life-endangering”. Alright, UK, we’ll give you strangulation; it can actually be life-threatening. Go ahead and ban actual strangulation in porn, from a workplace safety perspective. But fisting? And – come on – when did facesitting become a deadly oral sex position?

Facesitting: the silent killer.

We can understand where you’re coming from on a lot of these, if we make a real effort. If you believe that seeing violent imagery in porn makes people more likely to be violent with their partners – and there is no evidence to suggest that it does – then, sure, we see how you would identify a lot of these kinks as harmful. Again, though, watching golden showers in porn isn’t going to make someone find their partner and pee on them out of nowhere, like some kind of mindless porno robot.

Even if we assume that watching a humiliation scene will make us scream obscenities at strangers, or that watching a grown adult role play as a naughty schoolboy is suddenly going to make us all unfit to teach or parent, why the heck is female ejaculation on the list?

UK, listen. That’s just how some people orgasm sometimes. It’s not violent. It’s not even a learned behavior, unless someone actually makes an effort to learn it.

If you’re worried that children are getting the bulk of their early sex education from porn, provide more and better sex ed. If you’re worried that porn performers aren’t safe, do some actual research into how to make their workplaces safer. Banning a list of sex acts that kinda squick you out isn’t helping anyone.

Get it together, UK.

Advent Calendar Day 3:
Fun Factory B Balls & Layaspot

30

by Kate M.

Update: Congratulations to John, who won with “Bah Humbuggery!”

Welcome to day three of our Holiday Advent Calendar, where we’re giving away 24 prizes in 24 days, including many of our favorite toys! Every day, we’ll be posting a new contest and linking to it from the Holiday Advent Calendar main page, where you can also find more details and tips for how to win.

Today, we’re giving away a set of Fun Factory B Balls and a Fun Factory Layaspot! B Balls are body-safe silicone anal beads with a slim base that fits comfortably between your cheeks, so that you can wear them like a butt plug. Each ball holds a smaller ball that rumbles and rotates as you move. The Layaspot fits into the palm of your hand, but gives off strong vibrations. It is unbelievably easy to operate, with one button for to turn it on and up and one button to turn it off and down.

Day 3 B Balls Day 3 Layaspot

Want to win? Here’s how. 

In the comments below, come up with the title for one (and only one) winter holiday-themed porno (i.e. Jingle Balls). We’ll pick our favorite tomorrow at 11:30am PST.

Advent Calendar Day 2:
Minna Limon

29

by Kate M.

Update: Congratulations to Dana, whose assertion that the British Secret Intelligence Service used to use semen as invisible ink is not only true, but it made us say “WHAT?” out loud. Additionally, a Google search revealed that the person overseeing the invisible ink operation was named Captain Sir Mansfield Cumming. (You cannot make this up.) Also, they ran into the problem that, if they weren’t fresh, the letters would start to stink. Google this. It’s so good. Thank you to everyone who entered. You all seriously brought it. Come back later for another chance to win advent goodies! 

Welcome to day two of our Holiday Advent Calendar, where we’re giving away 24 prizes in 24 days, including many of our favorite toys! Every day, we’ll be posting a new contest and linking to it from the Holiday Advent Calendar main page, where you can also find more details and tips for how to win.

Today, we’re giving away a Minna Limon!

This sweet little vibe is no lemon! The harder you squeeze the Minna Limon, the harder it vibrates, making it an ideal toy to use with a partner. You can even use its streamlined controls to record and play back your favorite vibration patterns. The Limon is waterproof, rechargeable, and made of the best body-safe materials.

Day 2 Minna Limon

 

Want to win? Here’s how.

We’re shamelessly stealing the concept from Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, a new game show podcast from Freakonomics.

The rules: Tell us something about sex (something scientific, something historical, something psychological, a neat fact about a piece of slang, whatever!) that you think that we won’t already know. It has to be interesting and verifiably true. Tomorrow at 11:30am PST, we’ll judge your answers based on whether it meets the criteria, and pick a favorite fact, based on our completely subjective standards of what’s interesting. The person who tells us the coolest thing we didn’t already know wins!

Transgender Day of Remembrance Writings: Memorializing, Listening, Taking Action

0

by Kate M.

trans flag

It’s Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day set aside to memorialize the people who have been killed over the last year because of anti-trans hatred and prejudice. If you’re interested in participating in a vigil, you can find one here.

In the meantime, we wanted to point you in the direction of a few of the best things we’ve read recently about Transgender Day of Remembrance, about people’s personal experiences, and/or about action you can take.

“TDOR 2014 Musings” from TransGriot
“…It is an opportunity for the trans community to raise awareness that we exist and these murders are happening. It gives an opportunity to partner with our allies, community build, grieve for our dead, and steel ourselves for the ongoing task to ensure that we do the necessary work to make the TDOR’s unnecessary.”

“Invisibility: Craving for Representation as a Trans Person of Color” from Black Girl Dangerous
“[My aunt] doesn’t know much about trans people – what she knows, she has learned from the media. First, she remembered that genital reconstruction surgery is expensive, and a privilege reserved for the upper classes. And second, she remembered that poor trans women of color are often assaulted and murdered, and that nobody seems to care. She was worried about me.”

 “Remembering Us When We’re Gone, Ignoring Us While We’re Here: Trans Women Deserve More” from Autostraddle
“Don’t get me wrong, it’s important to honor those women who came before us, those women murdered by colonial patriarchy. But it seems like more often than not, the queer community at large is content with just remembering. We only hear about trans women after their deaths.”  

The author of this piece also provides a great list of places to give your money if you want it to benefit trans women, as opposed to queer/LGBT causes at large.

“Transgender Day of Remembrance: Critique is Resistance; Resistance is Revolution” from Autostraddle
“I implore you to sit back and ask yourself how you contribute to the violence and injustice against trans women of color. How do you reinforce the marginalization and ostracism of myself and my sisters? It’s all fine that we become aware of our lives but we need more than for you to finally see that we are walking this Earth. We need you to hear us. We need you to sit quietly, take notes, and begin to conceptualize what a restructured system that is void of misogynist, racist, ableist, etc oppression would look like.”
