Porn Long Reads

Yes, sometimes we do actually read the internet for the articles. As proof, we’d like to point you to a couple of great pieces we read recently. First, there’s this amazing profile of Stoya, the internet’s favorite porn star. Kudos to Amanda Hess for showing us another side to one of our heroes.

Also this week, we read “What Do You Desire,” Emily Witt’s marvelous essay about San Francisco, modern love, porn and utopia. Witt uses  her visits to the sets of Kink.com porn shoots to ruminate on her own search for romantic fulfillment. It’s a long read, but worth your time.

If you like reading heady, thoughtful pieces on porn, you’re in luck. Routledge has just announced a call for papers for Porn Studies. It’s described as “the first dedicated, international, peer-reviewed journal to critically explore those cultural products and services designated as pornographic and their cultural, economic, historical, institutional, legal and social contexts.” It’s about time.
