Marilyn Chambers, Revisited

0

by thepleasurechest

marilyn chambers and ron jeremy

In 1972, Marilyn Chambers starred in the iconic porn film Behind the Green Door - scandalizing a public that knew her as the face of Ivory Snow detergent – and secured her status as one of the major porn stars of the day. Now, apparently, she is largely forgotten. (That’s what we’re told, anyway. We’re confused by the idea that people don’t know who Marilyn Chambers was.) Recently, The Daily Beast featured a touching profile of Chambers’ life after porn. (NSFW for one racy picture and because you might not want your coworkers to see you cry.)

“As a woman, I don’t like someone telling me what to do with my body, and as a performer, I feel very much the same way.” 

That’s our friend and occasional guest educator Jessica Drake in a wonderful profile on CNN.com (!) Read about how Drake got involved in porn, her feelings about California’s Measure B and the stigma associated with being an adult film star on CNN’s site.

How Common is Throat Cancer from HPV?

0

by thepleasurechest

Actor Michael Douglas made news over the weekend by revealing that his recent illness from throat cancer was the result of contracting HPV from cunnilingus. (Yesterday, he seemed to walk back that claim.) Whatever the facts in Douglas’ case, the story highlights a growing concern among medical professionals about the link between HPV and oral cancer. From Jezebel:

Every year in the U.S., about 5,600 men contract cancers of the oropharynx (back of throat), but many of these cancers are related to tobacco and alcohol use, not HPV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A recent study on the prevalence of oral HPV infection in the U.S. found that HPV infection is the principal cause of a specific form of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma that is increasing in incidence among men in the United States, but acknowledged that little is still known about the epidemiology (the study of disease/its prevention) of oral HPV infection.

So, basically there’s a risk, but experts still don’t know how great that risk is. The article goes on to acknowledge that drinking and smoking are two of the primary causes of throat cancer, and may have been contributing factors in Douglas’ illness.

Still, for those of us concerned about the risks associated with HPV and oral sex, there’s a solution. The CDC recommends the vaccine Gardasil for men and women, beginning at 11 and up to age 26. In the meantime, Douglas’ comments have begun an important conversation on HPV and safer sex.

Yes, A Girls Porn Parody Is On Its Way

0

by thepleasurechest

girlsIt was inevitable. Girls, everybody’s favorite show about self-absorbed twentysomethings at play in the borough of Brooklyn, is getting its own porn parody.

“This Ain’t Girls XXX” will be written and directed by porn vet Stuart Canterbury, and released by Hustler. According to Xbiz:

In the XXX parody, Hannah (Alex Chance) decides to forsake men, and boyfriend Adam, to experiment with lesbianism. After a few satisfying jaunts she returns to Adam — and mankind.

Star Richie Calhoun claims that the parody will be very similar to its source, but with longer intercourse scenes. This is hard for us to imagine, since the series is already the most sexually explicit program on television. Won’t a porn version be redundant? Wouldn’t it pale in comparison to the show’s trailblazing and honest depiction of sex? For her part, series star and creator Lena Dunham isn’t exactly thrilled.

What about you? Are you a fan of Girls? Will you watch this porn parody?
