Simpsons Porn Parody. Turn On or Buzz Off?

5

by thepleasurechest

Last week, we asked you to weigh in on the Zombi Art Dildo from the line of horror movie-inspired toys from Necronomicox. The overwhelming majority of our readers had a grave response. Nearly 27% of you declared the Zombi a “Yawn of the Dead” while a decisive 48% hammered the final nail into its coffin. To the handful of necrophiles and horror fans who dug the undead dildo, have fun, but don’t forget, this Zombi doesn’t want you for your brains!

In case there are still traces of your innocence left, we submit this week’s contestant: the Simpsons porn parody.

If you follow the adult industry, you know that parodies are very popular. From Pirates of the Carribean and Avatar, to Batman and Sex & The City, our pop culture past and present is being plundered for prurient profit. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

And nothing is sacred. Not even the cartoons of our youth. If you think Simpsons porn is a special kind of wrong, ask how it differs from the hardcore Flintstones or the upcoming Justice League porn parody. In fact, Simpsons adult fanfic and illustrated Simpsons porn has been with us for a long time. (Google it, if you must.)

Still, are we ready to see the beloved characters of the longest running series in the history of American TV engaging in hardcore sex? The already infamous trailer from Larry Flynt Productions touts: “You’ve never seen sex this yellow.” Some tagline, eh? Round here, we are uncurious about yellow sex. How about you, dear reader? The Simpsons porn parody. Turn On or Buzz Off?

Nina Needs Your Help

0

by thepleasurechest

Our friend Nina Hartley needs your help. The sex educator and porn legend will be undergoing an expensive surgery, and facing a mountain of medical bills. A mutual friend posted this message to the charitable website GiveForward.com:

If you’re reading this you’re likely already a friend, or fan, of Nina’s. Thanks for taking the time to be here. She’s always made an effort to connect on the personal level with all she meets, and it’s from that personal level that I write this. If you’ve ever had a moment’s fun with any of her work there’s something real, concrete and life saving you can do for her and it won’t take much.

She is seeking funds to cover her recovery from surgery, tentatively scheduled for late January/early February 2011. Recovery will take 2-4 weeks, depending on how it goes.

As some of you already know she has fibroid tumors in her uterus. They’re genetic and are not cancer, nor will they turn into cancer, so that’s a blessing right there. However they are unsightly and are starting to cause other, negative side effects. After dealing with them for nearly twenty years the time has come for a permanent solution. She thought that nearing menopause would cause them to shrink but they show no signs of doing so. So, surgery is the next step. She’s lucky enough to have medical insurance to cover the cost of the operation. What she needs is money to cover her expenses during recovery. In twenty-six years she’s never needed help more. As an example of how easy it could be, if each of her Twitter followers donated just five dollars that would cover everything.

Hartley is one of the most visible and passionate members of the sex positive community– a feminist, pornographer, sex educator and hero. Please consider donating to Hartley’s recovery, and sharing this message with others. Thank you!

by thepleasurechest

Burning Angel model Jessie Lee needs your help. Lee was seriously hurt in a car accident on November 5th, sustaining a broken neck and severe head trauma. Joanna Angel has set up a website to keep Lee’s fans updated on her progress and to help raise money for her treatment. Fans in NY have also organized two high profile fundraisers on Lee’s behalf. On Wednesday, November 24th, the Broadway Comedy Club will host an evening of comedy, burlesque and appearances by adult film stars. Next up, on November 29th, erotic arts group, Darling House will host a rock & roll gallery show at the Beauty Bar  featuring work from 20 erotic photographers and performances by Madame Rosebud, Stormy Leather and more. Fans in LA will get their own chance to pitch in when the show comes to Studio Servitu on January 13th. Until then, well-wishers can send gifts, cards and donations to Lee here.

Condoms & porn: What you said

0

by thepleasurechest

While the latest HIV scare in the porn industry seems to be over, the debate about condoms in porn rages on. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation continues to take a hard line, arguing that mandatory condoms are needed to protect workers’ safety. Still, there are many people in the industry who argue that condoms carry their own health risks for porn actors. We’ve been running a poll for over two months, asking what you think. The results are in. We admit that 47 votes isn’t a very big pool of respondents. But unless you’re a sample size queen (science joke, sorry), you might find the numbers interesting.

Nearly a third of voters support mandatory condom usage, while slightly more than that don’t want to see condoms in their porn at all. The remaining votes (a little over 25%) support voluntary condom usage. Verdict: our readers are just as divided as the industry itself. (Either that, or we suck at conducting polls.)

This debate will likely continue as long as there is an AIDS crisis, and as long as our sex negative society pushes porn to the fringes as a legitimate career choice. In the meantime, we think indie porn star/director Madison Young had the most thoughtful comment on the great condom debate.

There needs to be an element of choice, and the choice shouldn’t be that if you want work you don’t use condoms and if you want to use condoms then you don’t work.

We couldn’t agree more.

It Gets Better

by thepleasurechest

In an expanding universe, time is on the side of the outcast. Those who once inhabited the suburbs of human contempt find that without changing their address they eventually live in the metropolis. — Quentin Crisp

In recognition of National Coming Out Day, we’re throwing our support behind Dan Savage and his It Gets Better viral video campaign to combat homophobia and suicide among queer youth. The project has resulted in some surprising and candid videos from a number of folks in the sex positive community,  but we’d like to give a special shout out to porn star Buck Angel for this heartfelt message.

Savage’s campaign is so popular that even The White House tried to co-opt his rhetoric, with an opportunistic speech by presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett at the HRC dinner this past weekend.  Well, Savage ain’t havin’ it. We’re happy to see him standing his ground, and helping to spread the message.

Last but not least, here’s lesbian comic Wanda Sykes, with a hilarious take on coming out. When it comes to comedy, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Bill O’ Reilly is into Doin’ “it” Live!

0

by thepleasurechest

Pugnacious pundit and noted loofah enthusiast Bill O’ Reilly fancies himself an anti-porn crusader and defender of traditional values. This morning, however, the Boston Phoenix published a column revealing that while a grad student at Boston University in 1974, O’ Reilly penned a lengthy, and very sympathetic interview with Gerard Damiano.  The legendary director of Deep Throat was in Boston to promote the release of his second feature Devil in Miss Jones and O’ Reilly took Damiano out to lunch, to talk about the porn business, Linda Lovelace and Hollywood.

This is not the first time that O’ Reilly’s fixation on porn has gotten attention. His 1998 novel Those Who Trespass contains some steamy dialogue, including this line: “Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up.” You can even hear the author read his steamy prose in these audiobook clips generously hosted by the Village Voice. We look forward to the Fox News host excoriating  his youthful self for being a smut peddler on the next episode of The Factor. (Well, actually we don’t.) Instead we imagine things look a little more like this around O’ Reilly’s studio today.
