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.

We can honestly say that it’s mesmerizing.

Have you considered working in porn?  The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, a group that includes some of the best-known porn stars out there, has put out a video for prospective performers. In it, working performers cover everything from on-set etiquette to consent, to STIs, to income, to what you can expect from your agent. Even if you have no interest in working in the adult industry, it’s definitely worth a watch.

A Downton Abbey Porn Parody? Heavens!

We were deeply happy to discover that Down on Abby, the porn parody of everyone’s favorite soap opera set in an English manor house, is in the works. From Time:

The porn version of Julian Fellowes’ award winning drama is set at the illustrious estate of Bottomley Manor owned by * ahem * Lord and Lady Grabhem who live there with their stepdaughters Abby and Fanny and, naturally, a manservant called Master Bates.

What can we expect? Erotic silver-polishing? Vintage underclothes? Homoerotic tension in the trenches? There are so many possibilities.

What Makes A Good Dick Pic?

Wondering what to do this weekend? Why not get lost in a vortex of dick pics?

Critique My Dick Pic (NSFW) is a blog that fulfills an essential function: teaching dick pic takers what a good dick pic looks like. Its founder and resident dick pic critic, Madeleine Holden, remains body positive throughout, focusing on composition and thoughtfulness rather than the dicks themselves. In a recent article for The Hairpin, Holden answered the question on all of our minds: “what makes a good dick pic?” (All links NSFW.)

I’m often asked this, and I consistently repeat a few key tips: don’t send a log. Realize the power of your hands to transform a dick pic from ordinary to wettie-inducing. Pay attention to the background and setting of your picture, and understand how off-putting a visible pile of dirty laundry or extremely mundane collection of shower gels can be.

We recommend that you spend some time on her blog learning about the triumphs and failures of others, and then try creating a masterpiece of your own.

Tristan Taormino on Feminist Porn

We were honestly surprised to see that Cosmopolitan recently featured an interview with wildly prolific educator, author and pornographer Tristan Taormino, in which she answered questions about feminist porn. Normally, Cosmo’s sex writing is more “Ten Tricks to Please Your Man” and less “What role do you think mainstream porn plays in the sexualization of men?” but this interview really impressed us.

Says Taormino,

Feminist pornographers are committed to gender equality and social justice. Feminist porn is ethically produced porn, which means that performers are paid a fair wage and they are treated with care and respect; their consent, safety, and well-being are critical, and what they bring to the production is valued.

We recommend that you check it out, both as a primer on feminist porn and for Taormino’s recommendations for the feminist porn novice, including The Crash Pad series and her own Rough Sex films.

Then, if you want to hear more from Tristan Taormino, watch her interviews on Sex is Back, our new storytelling campaign.
