Marilyn Chambers, Revisited

0

by thepleasurechest

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.)

3D Cybersex is Here

3D cybersex

Sexting is so last year. Soon, you’ll be able to use Chathouse3D, a cybersex program that will allow its users to act out their dirty talk using 3D avatars. It looks a bit like The Sims, with a lot of hardcore sex. Users will be able to interact with each other, or go into “voyeur mode,” which will allow them to watch other users’ sex scenes, with or without being seen.

Chathouse3D is designed to be used with the (truly massive) Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, for the full 3D experience.  You can check out a video of both the headset and the game itself, or even sign up to be a beta tester, here. (NSFW times a million.)

Our friend April Flores has just released a book with her partner in crime Carlos Batts. Fat Girl is a sexy, groundbreaking collection of erotic photographs featuring the many faces of Flores. The pair had a book release launch at Coagula Curatorial in LA’s Chinatown this past Saturday and we were honored to host the party’s spanking station. Check out these snaps from the night.

Google Glass Porn Is Here

0

by thepleasurechest

Even though Google has officially banned porn apps for Google Glass, they can’t stop the adult industry from trying out a new toy. Last week, Xbiz and MiKandi released a trailer for the first porn video shot on Google Glass. With its POV possibilities, Glass could revolutionize porn or become just another fad like 3D. After watching this amusing video starring James Deen, we wonder if Google might be privately pleased that the capabilities of Glass are so prominently featured in the trailer. It’s practically an advertisement.

Tumblr Hides Your Porn Stash

1

by thepleasurechest

When Yahoo purchased Tumblr back in May, the social media’s site’s smut fans got nervous. Would a fuddy duddy brand like Yahoo mess with Tumblr’s vibrant adult blog community?

And now we know the answer.

Yesterday, Tumblr announced new guidelines for adult content on its blogs. Though they won’t be policing your dirty gifs and pervy pics, they’ll make your porn blog invisible to search engines. Blogs with questionable content will now be divided into two categories.

NSFW blogs contain occasional nudity or mature/adult-oriented content.

Adult blogs contain substantial nudity or mature/adult-oriented content.

The chart below shows how the new classifications affect the visibility and accessibility of your Tumblr page.

If your Tumblr is primarily devoted to porn, it’ll be harder than ever to find– closer to a porn stash in your sock drawer than a well-indexed library of smut. To learn more about the changes on Tumblr’s adult pages, check out the full story in The Atlantic.

“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. Also, be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes photo gallery shot by Chris McPherson.
