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

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

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.

Jessica Drake Speaks Out

“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.

The Curious Case of Playgirl

0

by thepleasurechest

playgirl 

The basic thinking was that by speaking directly to women we could appeal on some level to both markets: gay men would still buy it, since they were fine with, and maybe not even averse to, enjoying something not overtly aimed at them. But that, if we marketed it the other way, the reverse would not hold true: no woman was going to buy gay male porn.

That’s former Playgirl editor Jessanne Collins in a revealing interview with Salon to promote her new ebook on running the famous male nudie mag. Read about the challenges of appealing to a female readership and a largely secret gay following, and about the many hilarious euphemisms for the penis found in the company’s epic thesaurus. ” Purple-helmeted warrior of love” anyone?

Stoya’s Straight Talk for Aspiring Porn Stars

So you want to be a porn star. Hold up. Before you quit your job, take five to read this helpful wisdom from Stoya, (who is something of an expert).

Unless the whole of civilization as we know it is destroyed, any nude or sexually explicit images will remain available on the internet in some way forever. Decide whether the chance to have sex with that one particular performer or have that professionally videotaped gang bang is worth the potential that every single person you know now or ever will know in the future will see it.

This is good advice and there’s much more at Vice.

The Big Business Of Porn Parodies

Speaking of erotic fan fiction, Buzzfeed has a great profile today of prolific porn director Axel Braun. The ambitious auteur has made some of the most beloved porn parodies including adaptations of Star Trek, Star Wars, The Dark Knight and many more. Braun, a lifelong comic book nerd, has an obsession for detail and makes an effort to recreate the look of the original blockbusters on a tiny fraction of their budgets.  He takes pride that some fans ignore the lengthy XXX cuts of his films and skip to the sex-free versions on DVD. Buzzfeed’s Tessa Stuart found him on the set of his upcoming Man of Steel porn parody. Here’s a revealing excerpt:

Before he can finish his thought, Braun is interrupted by Man of Steel XXX’s director of photography, Eli Cross. “You have an RV,” Cross shouts from across the soundstage. “Please go to it.”

Braun looks up to see the actors getting in position. “Oh — sex?” he asks.

“Yes,” Cross says patiently, waiting for Braun to leave.

“I do not shoot the sex,” says Adult Video News’ three-time Director of the Year as he exits the hangar. He walks into an air-conditioned luxury RV emblazoned with the Axel Braun Productions logo, and shuts the door.

That’s right, Braun doesn’t even shoot the sex for his porn parodies. Read more about Braun and the big business of porn parody at Buzzfeed.

Ikea Porn

For some of us, browsing the Ikea catalog can be a deeply pleasurable experience, as we fantasize about all those sleek, modern furnishings transforming our cramped little homes. Now, fans of the Swedish furniture company can take their fetish one step further thanks to a brilliant new Tumblr comprised of GIFs highlighting Ikea products in amateur porn. Warning: it’s not at all safe for work.

Google Says No To Glass Porn

Well, that was fast. Just a few days after it was reported that a Seattle-based company was developing porn for Google Glass, the tech giant has announced a ban on adult-oriented apps for their new space-age goggles.

“We don’t allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts or sexually explicit material,” according to Google’s Glass platform developer policies, which were updated Saturday to offer more information about what developers can and cannot do with the software they make for Glass, which Google refers to as “Glassware.”

It’s not clear what this means for the future of porn on Google Glass. MiKandi’s representative said in response to the new policy, “We’re not going to just stop. We have to think about our next strategy.”

Meanwhile, Pinterest is relaxing its ban on nudity. We wonder if this means we can repost that dildo photo they took down last month.
