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.

Google Glass Porn is Coming

It’s common knowledge that if you give people a new technology, they’ll immediately start using it for porn. So no one should be surprised that Google Glass porn is already in production. Google’s “augmented reality” glasses seem ideal for giving viewers a “you are there” POV experience. A company called Mikandi is already experimenting with the new medium. Mikandi co-founder Jennifer McEwen told Violet Blue:

Being hands-free and hassle-free is a simple but big difference Glass has over other similar devices. It’s so easy and familiar to wear, that from a shooter’s perspective it feels like you’re recording with your own eyes. Because it feels so natural, you can forget about the technology and just be in the moment. 

On top of that, with Glass you can share and interact with fans and followers, allowing them intimate access to your experiences. It’s like being John Malkovich where you’re viewing the world through someone else’s eyes.

But is the world ready for Being James Deen? Blue wonders if Google will embrace the porn possibilities of their new toy or follow Apple’s example and try to keep their cool new toy squeaky clean.

Last week, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer assured us that Tumblr’s robust network of porn blogs would be safe from censorship. We were relieved. But, ironically one of the biggest problems with porn on the internet is that there is already too much. How do you find the good stuff?  To help us sort the wheat from the chaff, Salon‘s Tracy Clark-Flory has compiled a list of the best Tumblr smut sites. What did she miss? Tell us in the comments!

Yes, A Girls Porn Parody Is On Its Way

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?

The Future of Tumblr Porn

tumblrIf you heard about Yahoo’s acquisition of Tumblr and your first question was, “what will happen to all my precious porn GIFs?,” don’t worry. Yahoo CEO Melissa Mayer claims she won’t change Tumblr.

“I think the richness and breadth of content available on Tumblr — even though it may not be as brand safe as what’s on our site — is what’s really exciting and allows us to reach even more users.”

Obviously, Yahoo is concerned about how to lure in advertising dollars when many companies are still skittish about being a click away from a creampie. But at least for now, it sounds like your porn is safe.

French adult film actor, producer and director Francois Sagat has retired. The porn polymath has given few details about his decision, announced in this mysterious video shot outside Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland. On his blog, Sagat says:

I have many projects coming out. I have been very busy and not posting here as much. I want to tell you everything. But I do not plan to make porn again. No regrets. Just new goals.

Incubus 2 was my last porn but will not be my last movie. Good to always go out on your high note and leave people wanting more. And more you will get, just not more of the same.

Can we expect Sagat to cross over into mainstream movies?

Porn Long Reads

Yes, sometimes we do actually read the internet for the articles. As proof, we’d like to point you to a couple of great pieces we read recently. First, there’s this amazing profile of Stoya, the internet’s favorite porn star. Kudos to Amanda Hess for showing us another side to one of our heroes.

Also this week, we read “What Do You Desire,” Emily Witt’s marvelous essay about San Francisco, modern love, porn and utopia. Witt uses  her visits to the sets of Kink.com porn shoots to ruminate on her own search for romantic fulfillment. It’s a long read, but worth your time.

If you like reading heady, thoughtful pieces on porn, you’re in luck. Routledge has just announced a call for papers for Porn Studies. It’s described as “the first dedicated, international, peer-reviewed journal to critically explore those cultural products and services designated as pornographic and their cultural, economic, historical, institutional, legal and social contexts.” It’s about time.

Adult Film Industry Organizes Against Proposed State Law Mandating Condoms in Porn

0

by thepleasurechest

unclesamLast November, Los Angeles voters approved Measure B, a law requiring condoms for all porn shoots in LA County. While that law faces appeal, there’s a new challenge to California’s adult film industry. Assembly Bill 332 would enforce a statewide requirement for condoms on all adult film sets.

Our friends at the Free Speech Coalition argue that, if passed, AB 332 would drive the industry out of California. There’s some evidence for this. Since the passage of Measure B, applications for porn film permits in Los Angeles have plummeted, with productions moving to nearby Ventura County. In LA, “only two permits have been issued for pornographic filming so far this year, far off pace for an industry that typically gets about 500 permits annually.”

Aside from the economic impact of a ban, the FSC emphasizes that the adult industry already has effective protocols to protect performers.

“Between April of 2006 and December of 2012 there have been 46,283 new cases of HIV reported in the state of California.  During that same time period only two performers contracted HIV—off set—in their personal lives.  No transmission of HIV has occurred on an adult set since 2004 nationwide.”

They also point out that the bill interferes with a pending lawsuit filed by Vivid Entertainment, challenging the constitutionality of Measure B. Rather than pass yet another law making it harder for the adult industry, the state should wait to see what happens with the suit against Measure B.

The FSC is encouraging friends of the adult film industry to contact members of the Assembly State Labor Committee by phone, fax or email, asking them to oppose AB332 when it comes up for up a vote this Wednesday. The call to action, along with suggested talking points and contact information for the committee members can be found here.
