+ Sex workers can be really funny, and at Tits and Sass Lane Champagne discusses the role of humor in sex work activism:

“In a world that is awash in grisly tales of the sex trade and impossibly bad information about sex work and the people that do it, sometimes I’m afraid that our humor might be perceived as callous. Sometimes I think that perhaps we needed to button up and put on our serious faces to be participants in this discourse. That maybe we’d be taken more seriously if we acted more seriously. But then I realize that this is precisely the kind of capitulation that antis would love to see, because it would rob our discourse of the texture it is given by our laughter, our triumphs, and our sorrows. It would reduce us to what they are: a series of talking points with an agenda rather than a movement of diverse human experiences.”

+ In her last column (at the Awl), Polly has advice for sleeping with monogamously unhappily attached people, namely, that it is a bad idea, and so is constantly chasing fantasy:

“We are all tempted to be shiny. There are so many shiny women out there. We are taught—and eventually we believe, in our hearts—that shininess is the surest route to love. But aiming for shiny is like living in the dark. […]

The most beautiful, loving, poetic souls in the world know that the most beautiful, lovable people in the world are the ones who are a little tarnished, a little scratched. If you want true love in your life, you will stop trying to be a brilliant silver chalice, and you’ll aim to be a misshapen pewter cup instead. Something ordinary, that you can pick up and feel and rub between your hands. Something regular and dented and scratched.”

+ The religious right thinks some weird things about sex, is depressing:

“Planned Parenthood is trying to push your kids into having kinky sex! Lila Rose, with her organization Live Action, is single-mindedly obsessed with trying to take down the Planned Parenthood. Her ostensible reason is that the health care organization offers abortion, but it becomes clear, when engaging with her work, that the real objection is that Planned Parenthood offers support to people who want to have happy, healthy sex lives, and Rose really does not want people to have those happy, healthy sex lives.

This became exquisitely clear in her latest “sting” operation on Planned Parenthood, where she had volunteers go into Planned Parenthood offices, present themselves as people asking for information and advice on sex, and then filming the workers—and this is supposed to be shocking—answering the questions asked of them.”

+ On the most recent episode of Popaganda, Jess Fink, Jiz Lee, Lynsey G and Katherine Cross discuss feminist porn and erotica.

+ The top BDSM-related porn searches in the US come from Wyoming.

+ Vanity Fair profiled Madame Claude, a prolific 1960s French madam.

+ Oh Joy Sex Toy has a guide to having a threesome.

+ Stoya also discussed group sex, as well as “straight” girl friends-with-benefits-but-maybe-feelings sex:

“Do you want to start developing a romantic relationship with this girl? If so, go talk to her and find out if she’s receptive to developing a romantic relationship with you. Assuming that both of you are interested in dating each other, you then need to talk about what a relationship means to both of you. […]

It might turn out that this girl has no interest in your feelings, in which case you’ll still have the benefit of clearer ideas about what you want from sexual and romantic relationships.”

+ Hitachi just doesn’t want to talk about what people do with their Magic Wands, okay?:

“[A]rchaic laws restricting the sale of sex toys have slowly dropped from the books and public figures like Oprah have legitimized the subject in mainstream media, but masturbation and its accoutrement are still taboo. In fact, information about the Magic Wand is hard to come by outside of personal anecdotes and the device’s official site. MagicWandOriginal.com contains a list of specs, user reviews and a vague history of the device, but zero mention of its origins.

It appears that silence is no mistake. We reached out to Hitachi multiple times while researching this story and received no answer. In fact, according to Eddie Romero, director of operations for Vibratex, the primary US importer of the device, Hitachi was ready to pull the plug entirely before last summer’s redesign.”
