Anti-porn crusaders are going after Twitter next,” reports Samantha Cole at Vice:

“‘It might be hard to imagine, but just like any other kind of fandom there is a large fandom community for adult content on Twitter,” Mistress Harley, a tech dominatrix, said.

Harley said she sees the issue of adult content moderation on Twitter as one of accountability. ‘I do not see any reason that any anonymous person should be able to post adult content, the lack of accountability for the people posting is what leads to an environment where people feel that they can get away with posting illegal content,’ she said. ‘Pornography is not illegal or prohibited by law in the USA, so there is no reason platforms should be universally banning legal adult content while claiming to purge reprehensible illegal content.'”

Need a way to talk about that couple you date every few years when you all have open dance cards, that person you have sex with whenever you end up in the same city, that other person you play with when you both attend the same annual event? Try thinking of them as comet relationships.

There’s a difference between loneliness and isolation.

We are beings in motion.”

Stop calling your dating person or partner or girlfriend or spouse or whoever by their first initial only online.

Here’s how to figure out if your hook up is cheating on someone with you. Is that your responsibility? Not particularly – the person responsible for being honest with their partner(s) is the person involved with that or those partner(s). But if you’re getting a particular vibe and want to know more, there are a few ways you can find out.

I’m an adult performer. Here’s why I’m abandoning Amazon wishlists.

Here’s how to set boundaries with a friend who treats you like a therapist.

Do you create a break-up plan with your partners?

What is the best vagina emoji? Probably the oyster:

“The oyster is as close as the emoji dictionary gets to a perfect pussy mimesis. The shape is right, the little bivalve calls to mind a highly appropriate brininess and texture and let’s not forget that the oyster is a famous aphrodisiac — so the inherent eroticism of the thing is a fine match for the eggplant, firm and tall. Plus, the hinge at the oyster’s top resembles a clit, and the desktop version of the oyster emoji even contains a pearl, which gestures toward the rarefied and luxurious conditions inside a vagina. No other emoji compares. Why even bother continuing?”

  1. I love the concept of comet relationships! I definitely have had a tendency to worry that those kinds of relationships (platonic or romantic really) are somehow a failure on my part when I really like a person, but sometimes that’s just what’s possible or even ideal in context. Something to think about
