Why would a woman's website ask a guy like me, who's known for writing sexually graphic and honest novels, to write something sexually graphic and honest -- only to edit it into something without a single sexually graphic phrase or a sentence of honesty?
The biggest referral source for my therapy practice is the computer. Why? Because of internet infidelity. With one click of the keyboard, women can discover a whole world her partner is engaged in and would have never known otherwise.
iTunesconnect ticketed my new novel The Love of My (Other) Life, denying it access to the unlimited pleasures of worldwide distribution through iTunes. The reason: the cover art was deemed "inappropriate."
Is this sexualization of the American zeitgeist a passing phase, or have we permanently discarded our puritan roots?
Obviously, the future of relationships and sexual behavior for at least some digital natives is going to look a lot different than the relationships and sexual behavior of older generations.
I bothers me deeply when people assume that I have no morals because I make porn. I constantly evaluate and rethink the way in which I present my business and the way in which I talk about sex. Love, respect and empathy are my core values.
It became clear that I could make a living creating fetish porn, and I jumped at the opportunity. But for me, porn has never been just a business -- it's about providing access for hundreds of thousands of people like me whose fantasies live outside the bounds of conventional sexuality.
The world of sexual habits could be a better place if people were able to seek out a quality sex life without having only pornography as a guide. We should not be ashamed to have questions about sex and we should have safe avenues to view it.
Why aren't more porn performers for Measure B? Does anybody else think it's strange that they don't want to wear condoms?
In order to make sure boys aren't relying on pornography to develop their sexual values, we all need to shift from "The Talk."
Porn stars have effectively schooled me on why condoms suck in porn (no pun intended). But how accurate are their STI tests? And is that enough to justify losing the rubber?
Darren moved to California around 1975, leaving Tim and his hometown behind. Tim remembers warning him that he'd be "just another pretty face" on the West Coast. But it wasn't long before that pretty face started popping up in the adult bookstore back home.
From Pericles to Petraeus, public figures have run afoul of sex. The only thing really surprising about the public reaction to the burgeoning sex scandal among top military leaders is the fact that people are surprised.
Measure B's aims, as delineated by its primary backer, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, are to protect adult video performers and prevent the spread of disease. Viewed myopically, Measure B may indeed seem like a step in that direction. The negatives outweigh the measure's benefits, however.
Measure B, an L.A. County ballot initiative that would require that condoms be used in porn films shot in the county, comes with a hefty price tag for taxpayers, is full of loopholes, is largely unenforceable and draws resources away from the communities that are most affected by HIV.
While I'm a strong advocate for safer sex and fair working conditions for sex workers, passing Measure B will not make workers safer nor will it help stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Here are some reasons why Measure B is a bad idea.
