With the growth of online niche porn, gay boys can now lust after men of all body types. We're in a pro-beard, anti-trim bubble right now for men, and I'm greatly enjoying it.
Clearly, our legal and policing systems have not kept up with the explosion of materials and the ease of access that modern electronic communications have provided to those with a predilection to abuse children.
We need to take a moment to reflect on the state of our laws around "sexting." And we need to consider the crazy mixed messages we are sending our teens about sexual behavior in our digital world.
I first met Madison Young when we performed together on the same bill at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco. I was immediately struck by the wonderful mass of contradictions. Smart but humble. Cute but fierce. Physical but articulate. Frankly, everything you'd want in a porn star.
If art is reactionary, and sex certainly causes a reaction, then is porn the most widely spread form of expressionism art in our modern world? Now with #ColbyDoesAmerica, Keller is taking his years blending these two forms of artistic expression into one, asking the question: can porn be art?
Many of the UK's Internet service providers (ISPs) turned on "porn filters" under the guise of protecting the "innocence of children," but as warned by opponents of Internet regulation, the filters are now blocking large amounts of clean content.
My intention here is not to present a case against porn, nor am I trying to change your mind. However, I will share what I've experienced since making the conscious decision to let porn go. The results have been noteworthy, which is why I feel compelled to share.
When I was 12 my parents had no idea how naughty I truly was. By day I was the perfect child -- an honor student, a weekend artist, a water-skiing aficionado -- but at night, when the adults weren't looking, I was a very bad boy.
Sexual harassment was the norm. Pornography was prolific and the giant blue and gold penis painted on a training facility could be seen from space. It finally took a bold whistleblower to come forward to reveal the misogyny and sexism that Capt. Gregory McWherter condoned and encouraged.
Is this the mainstreaming of gay porn? It depends on whether you think the fashion industry is influencing porn or vice versa. I think it's a little of both.
The prevalence of teens perusing porn sites should raise concerns for two reasons: recent research regarding porn and the brain, and a growing number of sexual-health experts and young men claiming that Internet porn is causing sexual dysfunctions.
I feel sexually safe every time I go to work. But California's A.B. 1576 is going to change that.
The bottom line is that we often seem to engage in simplistic and superficial soul searching and feel-good social media activity. The danger is that we really may not be taking much real-world action. And the clearly cathartic and therapeutic vigils and protests we now hold won't last long.
When a friend first told me that he follows a couple of gay porn stars on Twitter, that got me thinking about how many other guys do the same, so my team put together a list of the 15 most popular gay porn stars on Twitter, ranked by number of followers. Three things surprised us.
I believe you can change the world through sex. My team and I are working to make sex better for all of us and to provide a healthy, real-world counterpoint to the ubiquitous influence of porn. The world of business and tech is doing everything it possibly can to stop us.
