Orlando Named Smuttiest City

This article in Men’s Health lists the smuttiest cities: Most porn films may be shot in the L.A. area, but their biggest audience is  in Orlando. We know what you’re thinking: How can the home of G-rated theme  parks be skin-flick central? It seems that while tourists line up at a  kid-friendly fantasy world, the […]

Feminist Porn Awards

I almost forgot. This past week was the Feminist Porn Awards. Welcome to feminist pornography, a genre of sex films designed to appeal to people who feel put off by mainstream porn. In the world of feminist porn, women come in all shapes, sizes, and sexual orientations. The actresses don’t necessarily conform to the typical […]

Porn Literacy

(Both proponents and opponents of online porn  have reasons to exaggerate.) One factoid making […]

Priest Accidentally Shows Gay Porn to Congregation

He connected his USB drive into a PC to start his Powerpoint presentation and, instead of the word of God, a hardcore gay porn slideshow started—thanks to […]
