Gentleman Handling

Gentleman Handling

Gentleman Handling is a drippingly gorgeous website devoted to the artistic and erotic display of male masturbation. (Yea, I know “drippingly” isn’t an actual word, but that’s exactly how I’d describe something wet and poised with sexual anticipation. Feel me?) I’ll let the trailer speak for itself: From the about page: What we’ve made here,...

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: How to Come Out Like a Pornstar, the Book!

The ways in which we “come out” — or DON’T — say a lot about who we are, and how we are perceived. Responses paint a candid portrait of our family, friends and neighbors. Porn is not something many people openly talk about, often out of protection and privacy. Coming out can expose shame as...
Doing It Again: Support Tobi Hill-Meyer's New Trans Woman Porn Project

Doing It Again: Support Tobi Hill-Meyer’s New Trans Woman Porn Project

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Though he may have not been thinking about pornography when he said it, the message most definitely applies to sexual expression and visibility. It’s been my motto, in porn and otherwise — it’s a matter of being pro-active and creating positive...

Williams Queer Porn Recap

Last weekend I spoke at Williams College as part of the Mike Dively Committee Twentieth Anniversary Celebration, which is funded from an endowment intended “to develop an understanding of human sexuality and sexual orientation and their impact on culture.”
Feminist Porn Award Nominations 2012

Feminist Porn Award Nominations 2012

Feminist porn pioneer Annie Sprinkle once said: “The answer to bad porn is not no porn, but to try to make better porn!” And to this I would add: not necessarily “better” porn, but specifically, “MORE” porn. Because “better” is in the eye of the beholder, and given that all adults involved are legal and consenting, there’s...

Intersections of Erotic Performance Art & Pornography

Intersections of Erotic Performance Art & Pornography

I’m on the road again, this time headed to SXSW. It’s been a few years since I’ve attended the annual Music/Film/Tech conference, and so I was excited to be invited by Femina Potens to present at one of the special after events. The event will be a series of short presentations, followed by a panel...

2011 Year in Review

What an eventful year it’s been! 2011 was great for me. It was a year jam-packed with travel and fundraising, films and artful activism. Here’s a short recap, if that can even give it justice! Photo: Rae Threat/Fleshbot.com It pretty much started with Stoya and a shaved head, in bed. January was the 2011 AVN Awards...

2012 AVN Award Nominations

The 2012 AVN Award Nominations have been announced, but this year I’m not attending the event. I’ve been traveling so much in the recent months that I haven’t had a moment to go back home and visit my family. So I’m taking the opportunity to go back to Maui, and do all the things I’ve...

Berlin Porn Film Festival 2011

I’m excited to share that I’ll be attending the Berlin Porn Film Festival 2011 later this month — October 27th through the 30th. (The 30th is my birthday!) There’s a slew of amazing features and shorts; it’s really a great spread of work. Some featured artists include friends Tristan Taormino (check out her new Sex-Positive...

Karma Pervs in a Ghostly Shower for the LGBT Center

What is Karma Pervs? In a nutshell: It’s a porn fundraiser. I choose a charity each month – members see sexy photos for a good cause! I post a unique photo set of pictures related to the cause and at the end of the month 100% is donated to the organization. Sign up to support,...

5 Ways YOU Can Fight Porn Piracy

One of the biggest issues facing the adult industry is piracy. In the days of VHS and DVD, file sharing between fans meant burning a copy and hand-walking it over to your buddies. I had an old college friend tell me she was given an untitled disc from a pal of hers who said “this...

Safer Sex in Queer Porn and the Condom Debate

It’s late afternoon on a grey, overcast Monday in the SOMA district of San Francisco. For the last few months — and especially this weekend — I’ve been reading about changes happening in Los Angeles in the mainstream porn industry. I’d like to think there’s more difference between San Francisco’s little queer porn hub and...

J-Bird’s Queer Porn Story

I shot with J-Bird not too long ago on CrashPadSeries.com. I had such a fun, sweet time with him! J-Bird is a hot new genderqueer porn performer on the scene, and definitely a star to look out for. Check out our scene, and be sure to catch him on Twitter, Facebook, and his adorably awesome Youtube Channel. His illustrated queer...

100th Episode of CrashPadSeries.com… with Nina Hartley!

*pinches self* Nope, that didn’t work… *slaps self*… maybe better… maybe… How excited am I!? First of all, Nina Hartley — who many people may know from the film “Boogie Nights” and others may know and love from her countless sex ed videos (and of whom, many supported as she recovers from surgery) — recently inquired...
