Anti-Gay Texas DA Resigns in Scandal

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Here is another one of those stories that you wouldn’t believe except that you expected it all along. The Texas District Attorney who argued that gays have no right to privacy in their own bedrooms had to resign amid a growing scandal involving racism and sex. Here is a little bit of the article from AVN about the situation:

Rosenthal had also retained sexually-explicit video clips and love notes to his secretary (who’d been his mistress during his previous marriage) in his “saved” mail.

And a quote from his arguments before the Supreme Court:

…there is no protected right to engage in extrasexual — extramarital sexual relations…

You can check out the full article to see the rest of the details. Let’s just say that “hypocrite” isn’t a strong enough word for this guy.

Testosterone, French Ero, & David Lynch’s Foot Fetish

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

Just posting links to three articles from the last week that I thought were interesting:

First, the Wall Street Journal has an article about testosterone levels in men. The article is mostly about the dangers of low testosterone levels as men age. But the article also talks about studies that show a relationship between marriage and testosterone levels in men. It breaks down like this:

  • Most Testosterone: Single men.
  • Less Testosterone: Married men.
  • Least Testosterone: Married men, with multiple wives.

I’m not sure exactly what it all means, but it must have some implications for the sex lives of married couples? Check out the full article for more info.

Second, the New York Times has an article called “A Library Exhibition Not for the Children’s Room” about an erotic show now on at the National Library of France in Paris. The show includes over 350 sexually explicit literary works, manuscripts, engravings, lithographs, photographs, film clips, and other items. Included is the handwritten manuscript of the Marquis de Sade’s novel “Les Infortunes de la Vertu”. According the article,

Sadism, masochism, bestiality, inflated genitalia and the most imaginative sexual fantasies and athletic poses are given their due. To avoid complaints that a publicly supported institution is corrupting the country’s youth, no one under 16 is admitted.

The “Hell at the Library, Eros in Secret” show runs through March 22, 2008. If you’re in Paris before then, it might be worth checking out. I can’t imagine my local library doing a similar show anytime soon.

Third, I read about this erotic art show called “Fetish” featuring the photography of director David Lynch. The show is a collaboration between Lynch and fashion designer Christian Louboutin. Louboutin created some one-of-a-kind exotic shoes for the models and Lynch took pictures of them wearing the shoes, but otherwise nude. The show had already closed by the time I saw the article, but you can still see some images at the website of Galerie du passage in Paris. For larger pictures from the Lynch photo show, try this link (the site isn’t in English, but just click on the numbers to see more pics.)

That’s all for now. More updates later!

The Rise of the MILF Fantasy

Friday, December 28th, 2007

The Village Voice has an interesting article from a few weeks ago called “The Rise of MILFs and Mommies in Sexual-Fantasy Material”. In the article, the author charts the rise of the MILF (Mother’s I’d Like to Fuck) phenomenon from it’s explosion in popular culture after the American Pie movies, right up until the present, where MILF porn has become a big industry:

On the Adult Video News bestselling DVD chart for October 2007, there are 13 MILF movies, including It’s a Mommy Thing; Wife, Mother, Whore; and I Scored a Soccer Mom 2. They make up less than 15 percent of the titles listed, but in such a crowded field, that is significant. In fact, now devotes an entire monthly sales chart just to MILF titles.

But, the author goes beyond the MILF porn movies, MILF sex stories, and other obviously popular stuff and asks the question – “Does the rise of the MILF mean that people are ready to accept Mommy as an equal sexual fantasy to Daddy?”

In s&m, queer culture, and fantasy role-play, “Daddy” is one of the most popular archetypes around. Search queer or kinky personals for the word daddy, and you’ll have plenty of potential dates to choose from. There’s a level of comfort and familiarity with daddy play, which is not so much about eroticizing incest as it is creating a specific kind of dominant/submissive dynamic, where “masters” are drill sergeants and “daddies” are loving mentors. There are way more self-identified daddies—both male and female—than mommies in those communities. Why?

I’m not sure that I agree with all of the conclusion – or at least speculation – that the author presents, but it’s certainly interesting to ponder. When Literotica started, many years ago now, the MILF meme did not exist. There were already age-gap stories, and Aunt Peg, and teacher/student stories, etc. But when the word “MILF” hit, it set off a new wave of interest in women who were still super sexy, but no longer “Barely Legal”. On Literotica today, there are more than 1500 stories with the exact word “MILF” as a Story Tag, and far more than that which are related in some way to the MILF fantasy.

You can read the full article at the Village Voice Website. Enjoy!

Happy Merry Christmas 2007

Tuesday, December 25th, 2007

Dear friends,

I hope that you all have a great Christmas. May you get whatever gifts you asked for from Santa! :)

This time of year always leads to reflection on the last 12 months. When I look back on recent history in regards to Literotica, there have been a lot of big changes, though many of them may not be obvious yet to all of you. We have been working very hard for a long time on modernizing the site. In 2008, you should see a lot more of the results of all of the stuff we worked on in 2007. The bottom line is that, as I look back, 2007 was a good year for me and for Lit and I hope the same is true for you.

Maybe I’ll post some more “looking back” or “looking forward” posts next week when I have to face that fact that the year really is over.

Take care everyone, and thank you for all of your friendship and feedback and funness in the last year! :)

Zoey Zane – Missing Student Had Had Secret Porn Career

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

One of the top stories on many of the big news websites right now is about a college student named Emily Sander who, like some other adult website models, kept her porn career hidden from most of her friends and family. The 18 year old Sanders was allegedly also known as Zoey Zane, an amateur teen porn model with a website featuring nude pictures and videos. Unfortunately, her secret has been exposed because Emily Sander has gone missing under some very suspicious circumstances:

Emily Sander (aka Zoey Zane) was last seen leaving a bar in El Dorado, about 30 miles from Wichita, with a man identified as Israel Mireles. Sander and Mireles had met that night at the bar. His motel room was found to appear in great disarray, and a large quantity of blood was found in the room.

There is a nationwide manhunt going on for 24 year old Israel Mireles and his 16 year old girlfriend Victoria Martens. If you think you might have any information useful to police, you can contact the National Center for Missing Children.

Emily Sander’s disappearance itself doesn’t, so far, seem like it’s related to her porn career, but the media will take any opportunity they can get to link porn to bad news, so that’s the sensational headline of many of the stories about her right now.

The story does bring up one point that seems lost on some adult internet models (and other people) until it’s too late. If you post naked pictures or nude videos of yourself online, eventually someone (or more likely everyone) you know is going to find out. In this case, the secret was exposed by a horrible turn of events, but even if nothing had happened to Sander, it’s likely that one of her jealous friends, ex-boyfriends, personal enemies, or any number of other people would have eventually found the pictures and started telling others about them. It’s almost impossible to hide that sort of thing from everyone around you. (Look at all of the celebrity sex videos out there to see how hard it is to keep sex a secret!) In fact, if you read some of the news stories on this case, it seems that Sander recently told her boyfriend about her adult modeling career and he broke up with her as a result.

In case you are curious, below are some links to pictures of Zoey Zane from her adult modeling website. Be warned that the pictures do contain nudity (of course) and I have no relationship with the websites listed, so visit at your own risk.

I may post more updates on this story later if anything interesting shows up in the news. Hopefully, it will have a happy ending, but it doesn’t sound very likely at this point.

Update: I was reading a few blogs about this case and there are a couple of other things I wanted to mention.

1. Emily Sander’s body has been found. There will be no happy ending to this story. :(

2. According to adult industry press, this girl was not a pornstar, just a nude model. That means she didn’t have sex with people on camera, she just posed for solo nude pictures and maybe the occasional girl-girl pictures for her website. Maybe it’s still porn to some people, but there seems to be a line drawn by many girls at hardcore and this girl chose not to cross that line. Perhaps none of that matters much anymore, but I wanted to make it clear as it seems important to some of the people who knew her.

BDSM Website Raided By Police

Tuesday, December 20th, 2005

Another adult website raid:

Police are investigating a local woman who produced bondage and domination videos at her home and then sold memberships to customers who watched them on her website.

Sferrazza said investigators seized computers along with a number of other items, which he would not specify.

She has not been charged with any crime yet, but this will be another one to keep an eye on. The list keeps growing. :(

Inventor Of Video Rentals Dies

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005

Just a quick link to an interesting story from the New York Times:

George Atkinson, who helped popularize home viewing of Hollywood films by opening the first video rental store in 1979, died on Thursday at his home in Northridge, Calif. He was 69.

When Hollywood executives began making feature-length films available on video in the 1970′s, they charged $50 each and envisioned affluent consumers building large libraries, just as they did with records. Mr. Atkinson, a onetime stuntman and occasional actor, saw things differently.

To start his rental business, Mr. Atkinson bought 50 movies that had recently been made available on video, including “The French Connection,” “The Sound of Music” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” He then advertised their availability for rental in a one-inch ad in The Los Angeles Times.

Customers arrived in droves and willingly paid the $10-a-day rental fee. (Only the wealthy could afford the $1,000 that VCR’s cost then.)

Renting videos and DVDs is not something I ever thought about someone having to “invent”, but apparently this guy did it. He may be dead, but his legacy will live on.

Ebay Auction For Michael Jackson’s Wedding Ring

Tuesday, March 8th, 2005

If you are getting married anytime soon, you might want to consider buying this ring for your wife-to-be. There is nothing that says love like buying a ring on Ebay from some woman who used to be married to Michael Jackson and who is now supposedly testifying against him in a court case where he is accused of abusing kids. What could possibly impress a woman more than that?

The auction appears to be off to a rocky start, with lots of fake bidders and people who just want to kiss ass to some woman who was once married to a celebrity. If you have time to waste, check out the link to the auction “questions” page. Most of the questions read something like this, “Debbie, I just want to say, you are my idol! You were great for standing by that angel Michael!” Or this, “Debbie, you are my idol! You are great for standing up to that pig Michael!”

It’s like the Jerry Springer show live on Ebay. Check it out.

Cute Protester Girl In South America

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2004

I usually don’t post political stuff, but it is Super Tuesday so I couldn’t resist posting this picture I found on Yahoo:

Venezuela Girl

An opponent of President Hugo Chavez’s government fires stones with a slingshot during a demostration in Caracas.

I’m not sure why South American politics suddenly seemed so interesting – I might have to do some more research.

More soon!
