Margaret Cho to Moderate #SexTalkTuesday on Monday, Jan. 5

Margaret Cho Sex Talk

CYBERSPACE—Comedian and actress Margaret Cho will be the special guest moderator of Twitter-based #SexTalkTuesday on Monday January 5 at 4:45 EST. “Margaret is in every way an ideal person to lead a #SexTalkTuesday discussion,” said Angie Rowntree, owner of Sssh.com and producer of #SexTalkTuesday. “She’s incredibly witty, candid, brave, outgoing and very experienced in speaking frankly about subjects a lot of other people would rather avoid.” According to the New York Times, “Margaret Cho has performed at Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall, and much of her comedy is so profanely unprintable that any attempt at paraphrasing would not do it justice. Starting in January, Ms. Cho will co-host a show on the TLC channel called “All About Sex,” [premieres Saturday January 10 at 11 p.m.] a title that conveys some of her brand of humor.”

An Age of Enlightenment Reminder: Porn Wasn’t Invented in the 20th Century

Erotic Art Louvre

As some of the most anti-porn critics tell the tale, it’s tempting to conclude that America was just walking along one day in the early 60s, minding its own very chaste and fundamentally decent Judeo-Christian business, when demon-possessed, raincoat-wearing sleazeballs like Reuben Sturman emerged like horny, four-legged fishmen from a primordial, wantonly sexual ooze, toting along with them sexually explicit short films originally created by suspicious, wild-bearded Italians like Lasse Braun. The truth is that porn goes back just a bit further than that – you know, roughly to the first time some pioneering pre-homo sapiens sapiens biped realized that he could scratch pictures into a rock using another rock? (Unfortunately, that quasi-simian visionary’s work was brutally panned by early critics, who complained that it objectified cavewomen, and lacked both artistry and taste, setting a pattern of critique that continues to dog pornographers to this day.)

Other Porn Critics Take Note: THIS is Reasonable Porn Criticism

Other Porn Critics Take Note: THIS is Reasonable Porn Criticism – Calico Rudasill, Sssh.com Porn For Women “Oh boy,” I thought when I read the headline. “Here comes a torrent of anguished, politically-correct nonsense I’ll soon regret having read in the first place.” The headline in question read: “Representation in porn, or a lack thereof, and why it matters.” One of my first thoughts was the word “doesn’t” was missing from it, but after reading the piece, I found it far more reasonable and measured than I expected. Sure, some of what I expected to find in the article, like concerns over whether porn performers accurately reflect demographics and physical traits of the general public, are indeed in there. What I found refreshing, though, was the very reasonable conclusion which followed Rebecca Vipond Brink’s analysis of porn performer demographics.

Sex Tape Movie – Et Tu, Hollywood?

Sex Tape Movie

Sex Tape Movie – Et Tu, Hollywood? - Calico Rudasill, Sssh.com Porn For Women.  “Piracy is not a victimless crime,” reads a warning screen displayed on the DVD before the featured program begins. It’s a damn good thing Sony Pictures reminded me of this fact up front – because you’d sure never know it from the contents movie on the other side of the warning. On its face, Sex Tape is a modern romantic comedy about the inevitable loss of passion that takes place over the course of a marriage. Steeped in comic cliché, the movie dispenses rapid-fire jokes covering everything from the spontaneous erections of youth and the awkward first meeting of your prospective spouse’s parents to pregnant sex and highly irritating, predictable “kids say the darndest things” moments in the car.
