    VICE Predicts New Direction for Porn With Audio-Only Version

    Social Media Sites Such as Tumblr, Reddit Now Feature Wealth of Audio Erotica 

    AVN News editor MIchael French shares the highlights from a recent post on Vice.com on Audio Erotica.

    Via AVN.com:

    Social media sites that permit erotic content, such as Tumblr and Reddit, have become treasure troves of a newly popular genre of porn—audio-only porn, according to a report this week by the site VICE.com, which describes the form as a “guilt-free route to orgasm that doesn’t come with a monthly subscription,” for people who still experience reservations or inhibitions about consuming porn in the more traditional way, visually. 

    “If you swoon over a good phone voice and like a bit of dirty talk, then audio porn is just the ticket,” writes journalist Megan Wallace, in the VICE article. “From audio clips of couples getting nasty, to longer erotic narratives, to ASMR, audio porn has no singular definition—as long as it’s sound-only.” 

    Wallace goes to reccommend her own favorite audio porn sources. 

    “It’s not necessarily a recent invention (I mean, let’s not forget that sex chatlines are a thing) but the way that its spread across pockets of the internet feels fresh, exciting and full of promise,” Wallace writes. “Springing up a couple of years ago across platforms like Tumblr and Reddit, audio-only porn has fostered a vibrant online community.” 

    She goes on to point readers to the Tumblr page Audible Porn, as well as the Reddit forums Pillow Talk Audio,  and Gone Wild Audio.  

    Among the descriptions of audio erotica files in the latter forum: Cosplay Cutie Hidden Slut, Humiliation for Pleasure, A Little Pressure [prostate massage], and Hey Babe, Wanna Fuck my Mom?  

    “Working on a submissions basis, these pages are fed X-rated sound bytes by followers who generously share their own intimate moments, as well as listening to others’,” Wallace explains. “It’s a community-driven genre where there’s currently no money at stake: just genuine sexual enthusiasm.” 

    Though Wallace and er interview subjects praises audio porn for “the way it democratizes porn-making, “ she also predicts that it won’t be long before the for-profit adult industry catches to what remains currently an internet underground phenomenon. 

    “There’s little doubt that the big boys of porn will soon find some way to get in on the action, we can only hope that these tight-knit communities will find a way to weather the storm and keep audio porn’s indie spirit alive,” Wallace writes.

  2. PrEP and U=U: Two Sides of the Same Bed

    PrEP and U=U: Two Sides of the Same Bed

    This great post titled "Two Sides of the Same Bed," from smart UK blog Mainly Male, looks at how HIV prevention is handled with PREP in an HIV+/HIV- relationship.

    Jason and Hans frank and honest conversation is both frank and informative.

    “I sometimes lied about my status when a hook-up asked, because I feared rejection. I told them that I was ‘negative’ but wanted to use a condom.” – Hans

    “Once negative people are on PrEP they may not think about their partner’s status at all. After I started daily PrEP in 2015 I saw no need to talk about HIV with partners, unless they wanted to.” – Jason

    For guys--or anyone, honestly--who are in or worry about how the dynamic of a relatshionship could change in a similar situation, the short post is well worth taking the the time to read.

    Meet Leonor Fini, Argentinian artist known for her depictions of powerful women

    For those lucky enought to live in or be visiting the New York City area, check out the new Leonor Fini exhibiton at the city's Museum of Sex.

    Titled "Leonor Fini: Theater of Desire, 1930-1990" and running September 28, 2018 – March 4, 2019, the exhibiton contains pantings, designs and illustrations by the prolific artist.

    Leonor Fini - Museum of Sex exhibitionLeonor Fini - Museum of Sex exhibition

    “I always imagined that I would have a life very different than the one imagined for me, but I understood from a very early age that I would have to revolt in order to make that life.” – Leonor Fini

    From the Museum of Sex webpage on the exhibition:

    The Museum of Sex (MoSEX) presents Leonor Fini: Theatre of Desire, 1930-1990, the first American museum survey of the work of Argentine-Italian artist Leonor Fini (b. 1907, Buenos Aires, Argentina–d. 1996, Paris, France). The exhibition will immerse visitors in Leonor Fini’s life and career from the 1930s to the 1980s. Although Fini exhibited in major Surrealist surveys throughout the 1930s and 40s, and counted Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí as friends, she rejected the invitation to officially join the group, disavowing movement leader André Breton’s traditional view of woman as muse.

    Multi-talented and fearlessly forward thinking, she refused to be categorized in any way, especially through gender norms. Her art explored the masculine and feminine, dominance and submission, eroticism and humor. She also went beyond the medium of painting to embrace theatre, ballet, the illustrated book and costume. She not only rejected tradition and social conventions, she insisted that identity, like artistic expression, is never fixed – it must constantly be open to inspiration and imagination.

  7. When Good Sex Begets Bad Sex

    When Good Sex Begets Bad Sex

    In case you missed it, the fourth single from electroduo Fisherspooner's album "SIR"--"TopBrazil," originally released back in January, is about "the dark side of sexual compulsion and the internet."

    Left, "SIR" album cover. Right, "SIR" album cover as displayed at the album premiere at The Guggenheim Museum in April 2018.

    "Specifically," says Casey Fischer, "it’s about an experience I had in Rome with a super hot Roman college student who snuck me into his home while his parents were sleeping and we had this amazing awesome epic incredible illicit night of sex."

    "And the next day I got greedy and thirsty and hungry and I wanted it again, but with another person. So I went and I hooked up with this guy and his profile name was TopBrazil—and it was a nightmare."

    "He was an awful person, he was weird and awkward and rude. The whole experience was terrible. I don’t know why I stayed and I don’t know why I went through with it."

    "SIR" was produced by Spooner's boyfriend, Michael Stipe of REM. The album, which celebrates sex, queerdom and old school gay decadence, was written for Spooner's "queer family and our special kind of love" and a "statement against the current anti-gay Neo-nazi presidency."

    Rachael McCoy of Inspiring Sexuality at XBIZ 2016 UK

    About the Fat Boy Sport, Rachael says,

    “We both actually loved it!”  

    “Even though it was a bit naughty that my man’s cock was so massive, it felt really, really good!”  

    "All in all I think this a great product and it might not be something that you’d originally go for,  but I really enjoyed it, so I highly recommend."

    In additional to being fun to use with your partner, Rachael, being the thorough and inquisitive reviewer that she is, discovered to her pleasure that the Fat Boy Sport is great solo!

    Ladies, watch the video to learn how Rachael turned the Fat Boy Sport into a masturbator that “wasn’t like the standard vibrator or a big hard thing, it has a soft squidgy texture, which made you feel full, which was a completely different sensation, which I really liked.”

    Gio Black Peter (Giovanni Andrade Paolo Guevara, born 1979 in Guatemala) is a New York-based performance artist as well as an ardent visual artist. He examines text and subject, truth and fakery, rebellion and authority.

    His subversive work has quickly earned him a name in the downtown New York scene of young emerging artists who participate in today's dialogue about the deconstruction of high profile, white box presentation and the desire to raise art awareness.
