New hyperkinks! I haven't done one of these in a while. This edition is all about porn: performers (with a special showing from the Australian contingent), industry news, politics and good old smut.

Performers

 

Industry News

 

 

Porn Politics

  • What I Want to Know Is Why You Hate Porn Stars. This open-hearted, punchy article by a gay porn star hits whorephobia where it hurts. Compulsory reading for anyone who wants to have an opinion about porn or adult performers.
  • Porn, Women's Rights, and the Left - Jerry Barnett for Counterpunch on the London Stop Porn Culture protests and counter-protests in March.
  • Porn - a conversation. Six women discuss porn, the male gaze, the difference between fantasy and reality, and why out-takes and blooper reels are so important to separate the two. (For an example of how this works in practice, look no further than Dreams of Spanking.) Keep an eye out for uncritical use of the word "porn" in this discussion - porn is complicated and varied, and it's not usually possible to make generalisations about it.
  • Are we having porn now or what? Dr Jude Robert unpacks the difficulty of defining "porn"
  • Porn Studies: To accompany the Feminist Porn Book and Conference, there's a brand new academic journal of Porn Studies, and issue one is currently available for free download. Get it while you can!

 

Good old smut

  • How many times will this post make you go unfffff? Zoe Margolis: "It's wonderful to be able to look at men's bodies and see them portrayed in a beautiful way (and not as something to mock, or be repulsed by, which is often how men are portrayed in heterosexist media), but, more importantly, being able to see them as objects to *lust* over and enjoy without judgement. It's liberating."
  • The Dawn of Dusk - a new adult TV and VOD channel for women. Ms Naughty: "Theres such a huge variety of feminist and female-inclusive porn out there."
  • Strawberries and Cream - a rollicking piece of fanfiction inspired, apparently, by me, written in gloriously florid steampunk style, complete with corrupt priests, riding crops and arcane, sinister machines.
  • The Schoolgirl's Revenge - a dark and twisted new offering from Dreams of Spanking, featuring blackmail, forced gender-bending, harsh caning, and sweet, sadistic revenge.
