Now I'm pregnant, I wanted to talk about the complexities of being trans, non-binary, and having a big bump - not to mention a bigger chest... As if that wasn't complicated enough, I'm also a sex worker. I couldn't find many resources about being non-binary and pregnant, never mind a non-binary pregnant sex worker, so I thought I'd put something out there. Well, I don't know if I can call this a "resource", it's mostly me talking about why things are VERY CONFUSING in my head right now, but if you're in the same situation hopefully it'll show you're not alone (hiiii) and if you're not trans or not pregnant, maybe it will give you a bit of an insight into what it's like.
If you're in London, the best way to answer this question is to attend Skeptics in the Pub next Monday, at The Monarch in Camden.
Obscenity Lawyer Myles Jackman asks what the truth behind age verification is by exposing the arguments, history and impacts of balancing child protection against adult free speech and privacy rights.
The Digital Economy Act 2017, which comes into force this March, will compel adult pornography websites in the UK to verify that their users are over the age of 18. This measure was predicated on the assumption that it would prevent under 18’s being “harmed” by pornography; yet has potentially disastrous unintended consequences for adult privacy and the free speech ecosystem.
I've got some big news to share... I'm pregnant, and I couldn't be happier about it!
I'm 16 weeks pregnant with a small but already visible bump; the above photo was taken a few days ago. My baby is due in July and I'm ridiculously excited! It's the biggest adventure I've ever been on, and my partner and I are thrilled as we get ready for this next phase of our lives.
Is it really nearly that time already? I had an incredible time at the London Porn Film Festival last year. I discovered hot new porn, hung out with delightful porn friends, recorded a podcast and faced my fears in screening a 90 minute retrospective of my work, which was simultaneously wonderful and terrifying. The submission deadline has rolled around again, and if you haven't yet got your films in, you have until this Sunday, 20th January.
This year, the festival are particularly seeking films by and about sex workers; non-western centred films; documentaries; political porn; animations; and archival work.
In this year when age verification is being implemented, political porn is more important than ever. LPFF wants to show even more, and resist even more, at this year's festival.
Hi friends! I'm taking part in the 2019 ManyVids awards, and voting ends this Saturday 19th Jan at 10pm EST - which means there are three days left to cast your votes.
I'm running for Fetish Star of the Year. I'm a newcomer to ManyVids but I'm already in the top 50! Can you get me even higher?
You can cast a new free vote every day, and I'm offering super discounted deals on videos and other goodies to reward all paid votes! Today I've decided to treat you with an exclusive preview of my brand new schoolgirl caning film - which has never before been published anywhere, so this is the only way to get to see this film! It's over 9 minutes long, and features me as a naughty schoolgirl punished with six cold, hard cane strokes on the bare bottom by the headteacher...
It's the third Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for my monthly Ask Me Anything video chat! This takes place between 7-8pm on Google Hangouts, and is a space where I can shoot the breeze with members of my community, answer questions, share exclusive news about projects I'm working on and campaigning I'm doing (sometimes long before I get around to typing a blogpost about it) and really just talk about anything we feel like. It's open to members of my Patreon campaign pledging $50/month, and it's a great opportunity to get some facetime with me (even when I'm feeling too tired to leave the house!).
I really enjoy these chats - it's great to get to know the people who share my values and whose political goals are aligned with mine, and I find their questions and perspective really valuable.
Happy 2019! I'm thrilled to annouce that Felix and I will once again be facilitating a consent workshop in London later this month. This is another opportunity to participate in the sold-out workshop we held in October, which we are running again due to popular demand.
Here's what attendees from our previous workshop had to say about it:
He explains why the April 2019 deadline for enforcement is so rushed as to preclude any sensible security consultation, and gives a good analysis of the deficiencies of the proposed data security mechanisms for AV with reference to the benchmark provided by credit card security standards.
I'm proud to publish this online version of our consent leaflet, Getting and Giving What We Want.
This is a condensed version of some of the things we cover our consent workshop Getting and Giving What We Want, produced by Backlash. We are running another workshop in January so keep an eye out for details! My co-facilitator Felix and I had a fun challenge cutting the techniques that we teach in the workshop down to a suitable length. As we were going through the material we initially felt that it was all so important we couldn't cut any of it. It was an informative exercise to ask ourselves, out of all of this crucial information, what is absolutely most important? - and this is what we came up with.
