This is not some obscure sex blog, either. (But so what if it was?)

Violet Blue is pissed off: This is not some obscure sex blog. Who has unashamedly, happily (even proudly) linked to Tiny Nibbles from a mainstream site?

Coded Language and Knowing Looks, Part 1

  A couple years ago we entered into a non-exclusive distribution arrangement with a fairly well-know company that specializes in placing sexually explicit films in mainstream markets.

Thank Heavens for Warm Praise (in a Cold World)

“Latent in every man is a venom of amazing bitterness, a black resentment; something that curses and loathes life, a feeling of being trapped, of having trusted and been fooled, of being the helpless prey of impotent rage, blind surrender, the victim of a savage, ruthless power that gives and takes away, enlists a man, [...]

Google’s No Fly List. How did we get on it? How do we get off?

[blowfish] is on it. [blowback] is not. [nina hartely] is on the list. [annie sprinkle] is not. [tony comstock] is on the Google “no fly” list. [peggy comstock] is not.

Gay Men Love Sucking Cock (Feminism and Pornography, Part 183)

Last Summer, while Peggy was on her way back from the Second Annual Feminist Porn Award, I started working on a post tentatively entitled “What Do Pornography and Feminism Have In Common, Part 3″. I started writing it because I was genuinely surprised that MATT AND KHYM received an award. The previous year we had [...]
