50 Shades of Grey Bumps BDSM Porn Searches

23 03 2015

Something came across my radar today. 50 Shades of Grey caused a bump in searches on BDSM while surfing for porn according to Pornhub. Hardly surprising, but interesting to note.  That said, if you are looking for better BDSM art than you would find in the 50 Shades books or film, I would look at the 12 artists referred to in this article over in the Huffington Post.  Much more entertaining and thought provoking.

Secrets of the Cam Girls…

I normally don’t like to read Gizmodo. I find them a bit sensational for my taste. But every once and a while they post something unique and interesting. As I like to talk about sex and sexual thing here on HoV, I thought this story was very suitable. One of their reporters looked into the business of “Cam girls” and the girls who are behind the “Cams”.

 

If you think cam girls—those flirty naked characters that plague porn site pop-up ads—are raking in easy money, you’re right. If you think cam girls are bleakly stripping online out of desperation, you’re also right. Peel away the sex and pixels and money and you’re left with the cloudy truth about the Internet’s relationship status with these on-demand entertainers: it’s complicated.

I really think you should read the whole story: Indentured Servitude, Money Laundering, and Piles of Money: The Crazy Secrets of Internet Cam Girls (NSFW).

BDSM and Feminism

5 01 2009

BDSM often gets a bad rap from feminists, particularly male dominants and female submissives.  Browsing WordPress today, I found an interesting article (through Feminist Philosophers) on Feminism and BDSM (link here).

It’s taken me many years of unlearning mainstream power dynamics to understand and accept my own desire for fictional, fetishized ones. Despite this deliberate journey of self-discovery and the accompanying (and perhaps contradictory) feelings of being in total control, it’s pretty evident that the feminist movement at large is not really ready to admit that women who like to be hit, choked, tied up and humiliated are empowered. Personally, the more I submitted sexually, the more I was able to be autonomous in my external life, the more I was able to achieve equality in my sexual and romantic partnerships, and the more genuine I felt as a human being. Regardless, I always felt that by claiming submissive status I was being highlighted as part of a social dynamic that sought to violate all women. Sadly, claims of sexual emancipation do not translate into acceptance for submissives — the best a submissive can hope for is to be labeled and condescended to as a damaged victim choosing submission as a way of healing from or processing past trauma and abuse.

Let me know what you think of it, in the comments.

A site for your more prurient needs

29 04 2008

Alright, I like a good porn story.  And I like a free story even better.  The Alt.Sex.Stories Text Repository is a wonderful place I have been going to for years. I highly recommend it. There are almost always new posts every day. While the writing isn’t always the highest quality (and some of the stories frankly squick me), there is bound to be one there in the for over a decade’s worth of stories they have collected (they have some particularly good hardcore BDSM stuff there).  Check it out. Maybe even write your own.
