Frances Perraudin describes the rise of "social" porn - sites that allow users to upload, repost, and comment on each other's pornography - and why it's changing how we consume sexual media:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has written and directed a new movie, Don Jon, in which he also stars. After premiering at Sundance in January 2013 and set for wide release in October 2013, the trailer came out last month. I'm excited to see what Joe does with the topics of porn, fantasy, relationships.

I Think I'm Addicted to Masturbating

I have a serious problem with masturbation and sexual thoughts. I've had this for awhile for but I thought it was natural thing so I didn't give it much thought until recently. I masturbate several times a day every day. It's gotten to the point where I've skipped school just to stay home and masturbate for numerous hours at a time and I can't focus on anything because I constantly have sexual thoughts and fantasies.

I watched pornographic videos and images at school and even when i'm in a public place around a lot of people. It seems like it's the only thing I can really focus on. This has been going on since I was about 8. I'm 15 now and I'm wondering if I should see someone about it? What do you think?

Dear E,

The Shared Experience of Watching Sex (or Sexy Stuff)

The collective gasps, laughter, nods, and the rustling of audience members crossing and uncrossing their legs delight me. Attending something sexy, whether a film festival or a play or an event that is billed "sex-positive," inevitably has me smiling in appreciation at my fellow attendees. We are all there for the same reason: we are interested in sex.

In some circles, that's remarkable. Publicly admitting one is interested in sex - shocking! Or not. To me it feels like the most natural thing in the world.

Even in the Liberal State of California Sex Remains a Moral Flashpoint

There are a couple of amazing propositions that passed in California this Tuesday.

The first proposition requires condom use by adult film stars. Theoretically, it’s an awesome idea, and I’m all for it!

It offers the promise of more safety in the industry for performers, and more importantly, from a greater perspective, there is a potential for the porn industry to actually sexualize condom use.  Over time sexualizing condoms would insure greater use of condoms in the public at large. Obviously, It would also be good to help adult performers protect themselves from STI’s and pregnancies.

We Find Endless Fascination in Nakedness & Sex

Rick Santorum’s latest pronouncement is that porn must die. He believes there’s a pandemic of harm being suffered in America because of porn.

He has it ass backwards, but let me explain.

I’m a child of technology. Porn often drives the development of new technologies. It always has. If there were drawings or carvings, there was porn. When photography was invented, some of the very first photos were of sex. Same with motion pictures. Why? Because we are sexually social mammals. We find endless fascination in nakedness and sex.

We Share a Certain Understanding of How Our Cultures Repress the Sexuality of Women & Queers of All Genders

We're Emily and Ju, two new bloggers for the site who will be bringing you posts about a number of things, including genderqueer and trans identities, kink, porn, and the intersections between these things.

Though we have different identities and come from different cultural backgrounds, we both share a certain understanding of how our cultures repress the sexuality of women and queers of all genders. As such, we'll always try to bring a strong intersectional feminist analysis to our writings.

So you can get to know us a bit better, we'll take a moment to introduce ourselves individually !

Personal Thought On Porn

Just a few personal thought here, so please don’t shoot me
down in flames.  I see nothing
wrong in adult non-violent porn per se but I think it does often send out the
wrong signals:

 

It often suggests that most of us climax through constant
thrusting alone;

It can lead to suggest that we are expected to make very strange
noises during sex;

Condoms are rarely seen so the safe sex message is not there;

Lube is hardly ever seen to be used, even for anal suggesting
that it will just slide in;

Foreplay – what’s that?

Dear Dr. Betty,

My husband looks at beautiful women and porn a lot on the internet. We have a normal sex life. I'm 65 years old and attractive for my age and do just about everything sexual with him. He'll even look at women and porn after we have had sex. I'm insecure about this. I'm talking more than once a day. I told him I wouldn't spy on him any more but I can't help it!!

Dear Betty,

I recently found out that my husband has been using porn sites quite extensively. These sites appear to be about hooking up with sexually likeminded people, and his "profiles" state explicitly that he is looking for someone. I spoke to him about this, and he assures me that it is only fantasy, and that I shouldn't over analyze it.

My Wife Feels Guilty Looking at Porn

Dear Betty,

I love to look at porn. My wife likes to look at times too but feels guilty. We feel like it is a sin, but enjoy it so much. Do you think porn can ruin a marriage? If I look at porn I feel so guilty. I just love my wife and family so much. Sometimes when my wife finds out I look at porn she is so hurt. Why do men struggle with porn so much. I wish I could just not look at it. Do a lot of men struggle with this? -- J

Dear J,
