There are only 11 more days until it’s released (December 20th, 2013) and I haven’t been this excited for a non-porn movie‘s release since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. If Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale’s wig selection isn’t enough to get you excited about American Hustle then maybe you should know that sexy actresses Jennifer Lawrenceand Amy Adamsshare a passionate kiss at one point in the movie.

The belief is that Cameron Bay wouldn’t have contracted HIV if condoms were mandatory on porn shoots.
I’m not here to discuss whether or not condoms should be mandatory. If we were to talk about condoms in porn, I would say that Nina Hartley has it figured it out already. Nina opposes the mandatory condoms in porn, favouring a “condoms optional” policy.
“If a performer would feel more comfortable in a scene and therefore more free, I want them to be able to choose condoms without there being negative repercussions, vis-à-vis future employment by that company,” Hartley told XBIZ. “If a performer feels more comfortable not using condoms in a particular movie or with a particular partner, then the performer should not be required to use them because of company policy.”
Makes sense, right? The men and women in porn are using their bodies and they should be able to choose what happens with their bodies. Right?
But most of the porn industry continues to resist making condoms mandatory or even fully optional because they’re sure that porn fans don’t want to see condoms in porn movies.
Legendary pornographer Larry Flynt said, “The reason why we don’t demand they use condoms is because there’s no market for videos with condoms. For some reason they do not sell when condoms are used. It’s like masturbating with gloves on.”
I’ve heard this argument over and over again and I’ve always accepted it at face value. After all, they make, market, and distribute porn movies and they would know what sells. But that’s just not good enough anymore.
If we’re to believe that seeing condoms in porn is a problem for viewers, we need tangible evidence.
I see a lot of porn because I work for Sex.com and I have to admit that I don’t pay any attention to the dicks. No offense to the male pornstars of the world, but all the dicks in porn look the same: pretty big and veiny. That’s why I hardly even notice them anymore.
The dicks could have a condom on and I wouldn’t even notice. Therefore condoms in porn don’t affect my enjoyment of it.
That’s how I feel anyways.
But I need to know how valid the “people don’t like seeing condoms in porn”. So tell me…How do you feel about condoms in porn?
Thank you so much for voting! It’s a great help not only for this blog but also the industry as a whole.
There are few things worse as a music lover than going out with someone you like, having a great, getting an invite back to their place, and then… hen you get to their place…you see not only the entire Nickelback discography but Nickelback posters everywhere.
What the heck are you supposed to do once you’re hit with this revelation? Even though the date itself was good, you can’t possibly ever see them again because of their musical taste (which, if I’m being nice about it, is questionable at best).
Are music lovers doomed to make concessions to all their potential mates with terrible musical taste? Or perhaps die alone in a pile of records?
Now that Tastebuds.fm exists, music lovers don’t have to compromise their favorite artists for physical and emotional human love.
I’m sorry to say that it’s that time of year again.
We’ve barely recovered from our Christmas/New Year’s holiday bender and now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Yes, it’s that wonderful time of year where we are forced to buy discount chocolate, crappy cards, and lie through our teeth when we tell some poor sucker that we “love” them.
Frankly, we don’t care much for Valentine’s Day. With such a talented cast, director Garry Marshall could have done a lot more with the movie (we think). As for the holiday itself, don’t even get us started on our problems with Valentine’s Day.
Instead of a long-winded rant about Valentine’s Day (which may or may not be coming soon to The Sex.com Blog), we’d much rather know more about your feelings by having you answer a bunch of questions.
So please, be honest and vote in our Valentine’s Day poll extravaganza:
British conservative tabloid The Daily Mail reported today that that ChildLine, a free telephone counseling service for children and teens, has had a spike in calls for kids calling after seeing “disturbing” pornography online. They are up to about 50 calls a month on the subject.
ChildLine founder Esther Ratzen says that pornography is warping the minds of young people because they emulate the “disturbing” and “dangerous” behavior. This is precisely the reason why we have age restrictions on pornography. Even as a very sexually active adult I see things on the internet that I cannot possibly understand. However, because I am much, much smarter than a child or teenager I know not to mimic things that are strange and confusing to me.
Childline and National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) are both campaigning for better education on the dangers of pornography exposure to feeble, young minds (which is good and Sex.com fully supports that campaign). They are also working withThe Daily Mail to pressure the UK Government to introduce an automatic block on online pornography.
