Editor’s Pick
Ophoria Pleasure #6 by Wendy Blackheart
“Well fuck me in the ass.
No really. That’s what I did as soon as I got this toy out of the package!”
Note: How could I resist picking a toy called Pleasure #6 for Pleasurists #6? But more than that, this review made me want to own an Ophoria Pleasure #6, which is the highest criteria for my weekly pick.

Paper Publishing

I want to do a zine. The desire to self-publish has been with me for as long as I can remember. In 5th grade my friend Chris and I decided we were going to write a magazine about Greek mythology. We started on one issue, but no one wanted to subscribe to it, so we quit. I’ve only done two zines in my adult life, but they didn’t amount to much. The first was just a collection of news about various injustices that I’d give away at shows. The second was a collection of erotica I’d written, but I hardly sent any out, just one to a friend I’d met on LJ.

And the desire continues, so now I’d like your help in putting one together. I’m asking you to contribute to my effort by writing about your earliest remembered sexual fantasy and sending it to me for publication. It can be as short or as long as you’d like. It can be explicit or full of youthful innocence. It can be whatever you want it to be, just tell me about your early sexual self explorations.

If you want to participate (and you are at least 18 years old, which you’d damn well better be if you’re reading this site), send your writings to gabe at pornocracy dot org or comment with them here. If I get enough to fill a few pages, I’ll put together a half-size zine.

The Pleasurists

My previous post reviewing the Hitachi Magic Wand has been reposted in the most recent Pleasurists Round-Up.

Pleasurists is a weekly round-up of sex posts specifically reviewing various adult products. I find that hearing about others’ experiences with toys serves multiple purposes: I get a wide variety of opinions on products I may buy, I get educated on the diversity of sexual responses bodies have to various stimuli, and it’s just plain hot. There’s some great information to be had here, so be sure and subscribe to this wonderful resource.

Finding connections

I wonder if others would find it odd that my attitudes toward sex work often relate to my experiences as a janitor. I’ve drawn parallels before between people saying that prostitutes sell their bodies and the wear and tear on my own body doing manual labor. Mine was my back, not my dick, but so what. Earlier today I was talking with the woman that cleans the building where I work. We’ve had big events in here the last couple of days, one of which brought the campus bigwigs over to our humble facility. Because of these, she’s been busting her ass not only getting the place clean, but dealing with authority figures constantly sticking their noses in to tell her what hasn’t been done right. I told her that the college where I worked that we weren’t even supposed to be seen if there was something like a board meeting going on. Oh, we had to have the place spotless for the bigwigs, but god forbid they have to actually see the poor people who wipe their asses for them.

So then this afternoon, with this still on my mind, Ren writes this:

Prop K did not making trafficking legal. Prop K did not make the sexual abuse, rape, or exploitation of minors legal. Those things are and would have remained illegal. Prop K would not have ended sex worker outreach or exit programs. Yet those were the arguments you used to shoot down Prop K. You worried about your precious neighborhoods, which apparently mean more to you than the lives of sex workers and prostituted people. You used the lives and stories of the very people you then threw to the lions to make your case and defeat something that would have meant so much to all of us, even those of us who live in places where things like Prop K are just a fanciful dream.

Your exit programs and assistance- for those who even want such things- includes arrests, jail time and criminal records, which are so helpful when trying to find a legitimate job. Your concern includes relegating these people to the shadows, after all, if you don’t see them in your little neighborhoods they don’t exist, right? Your vote has insured these people do not have the same rights and protections that you do; they do not have the same status as human beings as you do.

Yeah, my experiences didn’t involve the same level of danger or of dehumanization. But I know all about being told you don’t matter. I know about being forced into invisibility until someone wants something from you. Why does this matter so much to me? Because if those experiences affected me so much without the threat of attack, or rape and murder, then how much more so can they affect those who San Francisco just threw under a bus in the name of property values?

MonoPoly – The New FetLife Group!

Those who hang out at the BDSM lifestyle community FetLife – especially those who frequent any of the (segregated) poly and mono communities – might know that there was some cross-conversation happening there recently between those camps. While asking questions of each other and getting answers from the horse’s mouth can be a great thing, the tone was pretty adversarial most of the time. Nevertheless, some of us who value and live in the space that connects mono and poly found unexpected allies and comrades popping up.

So, time for a new space to hang out! If you’re on Fetlife and the description below interests you, get in on the ground floor of this exciting endeavor. 🙂

MonoPoly – The New Game!
Do you frequent the space between mono and poly? Are you poly with mono partners or mono with a poly partner? Do you identify as somewhere in the middle? Interested in learning and exploring this uncharted territory? This is a space for those who desire to strengthen the bonds between people of various relational or commitment orientations and make connections across that spectrum.

Have I Mentioned I Luuurrve Me Some Burlesque?

Ahhh, the sequins and shiny fabric I would never wear in any other circumstance. The old school high heels. The yummy curves of a boob with the nipple hidden away in plain sight. The smiles, the humor, the fun. I heart burlesque. A lot.

That’s why this calendar looks positively delicious.

The New York City Sexbloggers 2009 Calendar will benefit Audacia Ray’s Sex Work Awareness Project, and will provide you with much gorgeous eye candy. If you’d like to buy a day, head to the calendar link and take a look. You could name your blog! Or give a personal message to commemorate the day! Lots of possibilities. And don’t forget to buy yourself a copy of the calendar. This promises to be a fabulous set of photos.

Waterproof Vibrator Sale!

Don’t miss Babeland’s limited-time sale on some of their waterproof vibrators!

 
“I Rub My Ducky” is a longtime favorite vibe of mine – so much so, that he started me on a small but steadily growing collection of duckies with magical powers. The very chic Paris Duckies are now several dollars off, and available in pink or black. The one speed duckies have a great, rubbery feel, with a large head and a pokey little tail at a lovely distance from one another for combo clit stimulation/shallow vaginal penetration.

The Waterdancer has been on my list a while, and may become mine on payday. The aquatic version of the Pocket Rocket gets great reviews, is small and easy to travel with, and I expect it would make a lovely addition to any hotel shower.

Also on sale is Violet Blue’s book, The Adventurous Couple’s Guide to Sex Toys. She’s good people, folks.
