Porn Sex VS Real Sex

An amusing but well-done video explains the difference between porn sex and real sex, using food to illustrate the points.

Behind the scenes of the first Google Glass porn video

On set, Deen told me he had first heard about Glass while channel surfing on a plane when a segment on CNN about Google’s attempts to block porn on the device caught his attention. “Immediately after hearing about it, I was like ‘I want to play with it.’”

And play with it he did. Deen donned my charcoal glass, San Dimas wore Dr. Cockles’ blue pair, and the two received training and tips on ways the Glass could theoretically be used during sex from the MiKandi team and myself. At one point Deen managed to toggle my Glass off of “Guest Mode” and would have Tweeted an illicit picture to my account if the WiFi was on. He endearingly feigned technological confusion, but it was obvious he’d seen his share of recording equipment and was soon calling the shots and coordinating the action with San Dimas, cracking Glass jokes in between takes.

View a clip of the first Google Glass Porno video

As a follow-up to yesterday’s blog post on Google Glass porn; here’s a NSFW clip excerpt of that first Glass porn for your viewing entertainment!

While the trailer is definitely racy, it’s far from crude. The actors crack jokes about Glass (“Hey, I really like your Glass”) and play around with its various features. At one point, Deen notices San Dimas’ shoes, proceeds to find them online using Glass, proclaiming she overpaid for them.

Google Glass and First Person POV Porn

Google Glass Porno

Earlier this year, after Google announced Google Glass, a porn company called MiKandi immediately released the first porn app for Glass. Called Tits & Glass, it was the Instagram of homemade porn, allowing Glass users to shoot, share, and vote on porn videos. Immediately afterward, Google decreed that no porn apps will be allowed to run on its Glass eyewear, and MiKandi was forced to pull the app. Now the company is trying again–and there are implications for everyone.

Thought-provoking gender-swapped version of “Blurred Lines” music video

There’s been a lot of controversy over the misogynistic video of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. It has been blasted by critics as being disparaging to women.

Luckily for us, an awesome parody has been created by Mod Carousel, a Seattle-based Boylesque troup, and features new tweaked lyrics, new male models and new props.

Mod Carousel addresses some of its own concerns with the original “Blurred Lines” video:

“It’s our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and does everyone a disservice,” the group explains. “We made this video specifically to show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.”

Here is the original unrated version of “Blurred Lines”, for comparison:

Dustin Hoffman on Tootsie and Gender Expectations

A brief but incredibly touching commentary by Dustin Hoffman on gender expectations and how they can affect us, and those around us. Definitely worth the 3 minutes it takes to watch it.

I love how emotional he gets about this topic at the end of the video…

Kosher Climax?

Rabbis have rarely generated so much excitement. At least not in the bedroom. For the first time, Orthodox Jews can buy sexual lubricants that have been declared kosher, and with Tu B’Av, the Jewish Valentine’s Day, fast approaching, kosher romantics have some new options thanks to Trigg Labs, which announced this week that its line of Wet personal lubricants and intimacy products are now kosher.

As with many great innovations, the lubricant resulted from personal motivation. Sean Smith, president of Trigg Laboratories, which produces Wet, converted to Judaism after marrying a Jewish-Israeli woman.

But what’s the need for a kosher lubricant? Orthodox Jews spread all sorts of cosmetics over their bodies without checking they are kosher. From soaps to exfoliators, moisturisers to medical ointments, observant Jews can use whatever is sold on the mainstream market without checking its origins. Kosher laws don’t apply to products for external use. In fact, according to guidelines by the respected kashrut certifier Star-K: “one may even apply non-kosher ingredients to one’s lips, eg lipstick, lip balm.”

The bottom line is that kosher certification is only relevant to Jews who swallow a product. Really, it’s only necessary for the God-fearing who intentionally swallow it – but some strict observers go further and buy kosher products if there is a risk of accidentally swallowing them.

So although Orthodox Jews haven’t been waiting for the rabbinic nod before using lubes, they have been limited in what they could do with them.

For hundreds of years the Jewish religious establishment has been divided on whether oral sex is allowed as part of a bedroom repertoire; it’s still pretty taboo for public discourse – and the rabbis who have approved the lubes haven’t spelled out whom their certification will benefit. But among Orthodox Jews the significance is clear – 14 years after Rabbi Shmuley Boteach struck a blow for openness by publishing his hit book Kosher Sex this is the first rabbinic innovation to help kosher oral sex. In eight flavours.
