China: Anti Porn, Anti Choice, Anti You

Make no mistake my dear friends, China doesn’t like you.

I say you, as I imagine I am most likely preaching to the choir, as whoever reads my article will most likely be of an open mind and or producing some adult videos of their own.

China had decided that it’s citizens should not have the ability to view any adult media in their country on “their” browsers and computers. China had tried to maintain its wholly imagined squeaky clean image by taking a stand against porn. A totalitarian regime is never satisfied until it has consolidated all the power available to it. And, China’s leaders sure would love to tout this feather in their cap. It would beat the drum toward their March toward moral superiority.

Though, to spoil their impressive effort, porn has a foothold that China can’t move. Porn is tied to business and a poke at business would be problematic for their burgeoning international relations and their interest in a free market economy. Smartly, for these same reasons, China’s citizens recognize the importance of porn in this instance. And, just for these same reasons it is a battle they can win. For its citizens, porn represents something much larger than the enjoyment of high definition moans and groans. Rather porn has become a weapon of the abused, which for them come along very rarely.

Coming soon - Porn: The Musical

A new musical is being put together in Los Angeles that focuses on the Adult Film industry that flourishes in the San Fernando Valley.  A theater group from NYC, The Civilians and L.A.’s Center Theatre Group (recently transferred 9 to 5 to Broadway) have joined forces to create and produce the show in Los Angeles.

According to the CTG, the show “will explore the real-life stories of the people who work in California’s pornography industry.”

The initial phase of the project has “the creative team [going] behind the scenes and learn[ing] about the human side of this business, looking at the work and lives of directors, performers, producers, crew — everyone with a story to tell.”

Members of both theater groups have begun canvassing the valley for interesting stories. The Civilians use what they call an investigative approach to theater — that is taking real-life stories and interpreting them for the stage. (Steve Javors, XBIZ)

Book Review: Girl with a one track mind.

It could be said that the age of the sex blog has been and gone. It isn't shocking, new or liberating... There is nothing to be told that hasn't come before... And perhaps that is right. So when I came across the Mummy of sex bloggers, Abby Lee's book, in a charity shop the other day (for a meagre 25p) I had to buy it!

So, a book review of this now long published book seems to be in order... Mainly because my sex life had dried up as has my cunt.

Published in 2006 after the success of Abby Lee's blog "Girl With a One Track Mind" her book "Confessions of the Seductress Next Door, Girl With a One Track Mind" follows the same confessional tone of her online publishing.

The blurb says everything about this book... Mine reads "They say that men think about sex every eight seconds - I want to know what they do with the other seven..." And boy does she have fun trying to find out! Abby Lee keeps a diary of her exploits and the reader has the key to her inner most private moments and the thoughts attached.

UPDATE: Time running out to sponsor 2010 NYC Sex Blogger Calendar

Hi all, if you are reading this site, then you are someone that can and would appreciate the NYC Sex Blogger Calendar.  They are about to go to the presses, but you can still purchase a day in the calendar for your company, cause, loved ones or a colossal ego.

My pal, DebauchedDiva let me know about their final call, earlier today:

If you’re a business think about buying one day each month and being remembered all year or if you have special sales to promote, you can even include a promotion code for a specified time period.  If you’re a blogger you can have your blog url on your day, or if you’re a reader, any personal message – you can wish us luck or send a greeting to your favorite blogger or celebrate your birthday or anniversary – up to 80 characters will be printed on your day. That $30 includes one pre-ordered calendar (shipping is extra) with all funds in excess of our expenses going directly to Sex Work Awareness. You can purchase as many additional days as you like depending upon availability for $10 each. Although this is a 2010 calendar, we are on an extremely tight schedule and can only sell days through June 28, 2009 in order to give our graphic designer enough time before the finished calendar must be sent to the printer.

So, if you care about sex, bloging or NYC or even the chance to communicate directly with the Diva herself - Carpe Diem, goddammit.  It will be seen a lot more than naming a star after someone (especially in NYC where stars are not visible).  The 2010 NYC Sex Blogger Calendar will be in offices and on refrigerators across the country.  Can you say the same about a little spec of light next to The Dog Star?
