Sex! In Private and in Porn! In America and Israel!

I’ve been writing a lot about sex lately, everybody! Sex in private, sex in porn! In America and in Israel! After much work, my articles are out in the world. Here are my most recent three pieces (one on private sex, and two on porn), at Glamour.com and MEL Magazine!

  • At Glamour.com, I explored “How Mainstream Porn Is Finally Making Room for Trans Performers“! This article was a massive undertaking. The subject is so huge and so important that left no rock unturned when diving into it. I interviewed almost a dozen amazing people involved in all aspects of trans porn, from performers to directors to producers to marketers to researchers to experts. And I teamed up with porn streaming megalith Pornhub to take a look into transgender porn consumption on the world’s biggest porn site!
    A nibble:
    It may come as a surprise to some that the majority of pornography featuring trans women is consumed by cisgender men who identify as heterosexual. But it’s a truth well-known among porn industry insiders. Pornhub reports that men are 63 percent more likely to search for transgender-related pornography, and xHamster says a full 87.5 percent of their searches for the word ‘shemale’ are from men. ‘There’s the basic general rule that mainstream porn is always marketed to men,’ says Tobi Hill-Meyer. And what those male viewers have learned to expect from trans porn, it seems, is trans women with erect penises who penetrate their partners—whether that’s what most trans women want to do in their real lives or not.”

  • For MEL Magazine, I took a long, hard (teehee) look into the porn industry (or lack thereof) in Israel! I discovered that although there’s almost no porn being made in Israel, Israeli porn fans are dying for homegrown smut. And what’s out there is politically, religiously, and ethnically fraught.
    A tidbit:
    “The problem is there’s just not very much Israeli-produced porn. Accordingly, sometimes Arab videos get tagged with ‘Israel’ or ‘Israeli,’ just so that people in Israel can find something to watch — if, of course, they’re willing to deal with the minefields that are the comments sections.”

  • Also for MEL, I paired erotica writer and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel up with an advice-seeker who wanted to bring eroticism back into her relationship in my latest “Sex Guide”!
    A taste:
    “You can up the ante by not having sex when you’re together. If he’s been thinking racy thoughts about you all day, he’ll probably be eager to get busy. Tell him that you want to wait: Not indefinitely, but for a day or two. You can even make it a game. If you know he’s turned on, ask him what he wants to do with you when he does get you into bed and tell him you’re eager to do that soon. You don’t have to ignore your arousal, but instead play with it. Tease him.”

I’ll have some book-related updates soon, dearest readers! In the meantime, enjoy these three fruits of my labor!
