Let’s All Freak Out About Arousal Studies

November 9, 2015 | 0 Comments

So much speculation goes into how the "two" kinds of brains work, and all the nature-versus-nurture, evolution-versus-society talk gets impossibly old... all while people with different gender identities than just "male" and "female" are out there living their lives, exemplifying the fact that "male" and "female" are not the only two categories that humans fall into!

About three years ago, I got in touch with a porn crush of mine: the super handsome and very sexy James Darling, then a budding new star on the queer porn scene. I sent him some interview questions, but James got super-busy being super-awesome and getting more famous, and didn’t have time to [...continue...]

August 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is serious. A few interested commentors and Tweeters have mentioned to me that what they find remarkable about James Deen isn’t, as I had hinted last week, that he’s being treated differently by the media than female stars who want to “cross over” to [...continue...]

But just in case, his most recent album featured a song called “Hell of a Life” that starts with the line, “I think I fell in love with a porn star.” The song is all about [...continue...]

A Newsweek article I read today about male-male rape in the military (seriously, only click on that link if you’re in a pleasant frame of mind; if you start out unhappy, you’ll end it wanting to go out and hurt someone) got me thinking about issues of sexual consent, and human ugliness, [...continue...]
