1) Aaahahahaha, I made you look at a penis snake! Although, actually, according to Grist, “this thing is not a snake (or a penis) but actually a caecilian, which is a type of legless amphibian. Engineers in the Amazon discovered it while they were trying to drain a portion of the Madeira River for a hydroelectric project, and were instead surprised to find six giant dicks swanning around. (They get up to 30 inches long! TOO BIG.) The species has been identified as Atretochoana eiselti.” And it is the weirdest thing you’ll (probably) see today.
2) An interesting and thoughtful interview with the founder of Anteros Media from Tracy Clark-Flory at Salon, touching on socially responsible gay porn, condom use, and female viewers.
3) I must get this book, How to be a Woman, by Caitlin Moran. She cracks me up and seems to be injecting some much-needed energy into the discussion of feminism. Plus, I’ve read some of her rants on not having kids like this one on Grist, and YES. THANK YOU.
4) Tonight I’ll be taping a show for Velvet Radio, “a free podcast featuring humorous and informative discussions on sex and sexuality as well as interviews, news and erotic game show segments!” I’ll be appearing as Miss Lagsalot, with Stormy Leather (totally fucking amazing burlesque performer and model), and we’ll be guessing, in tandem, what Raven Bay is hiding in her vagina. Yep. This is going to be hilarious! The show will air in the next few weeks but I don’t know when yet. I’ll keep y’all posted!
