Online Pornography And Sexual Imagery Hurts Young Minds

Children who are naturally curious about sexual matters may be inclined to look online. The Internet provides a degree of anonymity, accessibility and affordability that make it particularly powerful as a medium for viewing sexual content. What they are likely to be confronted with is a barrage of information in which informed, educational messages are outnumbered by adult sexual entertainment and pornography.

I Printed a 3D Sex Toy

I teamed up with Diply and Tech Alley of ISP Canada and we took sex-tech to a whole new level that neither of them thought was accessible. We 3D-printed a ribbed for your pleasure (as expected) blue dildo, and time lapsed the whole thing for your viewing entertainment -- because, that's what I do.

The Danger of Pornography Is That We Don't See the Women as People

Christie Mack, a retired porn actress was beaten by her ex, MMA fighter Jon Koppenhaver. Yet staggering amounts of people seemed to believe that Mack didn't deserve sympathy because she's a porn star, and was therefore asking for it. It's very sad that the perception of a woman being a "slut who deserves what she gets" doesn't turn off in the moment that the pornographic video ends. Despite the "real feel" elements of the film making, the porn industry is just like every other film industry -- every movie is ONLY a movie.

Dear Daughter, Let's Talk About Porn - Love, Mom

This is the porn talk. By now you know what sex is (and what fun THAT talk was!), and in all likelihood you know more about porn than I imagine. Sex is a universal human experience, and a private one, which means I wanted you to hear about it from the people closest to you. But over the decades, porn has increasingly become part of the sexual experience, and I don't want to ignore it. Even of it's of no interest to you, you should hear me out, if only to indulge dear old mom.

Sex, Death And Witches: Movie Frights For Halloween In Vancouver

People like me who get excited about poring over the cheapie bins for bargain-priced cult classics should be positively ecstatic about the October programming at the Vancity Theatre. I talked to VIFC programmer Tom Charity about the VIFC's late October schedule -- including the Vancouver-shot porno chic Sexcula; the inspired decision to have Vancouver's Funerary Call do a live score for Häxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages; and the two films paired with Häxan: Ken Russell's The Devils -- a serious favourite of mine -- and Dario Argento's Inferno.
