David Choe Tells Us Why He’s Giving Away $100,000 in a Scavenger Hunt

And I say, "Why don’t you pick?" And he goes, “What do you mean?” I go, “Look through my phone, here go ahead,” and he goes, “What do you mean?” I go, “Look,” and I show him the pictures, and his eyes were the biggest they’ve ever gotten. I go, “I have hundreds of girlfriends, just pick. You want me to get married so bad, I can’t pick any of them. This one is really good at sucking dick, this one does this for me, this one sucks my dick and then makes me dinner, this one can hold a conversation, this one’s really funny. I don’t know, I can’t pick one, but you really want me to get married.” I’m like, this is crazy, I’m having a real talk with my dad. So he goes, "This is crazy," and I go, “You know what, this feels fucking good.” So since Thanksgiving, I don’t lie to my parents anymore.

Inside the Soviet Union’s secret pornography collection

How did Skorodumov amass such a collection when owning a foreign title could result in a Gulag sentence? First, he was careful to frame it within the discourse of communist ideology, receiving documents from a variety of organisations attesting to its scientific value. Ivan Yermakov, the director of the soon-to-be-disbanded State Psychoanalytic Institute, provided one such letter in 1926: Sexuality demands serious and rigorous scientific examination, particularly as it has played such an extensive role in the evolution of culture and daily life,” wrote Yermakov, who published many of Freud’s works in Russian for the first time. “It is highly important to preserve the collection in unadulterated form as a socially valuable work.” There is also a second theory. Stalin’s secret police chief Genrikh Yagoda, a pornography aficionado whose apartment reportedly held a dildo collection, is said to have enjoyed viewing Skorodumov’s holdings. Librarians believe that he personally ensured the latter’s safety.

Is Terry Richardson an Artist or a Predator?

The scene at his studio back then was a blur of Beavis and Butt-head jokes, Jackass pranks, and goofy porn shoots. There was a penis in a hot-dog bun, a guy lighting his fart on fire. Steve-O, a member of the Jackass cast, recalls in his memoir an afternoon when Johnny Knoxville called and said, “Hey, I’m at Terry Richardson’s studio. He wants to do a bukkake shoot, and we’re just a few cocks short. You game?” Richardson photographed it all. He wanted Steve-O “pulling a girl’s hair while I shot a load on her face and someone else pointed a gun at her head.”

Sex gegen Bezahlung – Ich bin Stricher

Die anderen Gäste in der Bar sitzen meist alleine und unterhalten sich nicht miteinander. Aber wenn die Tür sich öffnet, blicken sie gemeinsam Richtung Eingang. Auf der Suche nach Frischfleisch. Dabei sind es nicht die Schönen und die Reichen, die hier einen Stricher mit nach Hause nehmen. Es sind vielmehr die Dickeren und die Älteren, die im sexdurchdrungenen Berlin sonst keine Sexpartner mehr finden.

Finding Goatse: The Mystery Man Behind the Most Disturbing Internet Meme in History

Sometime in the late 20th century a naked man bent over, spread his ass and took a picture. Eventually that picture, known as Goatse, became one of the most venerable memes in internet history. Who is this man, and how did his ass take over the internet?

Lana Wachowski opens up about transgender decision

The Hollywood film-maker Lana Wachowski has described how she publicly came out as transgender while shooting the Matrix sequels with her brother Andy. The Wachowskis made their feature debut with the 1996 thriller Bound before scoring a global success with the 1999 science-fiction blockbuster The Matrix. But it was during production on the Matrix sequels, on set in Australia during 2002, that Lana began to struggle. "For years I couldn't even say the words 'transgender' or 'transexual'," she said. "When I began to admit it to myself, I knew I would eventually have to tell my parents and my brother and my sisters. This fact would inject such terror into me that I would not sleep for days."

Just how big are porn sites?

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in possession of a fast internet connection must be in want of some porn. According to Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner, which tracks users across the web with a cookie, dozens of adult destinations populate the top 500 websites. Xvideos, the largest porn site on the web with 4.4 billion page views per month, is three times the size of CNN or ESPN, and twice the size of Reddit. It’s probably not unrealistic to say that porn makes up 30% of the total data transferred across the internet.

Insane Sex Laws Inspired by Republicans

As Republican lawmakers have pushed ever more intrusive and expansive uterus-related legislation, some of their colleagues across the aisle have fired back with intentionally and equally ridiculous counterproposals. From mandatory rectal exams for guys seeking Viagra to prohibitions on sperm-stifling vasectomies, most of these male-only provisions have, unsurprisingly, flopped. But they've scored big as symbolic gestures, spotlighting the inherent sexism of laws that regulate only lady parts.

Japan’s 77-year-old porn actor: unlikely face of an ageing population

According to industry executives, the market for "silver porn" has doubled over the last decade and now comprises about a fifth of the 3,000 adult films, worth 100 billion yen (£825m), that Japan produces every year. But, according to film producer Gaichi Kono, the industry is struggling to survive the switch from DVD format to online distribution. ... Tokuda usually appears with much younger women – the youngest was 54 years his junior – in films with such titles as Forbidden Elderly Care.

Porn gang kidnaps Saddam Hussein body double

An enterprising gang of porn producers kidnapped a Saddam Hussein lookalike last week, with the hopes of forcing him to perform in a sex tape that they planned to sell as “found footage.” Mohamed Bishr told Ahram Online that three men in black suits forced him into a van while he was on his way to a cafe in Alexandria, Egypt last Sunday. Bishr had earlier refused an offer from an unidentified group that offered him $333,000 to appear as Hussein in a sex tape, according to his son, Mahmoud.

ICANN approves .XXX red-light district for the Internet

The TLD is meant to give pornographic websites a clearly marked home on the Internet, but it has gone through so many ups and downs over the last 11 years that it's almost a shock that it has finally gone through. Still, the measure didn't pass without opposition—nine ICANN board members voted in favor of .XXX, while three opposed and four abstained—and the vote went against the recommendation of ICANN's Government Advisory Committee.

Sex Is Cheap

The idea that sex ratios alter sexual behavior is well-established. Analysis of demographic data from 117 countries has shown that when men outnumber women, women have the upper hand: Marriage rates rise and fewer children are born outside marriage. An oversupply of women, however, tends to lead to a more sexually permissive culture.
