Court frees U.S. teen jailed 10 years for oral sex

By Matthew Bigg via Reuters:

ATLANTA (Reuters) - A Georgia man sentenced to 10 years in jail without parole for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 17 walked free on Friday after the state's top court ordered his early release.

Genarlow Wilson was greeted by his family as he left the Burruss Correctional Training Facility in Monroe County, Georgia, after serving two years, eight months in jail in a case that sparked a national campaign on his behalf.

"I was pretty confused for the most part (in jail) not knowing what to expect with all the (legal) disappointments we dealt with early on but I am finally happy to see that we have got justice now," Wilson told reporters.

He described what happened as a "learning experience" and said his first priority was to return to education.

Wilson was given a mandatory 10 years after he was convicted in 2005 of aggravated child molestation for having oral sex at a New Year's Eve party in a hotel in Georgia. The act was captured on an amateur video.

In 2006, the law was changed to make a crime such as Wilson's a misdemeanor punishable with a maximum one-year sentence and no entry into the child sex registry.

In a split decision on Friday, the Georgia Supreme Court upheld the ruling of a lower court judge that the sentence constituted "cruel and unusual punishment" banned under the U.S. Constitution.

"Although society has a significant interest in protecting children from premature sexual activity, we must acknowledge that Wilson's crime does not rise to the level of culpability of adults who prey on children," Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears wrote in a 4-3 majority opinion.

"For the law to punish Wilson as it would an adult, with the extraordinarily harsh punishment of 10 years in prison without the possibility of probation or parole, appears to be grossly disproportionate to his crime," the opinion said.

Georgia's attorney general, Thurbert Baker, who challenged the lower court's ruling in June and thus kept Wilson in jail, said he accepted Friday's decision.

"I hope the court's decision will ... put an end to this issue as a matter of contention in the hearts and minds of concerned Georgians and others across the country who have taken such a strong interest," Baker said in a statement.

The case sparked legal challenges and a campaign led by civil rights leaders including Al Sharpton and Joseph Lowery who argued that, while Wilson's deed was wrong, the sentence was excessive, especially given that the law had been changed.

They also argued the sentence would ruin the life of a teenager who had a good school record, was an athlete on his high school football team and had no criminal record.

"It's a banner day for Georgia because clearly this was a miscarriage of justice. ... This time the state has come through with flying colors," Lowery said in an interview.

"Prosecutors need to be more just and sensitive, less ambitious in their decisions," he said.

In a dissenting opinion, Justice George Carley said that when the 2006 law was passed the Georgia legislature said it should not be applied retroactively.

The Incredible World of The Amalgamted Erotica Corporation

Reposted from M.Christian.com:

Curiosity being, after all, the separator between intelligence and brute reflex, and because learning about what really goes on behind the scenes of a major sex-writing industry is naturally the height of anyone’s interest, you should immediately click here to be taken to an insider’s guide to the business of writing customized erotica: the Amalgamated Erotica Corporation blog.

The brilliant and vivacious Sage Vivant

As reported by the brilliant and vivacious Sage Vivant, the Amalgamated Erotica Corp blog is a fascinating examination of the personalities, politics, and general day-to-day world of the professional pornographer. Readers will be entertained and illuminated, their creative and sexual imaginations more than sated, by her reporting of the personalities and trials and tribulations of putting one skillfully crafted dirty word after another.

However, I have to report one issue with Amalgamated Erotica Corp. and Sage Vivant: while I respect her professionalism and mastery of both her literary craft and business conduct I must take exception to her rather disappointing failure to identify the impostor “M.Christian” who she has apparently hired to work for her company. While I have nothing but respect and fondness for Sage I am alarmed that she has aided this disreputable thief of my identity to further usurp by professional existence. Rest assured that my lawyers will be in contact with Amalgamated Erotica Corp. and Sage Vivant, even though I wish her and her business endeavor no ill will.

If you’re interested in reading an incredibly (ahem) ‘penetrating’ interview with myself – and, frankly, who wouldn’t be? Then head right over to Eroszine to learn more than you ever wanted to know via an interview with the fantastic Thomas S. Roche.

Here’s an intro taste:

If you read short erotica in book form -- gay, straight, bi, queer, trans, mixed or just about anything else -- you've read a story by M. Christian. As one of the English-speaking world's most widely-published authors of erotic fiction, he's seen his short stories in literally hundreds of anthologies. But he's also known as an author of science fiction, fantasy and horror, most recently with his gay San Francisco vampire mystery The Very Bloody Marys. Though he's straight, he writes some of the hottest and filthiest gay -- and lesbian -- erotica around, as well as telling the gay coming of age story (as in Marys) with moving inspiration, proving that the erotocreative impulse is nature's guaranteed genderfuck, a font of imaginative subversion that crosses, blurs and at times obliterates all gender and orientation lines.

As if that weren't enough, Christian, Chris to his friends, also blogs extensively and writes uproarious articles about weird history, science and the arts, exploring a list of obsessions that ranges from robots to Japanese culture to classic film to spy novels and Victorian crime fiction, publishing hundreds of articles in addition to his fiction output. If any writer out there can keep up with M. Christian, I'm betting they sport a chrome skeleton and radionuclide power source crammed up their ass.

We caught up with Chris for a long-overdue chat about writing, sex, history, death, and perversion.

A Neckline For Your Neckline

While I'm an avid reader and major supporter of Feminsting, I'm beginning to wonder if they have any kind of sense of humor - or maybe I just have a weirder one. For instance they are quite outraged over the item below while I just see it as a clever bit of design that kind of mocks the plasticity of a certain child's plaything by putting it literally against a pair of the real things ....
Isn't Barbie scary enough whole?

Let alone dismembered and made into fashion accessories.

barbie+necklace.bmp

Ok, now repeat after me. Dismembered women's body parts are not funny, or ironic, classy or a message for recycling (as in this case). They are gross and a reminder that women are continually objectified in compartmentalized ways, where they are judged for a piece or section of their body, not for the total being they are. Dismembered women's body parts are so part of everyday life, you almost have to remind yourself that it is totally fucked up.

I guess, I would like this more if it was done in a way that highlights how scary dismembered women are, a different type of art. Not trying to make something pretty, that really isn't.

Thanks to Trina for the link.

I Wonder Who The Spokeswoman Will Be?

The female equivalent of Bob Dole?

(shudder)

From Metafilter:
Is it "Viagra for women," or merely a panacea for women who want more orgasms? The G-shot, a little collagen injected into a sensitive place, is gaining more attention. It's not just weary working moms looking for a recharge. When a 19-year-old coed decides it's the answer to stop faking orgasms, how much longer before it's as ubiquitous as the little blue pill?

From WVLT, Knoxville, Tennessee:

Miniskirt, Pleads Guilty to DUI, Indecency

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- A Virginia preacher and radio announcer has pleaded guilty in Johnson City to public indecency and drunken driving charges.

Thomas Dale Tester's lawyer told the court yesterday his client didn't remember specifics of the incident in July.

Police say the 58-year-old Tester was wearing a denim miniskirt and offered to have sex with arresting officers.

Investigators say they found a half-empty bottle of vodka and an empty vial that had held prescription painkillers in Tester's car.

The court sent Tester to jail for 24 hours, gave him 24 hours of litter pickup, fined him 800 dollars and put him on probation for a year.

Tester served as pastor of a Bristol area church and had worked for a local Christian radio station.

Sex with bicycles and pavements?

From Scientia Natura:

The article also mentions another man who tried to have sex with pavements.

How does one have sex with a pavement? All I can think of is 'ouch'!

Hate to See What He Does For A Regular 'Oral Exam'

From SF Gate:

A dentist accused of fondling the breasts of 27 female patients is trying to keep his dental license by arguing that chest massages are an appropriate procedure in certain cases. Mark Anderson's lawyer says dental journals discuss the need to massage the pectoral muscles to treat a common jaw problem.

Police say Anderson said during recorded phone calls that he routinely massaged patients' chests to treat temporo-mandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, which causes neck and head pain.

Attorney Robert Zaro told administrative law judge Jonathan Lew at a hearing Thursday that he should let Anderson keep his dental license while disciplinary appeals proceed. Anderson would be supervised by two assistants and would no longer do the chest rubs, Zaro said.

Zaro said Anderson, 48, of Woodland, needs to keep seeing patients so he can feed his seven children and pay for his defense.

The judge made no immediate decision.

Lew suspended Anderson's dental license last month. He was charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery and sexual battery. Yolo County prosecutors are investigating complaints from more than two dozen women who say they also were groped in the examining chair in the last five years.

Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Phillips gave Lew three new complaints, including one from a 31-year-old woman who said Anderson fondled her at least six times over two years.

She took to wearing tight shirts with high necklines, "and Anderson would still get in under her shirt and bra," according to a police report.

Possible headlines include, but are not limited to: Don't Ask, Don't Tell; Be All That You Can Be, etc.

From Marketing Proofs Daily Mail (and reposted from M.Christian.com)

MediaBuyerPlanner: Because gays are barred from military service if they are open about their sexual orientation, visitors to GLEE.com (Gays, Lesbians & Everyone Else) may have been understandably confused by the fact that there were thousands of recruiting ads for the Army, Navy and Air Force on the site.

When informed earlier this week by USA Today that they were advertising on the site, recruiters were surprised, and ordered the job listings to be removed, USA Today reports.

Maj. Michael Baptista, advertising branch chief for the Army National Guard, said the military did not knowingly advertise on the site. The Army National Guard will spend $6.5 million on internet recruiting this year.

Most of the more than 8,000 positions posted on GLEE were tough-to-fill jobs that require in-depth training. Others sought to fill combat slots.

The ads came via Community Connect, GLEE's parent company, as part of an alliance with Monster.com. The military services purchased Monster's so-called diversity-and-inclusion package. The Navy's account manager at Campbell-Ewald says that GLEE had been added to the package when the site launched in March, and that the agency had never been informed of the addition. "It was an internal goodwill effort on their part to give added value," she is quoted as saying.

An Art Show That Kicks Ass

From Gridskipper:

In my humble opinion, outside of New York and perhaps Berlin, the only place you would get to see a photography exhibition where asses are the objects of focus is in Madrid. And so last week the Fundación Canal opened their ass-tastic exhibition Ocultos (hidden things). The show displays 67 images exploring a variety of ways to observe, appreciate and gawk at people's posteriors. Sexy asses, old and wrinkly asses, cute asses, porn star asses, clothed asses with wedgies, cave-men asses -- name the type of ass and you will find it photographed here. It's actually pretty interesting to see how a backside can be made into the subject of classical modern art. Renowned international artists including Capa, Cartier- Bresson, Mapplethorpe, Man Ray and Lucien Clergue, and Spaniards Joan Colom, Rafael Navarro, Ramón Masats, and Isabel Muñoz among many others provide the work. The exhibition will be on to goggle at until the 6th of January 2008.

Really Fun Pillows

From Gizmodo:

funwari_milk_chan_1.jpg


Most people think that all boobs are cushions, but these Funwari Milk-chan, or Fluffy Milk, are real boob cushions. Like the real thing, they come in all different shapes and sizes. Unlike the real thing, however, they're furry. There are five different boobs to choose from, each with its own character:

funwari_milk_chan.jpgFunwari Milk-chan, in the center, is easy-going, but would like to be bigger than she is. Likes: collagen, sleeping. Top left is Can Milk-san is a wannabe celeb with an American boyfriend (that'll be Chen, then) who loves beauty salons.

Below her is Ganguro Milk-chan who, despite her pierced nipple is mature and level-headed. Loves dancing, apparently. Peach Milk-chan is an arachnophobic fashion victim who's pretty frightening when she's angry, is up on current affairs and loves low-brow stuff — um, sounds like me. Finally Miko-chan is the baby of the group, and a total genius. She loves to invent things, and her brain is in her pacifier.

Their official website is rather fabulous, full of slightly odd drawings of boobs standing on each other and toppling over, boobs in sunglasses, singing boobs as well as boobs beating their friends at Halo 3 cartoon strips of the Milk Village quintet's exploits. They cost around $9 each in, yep, Japan. And before you accuse me of being sensationalist, I would just like to say that I was made to write that headline by one of our editors.

111 shirtless men

From Sage Vivant's wonderful Custom Erotica Source Blog:
One hundred and eleven "regular" guys walked into NYC's Abercrombie and Fitch store and took off their shirts. Why? To challenge that store's ridiculous and relentless depiction of perfect-looking people. The guys are part of a group called ImproveEverywhere, which I need to investigate further. Two of the guys were asked to leave the store, even as they were attempting to buy clothing -- so I guess Abercrombie and Fitch just preferred to have fewer "ugly" people in the store than a couple of sales. Interesting, no? Here's the video:

What's the Opposite of a Panty Raid?

From the Register (UK):

Women's panties threaten Burmese Junta (Ladies' smalls sap generals' vital energy)

The Burmese military is facing an unexpected threat from female opponents to its regime - a deluge of panties dispatched to the country's embassies in a "in a culturally insulting gesture of protest" against its recent crackdown on protestors.

According to AP the Panties for Peace initiative is not merely symbolic, since the the group behind the campaign - Lanna Action for Burma - claims "superstitious generals, especially junta leader General Than Shwe... believe that contact with women's underwear saps them of power".

Spokeswoman Liz Hilton (if she's a relation of Paris's then we now know where the heiress's conspicuously absent smalls ended up) said: "It's an extremely strong message in Burmese and in all Southeast Asian culture."

Hilton added that "women in Thailand, Australia, Singapore, England and other European countries have started sending or delivering their underwear to Myanmar missions following informal coordination among activist organisations and individuals".

Quite how many pairs of panties will be required before Than Shwe is rendered powerless is not noted, but the Lanna Action for Burma website is urging women to "post, deliver or fling your panties at the closest Burmese Embassy any day from today".

Reports that Britney Spears is an active supporter of Panties for Peace are unconfirmed.

Bootnote:

The Lanna Action for Burma website also says: "After a day of tri-panty dialogue, deep in the golden triangle due to the popular demand, the panties are back."

Readers should note the "golden triangle" in question is a geographical reference, and not the popular Lindsay Lohan upskirt website of the same name.

Welcome to Weirdsville: The Revenge

From Meine Kleine Fabrik:



You really can’t blame them. How many hundreds of years have we lured them with tasty morsels, only to have that first taste not be food but rather points of sharpened steel driving through their lips, their mouths. How many thousands of years have me thrown vast nets down into their domain, hauling them up to die, flopping and choking in the dry, toxic air? How many millennia have we spent butchering them in so many horrible ways -- but what is worse sometimes only for such frivolous reasons as lipstick, explosives, pet food, fertilizer, or even simply for sport?

Is it no wonder that some of their more brutal kin routinely take pieces out of us, digesting our illusory superiority as easily as they chew up simple cod? Their hungry warriors are frightening enough - vast, insatiable mouths ringed with shredding teeth - but these are grotesque caricatures of vengeance. Their real revenge is small and darting, a terror that strikes very close - too close - to what we consider precious.

Namely, our genitalia.

For now they have limited their field trials to a remote and rather inhospitable location, namely a certain large, winding stretch of water in South America, but rest assured that if their experiments are successful they will, no doubt, take their plan of horrific revenge to every corner of this water-soaked world. I firmly believe that after reading the following account of this devastating weapon being developed, you too will understand the danger we face, the terror possibly lurking within every body of water.

It is called vandellia cirrhosa, or more commonly by the residents of that distant location, the candirú. This rather small member of their species is nevertheless perfectly equipped for its horrendous mission. At only two to three inches in length, its size is ideal. Needle-sharp spines lay along its spine. Normally, this deceptive member of this passive-appearing species lives parasitically, by attaching itself to the gills of its larger brethren and draining off enough blood to sustain itself. It appears to be at first to be a simple, innocent member of that sinuous body of water. Appearances, as always, can be deceptive.

Its teeth are sharp, yes, and as stated those spines are very, very sharp, but it’s such a small little creature. How, you ask, can such a simple, humble organism be capable of feeling our great, proud world? How can this ridiculous ... FISH be so terrifying?

It is in the presence of homo sapiens that this tiny devil reveals its true purpose, its terrible function. You see, this strong, slimy little creature of the Amazon, without a doubt, is the most horrendous weapon ever devised by the coming aquatic rebellion.

We are a species governed more by sex than intellect, so how better but to strike at our most precious organ?

While reports at this time are sketchy, the aptitude and inclination of this tiny member of the Amazonian ecosystem cannot be denied. Lured by urine, this fish has the ability and the powerful inclination to seek out the source, to push its slimy, needle-sharp body up into the human body through the male or female urethra. Pause. Think. I repeat: “Lured by urine, this fish has the ability ... to push its slimy, needle-sharp ... up ... the male or female urethra.”

If you feel the need, you may now wince, moan, scream, or cup your hands around your favorite organs.

Once in place, this little piscine monster cannot easily be removed. The spines along its back face backwards, making any attempt to grab the rarely-exposed tail excruciating and irreparably damaging. If the beast should happen to squirm its way deep enough, the only recourse is immediate surgery to remove it. Without going into too much needless detail, suffice it to say that knives and (if available) large quantities of anesthetic are necessary. However, I propose that the shock and fear generated by the invasion of this aquatic horror would do much more damage that the long incisions needed to remove its ferocious body.

Please, I beg of you, heed this warning. Watch the oceans, and particularly watch the fish that appear to so innocently swim in it - and never, ever, pee in the pool.

SKIN: Tattoo

(Subderal "sensitive technology" responsive tattoos? Sign me up!)


Tattoos and physical mutilation are amongst the oldest forms of personal expression and identity. Subcultures have used tattoos as a form of self representation; a visual language communicating personality and status. Philips Design examined the growing trend of extreme body adornment like tattoos, piercing, implants and scarring.

The Electronics Tattoo film expresses the visual power of sensitive technology applied to the human body. The film subtly leads the viewer through the simultaneous emotional and aesthetic transformations between two lovers.

The Only Certainty: The Wet Spot

From The Daily Galaxy:
"Sexual reproduction is supposed to be a good thing in evolution," he said Alan Tunnacliffe, a molecular biologist at the University of Cambridge. "So when you come across an organism like the bdelloid (image), which hasn't engaged in sexual reproduction for tens of millions of years, you begin to question why sex is important."

Researchers have wondered how the microscopic organism has thrived despite remaining celibate for tens of millions of years. But now they’ve now figured out their evolutionary tricks, researchers said recently.

Their asexual reproduction has allowed duplicate gene copies of the single-celled creatures known as bdelloid rotifers, to become different over time. In fact, it gives the rotifers a wider pool of genes to help them adapt and survive, the researchers reported in the journal Science.

"It is like having a bigger tool kit," Tunnacliffe told Reuters new service. "You can do the same job but better."

Other researchers had shown the translucent, waterborne creatures could survive for 40 million years without any sexual relations. But the big question, according to Tunnacliffe, is how these water-dwelling creatures pulled off this feat without the gene swapping made possible by sexual reproduction.

Plant and animal species that reproduces sexually all have pairs of genes nearly identical to each other, with one of each pair coming from the mother and father. But these creatures get around that with an evolutionary ploy that allows their genes to drift apart and evolve on their own.

"No sex means the genes can evolve in different directions," he said. "It is like you have a bigger gene pool to select from for different functions in evolution."

The theory of natural selection suggests that sex is useful for mixing up genes. But scientists don't know how sex ever got started in the first place. But they have long suspected that organisms prefer sex over asexual reproduction due to the slight shuffling of genes produced through sexual reproduction, which may help species cope with the unexpected in an ever-changing world.

An earlier experiment by a different group of scientists, published in the journal Nature, pitted a strain of yeast that reproduces sexually against a modified, asexual version of the same strain. Each grew and reproduced at the same rate, said Matthew Goddard of the University of Auckland, which would imply that sex has no advantage over asexual reproduction.

But then Goddard and his colleagues raised the stakes, providing less food to the little critters. Under these conditions, those engaging in sex still managed a growth rate of 94 percent whereas the asexual strain only reached 80 percent, which would indicate that sexual organisms are somehow more fit to survive. But the study could not explain why sexual organisms are hardier in stressful conditions. Rolf Hoekstra of Wageningen University noted in a review of the study that, "We are still far from a definitive answer to the question of why sexual reproduction is so common."

As for humans, it’s hard to imagine a world without sex. Axe deodorant would have to completely redo their advertising campaign. Even worse, there would be no more tantalizing sexual friction between our favorite TV characters leaving us wondering, “Are they going to hook up?”

Gravure Idol Fuko And Her P-Cup Breasts

(per the post the follows this one: do not exceed the recommended dose of cookies)

Also from the great Japan Probe:

How big is too big? I think many would agree that former sex worker Fuko, whose 120cm P-cup bust has launched her career as a gravure model, crosses the line into the realm of the freakish:

The doctor who examines her in the above video concedes that her breasts are the biggest he has ever examined. He also states that breast size in Japan is increasing, something he contributes to diet and lifestyle changes in the younger generations.

Even with the trend of increasing breast size, it’s probably unlikely that many Japanese women will be able to have 120cm busts that they can use as gloves while playing catch:

And hence we can expect Fuko to remain an amazing oddity, with her apperances on Japanese TV preceeded by the Indiana Jones soundtrack…

Spice Girl Eats Japanese F-Cup Cookies


From Japan Probe:

One of the Spice Girls has reportedly turned to a Japanese novelty product to improve her body:

Sporty Spice, who has the flattest chest in the group, is attempting to boost her bust for the tour by eating Japanese F-Cup cookies.

Mel told BBC Radio 1: “I’ll be a guinea-pig for them, can you imagine if my boobs got bigger suddenly? That’d be great!”

The cookies, with a calorific value of 68.7 each, contain trans-fats which are sent directly to the breast area, as well as 50mg of “breast-enhancing herb” Pueraria Mirifica.

Manufacturers claim women can expect to see their breasts increase by at least a cup-size if they eat two cookies a day.

Les Potes


Keeping up with the French theme for today, here's a great little post from the great Paris Blog:
Les Potes is our latest La Carte de Rencontre, promoting safe sex. These beauties were dropped in the 50 square meters along the Rue des Archives in the Marais (or what seems like 50 square meters), an area so dense with gay French men you’d think you were back on Castro Street in San Francisco in 1979. The design features a brilliant rubber stamp by Robert Ruscoe – Les Potes – a play on La Poste and “capotes,” French for a “rubber.” And of course, Rubber Saves Lives. AIDS activism in a friendly way.

The cards are limited editions – only 1000 are printed and distributed – and collector’s items. We’re always looking for innovative designs and ideas for these cards, so if you have something to say to the Parisian public, please get in touch.

Things Always Seem Better in Paris

I'm not a huge fan of Gridskipper (mainly because when they post about San Francisco there always seems to be some kind of glaring omission) but had to share this sexy little feature:

Public Sex in Paris
Walking around this city on a sunny afternoon, you think there must be a secret governmental "Department of Cliché Enforcement" that hires good-looking couples to make out in any conceivably romantic area. The whole thing seems absolutely charming until you see the couple dry humping on a chair in the middle of the lawn in the Luxembourg gardens at 3 p.m. on a Sunday. But secretly, you wouldn't mind a piece of that yourself. Here are our best spots in Paris (following our similar New York guide) for hot and sweaty action in public.

Attack of the Killer Jubblies

From Kotaku:
Kotaku After Dark readers, top heavy avatars incoming! PC game Oppai Slider 2 (yes, it's a sequel!) lets players create massive jubblies and then seal the deed. As far as I can tell that's about it. Here's the game's flow chart: Start, choose character, choose player, "slider" (boob customization), sex scene, ending. There's something refreshing about how blunt this game is. That, and something very, very naughty. There are way too many shameful patch-enabled clips of "unlocked boob limits" after the jump. Apparently far more freakazoid than the actual game stuff. There's floor cleaning, too! Click at your own risk!!

Japanese School Uniform

Vandals destroy controversial Serrano photographs

Piss Christ

From MetaFilter by Pastabagel

On Friday, October 5th, a group of self proclaimed "National Socialists" burst into the Kulturen Gallery in Sweden and destroyed nearly half of Andres Serrano's exhibit "The History of Sex". They videotaped themselves in the act (alternate youtube link, with stunning comments), set it to a heavy metal soundtrack and released it on the internet. (WARNING: Assume all links are NSFW).

Serrano became notorious in 1989 when his "Piss Christ", a photograph of a crucifix submerged in urine, drew the ire of conservatives because it was supported by taxpayer funds through the National Endowment for the Arts. Since then, Serrano has been a lighting rod for both free-speech advocates and advocates of abolishing government-sponsored grants for the arts and humanities.

Unlike drunken revelers who slashed a Monet in Paris two days later, these nazis filmed their rampage, editing the footage with text commentary and setting it to music. In doing so, did the vandals themselves create a work of art? Can the destruction of art every be justified on artistic grounds? Can propaganda be art?

Falwell colleague dies getting his autoerotic rubber kink on

From Pam's House Blend:

Throw another religious conservative sexual hypocrite log onto the fire. This one comes to us from Montgomery, Alabama. Let's start out with the straight take on matters.
Reverend Gary Aldridge was found dead in his home in east Montgomery. He was the senior pastor at Thorington Road Baptist Church for the last 15 years.

Gary Aldridge graduated from Liberty University and later worked for the late Jerry Falwell. A former colleague at the school remembered him as well.

"He went on to become one of the deans and the students loved him. He had a tremendous impact on them," said Dr. Bob Miller of Liberty University.
I guess his friends are going to have a hard time explaining what was going on in Aldridge's mind at the time he went to meet his maker. The Smoking Gun:
An Alabama minister who died in June of "accidental mechanical asphyxia" was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.

Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking). While the Montgomery Advertiser, which first obtained the autopsy records, reported on Aldridge's two wet suits, the family newspaper chose not to mention what police discovered inside the minister's rubber briefs.
Oh my. It gets better. Blogenfreude notes that Aldridge also had a condom-covered dildo up his bum:


OK #1: Where did he get the dildo -- after all it's illegal to sell them in Alabama. .
#2: The Peter needs to start an investigation on this pronto.

Conservative sexual hypocrites -- the gift that keeps on giving.

Can't help but think of that great line from Top Secret: "The doctors worked for two hours ... to remove the smile from his face ..."

Found on YouTube: First Porn Movie

Porn Vending Machine-Protecting Cop Shot in the Butt

From Tokyo Mango:
Those of you who always doubted whether porn is really sold in vending machines in Japan can stop wondering now. In the news this weekend is a story of a cop who was shot in the butt while attempting to thwart a porn vending machine robbery in Fukuoka. Two guys were trying to break into the thing when the cop rolled by. In the midst of the struggle, one of the guys grabbed the cop's gun from his holster and shot him in the butt. I don't know if they got away. I don't think they got away with the porn they wanted. It must have been really expensive porn to be worth stealing from a frigging machine.

Stuff We Wished Existed But Doesn't: The Nazi Sex Doll


Adolph, who actually did not order production of nazi sex dolls

From YNetNews.com:
Italian newspaper 'Corriere della Sera' says Nazi dictator ordered production of inflatable sex dolls for S.S. soldiers; doll would be blonde, blue-eyed with large lips and breasts

The Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler ordered, in 1941, a Danish doctor named Olen Hannussen, to develop the world's first inflatable sex doll, the Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera' reported on Monday.

The doll was went meant to serve the sexual needs of the German fighting man, who might otherwise go to brothels and contract a sexual transmitted disease – or worse, have sex with non-Aryan women and thus pollute the race.

The story of the sex doll first appeared in a Norwegian newspaper, which said that Hitler himself provided the measurements and design for the doll: "She should be a natural size with a pretty woman's appearance with white skin, blonde hair, blue eyes, 1.76 meters (5 feet, nine inches) high, with large lips and breasts."

According to the project, which was classified as "top secret," soldiers would inflate up the doll when feeling the urge, and it would meet their sexual needs.

The officer directly responsible for the sex doll project was S.S. commander Heinrich Himmler.

Perfecting the plastic woman

According to another report, Dr. Rudolf Chargeheimer, a psychiatrist appointed by Himmler to help develop the prototype, wrote that "the purpose and goal of the dolls is to relieve our soldiers. They have to fight and not to mingle with 'foreign women.'"

The plan was never put into action because the factory that was supposed to manufacture the sex doll was in the city of Dresden, which was bombed by the Allies. And so Hitler never got to see his inflatable girls put to use.

"However," wrote Chargeheimer, "no real men will prefer a doll to a real woman until our technicians meet the following quality standards: The synthetic flesh has to feel the same like real flesh. The doll’s body should be as agile and moveable as the real body. The doll’s organ should feel absolutely realistic.”

The plan was never put into action because the factory that was supposed to manufacture the sex doll was in the city of Dresden, which was bombed by the Allies. And so Hitler never got to see his inflatable girls put to use.
Alas the story is a hoax but that doesn't change the fact that it's a damned weird story.

Honey Doll Has Touch Sensors, Moans, Has Fake Orgasms

From Gizmodo:
Thank the Japanese for pushing humanity one step closer to sexbots: This almost-perfect, silicon-made Honey Doll is equipped with touch sensors that will make her moan with different sounds.

Honey Doll Sensors

The sensors activate an internal MP3 player connected to a speaker located in the head of the doll. The best part: you can put whatever sound you want in the player, although you can use the ones that come built-in.

Yep. One small step for a man, one giant leap for wanking. [UPDATE: Apparently, the sensors and voice option can be added to any of the company's dolls, not just that model.]
