TF: MPAA Working with ICANN on Policies Targeting Pirate Sites

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

DOMAINSPACE—An interesting article posted today to TorrentFreak explores the extent to which the Motion Picture Association of America is an active participant with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in the development of policies that will make it "harder for pirate sites to register and keep their domains."

The effort makes certain sense for the trade association following its failed bids in years past to get the United States Congress to pass far-reaching legislation such as SOPA, PIPA and COICA, which, as explained by opponent Electronic Frontier Foundation, "... would have a created a 'blacklist' of censored websites."

ADVERTISEMENT


Fast forward to the present, and ICANN is in the very process of rolling out many hundreds of new top-level domains, each one of them a potential hotbed of piracy. As TF's Ernesto points out, "As a member of several ICANN stakeholder groups the lobby outfit is keeping a close eye on the movie industry’s interests. Most of these efforts are directed against pirate sites. For example, in ICANN’s most recent registrar agreements it’s clearly stated that domain names should not be used for copyright infringement."

In a post last week on the MPAA website, Alex Deacon, senior vice president for internet technology wrote that the new agreements “contain new obligations for ICANN’s contract partners to promptly investigate and respond to use of domain names for illegal and abusive activities, including those related to IP infringement.”

Ernesto observes that Deacon's post is "carefully worded" in an obvious effort to cast the trade group as reasonable, and not embarking on more SOPA campaigns, but remains convinced that the MPAA has a serious and comprehensive agenda in mind.

"Thanks to internal documents that were made public in the Sony leak," he writes, "we know that the MPAA ideally wants to adopt 'procedures for broad-based termination of pirate sites.'"

The leaked documents show that the MPAA is aware that such sweeping changes via ICANN are “unlikely,” but also reveal that it remains steadfastly devoted to  “seeking to make policy changes through ICANN meetings."

Until that happens, the MPAA is stuck trying to use "the existing agreements to convince registrars to take action against domain names that are used by 'pirate' sites," a voluntary approach that Ernesto notes has been met with abject failure in previous attempts.

But as Deacon's post makes clear, the MPAA remains committed to helping ICANN develop new policies for domain governance, including "the important topic of enhancing ICANN’s accountability."

'The Imitation Game' Sparks Movement to Pardon UK Gays

'The Imitation Game' Sparks Movement to Pardon UK Gays

LONDONThe Imitation Game may have been virtually shut out of this year's Oscars, winning only Best Adapted Screenplay, but for many, the mere existence of the movie was far more important than any awards it might receive: It was a recognition that gay people can not only contribute to society, but in the case of Alan Turing, almost singlehandedly saved 14 million British lives and shortened World War II for the British by at least two years.

Turing, it will be recalled, was the mathematician who invented a machine that cracked the Nazi regime's "unbreakable" coding device, Enigma. But as the movie (and book which preceded it) points out, despite Turing's brilliance, the fact that he was homosexual led him to be targeted by police, banned from further government work, arrested and chemically castrated to dampen his "urges"—and he eventually committed suicide in 1954 by drinking cyanide.

ADVERTISEMENT


A bit belatedly, the British government issued an apology for its treatment of Turing in 2009, and Turing himself was eventually pardoned by Queen Elizabeth II under what's called the "Royal Prerogative of Mercy"—but what about the tens of thousands of other gay men (and women) who were arrested and convicted of "gross indecency" (as gay sex was criminalized in those days)?

The law was taken off the books in 2003, and hadn't been used for 36 years before that, but Turing's great-niece, Rachel Barnes, and her extended family estimate that more than 49,000 other Brits suffered the same discrimination and prosecution as Turing did—and they've collected over 600,000 names on a petition to urge the government to pardon those victims as well.

"Alan's treatment by the government was absolutely horrific," Barnes wrote in an article published yesterday on the Independent.co.uk website. "After being convicted he was made to choose between a two-year prison sentence or being injected with female hormones. Having chosen the latter, both his mental and physical health deteriorated. He ended up with severe depression and was unable to continue his work. In the end, he committed suicide, at the age of 41.

"But Alan's legacy still hasn’t been properly fulfilled," she continued. "He wasn't the only gay man to receive such shocking treatment by the government. An estimated 49,000 other men were also charged with gross indecency, and have never been pardoned by the government. And 15,000 of these men are still alive. If the Government believes in justice, then they must receive the same pardon as Alan within their lifetimes. It would make such a huge difference to them and their families."

The organization YouGov polled Britains on the subject and found that two out of three voters favored pardoning those who had been convicted of "gross indecency," while just 21 percent—mostly conservatives and UKIP voters—opposed the move.

Barnes, together with Nevile Hunt, Turing's great nephew, and Thomas Barnes, his great-great nephew (pictured), delivered their petition to the Prime Minister's office at No. 10 Downing Street earlier this week, but so far, there has been no official reaction to the plea.

Nikki Benz Files Anti-SLAPP Motion Challenging Lisa Ann TRO

Nikki Benz Files Anti-SLAPP Motion Challenging Lisa Ann TRO

LOS ANGELES—In response to a Temporary Restraining Order filed earlier this month by retired porn star Lisa Ann, adult performer Nikki Benz has stated that she filed an anti-SLAPP motion in court yesterday, and that a hearing on the motion is scheduled for March 26 in LA Superior Court.

An anti-SLAPP motion is an attempt to strike a frivolous lawsuit, which is what Benz claims Lisa Ann's action against her amounts to. The motion seeks legal fees and the striking of any proceedings filed by Lisa Ann.

ADVERTISEMENT


Benz further asserts that any tweets or statements she may have made about Lisa Ann are protected First Amendment speech, and that any legal papers filed by Lisa Ann were ''nothing more than an attempt to garner publicity... by an adult entertainer who is starved for attention.''

In a statement by Benz issued today, she adds that the anti-SLAPP motion is supported in part by declarations from adult entertainers Jayden Jaymes and Jesse Jane.

"I take the filing of Lisa Ann's frivolous case against me very seriously and intend to aggressively pursue all legal options against her, including the recovery of all my legal fees," said the star. "The action she filed was a publicity stunt—nothing more, nothing less. I am looking forward to our day in court.''

Oregon State University ‘Library Girl’ Trades Diploma For Dildos

Kendra Sunderland Inks Exclusive Deal with Pipedream

Posted Feb 27th, 2015 11:40 AM

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Days after announcing their offer for an exclusive toy deal, Pipedream has cemented a contract with 19-year-old Kendra Sunderland. The trending Oregon State University ‘Library Girl’ has commanded headlines since her arrest two weeks ago, when police received a tip about a live cam performance she made in the OSU library. The Pipedream deal softens the blow of a tough week – Kendra appeared in court yesterday where she was arraigned on public indecency charges, a Class A misdemeanor.

ADVERTISEMENT


“We’re very excited to have such a trending figure as part of the Pipedream family of brands,” said Pipedream chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “This solidifies our commitment to remaining on the cutting edge. We keep our finger on the pulse of pop culture to bring the hottest new stars to the market first.”

Sunderland commented, “I’m beyond excited to be working with Pipedream. All of this has happened so fast, it still shocks me that people are willing to help my dreams come true. Pipedream has a fun crew and I can't wait to start working with them and start getting some awesome name brand products out there!”

The manufacturer will create a custom line of toys that revolve around Sunderland and her persona, with a molding and shoot scheduled for next week. Sunderland is scheduled for her next court appearance April 28, and if convicted, faces a maximum fine of $6,250 and up to one year in jail.

Google Reverses Blogger Porn Ban Following 'Ton of Feedback'

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

But the search giant says it will "step up" enforcement of banned commercial porn on Blogger.

Google Reverses Blogger Porn Ban Following 'Ton of Feedback'

LOS ANGELESLate last night, Google issued an update on its recent decision to ban sexually explicit content on its Blogger network. The update essentially reverses the most egregious changes to a policy that would, as one consequence, have forced longtime users of the platform to either scrape their blogs of content or become essentially invisible to all but invited guests. But Google is not backing down all the way. Instead, in conceding defeat on its desired plan, it resolves to double-down on what it calls "our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn."

ADVERTISEMENT


The complete statement reads:

Hello everyone,

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn. 

Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

Thank you for your continued feedback. 

The Blogger Team

Verizon Responds to FCC Net Neutrality Vote

Verizon Responds to FCC Net Neutrality Vote

LOS ANGELES—In the aftermath of the vote today by the FCC approving a divisive Net Neutrality proposal that uses Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 as one of the foundations of its authority, Verizon has issued the following statement in response.

Today the Federal Communications Commission approved an order urged by President Obama that imposes rules on broadband Internet services that were written in the era of the steam locomotive and the telegraph. The following statement should be attributed to Michael E. Glover, Verizon senior vice president, public policy and government affairs:

ADVERTISEMENT


“Today’s decision by the FCC to encumber broadband Internet services with badly antiquated regulations is a radical step that presages a time of uncertainty for consumers, innovators and investors. Over the past two decades a bipartisan, light-touch policy approach unleashed unprecedented investment and enabled the broadband Internet age consumers now enjoy. Verizon News Release, page 2

“The FCC today chose to change the way the commercial Internet has operated since its creation. Changing a platform that has been so successful should be done, if at all, only after careful policy analysis, full transparency, and by the legislature, which is constitutionally charged with determining policy. As a result, it is likely that history will judge today’s actions as misguided.

“The FCC’s move is especially regrettable because it is wholly unnecessary. The FCC had targeted tools available to preserve an open Internet, but instead chose to use this order as an excuse to adopt 300-plus pages of broad and open-ended regulatory arcana that will have unintended negative consequences for consumers and various parts of the Internet ecosystem for years to come.

“What has been and will remain constant before, during and after the existence of any regulations is Verizon’s commitment to an open Internet that provides consumers with competitive broadband choices and Internet access when, where, and how they want.”

A PDF of the statement can be found here.

Wankband Searching For Beta Testers For Wearable Device To Charge Electronics

CYBERSPACE—Guys, ever thought to yourself, “If only there were a way that I could convert the energy it takes to jerk off into energy that could power up my cell phone, laptop computer or tablet”? If you, then not only are you in luck, but you also are weirdly and specifically psychic.

The Wankband is a wearable device, similar to those exercise tracking bands, that houses a chamber with a weighted ball inside that travels back and forth as you tap to create and store energy for the aforementioned electronics charging. Just jerk off, then plug in your phone or other device. And women can even use the device too, so guys don;t need to run the risk of developing carpal tunnel just to update their Facebook status.

ADVERTISEMENT


The Wankband is reportedly being developed by Pornhub, who makes it incredibly difficult to tell on the website TheWankband.com if the device is real or a very clever publicity stunt. Regardless, the story is being reported on various techie websites, including Gizmodo and Digital Trends. And according to the promo video and site, the search is on for Beta testers.

Last Episode of NakedSword Original's 'A Wicked Affair' is Live

Posted Feb 26th, 2015 02:04 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—NakedSword Original's hardcore erotic thriller, A Wicked Game ends today with the release of the much anticipated 4th episode. In recent episodes, clues have been adding up to imply that the perfect marriage between Ryan and Duncan wasn't so perfect after all, and there remain many questions surrounding the murder of Duncan Black. In last week's episode, viewers were introduced to James Hamilton and got a look into the world of this dark and twisted character, which includes slaves, voyeurism and BDSM. Last we saw James he was spying on his neighbors having sex. In the finale now playing only on NakedSword.com, he goes way further than just watching.

ADVERTISEMENT


As Duncan and Ryan are at their vacation home asleep in bed in the middle of the night, they suddenly awake to find themselves tied up on the floor with psycho James Hamilton standing over them. James tells Duncan he's going to fuck his husband Ryan while he watches. "Aren't we having fun, Duncan; isn't this fun, Duncan," he taunts the newlywed as he throws his husband Ryan on the couch and proceeds to fuck him in compromising positions with his big dick. Duncan is forced to watch the whole thing while James pounds away on top of Ryan, right beside him and all over the couch. It's a voyeuristic cuckoldry home invasion fantasy spectacular! Once James has his way with Ryan, he cums all over Duncan and Ryan, then leaves the room to go get a knife. As he threatens to use it on Ryan, Duncan finally breaks free from the ropes and knocks James down and ends up stabbing him repeatedly. He then helps untie Ryan, only to be stabbed and killed by Ryan, his husband. It turns out James and Ryan were secret lovers and Ryan only married Duncan for his money! Will Ryan get away with it or will detective Jarec Wentworth see right through the whole charade? Watch the finale of this one-of-kind adult thriller to find out and to see Falcon star Ryan Rose like you've never seen him before.

Tim Valenti, NakedSword president and the film's executive producer said, "I'm really happy about the way our original productions are progressing three years into producing original content consistently. A Wicked Game is a perfect example of that as is our recent BelAmi co-production Dirty Rascals. We have an amazing new slate of features lined up for the rest of the year that will continue to excite and stimulate in more ways than one!"

NakedSword Director mr. Pam said of the finale and movie A Wicked Game, "This movie just came together perfectly! Executive producer Tim Valenti had the idea of shooting in Florida, on a boat and making pretty boy Ryan Rose a psycho killer. He wanted the movie loosely based on the 1989 movie Dead Calm. So a hint of CSI, a sprinkle of Dead Calm combined with Leo Fortes twisted, sadistic imagination – and there you have this brilliant script for A Wicked Game."

She goes on to say of the finale, "Once the cameras started rolling, the scene was soooo hot.  James Hamilton really took the role of 'psycho killer' seriously to the point where his acting was so real, I wanted to keep all sharp objects away from him!  Ryan Rose LOVED this scene. He loved that he got to express a different, more twisted and kinky side of his sexuality.  He's an amazing performer, puts on a stunning sex show, loves to fuck and fortunately for us, LOVED getting tied up and fucked while on top of Duncan. He was amazing!"

FCC Passes Net Neutrality Proposal Along Party Lines

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Today's contentious vote marks what will surely be a contuing debate, in public, in Congress and in the courts, about the proper reach and role of internet governance.

FCC Passes Net Neutrality Proposal Along Party Lines

LOS ANGELES—As anticipated, the FCC today passed the "Net Neutrality" proposal put forth by Chairman Tom Wheeler and supported by the Commission's two other Democrats, Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel, with vociferous and fierce opposition by the two Republicans, Ajit Pai and Michael O'Reilly. It was 3-2 vote.

Despite the fact that the outcome of the vote was a foregone conclusion, the sense of tension in the hearing room was palpable, a result of an occasion perceived to be historic by those on either side of the issue. Indeed, like so many other issues being debated today, this one sees very few people staking out a middle ground, if there is one. In utilizing Title II of the Communications Act of 1934 as one of its foundational authorities underpinning the proposal approved today, which designates the internet as a "common carrier," the FCC guaranteed that passions would be raised to fever pitch.

ADVERTISEMENT


That sense that an historic ovvereach was in the offing permeated the remarks prior to the vote made by the Commission's two dissenters. Sitting at either end of the dais, the two young men each characterized the impending vote as a disaster for the future of broadband development and access in the United States.

Pai in particular took direct aim at the motivation behind the proposal, charging that the only reason it invoked Title II is because "President Obama told us to do so," and even playing the soundbite of the President asking the FCC in fact to use Title II. Calling "the plan the problem," he said that if it is not checked by the inevitable lawsuits that will follow, it will inevitably lead to higher broadband process, slower speeds, less development and fewer options for consumers.

As far as the government's promise to maintain a regulatory "light-touch" on ISPs and internet development, Pai called it "fig leaf forbearance."

Paraphrasing President George H.W. Bush, he said, "Read my lips: more new taxes are coming. It's just a matter of when."

His philosophical and political colleague, O'Reilly, covered much of the same ground as Pai, referring to Title II as a "nuclear option," referring to the process of forbearance promised by the FCC as "fauxbearance," and warning of the use of the underlying authority, "This is not Title II-lite."

Not surprisingly, the comments made by the three Democrat supporters of the proposal were less imflammatory than those made by the Republicans, and tended to focus on the positive and historic nature of the occasion, emphasizing the democratic nature of the FCC's decision-making process and the sense that the proposal was meeting the needs of consumers and abiding by the directive of Congress to keep the internet open and free without creating obstacles to innovation and development. In that sense, and even before the actual vote, they each engaged in a little self-congratulation, even though today's vote is just the beginning of the process.

Mignon Clyburn, a solid supporter of the proposal who nonetheless expressed her concern that the government maintain that light touch, said of today's vote, "It's our third bite at the apple and we must get it right," referring to past attempts to pass net neutrality, and an admission of how difficult it has been.

Jessica Rosenworcel, whom Chairman Wheller noted had been an active proponent of the proposal, spoke briefly but proudly about the moves being made by the FCC, referring to the internet as "our printing press, our town square," and saying that the proposal represented the FCC's responsibility to protect the free foundation of the internet and the internet economy. She also called the FCC's decision-making process "democracy in action."

Chairman Wheeler spoke last, keeping his remarks relatively brief but pointed. Expressing his immediate thanks to the 4 million people who sent comments into the FCC over the proposal, he said in no uncertain terms that the issues at stake for the internet and, more to the point, broadband access for all, were too important not to be addressed in the manner contained in the proposal.

"It's too important to allow broadband providers to make the rules," he said without nuance.
He responded with simlar directness to the widespread claims of late that the proposal was, as he put it, "A secret plan to regulate the internet."

"Nonsense!" he replied, adding, "It is no more that than the First Amenment is a plan to regulate speech," to which the packed room erupted in applause.

While some may indeed quibble with his characterization of the First Amendment as a non-regulatory directive by the Founding Fathers, Wheeler made no bones about the fact that the FCC was using what he called "all tools in the toolbox to protect innovators and consumers," and called the proposal's baseline provisions to ban blocking, ensure unfettered access to any lawful content and ban throttling "enforceable bright-line rules" that extend not only to current ISPs but also to future products developed for the internet.

It should also be noted that all three supporters of the proposal expressed special appreciation for utilizing the authorities available to them to bring hardwired and mobile broadband access together under the new proposal, a development that the opponents said was problematic.

Prior to the net neturality vote, the Commission also voted along party lines to limit the authority of state governments to prohibit local municipalities from developing their own broadband networks.

Hemp-Based XTC Get Wet Lubricant Debuts

Posted Feb 26th, 2015 10:19 AM

CARLSBAD, Calif.—Get Wet, a brand new line of personal lubricants, utilizes all-natural ingredients such as hemp seed oil and slippery elm, which are better for your body, the environment and your sex life. 

Their non-toxic formulation is also vegan-friendly and gluten- and cruelty-free, eliminating harmful ingredients that can get in the way.

The line includes five flavor profiles—Berry Moist, Mint Lime Squirt, Juicy Melon, Cinnamon Sugar Drizzle and an unflavored option—all derived from natural ingredients, and free from propylene glycol, parabens, PEGs, or dimethicone, common toxic ingredients found in other lubricants that studies have shown may cause uncomfortable irritations, inflammation, pH imbalance and cancer.

The benefits of Get Wet's all-natural ingredients include:

Hemp Seed Oil Hemp Extract: Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which are moisturizing and soothing to the skin. Known to stimulate the release of nitric oxide (critical for optimal performance).

Slippery Elm: A healthy, sustainable substitute for silicone, Native Americans have used slippery elm for centuries in healing salves for wounds, burns, and skin inflammation. It contains mucilage, a substance that becomes a slick gel when mixed with water.

pH balance: When vaginal pH is unbalanced, odor causing microorganisms can flourish. The harmful chemicals found in other lubricants throw our bodies pH way off balance. Those intimate areas have their own special pH for a reason, so every sexual product you use should match it, which is why Get Wet Chemists carefully selected healthy ingredients that would result in the perfect pH for intimate areas. 

Water based: Get Wet created a water-based lube, which is smooth and long lasting without being sticky, gooey, or downright icky like other oil- or silicone-based products on the market.

Safe for condoms and toys: You can feel at ease knowing that Get Wet lubricants are safe for condoms and will not deteriorate sex toys.

New Studies Bolster Truvada’s Effectiveness in Preventing HIV

New Studies Bolster Truvada's Effectiveness in Preventing HIV

LOS ANGELES—Results from two new studies looking at the effectiveness of Truvada used in a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) regime as a way to reduce the risk of HIV infection have bolstered findings from previous studies that showed promising results from daily use of the drug.

In fact, HealthDay reporter Alan Mozes writes that results from the new studies—"one from Britain and one jointly conducted in France and Canada."—indicate that even non-daily use of Truvada can prevent infection.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The British investigation, called PROUD, involved 500 gay men and seems to reconfirm the effectiveness of standard, once-a-day PrEP," reports Mozes. "That study found that this dosing strategy lowered HIV infection risk by 86 percent among gay men.

"The French/Canadian investigation, called IPERGAY, looked at PrEP taken on a different schedule -- only around the days surrounding a sexual encounter," he added. "It found the same degree of protection -- an 86 percent lower risk for new infection -- among men who took two Truvada pills anytime between 2 and 24 hours prior to having sex with another man, followed by another two pills 24 and 48 hours after sex."

Despite those results, which were presented Tuesday at the annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend a conservative regime for the moment; specifically, the daily use of Truvada.

Still, Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD & TB Prevention, did say of the new results, "CDC welcomes the findings presented today by the IPERGAY and PROUD teams, which provide additional evidence of the power of PrEP to reduce the risk of HIV infection."

Mozes added, "Mermin said it is not clear if the approach of only taking PrEP in the days before and after sex will work in all situations. He noted that the strategy was only tested in men who were having frequent sex (an average of 10 times per month, and eight partners every two months).

"So, in reality," he continued, "that meant that some participants were taking as many as eight pills per week -- actually exceeding the older, once-per-day dosage."

About Truvada's potential for other demographics, Mermin said, "There are also no data on how effective this regimen would be for heterosexual men and women and injection drug users, or on adherence to this relatively complex PrEP regimen outside a trial setting."

While the results from the studies are still considered preliminary, and even though the CDC continues to recomment only daily use of Truvada, Mermin opined that the "IPERGAY findings, combined with other recent research, suggests that even with less than perfect daily adherence, PrEP may still offer substantial protection if taken consistently."

Interestingly, those positive findings were "based on men who were having frequent sex," which pretty much defines the majority of adult performer sexual activity. It's a development that is sure to irk AIDS Healthcare Foundation's Michael Weinstein, a longtime critic of Truvada and wannabe Condom Czar.

"The creative team at Grooby did an amazing job on this box cover," Grooby added. "Just like the movie and cast, it is perfection. This title is also the first that launches Grooby Productions' new big budget story line parody division."

As a measure of the interest this title has generated, the numbers already scheduled to go out the door reflect that Grooby/TWM's distributors are doing an amazing job pre-selling this title.

Apparently, Bill Cosby Isn’t a Proper Subject for Satire—Who Knew?

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Apparently, Bill Cosby Isn't a Proper Subject for Satire—Who Knew?

TWILIGHT ZONE—"Excuse me, Mr. Swift: Did you actually mean it when you suggested that Irish peasants be encouraged to sell their own children as food for the rich, as a solution to the problem of poverty in the early 1700s?"

"We beg your pardon, Mr. Heller, but was there any real basis for your accusing a U.S. Army officer of selling chocolate-covered Egyptian cotton as candy to the troops during World War II?"

"Hey, Krassner: Where do you get off claiming that after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, his VP Lyndon Johnson was discovered standing over his coffin on Air Force One, chuckling—and fucking his throat wound???"

ADVERTISEMENT


In case anyone's confused, all of the above are actual instances of satire—and to this day, there are still folks out there who, unaware of the circumstances surrounding the publishing of such works as A Modest Proposal, Catch-22 and various articles in The Realist magazine, actually took such biting humor seriously, and even mounted public campaigns to attempt to censor those works.

But satire has an incredibly long history, dating back at least to ancient Greece, where in 411 B.C., the playwright Aristophanes penned his anti-war play Lysistrata, whose plot had women refusing to fuck their soldier husbands until they ended the Peloponnesian War. It was considered satire in its day—but then, in 2003, a group of women known as The Lysistrata Project got together for readings of the play worldwide as a peace protest on the eve of the Iraq War. Other satirical works, some of them very dark, came from such renowned authors as Aldous Huxley (Brave New World), Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451), Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange) and Terry Southern (The Magic Christian).

Perhaps Will Ryder isn't quite in a league with those (and several other) satirical luminaries, but the fact is, he's got a knack for taking people and events in the news and creating satirical XXX-rated movies around them—and his latest offering is raising the blood pressure of a few of the Usual Suspects.

"Will Ryder had already made two Cosby Show-inspired porn films," noted Theo Merz of UK's The Telegraph, "but this one, which sought to turn women’s alleged trauma into a masturbatory aid, crossed a line...  But when did this trend, for spoofing films and current events in adult films, emerge? Can it continue, or will the more distasteful of the examples above stain the whole genre (further than it already is, in its current splattered state)?"

Still, much of Merz's article seemed to go out of its way to undercut that put-down, with sex columnist Nichi Hodgson commenting, "I think perhaps we’re just talking more about this now because there's always a lag between a porn trend and a discussion about it. You only have to look at the success of porn production companies which specialize in parody to see that it's here to stay—and has a vast viewership.

"Take the success of [Who's] Nailin' Paylin," she added. "If sex is power, then you can certainly undercut power with sex. We might underestimate the value of sexual lampooning when it occurs in an adult [context], but it's actually an old art form. Think Chaucer, Thomas Carew or the Earl[] of Rochester and their bawdy verse insulting the nobility by casting them as the crassest fornicators."

Hmmm... "crass fornicators," eh? Could that include rapists? Hodgson doesn't say.

But The Telegraph's article was kind compared to Jenny Kutner's on Salon.com.

"I've said it before and I'll say it again: rape isn't funny," said Ms. States-The-Obvious. "Sexual assault is not a situation that deserves to be taken lightly, nor is it one that needs to be; it already isn’t taken seriously enough. But there are those who would disagree with me—specifically one hilarious garbage human adult film director, who has decided the allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and raped nearly two dozen women might make for some inspired porn." [Strike-through in original]

Of course, Ryder's movie isn't about those women; it's about a formerly highly respected comedian, a so-called champion of family values, who perhaps hasn't lived up to his own image of himself—but to be sure, we'll have to see how his prosecution, if it ever takes place, turns out.

"To portray fantasies about nonconsensual sex in porn is one thing," Kutner concluded. "But to actively attempt to make light of real women's stories of sexual violation for profit and for fun is another thing entirely. It's something that should probably make us rethink what it means for humanity when that Internet adage—'if something exists, someone will make a porn out of it'—rings so sickly true."

While we haven't seen Ryder's effort, which will hit stores on March 17, we strongly doubt that it "make[s] light of real women's stories of sexual violation." More likely, it will shine a light on the disconnect between Cosby's public image, which he's worked years to perfect, and the reality of those very women's allegations against him. And if it produces some uncomfortable laughter, well, that's exactly satire's role.

The Daily Dot's EJ Dickson also picks up on "Rule 34" to bash Ryder's effort, claiming that,

"It seems both impossible and unwise to attempt to bring levity to a 'situation' that involves more than 20 women saying they were drugged and sexually assaulted. Nonetheless, basic decency having eluded him, Ryder produced Puddin' My Dick Where It Don't Belong, the third movie in the Not the Cosbys XXX trilogy. Detroit comedian Thomas Ward, who bears a striking resemblance to Cosby, plays the actor-turned-alleged-rapist.

"It's unclear if Puddin' My Dick Where It Don't Belong will actually attempt to recreate the sexual assault allegations against Cosby, or if it'll just ruin your childhood by showing Theo and Denise having a threeway with Cockroach," Dickson continued. "Either way, it wouldn't be the first time that porn tried to stay relevant by ripping a story from the headlines to utterly tasteless effect. ... Memo to porn directors: Lay off the insulting attempts at social commentary and stick to 10-minute, narrative-free blowjob clips instead."

See, for Dickson, porn should just get you off, period. Fuck characterization, dialog, plot, art direction, music, even humor—and most especially humor about current events! Take that, Lee Roy Myers, Axel Braun and Andre Madness! No one wants to laugh while they're pulling their puds—and we're sure your sales show it!

We called Ryder's attention to The Telegraph's article, and he had a few choice words on the subject of satire, parody... and cluelessness:

"I think it quite odd that this UK writer as well as a number of others, including the great and talented Monica Foster, opine that just because I have a new Cosby movie coming out called Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong that it immediately is a put-down to the women that allegedly have suffered under the spell (and spiced rum) of Bill Cosby. 

"Could it be possible that I am making fun of Bill Cosby and going as far as defending the women to some degree? Of course it is not possible in their eyes because I am a filthy pornographer that knows nothing other than to hit the lowest common denominator rather than turn the tables on a once-highly regarded cultural icon and put a sharp elbow in his rib.  I was looking for a Manson reference in the story but it never went there but I am flattered that the writer spelled my name correctly."

Pictured: The cover of Will Ryder's forthcoming parody, plus the tank full of shit into which British nobles jump searching for the pound notes Peter Sellers has stirred into it, from The Magic Christian.

XRCO Announces 2015 Hall of Fame Inductees

XRCO Announces 2015 Hall of Fame Inductees

LOS ANGELES—The X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) today announced the latest additions to its Hall of Fame. This year's class of nine adult industry luminaries includes classic performers, pioneering filmmakers, a long time friend of the industry and the father of one of last year's inductees. Induction will take place at the 2015 XRCO Awards, which will be held in Los Angeles in April.  
 
Director Jeff Mullen, aka Will Ryder, has been in the adult industry for more than two decades. His work on some of the more memorable XXX soundtracks was only the beginning. Director of more than 120 adult movies, Mullen is perhaps best known for his work in the porn parody genre. From his award-winning Not the Bradys franchise to last year's XRCO winner as Best Parody (Comedy), Grease XXX: A Parody, Mullen's impact on the genre is unmistakable.
 
Stoney Curtis has directed more than 300 adult movies in his career. His early work for Elegant Angel included Sticky Fingers and Filthy Attitudes, as well as several volumes of the successful Cumback Pussy series. From there, Stoney went on to be the driving force behind Lethal Hardcore and Celestial Productions. Known best for his beautifully shot gonzo scenes, Curtis has directed such series as Hot Bods & Tail Pipes, Seduced by a Real Lesbian and Swallow Every Drop.
 
Two blondes and a brunette make up the female performer trio joining the hall this year. 1980s cutie turned experienced MILF Karen Summer is inducted even as her comeback is in full effect. Most famous for her record-setting gangbang efforts, Houston gets the Hall call this year. Versatile and beautiful Melissa Hill rounds out this trio. Melissa is considered by many adult critics as one of the most underrated stars in adult cinema history. Her acting performances are legendary and her good looks make her a perfect addition to the XRCO Hall of Fame.
 
"It was difficult narrowing down the ladies to be inducted, as many from past years are long overdue," XRCO chairman "Dirty" Bob Krotts said. "This year we went with Karen Summer, who still has what it takes to get Bill Margold excited. Also going in are two fan and industry favorites: legendary performers Houston and wacky and delightful AVN Award winner Melissa Hill."
 
Last year award winning director Axel Braun was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame. This year, Axel's father Lasse Braun joins him. Director of 1970s erotic cinema classics French Blue and Body Love, Lasse was a pioneer in the industry.
 
"My biggest regret regarding Lasse Braun is that he passed on barely a few days before we could make this announcement about the inductees of the XRCO Hall of Fame," Krotts expressed. "I was unaware of his illness, and wish the best to Axel and his family during this sad time. Lasse's legacy, as evident by Axel's firm position in the adult industry, will continue."
 
Finally, Seymore Satin joins the Hall of Fame class as a special friend of the industry. Since 2003 Seymore has hosted Porn Star Karaoke every week at Sardo's in Burbank.
 
The complete list of 2015 XRCO Hall of Fame inductees is as follows:
 
Jeff Mullen
Stoney Curtis
Houston
Melissa Hill
Jim Dawson
Lasse Braun
John Seeman
Karen Summer
Seymour Satin
 
The exact time, date and location of the 2015 XRCO Awards Show will be announced soon.
 
XRCO would like to thank it's 2014 sponsors Vivid, Wicked, Evil Angel, IAFD, Axel Braun Productions, Girlfriends Films, Jules Jordan Video, Glamor Girl and Pipeline Multimedia.
 
Sponsorship opportunities for 2015 are still available. Contact db@xrco.com for more information.
 
Visit www.XRCO.com for more information or follow the organization on Twitter @XRCOAwards.

Asian Porn Performer ‘Comes Out’ as UC Berkeley Law Student

Asian Porn Performer 'Comes Out' as UC Berkeley Law Student

LOS ANGELES—In its headline today, SFist.com turns the world on its head when it frames the brief post, Porn Star Jeremy Long Comes Out As UC Berkeley Law Student." Normally, it's the other way around—the law student gets outed for making porn—but not with today's youth! Long, a well-hung newbie with about 18 scenes under his dick for AsianSchlong.com, sees the world through a refreshing porn-accepting lens.

ADVERTISEMENT


When asked during a recent interview with ampedasia.com if his classmates know about the porn, Long, now in his second year at the respected law school, replied, "Well I’m a very open person so I’ve never made an attempt to hide it (which nowadays would be futile anyways given that so many people watch porn). But Boalt Hall [what UC Berkeley’s Law School is called] is a uniquely awesome place with amazing people. It’s what really sets us apart from other schools. All of my friends there have been extremely supportive. There is a large Asian student body, and a general culture of openness and progression, so most people at my school think what I’m doing is great."

Driving that point home, his school paper, The Daily Californian, today posted an interview with Long with the decidedly non-judgmental headline, "UC Berkeley law student, porn star talks balancing school and work."

He also got some exposure on the local CBS affiliate in San Francisco, which asked him whether his parents know about his extracurricuar activities. To that one he said no, adding that he does not expect them to find out.

“Luckily they’re outside any circles of exposure that would lead to that," he said.

We'll see about that one. In the meantime, Long, who took his first name from NBA sensation Jeremy Lin, says he remains proud to be a role model.

“I’m very passionate about representing Asian males in media," he told CBS reporter Joe Varquez. "I think adult film is one of the most important areas for us to work on."

Spoken like a true millennial!

The Mansion Family' Evolves the Genre

VALENCIA, Calif.—The evolution of gonzo porn is underway, as director B. Skow takes hardcore sex to another level in Skow for Girlfriends FilmsA Gonzo Story: The Mansion Family. In the movie, B. Skow manipulates the standard gonzo formula to emphasize the genre’s strengths, without detracting from the enjoyment of the sex. A Gonzo Story is now shipping on DVD and will release Friday.

The all-new, hardcore sex-fest from the noted director marks the beginning of a new chapter for gonzo adult entertainment. In the film, B. Skow incorporates traditional elements of gonzo, while removing aspects he feels detracts from the experience.

“I want fans to get the positive cinematic elements of gonzo and the intimate nature of the sex, without the distraction of the director and soundtrack.” B. Skow said. “It’s just a different way to watch a girl move, talk, and show her body in a gonzo style format hidden within an interesting little story”

A Gonzo Story: The Mansion Family brings together rising stars Jodi Taylor, Maddy O’Reilly, Aaliyah Love, and Kassondra Raine in four vignettes of hardcore sex. The cast includes Mr. Pete, Tommy Pistol, Toni Ribas, and Ramon Nomar.

Filmed with a mixture of handheld and static cameras, the movie features four stories about the sex-crazed Mansion Family.

Newcomer Kassondra Raine gives a standout performance in A Gonzo Story, prompting B. Skow to feature her prominently on the movie’s cover. “I was very happy with the performances all the girls brought to this movie, but Kassondra Raine especially caught my attention,” admitted B. Skow. “Her sex scene was so intense that everyone on set was blown away. She is one of those rare performers who loves sex as much as she loves the attention from the camera.”

A Gonzo Story: The Mansion Family will release on DVD February 27. To view the hardcore trailer and box art, click here.

Girlfriends Films’ president Moose is excited to introduce A Gonzo Story, and said, “B.Skow works incredibly hard to produce original and creative porn and that’s why his titles are the most pre ordered of any brand we distribute.

Kirkus Reviews Gives ‘The Art Of The Pimp’ A Big Thumbs Up

'Those seeking depictions of graphic sex and the ins and outs of prostitution will dig Hof's salacious memoir'—Kirkus Reviews 2/24/2015

Kirkus Reviews Gives 'The Art Of The Pimp' A Big Thumbs Up

Posted Feb 24th, 2015 05:59 PM

Kirkus Reviews, the well-respected critical book review service, has given the new Dennis Hof prostitution bio-tome The Art Of The Pimp: One Man’s Search for Love, Sex and Money a major endorsement with a glowing review in its online edition today. Published by Regan Arts ($26.95, including a 32-page full-color comic book insert), The Art Of The Pimp details Bunny Ranch brothel owner Hof’s journey from a broken and broke childhood to becoming the wealthiest, best-known legal pimp in America.

Kirkus Reviews, founded in 1933, reviews over 7,000 book titles a year (in regular print and digital editions), and is known for giving its readers intensely critical and often biting “rip ‘em apart” reviews. As a result, Kirkus is considered by many to be the gold standard for predicting a book’s success, with a positive review sometimes propelling a book to international best-seller status. Kirkus publishes its reviews weeks before a book’s public release date, setting the tone for initial book sales, and later reviews.

The Kirkus review calls The Art Of The Pimp a “sex-drenched memoir” in which Hof “spills his guts about the joys of running a stable of women.” The review notes that “Hof comes across less as a dirty old man—he’s even a bit of romantic, as witnessed by his lifelong pursuit of love—and more a businessman, albeit one who is acutely aware of how and why his business works.” 

The reviewer clearly enjoys the wacky cast of characters that appear throughout The Art Of The Pimp, including “most notably, porn legend Ron Jeremy, who infuses the proceedings with his trademark good-natured sleaze.” And the lively critique concludes, “Those seeking depictions of graphic sex and the ins and outs of prostitution will dig Hof's salacious memoir.”

The Art Of The Pimp will be available worldwide on March 17, 2015 at Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and wherever finer books are sold online and in retail outlets.

Last Chances to See Well-Received ‘Pretty Filthy’ Parody of Porn

Last Chances to See Well-Received 'Pretty Filthy' Parody of Porn

NEW YORK CITY—AVN previously alerted XXX fans about Pretty Filthy, a new off-Broadway play that opened earlier this month at the Abrons Arts Center in Lower Manhattan—but since the play closes next week, we thought it'd be a good idea to let potential attendees in on the fact that just about every reviewer who's seen it likes it ... a lot.

ADVERTISEMENT


"I wasn't expecting a big, jolly, laugh out loud Broadway style musical when I went to see The Civilians' new show about the porn industry, Pretty Filthy, at the Abrons Arts Center, but that's exactly what I got—red curtain and all," began Robin Schatell for TheLowDownNY.com. "I don't think I've ever seen a more human look into the 'adult entertainment' industry. I can't believe I am saying these things together, but I left having feelings for porn stars; they are real people after all—and I'm sure that was the point."

The play's characters generally have recognizable names—possibly a bit too recognizable, since one woman is "Sunny Lane" and one guy is "Herschel Savage." Plus, it's not too difficult to suss out the origins of some others, like Georgina Congress, "whose star rose during the booming '80s," and who "talks about the ups and downs of life in the pornography industry and reminisces about the days when her cohorts were 'The First Video Stars,' selling millions of videos for $80 a pop," or "Taylor St. Ives," a combo of two popular porn names. And if anyone doesn't see Kelly Holland in the description of a "director who found that pornography paid better than the do-gooding documentaries she was making," they need to read more back issues of AVN.

"Of giggles there are quite a few in Pretty Filthy," wrote The New York Times' Charles Isherwood. "It's considerably more successful at mining the absurd humor in the porn world, without resorting to sniggering condescension (well, almost never), than fictional plays like Elaine May’s Adult Entertainment or David West Read's The Performers. Still the laughter has a way of sticking in your throat. ... Pretty Filthy does not shy away from exposing the more exploitative aspects of the business and the psychological toll it can take on its players, which they often aren’t aware of until the damage is done."

Isherwood isn't forthcoming about just what that "damage" is, but then again, he hasn't done the research that author Becky Wohl and composer Michael Friedman have, and much as adult doesn't like to admit it, not everyone who made a success in porn has left it to have a life of marriage, kids and puppies, or even a corporate slot with a decent income.

Still, "For a reality-based show about the L.A. porn industry, Pretty Filthy is some seriously good, clean fun," begins Marilyn Stasio's review for Variety. "Under Steve Cosson’s even-handed direction, Pretty Filthy manages to be both entertaining and enlightening about the industry. ... We’re having fun here, but nobody’s actually making fun of anyone—which is precisely what makes this show so enjoyable and its characters so endearing."

That's pretty much what the New York Post's Elisabeth Vincentelli sees in the play as well.

"The most wholesome musical in town happens to be about porn," her review begins. "Despite its explicit language (not to mention catchy ditties about things like 'Waiting for Wood'), Pretty Filthy is winningly guileless—almost downright innocent. It’s also frequently hilarious.

"Yet the show has an affecting melancholy undertone, too," she adds. "This is an energetic, can-do musical about trying to make a living in an industry devastated by the Internet. Musicians and journalists everywhere will sympathize."

"In their previous shows the acclaimed experimental theater troupe The Civilians has tackled such topics as climate change, the 1871 Paris Commune and urban redevelopment," begins Frank Scheck's review for the Hollywood Reporter. "So it's hardly surprising that they've decided to address a literally sexier subject with their newest production Pretty Filthy, about the adult entertainment industry. Featuring songs with such titles as 'Squirting 101' and 'Waiting for Wood,' this breezily entertaining musical is, for obvious reasons, likely to become this innovative company's most popular offering yet.

"Definitely not for prudes, the show is indeed pretty filthy. But it's also pretty damn fun," he concludes.

In fact, just about the only reviewer who doesn't like it is Vulture.com's Jesse Green.

"This [musical] is basically the one-shot effectiveness of porn itself, but not in a form-follows-function way," Green states. "Rather, the Civilians describe Pretty Filthy as 'inspired by a tradition of classic musicals about show business.' I'm not sure which musicals they are referring to. The ones worth being inspired by—take your pick among Gypsy, Follies, Cabaret, A Chorus Line, and many others—are musical dramas built not just on universal themes but on individual character. Drama results from the intersection of the two. Pretty Filthy, by its nature, has almost no drama at all. Rather, it's episodic, with very little cumulative power, because except for [main character] Becky you usually don't know whether you’re following a character you’ve already met or meeting a new one. The seven performers, several of whom are excellent at this sort of thing, play at least 30 parts."

Anyway, it appears that anyone who lives in New York City or its environs and who's a fan of adult entertainment will be missing a bet if they don't see this show before it closes on March 1.

HIV+ Airman Acquitted of Aggravated Assault for Exposing Partners

HIV+ Airman Acquitted of Aggravated Assault for Exposing Partners

WICHITA, KS—Congrats, armed services personnel: Thanks to the U.S. military's highest court, being HIV-positive and failing to inform your partners of that fact before you have sex with them is no longer "aggravated assault" under the Uniform Code of Military Justice!

In a case whose decision was revealed yesterday, David J.A. Gutierrez, a Technical Sergeant for the U.S. Air Force, had his conviction for aggravated sexual assault overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, though it found him guilty of the lesser included offense of "assault consummated by battery."

ADVERTISEMENT


According to the opinion, Gutierrez and his wife were swingers, but while Gutierrez was stationed in Italy in 2007, he was diagnosed with having contracted the  HIV virus, and was ordered by his commanding officer to, among other things, "verbally inform sexual partners that [he is] HIV positive" and to "use proper methods to prevent the transfer of body fluids during sexual relations, including the use of condoms providing an adequate barrier for HIV (e.g. latex)."

Gutierrez failed to obey either order, and in fact actually misinformed at least two sexual partners, who testified at his trial, as to his HIV status. Those partners, both swingers themselves, came across a document revealing Gutierrez's HIV status and informed some other members of the swinging community. The information also came to the attention of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), which questioned Gutierrez's wife about their swinging activities, and eventually recommended that Gutierrez be charged with aggravated assault.

Trouble is, the government's medical expert, Dr. Donna Sweet, testified at trial that while having oral or vaginal sex while wearing a condom posed virtually no threat, nor did non-condomized oral sex, she was less than explicit about vaginal sex without a condom.

"It's difficult to have a lot of evidence" of HIV transmission," Dr. Sweet testified. "But the quote is that it is somewhere between 10 and 20 positives per 10,000 encounters. That's sort of the high-end. There are other people that would say 1 out of 10,000 to 1 out of 100,000 given encounters. ... [I]f you [have sex] two or three nights a week then you’ve got a lot of exposure even though it's a relatively low risk.... But somewhere between 1 and 10 per 10,000 exposures would become infected."

Based on that testimony, the appeals panel decided that since the expert had put the chances of HIV transmission during any single encounter at 1-in-10,000 to 1-in-100,000, it decided that even if they accepted the prosecution's estimate of the risk of 1-in-500, that level of HIV exposure did not meet the standard under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), which requires that the assault be committed with "a dangerous weapon or other means or force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm." [Emphasis added]

It's that "likely" that led the Court of Appeals to vacate the aggravated assault conviction—and in the process, to overrule two precedential cases. In the first, United States v. Joseph, the appeals court in 1993 found that, "the question is not the statistical probability of HIV invading the victim’s body, but rather the likelihood of the virus causing death or serious bodily harm if it invades the victim’s body. The probability of infection need only be more than merely a fanciful, speculative, or remote possibility." The current court found that that standard had only been applied to HIV cases, with "likely" needing a greater probability of injury occurring than the facts here represent.

The second overturned case is United States v. Klauck, where the appeals panel in 1997 concluded that "[t]he fact that a male uses a condom during sexual intercourse is not a defense to [aggravated] assault." Again, the panel credited Dr. Sweet's testimony that transmission though a condom was extremely unlikely, thus finding that the Klauck court's finding of guilt could not be sustained.

"[W]e conclude that HIV transmission is not the likely consequence of unprotected vaginal sex," the appeals panel stated. "This is so because, in law, as in plain English, an event is not 'likely' to occur when there is a 1-in-500 chance of occurrence. As a result, Appellant’s conviction for aggravated assault by engaging in unprotected vaginal sex is legally insufficient."

What the court did convict Gutierrez of is the lesser included offense of "assault consummated by battery," ruling that under the UCMJ, Gutierrez had committed "bodily harm" on his sex partners, that term being defined as "any offensive touching of another, however slight," with the court noting that "Appellant's conduct included an offensive touching to which his sexual partners did not provide meaningful informed consent."

 The ruling "effectively ended the prosecution of cases in the military that allege the likelihood of grievous injury merely upon the diagnosis that a service member has been diagnosed with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and who engages in intercourse without their partner's knowledge of HIV determination," analyzed attorney Kevin McDermott.  "It's not just a technicality; they actually overturned two prior court precedents that supported these prosecutions."

The Court of Appeals decision can be found here.

Reddit Adds ‘Involuntary Nudity’ Section to Privacy Policy

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Following notification, Reddit will expedite" the removal of content featuring nudity, sexual excitement or any act of sexual conduct posted without consent.

CYBERSPACE—In a move that drew an "It's about damn time!" reaction from The Verge, Reddit announced today, in an update to its Privacy Policy, that will soon begin to expedite the removal of any "link to a photograph, video, or digital image of you in a state of nudity or engaged in any act of sexual conduct" that has been posted without consent.

ADVERTISEMENT


The new policy reads:

reddit is committed to your privacy. If you believe that someone has submitted, without your permission, to reddit a link to a photograph, video, or digital image of you in a state of nudity or engaged in any act of sexual conduct, please contact us (contact@reddit.com), and we will expedite its removal as quickly as possible. reddit prohibits the posting of such content without consent.

The change did not happen on its own. As The New York Times' Mike Isaac explained, despite a well-earned reputation for "letting its users govern themselves" that resulted in "an outpouring of user-generated content—for better or, sometimes, for worse—that attracts nearly 160 million regular users to the site," Reddit's very permissiveness forced today's change.

A few highly publicized incidents brought unwanted attention to the site and its lack of parental controls. "A few years ago," writes Isaac, "Michael Brutsch created a large sub-community called 'Jailbait' dedicated entirely to posting and trading photos of underage girls." As well, he adds, the site "was embroiled in a scandal last Fall after hackers stole nude photos of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and posted them to online message boards, including Reddit."

Changes were clearly afoot following "a series of changes over the last year, including the departure of its chief executive and a fresh $50 million round of venture capital." Some sort of writing was discernable on the wall.

Still, as a user-generated-content site dependant for its survival on its continuing eligibility as a Section 230 ISP in good standing, despite the language above that espressly prohibits "the posting of such content without consent," the "prohibit" part of the equation is enforced only after "such content" has been posted, and only if it is noticed and then reported as having been posted without the consent of people depicted in it. Fom the language used by Reddit in its policy, it also appears to be the case that consent would also be required of performers in commercial porn posted to the site.

The new policy does not say if there will be any repercussions for those who post the prohibited content, but in a separate comment, the company promises to "share how often these takedowns occur in our yearly privacy report."

Team Reddit, in response to last year's celebrity hack, admits that it "missed a chance to be a leader in social media when it comes to protecting your privacy," but insists that it is "leading the way among our peers when it comes to your digital privacy," and adds that it considers the new policy, which goes into effect March 10, to "be one more step in the right direction."

It will be interesting to see how this new policy unfolds, especially in light of Google's more divisive decision to impose far more restrictive polcies on Blogger sexual content. Both ostensibly need to find a balance between controlling illegal or abusive behavior on their networks and still maintain what is at least perceived to be a "hands-off" policy regarding content. The way each is going about it seems to be night and day. Reddit appears to appreciate sexual expression, while Google appears to tolerate it only to the extent to which it can maintain its Section 230 status and still make some revenue through its own promotion or peddling of terabites of free porn.
