Bad Sex Awards

FRENCH TO OUTLAW SEX WORK?

France’s ruling Socialist Party has tabled new legislation aimed at criminalising paying for sex. If the legislation goes through, anyone found guilty could face a fine of €1,500 and be required to attend an “awareness” course on prostitution. The magazine Causeur has started a protest campaign called “Touche pas a ma Pute!” (Hands off my Tart/Bitch!), led by writer Frederic Beigbeder. Beigbeder condemned the government for trying to “decree norms for desire and pleasure” and the campaign has claimed that the proposed law seeks to control women, not liberate them. The Socialist Party has hit back, claiming the campaign’s real aim is the preservation of “male domination and female submission”.

Many who work with prostitutes also oppose the bill; they fear that the law will drive the sex trade further underground making workers more vulnerable to exploitation. It is estimated that up to 90 percent of France’s 20,000 prostitutes are foreign nationals and one of the aims of the new legislation is to ‘tackle sex trafficking’ – for which many will read ‘oppose immigration’ – and forced prostitution.

SURVEY SAYS BISEXUALITY NOT REAL

This one will anger many and rightly so. A study by the University Of Pittsburgh found that heterosexual men and women have serious doubts about the legitimacy of bisexuality as a sexual orientation. Researchers administered a 33-question survey to an online sample of 1,500 adults and found that heterosexual men were the most likely to cast doubt on the existence of bisexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation – but straight women, gay men and lesbians had similar negative feelings. According to the authors, the study confirms the “prejudice, stigma and discrimination” faced by the bisexual community.

ASHLEY MADISON SUED

Ashley Madison, the website specialising in promoting extramarital affairs, is being sued by a former employee for work related injuries. Doriana Silva has claimed that typing up hundreds of fake female profiles for the site has left her with permanent damage to her wrists. She is seeking a whopping $20 million claiming that the company unjustly enriched themselves at her expense and another $1 million in punitive and general damages. Ashley Madison charges men to access the site but women join for free (can this be legal??) The fact that the company uses fake profiles to separate men from their money is not at all surprising.

SEXTON’S MISCELLANY BAD SEX AWARDS

The shortlist for the Literary Review’s 22nd Annual Bad Sex In Fiction has been announced and there are indeed some (cringe)-worthy entrants this year. Past winners have included famed writers including Sebastian Faulk, Norman Mailer and AA Gill. The purpose of the prize is “to draw attention to the crude, badly written, often perfunctory use of redundant passages of sexual description in the modern novel, and to discourage it” – but it doesn’t seem to be working.

There is some terrible literary sex going on. This extract from Jonathan Grimwood’s The Last Banquet is the cheesiest (ho ho) sex scene you’re ever likely to read: “In my mouth her nipple turned from strawberry to deep raspberry but the taste I wanted was missing. I had sweat and what had to be soap from washing her dress or herself. Reaching behind me, I found the Brie and broke off a fragment, sucking her nipple through it.”

Here is the full shortlist:

House of Earth by Woody Guthrie

Motherland by William Nicholson

The City of Devi by Manil Suri

Secrecy by Rupert Thomson

The World Was All Before Them by Matthew

Reynolds

My Education by Susan Choi

The Victoria System by Eric Reinhardt

The Last Banquet by Jonathan Grimwood

Smaller Balls, Better Dad

VOICE ACTIVATED SEX TOYS
Sex toy company Nalone has released a range of nine sex toys that respond to the user’s moans – the louder and faster you are, the faster the toy vibrates keeping time with your responses. Whisper and the toy responds slightly, while loud noises or music will produce strong vibrations. The toys use touch technology and electro magnetic pulses to allow users to customise their vibrating patterns. Clever!

 

SMALL BALLS, BETTER DAD

I’m not sure how anyone is going to feel about this, but Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia has released a study that found that men with small testicles make better fathers and are more involved in their children’s upbringing. The research team used MRI scans to measure the volume of the testicles of fifty-five fathers and the men – and the mothers of their children answered questions to determine how hands-on they are as dads. The blokes with smaller testicles got the best parenting scores and were seen as the most nurturing. Fifty-five men is not exactly a huge sample group, and other academics have described the result as “very surprising.” The Emory University researchers did note that being involved with your children is largely a matter of choice, however.

 

SEX LESSONS FOR CHINESE WOMEN

Be glad you have access to hundreds of sex advice books if you need them: women in China are apparently so starved for sexual information that they are willing to pay hundreds of dollars to learn how to have sex. A number of sex coaches are said to be tapping the Chinese market and reports say that the demand for information is high. Many young people leave school without even cursory sexual education, and conservative social mores means people are reluctant to talk about sex publicly. Studies seem to confirm this: in 2010, a report from Peking University claimed that half of sexually active unmarried people in China have unprotected sex; another study found that only 9 percent of Chinese know how to put a condom on properly. Yikes!

 

SEXTON’S MISCELLANY – PORN FOR WOMEN

Dusk TV, an adult cable station, held its first “Porna Awards” this Saturday – porna being their word for porn aimed at female viewers. A panel of than more 1,700 women watched and rated porn films and these seven were nominated:

Your Orgasm Inside Me – Dane Jones

Cabaret Desire – Erika Lust

The Kiss – Kendo

Aphrodite Superstar – Candida Royalle

A Taste Of Joy – Petra Joy

Don Juan’s Therapist – Nica Noelle

Skin. Like. Sun. – Jennifer Lyon Bell

Petra Joy’s A Taste Of Joy won the overall award. Joy uses non-professionals, often couples, in her work and makes women’s pleasure central to the storyline.

Sexton’s Miscellany: Ten Mainstream ‘Porn’ Films

What Culture has compiled a list of mainstream films that, they argue, “are really porn”. Interestingly, all of these films are old, and the most contemporary one was made nine years ago. Has contemporary cinema become more conservative or has the spread of broadband meant we prefer to watch erotica – or porn – in our own homes? But if you like to get your thrills with a storyline, however weak, these may be the films for you.
Romance (1999)
Kids (1995)
Vampyros Lesbos (1971)
Showgirls (1994)
9 Songs (2004)
9 1/2 Weeks (1986)
Salo (1975)
The Blue Lagoon (1980)
In The Realm Of The Senses (Ai no corrida) (1976)
Caligula (1979)

PORN HABITS

It’s not surprising that different people are turned on by different things. Using search data from a number of adult streaming sites, Porn MD has found we tend to prefer people who are share our nationality – Russians prefer Russian porn, the Brits like British porn and so forth. Which is odd… But perhaps there is always the hope that you’ll spot someone you know.

More surprising were preferences that were confined to a region or country. In Romania and Hungary “mom and son” porn is popular; Icelanders like “teenagers fucking”; and the Lebanese frequently search for “shit orgy”…

Octomom porn

Nadya Suleman, better known as the Octomom, has been signed by Vivid Entertainment to make a porn video. However Suleman has nixed the idea of starring alongside another performer and has opted to do a self-pleasure shoot. Steven Hirsch, a producer with Vivid, allegedly offered Suleman as much as a $1 million to perform sexually explicit scenes, but she rejected the offer. Hirsch believes her solo act is unlikely to sell as well as an explicit porn movie, but that they are expecting a hit nonetheless as people will be drawn to the comedic element of seeing the Octomom get her jollies.

Egypt to ban porn

Pornographic websites are to be banned in Egypt following a court ruling that adult material is immoral and that society should be protected from it. A similar ruling was given three years ago, prior to the ousting of Hosni Mubarak, but was not enforced. Human rights activists argue that the proposed ban is a violation of freedom of information, while internet specialists note that it is almost impossible to implement. A similar ruling was overturned by Tunisa’s highest court in March.

Playbody’s childlike vajay-jays

A new study examining the representation of women’s vaginas in Playboy centrefolds has concluded that hairless genitalia resembling those of a prepubescent female is most common. No surprises there. However the authors have concluded that this could put girls at risk by sexualising childlike physical characteristics. Playboy often includes childhood photographs of its centrefold models which, warn the authors, intensifies the connection between children and sexuality.
