Again, Me With The Sex Work & Feminism Stuff

In I’m A Sex Worker, But I’m Not…, three sex workers, @SiouxsieQJames, @theMickeyMod & @VenusLux, point out how their lives ~ like many sex worker’s lives ~ are contrary to the mythology.

What’s most amazing about this short video is the fact that escorts and porn stars are both included. Like actually together! Normally, as I have noted before in The Great Porn Star ~ Sex Worker Divide, porn stars typically take great efforts to not be included in the sex worker category, instead hiding behind their status as actors and actresses. While this actor/actress distinction has historically protected them from legal prosecution, there are many who prefer the “loftier” terms simply because it elevates them from prostitutes. In other terms, they suffer from whorephobia.

But it’s important to note that in terms of human history, the distinctions between “actress” and “prostitutes” have been few. In fact, for many years, the two terms were interchangeable. (And you can find the history still in the traces of face powder on the vanity!) Today, the Hollywood/Whore meme continues.

Even after actresses managed to get a foothold on the stage, and later film (briefly women ruled at the box office in the 1920s-30s until actresses and women’s roles suffered the most from the The Motion Picture Production Code), they continue to suffer and bemoan their autonomy and inequality. There’s Hollywood’s gender pay disparity, of course. And the continued lack of good and/or leading roles for women, especially for those over a certain age or with visages and body types which are not considered “beautiful” (white). This is often attributed to the power structure in Hollywood, where the true power is held by directors, producers, distribution, etc. ~ which is, largely, made up of (white) men. No wonder so many women in the profession prefer the terms “actor” be applied to their work: so that no gender distinctions & dismissals occur. [Given how much porn stars try to identify as actors and actresses, it should not be such a surprise then that the porn industry is just as gender-screwed (and racist too) as Hollywood.]

Just as actresses struggle to achieve equality with their male counterparts, to maintain the autonomy of their work and their bodies, so do sex workers. In fact, actresses and sex workers are not all that different.

Yet, while many have profited from playing the role of sex worker, many actresses and celebrities have taken to loudly speaking out against decriminalization ~ even when the science doesn’t back up their claims. It is such a shame that our actress sisters do not remember their history, do not see the fact that sex worker rights are women’s rights. The lies about sex work hurt women! And women’s rights are human rights, humanist. Who doesn’t want equality for all?!

Maybe one day, people will see that sex work is just work. There are signs it is happening… Slowly, minds are changing. Ironically, sadly, it is slower to change among women. But there is still hope.

“The Bitch” From “The Stud”

Joan Collins as Fontaine Khaled in The Stud.

The Stud was a 1978 soft-core flick based on the novel written by ~ you guessed it! ~ Jackie Collins.

Enjoy this ~ 5 minute clip montage of the film played to the film’s astonishing-period theme song. Breathlessly sing along, “The Stud, what’s his name, what’s his name!”

To be factually correct about this posts’ title, Collins/Khaled weren’t officially “The Bitch” until the sequel (book and film).

UPDATE:

Here’s the trailer:

Sunday Funnies: Sing Along Edition

The Autoblow 2 has been upgraded to the Autoblow 2 + and there’s a new sing along song to help you learn about the new features. Like the first jingle, also by Chicago-based singer-songwriter David Safran, this catchy little promo is supposed to maximize word of mouth marketing about the masturbator that simulates a blow job. *wink* Just try to un-hear “the Autoblow 2 has been upgraded; it’s a perfect time to be fellated!”

You can find my man’s review of the Autoblow 2 here.

Adventurous Types Less Likely To Make A Stink Over Gas

Whether or not you have those fart sex fantasies, you might be interested in this video shared by the legendary Webwhore, Trixie Fontaine.

In Why Do We Like Our Own Farts? we learn that there are familiarity and evolutionary reasons why we don’t think our own shit stinks. Of course, there’s a whole lot more to know about farts than that. And did you know, that your lack of disgust over farts in general means you are the more adventurous type? Apparently science says it’s true. Whether or not you find farts sexy, however, remains a part of eproctophilia.

You <3 Boobs

Yes, everyone loves boobs. And now, boobs are heart-ing you back.

meagiesx heart-shapped tittoosYou likely may nave notices a stream of heart-shaped areolas on your Twitter timeline or your Tumblr dash. You might have wondered if the photos were photoshopped ~ or, if they were “real”, if the artful hearts surrounding the nipples were the result of cosmetic surgery or tattoos. The answer is they are tit-toos. More precisely, it’s a medical tattooing called micropigmentation. And it’s the same process used for restoring a more natural look after breast surgeries.

The coloration process of “tittooing” on the nipple and areola uses pigment, rather than ink. This is because tattoo ink will eventually turn blue, whereas the pigment, an inorganic iron oxide, allows for a more natural color. And there are various shades to select from. However, these pigments fade faster than inks. Which means the pigments used to color and “shape” the areola and nipple generally needs to be retouched anywhere from a year to six years. So if you opt for such body art or alterations, you likely need to plan on some up-keep.

This video shows just how the process of micropigmentation treatment goes — only in this case, the treatment is to restore color and shape to a patient’s areolae and nipples, not to make the hearts. Video from La Belle Forme, in Glasgow.

For a variation on this theme, Nibbles has a more simplistic line-drawing version of hearts on her breasts. As she explains in this short video, there are some considerations regarding tattoos on the breast ~ including what happens to the shape of the tats when the nipple gets hard.
