What started out as a “device for discreet semen collection” patented by designer Steve Shubin in 1998 just keeps growing in popularity and influence. The Fleshlight, the revolutionary male sex toy treasured by horny guys the world over, recently announced that it intended to move beyond simple novelty manufacturing and into live content production by partnering with acclaimed streaming website Live Gonzo. This partnership, along with a few new high-profile Fleshlight Girls and the launch of a Pirates line of pocket pussies developed with Digital Playground, proves that Fleshlight is not a company willing to sit idly by and watch its customers become bored with the same old product. With limited edition plastic cases “forged in honey and gold” available for the Stoya, Riley Steele, and Jesse Jane models (all are stars of DP’s Pirates feature) and the possibility of adding your own two cents to an interactive Live Gonzo hardcore video broadcast tailored for Fleshlight-augmented viewing, these two innovations would be enough for most sex toy manufacturers; but not for Fleshlight, no sir!
Unveiling a Tori Black model at the tail end of 2010, the Fleshlight folks knew they’d have a tough year ahead. So, like any sensible adult entertainment professionals would, they called on two of porn’s most dazzling performers, each one a multiple AVN Award-winner: the Japanese-American reigning queen of hardcore, Asa Akira, and everyone’s favorite MILF (and clearly the most fuckable of all Sarah Palin impersonators) Lisa Ann. That’s right, folks, for just $79.95 you now have the option of inserting your erection into an elastomeric gel mold that, at least on the outside, looks and feels (almost) exactly like the mouths, pussies, and tight, tight assholes of the incomparable Lisa Ann and Asa Akira. Me, I still beat off the old fashioned way, but with Fleshlight continuing to smash sales records and wow customers, that might change soon enough.
When Washington gets too tough for a pretty blonde who most recently spent time working as an intern for a major political figure, where does she turn? For Sammie Spades, porn was a-callin’. Leaving her post as an intern, Sammie headed to Porn Valley, USA to become a star of the scantily-clad screen. The story of an aide to one of the nation’s highest-ranking public officials leaving politics to suck dick on camera hit TMZ and the world paid attention, for all of fifteen minutes anyway. While Sammie Spades sucks and fucks her way to what I’m sure she hopes is a long and lucrative career in porn, a huge change from a career in Washington, porn already has its resident politically-aspiring cocksucker in Mary Carey.
After campaigning for the seat of Governor of California in 2003’s recall election, and then again in 2005 for Lieutenant Governor, the buxom blonde known professionally as Mary Carey made it clear that her aspirations went far beyond finally working some double-penetration into her performances. Sadly pulling out of the 2005 race to care for her injured mother, Carey has been quiet on the political front ever since. With another presidential election just around the corner, though, perhaps it’s time we were given a candidate we’d all want to get behind.
Ever since the shaved, waxed, or otherwise completely hairless vulva became a pornographic staple, plenty of viewers have longed for the return of that thick tuft of short, curly hair to regain its rightful place at the entry point to a world of physical sensations we can only dream about. The shaved pussy might allow the home viewer more visual access to the inner and outer workings of the female genitalia, but its breakout popularity turned the natural pubic growth into something dirty, unhygienic, undesirable; something, in short, to be overcome. But why? Pubic hair is as natural as can be and can add quite a lot to a sexual encounter.
Take a look at pornstars like Bobbi Starr, Kimberly Kane, Katie St. Ives, and Kristina Rose; all women who have, at one point or another, decided to let their furry flags fly high and proudly sport bushes that look natural, but not unkempt, adding an earth eroticism to their work. Sure, Charley Chase might use her muff to cover up a pelvis tattoo, but she too rocks her pubes in a way that should make shaved girls incredibly jealous.
Even women who’ve moved from blowbangs and anal creampies to the world of “legitimate” entertainment media proudly proclaim their vaginal hirsuteness; Sasha Grey’s unveiling of her pubes on HBO’s Entourage being the perfect example and another sign that, like it or not, the bush is back.
