Bush is Back!

Hot Bush

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.

Tweetin’ T&A

Twitter @mrpinksdotcom

Over the past five-or-so years we’ve seen a few breakout websites that have either directly or indirectly changed the face of porn. One is clearly a boon, while the other is a more complicated bedfellow. Twitter has assisted pornstars in breaking down the barriers between them and their fans, allowing for 24/7 contact with those that made their career, and it has been embraced by almost every pornstar this porn-filled noggin can think of! Hit up a list of pornstar Tweeters and you’ll soon enough find photos of Katie St. Ives wearing nothing but a fedora and a cigarette or Bobbi Starr’s blog posts addressing the state of the adult industry; both examples of the stellar additions to the porn world made possible by Twitter.

The other site? Well, that’d be any one of those XXX YouTube clones popping up faster than you can complain about their horrible video quality and blatant copyright infringement. (More on those sites and their impact on the industry here.)

Something Novel, Something New

ane 2011

Later this week porn professionals will descend upon sunny Pasadena, California to showcase their freshest wares and latest innovations in the realm of adult pleasure at the 2011 AVN Novelty Expo. Hosting more than a hundred exhibitors, from ASLAN Leather to XMYBOX, the ANE is when and where the makers of the world’s finest vibrators, dildos, pocket pussies, lubricants, condoms, lingerie, aphrodisiacs, sex furniture, lotions, and self-lubricating vibrating studded cock-rings gather ‘round the campfire to unleash their original erotic creations upon the salivating men and women of the adult industry. Also hosting some of the industry’s notable personalities discussing everything from the materials used to make your favorite dildos to the role bloggers and reviewers play in the current state of the adult industry. (Everyone’s favorite Asian BBW pornstar, Kelly Shibari, is speaking at that one. Feel like adding another reviewer/blogger/co-panelist, Kelly? Do ya?)

 Those in the LA area interested in attending better act quick. Proceedings begin on the morning of Thursday July 7th, peak with The “O” Awards on Friday night, and continuing on Saturday morning with a floor show that must be seen to be believed.
