Why describing romance novels as the only books by, for, and about women is problematic.

Tumblr Panic | The Marketing Whore

Tumblr Panic | The Marketing Whore | Sex Positive |

For adult webmasters and bloggers, the real ruckus started when Tumblr prepared itself for a Yahoo buy-out by appearing to purge itself of adult content. The micro-blogging site did this quite effectively when it dealt a dirty blow to Tumblr users by using robots.txt to exclude the search engines from indexing sites labeled as “adult”. This was reported in accurate detail by Bacchus at the long-respected ErosBlog. (it must be noted that Tumblr does not seem to be using the Robots Meta Tag. Do you know about robots.txt files and Robots Meta Tags?)


This was reported by Bacchus before anyone even had an idea that Yahoo & Tumblr were in talks. Just days later, Bacchus again discussed issues for adult bloggers at Tumblr, i.e. how difficult it became to even search your own Tumblr blog & how to back-up your Tumblr site. By this time, the rumors had become official news: Yahoo had purchased Tumblr.

But that's just the beginning... Probably.

I noticed the difference on Tumblr early on. Links on other sites were leading to missing sites, or sites that just would not load. Where will the adult bloggers go next? Tumblr was a nice, simple place for them the past few years. I don't think they can move to as was suggested for other Tumblr bloggers who don't want to wait for Yahoo to drop.

Rebuilding Playboy: Less Smut, More Money

Rebuilding Playboy: Less Smut, More Money | Sex Positive |
Playboy, now private, in the past few years has outsourced much of its media operations and shed some of the seedier aspects of its business, like its cable-TV channels, to focus on fragrance licensing and other revenue streams.
Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, February 21, 2013 5:37 PM

Lots of stuff in here to ponder... From allegations of abusive behavior by the new CEO, Scoot Flanders, to news-to-me info about Playboy's bottom line being skimpier than a centerfold's outfit.
