Taylor Swift buys porn site domains

Taylor Swift buys porn site domains | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Taylor Swift is the proud owner of many enviable items:

Gorgeous kitties, legs that go on forever, seven Grammy’s and err, two porn site domains. The pop goddess has reportedly purchased the rights to two rather questionable websites, TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult so that no one else out there can make money off her name, or porn.

An Adult Search Engine For Adults: Boodigo

An Adult Search Engine For Adults: Boodigo | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Boodigo was created by site operators and content creators who are also experienced search engine users and advertisers, so we have experienced the best and worst that search engines have to offer. In crafting Boodigo, we’ve eliminated the aspects of other search engines that annoyed or troubled us, and emphasized the elements that made search engines such indispensable tools for navigating the Internet in the first place.

Boodigo is designed to return accurate adult entertainment search results for our customers in a secure, private and anonymous environment. Boodigo does not use cookies or other user-tracking technologies to gather information about our users. We aren’t interested in building a “profile” on our users; our core mission is simply to help you find what you’re looking for in a way that’s as efficient, effective and enjoyable as possible. In other words, using Boodigo means finding what you’re looking for without having to worry about what someone else might be finding out about you, at least not from us.

Boodigo also proactively eliminates sites from its responses that are known by us security threats, distributors of malware or perpetrators of fraud, and works with rights-holders to ensure that unlicensed and illegal copies of their creative works are not found in our search results. This helps ensure that when you download content and materials you find through Boodigo, you’re downloading only what you intended to, free of viruses or spyware, and free of intellectual property concerns, too.

Gracie Passette's insight:

You can make sure your adult site is included by adding it here:

Being Yourself: Facebook Gets Personal

Being Yourself: Facebook Gets Personal | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Sex work can be incredibly isolating, and many find solace in connecting with other workers via the internet and, particularly, social media. When sex workers who don't feel comfortable using their legal names are shut out from one of the largest social media platforms in the world, it is a true disservice to those who need community the most.


Cox went on to defend the policy by saying, "It's the primary mechanism we have to protect millions of people every day, all around the world, from real harm." But if Facebook is concerned about protecting people from real harm, it should consider the impact its legal name policy will have on those of us who use pseudonyms to stay safe.

I Spent a Month Living in a Romanian Sexcam Studio | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Webcam studios are to bedroom masturbators what brothels are to Johns. And if the internet had a designated red light district, it would be Romania, where there are currently an estimated 2,000 studios in operation. The cousins’ studio—Kazampo—is the latest addition to that digital den of sin. It’s housed on a Bucharest backstreet in a building that can accommodate up to 11 "models" at a time, all masturbating in the direction of a webcam for lonesome, horny Americans thousands of miles away.

Emily Snow; Model, Photographer and Free Speaker About Sex (NSFW) | Sex Work | Scoop.it

She started out as a phone sex operator, and her work as a model was simply to a way to have more content for her phone sex site. Soon, she loved having her picture taking more than the product she was actually promoting and she decided to pursue that more fully. After she quit the phone sex gig, she found herself with a wealth of knowledge about human sexuality and nothing to do with it, so she partnered with Los Angeles-based painter Jaime Roxx to produces Nocturnal Addictions discussing sex and Houston nightlife.

Tumblr Stumbles, Tries To Right Itself, Banks Left | The Marketing Whore

Tumblr Stumbles, Tries To Right Itself, Banks Left | The Marketing Whore | Sex Work | Scoop.it

On July 16, 2013, Tumblr creator David Karp was on The Colbert Report. During the short interview segment, Karp and host Stephen Colbert discussed a number of issues ~ including the naked, and sometimes fornicating, elephant in the room: porn on Tumblr.

 

...

But then, just two days later, Tumblr instituted a new policy about adult content. Along with the pre-Yahoo sale attempts to exclude search engine indexing of adult Tumblr bogs, Tumblr’s new rules meant that adult-rated blogs and their posts would no longer show up in site tags; the former preventing blogs from being found off-site, the latter keeping blogs from being searched and found on Tumblr itself.

 

Obviously, this lead to quite the reaction from Tumblr users.

Gracie Passette's insight:

What's behind all the changes? (Hint: It smells like money!) Can you trust Karp & Tumblr? (That may depend upon a few things.)

Laura Brown's comment, July 25, 2013 5:00 PM
Adult content is always the wet elephant in the room on any web network. They all let the adult content start, as long as it keeps quiet and no one starts a fuss about it. If anything changes the adult content becomes controversial (even though it was quiet and ignored for years). Kind of an immature attitude. People obviously want porn - we are just supposed to be ashamed of it while telling everyone how natural and good sex is.

SXSW: Adult Industry Faces Struggles To Keep Up With Technology | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Overall, there was an obvious dividing point between the older members of the panel like Kopita and Daughn and the younger panelists of Blue and Lani. While the older panelists were grasping at anything to claim as technological innovation on porn’s part or lamenting the money lost by piracy, the younger panelists discussed that a change in perception of what porn is and how people experience it needs to happen for the industry to thrive.

Tumblr Panic | The Marketing Whore

Tumblr Panic | The Marketing Whore | Sex Work | Scoop.it

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.

Laura Brown's comment, May 24, 2013 11:02 PM
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 WordPress.com as was suggested for other Tumblr bloggers who don't want to wait for Yahoo to drop.

Working The Cocktail Party

Working The Cocktail Party | Sex Work | Scoop.it

The World Wide Web is very much like a cocktail party: You aren't sure who you'll meet, & drinking is optional.

In the realm of the Adult Webmaster, this is especially true. For like most parties, there are always the concerns of under-age attendees, party crashers (hackers), and those dreaded conservative neighbors who may call the cops.

Like any good host (or guest), we must be wise about our guest list ~ we should never tease minors or lure them into our festivities. We ought to do our best to not only be on the look out for the uninvited, but have plans in place in the event we do need to toss someone out as well as repair the damage done by such unwelcome guests. And we should do our best to make sure our party doesn't disturb our neighbors, or otherwise incite them into causing us legal problems. And if one angry person does make the call, we should have all our necessary papers at the ready (2257 etc), so that the interruption doesn't last long.

How Sex on Tumblr Will Change Media | Nerve.com

How Sex on Tumblr Will Change Media | Nerve.com | Sex Work | Scoop.it

American journalism has a beginner's complex when it comes to fucking. Gawking instead of touching, overthinking instead of cozying up, giving tips instead of giving tip. One in five Americans view porn, and between a quarter and a third of all global Web searches are for porn. Yet magazines and newspapers keep sex at a gigantic arm’s length. For an industry stuck at second base (specifically, side boob), there’s finally a foreshadowing of journalism’s sexy coming of age. Thanks to foreigners, porn and women. But mostly porn, in the hands of women.

 

The foreigners are key. Relentless, fast, dismissive of America’s tormented sex drive. Canadian-born, New York-based Vice investigates Swiss brothels, tests out homemade sex toys and runs an entire Not Safe For Work section next to Travel and Tech. Gawker Media, founded by a British-Hungarian, launched, ran and released Fleshbot, a blog with more ass-fucking than “Before Night Falls.” Its Jezebel site is always talking sex and publishes gems like the “March Madness Sex vs. Chocolate” competition, a clever play on the annual month-long U.S. college basketball tournament. (Blow jobs easily beat hangnail fingerbang in the first round.) Ten years ago, Vice and Gawker were considered journalism backwaters. Now they’re valued at $1 billion.

 

Sex should already be everywhere in American journalism. The media are part of a sensual family of artists, singers, musicians, novelists, writers, filmmakers and poets. Every song is about foreplay, fucking or fallout; “Fifty Shades of Grey” is the latest bestseller and a painter’s raison d’etre is the nude. I remember in Dorothy Allison’s “Bastard Out of Carolina,” the leading lady, Bone, masturbates against a tree limb at 12 or 13. That’s honesty you’ll never read in a newspaper, which is ironic, because papers are supposed to reflect the public’s interests. Journalism’s always been tied down by two prude dudes: America, who decided that political gossip and violence stories are more acceptable than naked booties. And advertising, who always bows to political heat or gets up in arms when an ad is placed too close to sex. As if a Chevy is more sacred than fucking. Scram, guy!

 

Then the Internet came, tsunami-style, to rearrange the madness. Conservative as an ism is suddenly floating upside down in a bottomless sea of everyone. Every second, another voice, another layer, another site, a billion times over. The Internet unmoored civilization’s three deepest anchors: Money’s no good here, everything’s free; assault is impossible; and property doesn’t exist. The Web is generally a very  kind place: LOL cats conquered the world without displacing a soul. We get a much more beautiful equilibrium between masculine and feminine tastes, especially when it comes to sex.

 

By 2010, one in every two-and-a-half Web pages was porn. Two years later, hard core is giving way to more sensual porn, women are taking over the director’s chair and sites like Viv Thomas, X-Art and Hegre refine the pace.
