What Silent Porn Star Has Been Reading This Past Week

Apparently Peter Tupper (aka ptupper72) didn’t stop blogging, writing, or researching; he just moved his site. You can now find him at The History of BDSM, where he has an interesting post about 1930s bondage.

In Of Feminism & Inequality In Porn & Sex Work, Gracie hits the nail on the head regarding porn & its history:

Like I said before, feminists and others who struggle for equality, would be wise to look at issues of pay inequality, poverty, and other issues of economic divisions in terms of assessing the prevalence of “male porn.” Women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community can all see how less money means not only less access, but less ability to create demand in the market place. …

Forget that we women make what, 70 cents to the male dollar, leaving us very little disposable income, we are not allowed such services. When women buy a book like 50 Shades, it becomes national headlines, so you can only imagine what would happen if women sought adult entertainment outside the safe confines of the bachelorette party making a visit to see the traveling Chippendales tour. And even then, we’re supposed to laugh and giggle at ourselves, lest we be labeled a Peg Bundy, or worse, risk real life things like the custody of our children. When men use sex services, they can continue to have their lives, their children, their jobs, hold political office, etc. Men will be men, right? But women ~ oh, hell no! Women must be women, non-paid guardians of home and hearth, and only as monogamously sexual as their male partners want them to be. Scarlet letters, remember?

And because one day, this digital age of sex bloggin will be charmingly vintage… Dangerous Lilly started the conversation on sex blogging history; Bacchus at Eros is keeping the conversation alive.
