Even though many adults in non-monogamous relationships are using condoms, the porn industry has long held that using the prophylactic devices in sex scenes is a buzzkill. And in recent years porn auteurs have argued that laws mandating the use of condoms on XXX sets is a violation of the First Amendment.

Porn Company Labels Anti-Troll Blog A “Fanatical Internet Hate Group”

The nation’s largest source of “pay us or we’ll sue and tell everyone about the porn we say you downloaded” legal threats doesn’t like being talked about on a website for those opposed to so-called copyright trolls, and has gone so far as to describe that site’s users as a “fanatical Internet hate group.” [More]

Social Media To Get Less Sexy As Vine Bans Porn And Most Nudity

While most Vine users only post short, looped videos of their adorable cats, or of them and their friends making funny faces into the camera, there is apparently a subset of Viners who have been using the service to share their most private moments.

What If The Cable Guy In Porn Was From Time Warner Cable?

Before you do any kind of clicking away on the video below, please be aware that the content we’re about to laugh over is totally NSFW by way of some heavy breathing, sexytime noises, bad language and because while there’s no nudity, it looks like the setup for a real porno instead of just a comedy video. So really, NSFW, watch it with headphones on and maybe where no one can see your screen. [More]

Yahoo Doesn’t Think I Should Be Mailing Myself Porn Links

As Yahoo continues to fight for relevance, they’ve made some changes to the e-mail system. We haven’t heard from anyone who actually likes these changes, but customers remain loyal. Reader Raven is one of those customers, and is frustrated because the e-mail system wouldn’t deliver a message that he didn’t think was malicious: just a porn link he had e-mailed to himself. [More]

Vine’s New Age Restriction Notice Ignores The Fact That Liars Can Also Click “OK”

As we noted before, Twitter’s new Vine app has a little bit of a porn problem. As in, it’s all too easy to find six-second pornographic videos, despite the company’s best efforts to make that content hard to find.
