.xxx marks the spot

NEW YORK Jan 6, 2007 (AP)— The Internet's key oversight agency has revived a proposal it earlier rejected to create an online red-light district, after adding stronger provisions to prohibit child pornography and require labeling of Web sites with sexually explicit materials.

The use of the proposed ".xxx" domain name would remain voluntary, but any porn sites that choose to use it instead of the more popular ".com" would be subject to the new terms issued by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.
According to another piece on the subject:
Opponents, such as Focus on the Family, say the .xxx domain would legitimatize the industry and expand the amount of pornography on the Internet. "We don't support an effort that would further legitimize an industry that puts out material that we believe is illegal and harmful," said Daniel Weiss, senior analyst for media and sexuality for Focus on the Family. "It has the unintended effect of proliferating pornography on the Internet."
They've got to be kidding. Like the .xxx domain will help pornography proliferate in a way it doesn't already? And if sites are doing something illegal (I assume he's implying use of underage models and actors) then enforce the law.

Nonetheless, I think this is a bad idea. The company that will be registrar for .xxx domains plans to act like a Better Business Bureau, somehow vetting the companies that use it for best practices:
"It would give a space for responsible members of the adult- entertainment community," said Stuart Lawley, chief executive of ICM Registry. "The whole point of this was to encourage a migration to .xxx."
As if porn sites would give up their .com domains rather than just adding .xxx ones.

However, some members of the adult-entertainment industry who make up the Free Speech Coalition are firmly against the domain.

The group proposes the creation of a .kids domain to direct families to child-friendly websites, rather than establishing a .xxx domain to be filtered out.

That sounds like a much better idea. If the idea is to help parents protect children from porn, filtering out everything but this topo-level domain would work. But this plan still requires someone to be the arbiter of who can have those domains and itself raises free speech issues.

How about this: Just continue to let anyone who wants one have any domain they want, do anything legal with it, and let parents pay attention to what their kids are doing.

guess they've never been to flashdancers

First Beaver Spotted in NYC
in 200 Years

Feb 23, 9:57 AM

NEW YORK (AP) - Beavers grace New York City's official seal. But the industrious rodents have not been seen in the flesh here for as many as 200 years - until this week.

Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River on Wednesday. Its twig-and-mud lodge had been spotted earlier on the river bank, but the tape confirmed the presence of the animal itself.

"It had to happen because beaver populations are expanding, and their habitats are shrinking," said Dietland Muller-Schwarze, a beaver expert at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. "We're probably going to see more of them in the future."

Beavers gnawed out a prominent place in the city's early days as a European settlement, attracting fur traders to a nascent Manhattan. The animal appears in the city seal to symbolize a Dutch trading company that factored in the city's colonial beginnings, according to the city's Web site.

But amid heavy trapping, beavers disappeared from the city in the early 1800s, according to the city Parks & Recreation Department.

The beaver that has made its way to the Bronx appears to be a male, several feet (a meter) long and two or three years old, said Patrick Thomas, the mammals curator at the nearby Bronx Zoo.

Biologists have nicknamed the animal "Jose," as a tribute to U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano's work to revive the river. The Bronx Democrat lined up federal money for a cleanup.

"But I don't know to what extent I imagined things living in it again," he said.

wisdom of the older woman

From a friend:

I looked at my wife one day and said, "Honey, 36 years ago, we had a cheap apartment, no car, no TV, no money and slept on a sofa bed, but I got to sleep every night with a hot good looking 18 year old. Now, we have a beautiful house, two nice cars, king size bed, money and a 50" screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 51 year old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things."

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 18 year old beautiful girl, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, with no car, no money, and sleeping on a sofa bed.

Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve your mid-life crisis.

spain goes soft

Fasninating piece in today's New York Times about how Spain has transformed into a business powerhouse where people are working too much to have their siestas, and stress has affected men's ability to perform. Thus, Viagra sales are booming. Here are some quotes from the article:

“There has been a Viagra explosion in Spain,” says Dr. Carlos San Martín, the country’s leading sexologist, who counsels couples and has tried Viagra himself. “For me, it has become impossible during the week,” he said. “I talk about sex all day long, and when I come home at 11 p.m., it is very difficult to perform.”

Dr. Fernández recalled that a woman recently urged her husband to seek Viagra but that the husband later begged him to stop writing prescriptions. “My equipment works fine with my mistress,” the man said. “It’s my wife that’s the problem.”

“Viagra is not the solution many Spaniards think it is,” said Carmen, who declined to use her last name. “I came to realize that the problem wasn’t my boyfriend’s sexual prowess. The problem was him. Now, she added, “I have sex six times a day, but I do miss going to the opera.”

Nacho Vidal, Spain’s most famous porn star and something of an icon of Spanish male virility, complains that the widespread use of Viagra is destroying rather than strengthening Spanish male sexuality. “Everyone is taking Viagra,” he said. “It is the new drug, and this is undermining Spanish men’s credibility. Before, you used to have to perform, but now all you need is a pill.”

"I fucked Anna Nicole Smith"
"I fucked Anna Nicole Smith"
"I fucked Anna Nicole Smith"

Remember To Tell the Truth? This was the game show where three people claimed to have done something. Two were bluffing and one was telling the truth.

The husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor said Friday that he had a decade-long affair with Anna Nicole Smith and may be her infant daughter’s father.
The claim by Prince Frederick von Anhalt comes amid a paternity suit over Smith’s 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn. The birth certificate lists Dannielynn’s father as attorney Howard K. Stern, but former Smith boyfriend Larry Birkhead is waging a legal challenge, saying he is the father.
"If you go back from September, she wasn’t with one of those guys, she was with me," von Anhalt told The Associated Press in an interview Friday.
So now we have three guys claiming to be the father of ANS's little baby girl. You know, the one that stands to inherit many millions of dollars if her mother's lawsuit continues and is successful.

By the way, do any of these idiots know what a condom is?

green with envy

A friend from high school went into the same industry as me, and our professional paths have crossed occasionally over the decades. We otherwise say hi and chat for about a minute once a year at a trade show.

I had reason to email him this week and he mentioned having run into someone from our class, and I shared in return about having reconnected with a friend from school recently.

THEN he wrote that some years ago he had run into a girl from our class on the subway. And although she didn't remember him, they made a connection. And that turned into a relationship for about a year.

SHE was my #1 fantasy girl in high school. I pined over her. Never had the nerve to ask her out. Imagined her being in love with me. Imagined making out with her so many times. (Making out was as far as my fantasies went at that time, being too inexperienced to truly imagine more.)

THIS once-nerdy friend now tells me, not in so many words, that he had sex with this girl/woman for a year.

Yes, this little twerp (my good friend and colleague) FUCKED THE GIRL OF MY DREAMS!!!!!!

life is not fair.

i'm so honored... desireous did me!

At the time this post was originally written, one of the great sex bloggers, desireous, had just finished a marathon session of sucking off lots of lucky male sex bloggers, including yours truly. But when she was finished, she told us this was the grand finale to her blog. Sadly, she decided to take the blog off the air. I saved my portion of the orgy, including the cock-shot I had provided:

* * * * *

Then I feasted my eyes on Al and his lovely big cock! Al had sent me this picture to give me a clue as to what I would be getting my hands on but his drawing most certainly didn't give that beauty justice!

I stroked Al's hot cock and balls for a few moments and then I swallowed it up like a hungry whore sucking it like it were the last cock on earth! God that was a hot cock! I stroked it with my hand and sucked all at the same time with fondling his balls with my other hand. I took it out of my mouth and rubbed it all over my cum soaked face and then took it back in to suck some more. Al was groaning and I knew I was sucking it good for him. This always makes me happy cause I love a man to walk way thinking, Now that was some good head! I aim to please that I can assure you! I worked that cock while the room cheered me on. I sucked and sucked and worked that shaft with my tongue and took in as much of that big cock as I could manage until finally I made that bad boy bust his load shooting his heavenly cream all over my tongue and lips. What a delightful flavor his spunk had!
