Farrah Abraham On Slut-Shaming, Helen Keller and Being a Novelist

The only thing more incredible than Farrah Abraham being a New York Times bestselling author is that she walked right into the alligator's mouth at Gawker Media HQ to discuss her latest literary effort: a trilogy of erotic novels based on her own infamy as the star of a "leaked" sex tape. » 6/10/14 3:20pm 6/10/14 3:20pm

The Next Hot Dutch Import? A Feminist Porn Channel

Setting aside for a moment the actual merits of porn that bills itself as feminist, wouldn't it be nice if some progressive company from, say, the Netherlands created a channel of sexy movies that weren't filled with spray-tanned cyborgs waving their aggressively groomed genitals at each other and saying things like,… » 2/02/14 5:30pm 2/02/14 5:30pm

Meet the Woman Behind All of Your Favorite Bigfoot Erotica

Remember the "Cum for Bigfoot" series we talked about a couple of weeks ago? Or is it more accurate to ask, "Remember the 'Cum for Bigfoot' series from the list of books that most profoundly changed your life AND opened your eyes to something new and uncomfortable to jerk off to?" (It's nestled right between "To Kill… » 1/24/14 12:30pm 1/24/14 12:30pm

Amazon is making it harder to sell Bigfoot porn ebooks

Erotica featuring Sasquatch, minotaurs, aliens, and boar gods may not fit everyone's tastes, but some authors have made a killing selling monster sex ebooks. But some ebook retailers, notably Amazon, have been cracking down on cryptozoological smut, making it harder for writers to sell their books to readers who are… » 12/22/13 2:26pm 12/22/13 2:26pm

Studio Brass Mull Releasing Super Gross NC-17 Cut of Fifty Shades Film

If you were worried that the theatrical release of Fifty Shades of Grey couldn't possibly do the source material (lol) justice, some good news: the film's producer hinted today that there may be two versions of the film released — a regular-ass R-rated version to which you can take your father-in-law or precocious… » 11/15/13 7:15pm 11/15/13 7:15pm

George Takei Reads Erotic FanFic About Sulu, Chekov, Pajamas

Revel in George Takei’s steady voice as he reads some dirty Star Trek fanfiction to Andy Cohen. We’ve heard Takei read erotica before, but never erotica that directly involved a character he used to play on television. Thankfully, there’s so much Trekkie fanfic floating around the internet that a nightly, fireside… » 10/26/13 1:00pm 10/26/13 1:00pm

Women Make BANK Writing Dinosaur Erotica

Turns out, this whole "dinosaur erotica" business (in case you missed it, enjoy!) isn't just an amusing internet novelty—it's actually a lucrative career for a couple of enterprising Texas college students. Christie Sims and Alara Branwen (not their real names) only started writing and self-publishing erotica a year… » 10/03/13 5:20pm 10/03/13 5:20pm

The UK Is Amassing a Graveyard of Unrecyclable Fifty Shades Paperbacks

Fifty Shades of Grey — the best-selling book in British history, if your brain can even process such a statement — is no longer the buzzworthy bestseller it was back in the summer of our cultural innocence (2012). Sales might pick up again when the already disappointing movie hits theaters in 2014, but then again,… » 9/05/13 11:55pm 9/05/13 11:55pm

CIA's Cool New Deputy Used to Hold Erotica Nights at Her Bookstore

As a graduate (and a scholar) in International Relations and Middle East Studies, I've eyed my fair share State Department/intelligence jobs before realizing I didn't want to be another pawn in the enactment of American imperialism and hegemony. But before it dawned on me that I never want to have to remove my nose… » 6/13/13 7:00pm 6/13/13 7:00pm

Around the World in Most Searched-For Porn Words

Buzzfeed has put together what is, for practical purposes, a filmstrip about the most searched-for internet porn terms in the world, revealing some things you probably wouldn’t want to know about the apparent nationalism underpinning a population’s lascivious viewing preferences. For instance, the most searched-for… » 6/02/13 3:00pm 6/02/13 3:00pm

At Long Last, Porn Is Getting Its Very Own Academic Journal

Smutty doodles, nudie pixxx, and elaborately-staged sex shows were important way before the Internet, but the Internet greatly facilitates the dissemination (te-he-he) of porn, so it only makes sense that academics have decided that the world can no longer do without an academic journal (that no one will ever read)… » 5/02/13 8:35pm 5/02/13 8:35pm

Toronto Star Food Critic Writes What Is Basically Nigella Lawson…

After observing celebrity chef and perfectly complexioned human Nigella Lawson in the Toronto Star test kitchen, Star food critic and aspiring erotic memoirist Michele Henry decided that, instead of recounting Lawson's visit the way a food critic who isn't on ecstasy might have recounted it, she'd write the beginning… » 3/03/13 6:00pm 3/03/13 6:00pm

Cosmo and Harlequin Join Forces for Series of Inevitably Ridiculous…

Well, isn't this just a match made in boring sexy heaven!

Political Erotic Slashfiction Contest is the Best Terrible Idea Ever

Erotic slashfiction is a complicated animal. If it were a superhuman comic book character, it would be chaotic neutral — capable of incredible good, and unimaginable evil. Unbound by society! On one hand, this erotic Thomas the Tank Engine romance; on the other, Fifty Shades of Grey. But there's one way that… » 9/14/12 7:15pm 9/14/12 7:15pm

It's Not the Size of the Book, It's the Motion in the Ocean: Filthy…

It's summer time and the weather is hot. And so, evidently, is this season's current reading list. "Mommy porn," in all its sticky glory, continues to appear week after week on no less than the New York Times Best Seller list, freaking out, we imagine, all those middle-aged editors in bow ties and grey trousers. But… » 8/17/12 2:20pm 8/17/12 2:20pm
