Destricted Film Review
The short film series Destricted gathers an impressive roster of arthouse and avant-garde directors to turn over oft asked, but seldom fruitfully answered, questions about the divisions, mutilations, and commingling of art and pornography.
Celebrity Porn Star Lookalikes
Doppelgänger is German for Double-Walker, meaning lookalike. According to legends, every person on earth has one doppelgänger, but the odds that you might find yours in the current human population of 7.4 billion are highly unlikely. Celebrities, however, have become increasingly able to beat the odds with the rise of technology. With images of stars plastered across the internet, it’s easy to make lookalike connections. The only people easier to find on the internet than pop culture stars are porn stars, making celebrities with porn star lookakiles the easiest to find. Some cultures consider the appearance of a doppelgänger in someone’s life as a bad omen and some refer to them as a person’s evil twin. While we certainly don’t consider the existence of these porn star dopplegängers a bad omen, we can’t really argue with the evil twin theory. After all, it’s kind of nice to imagine that Scarlett Johansson and Taylor Swift have bad-girl doubles out there.
Ways to Cuddle
In the course of a day, we are bombarded by fleeting bodily contacts with strangers and associates. It is no surprise that these random contacts can be highly stimulating. Society has developed a fairly permissive standard for looking, but touching is prohibited. Zoologist Desmond Morris made note of this in The Naked Ape: "Body-to-body contacts have… become such an important part of sexual behavior that these too have to be damped down during the ordinary daily routine. A ban has to be placed on physical contact with strangers in our busy, crowded communities."
Vintage Erotic Gifs
Vintage erotica evokes a unique blend of nostalgia and excitement. It transports us to a simpler time, when sex tapes were stored on VHS and the bodies in them looked more like flesh than plastic. Retro erotica gifs blend the new and old, using millennial technology to catch bite-sized pieces of old films and wrap them up for our viewing pleasure. These snippets allow us to project our own storylines onto them, intertwined with fantasy and reality. Of course, we know we are viewing these scenes through the rose-tinted glasses of a modern era, but the fantasy still persists.

What I Learned at Swinger Clubs
I have always been a fan of the unique sexual experience. Never one to enjoy being boring and stale, I pride myself on getting out there and learning to be adventurous. Some of my partners have been amenable to these "adventures" and some, not so much. But I don't judge. The key is to be open, and I am not just referring to your legs being open. Sex is about the mind, the heart and the body. Any situation that can engage those three and the rest of of your senses, is something worth exploring.
Porn Star Amazon Wish Lists
Porn stars like pretty things. They also like expensive things. Fans of porn stars like to make them happy. What better way to do this than to show their appreciation through gift-giving? Say hello to the Amazon wish list. Many have questioned the story behind the start of the Amazon wish list. People use it, but aren’t always sure what it’s actually for. Those of us who shop for ourselves on Amazon and have no reason to expect others to buy us anything. Therefore we use it to keep track of what we want to buy, but don’t quite have the money for, or what we’re hoping to see go on sale in the future. It’s also great for requesting birthday gifts, wedding gifts, etc. Porn stars, on the other hand, do have reason to expect people to buy them things on a regular basis. They give their fans the greatest gift of all-adult entertainment. It seems that Amazon had been removing wish lists of some member of the "industry," something about a violation of standards. The lists then reappeared, but the discussion remains.
Photographers to Follow on Instagram
Instagram has become the medium of photographs. No posting how many times you went to the bathroom or why you hate your girlfriend. Though, you can post pictures of you going to the bathroom and/or of your girlfriend, but it is totally up to you. Though one might think that photography is a dying art, it is actually more popular than ever. Thanks, in part, to Instagram. Now everyone can fancy themselves a professional photographer. Those snaps you take of celebrities that you post? Well, that makes you bonafide paparazzi—congratulations. For the "real" photographers, the ones who make a living with their art form, Instagram has become holy ground. A place to share their visions with the masses. It gets their work out there on a very public platform. The images are vivid, life affirming and beautiful. Every photographer has their viewpoint, and Instagram is the perfect place to share those views.
Erotic Photography Books
Sight is a powerful sense. We are blessed with the ability to take in light and shadows, color and shape. A truly skilled photographer has the gift of bringing real life into still form, without losing the reality of the subject. Erotic photographers have an even greater ability. They transform the naked image or the subtle implication of sex into an artistic medium. For decades, photographers have been bringing iconic images of all genres to the forefront, teaching us lessons of history, glamour, and seduction. Erotic photographs have caused controversy and prompted discussion of what art truly is. The answer is simple—it is what you desire it to be. Choosing to use a book of photographs as a coffee table decoration is yours, but erotic photography books will serve you better if you look at the pictures and take in the genre and all it has to offer.
Guide to Leg Body Language
More than half of communication is delivered through body language, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re all speaking the same language. The way you cross your legs, tilt your head, or even blink can give off a message that you may or may not be intending to give. Ever heard the phrase, "Women are from Venus, men are from mars?" Women and men are rarely on the same page, so it should come as no surprise to any of us that body language can be as tough to interpret as any other foreign language. Think she’s being coy? She’s probably just bored. Ladies, think you’re being confident? Surprise! You’re actually a frigid bitch! How do we level the playing field when men and women look at the world so differently? You tell both sides of the story. Men and women take note, we can all learn a little something about non-verbal communication and what exactly it is that we are saying.
