Tabloid Strip Search, 1897

According to this site, in the run-up to the Spanish-American war there was a breathless account published in the New York Journal about a supposed provocation by the Spanish:

As the American steamship Olivette was about to leave Havana Harbor for the United States, it was boarded by Spanish police officers who searched three young Cuban women, one of whom was suspected of carrying messages from the rebels. The Journal ran the story with the headline, “Does Our Flag Protect Women?”

It was accompanied by a dramatic sketch by Frederic Remington across one half a page showing Spanish plainclothes men searching a nude woman. The Journal went on to editorialize, “War is a dreadful thing, but there are things more dreadful than even war, and one of them is dishonor.”

This caught my attention because the lurid sketch of the strip search is by none other than THE Frederick Remington, the same one whose Western-themed art and cowboy sculptures later beceme so iconic and evocative of the fantasy of the American west. Here’s a detail from the strip-search sketch (click the image for the full sketch):

Of course, the sketch is hopelessly lurid compared to the reality behind the tabloid account of the strip search:

Soon, however, the story unraveled. The World quickly produced one of the young women who contested the Journal’s version of the incident. Eventually the Journal was forced to correct the story. The search had been appropriately conducted by a police matron with no men present.

Bad Puppy Butt Plug

I can only assume that furry games, puppy play, pony fun, and animal role-play in general must be getting more mainstream, given the fact that The Stockroom’s latest list of new products includes four new animal-tail butt plugs. Four new furry tails, plus the Bad Puppy Butt Plug with embedded steel dog-chain leash:

With the Bad Puppy Plug you can keep your partner leashed up and ready for the pound. To start things off, this butt plug is plenty thick for an intense filling feeling. It’s made of silicone, so it’s flexible yet firm, and easy to clean after messing around.

What makes this pup special is the stainless steel chain link extending from the end, opening up countless possibilities. Restraint is an option if you attach the chain to some immobilizing device, puppy play with a leash attached gives a Dom a new way to keep control, and solo users will even enjoy the different sensation of having the chain’s weight pulling on the plug.

Three different lengths of chain are available, so you can give the sub who wears this as much or as little freedom as that little runt deserves!

A Camel Ride In Giza

I’m pretty sure naked camel-riding is not legal in Egypt, but sometimes you just have to disregard petty mundane regulation in the pursuit of great art. Don’t you agree?

Cary Grant, Spanking and Grinning

Spanking Blog has a reproduction of an Art Buchwald column from 1968 in which Buchwald supposedly consults his lawyer about the legalities of wife spanking. The column was stimulated (ha) by then-current scandalous news from the divorce proceedings of legendary actor Cary Grant. Supposedly the actor responded to an allegation that he’d spanked his soon-to-be-ex-wife by admitting it. His defense? He had, he claimed, “reasonable and adequate cause” to spank her. A small detail from the trial testimony: he was grinning when he did it.

The past? It is indeed another country. Forget the wife spankings of the rich and famous; it’s bizarre enough that people used to actually litigate the question of whether sufficient grounds for a divorce existed!

Online Dating Gone Wrong

She knew that the security guard’s online profile was a little wonky. But he was young and kinda cute (if she squinted just right after two drinks) and she was getting lonely, and don’t security guards carry handcuffs? It might be fun.

What Simone Sinay did not realize was that (a) he was one of those guys who does everything with a buddy; (b) those two dudes were the only people who ever got within half a mile of the old warehouse facility they were guarding; and (c) they’d put a lot of effort into building out their playroom/dungeon in the basement:

It won’t take a lot of time before she’s side-eyeballing that toilet next to the bed, and wondering just how long they plan to keep her.

Where Your Adult Site Visitors Went

If, like me, you’ve maintained (for a few years, or a dozen) an adult blog or adult site of any kind, you might have noticed that your number of readers has gone down (a little or a lot) in recent years. Did you wonder why? Did you wonder where those readers went? Did people get tired of looking at sex online?

No. Listen as Business Insider explains:

Mobile Apps Are Killing The Free Web, Handing A Censored Duopoly to Google And Apple

In a nutshell:

With just two simple charts, Chris Dixon has pointed out one of those things that is both totally obvious but — when expressed succinctly — slightly terrifying.

The Web as we know it is being replaced, slowly but surely, by mobile apps. And access to those apps is controlled by just two companies: Apple and Google.

Here is his first chart, showing the way mobile users are exceeding desktop users on the Web:

mobile web use blows past exceeds surpasses desktop web use in 2014

In theory, that shouldn’t matter to your adult site, people can just browse it on their smartphone instead of with their desktop. Why should you care?

You should care because people mostly don’t browse much of anything on their smartphones. As the article puts it:

People on mobile phones and tablets are using the Web less and less, proportionately:

web use on mobile devices is a tiny fraction of app use

So there are now more people using mobile devices than are using desktop browsers. And on their mobile devices, they tend not to browse. They use apps, overwhelmingly. Do you have an app for your adult site? Not for Apple/IOS devices, you don’t, because Steve Jobs hated porn so badly that Apple still bans anything vaguely sexy from its app store even though he’s long dead (ding dong) and decently buried.

You probably don’t have an Android app for your adult site, either; Google’s app store has always banned explicit content, and recently tightened the rules to exclude “erotic” content as well. It’s possible in theory to distribute Android apps outside of Google’s store, but from what I hear, it’s difficult in practice to get any kind of numerical traction for adult apps. (The best venue I know of is adult app store Mikandi.)

Does this story have a moral? I’d say it has two:

1) If you have an adult site, you want to get an app for that.
2) You might pray that Samsung keeps building Android devices that kick IOS ass.

Good luck, we’re all gonna need it.

Pantyhose Textures And Patterns

If your pantyhose fetish extends to girls wearing hose in unusual colors and patterns, then Panty Hose Colors is the site for you. I think this girl is going for a sort of Russian-apartment urban-camouflage effect:

Photoshopped Helplessness

I blogged long ago about an infamous photoshopped porn picture that was always named “stumpy.jpg” after the girl appearing in it whose legs had been photoshopped into amputation stumps. This sort of amputee-fetish photoshopped porn is hardly new, but it’s sort of rare due to the oddity of its fetish niche and the work involved in generating a good ‘shop. (Note: there is also real amputee fetish porn out there, but that’s a whole ‘nuther post.)

Here’s an image on Tumblr that shows before-and-after views of a blowjob photo. It struck me as odd because in the unaltered picture, the woman is held by her ponytail while giving a bondage blowjob; while in the modified version, her limbs (and the bondage) have been removed. Fetish is as fetish does, I suppose, but my instant thought was “What, she wasn’t helpless enough for you already?”

More Sex Blog History

Following up on my post about sex blog history (and my semi-dubious claim to have invented the “sex blogging” notion, even though I’ve always acknowledged that others were doing it long before me, under different names) here’s what I said last week:

Susannah Breslin’s blog The Reverse Cowgirl’s Blog (which you might or might not consider a sex blog, though it had a lot of sex-blog-like content, and rocked the subtitle “in which a writer attempts to justify the enormity of her porn collection” ) got started a month plus five days before ErosBlog did. That’s why I have always acknowledged that blog as a possible contender for “the first sex blog” even though nobody called it a sex blog before I first coined the phrase.

Here’s what Susannah has to say about that:

As I pointed out on Twitter this morning, I was preceded in sex blogging by Daze Reader, whose first blog post dates back to May 2002. I didn’t launch The Reverse Cowgirl until August 2002. I’ve always seen Daze as the first sex blogger. I don’t know that I would’ve ever created my blog if it weren’t for Daze’s pioneering sex blogging.

In regards to Lilly’s question, would I consider The Reverse Cowgirl blog a sex blog? Yes. At the time, I was a freelance journalist and my primary beat was sex. I created the RCB to share my crazy life working the sex and porn beat, from Porn Valley to the Playboy Mansion, and I was intoxicated by the opportunity that sex blogging afforded me: an uncensored venue where I could write and express whatever I wanted — without censorship.

I am abashed that Daze did not come up in the “early sex blog” conversation before now; he was one of my inspirations for sure. I don’t remember him calling his blog a “sex blog” out loud anymore than Susannah did, but by any reasonable measure, it surely was. During that summer of 2002 when I was surfing blogs on breaks at my desk at my unrewarding office job — and yes, there was a logging Sonic Firewall device in that workplace, but I had the password and thus the ability to confirm that nobody else was logging in check the logs — Daze was one of my never-miss daily stops.

Another proto-sexblog mentioned on twitter as dating back to August of 1999 (!) is Debra Hyde’s Pursed Lips. I was linking to Debra from the beginning; her focus, as I remember it, was somewhat specialized around erotic literature, both writing it and collecting it. (Sadly, nothing of her site from before 2004 or so seems to have survived in the Internet Archives.) The most recent archived version of her “About” page says:

I’m a long-time blogger and sometimes podcaster. Pursed Lips is among the oldest blogs to bravely explore sex in our culture, a baby I birthed in 1999 when bloggers numbered around 200 people!

It’s astonishing how ephemeral these sites turn out to be. The Internet Archive helps a lot, but their coverage in the early years was spotty at best. And you can’t search it, so if you don’t already have a link, even stuff in the Archive is as good as gone in most cases.

Update, Debra Hyde on Twitter: “I saw PL as a sexblog, tho not sure the term yet existed.”
