Media reports of drug-resistant gonorrhea in Hawaii overblown

Link

So it sounds like this story making the rounds like seen here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2319818/Sex-superbug-feared-infectious-AIDS-discovered-Hawaii.html is actually false.

The linked article is the actual case study of the incident and it wasn’t the same strain. It was a highly drug resistant strain but not the incurable and deadly HO41.

Also, a good little follow-up to calm the fears of HO41 being “worse than AIDS”.

Aaaand…we’re back!

So as mentioned before, we’re a MILF lovin’ country, that’s for sure! Here’s a text version of their top 10 for the USA:

1. MILF

2. teen – duh

3. College – also duh

4. creampie – slightly surprising to see this so high up..especially that it’s sometimes associated with swinging/cuckolding/bisexual male play

5. massage – this is really kind of out of left field, I feel like I don’t come across massage role play that often. But it’s an unfortunate thing to see for the massage therapists out there trying to destigmatize the profession from its seedy past

6. asian – while not as high up as other countries with higher asian populations, still clearly shows the fetishization of race that asians are dealing with in this country

7. pov – a development in recent years that’s certainly become more popular. The newest spin on this genre of late is strapping a GoPro video camera to your head or body part while having sex.

8. amateur – duh! There’s a huge explosion of amateur porn with how every device we have can record decent quality video these days. Perfect for sex tapes…

9. anal – oh anal. So stigmatized, yet so many Americans are doing it. I could go on a whole rant about how it needs to not be stigmatized to address many of the issues people have with it…

10. lesbian – because even homophobes still like seeing two women go at it…just not two men! The horror!

So where’s everyone looking at MILF porn? Well, everywhere. But, the highest concentrations are in the midwest and southeast. I can’t quite put my finger on why this is more so than other areas…

Oh and Asians? Similarly to Canada, the more there are, the more they’re the subject of porn searches. West coast. Nuff said.

But, did I say they were the only race being searched for? Well, that wasn’t quite correct. Because in some states, ebony is a very highly used search term (#1 in some southern states). But nonexistant in the top ten of other states…Speaking of which, in some of the southern states, one of the top ten searches is for “black”…but on their gay side of the search engine! Make of that what you will…

So that’s a wrap on some of the interesting bits…See anything else that makes total sense that I missed? Or anything totally odd with what you’d expect for a state? Drop me a line in the comments!

So let’s start at the macro level!

Mostly predictable for what you’d expect in the USA…although it is a bit surprising to see MILF at #1. Anyway, we’ll dig into the USA more later…

Canada’s list is pretty similar with the exception that Asian is the top searched item. While still a relatively small minority in terms of percentage of the population, Asians make up 11% of the Canadian population, versus 4.8% of the USA’s population. So it makes sense that it’d be more prevalent there…BUT…similarly points to a fetishization of Asians. Which is definitely unfortunate.

Whoa boy, Mexico! The #1 searched term is Mexico…on their gay sites! That’s pretty impressive but for a country rapidly liberalizing towards gay marriage and acceptance, it’s a good thing to see. But let’s move down to South America:

So, while the search results to SA countries could be skewed based on their sites not being popular down there, gay porn seems to be VERY popular in SA. Not quite sure what to make of it. Oddly enough, one of the top results in Venezuela is Nina Hartley. Go her!

A lot of the world is pretty similar to you’d expect, nationalities matching the country, some of the common top results, and some well known porn stars from said country.

Last interesting region: Asia!

Whoa, wait, what? Japanese related porn shows up more than Chinese? Although I doubt these results given China’s firewall and being anti-porn, these are somehow coming from Chinese IP addresses. I guess the next time they amp up tensions based on the islands in the South China Sea they should take a break and watch some porn and may feel a bit more amicable :3

More coming in part two!

“Girls” Without Condoms

I definitely noticed this as well…

Not quite sure after the decent effort to be safe-sex focused last season (even with an over the top episode about HPV) why this season has been so absent in using condoms. Cheap narrative shortcut?

Although that article does not take into account that there was no penetration in the last sex scene of “On All Fours”…

It’s funny how people will use the phrase “she looks like a porn star” to describe someone. But in actuality, porn stars look incredibly normal for the most part.

The amount of work done is pretty crazy and kinda moves everyone towards a very similar look. Honestly, I think it goes too far, I know a lot of men find freckles attractive but apparently the porn industry thinks we all want a smooth complexion.
