Now that we've survived the ever-so-long Valentine's Day weekend with an Internet overflowing with hearts, chocolates and articles about things like "69 Ways To Show Your Special Someone You Love Them With the Remains From Your Salad," it's time to take a minute to remember the real reason we have the Internet: Porn. And what a week in porn it was!

Grab some lube, kleenex and fresh batteries (Haha! Just kidding! I know you only have rechargeable vibrators these days!) Off we go!

Studies Examine Whether Porn's Addictive

Porn, as it turns out, is not an addiction! Unless you are religious. Several studies looked at why this could be and came up empty handed. I'm going to bet it's because it's easier for some people to admit they have a problem than to say they like to look at naughty pictures and shake hands with the false prophet in their spare time.

And What Life Would Be Like Without It

Writer and comedian Ethan Fixell did an experiment and took 30 days off porn. He ended up wavering between rage-induced blindness and realizing that he needs to spend more time appreciating his girlfriend. I question how much porn he could have actually watched in the first place though, as he ends the article asking if there is such a thing as ethical porn. You know, the kind where they treat the girls with some respect. He obviously hasn't heard of Puckerup.com, or Crashpadseries.com, or CourtneyTrouble.com. Or, you know, used Google.
Of course, not everyone likes porn ...

Pornography Crackdowns

The French are often considered an amorous bunch, but a couple of top French chefs are cracking down on food porn. They think it ruins the surprise for their patrons. I think it makes me hungry and want to eat at that restaurant. Whatever. They are food geniuses, not marketing gurus.

Meanwhile, this mom wrote a letter to her son asking him not to watch porn. Reading her letter I waver between wondering how much porn she starred in and where she got her statistics. While she has some good points, many are mis-stated and I'm pretty sure this kid will be hopelessly confused if his girlfriend actually happens to be into something like anal sex. Poor kid.

Finally, for those of us who miss watching porn star Danny Wylde, here is a fun, somewhat safe for work (unless you have to stand up after you watch it) video of him and the lovely Asphyxia Noir chatting about what they do in their free time.

That's all for this week! I'm always looking to promote sex positive blogs, so if you have one you like, let me know!
