Unanticipated 21st Century sex stuff

Hi readers.  Hells bells.  Hugh Hefner started the sexual revolution back in the 1950s because he thought we were holding back, stuffing things back down inside.  Psychologically repressing ourselves and generally, because sex could make Hugh Hefner a pile of money.

Mutantes: Punk Porn Feminism 2009 NR91 minutes This documentary maps the evolution of the “post-porn” movement, featuring interviews with pioneers like Annie Sprinkle, Carol Queen and Lydia Lunch. More Info Starring: Norma Jean Almodovar, Maria Beatty Director: Virginie Despentes Flowing on Netflix.

But if Hefner had seen this stuff coming down the pike I believe he’d have been shocked, maybe he’d have to ask himself if what he began was an unmitigated blessing.

Fuck for Forest

(Fuck for Forest) 2012 NR 1hr This documentary lays bare an unusual Berlin-based NGO that uses proceeds from homemade adult films to fund the restoration of Amazonian rain forests.

I’m sure it’s just me, but saving the planet by screwing just doesn’t make a lot of sense as a motivation.

American Courtesans 2013NR 86 minutes Follow 11 sex workers through massage parlors, brothels, strip clubs and New York high-rises in this documentary about their choices and fears. More Info

Sheeze man.  I don’t object to any of this,  but I’d pay good money to avoid being a part of a fair amount of it. And not only because it would likely bring on the big one.

But I’m a live and let live kinda guy.
