Notre Dame University Men Request Porn Filter for School Wi-Fi

Eighty male students of Notre Dame University wrote an open letter requesting that a porn filter is put in place on the school's Wi-Fi, according to the Daily Beast.

Jim Martinson, the man responsible for the initial writing of the letter has received over forty emails from students across the country saying that they too wish to have a porn filter in place on their school's Wi-Fi.

Amelia Irvine, a student at Georgetown University, said that Martinson's letter inspired her to request a porn filter for her school. She plans to write a letter and gather support for this cause in the upcoming semester. It is not just the religious schools that want this change, however. Such colleges as Harvard, Princeton, and University of Pennsylvania are on board with a porn filter, and students at Princeton and Penn handing out pamphlets highlighting the dangers of pornography. Martinson is optimistic that if the porn filter is placed on Notre Dame's Wi-Fi, other schools will follow suit. 

But is porn watching that big of a deal on college campuses? A 2013 study found that the average college student engaged with “arousal-oriented online sexual activity” less than once or twice a month, and a 2014 study strengthened the claim that porn viewing was infrequent, as many college students reported relatively infrequent watching of porn. 

The best indicator of whether or not people watch porn is their level of religiosity, so it's not surprising that the push for a porn filter was started in the religious segment of Notre Dame's campus. The letter itself was part of an annual anti-porn campaign created by the campus group called the Students for Child-Oriented Policy, or SCOP. The group claims to be nonpartisan but clearly holds a side, as it has hosted multiple anti-abortion talks on campus and circulated a petition urging people to disapprove of same-sex marriage. Martinson said that while the religious aspect of the ban is important to him, he wants to focus on porn addiction and the objectification of women because he believes that taking a secular stance on the matter will appeal to more people.

Many students felt that the way that women are treated in porn films is related to the current cultural climate and Jack Whelan, an anti-porn advocate in Princeton said that "it’s much easier to objectify women and to not see them as people when you’re simply viewing them as objects of sexual pleasure." 

Some feminists aren't too impressed by the push to ban porn, saying that it's patronizing to sex workers who engage in consensual acts. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education - a group that once advocated from SCOP - said that since most porn is protected under the first amendment, banning it would be an infringement on freedom of speech. 

It seems to me that this banning of porn will most likely continue, as Tumblr recently announced that they will be banning all adult content on December 17 and since more and more schools will try to push for a porn ban, people will be left with two options: watch porn in the comfort of their own homes or use cell data to watch porn at school. Either way, I don't think porn watching is that much of an issue that it needs to be banned outright, but the bans won't most likely stop.

Tumblr Announces New Ban On Adult Content

Tumblr has announced it will soon implement a permanent ban on adult content.

Read that "no more pornography."

A statement posted to the social media’s blog says, “Starting Dec 17, adult content will not be allowed on Tumblr, regardless how old you are.”

The ban comes after Tumblr was recently removed from Apple’s App Store over concerns about child pornography. 

The announcement goes on to list exactly what will be considered adult content: “Photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.”

That said, there are some exceptions like photos of classical statues, breastfeeding or depictions of nudity for the purpose of political protest.

Literary erotica will, however, be allowed. 

The blog post says the company is reaching out to Tumblr users whose content might be suspect per new algorithms that will detect the offending material.

After December 17, that content will be set to ‘private’ preventing other folks from seeing it and from be shared.

Tumblr is urging users to export their content before the new policies take place. 

“There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content,” said CEO Jeff  D’Onofrio in a statement. “We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.”

This announcement comes not long after another policy change, announced in August, which banned hate speech, revenge porn and posts that appear to be the “glorification of violence.”

Tumblr is owned by a subsidiary of Verizon that also owns Yahoo, AOL, MapQuest, and the Huffington Post.

Twitter had to chime in, of course:

Is Starbucks Done Letting Customers Use Their WiFi to Access Porn?

Starbucks has announced that starting in 2019, customers will no longer be able to access pornographic sites using their stores’ WiFi connection, reports NBC News. Looks like you’ll have to take your double shots to go, creepers.

The internet-safety advocacy group Enough is Enough started a petition that gathered over 26,000 signatures urging the coffee empire to put a stop to viewing ‘egregious content’ at Starbucks everywhere. Enough is Enough’s mission states they want to “make the Internet Safer for Children and Families.”

We are dedicated to promoting child dignity in the digital world by raising public awareness about the harms of Internet pornography, sexual predators, cyberbullying, sex trafficking and other dangers.

We develop and advance preventative solutions that promote equality, fairness, and respect for human dignity with shared responsibility between the public, the technology industry, and the legal community.

We stand for freedom of speech as defined by the Constitution of the United States; for a culture where all people are respected and valued; for a childhood of protected innocent; for healthy sexuality; and for a society free from sexual exploitation.

According to Enough is Enough CEO Donna Rice Hughes, in 2016 Starbucks didn’t act on their progress toward “implementing the right, broad-based solution that would remove any illegal and other egregious content”.

Enough is Enough will not be satisfied until Starbucks fulfills their promise to implement safe WiFi filtering.

Hughes said in a statement:

Starbucks has had a tremendous opportunity to put its best foot forward in protecting its customers from images deemed obscene and illegal under the law, but they haven't budged, despite their promise two years ago and despite the fact that they voluntarily filter this same content in the UK.

This time we’re going to wait and see, and we’re going to keep the pressure on.

In a letter from Starbucks to Enough is Enough, the company states that they are working on evaluating a global protocol to address this issue across all stores:

We reserve the right to stop any behavior that interferes with our customer experience, including what is accessed on our free WiFi, as part of our commitment to ensuring that our stores remain a safe and welcoming environment.

According to NBC News, the vice president of YouPorn responded by banning all Starbucks products from company offices starting January 1, 2019. YouPorn is a porn video sharing site—You know, like YouTube, but for porn—and it is one of the 200 most visited websites in the world. Looks like they’ll be investing in tons of Keurigs.

Is Starbucks even a place where people go to watch porn? I think it would be kind of hard to do so while you wait for your iced mocha Frappuccino. And how would Starbucks deal with a patron using their own data plan to access this content?

We will find out how this all turns out come January. Until then, head to Starbucks for your favorite holiday drinks and your most intimate keyword searches on the internet!

Yet Another Porn Star Has Filmed A Lewd Act on a Plane. Is This a Good Look? (NSFW)

Mere weeks after Austin Wolf made headlines for banging a Delta Airlines flight attendant…and then banging an Uber driver, another porn star has filmed himself acting out on a plane. 

Diego Barros is a social media influencer and popular adult performer on the rising platform Only Fans

The muscular, super-well-endowed Barros is a globe-trotting, self-declared “citizen of the world,” and he advertises many underwear brands on his Instagram. 

In a recent vid that’s making the rounds, Barros filmed himself masturbating on an airplane. 

Barros’ social stunt, like Wolf’s, is a lewd act in a public place. It’s attention-grabbing for sure. But is this genuinely sexy or just plain inappropriate? 

Were there kids and familes on Barros’ flight? More than likely—surely on Wolf’s, a Delta Flight. 

In Barros’ video, he appears to be in a closed-off seat, perhaps a business class cocoon-style seat. There is no mention of the specific airline. Still. What if the person who’s paying to sit there next doesn’t want to sit in a seat someone has been vigorously masturbating in? How about that?

Here are some of Barros' less explicit social media posts:

A Canadian Hip Hop Artist Shot a Gay Porn in His Parents' House After Turning 40

Some people would celebrate turning 40 with a nice big party and dinner with family and friends. Some people keep celebrating their 39th birthday over and over again. Openly gay rapper Joshua (“Socalled”) Dolgin marked the milestone by shooting a porn film in his parents’ house.

The Canadian hip hop artist whose eclectic style has earned him nicknames like the “Yiddish James Brown and “Gandhi of hip hop,” recently sat down with Vice to discuss his pornographic arthouse endeavor, The Housesitter.

The one-hour movie stars porn performers River Wilson (whom Dolgin met on Grindr) and Valentin Braun. The film includes chess-playing, a plot about a neighbor who brings brownies over, dream sequence, and of course, unsimulated sexual intercourse on camera. It premieres at the Pop Montreal cultural festival later this month.

In a curious assertion, Dolgin says, “I don’t really like porn.”

"I don't need porn the way some people seem to. Some people really seem to need it. I don't jerk off to porn. A lot of porn is boring and repetitive. I do like to have porn playing at parties.”

Dolgin says he’s a “film snob” and he says The Housesitter is “not just any porn movie, but one that looks beautiful, in which the images have some integrity. I think people who make pornography have a responsibility.”

According to the interview, Dolgin spent some time with gay porn filmmaker Toby Ross for inspiration. Ross's oeuvre includes Cruisin’ 57 and Schoolmates.

"I wanted this to be different," says Dolgin. "I mean, there's lots of hot images on Twitter that you can find very easily. But there's no montage, no music, no artistry. It's just some guys in the act. I wanted to make an indie porn, in the spirit of Toby Ross.”

The Housesitter was shot on location in the Gatineau Hills, and Socalled did the music. The film was shot in the home of Dolgin’s parents while they were away on holiday. His folks weren’t aware of the shoot until after the fact. Dolgin says his parents are “super cool about everything,” though it’s still “sinking in” with his dad.

Dolgin recently turned 40. He says of The Housesitter:

“I don't think of this as a mid-life crisis movie, I see it as a mid-life celebration. I love sex and I love great photography and film, so this is a combination of the two.”

Watch the slightly NSFW trailer for The Housesitter, complete with an imitation MPAA rating banner, below.

[As an aside, if you are looking for an arthouse movie with some unsimulated gay sex, track down the 2016 French drama Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo. It’s well-written and the leads have amazing chemistry. It’s a good movie.]

What are your thoughts on The Housesitter? Feel free to let us know in the comments.

Here's What Alex Jones Has to Say About That Transgender Porn On His Phone

Alex Jones has made a career out of fear-mongering and spewing hatred, so none of us should feel guilty for enjoying watching him make a complete, hypocritical ass of himself.

Just over two weeks after Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify removed all content from the 44-year-old Dallas native for violating policies, the internet had a field day when transgender porn was spotted on his phone during a live broadcast of his show Info Wars.

Related Post: Transphobic Alex Jones Caught Watching Transgender Porn

As reported by The Wrap, earlier this week a guest called in to Info Wars and inquired about it.

“Um, what about the trans porn on your phone? Are you gonna talk about that?”

After looking like a deer in headlights for a few seconds, this was Jones’s response:

“I saw a couple of news articles about that, it’s ridiculous. I was, like, looking up some reporter we’re trying to hire today and punched in some number and porn popped up on my phone. Everybody has had porn pop-up on their phone hundreds of times.”

He continues:

“I probably had porn menus pop up 500 times on my phone. There’s [sic] two types of people: people who look at porn and people who lie about it. But I wasn’t looking at porn on my phone. I don’t take phones on air that I look at porn on… Thank you for your call!”

Surely, we can all relate: Don’t you just hate it when 500 porn pop-ups appear on your phone? Also, many phones do you have, Jones?

Jones has been outrageously, madly critical of the trans community in the past. Before his outright ban from the platform, Jones received a strike from YouTube for appearing to threaten people in the trans community.

You can check out a video of Jones violently unloading on the trans community below or with this link.

 

 

 

He likens them to “demon psychopath(s) that make Pennywise look beautiful. And they show up and they have their way with children, in demon outfits. I mean, if you’ve got men that look like 400-pound goblin demons with your children, there’s nothing you won’t put up with!” He yells all of this at the top of his lungs, and the video ends with the Info Wars host becoming so enraged that he picks up his chair and flings it across his set.

Just a reminder: This piece of work, described by New York magazine as “America’s leading conspiracy theorist,” is aggressively opposed to even minimal gun control, he has loudly proclaimed that the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, which left 28 people including 20 young children dead, was fake and never actually happened. He also claims that the U.S. government was behind the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 9/11 terror attacks. Oh, and he says the 1969 Moon landing was staged. Of course.

Grab some popcorn and Red Vines, and let’s continue watching this disaster go up in flames together. Watch the gratifyingly awkward call-in here

Amateur Porn Star Is Back - "I Was Kinda Missing All Of You Guys"

He’s baaaaack.

Amateur gay-for-pay porn guy Michael Hoffman has announced via Twitter that he’s coming out of retirement.

Hoffman gained some fame (or infamy) as a tatted-up, muscular hunk who shot and sold homemade self-videos on pay-for-view porn sites.

The majority of the vids were solo (Hoffman identifies as straight) and earned him tens of thousands of dollars.

But last July, Hoffman shared a video on his official Twitter account saying he regretted ever getting involved in amateur porn.

“My decision four years ago to start making videos has really f*cked me up,” he said. “I lose girl after girl. I can’t land a relationship. Can’t get a job. Can’t go anywhere. Can’t do anything.”

“Every single person I meet finds out or knows about it, gets creeped out, doesn’t want to be f*cking friends with me.”

 

 

But you know the old saying, ‘time heals everything.’ Or at least you get over porn-life angst.

Last month, the 25-year-old told his Twitter followers that he’s on the comeback road after “missing all of you guys.”

“I know it’s been a good couple months,” he wrote. “I’ve been going through a lot. I was working. I thought I was gonna move on. But, honestly, I was just kinda missing this. And I was kinda missing all of you guys.”

 

 

Hoffman is now back and he’s dropped a new video which shows him getting  a very NFSW massage from another guy, complete with a happy ending. 

You can find more info about Hoffman's past video escapades here.

Here's more from the muscular hunk's Instagram account.
