First, I’m going to be on Sexxx Talk Radio today (March 28, 2012) at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST on the Progressive Radio Network.
Sexxx Talk Radio is an interesting space dedicated to taking uncompromising looks at sexual shame and the odd bedfellows that are sex and religion. Whether it’s sex in the news media, probing the minds of experts, politicians and celebrities, or helping listeners understand both their bodies and the politics of sexuality, co-hosts Alyssa Royse and Lanae St. John meet the issues head-on.
I will be joined on the show by YNOT Vice President LAJ. We will be chatting about adult industry myths, the intersection of porn and society, and more on Wednesday’s broadcast.
The show will air *live* beginning at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST, but if you can’t tune in then, don’t despair – I will share the show as soon as a recording is available!!

Second, did you see this AlterNet.org piece?? –> “The Bible Belt’s Love Affair With (Gay and Straight) Porn” (March 13, 2012)
Author Alex Henderson muses: “The GOP presidential hopefuls keep vilifying porn. Odd that the very people they’re trying to pander to consume massive amounts of it.”
Alex talked to a lot of really significant and informed people when doing this piece including Quentin Boyer of Pink Visual, Colin Rowntree of Wasteland.com, Diane C. Duke of the Free Speech Coalition, and… me!!
Although XBiz didn’t feel it necessary to mention me in their recap (gah!!), Alex closed the piece with this bit and quote:
“Chauntelle Tibbals, a sociologist who has spent 10 years studying the adult entertainment industry and publishes the industry-oriented blog PVVonline.com (the PVV stands for ‘Porn Valley Vantage’), asserted: ‘If you teach people about sex and if people have access to information about sex, they’re more likely to regard it in a measured way and make informed decisions. In a place where the lockdown on porn is so tight, it’s not surprising to me that the interest in it and the searching for it is so high. In a place where you have more access to information about sex, there isn’t this frantic panic to see what’s going on and delve in. The stricter the regulations, the higher the interest.'”
Delightful!! You can read Alex’s entire piece here.
