Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on Caitlyn Jenner: ‘She hasn’t got a clue!’


 
In the hour-long podcast embedded below Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge discuss the notion that Caitlyn Jenner—rich, white, honored at awards ceremonies, etc—should be wary of referring to herself as a spokesperson for the transgender community, considering that she’s got precious little in common with trans people of color and lower-income situations.

From DAZED:

“Apparently Caitlyn is already saying things like, ‘It’s so difficult being a woman and having to decide which designer gown to wear when you go out at night’… That’s not being a woman, that’s being a glamorous Hollywood figure and that’s not how it is for most people. There are lots of teenage kids on the streets of New York who are hustling and risking AIDS because they need to get money to transition, and they’re prepared to risk their lives because it’s such a deep need, and they don’t have that back-up system.”

“We’re not saying Caitlyn isn’t courageous in terms of the personal experience, but the way it’s being presented by the media could end up being really, really damaging. We actually saw one thing on the news and Caitlyn’s going, ‘I feel like I can be a spokesperson for the transgendered community.’ And later on she says, ‘I actually don’t know any transsexuals.’ What the fuck, she’s going to be spokesperson? She hasn’t got a clue! She’s been living in her own bubble with her own issues, dealing with them, but she doesn’t understand what it’s like for the ladyboys in Bangkok, or the transsexuals in Japan or people in Russia. She doesn’t know! Stop being a spokesperson.”

Later in the show Genesis opines:

“Binary systems are the critical problem, the either/or, the black/white, gay/straight, Christian/Muslim, you name it. Maybe the problem is that we haven’t evolved into a unified being; not male or female but both. The human body is not the person. Identity is the way the brain operates; it’s memories, it’s sensory input and output. The mind is the person.”

Are you cucumber or a carrot? Wrap your meat in fruit and veg for the optimum fitting condom!

In a triumph of design, Guan-Hao Pan, a student at the National Taipei University of Technology has created this adorable (and functional!) condom series using fruits and vegetables for sizing models. Love Guide Condoms gives you five options, from biggest to smallest you have cucumber, carrot, banana, turnip and zucchini. Obviously fruits and vegetables aren’t standardized, but it’s not a bad system to measure your meat. The nutritious theme of these rubbers is based off the Chinese proverb, “hunger and lust are only natural,” and yes they’re as “green” (yuk yuk) as possible, with biodegradable packaging, as opposed to the non-biodegradable foil that’s used most commonly.

The array of sizes is intended to help men choose a correctly-fitted condom, as incorrect sizing can actually result in breakage or slippage (no word on how you will prevent men from vanity sizing). Also, the condoms are placed over a tiny nub in the package, so that the user will be less likely to put it on inside out (big no-no, can also cause breakage), and so that removing them requires the pinching on the reservoir tip (something you should always do)!

Sinthetics
Male “manikin” (hat and cheap vodka not included)
 
So-Cal company Sinthetics are the folks responsible for these fully articulated, anatomically correct sculpted “manikins” (a word the company coined themselves) that are so lifelike, that they may make you may swear off the boring, old real thing.

Prices start at $5,900 for Sinthetics’ male dolls which includes a complimentary “gel buttocks upgrade.” And it is the upgrades that Sinthetics offers that make their individually hand-made manikins truly one-of-a-kind. Here’s a price list of some of my favorites:

Freckles: start at $50 and go up depending on placement, density and amount

Tan Lines: $250 for bottoms-only and $500 for the top. Any style you would like!

Custom teeth (!), labia or nipples all start at $150

Custom Eyes: start at $300 and are done by Sinthetics own “professional” eye maker. Animal and monster eyes are also available (Squeee!)

Extra penises (for the male dolls) are $99 and up depending on the upgrade

Thigh Modifications: $150 - $350 depending on which option is selected

Sinthetics also makes female manikins with customizable “honey pots” (which Sinthetics will happily replace for FREE every 13 months, yipee!) as well as a synthetic penis (which according to Sinthetics’ site are mostly cast from actual penises) that is so REAL looking, you might want to replace your own saggy, worn out one with Sinthetics six-incher. More slightly NSFW photos of Sinthetics lifelike manikins follow.

The erotic horror art of Toshio Saeki

Toshio Saeki


 
It might not be entirely accurate to describe Toshio Saeki’s work as proper “porn,” but his nightmarish prints (created using a modernized version of a traditional Japanese woodcut technique) are certainly erotica. Saeki actually quit his job at a Tokyo ad agency at the age of 24 and started working at men’s magazines. His art developed a following during the sexual revolution of the 1960s, and by the time his horror erotica was first published in 1970, older genres of Japanese pulp—like Ero Guro Nansensu (“erotic, grotesque, nonsense”)—were getting popular again. Saeki explained his philosophy in a 2013 interview with Dazed:

Let me put it this way: leave other people to draw seemingly beautiful flowers that bloom within a nice, pleasant-looking scenery. I try instead to capture the vivid flowers that sometimes hide and sometimes grow within a shameless, immoral and horrifying dream.

Often referred to as “the godfather of Japanese erotica.” Saeki is a septuagenarian today, still living and working in rural Japan, pleased to see his art embraced by new generations of fans.

Top this, Burning Man! Amusing new ‘Domestikator’ building is semi-NSFW

The theme of this year’s Ruhr Triennale in northwestern Germany is “Seid umschlungen,” a phrase from Friedrich Schiller‘s “Ode to Joy” that translates as “be embraced”—a directive that may have been willfully, and amusingly, misunderstood by one of the festival’s contributors.

The Dutch design company Atelier Van Lieshout has created a massive edifice in Bochum, Germany, called “Domestikator” that includes two linked structures that look distinctly like two human beings in the throes of sexual passion. The fuller installation of which it is a part is called “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”
 

 
The centerpiece of the installation is the “Refectorium,” and it also includes the “BarRectum,” which “takes its shape from the human digestive system,” according to designboom

According to Lost at E Minor’s Inigo del Castillo, the building is intended “to symbolise humanity’s abuse of power, domesticating anything and everything it can get its hands on, including taboos and ethical dilemmas like bestiality.”

Yeah, right.

Vintage Paris ‘pleasure guides’ for horny tourists

Despite suffering so many casualties in WWI that its military-eligible population was still decimated when WWII came around, France’s economy bounced back fairly quickly in the wake of Europe’s devastation in the “War to End All Wars.” That 1920s recovery was partly based on two enduringly popular items which were made abundantly available in Paris: alcohol and women’s bodies. Americans, flush with cash in a stock bubble and weary of the prudery that led to alcohol prohibition, visited Paris for cocktails and cockteases. Paris’ sexualized entertainments ran the gamut from mere topless revues to outright sex for sale, and the publishing industry capitalized with “Pleasure Guides” for horny tourists.

Now, some of these were pretty much ordinary tourist guides tarted up with sexy cover art. This English-language guide below, via Archive.org, is a browser widget that lets you actually flip through the book. (The entry on page 79 for the notoriously gory Grand-Guignol is priceless, as it’s demure to the point of deceptiveness.) It picks up a bit of steam on page 121, a chapter titled “The Worst Parts of Paris.”
 

 

 

In front of the Métro Combat, a little to the right, after nº 120, stretches up towards the Buttes-Chaumont the small rue Moniol, which the rue Asselin cuts across, cutting out from the centre of said cross a block of dingy houses called the «Monjol fort», a citadel of love in which a dozen groundfloor rooms each hide in the mouldering walls three or four women, all fallen to the last degree of the vilest prostitution.

Bepainted, scarcely clad in a mere unfastened dressing-gown of oriental colours, they await, watch and call the stevedores and the «sides» who swarm at that hour in the bars around, and who prowl about and succeed one another at their half-closed doors, bespattered with a wan light from within.

You’re just crazy-horny now, aren’t you? Say what you will, that second ‘graf is poetry.

But of course, while the tamer guides were legit tourist resources with a few references to the sex trade—disguised as warnings to provide cover to both the reader and the publisher—other books were just straight-up lists of bordellos. UC Berkeley professor Mel Gordon, in his forthcoming Feral House book Horizontal Collaboration: The Erotic World of Paris, 1920-1946, writes

Paris, universally referred to as Paname by the locals because of de rigueur hats worn by male fashion plates, was back in business. By 1923, over 250,000 American tourists had made their way across the Atlantic to explore the French capital. Fleeing their country’s draconian Prohibition laws and flush with wads of hard currency, the worldly trekkers weren’t just there to inspect the landmarks and museums or ferret out its fine dining establishments. They were drawn to la Ville-Lumière for a more unconventional list of enticements, many of which were primly catalogued in the city’s official directories or featured in the voyagers’ naughty guidebooks.

The classifications of the brothels in many ways resembled those of hotels or restaurants. In general, they were broken into three categories: mammoth luxury establishments, where customers might spend the better part of an evening (masons de tolérance); intimate, more personal-sized dwellings (maisons de ren- dez-vous); and dirt-cheap lairs that mimicked the speed and efficiency of a factory assembly line (maisons d’abattage).

Annual directories and business cards advertised and updated the latest additions to the maisons closes. Smaller houses relocated with some regularity and, occasionally, the names of competing brothels — based on street addresses or landladies’ nicknames — were confusingly duplicated. So there were multiple Château d’Eaus, Chez Billys, Chez Suzys, Le Hanovres, Le Panier Fleuris, and Temples of Beauty. Guidebooks, like the ubiquitous Guide Rose or Guide-Indicateur des Maisons de Plaisirs et d’Art de Paris, were essential aids.

‘Hustlers’: Magnetic portrait series of NYC and LA male prostitutes

Eve Fowler


 
Eve Fowler‘s captivating series, Hustlers, is not your average coffee table book of photography. Between 1993 and 1998, Fowler photographed young gay men selling sex in the West Village and on Santa Monica Boulevard, to startlingly familiar effect. The project coincided with Fowler’s own coming out; her subjects are—in a way—an extension of her own identity.

The men themselves remain anonymous, and the viewer is left to wonder about their lives and personal stories. Street hustling has never been the safest way to make a living, and deaths from AIDS only stopped climbing after 1995—it could be tempting for a less humane photographer to portray her subjects as little more than gritty icongraphy, but Fowler doesn’t seem to direct these men at all. Some of them pose, others pout, and some simply smile, as if for a family snapshot.

Sexual Trivia Strikes Again (1984)
Sexual Trivia board game (1984)

There were many different versions of Sexual Trivia put out after the first one debuted in 1984 from Baron/Scott Enterprises - the same perverted geniuses behind the Dirty Words dice game from 1977.

A sort of deviant play on Monopoly, the first player to collect 100 orgasm dollars, wins. Because, of course they do. On the pamphlet that lists the rules for gameplay, it is recommended that Sexual Trivia NOT be played while riding public transportation. And as you might imagine, there is a pretty good reason why. I wasn’t kidding around when I said this is a board game for folks with a deviant streak. Best enjoyed by those who have no problem admitting they know that the average age of a prostitute in Europe is actually 25 (an actual question straight from the game) and not 19. HA!

Eat a bag of fun with this ‘gold at the end of the rainbow’ cookie cutter!

It’s not often that we at Dangerous Minds stoop to flaccid shilling for online products, but when we saw this “Somewhere Over the Rainbow Pot O’ Gold St. Patricks Day Cookie Cutter,” we thought, “That really looks like something we’d like to get our hands on.”

This cookie cutter is, ostensibly, used to make cookies that look like a rainbow bursting forth from a cloud and landing in a pot o’ gold. We guess.
 

 
If you were thinking “it looks more like a huge limp cock,” you weren’t the only one. 

The folks at fastcompany.com went to the trouble of emailing the manufacturer of the cookie-cutter, TheFussyPup, to ask if anyone had ever suggested the cutter might resemble anything other than a cloud, rainbow, and pot o’ gold—had anyone ever suggested it bared a passing resemblance to a huge dangling dick and furry balls?

A spokesperson for the company responded that she didn’t realize the cutter resembled anything else when her sister designed it—until they showed it to some friends.
 

 
According to Kimberly Wolfe, one of the proprietors of TheFussyPup:

One pointed out its resemblance to the male organ. We had a little giggle and dismissed the thought. While making adult theme cookie cutters isn’t our main goal, we are happy to provide cookie cutters for any occasion—and we love to see the creativity of our customers! Now if only someone would send me a picture of the results!

That sounds like a challenge.

Some may already be up to that challenge, as one five-star review on Amazon suggests: “I used this to bake a whole bunch of cookies, put them in a bag, gave them to somebody, and said, ‘Eat a bag of these!’”

Super goth and miniature artist Jenny Nightfall is a UK based dollhouse furniture maker with a penchant for evil little things that definitely don’t belong in your daughter’s—or son’s, I don’t judge and neither should you—dollhouse.

Of particular interest in Nightfall’s large collection of unusual items is her line of BDSM-themed dollhouse furniture. Made by hand using all kinds of materials including leather and latex, Nightfall’s kinky furniture is made at a 1/12 scale. And she DID NOT skimp on the details. For instance, her miniature bondage/fetish cabinet includes an assortment of tiny implements you would expect to find in any well stocked BDSM environment like leather paddles, whips, naughty books, handcuffs, a spreader bar, rope, candles, plugs, bondage hooks, a mask, a ball gag, erotic playing cards, spiked stiletto heels and much more.

Nightfall also has an extensive line of horror/goth/steampunk dollhouse furniture if that’s more your thing (and who knew this was a thing until now?). The BDSM pieces by Nightfall, which seem collectable on their own even if you don’t have a dollhouse, run from about $15 - $160 each.
