In this week’s sex in the news I look at reports that the Playboy Mansion is up for sale, VR porn, our man with the bionic penis’s return to the news and much more.

Playboy Mansion up for sale

 

 

 

 

Let’s start with the week’s biggest sex story. The Playboy Mansion – the scene of so many sexual shenanigans involving celebrities, playboy bunnies and the now 89 year old Hugh Hefner – is now up for sale for $200 million. Apparently it’s a bit of a dump inside and needs extensive renovation but it sits on large amount of fabulously expensive land developers say could return a buyers money four times over. Yet there’s a catch. Aging Hefner comes with the property. You literally have to wait for him to die before you won it. What’s more, Hefners wide Crystal Harris also comes with the property. It’s not clear what her role will be once Hefner departs!

VR porn at the CES

Journalist Will Fulton finally got round to trying what I tried nearly a year ago, virtual reality (VR) porn. Fulton says he tried it in a hotel suite. I’m not sure why he needed that much secrecy, no one can see what you’re watching Will – unless you were giving it a thorough road testing, lit candles and whipped out the lube?

Time for fashionista’s to remove their ad-blockers?

Shane Diesel monstercock brand ambassador

Diesels new Brand ambassador?

Edgy Italian fashion brand, Diesel have announced they will begin advertising on porn sites. Creative director, Nicola Formichetti said “I kept thinking, what is the most viewed website in the whole world?” And I was like: ‘Porn sites!’”

As a pornsite owner I think Formichetti might still be living in the 90s. Porn is popular but I’m pretty sure Facebook, Twitter and most media and shopping sites are way bigger than porn now. There’s a reason there are no porn billionaires Nicola. Maybe things are different in Italy as during the time I spent there they were still sending faxes?

I nominate hard-to-believe-that’s-real-and-not-special-effects huge pornstar, Shane Diesel, as brand ambassador. You heard it here first folks!

Bionic Penis Man will finally lose his virginity

Sex worker, escort and dominatrix Charlotte Rose

Charlotte Rose

According to the UK’s The Sun newspaper, Mohammed Abad, from Edinburgh will finally lose his virginity. Although this is in the humour section of my site it’s actually a heart warming story. It’s amazing that he has been fitted with a bionic penis after losing it in an accident when he was young.

The lucky lady will be Charlotte Rose, a dominatrix  and sexual freedom campaigner famous for being friends with hysterical British MP Lembit Opit of cheeky girl fame.

Mohammed told The Sun “I have waited long enough for this – it’ll be a great start to the new year. My penis is working perfectly now so I just want to do it. I’m really excited. I can’t wait for it to finally happen.

The pair will meet for a dinner date in London this week to “get to know each other”. I wish Mohammed all the luck in the world. I think he’s in good hands.

I love how much space even the most serious newspapers and magazines give to stories when there’s the slightest whiff of sex or porn about it. Here are more of the most covered sex stories from the news this week.

  • Ah the mansion my old workplace; Night Calls still one of the better PlayboyTV shows. Yea, it needs some renovations but besides Heff wanting a lifetime rent lease there are a ton of historical societies that want to place the property as a historic location which long term would prevent any developer from coming in and messing with it. Still I’ll miss the place, especially the game room; nothing quite like playing Ms Pacman while playing with Ms Pacman. I wonder what will happen with all the zoo animals, guess they will be shipped off to the LA Zoo or some animal preserve

    Playboy Mansion – To be fair, Hef probably isn’t going to be in the picture that much longer: the refurb cost (if that’s what happens) is likely to be a more pressing issue. Not likely to be a big practical consideration for me, but a part of my imagination will always live there.

    Virtual porn – I’m a big fan of 3D but, apart from that, this seems like a pretty passive experience. I can see the wisdom of experiencing it in guaranteed isolation: with the VR helmet on, who knows who is meandering around being amused at what you’re getting up to?

    Fashion ad-blockers – This doesn’t impact me much so I don’t hold much of an opinion. My experience of internet advertising suggests that page 1 on a google search is effective, and social media isn’t.

    Bionic penis – good luck to the poor sod.

    Dating advice from pornstars – my only experience here is the advice you offer, and that generally appears to be sound, compassionate and sensible. I imagine pornstars are same as anyone else in terms of their ability to be sensible, idiotic, or anywhere in between.

    Tinder – I get the impression that Tinder is primarily a site to facilitate hook-ups where the aim – for the men, at least – is speculatively sexual. In which case why would one expect commitment to go with it? I’m not saying it won’t ever happen, I’m just saying that I’m surprised that people are surprised that it tends not to.

    Sex in the gym – I’m not surprised. I imagine the endorphin rush triggers randiness. Perhaps gyms could make a few bob extra by having dedicated facilities available for those who feel a need to indulge their bulges.

    Dinosaur sex – Tyrannosaurus Sex. Pterofucktyls. I could spend hours pursuing dinosaur sex puns, but sadly work beckons. And I’m not terribly interested in animal sex anyway( Harry Harrison wrote a series of novels which involved human/dinosaur sex, and I understand there is a fair amount of it on the Net if it floats your boat. It doesn’t float mine, however).
