Mindbrowse.com and Sssh.com will host a discussion on “Presenting Sex: Diversification, Inclusivity and Content Production in 2020,” at the upcoming 2020 XBIZ Show.

The event will be held Tuesday, January 14 at 2 p.m. in the Andaz Hotel (Studio 4) in L.A. and will also be broadcast live via Periscope on Twitter at @ssshforwomen.

In terms of actual content produced, as well as within the community itself, the adult industry has made significant strides related to diversity and inclusivity in recent years. And though there’s still plenty of room for improvement, the industry shows no sign of deviating from this path.

But how does this process feel to performers living it in real time? Moreover, how does an increasingly inclusive community feel when placed alongside consumer demands that may not feel quite as progressive?

Needed: International Pleasure Product Recycling Effort

Reading Time: 4 minutes

It’s always tempting to assume that there’s some kind of trend in the works whenever you see the same kind of pleasure story hitting the news several times in a relatively short period of time! And since Calico is pretty bad at resisting temptation, she’s taking three similar incidents happening around the world in less than 12 months as ironclad, incontrovertible proof of a major international epidemic.

Sure, it’s possible these incidents are completely disconnected, possible there’s no major trend and possible Calico is just getting overly worked up about all of this because she ‘accidentally’ brewed and consumed two extra pots of coffee this morning. But, it’s also possible she’s onto something — and that only urgent, extreme and totally panicked action on the part of governments around the world can solve the problem.

So, what is this very concerning, super threatening yet largely ignored international epidemic? Find out in Calico’s latest post, “Needed: International Pleasure Product Recycling Effort”

Speak for Yourself, “Mesmerized” Slug Sex Voyeurs

While she doesn’t like to get TOO picky, Calico is the first to admit she can get a bit hung up on word choices people make, especially when they choose a word with a definition that sets the bar high for its use.

So, when Calico saw a headline which promised to reveal “mesmerizing” details of the sex lives of the article’s subject, she immediately wondered whether the story would live up to the headline’s hype. 

After all, some of the other news headlines using “mesmerizing” involved things like golf club lockers (whatever the hell those are) and the biography of a cherished, recently deceased actress — which, interesting though they may be, fall well short of anything Calico would find mesmerizing. Mesmerized???

What sort of sex life details did the headline writer find so fascinating? Did it pass Calico’s semantic test for the “mesmerizing” threshold? Find out in Calico’s latest post, “Speak for Yourself, ‘Mesmerized’ Slug-Sex Voyeurs”

Do I WANT To Know The Weird News Backstory Here?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Well, 2020 is off to a great start in the weird news department — even if you’re not a White House correspondent. Just a matter of hours into the new year and we already had reports of a carjacking that spanned state lines, originated in a truck parked outside an adult video store… and involved a goat.

What was the goat’s role in the carjacking, you might ask? Well, it’s safe to say he wasn’t driving the truck, even with a gun pointed at his head, because goats generally are law-abiding creatures and they don’t issue drivers licenses to livestock in Missouri.

No, the goat was an innocent here — and, thankfully, so far as we’re aware, the goat emerged from the incident with his innocence intact, as well.

If you’re wondering why someone had a goat in the car with them in the parking lot of an adult video store, I’m sure you’re not alone — but Calico isn’t certain she wants an answer to that question. Find out why in her latest post, “Do I WANT To Know The Weird News Backstory Here?”

The Five Best, Weirdest and/or Dumbest Sex Stories of 2019

2019 2020 new years resolutionAs 2019 wraps up, Calico looks back on the previous 12 months and selects a handful of the oddest, silliest, grossest, stupidest sex-related stories that have come across her radar during the year.

From sex robots and hacker-compromised “smart” sex toys to people getting sued for throwing out their son’s porn collections, Calico had a lot to choose from in 2019, so whittling it down to just five choices was no easy task.

Who and what made the list? To find out, read Calico’s 2019-closing post, “The Five Best, Weirdest and/or Dumbest Sex Stories of 2019″

This Sort of Thing Didn’t Happen Back in the Days of Horse Drawn Carriages

Everywhere you look these days, people are blaming technology for their problems. From people who think teenagers used to LIKE talking to their parents before smartphones were invented to pundits who fret that robots will take all our jobs by 2030, tech-blaming is becoming the new national pastime.

Now, you might expect Calico to decry this, or to counsel us all to keep in mind that technology is neutral and it’s people who decide how technology is used, but the truth is the tech haters have won her over. She no longer believes technological progress is necessarily a good thing.

And if there’s one area of life where people haven’t blamed technology enough, it’s in the transportation sector, Calico believes. Ever since we transitioned to automobiles, airplanes and various other rapid transport methods, we’ve been inundated with exposure to all manner of depravity, much of it in open view to innocent members of the public.
