Photos by Luo Yang: ‘GIRLS’ in present-day China

Just found on Feature Shoot, and not to be missed: Intimate and defiant portraits of ‘GIRLS’ in present-day China. Snip:

Described as one of the “rising stars of Chinese photography” by Ai Wewei in 2012, Beijing-based Luo Yang is gaining international recognition for her candid photographs of women in contemporary China. GIRLS began in 2007 as a deeply personal series, for in her subjects, Luo observed emotions and questions very similar to her own.

… The photographer simultaneously manages to convey the girls’ defiance and ultra-cool composure, alongside their vulnerability, shyness and insecurities. Luo elaborates: “I can’t say that they represent a whole new generation of women in China, but they are absolutely a group of women who represent independence and freedom”.

Sex News: FTC after Ashley Madison, harassment at Fox, UK porn penalties, new condom technology

  • “Avid Life Media (ALM), the parent company of hacked adultery website Ashley Madison, is facing a US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) probe over its use of automated software called ‘fembots’ on its websites, which impersonated real women to lure in male customers.”

  • “The U.K. government today published its Digital Economy Bill, which includes a section that would create an age-verification regulator and impose financial penalties for noncomplying adult entertainment sites that stream content into the nation, as well as their payment service providers and advertisers. The bill goes well past the borders of the nation and particularly targets the flood of foreign adult tube sites that don’t have age verification systems in place to guard against access to those under the age of 18. Those sites typically solely rely on advertising and not memberships to capture revenue streams. The proposal also creates a federal age-verification regulator that could divvy out fines of up to £250,000, or 5 percent of a company’s revenue, when appropriate, to offending adult sites.”

  • “A regulatory system that’s supposed to punish doctors who sexually abuse patients often shields them from public shame, a national investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found. Secret penalties levied by state medical boards, vague language in their public orders and diversion programs through which offenders avoid punishment all make determining the scope of physician sexual misconduct impossible, the Journal-Constitution found. But the newspaper’s review of more than 100,000 medical board orders and other documents shows a broad phenomenon of doctors in every state preying on vulnerable patients.”

  • “[Chronic Fatigue Syndrome] impacts my masturbation as well. I have my go-to fantasies, the things that never let me down, but there are days where nothing quite gels. I want to come but my body won’t do it, and that’s when it gets super frustrating. I never had that experience before CFS; it’s very much related to my health.”

  • “In case you’re interested, June Korea – a 34-year-old South Korean photographer living in New York City – is the young man in each of these scenes. As reported by RocketNews24, Korea was struck by immense loneliness after realizing everyone he knows will eventually pass away. He then became fascinated by the idea of love dolls – especially their artificiality, and thus practical immortality.”

  • In a way, this makes sites like this one more valuable than ever. “The viral = good formula is especially effed when you think about queer folks, or any niche community not necessarily of interest to a social network that contains your entire family and everybody you’ve ever known in your entire life. Furthermore, wealthy publishers will retain the option to pay for boosted content or work with Facebook Instant — ensuring their stories will show up in your feed. Buzzfeed is estimated to spend over ten million dollars on Facebook boosting a year.”

Behind the scenes in the life of a dominatrix – Feature Shoot

Just found on Feature Shoot, Behind the scenes in the life of a dominatrix:

The key to BDSM, says New York City-based photographer Samir Abady, is trust. He’s witnessed the profound intimacy that enfolds inside the dungeon of a dominatrix; there have been moments so delicate that just the click of the shutter could break the spell. Kink is the photographer’s ongoing chronicle of women who venture into the professional world of BDSM, the submissives who confide in them, and the day-to-day goings on of their otherwise mundane — or, as Abady would say, “vanilla” — lives.
