"THIS TREATMENT WILL BE FREE"

Hoipolloi Cassidy | According to Elizabeth Ann Danto (Hunter School of Social Work) Freud and his followers developed their theories within a radical project to reorganize society, a project that was crushed with the advent of the Nazis, and crushed again with the development of conformist psychoanalytic practices in America. more...  0 Comments

Getting on the Good Foot

Sarah Paterson | Men at foot parties can be divided into six overlapping categories: massagers, toe suckers, ticklers, tramplees, foot job guys and sissy boys/voyeurists. Fetishes invariably take on a different coloring when they are transformed into paid services. Everything looks a bit more bizarre under the bordello-red lighting of a dungeon, even a fetish as “tame” as foot worship. more...  1 Comments

When it Snows, Where Do the Homeless Stay?

Jason Gooljar | Yes, I know it's snowing outside in New York and throughout the northeast and other regions. It does this every year without fail. It does look like a blizzard and I'm quite sure there will be a tremendous amount of snowfall. But a thought came to mind this time. It had to do with the homeless population. In times of inclimate weather, where do they go? more...  3 Comments

Since you ask, I am not talking about the global menace of Scandinavian cartoonists that has so terrified our fearless free press, but mass arrests in Iran.

Crunchy Granola Porn (The Indypendent)

ARTHUR JONES | Posing on the beach in Santa Cruz and in their natural habitat in the woods outside of Portland, Oregon, these dreadlocked beauties don’t bother to shave their armpits much less their pubes. Nor do they splay their snatches, wag their booties, do penetration shots or affect the fuck-me look so common to internet porn. more...  3 Comments

When Porn Was (kinda) Sweet: A Review (The Indypendent)

CHARLIE BASS | In his best films (Score, The Lickerish Quartet, The Opening of Misty Beethoven), Radley Metzger achieves a kind of playful art-porn grandeur. In Metzger’s world, sex becomes the common denominator, and he glosses over any distinctions of class, race or sexual orientation: All that matters is each character’s ability. more...  0 Comments

DAVID JASPER | Christian right’s American Family Association (AFA) has also been in discussions with Ford to sever ties with gay community markets.
