Sex News Round Up

From XBiz:
U.S. Judge Rules Md. County’s Strip Club Law Unconstitutional
“A federal judge Thursday struck down a Prince George’s County law that would have erased from the map most strip clubs that serve alcohol.

U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis ruled that the Maryland Legislature went too far with a law that would ban exotic dancing, peep shows and lap dances anywhere with a liquor license, finding it would place unconstitutional limits on free speech while violating the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection.


Legislators had sculpted a very particular grandfather clause into the bill, allowing any nightclub that received an adult entertainment license before Aug. 15, 1981, to remain in business.

The federal judge ruled foul, because not so coincidentally the former Maryland state senator Tommie Broadwater owns a gentlemen’s club that received a license on Aug. 14, 1981.”

How sleazy is that? I’m glad the club fought it.

From AVN:
‘Fallen porn star’ rises again thanks to Video-X-Pix reissue of classic ‘Deep Inside’ film
“Annie Sprinkle is one of the most talented, gracious and enduring stars in the annals of porn … so imagine how happy we were to receive this latest update from her:


“PS: The daily paper in Norway (like the NY Post) where I was doing an exciting art project with my wonderful wifey Beth some months ago called me a ‘fallen porn star.’ If this is what it is to fall, please let me fall further.”"

I love how porn positive Annie is. She rocks!

From the BBC:
Naked pole vaulter chases sponsor
” A French pole vaulter has run naked with his pole through Paris and posted the video on the internet in an effort to secure a new sponsorship deal.

Romain Mesnil, 31, who won silver at the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, has not had his contract with Nike renewed after it expired last year.


Mesnil is also hoping to raise money for two charities.”

Video of naked pole vaulter? I like it.

From the New Scientist:
Spanking ‘brings couples together’
“Spanking is stressful at first, but it could bring consenting couples closer together. That’s the implication of two studies of hormonal changes associated with sadomasochistic (S&M) activities including spanking, bondage and flogging.

Brad Sagarin at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb and colleagues measured levels of the stress hormone cortisol in 13 men and women at an S&M party in Arizona, before, during and after participating in activities. During S&M scenes, cortisol rose significantly in those receiving stimulation, but dropped back to normal within 40 minutes if the scene went well. There was no change in those inflicting the activity.

At an S&M event in Colorado, testosterone was measured in 45 men and women. It increased significantly in receiving women only. Donatella Marazziti of the University of Pisa, Italy, says the boost may help women cope with the aggressive nature of S&M activities, or that it could be another sign of stress. In both studies, couples who said the party went well also reported increases in relationship closeness (Archives of Sexual Behavior, DOI: 10.1007/s10508-008-9374-5).”

The pervert in me totally got a kick out of this article.
