A brothel full of sex dolls has opened up in Barcelona, Spain.
Lumi Dolls offers four models that anyone can reserve for a set amount of time. Thanks to new technology , Lumi Dolls brags that its dolls are among the most realistic on the market -- and they cost around euro 120 per hour. The brothel offers
other services as well, including overnight stays and options for couples.
Each of the models come complete with a sort of character page on the Lumi Dolls website, which houses a description of the doll's anatomy, creative inspiration, and what to look forward to in the doll's room.
Noticeably absent from the Lumi Dolls cast are any male doll models. And it's not like the technology doesn't exist. It would seem that the company believes straight men are set to be the most lucrative market, at least for now.
Lumi Doll's products might not have artificial intelligence yet , but there are various sex doll companies working on implementing A.I. into their toys . Regardless, opening up a sex doll brothel is a step toward developing these sorts of
creations and services.
The Royal Navy has banned posters of glamour models so as not to offend women sailors after some complained of feeling intimidated by the soft
Perhaps the banning of public space pin ups is understandable in these PC times but the Navy's rules go further and effectively ban sailors from all but a tiny portion of available porn.
Sailors were told about the ban when they were given an amended version of the Royal Navy's Queen Regulations. A new section titled Pin-ups and Pornography reads:
Possession of films/videos and all forms of digital media (e.g DvDs, or downloads from the internet) that have been certified by the British Board of Film Censors is permitted. All other pornographic material is prohibited.
A Naval source told The Sun about these miserable rules:
To be fair, this is part of the service coming into the 21st Century, being more inclusive and not offending women.
But a lot of the lads are moaning about this because porn has been rife across the fleet for generations, and this is the result of a few people complaining.
Playboy magazine has announced it is bringing back nudity, reversing a decision made last year.
The move was announced by Playboy's new chief creative officer Cooper Hefner, who said the decision to remove nudity entirely was a mistake . He tweeted:
Today we're taking our identity back and reclaiming who we are.
Nudity was never the problem because nudity isn't a problem
The US magazine also promoted its March-April edition with a picture of its playmate of the month with the hashtag #NakedIsNormal.
Some social media users welcomed the U-turn, describing it as a good call , while others said the decision was taken because the magazines weren't selling too well. Too bad free porn is still easy to access .
Samir Husni, a journalism professor at the University of Mississippi, said Playboy's ban on nudity had probably alienated more readers than it attracted. He told the Associated Press:
Playboy and the idea of non-nudity is sort of an oxymoron,
In next month's issue, the magazine will also revive some of its old franchises, including The Playboy Philosophy and Party Jokes. However, Playboy will drop the subtitle Entertainment for Men from its covers.
Backpage.com, one of the world's largest classified ad websites and a frequent target in the political battle
against sex work, closed its adult ads section Monday in the United States after becoming the victim of a government witch hunt.
The move came shortly after the release of a U.S. Senate report that accused Backpage of hiding criminal activity by deleting terms from ads that indicated prostitution.
The abrupt closure came on the eve of the scheduled testimony of Backpage's founders, Michael Lacey and James Larkin, and the site's CEO, Carl Ferrer, before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs' subcommittee on
To keep problematic ads online, the company edited them. One moderator said he removed material that was obviously indicative of prostitution but the post remained published. According to the Senate report, the moderator testified under oath: [M]y
responsibility was to make the ads OK to run live on the site, because having to get rid of the ad altogether was bad for business.
By late Monday, visitors to Backpage saw censored tags in red font under the adult section's menu of escorts, body rubs and strippers. Other sections remained operative, including for cars, real estate and childcare. Backpage said:
Like the decision by Craigslist to remove its adult category in 2010, this announcement is the culmination of years of effort by government at various levels to exert pressure on Backpage.com and to make it too costly to continue.
