    Founder and editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner, 89, who in his trademark silk pajamas has embodied the Playboy lifestyle, agreed last month with a suggestion by top editor Cory Jones to stop publishing images of naked women, the Times said. At a time when every teenage boy has an Internet connected phone and the web is rife with pornography, the magazine has opted to continue featuring women in provocative poses, just not completely nude, the Times said. "You're now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free," Flanders was quoted as saying in the Times. "And so it's just passe...

    Always game to push the boundaries of the portrayal of awkward sex on television, merely a few short minutes into Girls’ fourth season, Lena Dunham managed to up the squirm factor by tossing in some unexpected butt play between Marnie (Allison Williams) and Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). We caught up with the cast (and Brian Williams) at the season four premiere and asked them — as delicately as we could — their thoughts on the soon-to-be-infamous sex scene.

    An East Bethel teenager is accused of squeezing through a neighbor's doggy door to help feed a pornography addiction. The neighbor allegedly caught the 18-year-old on surveillance footage after noticing several items missing from his East Bethel house, according to a criminal complaint filed in Anoka County District Court. Darin Paul Pake, 44, told investigators the footage showed Amanda Rose Owens - his children's former baby sitter - sliding into his house through his doggy door at 7:50 a.m. Monday. She is then seen rummaging through Pake's things and grabbing a Red Bull out of his refrigerator before leaving at...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A sizeable stash of pornography was among the items seized when U.S. Navy SEALs raided the Pakistani hideout of Osama bin Laden, almost two weeks ago, U.S. officials say. The officials said it was unclear who the material belonged to, and there was no way to know whether bin Laden had viewed it. (snip) The pornography was among the computer materials confiscated in the raid after the SEALs killed bin Laden, ending an almost ten-year manhunt for the terrorist behind the 9/11 terror attacks.
  • No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches? Call it Pornistan (Pakistan #1....anyone surprised?)

    They may call it the "Land of the Pure," but Pakistan turns out to be anything but. The Muslim country, which has banned content on at least 17 websites to block offensive and blasphemous material, is the world's leader in online searches for pornographic material, has learned. “You won’t find strip clubs in Islamic countries. Most Islamic countries have certain dress codes,” said Gabriel Said Reynolds, professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Notre Dame. “It would be an irony if they haven’t shown the same vigilance to pornography.” So here's the irony: Google ranks Pakistan No. 1...

A man in Cookeville, Tennessee, is thinking about suing Wal-Mart because the MP3 video player he gave to his little girl for Christmas turned out to be loaded with explicit tunes and porn videos. Daryl Hill says the 10-year-old child burst into tears when she saw it. He says he just wishes he could get those "thoughts and images" out of her head. Hill figures the player must have been returned by somebody who had loaded it with sex clips and songs about drugs. Wal-Mart says it's investigating because returned items...

Starting Monday, Vivid Entertainment says it will sell its adult films through the online movie service CinemaNow, allowing buyers to burn DVDs that will play on any screen, not just a computer. It's another first for adult film companies that pioneered the home video market and rushed to the Internet when Hollywood studios still saw it as a threat. "Leave...

    NEW YORK -- A red-light district tentatively cleared for construction on the Internet -- the ''.xxx'' domain -- is being billed by backers as giving the online porn industry an opportunity to clean up its act. A distinct online sector for the salacious will reduce the chances of Internet users accidentally stumbling onto porn sites, they argue. If only it were so simple. Zoning in cyberspace has always been a daunting proposition, and participation in the porn domain will be voluntary.

    WASHINGTON -- The naked truth, the Supreme Court says, is that the Constitution's free speech guarantee doesn't protect a police officer who used the Internet to sell videotapes of himself stripping off his uniform and pretending to write tickets. The court traditionally has been very protective of speech rights. But justices had no sympathy Monday for a former San Diego officer who uses the Internet name "codestud3," a play on words incorporating the term for an emergency police call. The policeman, identified in court papers only as "John Roe," contended his free speech rights were violated when his bosses learned...

"We're so afraid to talk about sex in our society that we really give carte blanche to the people who are producing this kind of material," said James B. Weaver, a Virginia Tech professor who studies the impact of pornography. Internet pornography is corrupting children and hooking adults into an addiction that threatens their jobs and families, a panel of anti-porn advocates told the hearing organized by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., chairman of the Commerce...

    NEW YORK - After 35 years in the business of titillating and offending, pornographer Al Goldstein says his magazine can't compete anymore. The audience is just as large, he says, but the Internet has transformed the product and its delivery. Just over a month ago, Goldstein stopped publishing Screw magazine and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, giving him a chance to cut costs, relaunch the magazine and refocus attention on his Web site. Similar pressures are seen throughout the adult publishing field. Bob Guccione's General Media Inc., for instance, has also filed for Chapter 11 protection, although the company's trademark...
