Friday news is having one of those days…

25 Feb

… you know the sort of day, where you get sucked into the endless spiral that is The Internet and suddenly you find it’s half three and you’ve been compulsively clicking links on wikipedia and you know more about obscure diseases than you even thought you wanted or needed to know. Except being me, and knowing where I work (here, in case you didn’t know), I’ve not been looking at wikipedia. I’ve been looking at the opendildonics wiki, and looking into home-made sex toys.

I’ve already wondered what would happen if there was an accident and your home-made dildo made from a condom filled with grit split [Vaginal Arts & Crafts] and considered how to explain what I’m doing with a pile of cornflower (also, it needs food dye) [Chinasmack]. Although this homemade fleshlight is still the winner for sheer MacGyver-tastic brilliance. Obviously, if you’re not so keen on getting crafty before playtime, we can help you with that.

I’m a little bit in love with this blog, Post Modern Sleaze.

Oh, and ice cream made from breast milk has gone on sale in Covent Garden [BBC].

Filament’s Suraya Singh Sidu on Dusk, a porn channel aimed at women in The Netherlands [Good Vibrations].

Cambridge University’s Union held a debate on the motion “This house believes that pornography does a good public service” – and the motion was passed. Anna Span wrote her account of the debate for AVN; Cambridge First summed up the debate as well.

February 22nd was Lady Porn Day

an opportunity for ladies of all genders (or however you identify) to open up a dialog: What is feminist porn? What is your history with porn? What do you find hot? And ultimately it’s a dare to share your hot links. Because the more we can openly talk about porn and what we like, the more likely it is that porn for women will continue being made

– there are lots of links to excellent posts on the site, as well as some in-house interviews, like this one with queer porn  actress and activist Jiz Lee.

Talking of porn, you might have noticed the new reviews tab up at the top of the page. If you’ve bought something from CCK, tell us about it! (or if it’s something you bought elsewhere that we sell). And because the 3rd of March is World Book Day, we’ll be celebrating all our favourite kinky books – so tell us what yours are, and maybe we’ll feature them on the blog! (we’ll definitely enter them for the monthly review raffle, where each review is a ticket to the draw for some goodies from the CCK shop).

 

And those were your links! Enjoy – and have a superb, possibly kinky, weekend. I’m off to knit. – Emma

Friday News!

14 Jan

I’m writing this sitting in our staff meeting – shh, don’t tell anyone – because I will not be late this week. And because I want to go to the pub with everyone else (we know how to team build).

With all of these links, they are not CCK content, and do not necessarily express the views of CCK (we just think they’re interesting). Content may not be suitable for under-18s, workplace viewing, or be particularly kinky. On with the linky goodness!


What if Tunisia had a revolution and nobody noticed? [My heart’s in Accra]. There’s a liveblog at EA WorldView.

March is Women’s History Month [The F-Word].

The Women’s Library is hosting an exhibition by the ceramic artist Nicola Malkin, as a part of their exhibition on women and domestic crafts (which is excellent, by the way – E) [The Women’s Library].

The Adipositivity Project is a gorgeous project aiming to widen the definitions of beauty through photography.

Nominate insipiring women for The Guardian’s list celebrating the 100th International Women’s Day [The Guardian].

Possibly including someone of this list of ten things invented by women [Women’s History Month].

Kaliya Franklin on why the disability living allowance cuts are relevant to all [The Guardian].

And bringing the funny for today – what America has learnt about British Justice system from Law and Order: UK.
