"The line between intentional and inadvertent exposure can be blurry in a context where inmates do not control their privacy and cells are sometimes defined as public places. What’s more, some experts on prison sex contend that anti-masturbation and anti-porn policies in prisons are counterproductive because they effectively drive inmates to engage in risky sexual behavior. According to this theory, increased access to pornography—which goes hand-in-hand with increased access to one’s doo-dads—might be just what correctional facilities need to stem prison rape. Is it time for a revolution in prisoners’ masturbatory rights

Even geeks need to reach out and touch someone.
Found while browsing today, a site (mentioned once, in a comment, by its author here
) dedicated to the other
kind of technolust. For those times when you just cannot be physically close to the one you love/lust/hook-up-with. Or whatever it is you kids are doing these days, with your newfangled "Internet" and "Computers."
I think that, instead of trying to be witty about it, I'll let its content speak for itself.

"He was young and handsome, his mother's hope".
Yes, the scourge of Onanism
has long plagued our young people, causing them no end of misery
, and high ISP fees
One champion of choice, our good friend Mark Twain, delivered a stirring lecture
to the Stomach Club in Paris, 1879, to defend our right to love ourselves. Bless his crusty old heart.

Have you or your neighbors killed any kittens lately?
Way back in the mists of time, a farkism
combined a kitty with a couple of domo-kuns
and came up with a saying equating masturbation with killing a kitty.
has taken the concept and is attempting to make it into a community weblog -- except the community is limited to those who are taking solo flights into orgasm.
The site seems almost innocent, at least now (though it'll probably get over-run with explicit commercial grossness in a while).
Although the interface is nowhere near as clean, my experience with the site reminded me of the early days of amihotornot. I was at it for hours, tripping out on who was masturbating in my state, and what they were thinking, let along who was doing what in other places all over the world (not many global participants, yet).
With this wierd mixture of deeply personal revelations and total anonymity, is this one of those things that only the internet can do? Or am I a total git for thinking this is interesting? (via memepool
