A seven-days long quickie (news): #PrideMonth, International Whores Day, the million-dollar vibrator…

A brief overview of what’s happened over the last week #InSearchOfPleasure.

June is #PrideMonth

June is the month celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.
The month that love and humanity spread across the world.
The month of people’s pride of being who they are: human beings first. Human beings who love human beings. Of every gender and orientation.
The month kicking February, Valentine’s Day and heart-shaped chocolates’ ass.
‘Cause love is free. It has no shape and no colour. It’s all colours.
Love is more like a polychrome party of smiles, glitters and feathers crossing all boundaries, rather than a monochrome elite party for two lasting the time of a three-course dinner. #LoveIsLove
This #PrideMonth started with a moving letter from Ariana Grande to the LGBTQ Community published by Billboard.

If you’re looking for the best place where to be proud, here are The 10 top Gay Prides of 2018!

International Whore’s Day – #sexworkiswork

The 2nd of June was International Whore’s Day (IWD), also known as International Sex Workers Day, created to commemorate the 1975 occupation of Église Saint-Nizier in Lyon, France by thousands of sex workers, who were protesting police brutality.
Its symbol is the red umbrella and was first used by sex workers in Venice, Italy in 2001 when Slovenian artist Tadej Pogacar collaborated with sex workers to create the “Prostitute Pavillion” and CODE: RED art installation. During the 49th Venice Biennale of Art, sex workers from different countries marched the streets of Venice in a Red Umbrellas March, using megaphones and red umbrellas, drawing attention to the bad work conditions and the human rights abuses they face. The march started at the Pavilion tent and went through the city centre, incorporating the geography of the social history of sex workers.
In 2005 the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe (ICRSE) adopted the red umbrella as a symbol of resistance to discrimination and it quickly became a global symbol for sex workers’ rights.
This year the IWD is particularly important, as the US government recently passed the SESTA/FOSTA (Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act / Fight Sex Trafficking Online Act) law that’s putting sex workers’ lives at risk.
The new law intends to curb sex trafficking by holding online platforms liable for their users’ potentially illegal activity but it makes no distinction for consensual sex work. spurring the closure of several popular online spaces frequented by sex workers. This is causing the closure of sex advertising platforms, websites, discussion forums and other safe online spaces sex workers use to communicate, advertise, find and vet clients.
As a result, sex workers are being forced to return to pimps and find clients on the streets, where they are easy targets for exploitation and abuse.
In celebration of all sex workers, you can have a read through the archive of Slutever’s SEX WORK DIARIES column, where sex workers tell their own stories.

The upcoming proper and premature Netflix’s Sense8

The Sense8 series’ finale special will launch globally on Netflix on June 8.
The series is probably the best show ever for LGBTQ+ representation, where love crosses all national, gender and sexual borders. It was cancelled last year on the 1st of June, just a few weeks after the premiere of season 2, causing an unexpected huge media outcry.

Risky sexual games: famous accidents

Two recent sexual accidents went viral around the world this week, both coming from Kama Sutra’s homeland.

A 26-year-old man turned up at a hospital in New Delhi with a 6-inch hand-held shower head up his backside after he “accidentally slipped” in the bathroom (here’s the news).

A 55-year-old man went to the hospital with bleeding and difficulty weeing two months after a pen tip got stuck up his urethra after a sex act went wrong (here’s the news).

It all sounds so weird now that an increasing number of sex toy brands is designing and putting on the market male pleasure items that are beautiful, functional and body-safe. I can think of Tenga, the Japanese brand of sex toys for penis, recognizable for design and technology (the newborn is the Tenga FLIP 0 EV, tested and reviewed by my better half here) or Aneros, the brand focused on the design of prostate massagers that take care of male sexual pleasure and health. LELO, the Swedish giant of luxury sex toys, has a collection of toys for men too, including prostate massagers and penis rings.

The million-dollar vibrator goes on tour

Pearl Royal is a vibrator with a platinum body covered with 2,000 flawless sparkling diamonds, some royal-blue sapphires and rare pink diamonds plus lustrous South Sea pearls, which is valued of one million dollars. Its creation took around 15 years and now the Australian jeweler Colin Burn is currently on a trip through Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami and New York, looking for gallery owners willing to display his piece along with other items from his collection in a show that he’d call “Olisbos,” or Greek for “dildo.”
