Tweet of the Week:
I couldn’t choose just one Tweet this week so here are two of my favourites…
Face slapping should not be considered a standard thing in porn. Neither should spitting choking or even spanking. I LOVE to get choked but i also wouldn’t want someone to choke me without CHECKING first that I’m okay with it and how i like it!!

US porn is more corporate than ever, sad to say. Most female directors are being dictated to by men in the real power positions, their orders driven by algorithms and search engine data.
