This is the weekly Lust news roundup: catch up on the week’s sex-tech, sex-politics, porn for women feminism, and industry news here every week.

News Roundup:

Emma Barnett: Women want better sex. So, what needs to change if we're ever going to tackle the gender pleasure gap? — A conversation with a sociologist professor on using language to tackle the orgasm gap. “By the very act of naming some of these positions which can increase women’s chances of pleasure – not only is she legitimising the need to deserve pleasure from sex, but she is also giving women the tools to express wishes in an area many still find so hard to broach.” [Glamour UK]

Do You Actually Know Your Own Implicit and Explicit Sexual Boundaries? You Should. And this detailed look into what they are will help you do just that. “Respecting boundaries is a two-way street: just as you have a right to assert your own boundaries and have them respected, you have an obligation to respect the ones others set for themselves, whether or not they’ve been made explicit.” [InsideHook]

And, if you’ve ever felt you’ve had a boundary crossed by a sexual partner, my Content Coordinator, Kimberly, explains how to redefine them in the Lust Guide to the XConfessions App: What Are Sexual Boundaries? How to Define & Redefine Them.

A DEEP DIVE INTO THE WONDERFUL AND WORRYING REALMS OF VAGINATOK – Debunking myths and applauding the spread of sex-positive truths on vaginal sexual health through TikTok. [Dazed]

How Porn's Racist Metadata Hurts Adult Performers of Color — How free tube sites continue to dehumanise BIPOC performers through harmful hashtags and search terms. “This means performers of color benefit from leveraging racialized hashtags and search terms—it helps them reach the audience most likely to follow through with clicks, views, and purchases. But it also means many of them aren’t receiving the benefits that name recognition offers.” [Wired]

How Often Do Men Masturbate & Can You Masturbate Too Much? A look into how often men masturbate, and the differences between healthy & unhealthy masturbation. “The biggest risks of frequent masturbation have more to do with how a person masturbates than how often they do it.” [mindbodygreen]

Let's Play a Game

I find something highly erotic in playing pool. Bending over the table. The stick. The balls. It is oddly satisfying when one of them falls into the hole. To sink a ball you have to know when to hit it hard and when to do it softly. And it is not so easy to concentrate if your opponent is wearing sexy short dress and before the game you made an interesting bet. The one you just can't lose.
