Sep 21 delta35 commented on TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR THE 12TH ANNUAL HUMP! FILM FESTIVAL!.
A portion of HUMP! ticket sales in each HUMP! tour city should be donated to a local sex worker rights group of each city.

This will:
(a) help local sex workers;
(b) educate porn-positive festival goers about sex worker rights
(c) generate controversy - boosts ticket sales for HUMP! and dispel myths about decriminalization, trafficking etc.

Once upon a time porn was illegal. Conservatives and liberals were united against it, conservatives said it was immoral and liberals said it victimized women. It just wasn't true.

Fitting that a porn festival like HUMP! would lead the way in visibility for sex worker rights and decriminalization. Please have the festival donate a portion of ticket sales in each city to a local sex worker rights group! And highlight this in your program and web site!

@WISF Homeland Security has taken down rentboy.com, but rent boys are still around!

surprised Dan didn't mention this obvious solution to the imbalance in number of older guys seeking young 'uns. and for the "relationship" possibility if daddyhunt doesn't work out, how about an older guy who looks, you know, LIKE YOU!

Dan cited 2010 research by Wallwiener, Wallwiener and Wallwiener*:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20487…
*and other authors with not nearly as funny names

The Wallwiener et al. three-way in 2015 found opposite, women NOT using hormonal contraceptive had lowest sexual functioning:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25905…

"Median FSFI [Female Sexual Function Index] was significantly lower in non-users (24.4) versus users (28.7) of contraception (p < 0.001)." [both studies used German-speaking female med students, hardly representative of a general population, much better educated about bodies and sexual functioning]

So, science says maybe, maybe not.

@myself, well, "come" was 1650, "cum" was 1973. still, 40+yrs old enough to be acceptable usage by now (of course "cum" also has another meaning too, as in a "a study-cum-bedroom" according to OED). eats, shoots and leaves, eh?

@10 actually, it is in the dictionary: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/cum?s=t
dictionary.com uses "real" dictionary sources -- earliest published occurrence is 1650, is that respectable enough for Dan to start spelling it like EVERYONE does? :)

"verb and noun, by 1973, apparently a variant of the sexual sense of come that originated in pornographic writing, perhaps first in the noun sense. This "experience sexual orgasm" slang meaning of come (perhaps originally come off) is attested from 1650, in "Walking In A Meadowe Greene," in a folio of "loose songs" collected by Bishop Percy.

They lay soe close together, they made me much to wonder;
I knew not which was wether, until I saw her under.
Then off he came, and blusht for shame soe soon that he had endit;
Yet still she lies, and to him cryes, "one more and none can mend it."
As a noun meaning "semen or other product of orgasm" it is on record from the 1920s."

@20, maybe they should think of a sex worker / sex workers. A unicorn for pay is not so hard to come by (or with consent on or in) and they can pick one they both like.

@17 you're confusing the science on "men who have sex with men" with "out, open men who have sex with men." Two entirely different populations.

Open, out non-monogamous people I know (straight, gay, bi, male, female, whatevs) tend to be pretty safe when it comes to HIV risk.

It's the down low folks who are the risk -- all orientations and gender identities, especially men who have sex with men on the DL but that's a whole different group of people than out bi men. And we know that monogamous straight couples are at MORE risk of STIs than open relationship straight couples, due to high rates of risky cheating among ostensibly monogamous couples.

@6 you're writing it wrong (or reading it wrong). If someone says MMF, then by definition they are describing / wanting MM contact as well as MF. If it's a three way with little or no MM contact desired, one writes it MFM.
