Obligatory Celebrity Nude Photo Comments. Or, Peanut Gallery 2.0
This post regarding leaked nude celebrity photos is a little late. At least in “media time”. This is mostly due to the truism that I give less than 2 tiny shits about celebrity scandal most days. I mean, I love to flip through an US weekly while getting an oil change (not a euphemism, they just always seem to be laying around the autolube shops) and check out pretty dresses and gorgeous styling, it requires no real thought effort and it is a nice brain break. However, I retain little and care about next to none of it. So I admittedly missed the internet judgement and outrage window but cut me a break, I had Doctor Who to watch.
I became interested recently when I came across Jennifer Lawrence Vanity Fair response to her privacy invasion. Firstly, she is a great actress and seems like one cool lady so, hats off to her on that. Secondly I felt sad she even needed to consider apologizing. Good for her for not! For Corn’s Sake! Why should she apologize? Why should anyone apologize for any erotic act between consenting adults? The fact that the pictures were stolen and shared with others changes this not one bit.
I am sure many other sensible people have pointed out the embarrassing victim blaming that went viral, and the self inflated equalizing in those fucking moronic “celebrities ask for it because they are celebrities” comments. I am certain those much more eloquent than I have already called BULLSHIT and for that I thankful. Reasonable people very often do not draw the most attention so it is nice when they speak up, so I wont spend much time on these points.
Sexuality is a major interest for me so I want to discuss the sexuality angle. I feel like the victim blaming inherent in the “don’t take nude photos if you don’t want them seen” attitude crosses into straight up sex-shaming. It is a truly awful part of our culture that we engage in punishing consenting adult sexuality with scorn and ridicule. Shit, these women broke no laws! They weren’t even being particularly kinky dammit! They were being sexy with some other person and got taken advantage of by strangers. Not their fault.
Actress, porn star, social worker, barista, male, female, gay, bi, skinny, heavy, you have a right to feel great about your sexual self. Eroticism, taking a naked photo, posing for nude art, whipping someone with a rubber chicken, sodomy, french kissing, masturbating to 80s era WHAM videos etc. are not shameful acts. Just because you do any of those things does not mean it is okay for someone to make that public without your consent. Sexuality is not in itself shame-worthy. It is unnecessary and backward to think less of a person because they engage in different sex play than you do.
If you feel jealous of a celebrity, your issue. If you think taking and sharing nude photos is silly, gross, not smart, also your issue. Does not mean it justifies stealing. I really hope most people can agree, and I think they do, that stealing is way more shitty than sending nude photos to someone you wanna get frisky with. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for the time and now I think I’ll go take some nude photos and turn on some WHAM videos.

Conversation between some chatty 60-something ladies behind us in the movie theater after Dial M for Murder:
Lady 1: “I like that Ray Milland.”
Lady 2: “Who was the girl?”
Lady 1: “I don’t know, but she was pretty!”
Cristi and I exchanged a quizzical look. How can someone identify Ray Milland, but not Grace Kelly?
That would be like “I love that show with Desi Arnaz, but who was the redhead again?”
Anonymous asked: i find that i often confuse having to pee with being aroused. ill think im aroused but in reality i just need to go to the bathroom. also, i find the only way i can masturbate and actually feel good is by rubbing myself through my underwear. are both these things okay/normal? is there something i should be worried about?
There is a lot of confusion/correlation between those two sensations. It’s not at all unusual to have both of those sensations (feeling like you need to pee and like you’re aroused) at the same time, or even to switch the feelings. That’s because of basic anatomy.
Here is the outside of the vulva - see where the urethral opening is? That’s where you pee out of. It’s a very small opening that is right above the vaginal canal.
Next, we’ll see it from the side.
See that little purple spot labeled “Skene’s glands”? Those glands are right in the urethral sponge. If you insert a finger into the vagina up to the second knuckle (or about 2 inches), you’ll fee some thing soft and spongy on the top of the vaginal canal (the side closest to your belly button). The urethral sponge is tissue that surrounds the urethra. As well as doing other things, the sponge swells up during arousal, effectively sealing off the urethra and preventing you from peeing during sex. However, ever since potty training we have been taught to be super well attuned to our bodies to make sure that we don’t just pee our pants all the time. This means that we notice the sensations of fullness in and around our urethras, and this is one of those situations in which a swollen urethral sponge makes it feel like you need to pee.
This is also the location of the “g-spot”.
For some people, stimulating the g-spot can be very arousing and lead to orgasm, but for others it can just make them feel like they need to pee.
So to recap - in that one section we have the urethral sponge and the Skene’s glands, and together we can call it the g-spot. To make matters more confusing, the Skene’s glands can excrete fluid during arousal and orgasm - this is called squirting or “female” ejaculation. It is essentially a “female” prostate.
So know this: you cannot urinate while you are sexually aroused. If that isn’t enough to help you relax during sexual arousal, try the following:
- Make sure to pee before sexual interaction (either sex with others or masturbation)
- Try masturbating in the tub when no one else is home. Don’t bother filling it up, just know that you are not going to make a mess even if you do pee.
- Bear down (almost like you’re trying to pee) during stimulation, and see what happens. Experiment in the tub.
- If fluid does leave your urethra during arousal or orgasm, take the plunge and smell it. Does it smell like pee? Most likely it is not pee, and instead it is “female” ejaculate. It can be clear and does not spell like pee.
As far as only being able to rub yourself through your undies - that’s no problem at all! Many people have very sensitive clitorises, and going straight for the clitoris when masturbating can be painful and uncomfortable. If you wanted to try masturbating without your undies on, you could try getting yourself warmed up as you normally do, and then removing them and trying from there. However, there’s no reason to do so except if you want to.
LOVE the diagrams. Good, sexy, nerdy stuff!
