Google backs off…


A couple days ago I wrote a post about Google changing it’s content guidelines for their Blogger site, Explicit Posts.  I copied the email they sent me about their new restrictions on explicit content.  Well, apparently I wasn’t the only person that had an opinion on the topic.

Today, I received a second email from Blogger rescinding the guideline change.

This week, you received an email telling you about some changes we were making to the Blogger Content Policy. In that email, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.

We’ve received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs and the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.

We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies.

What this means for your blog:
Commercial porn will continue to be prohibited.
If you have pornographic or sexually explicit content on your blog, you must turn on the adult content setting so a warning will show.

Explicit posts


It seems an appropriate time to write this post as I’ve just received an email from Blogger about their new content guidelines.  (I post on both sites, Blogger and WordPress.  As far as I know, WP policies aren’t changing.)

Blogger:

In the coming weeks, we’ll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We’ll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the blog will be able to see the content we’ve made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won’t experience any interruptions in service. Continue reading

The big American in Australia


**This is the only repost from Blogger I’m doing because it’s just too damn funny and sets up the next post.  Originally posted on Blogger shortly after it happened, 12/27/14.**

Vivian and I were having a lazy evening, watching movies and eating Thai in bed.  After, Vivian got up and went to take the dishes upstairs.  (There will be plenty about Vivian, back story and all, in other posts.  This story was just too funny to wait.)

A minute later she came back in, plates still  in hand, eyes big, and asked me if I was good with spiders.

She had told me previously about her major issues with spiders.  It’s on the level of “will kick you out of her house” for joking that there’s a spider near her.   Seriously.  Anything spider related is totally off limits.  Okay, no problem for me.

When Vivian came back into the bedroom and mentioned a spider, my big ego, American, white knight streak emerged with a hard on.  Of course, I’ll vanquish the arachnid and save the day!

I got out of bed in my boxers, chest puffed out, flexing my arms.  “Alright, where is he?” Continue reading

Visiting Ann: the kind-of threesome


**I recently returned from spending ten fantastic days with Ann St Vincent.  These posts about the visit aren’t going to be in any specific order, there is too much to write on too many topics.  So, don’t look at these like one long story, they are more like post cards or snap shots from a fantastic trip.**

Warning: this is a very unsexy post.  Very unsexy.  In fact, it’s probably the least sexy post every written about a “threesome”.  It’s probably also the most awkward post I’ll ever write.  I’m sorely tempted to simply skip it and let Ann say her piece, but with the high value I place on open, painful, base honesty it seems disingenuous to commit that sin of omission.  So, here we go.

Ann and I have had some pretty frank conversations about sex and fantasies.  I’m a pretty vanilla guy when it comes to what I like.  I’m easy to please, if Ann plays with my penis I’m a happy guy.  However, I might not be driven toward any fetishes but I’m pretty damn open to trying them out.  How will you ever know what you like until you try it?

Naked Thursday #16


For all of you noobs, you can read the explanation and previous posts on the Naked Thursday page.

There are some things that work out well on Naked Thursday, other things not so much.

naked shopping s

Now, it’s probably pretty obvious that going to the mall is not a good idea on Naked Thursday.  There would be a few benefits to going, you’d never have to get undressed first in the changing room.  Hell, you wouldn’t even need a changing room, the employees would be urging you to try things on as soon as you step in the door.  And yet, it’s not a good idea.

There are a whole host of reasons why it wouldn’t go well.  There are all the Moms browsing the aisles, kids in tow.  There are all the squeamish shop workers that don’t want your… parts touching the items for sale, and I can’t imagine a nude blogger would attract customers to the store -quite the opposite I’m sure.  Then, there are all those over-eager, poorly trained mall cops just itching for an excuse to bust out their stun guns.

But, by far, the biggest reason why it’s a terrible idea to go to the mall on Naked Thursday is where the hell would you keep your wallet?

Naked Thursday #15


For all of you noobs, you can read the explanation and previous posts on the Naked Thursday page.

There are some things that not real good to do on Naked Thursdays, other things work out pretty well.

Naked video camera s

One of the things that works out well is buying that fancy new video camera you’ve been drooling over.

You want to do some home videos?  Naked home videos.  You want to make a sex tape?  Naked sex tape.   Want to catch your kid’s soccer game on video?  …Ok, you might not want to do this one on Thursday.  Parents tend to have pretty conservative views of naked people around their kids.

Even better than one camera, you could buy and set up dozens.

You could rig up your house like it is going to be the next Big Brother house.  Capture your entire life on video tape, ever wrinkle and fart.  After a few Naked Thursdays, you could probably sell all that video to one of the cable channels.  It seems like that’s the new twist on reality TV, naked reality TV.  You could be the next big star!  Like the Kardashians!

Actually, can you think of any celebrity-reality-TV-stars that aren’t assholes?  Maybe you should keep the tapes to yourself.

Naked Thursday #14


For all of you noobs, you can read the explanation and previous posts on the Naked Thursday page.  (Thank you to Pornclerk Chronicles for this week’s topic)

There are some things that are wonderful on Naked Thursdays, other things not so much.

naked bacon s

 

One of the things you might want to avoid on Naked Thursday is cooking bacon.

I know, I know, bacon is the fifth food group, it’s the best fucking food on the planet, etc.  I know all that… but if you absolutely have to make those candied bacon strips, or bacon-wrapped deep fried hot dogs, or chicken-fried bacon, or bacon ice cream… you get the idea, bacon is fucking fantastic with everything… you might want to cook it up on Wednesday.

Damn, writing this is making me hungry for bacon.  Hmmm… bacon. Continue reading

Naked Thursday #13


For all of you noobs, you can read the explanation and previous posts on the Naked Thursday page.

There are some things that are not so good to do on Naked Thursday but other things actually work out pretty well.

Naked crime s

On Naked Thursday, one of the things you might consider is starting your life of crime.

For the sake of your humorously short criminal future I won’t consider a bandana covering your face cheating the Naked Thursday rules.  You wouldn’t want to make it any easier to identify yourself than it already will be.  Eh, tiny? Continue reading

Naked Thursday #12


For all of you noobs, you can read the explanation and previous posts on the Naked Thursday page.

There are some things that are good to do on Naked Thursdays, other things are not so good.

Naked alligator wrestling

One of the things that isn’t so good to do on Naked Thursdays is taking Alligator Wrestling lessons.

Maybe you always dreamed of dry lizard skin sliding between your legs, or running your scrotum over the bumpy ridges but it’s probably not a good idea.  Hmmm… dry, bumpy lizard skin rubbing against my balls…

Wait, yeah, no.  Bad idea.  Especially since alligators are usually fed by dangling chunks of chicken in their cage…  Yeah, the dangling pieces of meat hanging in front of their tooth-filled maws…  Meat that’s just waiting to be chomped into…   Depending on your ball-size you’d either be a tempting appetizer or a walking buffet.

There are some things that are good to do on Naked Thursdays, other things not so much.

Naked car maintenance s

One of the things that isn’t so great to do on Naked Thursdays is car maintenance.

Yeah, it’s all good to want to get up close and personal with your vehicle, a man and a machine is a beautiful combination, but it might be a little too close on Naked Thursdays. Continue reading
