    Washington, D.C., residents watch more porn than the rest of America: study • Research from PornHub.com says residents of the nation’s capital watch 14.18 online videos per person in a year. Hawaii is second, with 7.57 per year. Politics has always been dirty, but a new study takes the expression to a level so stimulating that it’s hard to believe. Residents of Washington, D.C., watch nearly twice as much online pornography as people in any of the 50 states, according to a study published by XXX site PornHub.com. Horndogs in the nation’s capital consumed online pornography at a rate of...

    Saddam lookalike attacked by gang who tried to kidnap him and force him to impersonate the dictator in porn film An Egyptian Saddam Hussein lookalike claims an Iraqi gang tried to kidnap him and force him to make a pornographic film impersonating the late dictator. Mohamed Bishr, who comes from Alexandria, said the group hoped to sell their video as exclusive erotic footage of the former leader. He claims the gang beat him severely when he refused to go along with the plan, despite being offered $333,000 (£205,000). The devout Muslim says the gang made threatening phone calls saying they...

    April 27, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When it comes to startling statistics, the hidden world of pornography consumption has them in spades. For example, every second, $3,075.64 is being spent on porn, while 28,258 Internet users are viewing it. As of 2006 Big Porn was more lucrative than Google, Apple, Amazon, Ebay, Yahoo!, and Netflix combined. But perhaps the most startling of all is the age demographic: the largest group of Internet pornography consumers is between 17 and 12 years old. Therapists now say we’re only beginning to scratch the surface of the havoc wreaked on this “Generation XXX” as it...

    UC Berkeley, in an apparent attempt to stave off any association with, well, sexy co-eds doing naughty things on camera has bought a handful of .xxx domain names that could link to the school. In other words, domains like goldenbears.xxx, uc-berkeley.xxx and calbears.xxx won’t offer any titillating bits, just a dark screen that says “this domain has been reserved from registration.” “We wouldn’t want to be associated with the kind of industries that would use that domain name,” . . .

    Pornography now has its own online domain. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has approved a plan to give big Porn Sites their own domain. The vote in San Francisco this month was to allow porn sites to have the .xxx domain. But Porn businesses can still use .com and other domains too. Pro-family leaders decried the action. "The addition of this new domain will just make the Internet even more of a moral minefield," said Dwayne Hastings, vice president at the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.

    CREAL SPRINGS-Residents in one Williamson County town are receiving enormous phone bills, that have been inflated with thousands of dollars worth of calls to sex lines. Police say someone is tapping into to the phone lines and homes and churches. So church leaders at the First Baptist, United Methodist and the Assembly of God Church in Creal Springs have noticed big phone bills. The calls are to numbers they know they didn't make. "Those charges are to 900 numbers which are sex numbers," said Creal Springs police chief Phil Jeralds. He believes someone is breaking into the junction box outside...

    A three-day erotica convention may have found a new home, but it's not being welcomed with open arms. In fact, Edison Mayor Jun Choi sounded remarkably like his counterpart in Secaucus, Mayor Dennis Elwell, in expressing his displeasure. “We strongly object to this type of gathering in Edison.There is no place for it here,” Choi said this afternoon. However, he said, “we’re not in the same legal position as Secaucus. We don’t have the legal standing to stop it.” Elwell got his wish today when organizers of the "sex-po" pulled out of Secaucus and moved the event nearly 30 miles...

    A longstanding proposal to create a specialized .xxx suffix for sex-related entertainment Web sites received a final rejection yesterday by the agency governing the Internet address system. The plan, first introduced seven years ago by ICM Registry, was rejected by a vote of 9 to 5 by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann, at a meeting in Lisbon. The issue will not be brought for further discussion by Icann, but ICM Registry, the Florida company that was also applying to manage the address, said it would continue to pursue the issue. “We are extremely disappointed by...

    A Christian missionary group making the rounds at US adult entertainment conventions hands out Bibles with "Jesus loves porn stars" stamped on their covers. Jesus loves porn stars just as much as he does pastors and soccer moms, XXXchurch contends. The outreach team from XXXchurch, calling itself a "porn ministry," distributes paperback New Testaments with a gaudy purple-and-yellow cover reading: "Jesus loves porn stars." Its website, billed as the number-one Christian porn site, includes downloadable Bible studies and an array of "prayer software," including "accountability programs" designed to help users resist pornographic temptation. The Bible's text, in everyday conversational English,...

    Newly released e-mails allege U.S. government officials pressured a leading Internet authority into voting against creating a kind of red-light district for adult Web sites. The apparent involvement of the U.S. Department of Commerce, President Bush's chief political operative Karl Rove and others is significant. If true, it means the U.S. government violated terms of a complicated arrangement it has with ICANN, the Internet authority that voted 9-5 two weeks ago not to OK the .xxx proposal. What ICM Registry, the company that proposed the top-level domain, wanted was permission to distribute Web addresses that ended in .xxx to be...

Amid vociferous opposition, ICANN, the international body that is responsible for internet domain names, has been considering a proposal by US company ICM Registry for the new code. But governments have been fighting a rearguard action to have the plan canned, with the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission writing to ICANN opposing the proposal.

At its annual meeting this past weekend in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers took up several topics related to the global administration of the Internet, which has become a heated topic because the U.S. has insisted on maintaining oversight. The new ".asia." domain would supplement suffixes available for individual countries, such as ".cn" for China and...

    The proposed .xxx porn domain has been kicked into the long grass just days before it was due to meet final approval. ICANN chairman Vint Cerf stunned an open meeting of the governmental advistory committee (GAC) in Vancouver late on Tuesday when he announced that the whole issue had been pulled from the Board meeting agenda - where it had been the first topic of discussion. The reason given (this time) was that the GAC needed time to review a 350-page ICANN report on the domain's feasibility before it could provide its approval (or disapproval). That's a red herring though....

His QuickVerse software brought the Scriptures to Christian computer users’ fingertips. Parsons has more recently made an even bigger name for himself in secular circles by creating a racy TV ad that ran nationwide during the 2005 Superbowl.

As if “Hardcore porn.com,” “Rape Porn.com,” or “XXX porn.com,” leave them clueless.

    NEW YORK -- A red-light district tentatively cleared for construction on the Internet -- the ''.xxx'' domain -- is being billed by backers as giving the online porn industry an opportunity to clean up its act. A distinct online sector for the salacious will reduce the chances of Internet users accidentally stumbling onto porn sites, they argue. If only it were so simple. Zoning in cyberspace has always been a daunting proposition, and participation in the porn domain will be voluntary. Even if it's voluntary, supporters say, adult sites will have incentives to use ''.xxx.'' ''If the carrot's big enough,...
