You’ve seen the angels on the runway. You’ve bought into the idea that they’re otherworldly creatures, condemned to live among mortals and impose impossible standards upon you in revenge. Prepare to get the upper hand as Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge and Lais Ribeiro dish on kissing.

Sure, we care about your feedback, but we were never the sort of blog to give a hoot about “the numbers.” We’ve seen what gets numbers: animated gifs with cats. We’ve no interest in cats, and given the number of people who follow us on social media to keep up with what we’re posting, neither do you. We do, however, nevertheless have a dusty Google Analytics account, which we must confess became the source of great amusement over the weekend.

We’ve gotten word that AfterDark LA, the LA Weekly’s sex blog, is pivoting from its L.A. focus to a national one in order to appeal to a wider audience. This no doubt includes taking a step back from adult industry happenings to an extent, which is a damn shame since most other mainstream media properties online have a tendency to be unabashedly sex-negative. But don’t be sad, we have you covered. To satisfy all your civilian cravings about what’s happening in Porn Valley, we present Porn Valley Vantage, a great blog run by eminent pornologist Dr. Chauntelle, a visiting scholar at USC’s department of sociology and academic whose primary interest is in the expansion of women’s rights and opportunities in the adult film industry.

The overall desire to help on the part of Google has overridden a lot of details that must be understood if we are going to find a way to rid the world of trafficking and slavery. The most harmful and least understood of these details is the importance of supporting organizations that distinguish between consensual sex work and sexual slavery. Several of the organizations that Google is funding do not make this necessary distinction.
