Porny Woman’s Thursday: Moresomes

Would you look at that: Thursday again! This week, for no particular reason and certainly not relating to of any recent Saturday nights in my life, please enjoy a themed NSFW set involving shots of hanky-panky involving three or more people.

If you would prefer instead to stick with less-somes, feel free to blacklist “porny womans thursday” (no apostrophe) for the entire meme, or “pwt moresomes” for just this week’s amorous crowds. As usual, “nsfw” and “bdsm” tags have also been applied where appropriate.

The small print: PWT is intended as a celebration of female-driven sexuality. That said, the use of the word “woman” reflects primarily on the identity and sexual preferences of the blog’s owner, rather than the subjects depicted.

  • Work six hours at the office
  • Buy Streetcar Named Desire tickets for Saturday
  • Pet store: new leash for Mr Bingley
  • Mr Bingley’s afternoon walk
  • Make lunch

oh yeah progress progress

Well, 13.4 turned out to be more work than I’d anticipated, but I feel actually quite good about my progress! I think I’m going to leave the second half of 13.6 to tomorrow, and switch to some Ford Madox Ford or knitting. Forward march!

Anonymous asked: Thoughts on the Columbian Women's Cycling Team uniform kerfuffle? Not sure which is more problematic, the uniforms themselves or the media commentary on it. Some of the remarks about how scandalous the uniforms are could be read as viewing the female body as pornographic in and of itself. But I don't think the men's team uniforms were designed like this so that's an issue. Ties to your aforementioned comments regarding sexualizing female athletes.

I had to google what you were even talking about, Anon, so I suspect I’m not really the most useful commentator, especially as regards media coverage. That said, here is a comparison shot (x) of the men’s versus women’s uniforms, both designed by the same person. To my eye they both suffer from a similar (and aesthetically bizarre) tendency to point up the groin, which strikes me as more deliberately provocative than precisely sexualizing (or maybe it’s just that I personally find both kits absurdly unattractive):

I have a very hard time believing that either of these uniforms were designed without the conscious desire to curry attention. Which, I mean—presuming the athletes were consenting (a complicated presumption), that’s a valid media strategy, I suppose. It certainly seems to be working!

That said, if the attention they have garnered has been near-exclusively focused on the women, rather than split between the teams or focused on the designer(s) themselves, then my vote for “which is worse: outfit design or media coverage?” would be firmly in the camp of the media. 

But I’d like to reiterate that this ask was the first time I heard anything about this issue, and there are almost certainly important aspects of the situation of which I remain ignorant.

Weekend Write-or-Die: 2014 Round IX

antidiogenes:

The Antidiogenes Club is running this weekend!

Here are the (copy-pasted) rules:

  1. Write as much as you can over the weekend.

That’s basically it. If you’re new around these here parts, you probably want to read these notes on what counts and a further explanation of how it gets counted.

As usual, the weekend is scheduled to begin on Friday, September 19 at 6pm Pacific (see what time that is in your timezone, or check out the countdown) and end Sunday, September 21, at 6pm Pacific. Any words written at any point during these 48 hours can be counted toward your weekend total, and you can submit that total at any point using this handy form

If you want to play along, here is what you can expect:

  1. The chat! We have two main rooms—#antidiogenes for general chat, and #antidiogenes-warroom for quiet writing and word wars; most people have been staying logged into both and swapping tabs as needed for their own personal purposes. Both rooms are invite-only, so we, again, are strongly encouraging people to register their nicks and request self-invite privileges before the official writing weekend formally begins. (More info here.)

    Our landing lobby is #crosskeys. If you need troubleshooting help, please send in an ask or log on to #crosskeys and prod a mod. If all you need is a single-time invite, you can request one in #crosskeys by saying the name of a mod who is currently logged in, to get their attention.

    The main Antidiogenes chat room (#antidiogenes) is no longer a Sherlock spoiler-free zone. However, we are a writing/creating group, not a more general discussion group, so mods reserve the right to nudge people gently back onto writerly/creatorish topics if chat goes too far down the garden path.

    For the benefit of people who still have not seen Sherlock S3 and are blacklisting, mods will be using the tag “sherlock spoilers” on announcement posts, if it happens to be appropriate; and #antidiogenes-warroom and #crosskeys are not really discussion spaces at all and should be spoiler-free in perpetuity.

  2. We will be running word wars (20 or 30 minute intense writing blasts!!) over in #antidiogenes-warroom every now and again. While there’s no official schedule for these, they usually run once an hour whenever there are enough people in the room who want one. During main American-continent-timezone nighttime hours, they tend to slow, but anyone is of course welcome to grab a timer and run one if your mods are asleep, and these are always a quick way to get super productive, super fast.

  3. We’re also queuing up hourly reminder posts on antidiogenes on Tumblr, to ask how it’s going. Feel free to reblog or reply to let us know, and to commiserate with your fellow sufferers.

In our August round, we collectively wrote 55,932 words in our forty-eight hours of writing, after which we could clap our hands together and call NaNoWriMo done and dustedHurrah for us!

Any and all wordcounts are of course welcome, and if you participate at all, you will win both bragging rights and the official right to post a hideous sparkly word count graphic like this one (from the last round):

…all over your blog/apartment/pets/children/et cetera. \o/

This weekend, wrangling you all along with me will be Lacuna, Otter, CR2, Persiflager, and Penny, with the possibility of a few other familiar faces popping in here and there to prod you along. \o/

I look forward to seeing you there!
