Fixated: Topic-specific Blogging
Creator: Lac Su
Moderator: Cynthia Brothers
Panelists: N’jaila Rhee (of BlasianBytch), Jot (of Live Laod), Jason Sperber (of Rice Daddies), Marvin (of Burnt Lumpia)
While some bloggers will cover Asian Americana from A to Z, others choose to concentrate on a particular niche, interest, or theme. From food to fatherhood, erotica to adoption, many Asian American bloggers are converging online around targeted topics. How does the blogosphere build community around a distinct yet shared passion or issue? Do bloggers feel compelled to highlight or de-emphasize their an “Asian American experience” How do bloggers stand out when writing about a popular subject, such as food or parenting? This panel will explore these questions, as well as how bloggers “ identities” ethnic and otherwise — may or may not intersect with and influence their perspectives on specific topics.
When I said on twitter I was sick, I may have downplayed how sick somewhat. I’ve been pretty ill lately. Just like any sickness you have good days and you have bad days. Sadly for me I had a lot more of the latter. Continue reading →
Exxxotica NJ out did itself again this year. Not only did it bring the stars, products and entertainment but they added an entire new car show into the mix.
Needless to say I had a blast I did tons of interviews took over 400 pictures. I will be posting my frist hand account full of hot chicks in lingerie and zany interviews on Thurs. I thought I’d talk about something a little more important frist.
Sadly not everything was fun and games at Exxxotica this year, Joanna Angel and Jessie Lee of Burning Angel were in a car crash. Joanna is all right but Jessie Lee is seriously injured.
If you haven’t noticed by now, on the side bar and on the menu bar there is a link to the Vibrant Vibes sex toy store. I really wanted to make it easier for my readers to find good quality personal love items that won’t break the bank.
The Dildo Fairy
Yes they have expensive ass Lelo toys (which I love) but they also have pretty awesome vibrating bullets for around 3 or 4 dollars. You just can’t beat that. Orgasms for the price of a value meal? I’m lovin’ it.
So as it turns out the Korea Times did a bit of lazy journalism and in turned painted one Anri Suzuki in a poor light. So BlasianBytch.com says “Sorry” for calling you a silly scally wag. Continue reading →
Yes, May is known for many things , including National Stroke Month it is also :
Asian American History Month
South Asian/ Indian Month
Military Forces Appreciation Month
For me May is one of my favorite months because it is set aside to help people get in touch with themselves. As someone that used to be very against masturbation , I know how hard it is especially for women to start to appreciate their bodies. Continue reading →
This is a response to Justin Long’s Op-Ed on Luke is Back.
Justin Long Takes a Stand
After reading Justin Long’s frank and open op-ed, I had many questions -Why didn’t this happen already? Will others follow? Will there be a backlash? One thing I never questioned was the frustration and anger behind his choice or my support of it.
The designation of substandard “otherness” has always been imposed on black bodies; the same script has titillated the American public since Birth of a Nation. Even as more racial and ethnic groups enter the gamut they are still weighed on the white vs. black scale. You see it everywhere, politics, entertainment and most openly the sex industry.
I would like to say that I’m 100% for everyone getting the opportunity to be depicted as sensual and whole beings. I support everyone fucking. Most of the erotica I write is categorized as interracial. My support of Justin Long’s choice is not about my own issues with race mixing. I will admit that I am not a porn actress; and actually don’t consume a great deal of heterosexual porn. I am, however, an exotic dancer as well as a journalist who writes and reads a great deal about sex, gender and media. I’m also a mixed race Black woman. Continue reading →
Just when you think you’ve seen every approach to market people having sex with each other, you come across something that really makes you think about the reason people choose to perform and produce porn in the first place.
When I went to Exxxotica New York last year I happened to meet a gentleman by the name of Lee. A New York based producer and star of pornographic film. While there were many men like him at the convention, he stuck out to many because in short, Lee is paralyzed and performs under the moniker Mr. Dick On Wheels Continue reading →
I was contacted earlier in the week by the very friendly people at I am Korean American . They are collecting profiles of the Korean American community to show the variety , beauty and complexity that is being of Korean decent in America.
For obvious reason I choose not to put my face along with my site and make a profile (my parents don’t know I dance) but I encourage my Korean American readers to make profiles and share your stories. There’s no way people can understand a peoples’ struggles and dreams without hearing what they have to say. Here is a great opportunity to tell the story ourselves, hollywood won’t. This is a great opportunity to showcase all the unique facets of the people.
So please click and make a profile
I AM KOREAN AMERICAN is a project of Barrel, a brand and web consulting company in New York.
When you purchase a copy of the 2010 APM Calendar, 100% of the profits go to the Asian Pacific Health Care Venture APHCV – “a community health center that provides low cost medicine to the working poor and uninsured in over ten languages!”
This center provides much needed sexual health and Family planing services to the Asian American community. In 1995 and 2001 Asian American women had a higher percentage of STI infections than their white counterparts, ( and much higher than Asian American Men) yet there’s hardly any federally or state funded resources that focus on Asian American sexual health. The APHCV has low cost or free STD screenings (including HIV). This is a worthy cause AND you get a year of sexy dudes. What more could you want?
