CALL TO ACTION!
For five years, an agency of the City of Phoenix has been raiding and harassing swingers’ clubs under a local ordinance that makes it a crime to “operate a live sex act business.” Recently, a gay men’s bathhouse was also raided under that ordinance. These actions fly directly in the face of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, in Lawrence v. Texas, that governments cannot take action against private sexual expression solely to impose moral views on its citizens. This ordinance has no legitimate justification. Moreover, its enforcement has discriminatively targeted sexual minorities—swingers, Gay, Lesbian, BDSM, and Transgender clubs—while ignoring businesses (like adult motels) that obviously fall within the terms of this ordinance

Head shop
We were in my friend's furnished basement. It was a potluck affair so there was a ton of food. If it weren't for the bin of rubber dildos on the coffee table, you'd swear it was a bridal shower.

Facial Analysis
We have seen the zeitgeist, and we need a Handi-Wipe. From the proliferation of bukkake websites to those priapic Svedka ads (it's vodka! it's ejaculate! it's vodka and ejaculate!) to Jenna Jameson looming over Times Square, pop culture is — if not exactly come-covered — perpetually almostthere. Ashkan Sahihi, a 40-year-old New York photographer, wittily twists this commercial ubiquity in his latest series. Male and female models are seated in front of a Sears portrait backdrop. Their expressions are ordinary; their faces are covered with what is apparently semen. Shock valuism, for sure, but what's interesting about these images is their banality: it's the faces, not the fluid, that you remember. Sahihi, who is married with two young children, spoke with Nerve about the mechanics of the shoot and his post-orgasmic guilt....
