Tales Of Kink.Com

So I rage tweet, sometimes. I’ve been doing a lot of that over the recent scandal of Peter Acworth being arrested for drug possession charges.

But what’s interesting to me is how quickly people will act as though my tweets all pose a mortal threat to Cybernet Entertainment, also known as Kink.Com which is located at the San Francisco Armory. What a long strange relationship it’s been.

A long time ago before Mayhem was even thought of and I was a college freshmen chomping at the bit to indulge my long internet researched proclivities for getting creative with the integrated imagination of the sexual landscape, I went to a party at Kink.Com and didn’t even know it. I had purple hair and I was modeling someone’s leather creations with fairy wings, purple hair, and my trademark thick rimmed glasses. I was a teenager, I wasn’t yet 21. I was wide eyed and bushy tailed and as I wandered through the space I realized that it was…familiar. And my, there were drains everywhere…I realized in a flash that left me flushed that I was at The Porn Palace of Kink.Com. It wasn’t the armory then and although it was a profitable company is wasn’t the pledging to join a more mainstream entertainment sorority.

I never thought I could be a model, then. I had whiplash from the world I emerged from and the number one thought that ran through my head at all times “remain cool, calm, and collected.” I didn’t want to appear as anything but a natural addition to “Love’s Elysium.” I’m glad I welcomed the latex zebras who would kick and nip, the zipped up gimps, the strange men who crawled out from the shadows begging me to fuck their ass, the strange devices and contraptions like Fuck Saws, the grand theater of courtship rituals, the sense that I had crossed over to some other realm and I sat back with quiet humility that I didn’t know the rules of the sexual underworld and that I should watch often and I did for years.

Most people don’t walk into porn in their mid twenties and there’s a story I’ve been meaning to tell you all, one that I’ve been uncovering for myself as my relationship to porn evolves, about why I did. I look back now and say that I committed social suicide at age 24 when I walked into the Armory to exchange a short nude, bondage, orgasm, and masturbation video for a few hundred bucks and a lifetime of stigma. About a year ago, this author and co-writer&director of “About Cherry” (a film loosely based on and filmed at Kink.Com) emailed me to ask about the first time I did porn. I never answered him. It was more complicated and personal that he asked me.

Let me paint my mindset. Adventures in Africa6560_maggiemayhem002

Internet Archeology

Aw, those sanguine days of the early internet when neon and blinky was fashionable and the government had not fully appropriated the world wide web even after being one if its primary patrons.

I stumbled onto the fantastic website Internet Archaeology which collects web graphics from those early days of the internet and archives them so that we may better understand our roots. I am pleased to report that they collected adult images from the early web as cultural watermarks of their own. Warning: some images below the cut have flashing and scrolling images. All images link to the Internet Archaeology website. The full archive there contains graphics that create a fuller depiction of what porn advertising looked like in the 90s and some of the images use language that might be offensive to some viewers, particularly around gender.

For those looking for a blast in the face from the internet past, let’s take a ride down memory lane!

A Slave’s Journey: The Training Of O

Julie Night outside the armory

Julie Night leaves the ordinary world before entering The Armory As Underworld

The Hero’s Journey” is a pretty standard narrative structure. It is also known as the monomyth or the underlining, cross-cultural structure of how we tell certain stories. There’s a lot about Joseph Campbell that is grossly overblown but it is an incredibly helpful model for understanding stories and why we tell them. When it comes to mythology of this nature, we think of the grand epic poems like The Iliad and The Odyssey or The Wizard Of Oz or Star Wars. We don’t really think of porn as ever stepping into the territory of mythology despite the fact that sex is fucking epic and we inextricable to the human and personal saga.

There was a time when The Training Of O was a hardcore, XXX, BDSM manifestation of the hero’s journey. Given that it’s about BDSM and leather sex, we’ll call it the slave’s journey because in this instance it plays out to similar ends. A lot of great work has been done on the website and I am not alleging that this is a list of “the best” TTOO shoots. I have no idea what “the best” would be. I would say that out of what I’ve viewed, these would be the shoots that best exemplified the hero’s journey and took on an ethereal quality where it was evident you were watching something different than your average porn.

In contrast, I would say that content currently being produced on TTOO under a new director is something more a “Slut Soldier’s Bootcamp.” It’s infinitely less Jungian and much more military in nature. Thing of it is, even during Mogul’s tenure the creative winds changed direction and that alone indicates a kind of intellectual and artistic merit. If it were just 4 days of a chick being beaten and fucked, it would look and feel exactly the same ESPECIALLY under the same director. Even someone without film training can pick up on the changing flow of production. In the case of TTOO, members debate to varying degrees of civility the evolution of the website and its evolution over time and leadership.

Woman’s POV

I keep Feynman close to my heart and tits.

Have you checked out The Woman’s POV?

Madison Young and Maxine Holloway teamed up to create a website designed to titillate and arouse the body and mind with erotic play of the female gaze. They also have a set of ethics behind their smut:

Values

The Woman’s POV is dedicated to the authentic documentation of female pleasure and orgasms. We realize the power of orgasm and plan on changing the world one climax at a time.

We are devoted to showing diversity in female identity, the expression of feminine sexual desire, diversity of body types, as well as a wide spectrum of sexual and gender identities.

We are devoted to empowering women and creating safe space for exploration of sexual desires and fantasies by handing women in our community the camera. Its time to turn on the camera and get turned on.

We are dedicated to obliterating body shame and sexual negativity through realizing and documenting of our sexual desires and our sexual culture.

We are ready to reclaim the term pornography and recruiting YOU and YOUR LOVER/S and FRIENDS to pick up the camera and show us YOUR POINT OF VIEW.

Meet The Mayhems

Photo By Shilo McCabe

In March of this year, my partner Ned and I were doing our first formal shoot together as a couple for a project on rough sex and impact play. It was a delight to work on and as we laid back on a sweaty and come-covered bed we asked ourselves why we weren’t shooting our own content. We’re both switches so you never know whether one of us will be topping and bottoming. Suffice to say, we’re both enthusiastic perverts who love exploring our sexuality in the company of friends. We also have something to say about the way that people define their own relationships and the labels that just don’t match human experience.

March to August isn’t a lot of time and Ned may have set a new record for all of the hard work he put in behind the scenes. Although there may still be a few bugs here and there, we are pleased to announce the Meet The Mayhems is now operational! We’re loaded up with content that you can buy and download for $8 a month or buy the shoots you like the most individually. We’re always open to ideas and sexy suggestions so let us know what you would like to see!

As of now we’re running this entire project by ourselves without a crew. We’ve gotten some exciting press as we emerge from the gate from Fleshbot and Made of Words who both noticed the same thing: we are operating with no budget to speak of with big plans in our heads. The biggest thing that we want to show is that two people can be madly in love with one another as well as deeply in lust. We’re both pretty dirty and the site is hardcore, without a doubt. We want to show you how we fuck. Neither of us has a consistent bedroom role so who knows what kink we might explore next.

In the future we’ll be sharing physics lectures across our bodies, videos of the PSIgasm in use and explained, dirty passages from classic literature, lots of outdoor shenanigans, liquid nitrogen play, scandalous behavior at science conventions, and a lot more. We’re not just nerds, we’re hardcore fucking nerds.

I should also mention that the $8 monthly membership won’t last long unless you subscribe now. We’re going to let all of our founding subscribers keep their monthly rate if they sign up between now and the Folsom Street Fair. We know that we’ve got some wrinkles to iron out and we really appreciate the amazing input we’ve been getting from the people who stop by. We really need and appreciate what you have to say about what you want to see and how your experience is working. We want our initial subscribers to keep their rate for all that they are contributing.

Yours in love and lots of butt sex,

Ned and Maggie Mayhem

CrashPad With Tina Horn

Not too long ago I was super pleased to shoot for The CrashPad Series with none other than Tina Horn.

Before the shoot, Tina asked me to come in and be her sexy teacher’s assistant and demo bottom for a class on corporal play over at Good Vibes. She smacked me a little but it was just an appetizer and we both knew it. Getting to come in to the Crashpad was something long coming for both of us.

I knew that Tina had a thing for spanking and especially leather pants so I pulled out a pair that had been hiding in my closet waiting for some action. I was more than happy to offer her my rump to play with to her delight and to mine.

Another insider secret is that we’re both students of literature and big time dirty talkers. If you want to hear all kinds of smut roll out of our mouth from the obscene to the outright silly and sassy you can’t miss it. Ali at Made of Words wrote up a fantastic review of this scene so you don’t have to take my word for it.

There’s nothing better than working people you find sexy and admire a lot for their work. Tina Horn has been a big mover and shaker of the queer porn scene and I was so thrilled to work with her and bring our chemistry to the scene.

One of the best moments for all of you fans of squirting is the grand finale. Being as grateful as I was for the fantastic strap-on fucking I got, I was more than happy to give Tina some pleasure of her own. Squirting is a major, major turn-on for me and when she started to pop I couldn’t help myself! I flipped over and rubbed my ass all over the come she was spraying everywhere. There’s nothing sexier than a Horn-y slip and slide!

  The CrashPad set is amazing. It’s a tremendously talented crew who not only make some of the highest quality queer porn out there but also create a very supportive set. It’s the kind of place to feel welcome as a performer and a queer identified individual. I’ve been a fan for such a long time. CrashPad is the kind of gig that makes even the most jaded performer excited about. It’s a chance to express something more than a scene, it’s a chance to make the kind of porn that you aren’t always given the room to create. To say that the crew is supportive does not convey the undying enthusiasm they have for their performers and the hot smut we’re all working hard to make.

Check this scene out!

May is Masturbation Month

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

**All photos in slideshow by Shilo McCabe of The Sex Positive Photo Project.

“Don’t knock masturbation, it’s sex with someone you love.” -Woody Allen

Masturbation has been a fantastic part of my life for years and it becomes more important to me over time. When I first started touching myself I had enthusiasm and gusto but I also lacked the knowledge and skill it would take to really get myself over the edge to come. It touch time and it took practice, but now I am such an expert of my own body that I know just what to do for myself.

The Sex Positive Photo Project is currently running an exposition of masturbation images snapped by the talented Shilo McCabe. There is a new photo and story for every day of the month and you can find me celebrating “Cinco de Mayhem” on Day 5. There are already so many great entries to read and stories to explore. Get out there and have fun getting down with your own bad self.
