It’s insufferably hot here in NYC – because of global warming I suppose – but no major hurricanes have hit us – yet.

Congratulations to Eric Olsen, the editors, and the Blogcritics writers.

Meanwhile, in Fort Greene, a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Brooklyn, the recent opening of a “sex shop” on a busy commercial street left fans of www.fuckvideos.xxx rejoicing but also prompted this objection from an area resident: “To have what most people would associate with pornography right out there along with the basic services, it alarms them.” [Source: The Brooklyn Papers, July 23, 2005] That may be the worst objection to pornography I’ve ever heard. Porn may be all sorts of bad things, but for much of America, it’s nothing if not a “basic service,” find out here now the kind of porn Americans watch daily. There are millions of people across the world sitting at their computers accessing porn on websites such as Nu Bay but it is done so behind closed doors, it’s still a taboo subject even though it’s such a common past time.
There are also some adult porn websites that sound like they have child pornography images and videos on them because of what they are called, sites like www.youngsexer.com, but these sites are 100% legal and only contain images and videos of adults.
