When the burger joint Hot Buns opened in Copenhagen in March, the tank-top and hot pants attire of its female wait staff inevitable wound up local feminists. But having survived the initial wave of protests unscathed, the restaurant has upped the
ante. Big time. Hot Buns will now open Denmark's first combination burger bar and sex shop.
Burgers can be purchased right next to dildos, fries can be enjoyed while checking out the selection of whips, chains and cock rings.
The new naughty combo will be known as Hot Buns After Dark and as the name suggests it will only be open in the wee hours.
Hot Buns owner Mathias Kaer told The Local that the new concept is meant to take advantage of the restaurant's prime location on Gothersgade, one of Copenhagen's biggest party streets. That the new concept is meeting resistance isn't surprising to
Kaer who noted:
When we opened in March, we had a lot of press, and a lot of politicians and feminists who were against this concept. But we aren't doing this just for the attention, we are doing it because we believe in it as a business concept.
Boodigo bills itself as an adult-oriented search engine. On the surface, it looks like a regular search engine, aside from the pop-up message that warns you must be at least 18 years old to access it.
Boodigo lets you do a regular web search or target it exclusively to Tumblr sites -- as that photo blog platform is often used for pornographic content. All the results from any search should be links to porn. And these searches won't be cached in the
history or tracked so you can be more discrete about your fetishes. Boodigo explains:
interested in building a 'profile' on our users; our core mission is simply to help you find what you're looking for in a way that's as efficient, effective and enjoyable as possible. In other words, using Boodigo means finding what you're looking for
without having to worry about what someone else might be finding out about you.
But, at least so far, Boodigo doesn't even really seem to measure up to Google. Daily Dot gives some comparisons in its article gave examples of searches in both Google and Boodigo and the results were mixed. Boodigo provides links to individual
performer websites and pay porn sites and so touts itself as being more ethical than porn search engines, such as Search.xxx and PornMD, which provides links to pirated content.
Next month Marc Dorcel (both the man and the French adult entertainment company) will celebrate 35 years of high quality porn production.
In 1979, after having titillated France with full-color erotic still photography, Marc Dorcel got an opportunity to translate his glossy photography into video. The company Marc Dorcel was born with the release of his first adult movie , Sweet Little
Many other productions followed, some with an assist from Michel Barny and Michel Ricaud, to help Dorcel grow to its current size: a catalog of 800-plus movies distributed worldwide.
The current managing director is Marc's son Gregory who said in a statement:
In 35 years, Dorcel has seen customs and technologies evolve. And since the explosion of the internet, porn is not only confined to sex shops and specialized theaters. Pornography has now invaded the private sphere and has become a mass phenomenon,
widespread in all backgrounds. More than 20 years after the first adult movie broadcast on TV, it is not shameful anymore to like porn and to admit it. Moreover, adult contents were for a long time reserved to a male audience, whereas now they tend to
target a more feminine audience that wishes for even higher quality programs, until becoming an integral part of the couple's sexuality.
Dorcel's tradition of award-winning titles continued unabated at the most recent AVN Awards Show last January, with wins for The Ingenuous in three categories (Best Foreign Feature, Best Director -- Foreign Feature, and Best Sex Scene in a Foreign
Shot Production) as well as Best Foreign Non-Feature for Claire Castel: The Chambermaid .
Canadian porn star Zoe Zebra, who has been criticized by the local mayor for her decision to have sex with 25 men in one night in order make enough money to have plastic surgery, is going ahead with the planned shoot anyway, reports local media.
Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, who called the event a shameful display, has been trying to keep it from happening.
The 'Boule-O-thon,' as it's been called, is planned for Friday evening at Bar 77, a licensed strip club on Rue Main in Gatineau. Owner Larry Lepine said that despite opposition from the city and police, the sex marathon is 'absolutely' still a go.
The city has tried used zoning laws to try to prevent the event from taking place at all--citing bylaws that state that businesses that 'exploit the nude body' -- including strip clubs and porn film shoots, must be in a commercial 'C-06-102' zone.
But lawyers for the club suggested that it could be moved from its original location in an RV in the parking lot to a private apartment above the bar.
The Boule-O-thon is being organized by Zebra's company, AD4X , which will also produce and distribute a video of the event.
A Japanese oppai pub is a hostess club in which women's breasts take top billing. And now to take it one step further, an icha-kyaba establishment has all the trappings of a hostess club , in that seated women pour drinks while engaging in
pleasant conversation, and the shoulder-to-shoulder closeness of an oppai pub, but with one crucial difference: Touching is allowed.
A writer for Weekly Playboy , which covers such topics, explains:
The term 'icha-kyaba' came into vogue about a year ago. Right now, Tokyo has about 50 such clubs. Over the past six months, the genre has exploded.
Since there is a bit of variation from club to club, there is no strict definition as of yet about what comprises an icha-kyaba. But, in general, there are some services that are common, such as the hostess slinging her legs over the knee of the
customer, who can also fondle the upper half of her clothed torso.
Though rare, kissing is possible, as is the chance to touch the bare breasts of the hostess.
While kyabakura joints may have lower cover charges than hostess clubs, customers wind up paying a lot via the drinks they buy for girls.
A court in Malta has acquitted 3 table dancing clubs where topless dancing somehow led to charges of running a brothel. The court ruled that a topless
dance cannot be deemed immoral in today's society.
Owner Paul Attard, Andra Iaona Togoi and Gary Camilleri, the operators of Club Paradiso in Sliema, were found not guilty of running a brothel and of using their premises for prostitution.
Inspector Melvyn Camilleri told the court that during a routine check on 9 February 2013, he found a woman dancing topless during a private dance. The dancer told the police that her male client had removed her bra and hat since he had not acted
aggressively , she continued dancing.
In her decree, Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit noted that there was no definition as to what constitutes an immoral act, claiming that what was once immoral is acceptable in today's society:
Whereas the term prostitution can easily be defined, the term immoral acts cannot. What was immoral a few years ago may be considered perfectly acceptable by modern society.
Can a dancer dancing topless in a private room in front of one customer be interpreted to constitute an immoral act? The courts find more obscene and immoral material in more of the television programmes and films readily available and viewable,
even to younger generations, that portray the female body in a more obscene way than the case under examination.
The fact that a dancer was caught topless in a private room dancing for a customer is not, in the court's opinion, immoral.
The court said that the prosecution failed to prove that the club was used either solely or partly for the purposes of prostitution and consequently acquitted the accused of all charges.
