The year was 1929, and while it may have been a bad year for the economy, it was a red letter year for animation. That was the year that the first porn cartoon, Buried Treasure, was made. This short, animated feature  concerns the exploits of Eveready Harton, and his attempt to bury his "treasure" in every cozy orifice that he finds - be it that of man, woman, donkey, or cow. Of course, what else can you do when you're stuck as a castaway on "Pecker" island.

The movie was so controversial that US labs refused to process it; so, it was developed in Cuba instead. Rumor has it that it was made in the late 20s for a private party honoring the venerable animator Winston McCay. And according to Walt Disney animator Ward Kimball:

The first porno-cartoon was made in New York. It was called "Eveready Harton" and was made in the late 20's, silent, of course—by three studios. Each one did a section of it without telling the other studios what they were doing. Studio A finished the first part and gave the last drawing to Studio B [...] Involved were Max Fleischer, Paul Terry, and the Mutt and Jeff studio. They didn't see the finished product till the night of the big show. A couple of guys who were there tell me the laughter almost blew the top off the hotel where they were screening it...
Later, the work was attributed to the efforts of  George Stallings, George Canata, Rudy Zamora, Sr., and Walter Lantz. One thing I noticed while watching this film and The First American Porn Film: "A Free Ride" Circa 1915 was how male defined porn was from the outset. In this film, it is all about the dick with no clit in sight. At least, this movie takes a rather satirical view of the whole thing. And it is rather amusing to see the aptly named Eveready being led around by his fifth appendage. So, here is the first porn cartoon - what your great-great-grandparents used for wanking material.

Wow, the Lizard King has been dead 40 years this month. I have always the loved The Doors. And Jim Morrison was the major reason why. He was amazing, brilliant, beautiful, and gone way too soon. Life Magazine recently had a special celebration, and here is my favorite picture from their online gallery. He looks like sex on two legs here - all fierce and primal. RIP Lizard King.

Post Two in Sexual Dysfunction Series

Currently, there are two popular ways of thinking about female sexual dysfunction: the traditional DSM-IV perspective that sees it as a medical disorder and a New View approach (which I will be looking at in a later post) that takes into consideration psychosocial factors.

In my last post in this series, Female Sexual Dysfunction: A DSM-IV Perspective, I gave an overview of the disorder, according to the  DSM-IV. Now, I will talk about the the various kinds of disorders that are available for your displeasure.

Sadly, I think I have had sex like this :( Too bad, I didn't see this video first. I would have at least known how to get the guy to quit poking me in the cervix! Anyway, here is another hilarious video from The Onion.

How To Get A Guy To Notice You While You're Having Sex With Him

Well, if you are ever in a public restroom and need to let the air out of the old tire, cut the cheese, or engage in a little anal acoustics (i.e., fart), and you are sadly unable to due to well... um... embarrassment; here's how to Heimlich your own ass. Don't say I never post anything useful. I only wish I had known about this yesterday afternoon. Damn tacos. Via Copyranter.

 I received this excellent article from Filament magazine's editor Suraya Sidhu Singh. If you're not familiar with Filament, I suggest you check them out. Billing themselves as the "thinking woman's crumpet", they are a fabulous mixture of man candy and intelligent writing. What a yummy combination! I was quite impressed.

This article on low desire (clinical term, hypoactive desire disorder) was written by Cate Lawrence. I agree with much of what she says here, though, I don't think women's sexual position is all that "comfortable". Certainly not in the States, where women's reproductive rights are in dire jeopardy and sex education is nonexistent. Plus, I would argue that heterosexual sex continues to be rigidly defined by a limited set of activities that benefit men more than women. A recent study, conducted by Indiana University gave a glimmer of hope that our sexual definitions have expanded somewhat. So, I am hopeful.
