The Millennial Fantasy: Property Sex

According to Internet analytics company Alexa, PornHub is the 62nd most popular website in the world, outranking the New York Times, HBO and the Weather Channel. With nearly 100 categories available on the website, it seems there is something for everyone to get off. Last year a new fantasy was added to their list of content, and it puts ‘Open House’ in a brand new perspective.

Since the launch of the Property Sex channel in 2015, it’s currently ranked 10th most popular on Pornhub, with over 76.000 subscribers and 356 million views. According to PornHub, “Property Sex puts you behind the camera as you make dirty sex videos with the naughtiest of desperate tenants and with the most alluring real estate agents. Become a client and take a tour with some of the finest real estate agents who are willing to do just about anything for a sale. Or become the dirty landlord dealing with hot, young tenants who don’t want to face eviction.”

So basically the genre is the ultimate millennial dream: Being actually able to buy a house and do the real estate agent while you’re at it, but the real turn-on is the housing. The rise of Property Sex mirrors a dystopian landscape, in which a situation is presented that could potentially happen, but sadly never will.

Cocks Not Glocks

Sex toys can be revolutionary, too. This summer hundreds of Texas students demonstrated against the “campus carry” law, which went into effect starting 1 August 2016. The new law permits licensed gun owners aged 21+ to carry concealed handguns at UT Austin and other public universities. By means of protesting, students brought thousands of rubber dildos to the campus, turning sex toys into political weapons of agency.

The Cocks Not Glocks rally took place at the same location where Charles Whitman shot and killed 14 people at The University of Texas in Austin on 1 August 1966. Under the motto “Fighting absurdity with absurdity,” the protestors highlight the ridiculous nature of the new law, as this went into effect on the 50th anniversary of the massacre. Reportedly the protest has distributed over 5.000 dildos, donated by sex shops.

The Campus (Dildo) Carry movement started when in 2015 Governor Greg Abbott signed approval of SB11, or the “campus carry” law. Jessica Jin, a UT alumnus organized an “ironic” protest to mock the apparent absurdity of weapons being allowed on campus, but regulates the displaying of obscene items. In less than 36 hours, over 1.700 students pledged to attend the protest and #CocksnotGlocks went viral.

Campus carry has opened a seemingly deep political fault. Faculty members have resigned over the law, whereas a gun-rights group staged a fake mass shooting in Austin to demonstrate their belief that so-called “gun-free zones” are the initial problem that makes mass shootings so lethal. This makes us wonder if cocks can bring down governments?

Gay Escort Website Charged for Promoting Prostitution

In August 2015, the New York offices of infamous gay escort website Rentboy were raided as part of a major prostitution sting, whereby the chief executive and several employees were arrested. 13 months later –this week– CEO Jeffrey Hurant pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution in a federal case that incited accusations of anti-gay bias, and faces up to 21 months in prison. He will be sentenced on February 2.

Rentboy.com was founded in 1996 and was known as the largest online m4m escort website in the US. Among the website were escorts’ profiles listing various sexual services and fees; escorts advertised their interests from “vanilla” (clean-cut) to “leather” to fetish RPGs. The company was leading the industry for nearly two decades and was known for its transparency (what’s in a name), pool parties, and their annual awards show for escorts called the Hookies.

In earlier interviews, Hurant stated “there is no place on this website where somebody says I’ll have sex for money because that is against the law,” however he advocated, “to keep the oldest profession in the world up to date with all the latest technology.” Reportedly the raid was prompted by the launch of Rentboy’s Cash4Class scholarship last month. Gay activist Bill Dobbs responded with outrage to the arrest, “It’s wasteful prosecution,” he said. “It’s the war on sex. It feels like it’s something out of the 1950s.”

Prosecutors had alleged that Rentboy was the equivalent of an online brothel, and that the escorts were actually prostitutes. Part of their proof was the explicit ads, attribute listing and price options ranging from $150 an hour to $3.500 for a weekend. This leads us to questioning why Rentboy was targeted over other (straight) escort websites.
