Stoya Loves Bad Ideas
I’m about to do something that is probably a terrible idea. I’m about to talk about STIs. I’m not a doctor. I am familiar with how things said on the internet are quoted out of context or read without full comprehension. I feel like these things need to be said anyway. The way that I see it, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Syphilis are kind of like Strep Throat for your genitals....
thenakedissueblog asked: Hi Stoya. I would like to interview you for the the blog THENAKEDISSUE. We're a blog that explores nudity and sexuality in art and entertainment.

I’m hosting this party for Fleshbot/Lux Alptraum in a couple of weeks. Speaking of Lux, she’s submitted a proposal for a panel at SXSW on Sex and Social Media. It’d be pretty cool if you went and voted for it, since that’s apparently how panels get approved. Here’s the link: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/1010

So much this.
Why My Apartment Smells Of Live Chicken
It started with early repeated exposure to Maurice Sendak’s Peacock from the Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Nutcracker. I had a video of it as a kid and actually wore a hole in the tape. Specifically, the part of the tape that had the Coffee/Arabian number: Note the floor length tail. I decided to use feathers, and it turns out they are a lot heavier en masse than I thought...
Sexual Semantics (Part 84)
Sweetheart?… Dear?… Sunshine? No… no… and no. The problem with these terms of endearment is that they’re all diminutive… cute… pet names. This is why they don’t stick to the man who was initially attractive because he said hello like he could fuck me through a wall. Don’t get me wrong - he has beautiful eyes and an attractive body. I find his antics and sense of humor highly...
At some point...
during my photoshoot with Ellen Stagg I put my feet over my head and started making faces. A video camera caught me: I’m excited for fall to happen so I can start wearing those socks again.
Our Bodies, Our Press Materials (Part 3)
So what would I change if I could? I did change a couple of things. My skin is sensitive and very pale, which means I used to get wicked razorburn. I tried every kind of shaving cream on the market. Straight razors, disposable bics, and high tech five blade gizmos meant for men’s faces. Hot water, cold water, and room temperature water. I also tried diaper rash ointment, aftershave,...
There’s a video involved. I leave it up to you whether you read or watch first. I’ve never understood vibrators. I’ve gone on record numerous times saying various versions of “I dislike them all except for Lelo’s Nea which I really only appreciate aesthetically.” I think it’s the buzzing that bothers me. I’ve posed for plenty of photospreads with...
Our Bodies, Our Press Materials (Part 2)
Like anyone (models, actors, tv personalities) who makes their living in front of cameras, my body is my product. Like anyone (athletes, dancers, construction workers) who does physical work, my body is my tool. When it comes to my-body-as-a-tool, I can do a decent job of evaluating myself. If I feel muscle strain in one part of my body way before other parts, that area needs to be strengthened....
