Stoya™
Hey! :) I wonder what your thoughts are on female ejaculation? I've been trying to learn how to (through G-spot/female prostrate stimulation) and it seems pretty obscure to me. Then again we're pretty much kept in the dark about the whole phenomenon. Thanks in advance if you take the time to reply, take care! x

If you or your partner(s) are super freaked out by the possibility of it being pee, you probably shouldn’t mess with it. The scientific jury is still out on the legitimacy and whys of female ejaculation, and as long as there’s stuff like cancer to work on you can’t really blame them for back burner-ing it.

Hi Stoya, I am a big fan, of your writing especially, but I thought it was a major bummer the other day when you tweeted "I'm starting to think that 'writing an erotic novel' is the new 'reality tv show.'" It seemed like you were throwing shade at other porn stars, particularly Sasha Grey. Is there a reason her writing an erotic novel is any less valid than you writing a column at Vice? I'm confused and disappointed. :(

Or I was commenting on how everyone is being pitched on erotic novels like everyone was being pitched on reality shows a couple of years ago. But hey, if you want to project qualitative judgement onto that statement that’s your right.

Our celebrity mascot Stoya, the worlds most awesome porn star ever, brings us her annual #fistingday submission. Thank you, stoya. <3

Because fisting is a completely legitimate and very enjoyable sexual practice, and because I <3 y’all too.

I read this and I liked it as I usually like what Stoya writes… and then I made the mistake of reading the comments. So now I would really like to repeatedly punch people.

Thank you :) Also: Never read the comments! (I know, I do it too sometimes)

Meet One Eyed Jack

He’s currently being taken care of by Animal Compassion Team which is a no-kill shelter in Fresno CA, and he needs a happy forever home. As much as I want to take him (and a raccoon and a couple of large dogs and maybe a polar bear) in, it wouldn’t be fair to Squeak, Pixel, and Widjet because three cats really is enough for this house. But he seriously pulls at my heart strings. Maybe he will pull at yours.

Nabil Hadjarab arrived at Gitmo 11 years ago, in an orange jumpsuit and a diaper, his head covered by a hood, eyes blinded by blackout goggles, mouth gagged, and with headphones blaring white noise into his ears.
At 34, Nabil is four years my senior. We both speak French, draw pictures, and, in our youths, liked to travel to desolate places and have adventures. But Nabil’s days of wanderlust may be over forever. Although he’s been cleared for release since 2007, the US will not return him to his family in France.  He has vowed to remain on a hunger strike till he finds freedom or death, whichever happens first.

Stoya on Ethics, Porn, and Workers’ Rights
I was talking to this reporter recently about pubic hair. My favorite interviews are the ones that feel like a conversation with a stranger at a coffee shop or a friend at a quiet neighborhood bar. Tangents get explored and they frequently veer off into territory that has nothing to do with the article being written. Sometimes those digressions circle back into a great quote about the initial topic that probably wouldn’t have been said if the format was Q&amp;A. One of the tangents I went on during this interview involved exploitation in the porn industry. 
My first contract with an adult production studio was skewed heavily in the company’s favor. You could say I got “screwed” on it. I’ve heard plenty of unverified mythology about musical artists and television actors who had terrible initial contracts. I’ve also heard a few stories directly from talent in the mainstream end of the entertainment industry. You might know some of these anecdotes: Prince’s name change to avoid a trademark ownership issue, the reasons behind Johnny Depp’s rumored antics on the 21 Jump Street set, Billy Joel and his 15-year Family Productions contract.

So…

I have a bunch of random news and stuff:

Vanity Fair did this profile of Simon Hammerstein, who is one of the owners of The Box.  I’m in the accompanying portrait (in my hoop!) along with a few of the other performers that work there. There are a bunch of people who aren’t shown, including the wonderful crew and some of the most talented, creative people I’ve ever had the honor of working with like Rose Wood and Julie Atlas Muz, but ohmygod you guys I’m in Vanity Fair. I’m really excited. Too excited to fully articulate how excited I am. Here is a picture Steve Prue took over someone’s shoulder on the train.

Meanwhile, I have a new piece up on VICE.com. I talk about butts. I’m sure you’re surprised.

The Hysterical Literature project now has a website which includes a Susannah Breslin essay about my session.

…and my friend Ian Strange just put up the video part of his newest art exhibition on vimeo and he’s really awesome so I encourage you to click this link and check it out.
