Erotic/Romance Clips and Links--veinglory

'App Store, Apple rejected the book [Knife Music] for containing "objectionable content," citing a clause in the iPhone SDK that states: "Applications must not contain any obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content or materials of any kind ... In its rejection letter, Apple singled out the passage in question, which we actually can't print either. Let's just say it involves a teenage girl telling a detective that she overheard her friend asking a gentleman caller to "love me like you mean it," just with a slightly more emphatic verb.' [CNET] Apple App Store, not erotic romance friendly?

'Girls, I know you've searched long and hard to find a site with naked straight men, but you can relax. This site features free pics of naked men, all chosen because they're NOT GAY. You won't get any ****-**** shots here. Just 100% straight men, getting nude for your pleasure. REAL erotica for women!' [Naked Straight Men, Not Work Safe] Insert raised-eyebrow smiley here.

'Nicole FáLon Garrett's successes always seem to come with a small twist, as if fate just needed to tweak her plan. The 39-year-old author and UI graduate recently donated 10 copies of her début urban-romance novel, Double Dippin', to the UI Libraries, including a personally autographed copy for President Sally Mason.' [The Daily Iowan] Call me cynical, but by the end of this first paragraph I knew the book was self-published.

Yeah, that's what they said in the Navy too. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

It's kind of ironic Apple would have issues with this book given that so many of the video games kids play are much worse! I wonder how they get by the policies?

Mary Winter said...

Not a fan of the U of I .... somehow the idea of someone donating their self-published work just makes me giggle...

Iowa City sure ain't the town it used to be...

So the guys are guaranteed straight, are they? And this makes precisely what difference to what they look like with their clothes off? None, so far as I can see, other than obviously you're not going to be supplied with the additional pleasure of seeing two or more of them entwined with each other.

Reminds me of a certain epublisher's submission guidelines about five years ago, before one or two other epublishers demonstrated that actually, two guys getting it on *was* a popular women's fantasy.

About time there's a naked-men watcher out there who has a discerning eye. I'm damned sick and tired of looking at undressed hot guys and wondering, Is he or isn't he...? Because, depending on a man's sexual orientation, there's a demonstrable difference in the quality of my appreciation.

?????????????????????????????????????????????

(Another one for the universal WTF list, which just keeps growing.)

Given that I'm never going to anywhere that I'd have the opportunity to do more than eye them, does it matter if they are gay, straight or into lemurs? Um, happy holidays.

The difference between Carnoy's book and other entertainment Apple allows is that the other entertainment comes from publishers/record companies/game companies with lots of attorneys and lots of other lucrative products, and Carnoy's book is self-published so Apple couldn't give two shits about alienating him.

And how about "NAKED STRAIGHT MEN WHO ARE SMART AND HILARIOUS, ARE FANTASTIC AT ORAL SEX, AND WHO LOVE TO COOK AND CLEAN?" Because if I'm fantasizing, I want to go whole hog.

JS, that's ME!

Walking away humbly now to polish the knob -door knob, that is!

I agree with a previous post unless you are going to meet the person in pictures it really doesn't much matter their preference.
