'Porn Wikileaks' Reveals Adult Stars' Real Names, Home Addresses

The adult film industry is up in arms over 'Porn WikiLeaks' -- a new site offering the real names, birth dates and other private information belonging to more than 15,000 adult actors and actresses. As Gawker reported last week, Porn WikiLeaks obtained this information from a patient database at an STD testing clinic in California. In addition to the porn stars' real names, the leaked...

Hacker Goes to Prison for Broadcasting Porn on Moscow Billboard

Last year, a hacker named Igor Blinnikov infiltrated a video billboard, and used it to broadcast porn above a busy road in Moscow. Though the 40-year-old prankster eventually confessed to the crime, calling it a "bad joke," he wasn't able to avoid his legal comeuppance. Today, Blinnikov was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Blinnikov reportedly hijacked the billboard from the comfort of his...

ICANN Green-Lights .XXX Domain for Porn Sites

ICANN, the governing body that oversees top-level domain names, gave a thumbs up to the controversial .xxx suffix on Friday, finally bringing a heated and lengthy debate to a close.

ICM also agreed to devote money to initiatives...

Facebook or Porn? For Brits, Sharing and Poking Beats Staring and Pounding

Well, it's happened, Facebook has gone and destroyed all that is holy about the Internet. A study released this week by Experian Hitwise found that for the first time, traffic to social networking sites has edged out that to "entertainment" (bam chicka wah wah) sites. Before you pour one on the curb, it's worth noting the study only looked at U.K. users. And we all know that they have some issues...

'Sexting' Teens Avoid Child Porn Charges Under N.J. Bill

The New Jersey Assembly passed a bill yesterday that essentially decriminalizes teen 'sexting,' by allowing the courts to send teens to a diversionary program, rather than strapping them with a criminal record. As sexting among teens grows increasingly popular -- the bill's sponsor, Assemblywoman Pam Lampitt, notes that 20-percent of teens surveyed have sent explicit images -- the legislation...

FyreTV: A Streaming Pornucopia, For a Lonely Valentine's Night In

There's another streaming media box on the market, but you won't be able to find the 'Scooby-Doo' movie on it. Oh, wait -- yes, you can. That is, if you're looking for the version that features Shaggy and Fred double-teaming Velma inside Old Man Withers' haunted dildo factory. Those meddling kids! But seriously, the FyreTV streaming porno box (NSFW link, obviously) is perhaps the best gift...

New Jersey Bill Would Let Sexting Teens Avoid Child Pornography Charges

It seems that when little Johns and Janes hit that certain age when their bodies begin to undergo some changes, their thumbs start compulsively pressing the shutter buttons of their cell phone cameras, capturing themselves in various states of undress. These puberty-addled souls then feel compelled to send these photos to various friends and love interests, throwing parents and lawmakers into a...

Playboy Is Coming to the iPad, And It Won't Be Censored

Apple may have a strict and widely ridiculed policy on keeping "adult" material out of its App Store, but it's apparently willing to make an exception for Playboy. Yesterday, Playboy founder and world's greatest granddad Hugh Hefner cheerfully announced that his gentleman's magazine will soon be available on the iPad, in its entirety. "Big news! Playboy--both old & new--will be available on...

If the company does not comply...

Ah, Finally. Kinect Porn Has Arrived, Thanks to ThriXXX

Well, it was inevitable. The second we start augmenting reality, using our bodies as controllers, and bringing our physical spaces into video games, we are immediately going to start thinking of virtual sex. The porn industry is no slouch when it comes to getting with the technological times, but, with the Kinect and gesture-based game play, video game booty is the clear next step. So...

FBI Says Video Barbie Girl Could Be Used for 'Child Pornography Production'

When we got our hands on the new Barbie Video Girl a few months ago, we sort of knew that the camera-equipped doll could give rise to a whole new era of kiddie voyeurism. Little did we know, though, that it could spawn a whole new era of homemade kiddie porn, as well. Yet that's exactly what the FBI is worried about, according to a new memo (PDF) that describes the toy as a "possible child...

YouPorn, Perez Hilton Exploit Bug to Obtain Your Browsing History

Researchers at the University of California San Diego have discovered a bug that many sites are using to track the browsing behavior of their visitors.

Cops Can Search Computers With Explicitly Titled Files, Alabama Court Rules

The next time you save child pornography on your hard drive, you probably shouldn't save it under a name like 'KiddiePornXXX.' Doing so, it turns out, may give law enforcement officials the green light to search and seize your hard drive. That's exactly what happened to Corey Beantee Melton, from Alabama, after he took his computer to get repaired at a local Best Buy. When Best Buy's Geek Squad...
