It’s like deja vu all over again, right? Was it not but just last year that Tumblr announced it would “ban” porn, an announcement that came suspiciously close to news that owner, Verizon, was looking to unload the social media platform? So, what gives with Tumblr’s latest announcement?
Supposedly, Tumblr’s new porn “ban” is due to its recent discovery of child pornography that caused the Apple App Store to remove the social media platform from its list of apps. So much for the original ban, right? As a result, Tumblr has announced that, effective December 17, 2019, it will remove all all photos, videos, and GIFs that show human genitals or women’s nipples, as well as any content that depicts sex acts. Nudity related to art, political speech, or health-related situations like breastfeeding will be exempt. You can read more about the ban here.
The last time Tumblr “banned” pornography, the outcome was not favorable to the site. In just a few months after its December 2018 ban, traffic to the site plummeted. One respected tech website reported that Tumblr lost one third of its users.
To be sure, Tumblr has always had a more lenient porn policy than either Facebook or Instagram, and it goes without saying that child pornography should be prohibited and prosecuted. However, if past is prologue, Tumblr should think twice or face yet another mass exodus of users. It seems infinitely more logical for Tumblr, under new ownership, to embrace its porn-filled past and be what it seems tailor-made to be. This epiphany is not likely to happen so long as Verizon remains in the picture, but here’s hoping some other content producer will step up to the plate and restore Tumblr to its glory days.
According to kinkdapp.com, New York tops the list of kinkiest U.S. cities for gay men, with San Francisco finishing a distant 7th. Check out the map below:
Do you agree? Are there any cities that you think should be on this Top 10 list but aren’t?
A video depicting young, Russian cadets dancing in their underwear has gone viral on the Internet and stirred controversy in Russia. Some have called for the lads to be expelled, while at least one person explained that the lads undressed because their dormitory was too hot. Too hot is right.
Watch the video at my Tumblr, Jocks-n-Junk, and ask yourself what else goes on in this dormitory when the cameras are not rolling. I especially like that you can tell which cadets are really enjoying themselves in this homoerotic display just by the bulges in their underwear.
Nuttshelz Bulletproof Jockstraps
Just when you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to undergear, something new comes along that proves you wrong. Such is the case with Nuttshelz. Nuttshelz is a brand of athletic cup designed and invented in the U.S. by Jeremiah Raber, and is designed to protect a man’s jewels from just about anything.
As the company’s website states, “a roundhouse kick to the nuts can actually shatter some plastic cups,” but “this cup won’t crack if you shoot it with a pistol.” Constructed of Kevlar and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, Nuttshelz cups offers its customers two levels of cup protection. “Level I” is designed with professional sports players in mind, while “Level II” is fit for law enforcement and even the military. So, whether it’s a fast ball or even bullets, Nuttshelz has a guy’s private parts covered.
And to say that Raber stands behind his invention would be an understatement. To prove that Nuttshelz are, in fact, bulletproof, Raber has gone the extra mile, allowing himself to be shot in the nuts while wearing one of the cups. Talk about commitment to one’s product! You can see a short video clip here of the shooting, demonstrating the strength of Nuttshelz.
Currently, Raber is trying to raise $30,000 on Kickstarter to fund a similar cup design for boys. You can view the Kickstarter campaign here.
