Thanks, Gabe Newell! Even if you didn’t give us Half-Life 3, your company did something big yet again. Namely, after the release of Valve’s VR-exclusive Half-Life: Alyx, the game’s Source engine became free to use for all PC enthusiasts.
And aside from letting us craft unique patches and mods for titles that use this engine, it also allows for high-end cutscene production — Source Filmmaker (SFM). Remember those quirky, fun cutscenes from Team Fortress 2? Well, you can now remake them into porn.
The SFM World
What’s so special about Source Filmmaker porn, you might ask. Well, SFM is what kinksters use to make 3D animated porn scenes of the highest quality. Unlike some hideous 3D porn from the past, SFM content looks and plays like the real thing.
On the other hand, importing models and textures into it is as easy as one, two, three. Overall, SFM is the easiest and most effective way to make adult 3D content nowadays. With that said, let’s now look at the best SFM filmmakers online, shall we?
Did you play Overwatch? We know you did, you geek. We’re just kidding. It’s still an impressive title, full of memorable characters and fun gameplay. But what if we told you that you could enjoy adult content (videos and images) of your favorite heroes? Just imagine D.Va and Ashe sucking off Cassidy and Doomfist. Wouldn’t that be great? Well, thanks to a Patreon account, Yeero, you can enjoy all this and even more in just a few clicks.
SFM creators don’t get much better than Yeero. With their realistic and quite imaginative scenes, this person is probably the most famous SFM account out there. The boundaries of 3D were never this easy to break, and we’re in awe, awaiting what will happen in the next few years with artists like Yeero. Nevertheless, their success didn’t come overnight. Yeero’s catalog goes years back to when Overwatch came out — 2016.
Yeero is famous for both stills and videos. Some content includes characters like Mercy, the already mentioned D.Va, Widowmaker, and many more. However, the creator isn’t using SFM anymore and has instead ventured into the professional waters of Blender. But that doesn’t mean that the content is worse in any way. Nope! Yeero is still making great 3D porn, and you can follow their work on Patreon for just a few dollars.
Dark Dreams VR
SFM websites are full of all kinds of virtual porn too, but few make it count like Dark Dreams VR does. Although not all Dark Dreams content is original — they adapt pre-existing SFM scenes into adult stuff — they make the most of epic fantasy porn. Yup, sexy night elves and big, dominant orcs are part of their porn universe. So, if you like the Elder Scrolls series and are into DOTA 2 and League of Legends stuff, Dark Dreams VR is the SFM account for you.
But it’s not just about epic fantasy. There’s also a ton of sci-fi porn. For example, one of Dark Dreams VR creators, Kaegantonovich, made a full-on scene with Mass Effect’s Liara T’Soni giving a pretty sloppy blowjob, complete with dripping saliva. If you’re into stuff like this, well, there’s no reason not to check out Dark Dreams and their VR content. It will simply blow your kinky mind away — scene by scene.
Yet, as we’ve mentioned, not all Dark Dreams content uses official characters from existing titles and properties. Some of these unique scenes show orcs in a threesome and even a Greek/Roman-themed oral scene. So, if any of that piques interest in you, why not give it a try? You can check Dark Dreams VR on their official page, or become their Patreon, enjoying exclusive content for a couple of bucks a month.
Do you enjoy anthropomorphic animals? Okay, let’s phrase it like this. Do you sexually enjoy animals with human features? Are you a furry fandom person? Great! There’s SFM porn for you, too. Kx2-SFM is an account that brings us the best 3D animated furry porn out there. The scenes are hot, kinky, and most importantly — furry as all hell! So, let’s see what makes Kx2-SFM so good, shall we?
Unlike other furry content that you can enjoy online, Kx2-SFM makes unique content that involves monster aliens and furry females. Yup! It’s a mixed bag of genres and fetishes, so it might not suit everyone. If this combination sparks interest in you and your genitals, well, it’s probably the best SFM content you can find. But don’t be fooled here. Kx2-SFM is all about rough sex and monstrous dongs penetrating petite furies.
A great thing about enjoying porn these days is that you can do it for free. Sure, it’s not ethical and leaves creators without money to pursue new projects, but that’s how it is with all these tube sites we have today. Nevertheless, enjoying some scenes on the likes of PornHub doesn’t have to be illegal. Some creators have an agreement with the site and post their verified, although shorter, videos for fans to have a taste. One of these is GreatM8.
In case you’re into anime, GreatM8 is the SFM account to follow. Their scenes are full of life and great animation, coupled with characters from titles like My Hero Academia. In these scenes, you can watch Himiko Toga and Momo Yaoyorozu finger and lick each other to volcanic orgasms while masturbating yourself. Moreover, GreatM8 makes other fandom 3D porn for titles like Resident Evil, Pokémon, and even Metal Gear Solid.
Have you ever heard of Futanari porn? It’s okay if you didn’t. It’s not as mainstream as some other genres. Futanari is Japanese anime porn that deals with girls who have massive penises hanging between their thighs. But wait! These girls aren’t shemales — they’re just women with humongous cocks. And since they don’t exist in the real world, people who enjoy these fantasies watch DesireSFM’s 3D porn that includes them in every other scene.
DesireSFM offers stills and videos of popular characters from mainstream franchises like The Witcher and Mass Effect. In particular, you can witness FemShep, Miranda, and tough-guy Jack enjoying a threesome in one of their most popular scenes. On the other hand, if you’re into The Witcher series, you can masturbate while watching Yennefer giving a sloppy blowjob to Cerys, who somehow has a gigantic wiener.
Like the previous four accounts, you can become an SFM patreon by subscribing to their work in a few clicks. However, if you’re not sure about the content and want to check it out first, you can watch a couple of their official clips on PornHub or follow them on Twitter. Either way, you’ll get to some of the weirdest yet hottest 3D porn available today. So boot up your pc, get some napkins, and lube your genitals.
Having trouble with delaying ejaculation and prolonging sexual intercourse is a frequent problem for lots of guys. Regardless of your experience in bed, your sexual performance can come under threat if you can’t keep your load from spilling prematurely. Just like erectile dysfunction, it can affect how you see yourself and result in low self-esteem. Luckily, there’s a way to prolong sexual activity that doesn’t involve expensive treatments.
Even though this fact doesn’t make it any less uncomfortable, premature ejaculation (PE) is an all-too-common issue for many men. It occurs when a male reaches an orgasm before he intends to. PE tends to happen within one minute of sexual stimulation and is usually something men can’t control and delay.
We’re not saying it’s a common occurrence to make you feel better. It’s just a fact since almost 30% of guys suffer from it. As such, it’s a source of sexual frustration and crippling anxiety. PE can become such a problem that some guys will begin to avoid any sexual contact in order not to disappoint their partners and feel bad about it.
How long does it last?
Time is a tricky thing. A long period for some is nothing for others. The same goes for masturbation and intercourse. However, there’s no timeframe that you must fulfill to consider yourself normal in sex. The average duration before reaching an orgasm for men is from one to ten minutes. There’s a big gap between these numbers, right? Well, sex therapists suggest that seven to thirteen minutes is the sweet spot.
When it comes to spanking your salami, it also varies. Masturbation differs from person to person, ranging from a couple of minutes to more than an hour. The important thing is not to consider porn actors role models for how long you should last before ejaculation occurs. Not only are they pros at what they do, but the scenes are heavily edited to make you believe every sexual encounter lasts for hours.
What to do to cum in time
Here are some practical tips to help you out.
Sweat it out
Reaching premature orgasms and ejaculation is something you can confront by healthy living. Namely, you need to think about your pelvic floor muscles. With their improved strength, you can better your chances of stopping sperm from shooting out the tip of your penis. These exercises can help with erectile dysfunction too.
Kegel Exercises: With just three sets of thirty reps three to four times a week, doing Kegels can massively improve delaying orgasms. They’re not difficult to do and don’t take much time. You just squeeze the muscles that you use to stop the urine flow while urinating for a second or two.
Hip Thrusts: Hip thrusts are more than useful when it comes to sex, and they improve your mobility, thrust capacity, and core strength. It’s enough to do three sets of ten repetitions to experience improvement. Just lie down with your upper back on the bench and raise your legs to make your body form a straight line.
Front Squats: Another way to treat premature ejaculation with exercises is to do front squats. Spread your feet until they’re shoulder-wide and squat. You can also add weights on a barbell across your upper chest. With three sets of eight to ten reps, you’ll soon increase your pelvic muscle strength and be able to delay shooting load.
Foods to enhance your sex life
It’s no secret that your diet plays a major role in many aspects of life. As such, changing it can make a world of difference to your performance in bed. Numerous studies suggest that eating foods that are rich in zinc and magnesium can help increase the time needed for your penis to explode in jizz galore. Some of these foods include:
Lamb and beef
Masturbation really helps
Another way to improve the chances of not ejaculating prematurely with a partner is to masturbate not long before sex, i.e., at least an hour or two before sex. Moreover, you should try to do it more than once.
The less time passes between you jerking off and having sex with someone, the more it will take you to stimulate your penis again. This is a common technique many men practice, regardless of whether they have PE problems or not. To make this more interesting, you can use sex toys like auto masturbators and pocket pussies.
Although some people think sex is all about penetration, we beg to differ. Foreplay is a legitimate part of any intercourse, no matter how vanilla or kinky it might be. Hence, we suggest you prolong it to make the whole act more enjoyable. Not only will your sex last longer, but you’ll have additional fun and learn new things about yourself.
Whether it’s oral or finger sex, you shouldn’t shy away from it. Giving head to your partner will make up for your PE problems. However, it’s best to experiment and get some sex toys from lovegasm.co/collections/auto-masturbator. With that, a vibrator or dildo will work wonders for your partner before you penetrate them with your penis.
There are two additional techniques that you can try out while having sex to prolong it. The first one is to pause and squeeze the tip of your penis when you feel an orgasm near. Hold it as such until you feel the sensation has passed. You can do this several times during sex, and you might eventually overcome PE problems.
The other technique is the “stop-start.” Some also call it edging, and it’s pretty common in dom/sub relationships. The whole point is to stop having sex as soon as you feel like you’re going to cum. Wait for some time to pass until you feel less aroused and jump back in. Again, you should repeat this for as long as you need to.
Reddit still cannot fully define it. Internet dictionaries have tried and sort of can. And most people I talk to still have not heard of it – at least what it is supposed to mean.
No, SFW pron does not refer to safe work smut in this context. Instead, it can refer to some incredibly erotic productions depending on your taste.
Unlike those amateurs online, being the master of knowing masturbatory material, I can tell you what SFM is. It is called SFM porn, and it is the new thing that loads of people use to drop a load.
To be more exact, this term has a number of definitions, but only two or three which I think, count.
According to the masters of slang terminology, Urban Dictionary considers SFM to be…
“Porn that [has] been edited using Photoshop or MS Paint to cover up anything that would be NSFW, usually in a comical manner.”
Years ago, that may have been a decent way to describe it, but the SFM has grown far beyond that. Really it has created its own standard, which should not be considered to be on the same level as the lower level animated erotica, which exists now.
What I think SFM porn really is
Between being blown between my regular hookups and the babes who constantly blow me up on social media, I have had some time to think about the SFM acronym.
According to the nerds who specialize in video games, graphic design, and coding, SFM is a sort of 3D porn meets a deepfake.
Literally, the acronym means Source Film Maker. Usually, this refers to downloading a character’s face or full body model onto a programmed animation to do all kinds of erotic shit.
If you check message boards on some sites, some people consider it to be the same thing as creating digital porn.
Even if you don’t, there are two things that separate this fetish form so many others.
The first is the level of quality. Porno computer-generated images have been around for a long time, but these are so realistic they will keep you longer and harder than you thought possible.
The other thing with will keep you peen feeling supreme are the women these images are based on. No, seriously, take a break from this article and search for this kind of porn with the term “rule 34.”
You will see the digital renderings of women from just about every movie, comic, manga, video game, or some other popular form of entertainment you have ever seen.
Where did this cum content come from you ask?
It’s always hard to track down where anything on the internet originated, especially porn. But in this case, it was a lot easier to figure out what sparked this online sensation.
Fornite 2 was the video game sensation of 2018 and got recognition from programmers and gamers alike. It also happens that unlike other games in the series –this one included beautiful women, which you could play as – and included complimentary graphics.
No wonder Fortnite Chapter 2 sold so well.
It would seem that gamers furiously wanked over many mouth-watering lady characters like Aerobatic Assassin, Beach Bomber, and Sun Strider because I’ve seen them all over the net.
Then there is the factor of gamers being who they are – horny motherfuckers who would wank over anything new – who plastered their face on 3D models for homemade porn clips. It was only within weeks that xTube and other tubes were packed with this new take on hentai/CGI smut.
In fact, during their annual yearly trending porn article in 2018, PornHub reported that Fortnite was their 2nd defining search.
(If you are wondering what was first, Stormy Daniels managed to edge that term out. I don’t wonder why. Do you?)
Within a matter of months, this became a trend, and all sorts of sultry female characters “starred” in sexy scenarios on many meat milking websites.
So, for the past few years, video game girls have been a favorite among internet wankers.
Here are the search terms you need to use if this fetish interests you
Thank the masters of digitally altering designs that several video game characters have been featured on porn sites I frequently look at. It did not take me long to find them, but ranking them all did grab up more of my time than I thought.
10. Gwen Stacy (from Marvel)
It was not the first thing I thought of looking up, but when I started researching this topic, she was the first to appear.
I do think that the modern version of Gwen is pretty hot with her Skrillex-inspired haircut but obvious feminine whiles. The one thing that was a bit weird for me was that her character was usually paired up with Venom.
As you must know by now, I’m no prude, but seeing a guy (or masculine alien-symbiont creature?) stick a dick long-sized tongue into a woman’s mouth is weird even for me.
9. Harley Quinn (from District Comics)
There are tens of millions of picture porn results for the fictitious but popular Harley Quinn, but only several thousand of which are animated.
Of those, there is still plenty of computer-made cartoon porn of the Princess of Crime getting dicked by Gotham’s most notorious men.
And if you care, there are even videos which include the Dark Knight getting pegged. Just look for it on popular tube sites.
8. Mercy (from Overwatch)
Who has never wanted a guardian angel to look over everything that they think and do?
Okay, maybe I wouldn’t, but only because I might make her uncomfortable since I’m so big.
But for those of you who have ever fantasied about a winged woman with a high libido who likes to have her mouth filled with cum, do a Google search for “Mercy cum porn.”
The grammar may be awkward, but I promise you will see tons of semen spilling media.
7. Kim Possible (from Disney)
Yes, I put her here, and no, don’t get all weird on me. I checked, and according to the official canon, she is well over 18 and, therefore, legal.
Gingers are hot, especially when they can flip between death-defying leaps while saving people, and even better when they can ride dicks like a Texan raised cowboy.
And yeah, I too did wank to footage of her fighting Shego years ago. I don’t know what it was, but something about seeing a red-head battle an albino with glowing green fists gave an extra sensation to my goose pulling.
6. Pharah (from Overwatch)
Wearing a highly feminized version of Samus Aran’s armor and bearing a smirk, which reminded me of a female Warhammer 40K warrior, I thought she would look amazing when placed in a sexual situation.
It did not take me long to find out that other people did so too. Not only did they think that through the magic of computers, they did.
So far, there are over 200,000 search results for Pharah in a porn context, and given her popularity, there soon maybe even more. Do yourself a favor and check for yourself.
5. Samus Aran (from Metroid)
Speaking of the intergalactic bounty hunter with a grudge against the Space Pirates of Zebes, she has been featured in some hot action all across cyberspace.
If you think she looked good in a Zero Suit in versions of Super Smash Brothers, check her out the may tube videos she has incidentally stared in. My suggestion is to start with PornHub.
4. Sun Strider (from Fortnite)
Combining an old-school fashion style and class this character certainly deserves a hot spot on this list. And why not, the ’80s are a time which everyone seems to want to go back to.
Maybe it’s the good economic times, the relaxed attitudes around that sniffy white stuff, or the relaxed attitudes around women wearing spandex on the beach.
Perhaps it had something to do with babes dressed in athletic gear in public and no one throwing a bitch fit.
Whatever it was, Sun Strider was the kind of beach girl who SFW makers have figured out how to coax out her epic knockers.
3. Tifa Lockhart (from Final Fantasy)
She has been rendered all over the communities on Deviant Art, Pinterest, and Steam, among others, not to mention many tubes sites online.
And why wouldn’t she be?
Tifa is a badass-fighter, had incredible determination, and not to mention a set of killer knockers.
If you have not heard of her, play some version of Final Fantasy VII. The ’90s and modern versions are almost as sensual as the explicitly sexual games I found online.
2. Lara Croft (from Tomb Raider)
She has appeared in countless games, most of them which were decent, but enough of them were garbage. Then there were the three movies this character were licensed in f which, let’s be honest, two of which were crap.
How lucky it is for everyone that this ideal woman has been realized (not so) surprisingly by amateur porn makers.
No, you nerds, I am not going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to get through the Madubu Gorge. However, I can tell you that found millions of poll pulling porn results for the legendary Tomb Raider online.
If you are interested, send me some tips via the usual channels or tit pics.
1. Tracer (from Overwatch)
As Jack Sparrow famously said, “I couldn’t help it mate.”
And can you blame for putting her in the number one slot? I know that if she were real, you’d want to get into her slot.
She’s not only hot, but the ‘it’ girl when it comes to the SFW, CGI, and hentai genre. Hell, she arguably probably helped launch the first two porn genres on her own.
Also known as Lena Oxton, this virtual woman has been one of the flagship video games.
Add to that, the character’s voice actress is Cara Theobold who, if you have not looked up, is quite good looking herself, too.
Bonus Category: It has never been a favorite of mine, but I know that some of you enjoy it. If you like seeing a hole filled with big dick, you will be happy to find out that you can search for this genre of porn and find plenty of immensely sized penis fucking very flexible vaginas.

Even if you don’t, look up the smut I recommended in this article; you can worship my cock later.

A cock ring causes a harder and longer lasting erection because the penis ring gets tighter with an erection and thus prevents the blood from easily flowing back out of the erectile bodies of the penis so that an erection is and remains maximum: Cock rings are therefore very suitable for men with erection problems or for men who suffer from an erection that lasts only briefly. Even men who normally have a good erection use cock rings to keep the penis extra large and thick, impressing our partner is in our genes and a cock ring can help perfectly. In addition to being able to enjoy sex longer, a cock ring also provides a more intense feeling and a much more intense orgasm. The most stimulating find most men as well as a ring around the ball bag. Let’s find out what is special about sex with penis plug.
Different types, different materials.
There are many types of cock rings and variations on them. Normally the cock ring is worn on the base of the penis; both the penis and the balls go through the ring so that the cock ring is against the lower abdomen. It is often easier to do a cock ring when using a water-based lubricant. There are also penis rings that are only worn around the penis, so even before the scrotum. It can also be very stimulated to wear a ring around the base as well as around the penis or around the ball bag. There are sets available with multiple ring sizes, or for example duo or trio rings that offer everything in one but how about a cock ring with an anal plug, a cock ring with weight or maybe with vibration.
Penis rings are available in hard materials such as Metal (Chrome, RVS, and Aluminum) and in soft, flexible materials such as Rubber, Neoprene, TPR or Silicone. In Leather, it is often cock straps, usually adjustable with printers, laces or buckle. The choice between the many different materials is often personal and certainly advisable to experiment here as well. An important tip in any case is not to use a silicone-based lubricant in combination with a silicone cock ring because the lubricant can then act on the silicone material and drastically shorten its life.
Is a Penis ring or Cock ring safe?
The use of a cock ring is completely safe until the recommended time of 20 to 30 minutes. A cock ring aims to prevent the blood from easily flowing out of the erectile organs of the penis in an erection, so that an erection is and remains maximal. This does not mean that the circulatory system may be completely pinched; this can cause permanent damage to the blood vessels and nerves in the penis. A cock ring should therefore never be too small and get pinched. A good cock ring made of flexible material prevents this and will not quickly pinch too much. In addition to the functional part, a penis ring made of metal is also worn by many men on a daily basis as a kind of jewelry or because it feels comfortable. A metal cock ring maintains its shape and therefore does not pinch in flaccid condition of the penis during prolonged wearing. In the flaccid state of the penis, it is therefore safe to wear a metal ring for a long time because it does not limit the blood circulation. When cock rings made of hard material like metal, therefore ensures the correct size and that the penis ring wears comfortably. In the case of flexible materials, the constant tight connection around the penis is not recommended and it is advisable to observe the recommended time.
A tight penis ring that has been pulled over an erect penis should not be worn longer than half an hour. It is advisable, especially with the flexible cock rings or cock straps to do this with some water-based lubricant so that they can be done easier and do not cause irritation or damage to the skin during the sometimes ‘struggle’ to the whole well to get in place. It prevents even the cock ring pulling because it is easier to handle with some lubricant.
Which size can I order best?
For cock rings or cock rings made of hard materials like the metal (Chrome, RVS, Aluminum) it is important that the right size is chosen and gives a good hard erection but does not pinch with all the consequences. A cock ring that is too small can cause damage yourself and the large cock ring will not achieve the desired effect. Most types of cock rings are available in sizes 40, 45, 50 and 55 mm. in diameter (inside diameter) Some models are available in 60 mm. Depending on the manufacturer sometimes also different sizes such as 41, 44, 48, 51 or 55 mm. stated, this is because they are derived from the inch dimensions. As a rule, you can say that a 40 mm. cock ring is suitable for the small penis, 45 mm. the most sold size and is therefore average. A 50 mm. is more suitable for an average penis that is slightly thicker on average and 55 mm. for the bigger penis. The 60 mm. is best suited for men who often use a penis pump and have therefore achieved a good result. The characteristic of men also appears to be that they always want to estimate their penis bigger when it really is. To have to exchange a penis ring for a smaller size is therefore quite embarrassing. But what size do you really need?
To find out which size cock ring you can best order, you can do the following. Make sure your penis has a hard erection, usually the point that you are almost ready during masturbation the moment the penis is in the ‘hardest’ phase. Then measure the circumference of the penis with the base (for example behind the ball sack, flat against the lower abdomen) with the lace or string. With the lace or string you measure the circumference of the penis, through that part of the lace or to measure the string now you know the circumference of your penis. To determine the diameter for the correct cock ring, divide your measured circumference by 3.14 (pi) and because you want the cock ring to stay in place and do its work effectively, the cock ring may be 3 to 4 millimeters smaller than what you have calculated.
Just a calculation example:
With the lace or string you measure a circumference of 15 cm. You share this outline 3.14. Thus 15: 3.14 = 4.78 cm. rounded, this is 48 mm. in diameter. Get 3 to 4 mm there. From and you have the correct inside diameter for your cock ring. In this calculation example, the best choice would be a cock ring of 45 mm. to be.
The maintenance of a penis ring or cock ring
To keep the penis ring in good condition and to keep it hygienic, it is important to clean the cock ring with soap and water after each use or to spray it with a so-called toy cleaner. The use of a toy cleaner effectively ensures that all bacteria are killed and the next time you can safely use your penis ring again.
There are so many types of penis plugs on the market, and some of them vibrate or connect with electrodes, but without the right design, such as the solid or hollow tapered penis plugs you will not get the full urethral pleasure. Grip the entire length of the stick with your fingertips and pay attention to the points where parts are attached to each other. During sexual play and stimulation, the penis would quickly feel the sinking effect of the ball to the frenulum.

When you walk, cycle or sit, the balls gently move against the vaginal wall (and your g-spot) and you feel a slight internal vibration. You do not immediately get an orgasm but the fact that your g-spot is stimulated gives an erotic and exciting feeling. You can wear them all day long: whether you are at home, sitting on the bike or at work. You can also enter them only during sex.

Yoni egg: instructions for use
For starters, you’ll tame your yoni egg. Then you can introduce it. So you can do introductory sessions of your egg and keep a few minutes to do exercises to tone the perineum.
In some women who know their body very well, it is also possible to wait until your body wants to take it out of itself.

The yoni eggs sold online are of different sizes that can be divided into three groups: small, medium and large, which corresponds to a height of 30, 40 and 50mm .
The size of your vagina will determine the size of the egg or balls; Obviously, the bigger the egg, the more you will feel it. It is necessary to feel it physically to work the muscles but not if you want to work only with vibratory energies of the stone (in meditation for example).
Large: this size is indicated if you have a large vagina, simply, and you can not feel the medium size egg.
It is also indicated in case of relaxation of the perineum, for example when:
You can not feel or contract your vagina anymore.
You suffer from urinary incontinence: you have leaks when you laugh, cough or sneeze, you often need to go to the bathroom.
You have difficulty emptying your bladder.
An exception: If during reports, the “woman on” position causes you to have lower abdominal pain, choose an egg or smaller balls to avoid pain. Practice the exercises diligently to tone your muscles and prevent the uterus from falling further.
Medium: this size fits most women.
You get to contract your perineum but you feel like it could get better.
You master the size “big”.
Small: eggs of this size are barely larger than a tampon and most women can not feel them, at least not at first. An egg of the size “small” is used in the following cases:
For vaginal meditation (the goal being to feel and work with the energetic vibrations of the stone, you do not need to feel the egg on the physical plane – on the contrary, it would be rather embarrassing).
To wear it for several hours without being embarrassed.
You have a good command of the “average” size and you want to push the exercises even further with the “small” size.
You suffer from vaginismus.
You are virgin.
Why decide to use a Yoni egg?

Once the session is over, you will remove your Yoni egg from your vagina . If you have a model with holes, then just pull gently on the string. Otherwise you will “spawn” it naturally.
It must then be cleaned with a mild soap before sterilizing for about ten minutes. This operation is not mandatory after each use but strongly recommended to avoid any risk of infection.

Everyone is busy & is leading a fast lifestyle today. But amidst this pace, lovers may just want to take a more relaxed approach to lovemaking which can be integrated & adjusted along with their work & social life. To capitalize on the few moments that partners do get with each other, they would want to be at the top of their game in terms of performance. And here comes the sex pillow. It’s a practical, minimal sex accessory that helps to facilitate comfortable positioning for more enjoyable lovemaking.
It’s to stress here a sex pillow is not a regular pillow that you sometimes use while having sex. In fact, a sex pillow is the one which is especially designed for sex and erotic moves. You will find them in varied styles, sizes and shapes. Some are curved. Some are big in size while some are moderately sized. However, the most popular of these are wedge-shaped sex pillows which come with a slanted slope for better support.
Top benefits of sex pillow
If you are still in a dilemma about whether or not to use sex pillows, here are its major advantages to convince you.
Unmatched support for the body
A sex pillow is especially designed to offer better support to different areas of a body for a pain-free and more delightful experience. From lifting the hips for sideway sex to elevating the bum for rear entry to boosting the back for hot penetrative sex- a sex pillow always ensures more backup compared to a regular pillow. Put simply, sex pillows are specifically shaped to hold the body up and a regular pillow is just meant for sleeping with head on them. Thus, with a sex pillow, you will always experience better comfort & support under back or hips or knees and so on.
For example, a wedge sex pillow is great for a painless and smooth doggy style play. Why? When a woman bends down to a doggy pose, she tends to experience pain on both hands and knees during prolonged sessions. It’s because in this case, her body weight rests on these two parts. But when you do the same thing with a sex pillow it’s always a pain-free experience. In this case, the woman would just have to lie down on the pillow on her stomach and the pillow’s elevated end would boost her rear before the man. This way, she doesn’t need to put pressure on her hands & knees. When you perform doggy-style sex on a sex pillow, it’s the pillow that will bear the pressure.
As sex pillows are meant to extend powerful support to different parts of the body, it’s always more comfortable to have sex on them. These pillows are especially great for those who suffer from backache or some kind of body pain that make sexual acts strenuous for them. No wonder, a lot of middle-aged couples swear by sex pillows for dreamy comfortable sex.
Amazing for all body contours
Sex pillow is amazing for all body builds. If you are complaining of missing out on deep penetration due to the small size of your male partner- sex pillow will solve the woe for you. Again, if your male partner boasts a large size and you are scared of slipping out completely-count on sex pillow.
Great for various positions
You can take the support of sex pillow for just any position. Whether you are craving for strong G-spot stimulation during missionary sex or wild anal fun or vigorous oral sex or a thrilling 69- everything can be done on sex pillow. And, that too with more comfort and success.
Sex pillows are specifically designed to be more stable. Unlike regular pillows, these pillows won’t sink down after a while. It’s to stress here, sex pillows are strategically made with premium high-density foam for sturdy support.
Before you can understand one of the most popular Tomb Raider porn videos online, you need to know about a key scene in a recent Tomb Raider game.
In 2013’s Tomb Raider, Lara Croft sets out on an archeological adventure to find a lost civilization. Thanks to a storm, Lara ends up shipwrecked on a mysterious island full of hostile cultists. These cultists capture Lara and her crew.
In an infamous scene, one of the cultists grabs Lara by the shoulders, pulls her in close, and runs his hands down her body suggestively. He then pushes her against a wall, and brings his face right up to Lara’s neck. Lara, thankfully, barely manages to escape.
The scene caused much controversy in 2012: Lara is an iconic character, and for some people the idea of subjecting Lara to sexual threats felt uncomfortable, especially when considering the gender roles at play. Threats of sexual violence are not something games normally pose as a potential danger to male heroes like Nathan Drake from Uncharted, for example. But once the game was released, everyone found out that the scene with the cultist was minor—while the part helped set up the story for the game, Tomb Raider never actually made Lara Croft suffer rape.
In 2014, two guys got together and formed a group called StudioFOW. They hoped to create long porn films digitally featuring the heroines of popular video games, using a program called “Source Filmmaker”—a tool released by Valve that allows people to make movies, which are called SFM for short, using the Source engine. You can think of these creations like machinima, or movies that use digitally created models instead of human actors. Using character models that are sometimes ripped straight from games, tech-savvy people can use Source Filmmaker to put together movies with ease.
StudioFOW’s first project took three months to create, and it was called ” Lara in Trouble.” The movie depicted a “what-if” take on 2013’s Tomb Raider. In their version of the story, Lara doesn’t get away. In their version of the story, the threat looming at the start of Tomb Raider actually becomes real, and instead of going on to save her friends, Lara Croft gets repeatedly gangraped by her captors.
Shortly after the gruesome 17-minute porn was released on the web, it went viral—on the porn site XVideos alone, it’s been watched 2,836,891 times. This doesn’t count the number of times people have downloaded Lara In Trouble off of StudioFOW’s website, or the number of times people have viewed smaller clips of Lara in Trouble in GIFs on social media, or smaller porn websites. Lara in Trouble got popular enough that StudioFOW expanded to include multiple collaborators, such as animators, voice actors, and artists, who have come together to work on video game porn movies as a hobby. After Lara In Trouble, StudioFOW released KUNOICHI in 2014, a shocking 34 minute film where Dead or Alive protagonist Kasumi gets abducted and is repeatedly raped by demons.
To be clear, the YouTube trailers for StudioFOW movies don’t really prepare you for what’s in them. They’re PG-13 at most, but what’s in the movies is as explicit as it gets.
At current, StudioFOW is working on a couple of porn films, including Arena of Depravity, a World of Warcraft movie that follows a Draenei slave called Yrel who is raped by orcs that want to mentally break her:
Another in-progress film includes a BioShock Infinite porn featuring Elizabeth. Not as much is known about this film as it is early in production, but it’s supposed to include three “erotic stories” in the BioShock multiverse:
While StudioFOW is part of a subculture that appeals to a niche audience within video games and machinima, they’re not exactly a tiny operation. They’re also one of the more successful studios making porn about video game characters. StudioFOW still pulls in over $6,000 per video production on crowdfunding site Patreon, thanks to hundreds of supportive fans who are hungry to see what else StudioFOW comes up with. For these fans, StudioFOW’s reliance on rape isn’t off-putting. For these viewers, rape, or the fantasy of rape, is a very sexy thing—and if anything, StudioFOW doesn’t go far enough, according to some fans.
But make no mistake, StudioFOW productions are brutal. In any given StudioFOW movie, you can count on the camera closing up on women’s faces, so the viewer can see just how much the sex is hurting them. After sex scenes, the women gush semen or vomit semen endlessly, from just about every orifice at once. Occasionally, scenes emphasize the damage the rape is causing by letting you see inside bodies, X-Ray style. Some can even be viewed as inserting penis plugs to teen slaves.
The women might protest, and they might cry, but the action doesn’t stop. Instead, the films intensify as they go on: many of the films build up to gangbangs, and increasingly rougher sex. In one particularly gruesome scene in Kunoichi, a giant demon penetrates Kasumi so deeply that every thrust by the demon lifts Kasumi’s ribcage up. Kasumi screams in pain—the demon is tearing her up inside. Eventually, she gets hurt so badly, she collapses into a “mindbreak” state. The demon pulls out, and Kasumi crawls after him, asking for more. From that point forward, the men no longer have to force Kasumi into submission—she enthusiastically participates in the gangbangs.
Based entirely on their internet presence, StudioFOW give off a ‘devil-may-care’ vibe. To an onlooker, it might seem as if they are the product of 4Chan/internet culture. They go by internet handles, which renders their identities anonymous. They’re fans of hardcore hentai. They seem to a revel in the idea of shocking other people, or pushing people’s buttons. All of the films I’ve watched feature cameos by the Scout from Team Fortress 2—he often sneers and smirks in the background of certain sex scenes, as if he were a troll.
In an interview with Lewd Gamer, a founder of StudioFOW who goes by the handle ‘Darkcrow’ says that his group was founded in direct response to their disappointment with modern hentai. “[Hentai] has really stagnated in terms of darker, more hardcore content over the past few years, so we wanted to bring back a tiny slice of the glory days,” Darkcrow said.
The StudioFOW website also pushes that narrative. “If you’re here for vanilla stuff, you’re in the wrong place,” the official StudioFOW website warns. “We’re always pushing boundaries and making sure the most unexpected of things happen.” They describe their work as “insanity.” Together, it comes across as if StudioFOW is trying to be ‘edgy’ with their porn.
But, those are appearances. Over the last week, I’ve spoken to many of the people who work with StudioFOW in some capacity, in an effort to better understand what kind of people make these films. On the one hand, I wasn’t interested in talking to StudioFOW simply to write a takedown of their work, repulsive as some people might find it.
I understand that people have specific fantasies, and it’s difficult to talk about these things honestly without shaming others for their kinks. I’ve spoken to a few rape survivors who told me they enjoyed some fiction that depicts rape—the otherwise-problematic media becomes a way to process an experience, if that makes sense. On the other hand, StudioFOW’s work profoundly unsettles me, and as a rape survivor myself, I don’t necessarily want to be an apologist for what they do. So, it’s been a curious exchange, and a difficult balance. Here’s what I’ve found.
Based on earlier interviews, StudioFOW made it seem as if they formed in an effort to push back against erotic SFM that was too safe, too boring. I reached out to StudioFOW to ask about this over email, and I got into contact one of the founding members, Darkcrow. When I pressed Darkcrow on why StudioFOW was formed, he seemed less adamant about what his group stands for.
“To be honest with you, there were no philosophical or moral reasons behind forming the studio,” Darkcrow said. “I think due to the nature of our content so far, we naturally seemed to fill a void in the community.
“In the late ’90s and towards the middle of the last decade there was a real abundance of quality hentai animations coming out of Japan,” Darkcrow explained. “I’m talking about original and clever stuff—not to mention visually striking [material] with unique animation styles and interesting characters. Starting about 5-6 years ago many of these studios went out of business, and, as a result, there has been a real stagnation of quality erotic animated content which I personally found disappointing.”
Specifically, Darkcrow is referencing titles such as Bible Black, La Blue Girl, Discipline, and Cambrian—hentai that is famous for being sexually violent and for including dark themes. La Blue Girl, for example, follows a female ninja who has to use sex-related ninjutsu to fight against sex-hungry demons.
“Without sounding too arrogant—because we can never match a professional studio in terms of quality—StudioFOW tries to emulate old school Japanese hentai animations and bring some of the styles you find in hentai,” Darkrow said.
StudioFOW films don’t just take cues from hentai. Traditional porn is an obvious influence in StudioFOW’s work. The sex depicted might be fantastical and unrealistic thanks to the inclusion of things like orcs and demons, but you can still expect a scene to end in a cumshot and to use standard porn camera angles. The work is also influenced by anime, fanfiction, and visual novels.
StudioFOW makes what is known as “non-con,” which is short for “non-consent.” As in, rape. The term ‘non-con’ could be considered a deflection, a way to call the genre something other than rape—some fans bristle at the mention of rape, even if that’s technically what is being depicted. But, in the eyes of a fan, it’s not as clear-cut. For fans of the genre, the characters in question could be interpreted as ‘passionate’—forced sex becomes something admirable, a sign of love, or anticipating the desires of your partner. Or perhaps the woman ‘wanted it’ all along—curiously, both Lara and Kasumi always make sure to announce when they’re about to cum. They sometimes touch themselves. They tell their rapists when something feels good. These are the sort of details that make the fantasy and its dependence on a power dynamic evident. The movies at once want to convince the viewer that they’re brutalizing these characters, but also, they’re not going that far. They’re enjoying it, aren’t they? And so can you. If you’re into that sort of thing, of course.
Groups like StudioFOW are offshoots of a larger Source Filmmaker community with a more public face. Every year, Valve hosts a competition for SFM films, and there are categories for shorts, action movies, comedy movies, and drama movies.
In one award-winning SFM short, for example, a typical Team Fortress 2 match is summarized in 60 seconds. As of this writing, this video has been viewed 482,209 times on YouTube. In another highly-praised SFM short, Portal 2 personality cores discuss how to shoot a scene involving an explosion. As of this writing, the personality core video has been viewed 110,555 times. Compare to Kunoichi, which StudioFOW claims has been viewed over one million times. But, despite the popularity of Kunoichi, it’s undeniable that family friendly SFM work that riffs off popular Valve characters is more ubiquitous on the whole—an endless number of shorts involving just Team Fortress 2 characters can be found on YouTube alone.
Then there’s more “vanilla” erotic SFM—that is, porn that is consensual. Most of the work that I’ve found aren’t actually movies—they’re stills depicting sex scenes between pretty much any video game protagonist you can think of. Or, the erotic SFM will be a short GIF depicting penetration that loops. One erotic SFM artist named Sam Denham told me that she made gay porn of Team Fortress 2 characters because it was a natural extension of ‘shipping.’ In this case, making erotic SFM of video game characters is no different than writing, say, fanfiction—it’s a way for a fan to express their appreciation of a work.
“Making my own erotic images with the characters that I’ve come to love so much is entertaining to me and lets me contribute to the fandom,” Denham said.
According to many of the people I’ve spoken to who produce erotic SFM work, there’s a divide between the “normal” SFM community, and the “erotic” community—think of the divide between Hollywood and the porn industry, and how people producing adult films are taken less seriously than big stars. This tension exists even though erotic SFM has been around just as long as vanilla SFM has.
“Within a week [after Source Filmmaker was released in 2012] the first [erotic] animated gifs came out,” Ganonmaster, a software engineer from the Netherlands, told me. Ganonmaster is the proprietor of SFMLab, a popular website that hosts a variety of character models that anyone looking to make erotic SFM content can use. This is where StudioFOW gets many of its own models—not Valve’s own official service, Steam Workshop. While Steam Workshop also holds a variety of user-generated content that people can use in SFM films, Valve isn’t as open about sex on Steam: a good number of sex games released on Steam have been censored. Valve is just as harsh on sexual content on Steam Workshop, making websites like SFMLab necessary for erotic SFM fans.
According to Ganonmaster, even in its early days, the erotic SFM community held a soft spot for two franchises: Mass Effect, and Tomb Raider. Perhaps this isn’t surprising—Lara Croft has always been a sex symbol in gaming, and Mass Effect lets players romance and seduce its characters. That StudioFOW would start out with Lara Croft specifically almost feels clichéd.
“[Lara Croft] was one of the first nude models ported to the Source Engine at the time [StudioFOW formed],” Darkcrow said, “And from a technical standpoint the model was good enough that we could animate her in different poses without the joints deforming too much.”
Once StudioFOW has an appropriate model, they “rig” them—that is, they prep them to be animated. 3D character models are made up of things called “bones,” and these bones allow people to define how a character model moves. Normally, you can expect bones in places like a character’s arms and legs in a game. But erotic SFM necessitates sprucing up models with details not found in a character’s actual game. “[We add] mouth bones, hair bones, accessories, [we dress them] up in outfits that closely resemble their game counterparts,” Darkcrow explained. Sometimes, this means taking artistic liberties. In a short produced for Patreon backers, StudioFOW rendered the Mass Effect character Liara with a human-like vagina, for example—something which isn’t actually canon in Mass Effect, at least as far as anyone knows. Asari, a mono-gendered alien species in the world of Mass Effect, are supposed to have sex via mind-meld.
“Some modelers like to really ‘enhance’ the assets of the females into unrealistic territories whilst other modelers like to keep the assets to canon proportions,” Darkcrow said. “If the nude model resembles the actual in-game model as closely as possible, it helps immerse the viewer. So when we are creating our custom meshes we try to stay close to the in-game proportions.”
Like more traditional porn, StudioFOW productions always provide a flimsy reason for why sex happens, and these stories actually get storyboarded out, as any animation might. Darkcrow reasons that stories “help the immersion factor” for fans, so StudioFOW always makes sure to include lore for their creations.
“After [storyboarding] we pose the models in Source Filmmaker and build the sets using various SFM models,” Darkcrow said. “Then comes the arduous process of animation, which can take up to two months for a 15 minute movie. We do this in phases, first by blocking out the animation, then our voice talents record their lines and we sync their dialogue.”
For Lara in Trouble, StudioFOW actually ended up using Lara’s in-game combat audio—and given the violent nature of the rape scenes, the audio was eerily appropriate. Lara sounds distressed and like she’s in pain in the actual game, after all, and as many critics have asserted over the years, pained women in video games often sound inadvertently sexual. In an interview with Lewd Gamer, StudioFOW explains that they “had to make the movie a rape fantasy due to the audio limitations.” Now that StudioFOW have the resources to hire voice actors, they continue to make rape fantasies anyway.
After audio is sorted out, StudioFOW moves on to the smaller details.
“Finally, we animate the faces,” Darkcrow said. “Once all that’s done we run the final draft, make any necessary tweaks and create a master copy for release.
“The hardest part is definitely that lipsyncing phase where we have to bring the character to life. It’s really difficult work but necessary to make the movie look good.”
There’s only so much that they can do with Source Filmmaker, of course. In a different interview, StudioFOW said that they often bump up against the limitations of the tool. “Particle physics are also a big problem,” Darkcrow said. “Getting realistic cumshots to work is nearly impossible due to the models not having collision detection.” Additionally, there’s no way to get around the uncanny effect that certain models have. Even if StudioFOW spends time making characters more conventionally attractive, they’re still limited by what computer graphics can handle. It’s no wonder that many developers opt to make sex scenes in games simply fade to black—it’s difficult to depict video game sex in a way that isn’t cringeworthy, period.
StudioFOW’s work depicts rape, a thing that is, for some people, a very real and horrifying experience. And yet, despite its taboo nature, the studio’s work still exists. It still gets people off. It’s somewhat popular, even. Does its existence reflect the tastes of the people creating it? And if so, should that be a cause for worry? Darkcrow doesn’t think so.
“I don’t believe that personal fetishes play a part, at least not for me personally,” he said. This answer seemed bizarre to me—how do they ensure that what they’re depicting is ‘hot’ if they personally don’t find it attractive? Darkcrow says that, for him, making something look good comes down to the technical details more than what the sex actually depicts. Stuff like lighting, the fluidity of the animation, how good the models are, the camera angles, the audio levels, the variation of sex positions and their tempo—those are the things he worries about the most. He says he does this for the sake of the fans, who provide funding for StudioFOW productions.
“I think it would be wrong of us to force personal fetishes into these movies as you lose sight of the bigger picture in the process, so it’s my job to make sure we’re all doing what is best for our fans, whose support has put us into the position we are in today,” Darkcrow said.
“I think we have a healthy outlook on sexuality in general,” Darkcrow asserted. “This medium allows us to explore fetishes in a safe environment where 3D models are used instead of actual people…we don’t think there is enough education or meaningful discussion about the depths of human sexuality in our society at the moment.
“There seems to be an aversion to discussing the psychological aspects of sex, which is disappointing as everyone should be able to explore the naughtier sides of our sexuality without the fear of labels or branding. If our work can spark up some debate or get people thinking about taboo content in a new way then I think we have achieved our goal,” he said.
Darkcrow also emphasized to me that it’s important to remember that their work isn’t real—it’s fantasy.
“I think part of being a responsible adult means having the ability to differentiate between fantasy and reality,” Darkcrow said.
“We aim to make movies for responsible adults…this medium bypasses the seedier facets of the pornography industry. In live action movies the viewer never really knows if the actresses are being exploited, especially in rape fantasies.
“We animate digital models in a safe environment, and the voice talent records from the safety of their own homes, which means that our medium is the ideal platform for exploring these darker themes with a clear conscience,” Darkcrow said.
The voice actors I spoke to confirmed this—in fact, they seemed very enthusiastic about the work they were doing with StudioFOW. One voice actor, Anastasia Snow, described her collaboration with StudioFOW as “embarrassing” but “fun.” Other voice actors, like HangingRabbit and Mr. Kristoff, view this sort of erotic voice acting as a sort of interesting challenge. “The hardest part is doing orgasms,” HangingRabbit said. “[Voice acting for StudioFOW] allows me to really push myself and my performance,” Mr. Kristoff said.
Of course, StudioFOW does understand that the content of their porn can make people uncomfortable.
“The content of our movies can be polarizing,” Darkcrow admitted. “We do get death/rape threats and trolls [because of our work.]
“I feel this either stems from unhealthy obsessions with the characters chosen for our movies or the individual’s social and political beliefs,” Darkcrow said. “Of course, they are entitled to their opinions, and we welcome criticism with open minds. However, when they cross the line into harassment over content that is created by consenting adults for consenting adults that does not break any laws, they are wrong.”
StudioFOW also chalks up part of the outrage that their work receives to cultural differences—many of the members of StudioFOW are from all over the world, and they borrow heavily from a certain Otaku subculture found in Japan.
“We have a pretty massive fanbase in the Far East, and this kind of adult content is ingrained into their culture, so we target them mainly with the non-con themes as they understand it instantly,” Darkcrow said. “I think Western audiences have quite a ways to go before they becomes as accepting of this theme, but judging by the tremendous fan response the numbers are bigger than we initially thought.”
Still, it’s worth noting just how often Japan gets used as a scapegoat, a get-out-of-jail-free card that can come into play whenever people discuss sexuality and nerdy things. The way some people pose it, anything hailing from or influenced by Japan is immune to criticism, because being critical is the same as being culturally insensitive. Obviously, cultural differences are important to take into consideration, but the potential problem with this line of thinking is that it can peddle the idea that Japan is really different. I mean, have you heard about the ridiculous tentacle rape sex they like!? Wow! Meanwhile, one of the biggest brands of 2015 in the USA is 50 Shades of Grey, a movie/book that could be interpreted as ‘non-con’ if not outright rape thanks to the questionable-at-best depictions of BDSM and consent between its protagonists, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Maybe the cultural differences when it comes to sex aren’t as pronounced between Japan and the USA as people think.
Despite StudioFOW’s lax attitude toward subjects like rape, there are lines that even they are not willing to cross.
“Anything illegal is out of the question,” Darkcrow said. “We’ve done fantasy animals and monsters before, but guro, underage, and scat type content is out of the question.
“We have no problem with gay and lesbian content and actively encourage SFM porn makers to be diverse when creating new content. Futanari is another popular category, and whilst we personally have not done it yet many in the community have built thriving portfolios on this content type alone, so it’s wonderful to see the diversity being accepted by an open-minded fanbase,” Darkcrow said.
While StudioFOW’s has a reputation for taking things too far, erotic SFM can indeed get darker.
“A few people within the larger community are very much into lolicon, to the point where they create nude models of characters like Clementine from Walking Dead and Sunny from Metal Gear Solid,” Ganonmaster of SFMLab told me. “Luckily the community seems to be aware [that this type of content is illegal and offensive].”
The video game companies who own the rights to the characters who appear in StudioFOW’s movies don’t necessarily take kindly to erotic SFM, period. According to Darkcrow, StudioFOW has received a couple of takedown notices. One was supposedly for the Arena of Depravity trailer:
According to StudioFOW, the notice was issued by a firm that Activision hired to police their intellectual property. The problem, StudioFOW claims, was that the trailer was thought to depict the sort of sexual content that exceeds World of Warcraft’s actual “T for Teen” rating. As the YouTube trailer, unlike the end product, is rather innocuous—there is no sex in it—StudioFOW says that they “laid out the case and [Activision] dropped it.” I contacted the firm to ask for verification, but they did not respond in time for publication.
In another incident, StudioFOW claims that Valve issued a cease and desist order that demanded that StudioFOW take down an image of Team Fortress 2’s “Scout” character from their website. Ironically, the Scout is one of the few characters in StudioFOW’s films who remains clothed during sex scenes. We also contacted Valve to ask for verification, but they too did not respond in time for publication.
This isn’t a problem limited to StudioFOW, either. According to Ganonmaster, after a Game of Thrones erotic SFM received mainstream attention in an article by Buzzfeed, SFMLab was asked by a firm representing HBO to take down models belonging to the official Telltale video game version of the Game of Thrones characters. I contacted the firm allegedly representing HBO, and they declined to comment. However, it is worth noting that, when Buzzfeed originally published their article in February 2015, they included screenshots of SFMLab’s version of Cersei Lannister, who is played by Lena Heady. If I search for Cersei Lannister on SFMLab now, a month later, there is no Cersei Lannister model to be found—so if nothing else, Game of Thrones models did indeed get taken down from the site.
“Whether or not it’s ethical to use character models with the likenesses of real people to make a porn animation is another matter entirely,” Ganonmaster said. “But I can’t dictate what people use those models for…[the models] weren’t NSFW, and I removed them when HBO objected. Either way, I always try to comply with takedown notices. I’m not a lawyer.”
It’s not the first time that fans have gotten into hot water for using the naked video-game likenesses of real actors. Two years ago, Ellen Page was rumored to have pursued legal action against websites hosting revealing footage of a shower scene in Beyond: Two Souls. You could make the argument that cases like those of Lena Heady or Ellen Page are no different than, say, people stealing and distributing revealing pictures of Jennifer Lawrence on the internet. In both situations, the actresses concerned didn’t give gave anyone permission to possess or distribute naked images of them.
At least one StudioFOW work includes the likeness of a real person. A virtual version of actor Danny Trejo makes a couple of appearances in Kunoichi—at one point, Trejo appears to take part in a gangbang involving Kasumi, a character in Dead or Alive. But StudioFOW doesn’t seem worried about companies taking legal action against them. They maintain that their work is “parody,” though when I asked how this was true, they didn’t quite give me a clear answer.
“[Our work is parody in] the same way you see the mainstream porn parodies of characters like Lara Croft,” Darkcrow asserted. “It’s taking a character a putting them into a subversive situation you would not normally expect them to be.
“We would never claim anything to be canon, and since our work is all non-profit and released for free it falls squarely under the Fair Use copyright laws of the United States,” Darkcrow said. “I’m sure the people understand them to be parodies as we plaster big warning signs at the start of the movie, and on our website as well.”
As StudioFOW becomes more popular, their movies are changing. Fans write in to StudioFOW, asking for specific things. While rape fantasies might have been what got fans interested in StudioFOW’s work in the first place, those aren’t the only thing these viewers are interested in watching. In February, after StudioFOW uploaded a short where Mass Effect’s Liara gets captured by mercenaries and raped, fans asked for consensual scenes with the character and Shepard, Mass Effect’s protagonist. StudioFOW’s response? That if fans gave them at least $10,000 for it, they’d do it.
They’re also reconsidering some of their personal cardinal rules of erotic SFM films. Throughout 2014, they maintained that they would not show male faces during sex scenes—women are always getting raped by unseen men. This, too, is changing.
“A lot of our female fans wrote in saying they’d love to see more interaction between the male and female models,” Darkcrow said. “We are actively working on upgrading our male models to make them more expressive. We even hired a talented male voice actor (Mr Kristoff) to voice our males and hopefully give future love scenes (like the Booker x Elizabeth scene in our upcoming [BioShock porn movie]) a bit more of a dynamic quality to them.”
StudioFOW says that they’re “looking to widen their audience reach” with their upcoming BioShock porn. For them this means fewer rape scenes than usual, though they assure fans that they would never fully stop doing non-consensual scenes.
One of the things that struck me the most about Lara in Trouble is its ending. After Lara Croft is repeatedly raped by her captors, Deus Ex Machina occurs: a gun appears out of nowhere. Lara picks it up. She shoots every man in the room. The words “A Survivor is Born” appear on the screen—it’s the same text that appears in so much of Tomb Raider’s marketing. Even after degrading her and breaking her, Lara in Trouble still wants to maintain a central idea behind the Tomb Raider reboot: Lara’s pain and suffering will transform her into the hero that everyone knows and loves.
Tumblr, a microblogging service that’s impact on internet culture has been massive and unique, is preparing for a massive change that’s sure to upset many of its millions of users.
On December 17, Tumblr will be banning porn, errr “adult content with sex toys,” from its site and encouraging users to flag that content for removal, including those porn involving butt plugs used in New York streets. Existing adult content will be set to a “private mode” viewable only to the original poster.
What does “adult content” even mean? Well, according to Tumblr, the ban means the removal of any media that depicts “real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.”
This is a lot more complicated than just deleting some hardcore porn from the site; over the past several years Tumblr has become a hub for communities and artists with more adult themes. This has largely been born out of the fact that adult content has been disallowed from other multimedia-focused social platforms. There are bans on nudity and sexual content on Instagram and Facebook, though Twitter has more relaxed standards.
Why now? The Tumblr app was removed from the iOS app store several weeks ago due to an issue with its content filtering that led the company to issue a statement. “We’re committed to helping build a safe online environment for all users, and we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to media featuring child sexual exploitation and abuse,” the company had detailed. “We’re continuously assessing further steps we can take to improve and there is no higher priority for our team.” So apparently, this is to avoid both child abuse and bodily abuse as can be glean from other statements online that it was a move to avoid immoral dildos and sex pills and other abusive materials.
We’ve reached out to Tumblr for further comment.
Update: In a blog post titled “A better, more positive Tumblr,” the company’s CEO Jeff D’Onofrio minimized claims that the content ban was related to recent issues surrounding child porn, and is instead intended to make the platform one “where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.”
“As Tumblr continues to grow and evolve, and our understanding of our impact on our world becomes clearer, we have a responsibility to consider that impact across different age groups, demographics, cultures, and mindsets,” the post reads. “Bottom line: There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating the most welcoming environment possible for our community.”
The imminent “adult content” ban will not apply to media connected with breastfeeding, birth or more general “health-related situations” like surgery, according to the company. But it will surely apply to naked alpha male in chastity cages.
Tumblr is attempting to make aims to minimize the impact on the site’s artistic community as well, but this level of nuance is going to be incredibly difficult for them to enforce uniformly and will more than likely lead to a lot of frustrated users being told that their content does not qualify as “art.”
Tumblr is also looking to minimize impact on the more artistic storytelling, “such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr.”
I don’t know how much it needs to be reiterated that child porn is a major issue plaguing the web, but a blanket ban on adult content on a platform that has gathered so many creatives working with NSFW themes is undoubtedly going to be a pretty controversial decision for the company.
