I’m reading up on the Memoirs of a Geisha controversy, since I’d neither seen the movie nor read the book, and the more I read about it, the more pissed off I get. Basically it went down like this:
Japanese woman tells white American man about her past life as a geisha. White American man then writes a novel that sells itself as an accurate memoir of Japanese woman’s life, but instead falsifies a number of her life events, misrepresents her trade, and exoticises her culture. He also names her as a source even though she specifically asked him to keep her anonymous. Japanese woman gets death threats. White American man becomes bestselling author.
Then Japanese woman gets fed up and writes her own memoir to set the record straight. Meanwhile, white American man’s book gets adapted into a film that grosses $162 million and wins three Oscars.

This is why I can’t stand Memoirs of a Geisha and will side-eye anyone who claims that book as a favourite.

never read the book watched the movie wasn’t anything special the actors were nice to look at

Anonymous asked: Pro-prostate anon here again. Also, the perineum, as earlier mentioned in conversation, is the external method of massaging the prostate and dudes love that too. My advice to anyone curious about how to write about anal sex without actually having experienced it for themselves, is to research the topic using Google rather than relying on the subjective experience of a small group of individuals. The greatest research resource any writer has is the Internet. Be scientific. <3

bleep0bleep:

Ummm, sorry but, no. Gay men are not the only men who enjoy anal play. I’ve been married for over 8 years, and there is nothing my husband loves more than a prostate massage. Everyone’s body is different. What doesn’t work for you, may work for others. Yes, the prostate gland’s primary function is to produce seminal fluid, however, that is not its only function in sex. It IS possible to make a man come by prostate stimulation alone, that’s a fact, and I’ve done it to my hubby more than once. <3

That’s great to hear, I’m super impressed to hear about you and your husband too, and thank you (these last two are the same pro-prostate anon, right?) for the input! It sounds like you guys have a great sex life together.

Also on the Google suggestion, I know the Internet has vast quantities of information, but it’s a little daunting to type in “anal sex” into a searchbar because what will undoubtedly turn up is porn. Here are some resources for people:

And one more anon on this subject:

"Butt flower" sorry I’m tooooooo busy dying of laughter here

I’ve been laughing, too, anon. \(^_^)/ It’s been really entertaining watching the discussion on butts today on my blog.

bigredcrazyk asked: as a gay guy who's familiar with anal sex, i'd like to set the record straight for all you fangirls. the prostate IS NOT the same as the g-spot. it isn't nearly as sensitive and doesn't drive men to wild moaning and toes curling like most of you write. yes, it does add to the pleasure of anal stimulation to a certain degree, and the more it’s massaged, the more precum is generated because that's where it's stored. the p-spot is usually not stimulated much during penetrative sex though. 1/2

bleep0bleep:

the only way to stimulate it well is with a finger or a toy, same as the g-spot for a lady. when he’s penetrated deep, there is almost zero stimulation to it at all, but shallow thrusts may rub against it a little. now for what really drives a guy wild, the rim itself. the anus, that tight ring of muscle. that’s why rimming and fingering feels so amazing. you don’t have to go deep to get the maximum pleasure, although i’d be lying if i said getting fucked hard and deep didnt feel great too.

SO THAT’S WHERE PRECOME COMES FROM AWESOME THANK YOU FOR THIS INFORMATION I SHALL SHARE FOR ALL MY BUTTSEX WRITING FRIENDS

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Just to add on- Hong Kong is one of the rare examples where it did kind of end up being better off under colonial rule. And before I get jumped on for being a neo-colonialist- I’m saying that as a person with Chinese ancestry whose great grandparents left China because of the accumulated poor situation caused by the Opium Wars and political strife in the early 1900s. Do not dichotomise conflicts outside the world as “White people oppressing POC”. Yes Chinese people have been victims at the hands of the British, then the Japanese- but today the Chinese government is culpable in corruption and human rights abuses- even against its own citizens in the mainland. There were thousands of disturbances last year in China over various issues like land grabs, corruption and pollution. The government has also been oppressing ethnic minorities like the Tibetans and Muslim Uighurs. What you see happening here in Hong Kong is another pattern in the behaviour of an authoritarian government that really needs to be held more accountable.  

Yes, the Opium Wars fucked China up, but the Communists really ruined the country during the 1950s onwards with the disastrous Great Leap Forward. There was a horrible famine caused by state mismanagement- and by the end of it all, it’s estimated anywhere from 18 million to 45 million Chinese died. Far more than died in WW2. And then of course, the infamous Cultural Revolution where there were basically witch-hunts which just caused enormous upheaval and strife, where people were “outed” as “bourgeois” or capitalists or whatever and imprisoned, tortured and publicly humiliated. University students and professors were accused of being traitors. Even the Communist Party today acknowledges it was a complete disaster. While all of this was going on, by comparison, Hong Kong flourished under British rule.

The China you see today that is the world’s second largest economy is a product of Deng Xiaoping’s reform in the 1970s- which involved throwing out huge parts of the Communist economic policies to embrace capitalism- and putting a stop to the blind and rigid adherence to Communist ideology. Economically, China is in many ways very open to capitalism BUT politically, the government is pretty authoritarian still. And quite capable of oppression.

Do not lionise the Chinese government as this heroic “POC” country standing up to “white supremacy”, give them a free pass, or somehow think whatever they do cannot be as bad as Western imperialism. People with my skin colour are perfectly capable of oppression when they have institutional power. And they darned well better be called out for it.
