Words With Slutty Friends featuring Casey Calvert

WWSF Casey Calvert

Word Association is commonly used in therapy as a means of creating a psychiatric evaluation of someone. Participants are instructed to just respond to a given word spontaneously with the first word, thing, or phrase that comes to mind. Some experts in the field of psychology believe that the responses can reveal things about the subconscious mind of an individual.

So, what is in the subconscious mind of a dirty little slut? IAFD.com wanted to know, so to help all you pud pullers out there better understand how your favorite pornstars really think and feel, we asked them for you. And we couldn’t think of a more a more fitting subject to start with than the reigning Spank Bank Award winner for ‘Dirty Little Slut of the Year’ Casey Calvert.

IAFD Welcomes Two New Review Sites!

Welcome New Review Partners!

It’s been a while since we added new review partners, and over the past couple months, we’ve added two.

The first, Porn Valley Vantage, has been with us for a few months now, but I was remiss in celebrating our partnership when it first began  Dr. Chauntelle writes a great blog about sexuality and how it plays a part in adult movies (and how adult movies can play a part in our sexuality) – or, as she puts it, Critical Commentary on Adult Production.

Her mission statement shines a light on the complex nature of porn, and we agree that porn is more than just the old in and out.

Everyone has an opinion about porn ” it’s either good or bad, exploitative or liberating; it’s super hott, or it’s just plain nasty… when, in actuality, it’s more complicated than any one of these “either/or”s.

Just like real life, porn is multi-dimensional and complex, and every discrete element is also part of a wider socio-cultural past, present, and future. PVVOnline/Porn Valley Vantage engages these complexities, connecting the dots and offering readers a unique take on the adult industry.

For as long as we’ve been online, we’ve been interested in these complexities.  Porn is awesome to whack off to, but there’s also a larger issue surrounding it which we also find interesting to ponder.

The second site is brand new to us, Feminist Porn Reviews.  What drew me to them was their sensible reviews and their mission statement which shares a lot of POV with ours, and some overlap with Dr. Chauntelle:

Like many people, we here at FemPorn have a love-hate relationship with porn. We love it because we love sex. But we hate it because so much porn is openly and even proudly misogynistic. And even when it isn’t that bad, too much porn is completely devoid of genuine female pleasure and totally fails to include or even acknowledge a feminine perspective on sex. But porn doesn’t have to be that way, and not all porn is that way. So we love the fact that there is feminist porn that we can love and not hate, and we want to share what we have discovered with you.

We know that’s not everyone’s cup o’ tea, but we trust when you see their name pop up on the list of available reviews, you’ll act accordingly.

We’ve got links to just under 114,000 reviews on the site (113, 907 to be exact; but that number’s going up every day!) and are happy that these two sites are adding to our choir of critics.

If you have a review site you’d like us to consider linking to, drop us a note at iafd@iafd.com
