About the Hosting Situation

milkboys Blog 11 Comments

We had a few downtimes over the last couple of months because it’s not always easy to scrape the money together to pay for the server. These times will hopefully be behind us for a while as I’m planning on using the extra money you generously donated here to pay for this site which I hope is OK with everyone.

Quite a few people also offered me their servers to host the site for free and I’d like to share my thoughts about why I’m very reluctant to accept such an offer. There are several concerns that come with hosting the site on someone else’s hardware. Questions like: What happens when there’s a hardware failure or if I need a configuration changed quickly? Can I just assume that 24/7 admin service comes with the hardware offer?

What happens if the server owner decides that they don’t want to host the site anymore for one reason or another, maybe even without letting us know in advance to give us time to find a new server?

What if the server gets hacked (for example because a private person usually can’t afford the safety precautions in place at professional hosters) and visitors of the site get redirected to sites infected with malware or worse?

There’s also the question if I feel comfortable with knowing that someone has full access to all data related to milkboys, including the e-mails you send me and the IP-addresses of all visitors.

It’s not that I don’t trust the people offering to host milkboys, I really appreciate their generosity and I’m certain they have only the best intentions. But with a professional hosting company none of these questions will come up so you might understand why I would like to keep the site where it is as long as I can, especially since our current host was nothing but helpful and understanding with all legal and financial matters we had to deal with so far.

Love Wins

National history was made at the U.S. Supreme Court today as the highest court in the land ruled that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to legally marry, in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. This makes the USA the 20th country in the world achieving marriage equality.

Word of the 5-to-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges spread like lightning across all forms of social media, as rainbow memes, pro-marriage cat videos and #LoveWins hashtags zoomed the news around the world in seconds.

Within three hours of the announcement, same sex couples in Georgia started getting married, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Emma Foulkes and Petrina Bloodworth of Atlanta received the first marriage license for a gay couple in Fulton County.

Impromptu celebrations sprung-up across the nation, outside the landmark Stonewall Inn in New York City, where riots by LGBT patrons 46 years ago next week are credited with igniting the modern gay rights movement. Bisexuals and trans couples celebrated as well.

In its ruling, the Court determined that the U.S. Constitution does indeed require states to allow same-sex marriages, effectively striking down existing bans in the 13 states and Puerto Rico, and requires every state in the nation to recognize marriage equality.

What good Sex Ed looks like

Jansrud is a Norwegian celebrity and the 29-year-old host of the state-funded educational TV series Newton on Norway’s NRK TV. Recently, Newton aired a segment on puberty featuring Jansrud frankly discussing (and demonstrating) such topics as French kissing, masturbation, and how to give a hickey.

The segment begins with Jansrud explaining that puberty “gives you a new body that can make children if you have sex—otherwise known as fucking, screwing, shagging, getting it on, or making love”.  Jansrud then demonstrates where the clitoris and the sensitive nerves on the penis are located, on both live and rubber models.

“Now, what everyone starts with sooner or later, but rarely talks about, stroking your own sex parts. To masturbate,” she says. “Both the clitoris of the girl and the head of the penis on a boy is full of nerves that make it pleasant to touch.”

She then lubricates the vagina before demonstrating penetrative sexual intercourse on the rubber models, as well as how to use a condom. “For it to be pleasant, it’s vital that the vagina be moist enough,” she explains.”For the woman, you also have to rub the clitoris.”

Jansrud caps off the segment by showing viewers her pregnant belly. She found out she was pregnant on the air in February, and she plans to turn her pregnancy into a recurring segment on the series in the coming months.

This isn’t the first time that Newton has taken such a frank and educational approach to sex. Last month, the series landed in hot water on Facebook when the social network deleted a clip of Jansrud demonstrating where the uterus and fallopian tubes are located on a woman’s body by painting the organs on a naked model’s skin. Another clip showed Jansrud explaining menstruation by filming the blood trickling down a live model’s legs.

Such a straightforward approach to sex education seems to be par for the course in Nordic countries. Back in January, a Swedish TV children’s cartoon segment featuring a dancing penis and vagina went viral. The video featured the lyrics “Here comes the penis at full pace” and “the vagina is cool, you better believe it, even on an old lady.”

Unsurprisingly, Newton’s latest segment has been heavily criticized on a handful of foreign blogs, whose writers seem to think the segment is borderline pornographic and prurient. This is despite the fact that Jansrud also touches on such important issues as homosexuality, the age of consent, and the need to use contraceptives. She’s also quick to assure teens that “there’s no need to rush into having sex. It’ll happen soon enough.”

Yet sex-positive Norwegian commenters are applauding Jansrud for speaking about issues, like masturbation and penetrative sex, so frankly. “Great series, that I would like should have seen when I was in school!” one commenter wrote, while another chimed in: “I am genuinely proud of the fact that Norway is leading the way here. Stand on!”

Perhaps other countries should take a page out of Jansrud’s book and take a similarly frank approach to sex ed, or maybe we wouldn’t have things like chlamydia epidemics at public high schools in America to deal with.

The Boy who Twerked

milkboys Clips & Spots 34 Comments

A video of a 12-year-old, twerking and having a great time at a Pride is going viral. The short clip filmed at São Paulo Pride in Brazil last week was uploaded just days ago, but in that short time it has attracted a huge amount of negative backlash.

The boy is seen dancing in denim shorts to RuPaul’s Sissy That Walk, while being applauded by drag queens and revellers. Posted by Ovenworthy, they wrote: ‘This kid is such an inspiration! Progressives need to work together to create a whole generation of kids like this.’

But others were not so positive. While you should never go into YouTube comments looking for logic and reason, most of the comments were especially vitriolic. The comments may have been especially bad as the video was also posted onto a white supremacy website.

‘This is exactly what I expect from a gay pride parade,’ one said. ‘If you pay attention you will notice that the homosexual agenda very clearly focuses on converting children to homosexuality.’ Others claimed ‘his “parents need to be shot in the street” while others were calling to ‘kill the faggots’. ‘This is nothing new. This is what the Jew/white liberal celebrates,’ a commenter on that forum said. ‘This is why they have been pushing the faggots for so long.’

Hundreds of thousands gather every year in Sao Paulo for Pride, one of the largest LGBTI festivals in the world.

Of course videos like these will always draw criticism, even from gay folks who argue that kids at that age have no idea what they’re doing and are being instrumentalized by the queer movement but personally I have to say that I knew very well what I wanted and who I was with 12 and I think it would be somewhat arrogant to just assume this lad isn’t doing exactly what he wants to do.

Despite his European heritage, he’s developed a cult following in Japan and is lauded by teenage girls because of his “feminine beauty”. Describing himself as a bishonen, Yohio prides himself on his doll-like features.

According to his blog on Japanese social networking site AMEBA, he became interested in Japanese culture when he was introduced to Anime at the age of ten. He then developed an interest in learning the language, and started reading Japanese blogs and following Japanese celebrities on Twitter.

After starting the Visual Kei band Seremedy he was signed to Universal Music Japan and quickly developed a cult following.
