I'm sure whatever kind of fan who can afford to spend $42k on a single hour long scene has plenty of disposable income and knows what they're doing financially but it sure makes me feel better about the times I've wasted money on stupid things, and not even porn related ones.

But I'll bite and say that my fantasy would involve having no cameras or crew there, just me and my chosen "costar." Though admittedly at that point I'm not sure what I would be legally paying for in most jurisdictions...perhaps a very private and very interactive performance art show? Considering that a girl like Proxy Paige or the aforementioned Lily LaBeau have done anal fisting I'm betting there are people who wouldn't even consider what I'd come up with to be sex.

That's sad to hear, graymane, but kids are like truffle hogs when it comes to sniffing out porn stashes--it's like a sixth sense with them or something (them and girlfriends, wives, mothers...okay, basically anyone who you don't want finding it!).

Of course today a Playboy is practically literature compared to what's offered online, and a hard drive looks way less incriminating, at least until some kid plugs it in and immediately finds the porn.

If China is really trying to "clean" the Internet they may want to move beyond steamrolling DVDs, since that's not how you access porn online (shh! don't tell them). It's like if you wanted to protest a blog by holding a book burning.

By the way, 3.4 million files sounds like practically nothing; did they mean sites? And in the age of cloud storage, what's the point? "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

It kinds of sucks in a way, because I consider finding that first Playboy and/or hardcore mag and then sharing it with friends to be one of those "Eureka!" moments of growing up. It was like that scene in Raiders where Indy found out where the Well of Souls was--you knew you had found something, you just weren't truly sure of its awesome power.

LPee23, I personally prefer that it's not a shared experience, at least in any public, real world sense. Who really wants to go a creepy theater or store to enjoy some porn? Now you fill your niche, at both greater quantity and quality, without having to look someone in the face.

And if we really want we can still share the experience on sites like this and others but with at least a modicum of anonymity and security never truly possible in the brick-and-mortar world. And I prefer it this way for a lot of things outside of adult entertainment too. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

I don't know about the oldest porn site but probably only a few minutes older than the first site since we seem to pervert every form of communication we've ever invented. So I can only assume we eventually did something like this with the telegraph. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

All I can say for sure is thank the overlords of Photoshop and Final Cut Pro for watermarks--I would be lost trying to figure out where half the smut I watch originated! (I guess if it doesn't make you go blind, seeing all that pussy, tits, and ass can scramble your brain. )

The thing is those three magazines are practically anachronisms in the age of the web and digital everything. I don't have much desire for print porn, not even for bathroom reading or those interesting Playboy interviews. And I won't miss them, despite growing up in one of the last generations to have its The Treasure of Sierra Madre moment discovering an abandoned porn mag in the woods or an old building (there are a lot of these stories and they're always hilarious to me). I mean Playboy has become more of a clothing brand and logo to naive underage girls seemingly forgetful that it was founded by this guy.

Now, despite porn being "everywhere," who can or will honestly recognize any of the bigger names in Internet adult entertainment? It's one thing to know about Playboy or Hustler, but how many will publicly admit or even understand "Hell yeah, EverythingButt!"

You now have at least a site or two for basically every consensual taste or turn-on imaginable or practical, but conversely a greater curtain of silence around who's really into what anymore. For example, everyone who knows me understands I like women; a simple majority of them know I have nothing against porn or its entertainment value (or just privately assume it since I'm a guy); more than a few know I regularly watch it; but very few know I'm genuinely into the dirtier stuff or what that even constitutes.

As always, continue to check your finances and credit cards as we all know how vulnerable they can be even without doing business on the web.

I've seen a couple of lists of mainstream sites that should have their passwords changed if you have an account. It's good just to update your passwords from time to time anyway, plus making sure you never repeat them across multiple sites.

Originally Posted by Wittyguy:

I don't use any password management myself; I guess it's like cloud storage, where I feel like there's is just too much separation between me and my info/data. I'm basically paranoid if I can't directly control my own passwords or access to them. And then you still ultimately need to remember the master password to unlock all the others. Sort of like how physicists haven't really come up with a practical way to start a fusion reaction without first starting a fission one.

I do use this site however to help me generate strong random passwords up to 128 characters long (I personally don't feel truly secure until my passwords reach into the triple digits ). You can also control if it includes symbols, uppercase, numbers, and similar characters. Of course I have to save all these generated passwords myself--plus their associated username, since I can't remember that most of the fucking time either!--and that's the catch for me since I know that's vulnerable as well.

The thing is you either have to save all your passwords somewhere yourself or use a manager since a password that is in anyway memorable is inherently vulnerable. Again, don't use a password for more than one account and avoid real words, phrases, and any info that could be associated with you. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

There's a "pornography crisis in the lesbian community"?

Saw this article on Slate the other day, thought I'd share. If you don't have time to read the article, it basically boils down to how the vast majority of porn is catered and sold to straight men, including "lesbian" (more accurately girl-girl) material.

Not to sound too dismissive of this "pornography crisis" but I couldn't help laughing as I read. Not all performers are "Women with extra long fingernails and fried blonde hair looking bored while idly thumbing one another’s [privates]," like the author quotes one of her friends. Nor do they all have "vast, implanted chests" as another respondent complained.

Like I say for so many other issues my advice would be to watch more porn, as not all performers are blonde, bored, and buxom, if such things are ruining your fantasy (as they sometimes do for me). But it's not all bad, as one commenter noted, because despite all of its problems at least lesbian porn passes the Bechdel test.


PS: This thread and my sarcasm relating to the article's premise should be taken with a grain of salt. I'm not trying to offend anyone just because they think porn should cater to more than one type of viewer, just glad to find something written about porn that's actually pretty lighthearted and reasonable for a change.

Here are most of mine alphabetically:

21Sextury.com/21Sextreme: I haven't been a member in a while but I have plenty of content saved. It's wide-ranging yet I only really keep going back to a few dozen or so select scenes. All kinds of models who seem to be equally enthusiastic about the delight they take in the site's nastiness. I mean how else do you describe something like a girl-girl golden shower scene where the girls are smiling the whole way through?

I'm terrible with names, and even worse with stage names, so trying to find my favorite scenes is usually a strange journey through a rat maze of sex acts and confusing East Euro aliases.

ALSScan: All Lades Shaved--sold! Okay, not so much anymore since I haven't been a member in over a year if not way longer, but I used to waste a lot of time rewatching some of their old videos and sets. Not so much more as it all feels like BTS, which it largely is, and I have less and less interest in their standard approach to every scene and/or scenario.

Almost exactly four years ago I originally gave them a 91, a fair score for my feelings of the site at that time. But since then I've lost enthusiasm as they've dabbled in boy-girl (nooo!) and I've found other sites more catering to my depraved interests of shaved, fisted, and pissed young women (not necessarily in that order, mind you).

Good memories, but probably nothing more at the moment.

InTheCrack: Close closeups of beautiful women--what's not to like?

They have plenty of short, filthy videos for when I don't feel like sitting through half an hour of smut. Plus a lot of their videos are like one of those weird portraits where you think the eyes are following you so you keep staring at it. Only in this case you have a boner.

WetandPissy:
Certainly not for everybody, which almost makes me like it even more. But a site that thoroughly and heroically lives up to its name. No short scenes (probably a minimum of sixteen minutes for a solo scene) so I don't exactly make it through every one I start to watch...but not because of a lack of "enjoyment."

I agree, and I wasn't even talking about just porn sites so I should have expanded on my second sentence in that post. Yes, the web provides a huge range of opinions and views, but why actively seek out something that will challenge you and possibly result in you renouncing a belief or viewpoint?

Speaking for myself I don't seek out crazy right wing forums and sites (there are tons of them) but the left wing ones aren't much better (probably about the same number too). Much like you sentiment about PU, I hold for other sites: "I will be honest at times I think I do not fit in here." Because for every good article--well, a decent and halfway original one, at least--there is one spouting nonsense about the curative powers of some natural food or the latest snake oil, or the __ craziest/most untrue things __ said this week/month/year.

As an example I was reading an article about amalgam fillings in teeth--the mercury alloy that is controversial because of the known toxicity of the heavy metal--and the article went from somewhat rational and scientific to wooey bullshit fairly quickly. And then I read the comments; everyone asking about actual evidence, not unconfirmed anecdotes, get their shit handed to them. I was called a troll simply because I pointed out that amalgam isn't a chemical compound but an alloy, a basic distinction that should be understood before delving into the issue.

Thus I come back to PU just for the sanity and civility (okay, and the porn). Because even when liberal sites talk about porn it's mostly for the clicks, not any serious discussion of its pros and cons. Mountains out of molehills is not my idea of rational discussion and debate. It's emotion being substituted for actual thinking. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

I'd say Bonnie is popular for her look, or her amount of tattoos. I read somewhere that it somewhat limits her work opportunities because not every site or studio will shoot someone with that much ink, but like you said she's popular so I doubt it's a huge problem.

But I see "glamour" as overrated anyway--I have a dirty mind and I don't want my porn ruined by some photographer who's so full of himself that he seriously thinks he's shooting nothing more than art. Of course give me only the look--say, like Suicide Girls--without much bite to back it up, I'm equally uninterested. A good performer isn't made by her tattoos, piercings, or total lack thereof; she has to earn it! "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

I sometimes worry that, at least when it comes to porn, not enough people want a civil place to review and discuss it. I mean the Internet is all too often the self-fulfilling prophecy of angry creeps and bigots with the loudest voices, so what's the appeal in a site that doesn't immediately stoop to the crudest level?

So you get a lot of prudish haters or at least some extreme porn-hating feminists who think all porn is part of rape culture, or you get fans who basically fulfill nearly every stereotype the first group thinks of when it comes to describing adult viewers.

I don't think Bonnie's tattoos are that universally loved; it's either accept 'em or leave 'em, because with that many they're hard to ignore. But again, spider-webbed nipples are not exactly what most tattooed American women have anyway. If anything she is the "trashy" stereotype that so many people would envision when they're criticizing tattoos--while of course making exceptions for the types of modifications they do to their bodies.

And there's plenty of tattoo criticism here on PU, though it's considerably more nuanced that what's discussed elsewhere on the web. So much of which boils down to "I don't like tattoos...blah, blah, blah...so just do as I say already!" I for one might not accept all tattoos as equally attractive--I'm still on the fence about the girl with the butthole tat--but I'm not about to go around dictating what people are allowed to do their own bodies.

There's certainly a limited number of jobs where a woman of similar age and educational level can earn even $800/day. It's what the moralists always forget: money will triumph over whatever qualms someone may have when they have bills to pay. And if they had a solution to the "problem" of porn beyond going to church and getting married they might have a point. Otherwise it's falling on deaf ears. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

An update on the Belle Knox/Duke University porn star; apparently there's been some industry backlash because of an internship with tube site PornHub (which the industry sees as their enemy) and rumors of how she behaves on set. Suffice to say it sounds like the high school-level gossip the industry is so good at but there's also the issue of Knox being brand new to the business and only 18 at that.

As usual, I'm glad my life at 18--or now, for that matter --wasn't made public, and that I didn't have a Twitter account to boot! "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

Yikes, biker, that's insane! I would've thought that the thermal expansion of the valve and the cylinder would make this impossibly once the engine heated up...but obviously I'm not an engineer.

Of course things like the comet-intercepting Rosetta or the Cassini-Huygens sound almost impossible from an engineering standpoint. Heck, even gas centrifuges practically sound like guesswork to me.

Cybertoad, you may also want to check out MPEG Streamclip, which is free.

I've only used it for Mac and I know you have Windows 7 so I can't testify to how different the versions are, but it does allow transcoding from a batch list of files, including WMVs, so it might be worth a shot. My only concern would be time; it transcodes other files rather quickly (beating Apple's own Compressor program considerably) but WMVs can be tricky.

Upgraded to Mavericks the other day, and I have to say it's a nice upgrade so far, and for free I certainly can't complain about the price (though the 5GB download took a little time).

A lot of aesthetic changes that are subtle but give enough of a "cleaner" look without losing functionality. But I like the change of labeling files (basically giving them a color, from a choice of six) to tags so you can now add a huge number of your own. Of course once I realized I might not want to keep tags like "girl-girl" and "fisting" on my computer I just kept them as comments. It has made my organizing easier and smoother, always helpful in my book.

Maybe those assholes just thought that boners weren't allowed in the Oval Office so their extramarital affairs were okay. Or it was just the oldest, flimsiest trick in the book with which to attack someone they didn't agree with.

It's my view that most of these moral accusers who are preaching about behavior the loudest are ultimately hiding the most skeletons in their closets. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

Oh, I can only imagine...but I don't like it when I do!

Family--well, immediate anyway--would probably be ranging from less than thrilled to an angry level of embarrassment. There are certainly plenty of other things about me that don't make loved ones particularly proud of me--but hey, unconditional love's a bitch! So they might understand that I'm not exactly Ned Flanders (though maybe this version, a little) when it comes to my surfing habits.

Friends, it depends on who. Those who've known me a long time know my general views on sex, masturbation, porn, and personal freedom and that I'm not one to restrict any of them. The exact details of my tastes may make a few shudder and probably even some women cry, but you know what they say about making an omelet...

Really the devil's in the details because of my hundreds of sorted posts here in the forum would make for some interesting and revealing reading. A sort of personal Starr Report for my more judgmental friends to impeach me with. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

I think he may be referring to a few banned members, though I remember them being disrespectful to everyone not just women in particular.

But other forums and sites are flooded with the Haterade® for women, and I'm not even talking porn related ones. Just YouTube and Yahoo! alone seem to be full of members who are so over the top pissed they sound as if they are Onion parodies--and I kinda wish they were. The porn forums can be occasionally downright scary, though I guess that's better than people going out to be the next Ted Bundy (who right before his execution blamed porn as a way to shift responsibility for his crimes).

If you were to the take the arguments of these misogynist assholes seriously you'd believe that men are being "oppressed" by feminists and somehow in danger of losing their civil rights in the names of women's equality. I say if you have that much paranoia concerning feminism or just women in general the problem may be you, not the women. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

These don't have quite the poetic grace of Mark Sanford's emails to his Argentinian adventuress--"you opened up a new chapter last week wherein I was happy and content just being"--but they sure are funny. And in truth, that line was from an email where he started off talking about the "tranquility" of operating a tractor in the morning, but it still sounds like the kind of gibberish that could get some ladies all wet in their "great love divide."

DVD titles are almost universally funny in my opinion, and I give Seymore Butts some credit for coming up with some silly ones in his time: "Poetic Just-Ass," "Ass Good Ass It Gets," "Romancing the Butthole."

And not to plug them, but for my juvenile tastes InTheCrack has always had some of the funniest descriptions and scene titles of a site: "Bloomin' Garden," "A Colonial Spread," "Trickle your Fancy."

Considering they have over 900 collections with at least a few scenes each it's a healthy amount of vulgarity and silliness, but I'll take it over Robert Frost any day!

Ah yes, female "hysteria."

Considering all the other bullshit miracle cures and snake oil remedies people were hawking around the same time female hysteria treatments sound relatively safe. And compared to the cocaine-laced sodas and radium-laced water and toothpastes of the time it practically does sound like medicine.

I'd even go so far as to say there are plenty of women today who could still benefit from "massaging" their hysterics away, at least if we could get over our puerile fear of discussing female sexuality. How something as innocent as acknowledging the female orgasm became so taboo is beyond me, but we Americans are a strange and paranoid people.

But now instead of hysterics and patent medicines we have a growing industry of bullshit and woo to relieve the more gullible of us our money and common sense: vitamin and "smart" waters, unproven herbal supplements, gluten-free junk food, "superfoods," and of course the cult of everything organic and "natural." There's a cure for whatever ails your disposable income!

And to the charlatans that naively ask "But what's the harm? I'm just trying to help people live better lives." I say then stop turning everything you do into a goddamn marketing scheme with a book or some other product attached for "the solution." Stop taking people's money while making wild, unscientific claims about what they're buying.

See my above, but I think the web has made these prudish laws obsolete as a lot of sites sell their toys as "novelty devices" only and ship to all 50 states. Even Walmart, yes that Walmart, sells the Hitachi Magic Wand for those who wish "to soothe an aching shoulder or want a more 'personal' massage experience"--talk about living better!

Apparently so, according to their aid and tuition page. It's a private school and the graph on the left looks like they offer aid up to students whose families make over $160k but education is insanely expensive. Hell, Duke claimed an endowment valued at 6 billion last year.

I'd like to think the tuition--whatever it is you end up paying after aid--actually goes to the faculty but I'm also aware that colleges can be top heavy in terms of salaries (some deans are paid in the low seven figures) and pricey sports programs to attract more customers...I mean students. And public schools can be just as guilty, this graphic about the highest paid state government employees includes a ton of coaches. Totally worth it. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

"Natural" and tattooed seem to be oxymoronic, LPee23, and sadly Bonnie is not even natural in terms of breasts (here's a page with both for comparison). She seems kind of polarizing because of the tattoos--you have to really love them because she has a ton, and they're not exactly subtle, but I guess spiderwebbed boobs rarely are.

She did do at least one early scene a couple years ago with Max Hardcore (post-prison) in the the elegantly titled Fuck Puppets 2, though I'm not sure if it's ever been released. Apparently they "did everything but fisting and anal," which sounds kind of restrained by Max's standards. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

That whole controversy--the student doing porn to pay tuition--made me angry because the knee-jerk reaction was the moral shock that a good, innocent college girl would degrade herself to perform in porn, rather than say that higher education now costs enough that porn is one of few practical options to completely pay for it.

And you didn't even have pay her for the privilege as the site did! Though I had no such luck with girls in high school, it's rare occurrences like this that probably keep me off of Facebook.

Yeah, like I said, only the first months...after that, nearly anyone and anywhere it seems. Porn is the melting pot of pussy (Mmm! ), and rarely involves just a single nationality.

I counted 44 ITC models out of a total of nearly 350, so about 12%, way short of cable regulation though it's a website. I wonder whose job it would be to count the broadcast material?

Don't worry, messmer, we're laughing with you, not at you.

The problem with porn is it's so heterogeneous when it comes to nationalities and geography. Even ITC was probably only "purely" Canadian in its first few months. And it still may be totally Canadian owned/operated but it's using American and Euro models in locations like Los Angeles and Jamaica.

If it has one positive, porn can be, at least for fans, a place to say "Eh, I don't care where she's from/what color she is, I just liked nekkid woman!" Of course it can also exacerbate some of the uglier racial stereotypes by centering genres and fetishes around them--the whole "interracial" category, for example, or the inherent lily-whiteness of a lot of sites.

Outside of porn, Hollywood has gotten quite a bit of use out of Canada. Think of all the successful Canadian comedians of the last few decades: John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey, etc. It also simultaneously benefits from shooting there, because of the numerous government incentives, shooting some 1500 productions between 1996 and 2006.

At least your country is honest about broadcasting porn on TV, if only to remind where it should be shot. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

"Your porn is not Canadian enough"

Since our top two posters are Canadian I can't believe other members haven't mentioned it first, but apparently porn channels on cable in Canada have to broadcast at least 35% Canadian content and be close-captioned (admittedly there's usually not much dialogue to caption)! Three channels were issued a reprimand a couple of weeks ago for failing said regulations. (I tried to look up the specific regulations myself but I couldn't stop laughing.)

I usually frown upon nationalism and patriotism but in the case of porn I like to keep it close to home, so no reason to send the tits and ass, I mean jobs, overseas! At the moment I can only think of one site that is Canadian, the orifice-obsessed InTheCrack, which has its record of compliance address in Alberta, Calgary. Though for all I know much of its content could be shot in space it's so closeup. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

I'll give Bay credit for getting the gist of the event right, if not the details. (But no credit to Ben Affleck. Fuck Affleck! )

And while some older films have a little more context in their portrayals of historical events they can frequently be slow at points and heavily biased. Tora! Tora! Tora!, the 1970 film about Pearl Harbor is decent but at some points gets practically glacial. As if there used to be some unwritten rule that big budget war epics must have a character realize the gravity of the situation by staring silently into space until the entire audience is asleep.

The Longest Day (about D-Day) and Patton are both guilty of this, along with a healthy dose of filmic patriotism. For the former it's any of the the scenes with John Wayne, though he's like that in almost all of his films, and for the latter it's Patton's opening monologue. But despite their considerable flaws I think they could at least make viewers aware of the general historical events and maybe even get them interested enough to study on their own.

I guess you can never truly have it both ways, at least not that I have ever really seen. Patton, for example, has major technical errors regarding equipment and some of Patton's characteristics (the voice is supposed to be the biggest inaccuracy). But something like Saving Private Ryan, while being somewhat more technically accurate with equipment literally opens with a flag waving in the wind (even before the invasion scene). It felt almost like a cheesy recruiting ad. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual.

Damn, graymane, if it's any consolation at all I sincerely hope you get better. If it's not, at least know us regulars are thinking of you more than your doctors apparently are.

I know I'm the perpetual raging cynic around here at PU (in competition with RagingBuddhist, of course), but medical stories from the U.S. always seem to get my blood boiling. I guess because people always sound as if they are more customers than patients, which in a way they are. But what do you expect when a country claims, with a straight face, that's it's morally okay to profit off of people's health? Do no harm, but first collect are charges!

And the first part of your post regarding your doctor having more interest in his staff than you sounds like an episode of Seinfeld where he starts to suspect his dentist is actually a perv.

A key paragraph in your link explains why Viagra and "female Viagra" wouldn't really be the same drug: "Viagra seemed to work best in women with sexual arousal problems who had previously satisfying sex lives. It was less effective in those who had both arousal problems and problems with sexual desire."

The issue with female sexual dysfunction is desire, not just arousal. It's kind of a fine point but a big part of the difficulty in finding an effective drug or treatment (i.e., not sleazy pickup lines or Axe body spray). My uneducated, rough guess would be this is linked to hormone levels which change over the course of a woman's cycle. Whereas men seem to be either on at 100% desire or off, but mostly on.

I second the unforgivable scientific errors and inaccuracies--even in sci-fi when they're just making shit up! Like how even in the first Terminator film it started messing with the "history" of the future by the Reese's actions in the present (okay, that's the entire plot...but I'm right, damn it!).

A lot of times it's making up rules/physics for a series and then just lazily throwing them out for some "new" discovery later on. The Star Trek films with the original cast (Motion Picture - Episodes VI) seemed to get pretty liberal with what the star ships were capable of, even if it was the same exact ship from the previous film.

Hell, after the Enterprise was self-destructed (uh, spoiler alert?) at the end of Ep. III, Kirk & co. were tried in absentia at the beginning of Ep. IV, using what was basically footage from the previous film as evidence, including wide shots of the ship. Couldn't they have just said "Uh, it was intentionally blown up and Kirk was captain and knew the countdown code"? Or "Hey, anybody notice how this guy's really hard on any ship that he gets near"?

Of course when we try and make a space movie set in the present we end up with Armageddon. Hmm, and like Argo that also stars Ben Affleck... "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?

No offense taken. Sometimes the truth hurts, a lot, and that in and of itself shouldn't be offensive, regardless how deeply held a particular myth is in one's heart.

Monument Men, whatever its other faults, sounds pretty mild compared to other recent cinematic retelling of history. The straight-up jingoism of Zero Dark Thirty and Argo (especially concerning Canada's role in the real event) are quite revealing about what passes for historical accuracy in Hollywood blockbusters. And the might-is-right philosophy of films like Black Hawk Down and Captain Phillips is so over the top that it's cringe worthy at some points.

So Hollywood is forever accused of being "liberal" by social conservatives, yet it continually spends big bucks portraying American foreign policy and its military--even the fuck ups--in a practically hagiographic light?

That's one of the small dislikes I have with VLC; it doesn't allow you to close a video window from full screen (QuickTime does), plus its autoplay function acts too unpredictably for my tastes. These two issues definitely slow me down when organizing anything with WMVs. It does have an insane wealth of preferences that I only understand a fraction of and have yet to see in any other video program (go to VLC < Preferences... < click the "Show All" button on the bottom left, if you're curious).

Actually through the Finder in Mac (their version of Windows Explorer) you can preview a file with the Quick Look feature. Just hit space bar, ⌘ + Y, or click the eye icon at the top, and you have basic controls too. You can trash a file with ⌘/command + delete (the larger delete key that is normally labeled "Backspace" on non-Mac keyboards). The Cover Flow view option also also allows previews, but with less control, and I find it a waste of window space when navigating through larger folders. I prefer icon view when normally navigating, and then list view when organizing/downsizing folders as it lets you easily compare file sizes.

I think the lack of a delete or trash function through VLC is because of a concern that you might easily lose too many files this way, rather than the somewhat more inconvenient process through the Finder. Though trashing a file doesn't actually delete it, it does take it one step closer to being deleted (minus copies on backup drives and through Time Machine, of course). I think the inconvenience of making it slightly harder to delete files is worth it over losing files in the process of more efficiently organizing a hard drive.

Though VLC is a decent all around video player with lots of controls (except deleting a file ) I prefer QuickTime 10 for MP4s for its simplicity. I don't care much for playlists and more windows than necessary, so a simple window of just the video itself is how I like to watch things. Either way Mac is not really the preferred OS for WMVs, though they can certainly reign in the massive video files now being offered by so many sites with little loss in quality.

My advice, jook, is patience and perseverance in organizing. If you want to keep what you actually like then it will take some time. And it may help to use Apple's labeling system to give files different colors in the Finder, which I find handy for differentiating content within a model's or site's folder, or just the gray color for files that need to be trashed or moved. Again, the list view helps to compare file size and weed out duplicates--unless you accidentally downloaded the same file in more than one resolution, then it'll get irritating.

AIDS and HIV are still the big killers, in regards to both career and life (though with enough medication, a person can live infected with AIDS for years before dying). Yes, other STDs can be lethal if left untreated but are far more manageable than HIV, a virus (no cure) that attacks the immune system (thus making people quite vulnerable to infections that would otherwise be survivable).

I've even heard in interviews--not BTS ones, mind you--that gonorrhea is sometimes treated as "the flu" where a performer won't work for a few weeks until treatment is finished, since it's apparently fairly common but not a career killer like AIDS/HIV. And though the blood tests performers get test for numerous STDs it's still AIDS scares that cause moratoriums.

Despite the California law, which like so many of its other feel-good laws is just pushing people to work around it, I think it's going to be treated like injuries have been in the NFL--covered up and denied by the business but ultimately accepted by fans. Yes, porn performers get tests and football players wear padding and helmets, but people still get sick and athletes wind up with fractures and frightening head injuries. And if we're being honest none of this should be surprising. Look at the increasing aggression and violence in both professional football and porn: people literally running into each other and purposely sharing bodily fluids.

People are bound to get hurt as a result of all of this. And I just don't see us going back anytime soon, laws and regulations be damned. "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it?
