Ms. Naughty Ten Year Blogaversary

oldblogscreenshotOn June 7, 2004, I wrote my first ever blog post at As you can see, it’s kind of boring (“Howdily doodily”) and mostly about how I was having trouble getting the script to work. My first blog didn’t use WordPress, mainly because it wasn’t really a happening thing in 2004. I instead used a free script provided by a porn resource site. This meant the first 18 months of my blog were fairly simple html. Here’s the original old index page with a list of all of my posts up until January 2006. After that I switched to a proper WordPress install.

So here I am in 2014. I don’t blog as much as I used to because I’m so busy running two paysites and editing my own films. Still, it’s quite a milestone. Over the past ten years, I’ve tracked the growth of porn for women online and off and discussed the various research and surveys that looked at women’s interest in porn. In 2006 I reported on the first ever Feminist Porn Awards. I’ve spent a lot of time discussing censorship, particularly proposed internet filters and I’ve also argued against anti-porn activists and religious types pushing the false idea that porn is addictive.  I’ve reviewed new movies, magazines, fiction and websites that appeal to women and talked to female porn directors, webmistresses and performers. And I’ve also put up a lot of hot photos and links to free porn.

Ideally I should be celebrating this milestone by revamping the whole Ms. Naughty site and trying to convince Google that I’m still relevant (they hates me!). Unfortunately I have an entire feature film to edit so that job is being shunted down the “to do” list. Still, I’ll do a little quiet celebrating in my usual way (guzzling chardonnay) and will generally walk around secure in the knowledge that I’m very old on the internet.
