SEX WATCH: NY Times Porn Feature

We here at Mediaite understand one universal truth about all media strategies — sex sells. Every so often (read: every day) we notice how some of our friends across the Internet use sexy headlines and photos to drive traffic. And what better way to celebrate these recession-busting decisions than in a regular feature? Welcome to SEX WATCH! 

picture-41 HuffPo – “American Flag Bikini Moments: What’s YOUR Favorite? (PHOTOS)”

Arianna invites us to celebrate Independence Day with pubes and photos of pre-teen looking Mena Survari [sic]!

HuffPo – “Bar Refaeli Naked On A Bed (VIDEO)”

Art Not Porn: Black and white videos of Israeli model Bar Refaeli rolling around in bed are totally SFW.


picture-7 The New York Times – “Lights, Camera, Lots of Action. Forget the Script”

Yet another reminder that The Times does whatever it wants. Porn is shorter on the Internet?! What better time to put Savanna Samson’s plump, luscious lips on A1.




• Fox News – “Kate Winslet: The World Has Seen Enough of My Bum and My Boobspicture-8

Maybe a better headline would have been: We at Fox News Can’t Get Enough of Kate Winslet’s Bum and Boobs (SLIDESHOW!).

The Daily Beast – “The Sex Lives of Male Hookers”

Tracy Quan reminds us that TV is not like real life; namely, HBO’s Hung has nothing to do with what it’s actually like to be a sex worker. But never fear, if we can muscle our way through Quan’s 1,500+ word column we might have some idea. Tags include: Male Escorts, Hung, Prostitution, Paying For Sex, Male Prostitutes, Gay Escorts, Hookers, Gigolo, Sex, Gay.
