After a small hiatus, the Berry

bursts on the vine for you. She is back. Took time away to go to a sexuality conference in the ATL and to complete her move to the old-timey rose/hot coral nouveau boudoir.

Come up and see it some time, gents. I need the cheering up. Every time I go to a conference or a gathering of erotic minds in other cities, I long for the road, I long for like-minded friends left behind in other locales, for more consistent collaboration and exploration. So...I am a but melancholy and yet eager to bring fresh, sensually awakened energy to my new studio in downtown St. Petersburg. It's my home at least for now...this little gypsy moves slow to catch all the creamy, dreamy stuff in life.

Special deals for anyone who wants to help me create my road show and travel in an RV--bringing passion, peace and juju to friends across the country.

Candida Royalle has died of cancer at 64. Like me, she was

an art school girl who wandered into the adult industry. In her case, she became a pioneer as on of the first feminsit porn-makers--directing erotic films for women and for couples.

Want to come over--curl up, curl in, screen a Candida Royalle film with me? There will be popcorn and other buttery things.

Get more Bangz with the Berry

After finishing Mad Men and mainlining the 2nd seasons of Masters of Sex And seeing these images by erotic artists,

I really wanted bangs, for the first time in 25 years. So, I cut them myself in the bathroom. Note: a half blind girl can cut her own hair without worry if it is mostly curly and cowlicky

Ta-Da. (My ghost eye refuses to hide behind the new curtain.)

Intellectual Property and Sex Workers

Sex work is an umbrella term that includes a wide variety of jobs in and around the sex industry. Though prostitution is one such job, most jobs that are considered “sex work” are completely legal such as exotic dancers, phone sex operators, adult film stars, etc.
Many, if not most, of these jobs (and most sex workers) depend heavily on the Internet for their job. Whether it’s how they promote themselves or simply where they work, the Internet has become a key component of most sex workers lives.
In that regard, sex workers are like all other creatives that work online. They build websites, publish photos, write blog posts, upload videos and so forth, all things that are protected by copyright. They also, most likely, have a domain name and/or a trade/business name that is potentially protected by trademark.

Exactly what kinds of intellectual property are involved depends heavily on the specific case. For example, someone who does webcam shows likely has a website, marketing content, promotional images, promotional videos, videos that are for sale/download, all of which are copyright protected. Meanwhile, an exotic dancer may a very small online presence and be much more concerned about their name and its (potential) trademark protection.
Still, every sex worker is, to some degree, a content creator and an intellectual property rightsholder. However, when it comes time to enforce those rights they face obstacles that most other creators don’t.

This article is so validating...because I sit down at the computer and struggle with this every day. i am so glad I live and work in a time where this is getting discussed in an intelligent manner.  Read more here.
