julia-ann-2About Julia Ann:

Born in Los Angeles, the striking blonde began modeling at age 17, but when she saw a friend making a good living working at a strip club, the statuesque beauty took center stage.  She soon found herself hot oil wrestling with men at the club as well, earning great tips and lots of attention. Eventually she and her friend, fellow model Janine Lindemulder agreed to join the adult industry when veteran director Andrew Blake offered them roles in “Hidden Obsessions.” Her enthusiastic scenes and curvaceous body attracted fans and industry members alike, earning her exclusive contracts with top studios. In Playboy TV’s hay days, Julia Ann was named host of one of their most popular shows, “Naughty Amateur Home Videos.” It was there that she caught the eye of Wicked Pictures, and the leading feature studio offered her yet another exclusive contract. Under Wicked’s direction, Julia Ann performed in such movies as “Beautiful” which earned her the 2004 AVN Award for Best Actress. Her career didn’t stop there, in fact in continued to reveal success after success, including the prestigious AVN Award for Best MILF Performer three times, in 2010, 2011 and 2013. XBIZ gave her the same honor, MILF Performer of the Year in 2014.  XRCO handed Julia Ann four Awards, including MILF of the Year honors in 2009 and 2011, and NightMoves Awarded her Best MILF Performer (Fan’s Choice) in 2013.

New Squirt Study Reveals Most Students Cruise on Campus

A New Study by Squirt.org Shows Most Students Prefer Having Sex in Campus Bathrooms, Dorms & Libraries!

TORONTO – It’s back to school time at most colleges and universities and a new survey by gay hookup site Squirt.org shows more than half of gay and bi students are fantasizing about hooking up with their instructors and about a quarter of them are already doing it.

The study, which surveyed 1,558 Squirt.org members ages 18 to 25 in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the Netherlands and other countries, showed that 54 percent of those surveyed had fantasized about their professor or teaching assistant. Another 25 percent said they actually had hooked up with their instructor or T.A.

The fast times did not end there as 82 percent of students surveyed reported they enjoyed cruising for sex while 57 percent said they have hooked up on campus.

“With so many young, attractive people in one place, it’s not surprising so many of them are meeting and hooking up,” said Attila Szatmari, digital business director for Pink Triangle Press, Squirt.org’s parent company. “College is about learning, understanding others and having new experiences so it’s good to see so many of young people are taking advantage of the college experience.”

The study showed 79 percent of those surveyed said their preferred campus cruising spots were bathrooms, followed by dorms at 54 percent, parks at 42 percent, changing rooms with 40 percent and the library at 37 percent.

“While these students are meeting and hooking up on campus, many who are long out of school can visit Squirt.org for similar experiences,” Szatmari said. “It’s the go-to gay hookup site where men can meet other men for sex, fun and friendship with the stroke of a key.”

Visit www.Squirt.org to learn more about the study.

Squirt.org is a completely uncensored hookup/cruising site for gay, bi, and curious men who want to avoid the pitfalls of dating and get right to the sex. It is the premier gay site that provides men around the world a way to meet and hook up.

About Squirt.org:

Where men meet other men for sex, fun, and friendship – this is the foundation for Squirt.org, a website established in 1999 and operated by Pink Triangle Press. True to its tagline, “Hot ‘n horny hookups,” Squirt.org is a completely uncensored hookup/cruising site for gay, bi, and curious men who want to skip the pretense of dating and get right to the sex. Consisting entirely of user-generated content, the site is continually growing to provide men around the world a way to meet. Squirt.org is available on mobile, desktop, and tablet platforms through any web browser without the need of downloading any apps. All are welcome in the Squirt.org sex-positive community independent of weight, age, or race, which equates to a great chance at getting laid.

Millions to ‘go purple’ in unified stand against bullying on Spirit Day, 10/20

glaadReposted from GLAAD.org

New York – Today GLAAD, the world’s LGBTQ media advocacy organization, launched the official countdown to Spirit Day, largest and most visible campaign in the world working to advance acceptance of LGBTQ youth.

Spirit Day takes place on October 20th, and inspires millions around the world to wear purple or ‘go purple’ online in a united stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBTQ youth. Each year, Spirit Day draws the participation of celebrities, corporations, media outlets, sports leagues, schools, faith institutions, national landmarks, and individuals. Spirit Day is made possible by the generous support of its presenting partners Target and Wells Fargo, official partners, Dow, Google, NBA and WNBA, NFL, and WWE, and supporting partners, American Eagle Outfitters, Barilla, Chobani, Comcast NBCUniversal, Kellogg’s, Kirkland & Ellis, Toyota Financial Services, and ZipCar.

“Since its inception, Spirit Day has brought unparalleled attention to one of the most painful issues that disproportionately affects LGBTQ youth – bullying,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “Young people are our future, and it’s imperative that we empower them to be the leaders of tomorrow. With updated anti-bullying resources in multiple languages, Spirit Day 2016 is sure to reach more youth than ever with messages of acceptance and support.”

“LGBTQ youth deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential. To be comfortable with and proud of who they are. To be free to be exactly who they were born to be, “said Laysha Ward, Executive Vice President & Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, Target. “Target is excited to be a Spirit Day presenting partner, working with GLAAD to raise awareness around the issue of bullying in the LGBTQ youth community.”

“A child’s true potential should never be diminished by fear,” said John Lake, Wells Fargo’s LGBT segment leader. “We see Spirit Day as a powerful tool to raise awareness of the challenges faced by kids who identify as LGBTQ and to show our solidarity as an ally. We are committed to working alongside GLAAD to help combat bullying and protect LGBTQ youth – an effort that remains at the core of our decades-long commitment to the LGBTQ community.”

To celebrate the countdown to Spirit Day, GLAAD also released crucial anti-bullying resources for educators, parents, and students. GLAAD’s Anti-Bullying Resource Kit provides tools and information teachers the aide in keeping bullying out of the classroom and help both teachers and parents support LGBTQ youth. Additionally, GLAAD released the Spirit Day Kit, which helps people of all ages bring Spirit Day directly to their community, including schools and local media outlets.

Coinciding with National Bullying Prevention Month, Spirit Day began in 2010 after a high school student posted the idea to her Tumblr page following the suicide deaths of several LGBTQ and LGBTQ-perceived young people.

According to GLSEN’s most recent National School Climate Survey, 85% of LGBT students report they have been verbally harassed with 65% percent reporting that they have heard homophobic remarks frequently or often in school. GLSEN also reported that 30% of students missed at least one day of school in a given month because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable in their school environment.

Previous Spirit Day participants include The White House, The Empire State Building, Britney Spears, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Cher, Shaquille O’Neal, Good Morning America, The Today Show, The View, The Talk, The Tonight Show, the NBA, the NFL, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, WWE, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, the Las Vegas Strip, and more.
