Crushable Quotable: ‘Real World’ Star Dustin Zito Confusingly Explains His Porn Career

Crushable Quotable: 'Real World' Star Dustin Zito Confusingly Explains His Porn Career

A few weeks ago, the housemates on this season of The Real World found out what the audience had known for some time: that cast member Dustin Zito had had a career in online porn before joining the show. The cast – including Dustin’s girlfriend Heather Marter – responded with emotions from betrayal to horror. However, Dustin tells Us Weekly that he doesn’t regret his past, where he was “gay for pay” on a show called Frat Pad and engaged in sex acts with other men. In my favorite part of the interview, he says that he engaged in “softcore” oral sex. What the hell is softcore oral sex? More »

‘The Real World’ Is Relevant Again: Dustin’s Porn Past Unleashes Wave of Sexual Stereotypes

'The Real World' Is Relevant Again: Dustin's Porn Past Unleashes Wave of Sexual Stereotypes

For its twenty-fifth season, The Real World returned to the place where I believe the series started to go astray – Las Vegas. But this cast proved more interesting than the original Las Vegas season’s motley crew – namely because one of them, Dustin Zito (pictured), was getting headlines before the season even aired. Dustin had worked in the porn industry, appearing on a show called Fratpad where young men engaged in sex acts with themselves and each other. Though many people in the audience were aware of Dustin’s history before the show aired, his fellow cast mates were not. More »

Would You Take Sex Advice from MTV's Teen Moms?

Tonight, MTV is airing a special called 10 Most Outrageous Sex Myths. The special features celebrities and MTV stars talking about and debunking sex myths like “You can’t get pregnant if a guy pulls out.” Since the special hasn’t aired yet, the jury is out on whether it’ll be a surprisingly-well-done episode like the Markai Durham abortion special or something horrible and ham-fisted like the Teen Mom 2 reunion.

9 Non-Porn Movies Featuring Real Sex

9 Non-Porn Movies Featuring Real Sex

Oh, Hollywood gossip; you are so very entertaining. And this is why we love books about you so very much.

Case in point: Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob, (and Sex) by former Paramount executive and Variety editor Peter Bart. Due out on May 3, Bart’s behind-the-scenes book posits that the sex scene between actors Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in the 1973 film Don’t Look Now was, in fact, utterly unsimulated. Sutherland denies the claim, but it’s a fascinating possibility nonetheless. It might surprise you, however, how many mainstream films there are out there that feature actual sex; here, we’ve assembled for your consideration nine of the best: More »

Video: ‘Secret Life of the American Teenager’ Is Obsessed with Sex

Video: 'Secret Life of the American Teenager' Is Obsessed with Sex

Secret Life of the American Teenager is a weird show. They have old-fashioned, almost Puritanical beliefs about sex (one character thinks her dad died as a punishment for her losing her virginity), and yet the characters on the show talk about it almost to the point of obsession. Considering that Secret Life is also the brainchild of Brenda Hampton, this isn’t surprising. As the creator and producer of 7th Heaven, Hampton had her characters constantly prying into each others’ sex lives and being judgmental about it – considering the pilot episode of that show had Jessica Biel‘s character ask Barry Watson‘s character (those characters were siblings, btw) to kiss her, I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Crushable Quotable: Angelina Pivarnick Says The Situation Is Gay, I Say She's Bitter

Jersey Shore castoff Angelina Pivarnick hasn’t gotten much press since leaving the show for the second time, so she’s relying on talking shit about other cast members in order to stay relevant. This time, the subject of her ire is The Situation, whom Angelina knew before going on the show (they’re both from Staten Island and dated before becoming Seaside Heights housemates). She told Popeater, “I think Mike is gay. I think he’s gay because of the way he talks and the way he abuses girls. He talks down to women.” More »

Crushable Quote of the Day: James Franco Would Tell You If He Was Gay, Okay?

Crushable Quote of the Day: James Franco Would Tell You If He Was Gay, Okay?

James “What the hell am I doing?” Franco is on the cover of the latest issue of the Advocate. You know, because the Howl star is the Andy Kaufman of sexuality, with his mischievous brand of livable performance art. But he’s not gay, and that girlfriend of 5 years that he’s suddenly mentioning in every interview knows it! Don’t believe him? Well you should. After all, James promises that he’d let you know if he was switch-hitting for the other team…unless he wouldn’t. More »
