I’m so excited to announce this year’s holiday card. Here’s a teeny tiny preview:Designed by Lesser Gods Art — follow on Instagram and Facebook — the image is a striking and sultry adaptation inspired by Allan Amato’s Seraph photography and incorporating some of my favorite things like protea, grapefruit, and a little kink! The cards are a way I send gifts and gratitude at the end of each year, while fundraising for various causes.
The largest collection of essays written by adult film industry professionals, Coming Out Like a Porn Star turns the focus on topics of pornography, protection, and privacy when it comes to discrimination and stigma, disclosure and acceptance. This one-of-a-kind book shares intimate personal stories of porn performers "coming out" to family, friends, partners, lovers, and community.
Includes the essay "'Ethical Porn' Starts When We Pay For It" by Jiz Lee. Violating consent isn’t limited to sexual relationships so our discussions around consent shouldn’t be, either. The multi-layered power disparities of the world require a response sensitive to a wide range of lived experiences. In Ask, Kitty Stryker assembles a retinue of writers, journalists, and activists to examine how a cultural politic centered on consent can empower us beyond the bedroom.
At the end of each year, I do a holiday card fundraiser - a chance to raise money, collaborate with rad visual artists, and send gratitude to those who have supported me and who help make the world a better place. There are 5 ways to get one: (thread) https://t.co/5HqE7Xb0O0
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
