Sex toys and other adult products review platform Bedbible has recently published an open position ad where it stated that it is looking to pay one lucky applicant $20 (£15) an hour to watch “online pornographic videos” and “gather data points” on topics like sex positions, duration, number of orgasms, male versus female ratio, hair colour distribution and even language distribution. This research is part of Bedbible’s mission to produce an “in-depth report about tendencies/statistics in porn videos.”

Whoever is seen as most qualified for the position—which, by the way, is aptly titled ‘Head of Porn Research’ by the website—will be paid around $3,205 (£2,468) per month. Bedbible will also keep in contact daily and weekly with the new porn connoisseur. For those of you who are already thinking of hustling it and working two jobs at the same time (one by day, and one mostly by night) you’ll be pleased to hear that the role is “100% remote.”

For the ones who, unfortunately, are already back in the office, we’re sorry to say that it might be trickier to balance such a demanding double life. But hey, never say never. A February 2022 survey conducted by Totality Services has revealed that five per cent of the UK’s population admitted to watching porn on a work device.

Of those who admitted to doing so, around one third said they watched it for two to four hours of their workday, while a somewhat unfathomable 20 per cent said they watched adult content for between four and eight hours a day. We’re not ones to judge, but come on, eight hours a day?

Anyway, back to your dream job. Applicants need to be over 21 of age—duh—and will have to provide Bedbible with a handful of details, such as their name, email address, current employment status, as well as why they applied in the first place and why they should be picked. Sounds pretty simple, right?

Speaking to LADBible, Edwina Caito, Head Content Creator at Bedbible, said, “Pornography is a billion-pound industry around the world, so we came up with the idea of learning more through real-life examples. We chose to explore the most common sex positions in the top 100 most viewed videos to create a fair representation of people’s porn preferences.”

“We’re sure we’ll learn some interesting statistics from our research such as what types of roleplay the actors have, number of orgasms, and any fetishes covered,” Caito added.

Just to give you an idea of how popular the role seems to be, as of now, more than 31,000 people have applied for the position. But don’t lose hope so soon—after all, the only thing asked of you is to fill this short form. Better try your luck!

Meet the ‘Vladimir Put-in’, a talking butt plug on a mission to raise funds for Ukraine

Disclaimer: The aim of this NFT protest is not to condone the war and make light of the situation happening in Ukraine. Rather, it seeks to spread a message of defiance against oppression and raise financial aid for those in need during these dark times.

In the early hours of Thursday 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladmir Putin announced a “special military operation” into Ukraine. At the time, he claimed that the Russian military planned to “demilitarise and denazify” the country of about 40 million to (apparently) safeguard people subjected to bullying and genocide. What a load of crap.

Enter the ‘Vladimir Put-in’, a limited edition talking butt plug—yes, you read that right—inspired by none other than the “shit-talking” Russian President himself. Designed specifically for his rectum and his rectum only, the Vladimir Put-in consists of a non-fungible token (NFT) butt plug, currently being auctioned on the community-owned marketplace Rarible, along with a physical model made of silicone.

Launched on 4 March, the Vladimir Put-in is open for bids on Rarible until Monday 14 March 2022. The winner of the auction will not only receive the bespoke NFT but also get their hands on the 10-centimetre-long (since the man behind its inspiration is easily butthurt) 3D printed talking anal plug—delivered in five to eight weeks from the final payment. With the aim of generating funds to help people on the ground in Ukraine, the totality of the proceeds is set to be donated to WithUkraine, a humanitarian support platform set up by the Embassy of Ukraine to the UK.

But the plan of action doesn’t end there. Alongside the release of the Vladimir Put-in, the creative trio behind the initiative, Chat Shit Get Banged, is planning to send a copy of the physical toy first class to the Russian Embassy. Say what?

“The whole situation [in Ukraine] is both devastating and heartbreaking for civilians in both countries,” the team, who chose to remain anonymous due to the risk of the initiative, told SCREENSHOT. “The loss of freedom, control and life is something no nation should ever have to experience.” Tired of powerful people “chatting so much utter shit via the media,” Chat Shit Get Banged ultimately aims to flip the narrative and give power back to the people. “We started this project not to make light of the situation but instead spread a message of defiance against oppression, as well as trying to raise financial aid to those who need it,” the team added.

While vocal butt plugs of divisive political and celebrity figureheads are its ‘raison d’être’, Chat Shit Get Banged has tapped NFTs as a medium of peaceful protest—given how the digital assets offer an exciting and interesting use of technology that allows anyone to be an artist. “At the same time, anyone can also bid for it and have the opportunity to own something very unique and special,” the trio said. “That community aspect felt right for this project, especially as we are creating a collectable item.”

When it comes to art—let alone butt plugs—based on political figures and current events, projects usually walk a tightrope between condoning the subject matter and supporting the cause with a mission. In the Vladimir Put-in’s case, however, the team admitted to witnessing positive responses from both countries, some of which the pro-bono project actively shares on Instagram.

“Each collection drop will have a charity aspect in some way, our main MO is to send financial help to those who are in need,” Chat Shit Get Banged continued, adding how a second generation of the Vladimir Put-in is set to drop after the current auction—but only as an NFT featuring different expressions and materials.

As Chat Shit Get Banged hopes to mint more digital assets of detested public figures in the future, one question remains: can we expect a butt plug based on the ‘Cheeto Jesus’ himself? “We are praying that a certain someone’s name that rhymes with ‘hump’ is stuck in the past,” the team mentioned. “But unfortunately, we can never say never! You can be sure to see more world leaders as well as others in the media that you’ve rolled your eyes at one too many times.”

And for those of you who are curious to know what the talking Vladimir Put-in plug would play out loud once inserted, here’s what the team had to say: “We’re going to keep this as a surprise for now but it will 100 per cent be his [Vladimir Putin’s] voice and we’ll be keeping it all light-hearted.”

Well, I guess you’ll have to find out what ‘Vladdy Daddy’ says when you stick it to the Russian leader by placing your bids here. In the case of the physical copy making its way to the Russian Embassy as we speak, know that—at the end of the day—nothing screams “fuck you” like a talking sex toy in your mailbox.
