It only took more than a year longer than I’d originally announced(!), but my webcams are now finally, truly back, and better than ever! Check out the video above for all the relevant info—the full length, full resolution, fully nude version is on my web cam page. I am deeply sorry to my fans that I have been away for so long, but in addition to my webcams, we are planning on launching a major new project by the beginning of next year that should finally allow me to stay online permanently. Stay tuned, and in the mean time, enjoy my new and improved webcams! I greatly appreciate your incredibly loyal support and patience while you’ve awaited my long promised return—I only hope I can make it up to you.
I was originally intending to just put up a post when I actually did launch my new webcams, but I’ve been receiving so many emails recently asking if I’m still active that I thought I’d better do a post now! Anyway, I will be returning to my webcams soon, but they won’t be in the same form as before. I have recently been doing sex and relationships counselling in ‘real’ life, and it’s the most enjoyable and fulfilling work I’ve ever done—it’s very personally satisfying to be able to help people in such a direct manner, and my clients have all told me that I’ve helped them a lot. So it seems natural to do it on webcams as well, so I can help people all over the world.
So what is happening with all my (very!) long promised commercial products I hear you ask? Well, I keep reviewing (so delaying) my health and beauty book, as I keep expanding upon and improving my knowledge of the subject. I want it to be (as far as possible) definitively correct and well-supported, and I keep learning new things about this subject all the time, both from my own experience and outside research. So I’ve decided I have no choice other than to shelve it for now and re-prioritise my product launches. Hence, I am now intending to release a solo piano CD as my first commercial product, hopefully later this year.
I have a lot of emails from my fans from the last month or two to catch up on, so please bear with me while I get to all of them. In the mean time, you might want to check out what my webmaster and producer Lee has been working on for the last few months—the all new Asian Sirens. You’ll notice that it’s based on the same software as this site, but Lee has expanded upon it considerably to provide a kind of mini-Facebook, but centred on Asian women. I am also their first featured profile.
I’ve received a lot of messages recently asking what’s happening with me, so I thought I’d better give everyone a quick update. As I mentioned in my previous post, after being banned by YouTube—which certainly isn’t the first time I’ve been blocked by social networking sites—I felt I had no choice but to take a different tack to get my message out there. So as I also said in that post, I’ve decided to focus on bringing my commercial products to market, and that’s still what I’m doing.
Together with my manager, editor and producer Lee, we have also made the decision that we have to do everything ourselves. The obvious reason for this is so that our artistic vision isn’t compromised, but it’s also because publishing and distribution are clearly in a state of transition. We don’t want to be held back by obsolete publishing and distribution methods—we want to be at the forefront of the new, and we have some very exciting ideas on how we will do this.
The obvious downside of doing everything ourselves, however, is that it is slow, and we have to pay for everything out of our own pockets. So we aren’t just working hard to get our products finished—we’re also working hard to make enough money to bring them to market and promote them. So I’ve had to put aside all unnecessary distractions, which sadly include this blog, my sexy Bible readings, my main web site, and even my webcams. But once everything is done and we’re ready to promote them, I’ll certainly be back online!
I should stress, however, that all my sites will be kept online and fully supported for the whole time.
I still haven’t had time to do my post on the Australian election yet, as there’s so much I want to say on it, and I’ve become very busy with other things. And sadly, that isn’t the only thing I haven’t had time to do—there won’t be any sexy Bible reading this month, or for the immediate future. When you’ve been banned by all the major social networking sites as I have been, it is very difficult to get much traction on the internet these days; my videos are now only getting a tiny fraction of the views they got when my YouTube channel was publicly available. So as they aren’t reaching a very wide audience, I’ve made the difficult decision that it isn’t really worth my while to continue doing them until I can find a way for them to reach more people. And when you’ve been censored by all the major sites on the net, the only way I can see to achieve this is to become more famous outside the net.
Hence, I have decided to refocus my efforts on my book and music projects. This blog and my sexy Bible readings have in reality been a huge distraction from these projects, and have delayed them considerably. The thing is, I really wanted to keep engaging with my fans on the internet, as I really enjoy it, and you’ve been so incredibly supportive of me. I may not have the most fans of any model, but I think I have the best fans—I don’t think any other model’s blog can compare with the level of discourse here. But the fact of the matter is, if I can make my outside projects successful, it will eventually mean I will be able to devote much more time to my internet activities than I can now. But to get there, I have to wind them back for now.
I probably won’t be able to stop myself posting articles here every now and again, as there’s just so much I want to say about what’s going on in the world, and I will continue to respond to everyone’s comments. But my pace of posting will probably slow down; indeed, you’ve probably noticed that it already has to a degree. I have every intention of returning to my sexy Bible readings when the time is right—I basically just need to find a way for me to reach a wider audience. If by some miracle they suddenly become an internet hit for some reason (even without a public channel on YouTube), I will restart them as soon as possible. I still strongly believe that the approach I use in these videos is one of the most effective ways of dealing with this issue, and I really think I can make a significant impact if I can just reach a wide enough audience.

While I continue to work on my post on the Australian election, I thought I’d post this quickie. I’ve previously proposed a similar idea to this, and now the concept of a so-called “Robin Hood tax” is gaining traction. Of course, many of the people who would have to pay such a tax say it is “naïve” and “damaging”, but I really don’t think a tax as tiny as the one proposed (0.05%!) would have any significant impact on legitimate trading. It would however limit the sort of speculative trading that led us into the global financial crisis, and it would generate more than enough revenue to pay for the Wall Street bailout. And what fairer way to pay for it? The fact that we don’t actually have such a tax—and there isn’t any indication from our governments that it is even being considered—suggests to me that not much has really changed since the GFC, and that big business is still above the law.
Well it seems we’ve managed to avoid a Koran burning, but we still had Christians ripping pages out of the Koran at the White House to protest “the charade that Islam is a peaceful religion”—what a shame these hypocrites don’t give the outrageous violence and intolerance in their own Bible the same scrutiny. The huge controversy surrounding the so-called “Ground Zero mosque” (which will actually be two blocks away and will be more of a Muslim community centre than what most people think of as a mosque) has only been inflamed by this year’s anniversary of September 11, however.
My own views on this issue are expressed very well by the video above—opposing this mosque is tantamount to equating all Muslims with Islamic extremist terrorists, which is the same as equating all Christians with Christian extremist terrorists. As critical as I am of the extreme violence and intolerance written into the both the Koran and the Bible, it is not reflective of how most Muslims practice their religion, just as it isn’t reflective of how most Christians practice theirs. And while it may seem strange for an outspoken atheist to preach religious tolerance, the fact of the matter is, without freedom of religion, there wouldn’t be freedom of no religion. Freedom of religion is one of the key things that makes us better than the terrorists—to deny this only brings us down to their level. Read the rest of this entry »
Since YouTube suspended my original Sexy Bible Readings channel, we’ve been considering our options for re-posting them. We decided the safest thing to do was to upload streaming versions of the videos directly to this blog, as neither YouTube nor anybody else could censor them here. To do this, my webmaster Lee decided to upload them to an unlisted YouTube channel and download the YouTube video files, as their compression is very efficient and they use our preferred video format (H264 MPEG4). However, seeing as we had to create a new YouTube channel anyway, we figured we might as well save ourselves some bandwidth and try using it—given that the channel and videos aren’t publicly accessible or searchable on the YouTube web site, hopefully they won’t censor them again. And even if they do, we can immediately switch over to our locally hosted versions anyway.
Another advantage to having locally hosted copies is that the people who can’t access YouTube in their country can now view them right here—we will now be linking to the locally hosted version in each sexy Bible reading post. Also, as it is now nearly a month since we tried to post my last Bible reading, we’re also posting my latest reading—click on the link to view the locally hosted version. And as always, there’s an extended, super high quality fully nude version for my web site members.
Possibly my favourite article on this blog so far is the Religion and Morality post. I was originally intending to conclude that article with some statistics on how atheists and theists compare on the sorts of issues people normally use to judge morality, but as the article was very lengthy already, I thought I should save it for another post. So here it is.
Before theists trot out their usual arguments that the greatest mass murderers in history were atheists—or that the communism is an example of how atheism leads to unhealthy societies—please read my Religion and Morality article, which covers these misconceptions thoroughly. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, check out the results of Vision of Humanity’s Global Peace Index. As is graphically represented in this Epiphenom article, the most atheist countries are the most peaceful—and the most religious countries are the most violent. These results may not mean religion makes people more violent though—it could mean violence makes people more religious. So to make these comparisons as meaningful as possible, we have to eliminate socio-economic factors as much as possible. Hence, it is most instructive to compare the US—which is by far the most religious western country—with other western countries. As can be seen when we do this, the US rates alongside such countries as China, and is behind (often well behind) other western countries. Read the rest of this entry »
While I ponder what to do about YouTube censoring all my sexy Bible reading videos, I thought you might enjoy some comic relief. As ever, DarkMatter2525 has posted some great videos since I last featured him, such as the one above, which I think is a truly brilliant illustration of the absurdity and immorality of the central concept of Christianity (Jesus dying for our sins). I also love its absolutely hilarious sequel, Everyone’s a Sinner—I’m sure I’ve provoked this kind of sin many times in my life!
I also recently discovered a great new video series, Messed-Up Bible Stories, which are some of the funniest Bible satires I’ve seen yet, and demonstrate the absurdity and cruelty of the Bible superbly.
As today is my birthday, I thought I should post my latest Bible reading, as the members’ version features me playing a brand new piano piece—in only my birthday suit! I am currently working on several piano pieces for… well, hopefully you will see soon enough! Oh, and if you would like to send me a birthday present, check out my Amazon wish list.
UPDATE: YouTube has decided to wish me a happy birthday by suspending my YouTube account, even though my videos did not breach their guidelines at all (this is similar to what they did to my Blasphemy Challenge video). This is totally outrageous censorship of atheists’ right to free speech!
I’ve now updated this post as well as the other sexy Bible reading posts to display the videos from my new, unlisted YouTube channel—together with links to locally hosted versions for all the people who can’t access YouTube, and to give us backups just in case YouTube censors my channel again.
