    Female dominance refers to BDSM relationships and BDSM scenes in which the dominant partner is female. Actual upskirt or downblouse shots may violate privacy laws in some countries. Hamedori is a genre of Japanese pornography in which a male adult video actor or director serves as the camera operator. Snuff pornography involves the actual death of any of the participants, consenting or otherwise, simulated death is not considered snuff. Rape pornography features performers simulating rape. Normal quantities of ejaculate range from 1.5 to 5.0 milliliters . Softcore gay pornography also exists; it at one time constituted the genre, and may be produced as beefcake pornography for heterosexual female and homosexual male consumption. Commercialized pornography accounts for a nearly US$100 billion worldwide industry for the production of various media and associated products and services. In addition to mainstream pornography, the popularity of facials has led to creation of its own niche market, like video series that specialize in showing the act. The concept of lesbian, to differentiate women with a shared sexual orientation, is a 20th-century construct. Another variant of reality pornography consists of normal couples that are filmed by professionals, in which case the only obvious distinction from amateur pornography is the higher quality of production, filming and editing. The name is a reference to gonzo journalism, in which the reporter lesbian milfs is part of the event taking place. Generally, interest differs between people, and gender depends on sexual orientation. Because the viewing of such films carried a social stigma, they were viewed at brothels, adult movie theaters, stag parties, at home, in private clubs and also at night cinemas. BDSM actions can often take place during a specific period of time agreed to by both parties, referred to as play, a scene or a session. In general, BDSM play is usually structured such that it is possible for the consenting partner to withdraw his or her consent during a scene; for example, by using a safeword that was agreed on in advance.

Pleasure Time Fun 'N The Sun Digging Venice: The Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World

Digging Venice: The Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World

Print PDF
An abundance of fossilized sharks’ teeth wash ashore at Venice’s sandy beaches each year. Known as the “Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World,” Venice attracts fossil collectors like resident Terry Raymond who got hooked on the hobby in the late ‘70s.

As a seasonal resident between 1979 and 1992, Terry logged hundreds of miles on his daily beach walks as he searched for the sharp, pointed triangular-shaped sharks’ teeth that vary in color from brown to black to gray. Terry became enamored with collecting the fossils after a friend introduced him to the hobby while visiting undeveloped Caspersen Beach.


How Do You Find Sharks’ Teeth?

“You can find sharks’ teeth just by walking along the beach and scanning the sand,” reveals Terry. “No tools are required, although you will see many people with what is referred to as ‘the Venice snow shovel,’ which is a scoop with a screened basket and handle to dig down into the curl of the wave.”

“The best time to arrive at the beach to begin your sharks’ teeth search,” reveals Terry, “is at sunrise. Other optimal times are at an extreme or ‘dead’ low tide, during a full moon, or at the start of an incoming tide, and for two hours afterward. Fossil hunting is also good for a few days after a big storm affects the area.” The wind direction impacts fossil hunting, too. He adds, “When the wind is coming from a strong easterly direction, the wave action pushes shells and sharks’ teeth onto the beach. On the other hand, a strong northerly wind will hinder the hunt because it buries everything.”

“Venice has so many fossilized sharks’ teeth,” explains Terry, “because an ancient reef lies off the Venice coastline. The reef has acted as a sieve collecting sharks’ teeth over millions of years, so as the remains of the reef erodes, the teeth are freed to wash up onto our shoreline.” Terry goes on to explain, “One single shark produces 20,000 to 25,000 teeth during its lifetime. At any one time, a shark can have 24 top teeth and 22 teeth on the bottom, that’s 46 teeth in one row. Multiply that by several rows of teeth and you can have more than 250 teeth in a shark’s mouth at one time.” Sharks of all species are known to shed their teeth and grow new ones during their entire life, producing an abundance of teeth left to be fossilized.

Over the years, Terry has continued to add to his impressive collection of both fossil sharks’ teeth, fossil shells, as well as many other astounding discoveries. Since becoming a permanent resident in 1992, Terry has joined clubs and societies such as the Southwest Florida Fossil Club and the Florida Paleontological Society. “These clubs encourage visitors, have guest speakers, and conduct field trips to mines, pits and construction sites that ordinarily would not be open to the public.” Many of Terry’s more exciting, larger finds have occurred on such digs.

To find out more about sharks’ teeth, visit the annual Venice Shark’s Tooth Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 17 through 19, 2009, at the Venice Airport where vendors show and sell their fossil finds and sharks’ teeth.
