A number of SuicideGirls, punk and gothic totty for the discriminating (if aging) gothic gentleman blogeur, have abandoned their positions. Ahem. They now feel exploited, apparently (hat tip to Porchboy).

A group of angry ex-models is bashing the SuicideGirls alt-porn empire, saying its embrace of the tattoo and nipple-ring set hides a world of exploitation and male domination.

Wired's article does not explore the reason semi-nude cheesecake photography including tattoos and nipple-piercings should be liberating one day and compromising the next. BoingBoing, sponsored by SuicideGirl ads, attempts to unravel some of the purported business concerning the FBI. AntiChris provides a list of grievances while UnPink offers a blog dedicated to recording "the jiggly fall of an alt porn icon". I am still uncertain quite what the difficulty is founded upon though contractual disputes, a reported hostile working environment and nebulous charges of "neocon" sympathies all figure prominently. Though in all seriousness, the site was hardly worth a look once Apnea left for Lithium Picnic so it is all a bit much of a muchness.

Alan, I would be shocked if the subject matter of this post did anything but bring a blush to your cheeks.

Flea, Darkling! How are you? As a matter of fact it's all gone down hill since I moved on, long before Apnea left. ;)

Is she called Apnea because she has trouble breathing through that itty bitty button nose? =)
