Google says: Sexy Witches Are BAD!

As a review of past entries here will show, Drake and I share a love of vintage erotica.

The internet is full of repositories of imagery and prose from other times and the discovery of such sites is always an occasion of joy.

One of the  finest such sites is the Sexy Witch blog, which delights in exactly what its name would lead one to believe, imagery that celebrates the sexuality of witches as they have been portrayed throughout the last hundred or so years in books, movies, advertisements, and more esoteric places that might feature saucier depictions from hot websites called fuckedgay. Today we aren’t going into those waters though. But the sweet innocence of most of the content of the Sexy Witch blog speaks for itself and even the occasional full frontal enchantress is tasteful and restrained.

Anyone with even a casual interest in the way our Wiccan sisters have been pleasantly exploited should visit the site and enjoy its contents.

But now, if you click on the link I provided above, you get a

warning page from the good souls at Google who – thanks to some blue nosed internet vigilante – have chosen to classify the blog as potentially objectionable, presumably because it has bare breasts scattered among the fanciful ladies of Hecate’s clan.

Increasingly Google is becoming the Walmart of the internet – an inescapable and ruthless arbiter of puritanical morality. As documented by Eros Blog and many other observers, Google is introducing more sneaky, restrictive manipulation in their search engine, blog space, and image and video searches all the time, all in the service of the most dubious and inane brand of decency.

It’s enough to make you wish someone would put a hex on them!
