I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that “twincest” is a neologism you don’t need to impart into your regular vocabulary, but it is raised in a recent Salon article on Milo and Elijah Peters, 19-year-old Czech twins who have caused a stir in the gay porn community.  The twins reportedly first showed up on the website of Bratislava-based porn distributor Bel Ami in the summer of 2009 in group videos, not touching.  Over a period of months, they progressed to mutual handjobs within a group scenario, then blowjobs, then oral sex, and finally (and hugely publicized), anal intercourse.

Thomas Rogers explains:

While the concept of twin performers is not new to the gay porn world, the Peters twins are notable both because of the extent of their popularity and the things they are willing to do with each other on camera. They French kiss; they perform oral sex on each other; they have anal sex; and most shockingly of all, they do it in a tender and romantic way.

“My brother is my boyfriend, and I am his boyfriend,” says one of the twins during a phone call from Prague (Elijah and Milo sound so much alike on the phone it is impossible to tell which one is speaking). “He is my lifeblood, and he is my only love.”

The twins’ astonishing lack of shame — and their willingness to do anything with each other on camera — has helped turn them into a gay porn phenomenon. Since they first began appearing on Czech porn studio Bel Ami’s website (NSFW, like all links in this story) in 2009, the company’s traffic has doubled to 1.5 million users per month, and Milo and Elijah have become the subject of breathless coverage on adult blogging sites like Fleshbot and The Sword. They’ve even been flown from Prague to the United States for a whirlwind tour of Florida gay nightspots. But their surprising popularity raises some disturbing questions: Who are these twins? What keeps so many people watching them? And what, exactly, are viewers getting off on?

Rogers doesn’t quite answer all these worthy questions in the article, but they are certainly worth a ponder.  First, the boys themselves:  they’re cute and twinky, no doubt about it, and either one of them on their own could likely make a small splash, but in combination?  Titillation dynamite.  They even have a YouTube channel to give their fans access to their lives (the video below, in which they talk about their upcoming trip to Florida, is SFW): (more…)

Saturday night, at about 8 p.m. Angelina Jolie gave birth to twins, a boy named Knox Leon and a girl named Vivienne Marcheline (named after Angelina’s mother, who died early last year).

The number of Jolie-Pitt children is now up to 6, as Knox and Vivienne now join brothers Pax and Maddox and sisters Zahara and Shiloh.

The pictures of the new babies should sell for millions, with the amount received expected to go to charity, as they were when Shiloh was born.

I really like both Angelina and Brad. In spite of the rumors and gossip as to how they ended up together, I have always admired them both. Angelina and her charity work are something that we might complain about: “Oh, there’s St. Angelina again!” but how many times do we rip apart celebrities for being self-involved assholes?

They seem to be utterly happy together and with their children. They spend their free time running around the world, helping the less fortunate and bringing attention to issues people watching them on Access Hollywood might never think about. And realizing the absurdity that a picture of their child will fetch millions, they turn it into a positive thing for the issues they care about. And who can hate on that?
