They’re funding scholarships that will go to 400 undocumented students in the Bay Area. Zuckerberg took to Facebook to explain why:

“Hundreds of thousands of young immigrants are part of our communities and attend school legally in the United States. Many of them moved to America early in their lives and can’t remember living anywhere else. They want to remain in the country they love and be a part of America’s future. But without documentation, it’s often a struggle to get a college education, and they don’t have access to any kind of federal aid.”

Anti-immigrant activists reacted like this:

Seriously though, five million dollars?

This calls for a celebration, right? No so fast…

Some have questioned Zuckerberg’s motives for supporting immigration reform.

Zuckerberg You Have My Attention

Zuckerberg, who founded the non profit fwd.us to push for immigration reform, called it “one of the biggest civil rights issues of our time.” But it’s been pointed out that Zuckerberg probably isn’t doing it out of altruism – it’s because he’d like to hire more foreign workers at Facebook. Why?

Employees on work visas get paid less.

According to a report by Economic Policy Institute, “The principal reason that firms use H-1Bs to replace American workers is because H-1B nonimmigrant workers are much cheaper than locally recruited and hired U.S. workers.”

Zuckerberg’s fwd.us organization also has a subsidiary called Americans for a Conservative Direction.

In 2013, the organization was criticized for creating “xenophobic” radio ads calling current immigration policies a national security disaster. Here’s a taste:

Male: Our immigration system is a joke, and the whole world knows it.

Female: Our border is unsecure, our laws are unenforced. We don’t know who’s here, what they’re doing or even why.

Male: What we have now is a national security nightmare waiting to happen.

So what’s Zuckerberg’s deal?

Hey, maybe he wants to hire cheaper foreign workers AND DREAMers to get an education. Only he knows for sure.

So back to that $5 million.

Sounds like a lot, right? Until you realize…

 Zuck, aren’t you worth like $34 BILLION?

Sex Love Repeat

By Alessandra Torre

Written for women that need not one, but two men to keep them satisfied. Are they enough?

Excerpt: “You are mine,” he grunts out, pumping into me, the length and level of his arousal brutal. “Mine,” he swears, as he releases my mouth and turns me around, pushing me forward as he yanks my legs back, one hand hard on my back, the other gripping my ass. He doesn’t slow the movement, giving me full, hard thrusts, my breasts bouncing from the top of my dress, the mirror above the sink giving me a full view of my slutdom. Paul, in worn jeans, a white tee-shirt, light hair mussed, mouth open, intensity over his face. His reflection pulls at my hair, tilting my head back, and I find his eyes on mine in the mirror.

Because sexual stalemates do not have to endure, long-time married couple Cecila and Fernando embark on a sexual adventure to the Caribbean to reignite desire and satiate fantasies.

Excerpt: Celia burst into laughter, her bare breasts trembled, and in a final maternal gesture she put her hand between my legs, found me with her fingers, and gave me a circular caress, free now of all desire, a grateful, gentle caress, like the faithful licking of an animal.

Las Edades de Lulú

For those tied and bound by morality, Lulú takes you on an exploration of sexual freedom that teeters on perversion.

Excerpt: Me besó dos veces, en la cara interior del muslo izquierdo. Luego alargó la mano hacia la bandeja, cogió un bote de cristal de color miel, lo abrió y hundió dos dedos, el índice y el corazón de la mano derecha, en su interior. Era crema, una crema blanca, grasienta y perfumada. Rozó con sus dedos mis labios recién afeitados, depositando su contenido sobre la piel. Sentí un nuevo escalofrío, estaba helada. Entonces pensé que quedaba todavía mucho invierno y que los pelos tardarían en crecer. No iba a ser muy agradable. Mientras tanto, Pablo recopilaba tranquilamente todos los objetos que habían intervenido en la operación, devolviéndolos a la bandeja, que empujó a un lado. Después, también él se desplazó hacia mi derecha, desbloqueando el espejo que tenía delante. Mi sexo me pareció un montoncito de carne roja y abultada. A ambos lados de la grieta central, se extendían dos largos trazos blancos. La visión me recordó a Patricia, de bebé, cuando mamá le ponía bálsamo antes de cambiarle los pañales. Pablo me miraba y sonreía. –¿Te gustas? Estás preciosa… –¿No me la vas a extender? –No. Hazlo tú. Alargué la mano abierta, preguntándome qué sentiría después. Mis yemas tropezaron con la crema, que se había puesto blanda y tibia, y comenzaron a distribuirla arriba y abajo, moviéndose sobre la piel resbaladiza, lisa y desnuda, caliente, igual que las piernas en verano después de la cera, hasta hacer desaparecer por completo aquellas dos largas manchas blancas. Luego me resistí a abandonar. La tentación era demasiado fuerte, y dejé que mis dedos resbalaran hacia dentro, una vez, dos veces, sobre la carne hinchada y pegajosa. Pablo se acercó a mí, me metió un dedo con delicadeza, lo extrajo y lo llevo a mi boca.
