Who's Afraid of Black Sexuality?

Who's Afraid of Black Sexuality? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Well, for a long time, lots of people. Including scholars. Particularly black scholars.

If sex was once difficult to discuss openly, black sex was especially fraught. It touched on too many taboos: stereotypes and caricatures of "black Hottentots" with freakish feminine proportions; of asexual mammies or lascivious Jezebels; of hypersexual black men lusting after white women. It brought up painful memories of white control over black bodies during slavery; of rape and lynching; of Emmett Till, a teenager tortured and murdered in 1955 for supposedly flirting with a white woman

Because agency to enjoy one’s own body isn’t a crime.

"Because hypersexuality isn’t a compliment, nor is it liberating. It’s a racialized, oppressive marking on black and brown bodies that’s been used to degrade us for centuries and I think it’s time we took our bodies back."

 

 

Curator comment:  This beautifully powerful rant has been re-posted dozens of times in the last few days. One of the many benefits of maintaining the broadest possible view of this topic is the ability to gain appreciation of the many complex social, religious and political perspectives that shape identity, including this expression of Arabo-Muslim anti-imperialist feminism.

Female Sex Tourism

Female Sex Tourism | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Sex tourism, with female tourists.  Does anyone recognize it?  I recently watched “Heading South,” which might be considered romantic by some, soft-core porn by others and social criticism by the most sophisticated.  It is based on three short stories by Dany Laferriere, a Haitian who now lives in Canada.  The plots entangle three white women, a Wellesley professor of French literature; a conventional but needy wife from Savannah, Georgia; and a factory worker from Quebec.  They are sexually taking advantage of the poverty and youth of black boys in Haiti in 1970.  Living in a resort hotel where the boys are not welcome, the women swim and screw with them on the beach.  The women have no sense of consequences or context, either about the boys’ families or politically.  Their best impulse is to take these older teens home like puppies found while on vacation, which they are sure the boys will welcome.  They forget all about the American reaction to “miscegenation” or the boys’ ability to manage their lives in a foreign country.
