Must Read: No such thing as porn 'addiction,' researchers say | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Journalists and psychologists are quick to describe someone as being a porn "addict," yet there's no strong scientific research that shows such addictions actually exists. So says a clinical psychologist in practice in a large behavioral health program.

Sex education after age old tradition of bael bihe | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

According to the Newar tradition, young girls are married to Bael, which is the symbol of Subarna Kumar. The fruit is considered to be without any flaw and if a young girl gets married to it before her menstruation starts, she will never be considered a divorcee or a widow according to the religion.

 

...After the ceremony is completed, the young girls are kept in a dark room for 12 days and taught sex education.

Sex ed book in Hebrew for Israel's haredim

Sex ed book in Hebrew for Israel's haredim | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

A how-to book translated into Hebrew aims to teach Israel's Orthodox Jews about sex, targeting an audience typically mum on the steamy subject.

 

The book, "The Newlywed's Guide to Physical Intimacy," was published in English more than a year ago in the United States. The Hebrew version is set to come out this month, meant for Israel's Orthodox Jews, who make up about a quarter of the country's population. It appears be the first of its kind.

 

Under Orthodox Judaism, intercourse is permissible only after marriage and public displays of sexuality are taboo. Many Orthodox Jews do not even touch members of the opposite sex except their spouses and children. But sex is not considered shameful, and procreation is seen as a "mitzvah," or commandment from God. For this reason, large families are commonplace in Orthodox communities. Yet for many young newlyweds, romance and intimacy are mysteries.

Abstinence-Only Sex Education: A Caution

Abstinence-Only Sex Education: A Caution | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

 

The Right and the Wrong Way


Now according to the article I’ve referenced, my reasoning has been defective. There is, after all, a right and a wrong way to impart the values that lead people to want to restrict sexual intercourse to marriage. The right way is to explain how our Creator has designed us, including the nuptial meaning of our bodies; to emphasize the intrinsic relationship between authentic marital love and the deep commitment of lifelong fidelity; to explore the spiritual dimensions of the marital act, including God’s participation in the procreation of a child; to teach about the ends of marriage and the importance of each marital act being open to both life and love; to examine the very real virtues of chastity and purity; and only then, finally, to discuss the deleterious personal and social consequences of failing to live according to this positive and precious vision of our sexual powers—and of what it really means to be human.

 

And the wrong way, as Calah Alexander so deftly demonstrates, is to tell girls that nobody likes dirty, soiled, second-hand women. So if they don’t want to be dirty, soiled and second-hand, they had better abstain. And if they don’t abstain, they are doomed to being dirty, soiled hand-me-downs whose worth has already been used up. According to Alexander, this is the road taken by many, if not all, abstinence-only programs.

The Gay Sex Club Next to the Vatican Is the Saddest Place on Earth | VICE United States

The Gay Sex Club Next to the Vatican Is the Saddest Place on Earth | VICE United States | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Last month, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica discovered that the Vatican had paid $35 million for an apartment block housing the Europa Multiclub, which calls itself the “number-one gay sauna in Italy.” The media used the story as another example of the Catholic Church being so obviously gay that they should just come on out and admit it. As a former Catholic schoolboy who believed in God till I saw Hugh Jackman in The Boy from Oz, a Broadway musical about Liza Minnelli’s first gay husband, I wasn’t surprised. I remember my school’s baseball coach sexually assaulting students and my first-grade teaching assistant nearly losing her job after she had an alleged lesbian make-out session with a PE coach—Catholics and shady sex shenanigans go together like red wine and wafers.

 

Naturally, when I visited Rome recently, the Multiclub was on my sightseeing list,

Dear Conservative Christian Leaders: Why Are You Silent About Rape?

Dear Conservative Christian Leaders: Why Are You Silent About Rape? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The problem does not seem to be that you feel shy or squeamish talking about sex. You have talked in exhausting depth about a long list of what you see as America’s sexual sins—everything from pornography to gay marriage. You have written entire series of books telling women how to be pure and other books, such as Every Man’s Battle, instructing men on how to keep themselves from lustful thoughts. And on the other side of the equation, there are countless Christian sex manuals that tell married couples in very explicit detail how to have a mutually satisfying sex life.

Yet, in the thousands of church services that I have attended, in the countless hours of Christian radio I have listened to, and in the hundreds of books I have read by Christian authors, not a single one has exhorted the faithful not to rape. I conducted dozens of Google and Yahoo searches and was unable to find a single instance in which a conservative Christian leader has advocated publicly for consent in sexual interactions.
