For Brazil’s sex workers, a World Cup brothel boom turns to bust

For Brazil’s sex workers, a World Cup brothel boom turns to bust | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

In a country with conflicted attitudes about its sexy reputation, workers speculate that men spent too much money on tickets or the high cost of living...


“They think that because of Carnaval, bikinis and the tiny clothes we wear.” That’s what women are supposed to be like here, added Ms. Vasconcelos. “But then men say, ‘there are no good women any more, there are no women you can marry,’ ” because the sexy image women feel compelled to present is also considered tainted.


The sociologist Marlene Teixeira Rodrigues, an expert on gender and prostitution at the University of Brasilia, calls it the “daily hell” of Brazilian women. “You’re thought of as accessible – women in all social classes, races, and generations, in every way,” she said.

Crazy About Nudes & Driftwood

Crazy About Nudes & Driftwood | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

But already I had seen enough of these artistic nudes — enough to make me feel bored and possibly a little annoyed by them. And so by the time I saw the film, the “textures explanation” seemed to answer at least one unasked question.


However, time has now passed and I am no longer satisfied with that answer.

Woman sues Georgia city for requiring doctor’s prescription to buy a vibrator

Woman sues Georgia city for requiring doctor’s prescription to buy a vibrator | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Did you know that there are places in these here United States–land of the free and home of the brave–where it is actually illegal to purchase or sell vibrators or other sex toys? Like the entire state of Alabama and several municipalities elsewhere? And people still live there? I did, but I continue to be amazed. I understand this even less than I understand “dry counties.” What kind of sheer madness drives people to stand in opposition to orgasms?


One such place is Sandy Springs, Georgia, which prohibits the sale of vibrators without a doctor’s prescription. They are banned, except for “bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose.” For serious. Can you just imagine having to ask your doctor to write you a prescription for a Hitachi Magic Wand? I cannot.

Christopher Bowness's curator insight, February 28, 8:48 AM

Beyond the click bate headline I really like this insight into the subject of women and sex.

 

In my experience through mentoring I've seen more and more women in relationships being the ones taking the leading roles in their and their partners sex lives. I find it interesting in a society which often lays the sexual dominance in relationships with men. I've met many women who are unsatisfied with their sex lives and how their male partners have lesser sex drives than themselves.

 

Of course I acknowledge that my experience and insight is in a certain area and a microcosm of what's happening in society but it is interesting nonetheless.

 

"The older I get, the hornier I get. People ask me why I date younger men, and it’s very straightforward: I like having sex. I like having a lot of sex. I’m all about lots of stamina and short recovery periods, which men my own age, sadly, are not going to deliver. And in a context in which I’m focused on my work and my ventures, I’m not looking for a relationship. I don’t feel I’m necessarily a relationship person, to be perfectly frank. I don’t think I’m a monogamous person." - Cindy Gallop (makelovenotporn)

5 Ways Our Society Unfairly Punishes Women For Their Sexuality

5 Ways Our Society Unfairly Punishes Women For Their Sexuality | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

In the United States, women’s bodies are constantly sexualized and objectified. Ironically, however, the women in control of those bodies are expected to refrain from actually using them to express any kind of sexuality. That’s largely because “purity culture” — essentially, the assumption that women need to remain chaste, and present an image of modesty to the outside world — is deeply ingrained in American society. The worldview is instilled in many American kids beginning at a young age through abstinence-only education, and constantly reinforced as women move through the adult world, too.

This approach to female sexuality has far-reaching consequences. Indeed, even though proponents of abstinence until marriage claim it’s a directive that applies equally to both genders, purity culture has an outsized impact on women. Here are five examples of that unfair dynamic

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

An antipornography campaign in China has netted many young female writers of danmei, erotic fiction focusing on relationships between gay men, a popular outlet for those seeking to escape stifling social identities, scholars say.


...Danmei is part of an ‘‘ongoing sexual revolution’’ with feminist characteristics in China, perhaps the country’s first, said a Chinese academic who requested anonymity. China is currently undergoing a crackdown on pornography that has netted danmei writers and website managers, and closed some sites, sexual rights advocates said. ‘‘The campaign is really having an impact,’’ the researcher said.



Creating and consuming danmei is a way for women to explore their long-repressed sexuality, said Ms. Jacobs.



‘‘I think Chinese culture is still harsh on women in terms of how far they can go in developing a fantasy life or erotic art forms,’’ she said. ‘‘I think they have to be very careful in coming out with their fantasies. The norm is stifling.’’
