A Brief History of Sex Ed in America

A Brief History of Sex Ed in America | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

"To prevent the immense evils of self-pollution, therefore, in our boys and students ... They should always subsist on a plain, simple, unstimulating, vegetable, and water diet; and care should be taken that they do not eat too fast, and are not excessive, in quantity. They should never be kept too long a time in a sitting, confined, or inactive posture. They should never sleep on feathers."
—Sylvester Graham, Lectures on Chastity (1834)


America's recent experience with abstinence-only sex education is merely the latest chapter in our long, sometimes ridiculous (to modern eyes, anyway) history of efforts to control humankind's most basic drive.

Porn Women Like! | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The excellent Billion Wicked Thoughts has given us yet another tidbit of interesting info: women enjoy the same sort of porn that men like; feminist porn, while not bad, isn't necessarily what porn-liking women are interested in. Note that the percent of porn-liking women is small, so I offer a slightly different interpretation

2 Minutes Or Less? Women Need More Than That

2 Minutes Or Less? Women Need More Than That | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Kinsey said 3/4 of men ejaculate within two minutes, but this guy says it's only about 45%, while most women need 5 - 7 minutes to really get going. While this doesn't necessarily mean that premature ejaculation is in play it still means that there's in incongruity between the two halves regarding how long sex should last.

As the article above said, going too long isn't that great, either: vaginas aren't designed for marathon pounding, so don't think that longer is better either.

So, the goal is that 5 to 7 minute range -- and it's about control, not 'on' or 'off'. Here's some things to try:

I Before E, Except After BDSM: Lifestyle BDSM Vs Professional Domination

I Before E, Except After BDSM: Lifestyle BDSM Vs Professional Domination | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

This is especially true when it comes to relationships ~ including those of professional variety, i.e. those involving the paid services of sex workers. After all, other than the golden rules of respect and consent, there are not as many hard and fast “rules” or “facts” when it comes to the ins and outs of human interaction as there are to the more physical ins and outs of screwing. With relationships, it’s even more like “I before E, except after C”. …And with D/s, it can get even weirder. (That’s a play on the spelling rule, not a judgement!) Be that as it may, I’ll try to clarify some of the rules of BDSM engagements based on the articles I recently discovered.

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

Understanding (Some) Male Rape Fantasies

Understanding (Some) Male Rape Fantasies | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

When I asked Miss Pearl to write about male rape fantasies, she did a great job with A General Introduction To Rape Fantasies, particularly when it comes to male rape fantasies. However, one facet not discussed was the specific rape fantasies of sissies. In fact, this sort of forced feminization was what I had tucked away in the back of my mind when I wrote, “Humiliation of the male submissive can be just as much a part of the D/s turn-on as rape fantasies are for some women.”


I myself first discovered sissy fantasies and male rape fantasies when I was an escort, and it was a tricky thing to figure out at first. There are many misconceptions about these issues.


For those who are not familiar with what a sissy fantasy is, it’s one subset of crossdressing (which we’ve covered before here at SK in many articles) in which a straight male not only dresses up as a woman, but wants to live the role of a stereotypical sissy girl, often with a femdom creating the scene.

“Its color was its size”: The twisted myth of the small Asian penis

“Its color was its size”: The twisted myth of the small Asian penis | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Perhaps Westerners see in the Asian man — and by extension his penis — what they expect to see, what in some ways they need to see. Let’s be honest: many Western men derive enormous comfort and a good measure of delight in the myth of the small Asian penis. Racial Schadenfreude is why the myth endures, and why it will continue to do so. Too many non-Asian men get an immeasurable ego lift from it.


Never mind that no comprehensive science has conclusively verified the myth. Never mind that Google can provide a fair number of visual examples of Asian oaks. Never mind that the myth deeply hurts young Asian men in the West attempting to forge a sexual identity in the midst of overcoming a host of other demeaning perceptions. That it hurts them in a similar way that the myth of an undersized intellect hurts young black girls and boys. This latter myth tells young blacks that they’re intellectu­ally inferior. The former myth tells young Asian men that they’re sexually inadequate. Who’s to say which is more wounding to the spirit in a young person seeking reassurance of worth and belonging, and trying to gauge how far he can expect to go in the world? I can say from experience, corroborated by a vast body of literature, that from puberty to marriage, almost nothing oc­cupies the male brain more than sex, courtship, and love — and sex above all.
