Vancouver client of sex workers speaks out against federal law despite risk of being prosecuted

Vancouver client of sex workers speaks out against federal law despite risk of being prosecuted | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Patrick Clark doesn’t fit the profile of a typical sex-trade activist. Not only is he male, he was born with cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.


His impaired muscle coordination and unusual movements clearly indicate that he’s living with a serious disability—a product of brain damage that occurred when or just after he was born.


Yet Clark’s mobility issues didn’t stop him from joining the third annual Red Umbrella March on June 13 in downtown Vancouver. Red umbrellas have become the international symbol of sex workers’ solidarity since being adopted as an icon by Venice prostitutes in 2001.


In the eyes of the federal Conservative government, Clark is a criminal because he occasionally pays to have sex.

What is sex, anyway?

What is sex, anyway? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
The answer, however, is less simple than you might think.

Sex, as an activity, turns out to be a slippery thing, by which I mean it’s troublingly hard to define. To some extent we all know what we’re talking about when we talking about “having sex”, but there’s room for disagreement. The edges of “sex” seem…porous.

Which can be a problem. There are a number of reasons why we might want to define sex; most pressing of which is that we need to have more conversations about it. We need to do that because quite a lot of people seem to be having bad sex. Bad sex in this context is sex that is not consensual, sex that is not pleasurable or sex that is not safe. Sex that is, in summary, the opposite of awesome. If people want to have sex at all, they should be able to have awesome sex.

It seems not unreasonable to suggest that the awesomeness of sex will increase the more openly we can discuss it, but in order to talk about something, we kind of need to agree what we’re talking about. Otherwise our

Why people have sex with animals, explained by a psychologist | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Earlier this week, Denmark passed a law making bestiality a criminal offence from July 1st in a move to tackle animal-sex tourism. Bestiality (also known as zoophilia) is typically defined as relating to recurrent intense sexual fantasies, urges, and sexual activities with non-human animals. At present, there are still a number of countries where zoophilia is legal including Brazil, Mexico, Thailand, Finland, Hungary, and Romania. In the US there is no federal law against zoophilia although most

Masturbation & Relationship Facts

Masturbation & Relationship Facts | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Phone sex, sex chats such as cybering and sexting, camming, and other forms of virtual sex are simply more modern, technologically advanced masturbatory materials. It’s no different, really, than viewing antique French postcards, reading erotica, looking at porn mags, and watching adult films. It’s all about the masturbation.

OK, sometimes it’s about mutual masturbation.

But it’s masturbation, nevertheless.

Is masturbation “real sex?”

Yes; yes, it is.

But masturbation is not the same thing as sexual intercourse.

How being a gay man or lesbian impacts on your earning power

How being a gay man or lesbian impacts on your earning power | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

First, and consistent with US research on this issue, gay men in Australia earn much less than heterosexual men, while lesbian women earn much more than heterosexual women. For gay men, the size of this “penalty” is about 20%, and this does not alter much when we condition on personal and job characteristics. For lesbian women their premium is around 40% but declines to around 33% when we condition on selected characteristics.

Second, the earnings penalty for gay men is due to both a lesser likelihood of employment and a lower hourly wage. The earnings premium for lesbian women, on the other hand, is almost entirely due to the longer hours they work; it is not because lesbian women are paid more per hour.

Third, it is gay men who live with a same-sex partner who suffer the largest wage penalties. Indeed, the annual earnings of a single gay man is not any lower than that of an otherwise comparable single heterosexual man.

Fourth, there is some evidence that the wages penalties faced by gay men are partly explained by differential earnings growth. That is, that wages growth is not as rapid for gay men, suggesting possibly that they face greater barriers to promotion and career advancement than heterosexual men.
