What If We Admitted to Children That Sex Is About Pleasure?

What If We Admitted to Children That Sex Is About Pleasure? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

"I’ve become so comfortable talking with children about sex, because most adults aren’t, and we’ve got a pedophile-panicked culture that just seems to be adding to the great silence.........How funny that we can’t bring ourselves to tell our children the most fundamental truth about sex, that most of the time we have sex, we have it for pleasure."

Decriminalizing Prostitution | Criminal Law

Decriminalizing Prostitution | Criminal Law | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Prostitution is illegal in 49 of the 50 states, Nevada being the sole exception. But, some people believe that paid sex is so entrenched in our society that the focus should not be prosecuting it, but rather keeping it clean and safe. Others argue that it’s impossible to strip prostitution of exploitation, harassment, and violence, and that outright prohibition is the only tenable approach.

Is Prostitution Any of the Government’s Business?

In 2003, the Supreme Court acknowledged an adult's right to engage in private, consensual sex, by ruling that adults have a constitutional right to engage in private, homosexual conduct if they so choose. (Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003).)  Although the Supreme Court was careful to state that its ruling didn’t apply to prostitution, some argue that this ruling should be extended—that private, consensual sexual conduct should be allowed even where money changes hands.

Is Erotica Bad for the Brain?

Is Erotica Bad for the Brain? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Frequent brain activation caused by pornography exposure could lead to structural 'wearing' and reduced activity of the underlying brain regions. This in turn results in a higher need for external stimulation of this reward system. This then produces a tendency to search for novel and more extreme sexual material.

...Keating took some women’s studies classes at university, and is interested in sex work and the third-wave feminist view that women who do sex work aren’t victims.


“They have a choice and agency,” she says. “I say that knowing that there’s a grey area and everything is not as simple as that – and that I’m speaking as a privileged white woman.”


Coincidentally, the two see a connection between the stripper’s world and that of live theatre.

Does Sex Affect Athletic Performance? (VIDEO)

Does Sex Affect Athletic Performance? (VIDEO) | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Many athletes abstain from sex before major sporting competitions out of
fear that sexual activity might negatively affect their performance. For
instance, it was recently reported the British boxer Carl Froch has been
abstaining from sex with his wife for three months while preparing for a
major fight. In fact, he even made it a point to sleep in a separate room
every night to reduce temptation! Likewise, Mexican soccer coach Miguel
Herrera has been encouraging his players to avoid sex as they prepare for
the World Cup. So should other athletes take a cue from Froch and Herrera?
Are sex and sports really a bad combination? Check out the video below from
ASAP Science for the answer.

Loneliness leads to health problems: higher rises in morning levels of the stress hormone cortisol, altered gene expression in immune cells, poorer immune function, higher blood pressure and an increased level of depression. Loneliness also is related to difficulty getting a deep sleep as well as a faster progression of diseases, including Alzheimer’s. Those things alone can affect a man’s ability to become aroused.
