In an age when "extremely violent and sadistic imagery is two clicks away", school sex education is struggling to keep pace, a study suggests.

 

Relationship and sex education should be compulsory in all schools and include time for pupils to discuss the impact of pornography say the authors.

Paris Agency Introduces Come4.org, a Porn Site Devoted to Charity (NSFW)

Paris Agency Introduces Come4.org, a Porn Site Devoted to Charity (NSFW) | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

What if being bad could do some good? That's the question asked by Come4.org, which describes itself as "the first user-generated, nonprofit pornography site devoted to funding charitable and ethically driven projects."

 

The site is being unveiled with help from the Paris office of TBWA agency Being, which crafted an explicit 90-second short film, "The Lover," introducing Come4's first charitable initiative—helping to fund the Asta Philpot Foundation, which is committed to raising public awareness about the sexual rights of disabled people. (Philpot, an American living in Britain, advocates the right to an active sexual life for people with disabilities, even if it means paying for sex.)

Isle Of Man Lesbian Couple Can't Rent The House They Wanted Because Of Their Sexual Orientation

Isle Of Man Lesbian Couple Can't Rent The House They Wanted Because Of Their Sexual Orientation | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Following a discriminatory act based on their sexual orientation, a lesbian couple of Isle of Man wishes an anti-discriminatory law for LGBTQ people.

 

The landlord refused the rental agreement with Kara Izzard and Laura Cull because they are lesbians.

 

They have had then the bad surprise to discover that there is no law in Isle of Man to protect them in this kind of situation whereas civil unions and adoption are possible for same-sex couples.

 

"I was so shocked to hear this and felt sick, said Cull.

"I didn't know where to go or what to do as I didn't have a legal leg to stand on so after speaking with my partner Kira we thought that the only thing we could do was to share our story with as many people as possible and try and raise awareness that on this beautiful island that we call home we can still be treated this way."

Gracie Passette's insight:

Unfortunately, this is true in many places in the US as well.

Kaitlyn Hunt, girl facing felony charges for lesbian relationship, speaks out - WPTV

Kaitlyn Hunt, girl facing felony charges for lesbian relationship, speaks out - WPTV | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The 18-year-old Sebastian girl who is facing felony charges for her sexual relationship with a 14-year-old female schoolmate broke her silence on Wednesday in front of a crowd of supporters.

 

When Kaitlyn Hunt first took to the podium, she broke down and was embraced by her mother and father.

 

Hunt faces two felony charges of lewd and lascivious battery.

 

"I'm scared of losing my life, the rest of my life and not being able to go to college or be around kids. Be around my sisters and my family," said Kaitlyn Hunt.

 

If Hunt is convicted of having a relationship with a 14-year-old girl, she will have to register as a "sex offender."

 

Her lawyer, Julia Graves, is asking the charges be reduced to a misdemeanor.

 

"This is a life sentence for behavior that is all too common. Whether male, female, gay, straight. High school relationships may be fleeting but felony convictions are forever," said Graves.

Tasha Tells All...on the Love Affair Between Comedians and the Adult Industry

Tasha Tells All...on the Love Affair Between Comedians and the Adult Industry | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Comics are candid; they are raw and do not seem to filter themselves before speaking. They can think much quicker than other people, and come back with witty remarks that actually make sense--and society at large never like people who are TOO truth-telling.

 

Which leads me to something that I've discovered during my still-young career. For some reason, most comics I meet have an "adult actress" friend, and vice versa, and there's an uncanny parallel between the two industries. The obvious answer is that we're both professions that get naked for the public, but there's something deeper than that. Maybe it's wanting to hang out with people who are able to laugh at one's self, or find humor in being laughed at. Maybe it's a feeling of being a bit of a social outcast; maybe it's just the respective confidence that has developed over the years.

 

Or maybe it's that both of our professions always must suffer the browbeating of others.

Masturbation Is at the Root of the Culture Wars

Masturbation Is at the Root of the Culture Wars | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

"Tell me how you really feel about masturbation, and I can more or less predict how you'll feel about the more frequently debated 'sex war' issues.

 

...The 19th century's secularized anxiety about masturbation was rooted in a fearful reaction to women's growing demands for political and economic power. Simply put, doctors and moralists feared that masturbation made men more dependent—and women less so. Kellogg and Graham worried that boys who masturbated would not only lose their physical vitality, but would become more easily influenced and even dominated by women. The boy who could resist pleasuring himself as a teen was learning the strength he'd need not to allow himself to be manipulated and hen-pecked by his future wife. At the same time, Granville, Baker-Brown, and their peers worried that a woman who learned to give herself sexual pleasure might pursue self-sufficiency in other areas. At a time of rising male anxiety about feminist demands for suffrage, female masturbation became an unsettling symbol of women's independence.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Hugo Schwyzer has the history and context correct ~ but he misses the main thrust: Masturbation is feared as the enssuing result is female independence.

The Pervocracy: Teenage Panic | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

God we fuck up teenagers' heads.  We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don't practice rational risk management of biological conditions.  We teach them "sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it's hideously shameful and will destroy your life" and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it.  If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn't do much better than the American media and school system.

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.

Encouraging Sex Education Will Protect Our Planet

Encouraging Sex Education Will Protect Our Planet | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The point I’m trying to make is not that we should stop procreating altogether, however, we can definitely start by doing as much as possible to get rid of all those unwanted and unneeded pregnancies. Since sex is way too much fun and pleasant to give up, trying to prevent it or prohibit it would be an epic fail, and it would mean taking the wrong approach. 

 

The right thing to do in this case would be to take advantage of the learning community in which we live in and try not to stop sex, but rather, to encourage its safe practice.

He went on to say, “Lesbians? Of course, I’m totally down with that,” with a half smile that suggested I was supposed to think what he was saying was funny. As a punchline of a joke, that only makes sense if you think that we have some common bond over the fact that we both think lesbians are hot. This is not something I ever want to bond with a straight guy about; my sexual identity and you getting off have nothing to do with each other and the implication that you get some pleasure from it is gross, inappropriate and bordering on harassment.
