A Cupcake Is Never Just a Cupcake: The Psycho-Sexuality of a Twee Treat

A Cupcake Is Never Just a Cupcake: The Psycho-Sexuality of a Twee Treat | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Cupcakes only care about their own orgasms. When you see a woman eating a cupcake, you're basically watching her perform cunnilingus on herself. Small and moist and warm and sweet, a cupcake's sole reason for existence is solitary pleasure. Historically, many symbols of female power or divinity involved fertility and/or reproduction: circles and eggs, Mother Earth and Mother Goose. But modern times call for modern branding, and if you're looking for the shorthand way to label something as being of, for or about the essence of a woman, and you have no pictogram of a vagina handy, by all means, slap a cupcake on it.

Anti-Prostitution Pledge Heads to Supreme Court | The Nation

Anti-Prostitution Pledge Heads to Supreme Court | The Nation | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

On Monday, the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in a case that will decide if recipients of government aid can be forced to oppose prostitution – or potentially any other issue as a contingency of receiving U.S. funds. The case, Alliance for Open Society International v United States Agency for International Development, arises from a controversial policy governing AIDS education, prevention, and treatment, a decade-long fight that's crossed political lines and was kicked off by Rep. Chris Smith as part of a larger conservative attempt to undermine reproductive and sexual health care. With HIV and AIDS projects facing closure if they don't adopt the government's position on sex work, it's sex workers who are paying the ultimate price.

A two-year budget bill advanced by Ohio's state House of Representatives on Tuesday would defund Planned Parenthood, redirect that state money to Christian-run "crisis pregnancy centers," and impose a fine of up to $5,000 on teachers who provide certain kinds of sex education instruction to their students.

The Gay Sex Club Next to the Vatican Is the Saddest Place on Earth | VICE United States

The Gay Sex Club Next to the Vatican Is the Saddest Place on Earth | VICE United States | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Last month, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica discovered that the Vatican had paid $35 million for an apartment block housing the Europa Multiclub, which calls itself the “number-one gay sauna in Italy.” The media used the story as another example of the Catholic Church being so obviously gay that they should just come on out and admit it. As a former Catholic schoolboy who believed in God till I saw Hugh Jackman in The Boy from Oz, a Broadway musical about Liza Minnelli’s first gay husband, I wasn’t surprised. I remember my school’s baseball coach sexually assaulting students and my first-grade teaching assistant nearly losing her job after she had an alleged lesbian make-out session with a PE coach—Catholics and shady sex shenanigans go together like red wine and wafers.

 

Naturally, when I visited Rome recently, the Multiclub was on my sightseeing list,

How Sex on Tumblr Will Change Media | Nerve.com

How Sex on Tumblr Will Change Media | Nerve.com | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

American journalism has a beginner's complex when it comes to fucking. Gawking instead of touching, overthinking instead of cozying up, giving tips instead of giving tip. One in five Americans view porn, and between a quarter and a third of all global Web searches are for porn. Yet magazines and newspapers keep sex at a gigantic arm’s length. For an industry stuck at second base (specifically, side boob), there’s finally a foreshadowing of journalism’s sexy coming of age. Thanks to foreigners, porn and women. But mostly porn, in the hands of women.

 

The foreigners are key. Relentless, fast, dismissive of America’s tormented sex drive. Canadian-born, New York-based Vice investigates Swiss brothels, tests out homemade sex toys and runs an entire Not Safe For Work section next to Travel and Tech. Gawker Media, founded by a British-Hungarian, launched, ran and released Fleshbot, a blog with more ass-fucking than “Before Night Falls.” Its Jezebel site is always talking sex and publishes gems like the “March Madness Sex vs. Chocolate” competition, a clever play on the annual month-long U.S. college basketball tournament. (Blow jobs easily beat hangnail fingerbang in the first round.) Ten years ago, Vice and Gawker were considered journalism backwaters. Now they’re valued at $1 billion.

 

Sex should already be everywhere in American journalism. The media are part of a sensual family of artists, singers, musicians, novelists, writers, filmmakers and poets. Every song is about foreplay, fucking or fallout; “Fifty Shades of Grey” is the latest bestseller and a painter’s raison d’etre is the nude. I remember in Dorothy Allison’s “Bastard Out of Carolina,” the leading lady, Bone, masturbates against a tree limb at 12 or 13. That’s honesty you’ll never read in a newspaper, which is ironic, because papers are supposed to reflect the public’s interests. Journalism’s always been tied down by two prude dudes: America, who decided that political gossip and violence stories are more acceptable than naked booties. And advertising, who always bows to political heat or gets up in arms when an ad is placed too close to sex. As if a Chevy is more sacred than fucking. Scram, guy!

 

Then the Internet came, tsunami-style, to rearrange the madness. Conservative as an ism is suddenly floating upside down in a bottomless sea of everyone. Every second, another voice, another layer, another site, a billion times over. The Internet unmoored civilization’s three deepest anchors: Money’s no good here, everything’s free; assault is impossible; and property doesn’t exist. The Web is generally a very  kind place: LOL cats conquered the world without displacing a soul. We get a much more beautiful equilibrium between masculine and feminine tastes, especially when it comes to sex.

 

By 2010, one in every two-and-a-half Web pages was porn. Two years later, hard core is giving way to more sensual porn, women are taking over the director’s chair and sites like Viv Thomas, X-Art and Hegre refine the pace.

What Guys Really Prefer When It Comes to Bikini Waxes ... - Glamour

What Guys Really Prefer When It Comes to Bikini Waxes ... - Glamour | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

When it comes to makeup, guys usually say they prefer a more natural look, and luckily for the nerve endings on your ladybits it looks like they feel the same way when it comes to more, uh, personal maintenance.

 

According to a new study commissioned by Nad's (a hair removal company, natch), when 1,000 men were asked about their preferred look when it comes to hair down under, a Brazilian wasn't at the top of the list. The favorite that 43 percent of men chose was a "Bermuda triangle," which is a "trimmed and tidy" look with trimmed hair and waxed sides. Other contenders? A "landing strip" was preferred by 17 percent, a heart shape by 15 percent, and the full Brazilian came in last with only 12 percent of men voting for it as the top look.

Can Penis Size Sway Women's Choice of Mate?

Can Penis Size Sway Women's Choice of Mate? | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Rekindling the old debate on whether size matters, new research finds that women may take a man's penile endowment as a key factor in "mate selection," ranking it as important as his height. 

 

...It’s not necessarily surprising that women were more attracted to men with larger penises, Mautz said. What is surprising is that it had an equal effect on attractiveness as greater height, he said. And larger penises made more of a difference in a man’s attractiveness if he was taller.

New name for Women’s Studies to become Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, reflect changing field

New name for Women’s Studies to become Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, reflect changing field | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The Women’s Studies Program will change its name to Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies starting next fall, a move meant to better represent the department, Women’s Studies Interim Program Director Sonia Hofkosh announced at the LGBT Center’s 20th anniversary celebration on Saturday.

...

 

“From my very first classes, I realized that there’s way more to women’s studies than just feminist history,” Griffiths, a junior, said. “Gender studies [and] queer studies are ... really important intersectional aspects of a lot of the stuff we do in women’s studies, but [currently] there’s no home for it in Tufts.”

NMSU sociologist studies sexuality using popular TV shows

NMSU sociologist studies sexuality using popular TV shows | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

If television is a reflection of society, then a study of two programs on cable TV by a New Mexico State University researcher may help to expand how women's sexuality is viewed in the United States. Kassia Wosick, assistant professor of sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences, recently shared her findings at the Pacific Sociological Association annual conference in Reno, Nev.

 

At the heart of Wosick's research are two television series that depict women who pay for sex. Wosick, along with one graduate student and two undergraduates, are using content analysis and focus groups to study HBO's "Hung," a scripted production, and ShowTime's "Gigolos," a reality-based series.

 

..."People have a tendency to dismiss sex research," Wosick said. "They have a tendency to relegate it to biological or physiological, and the sociologist has so much to say about sexuality in general. And partly why my research is so timely and important is that it really brings together traditional discourses with more contemporary discourses in terms of sexuality, the body, pleasure and desire."

 

Wosick's research involves investigating women's sexual consumerism using the two TV shows. She is looking at how women consume sex-related materials and services in an industry that is traditionally targeted toward men. Wosick is gathering data about women as consumers of pornography, erotic materials, sexual experiences, and also male-focused services such as strip clubs.
