More and more women are tuning in to porn, so why is so much of it still so misogynistic?

Abstinence-Only Sex Education: A Caution

Abstinence-Only Sex Education: A Caution | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

 

The Right and the Wrong Way


Now according to the article I’ve referenced, my reasoning has been defective. There is, after all, a right and a wrong way to impart the values that lead people to want to restrict sexual intercourse to marriage. The right way is to explain how our Creator has designed us, including the nuptial meaning of our bodies; to emphasize the intrinsic relationship between authentic marital love and the deep commitment of lifelong fidelity; to explore the spiritual dimensions of the marital act, including God’s participation in the procreation of a child; to teach about the ends of marriage and the importance of each marital act being open to both life and love; to examine the very real virtues of chastity and purity; and only then, finally, to discuss the deleterious personal and social consequences of failing to live according to this positive and precious vision of our sexual powers—and of what it really means to be human.

 

And the wrong way, as Calah Alexander so deftly demonstrates, is to tell girls that nobody likes dirty, soiled, second-hand women. So if they don’t want to be dirty, soiled and second-hand, they had better abstain. And if they don’t abstain, they are doomed to being dirty, soiled hand-me-downs whose worth has already been used up. According to Alexander, this is the road taken by many, if not all, abstinence-only programs.

I Once Believed the Sexual Double Standard Favored Men | Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross

I Once Believed the Sexual Double Standard Favored Men | Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Lately I’ve been getting men requesting sex coaching sessions similar to the work I do with women. While I believe this kind of sex training would make a big difference for them and their partners, private hands-on sessions with a man is called “prostitution” by our government.

 

Unfortunately, this remains illegal although it’s a victimless crime. Even a woman doing erotic massage is flirting with John Law. You can thank our puritanical government filled with lying, phony Christians, Mormons and Jews who consistently get caught “cheating” but end up redeemed after a round of public humiliation and they promise to seek professional help.

The closest thing we have to legitimate hands-on sex teaching for men is with surrogate partners who work under the auspices of a licensed sex therapist. However that entails two fees which can become a costly burden for most men. I don’t even know a therapist on the East Coast offering surrogacy therapy or training. This affective approach seems to be more available on the West Coast. You can Google Sexual Surrogate Therapy for more information. Until America can grow up, any man who seeks sexual guidance with the kind of practical hands on therapy that I believe really works is SOL.

 

It amazes me to remember how I once believed the sexual double standard favored men. I now realize that most men have little to no idea how to sexually please a woman. The result is that far too many women have never had an orgasm as we are raised to believe we’ll be awakened by Mr. Right. For every pre-orgasmic woman there’s a premature ejaculating man. Still America has no adequate sexuality education available that would include pleasure and orgasms. Meanwhile men judge themselves on their sexual skills or ability to “make a woman come” and to “get the job done” with no information other than viewing porn.

“Objectively So Rare” & Rare Objectivity | Cult of Gracie

“Objectively So Rare” & Rare Objectivity | Cult of Gracie | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

It’s important to note that the horrors of the Cleveland abductions had nothing to do with sex trafficking; Ariel Castro’s atrocities were his, the acts of single criminal male.

 

[This is also something folks would be equally wise to remember when it comes to the use of the word "sadist" in description of his acts; this has nothing to do with BDSM, neither in porn nor practice. Just as whatever religion Castro professes to prescribe to has nothing to do with that faith's real practice, any other associations, assumed or claimed, should not be accepted. Castro's inhumanity is his; to lay it at the feet of some other group, to misrepresent its origins or associations, to pretend it came from some "other" or otherwise purport false dangers, these things create panic and other actions which do not serve public safety or justice. Castro, and those like him, should be held accountable for their actions.]

Anonymous Heels Productions | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Anonymous Heels is a sex-worker led media project working to produce and encourage more and better media about the sex industries and the people with experiences in the sex industries.

 

Sex workers are experts on our own lives, and our voices need to be heard. 

 

Our first video series, The Back End, illuminates a side of the sex industry that those outside of it rarely see. Sex work can be titillating and sensual, but also tedious, boring, and excruciatingly frustrating at times. We hope that a deeper understanding about the industry will lessen the stigma associated with sex work, leading towards better policies and better practices – and eventually a healthier and safer industry all around.

A sex worker's response to columnist Mia Freedman's blog in which implied that she does not respect the right of women with mental illness to become sex workers. | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

As a sex worker who has both mental illness(es) and a history of abuse Mia Freedman’s post perpetuates stereotypes and stigmas that harm me. Should my mental illness prevent me from having any agency? Didn’t we do away with locking the mentally ill up and throwing away the key (although this still does happen) because we (as a society) started to recognise the mentally ill as humans with rights? Or do we only have some rights? Like the right to work in a low paying, menial job or the right to exist (not live because let’s face it, it isn’t a living wage) on the disability support pension and that is if you even qualify for it, if you don’t you can always try and get by on unemployment “benefits” while you are made to apply for jobs you will never get. Surely I still have the right to have sex don’t I? I can’t see Mia Freedman advocating for enforced chastity belts for the mentally ill. So, if I have the right to work and the right to have sex, what is wrong with me having sex as my work?

Gender, Sex Work And Going Beyond Diversity: A Review of Storm Dogs #5 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies an

Gender, Sex Work And Going Beyond Diversity: A Review of Storm Dogs #5 - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies an | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Doll is a “wire”, a futuristic sort of sex-worker in which an implant in her brain allows clients to, effectively, “be” her for a period of time (think Being John Malkovich). The service is explicitly described and treated as being sexual in nature, and the various “wires” have generally been modified in ways to make this experience more satisfying for the various kinks of differing clients (the reader is, for instance, also briefly introduced to a male wire named Cutter who has been augmented with technology to make him experience more pain, and heal faster, to appeal to masochists who wish to enjoy such activities without doing harm to their own bodies).

 

...I am completely on board with what Hine and Brathwaite are exploring here, and deeply appreciative to see someone going into some of the substance that lies beyond the threshold of the achievement of diversity. Diversity in comics is an incredibly important thing, and I wouldn’t for a moment belittle or dismiss it, nor would I downplay just how much hard work it takes to even achieve getting a minority presence into a medium or genre that’s historically been hostile to it. But once we break those barriers, once we get to the point of a certain kind of character being “allowed” in comics, we have to start looking at what more we can say about those things. There is, after all, a great deal more to being transgender than just… being transgender, and coming out or disclosing every now and then. It’s a whole world of complex human experiences, questions, identities, nuance and politics. And there’s much much more to sex work than simply being people who offer the service of sex in exchange for a predetermined sum of money. Again, that’s a whole type of human life.
