Sex Ed 2.0(13): An Update To The Health Classes We Took In High School

Sex Ed 2.0(13): An Update To The Health Classes We Took In High School | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

While a few things haven’t changed since our gym teachers rolled a condom over a banana all those years ago. There have been some significant advances in sex, both in terms of our own budding bodies and the medical world. From new vaccines to fun toys, we’ve come a long way since Coach Carr warned us about the dangers of sexand then got caught making out with Sun Jin Dinh and Trang Pak.

 

In any case, it’s about time we all brushed up on our Sex Ed.

Be a Mother-Fucker! - Sex~Kitten.net | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

I don't mean *your* mother, I am speaking to all the men out there with wives, with partners that are the mother's of their children... I will from here on out use the word 'wife' to mean any woman that has given you children & that you are in a romantic realtionship with - I mean no disrespect, but it's easier to write that way...


All you men complain that we don't have sex often enough. You complain that our comments of being tired, or that we don't feel sexy are just excuses, but let me tell you, it's the truth.


And holidays like Mother's Day don't really help...


Part of the problem is that this celebration involves pastel colors, delicate flowers, the 'Madonna Complex,'and cheesy gifts.

Teen Sex Study Shows Racy Movies & Online Content Have Little Effect On Adolescent Sexuality

"Our data suggest that other factors such as personal dispositions — specifically sensation-seeking — rather than consumption of sexually explicit material may play a more important role in a range of sexual behaviors of adolescents and young adults," study researcher Gert Martin Hald, a psychologist at the University of Copenhagen, said in a statement.

Research finally shows that online education works — for sex, alcohol and health

Research finally shows that online education works — for sex, alcohol and health | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Gonzalez-Navarro, working with researchers at Yale and the University of Ottawa, found that Colombian students in an 11-week online course in safer sex created by Profamilia, part of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, knew more about safer sex practices than students who took the conventional, state-mandated health class. And their knowledge was put into practice. For every 68 students who took the online course instead of the traditional course, researchers estimated by reviewing students’ medical records and comparing them to those of peers who didn’t take the course, up to two sexually transmitted infections were prevented. The students were also 10 percentage points more likely than their counterparts to redeem vouchers for free condoms offered six months later.

Keeping Sex Drive and Satisfaction High in Long-Term Relationships

Keeping Sex Drive and Satisfaction High in Long-Term Relationships | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Recent research has progressively shown that sex is a more emotional act for men than it is for women.

 

...This study analyzed sex amongst couples in long-term relationships, partners aged 23 to 60. The researchers asked the 44 couples to answer questions over the course of five months about their “sexual communal strength.” This refers to the willingness to engage in sexual acts for your partner’s enjoyment, even if it doesn’t necessarily turn you on at the time. The results showed that those with high sexual communal strength felt more sexual desire and sustained it for the entirety of the study. Amy Muise, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto and main author of the study commented, "We think people higher in sexual communal strength are more focused on positive outcomes in their relationship. They are having sex to enhance intimacy and feel closer to their partner rather than to please themselves, and this is what leads them to feel higher desire." Essentially if both parties are motivated to focus on the other’s needs, the couple will probably maintain mutually healthy desire.

Another group of parents outraged by facts -- not just those an educator shared, but by the facts that young people are masturbating and, in many cases having sex, as well as the fact that whatever they may or may not be doing now they are going to do -- are in fect expected to do -- as adults.

The Crossdressing Room

The Crossdressing Room | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

My female side has always been with me, occasionally cropping up to confuse what would have otherwise been a fairly typical male childhood and adolescence, but I have only semi-identified as transgendered for the past few years. I appreciate the word transgender for all those qualities in it that other people find problematic: it is vague and confusing, hinting at a condition but avoiding specifics. The term can encompass anything from transsexuals, both pre- and post-operative, to crossdressers, to genderqueer, to intersex, to whatever gender variant you can think to invent for yourself. It's a political umbrella, created to give voice to all those people whose gender has split free from the standard male/female binary, a way to talk about gender variance without having to rehash one's specific instance and feelings over and over.

 

All of which is to say, sometimes I present myself as female. I don't think that I'm a woman. I just think that parts of my psyche are female, resulting in a deep-seated need to act that out. For me, crossdressing isn't something I do; it's something that I am. I shift the presentation of my body to match what seems to be a constantly shifting gender.

Sex Education Taboo Even In Social Work

Sex Education Taboo Even In Social Work | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

As social workers, we were educated and trained to help our clients become comfortable enough with our working relationship and often urge them to discuss the taboo, sex included, yet it appears even in our professional education we avoid these topics. In this case, not only did my education not enlighten me about the works of Dr. Ellis in the taboo field of sexuality, but it also held little discussion of sex therapy outside of the normative discussions of couple’s therapy. How is this helpful to ourselves, our clients, and our profession? How can we help our clients reach this comfortable stage if we cannot even teach our students how to discuss this material in the class room, let alone with their clients or like minded professionals? This remains a hindrance to ourselves and our clients; helping to further the idea that these topics are taboo by ignoring them in our education.

New Porn Studies Journal

New Porn Studies Journal | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Feona Attwood (Middlesex University) and Clarissa Smith (University of Sunderland), and Routledge are pleased to announce the launch of a new journal devoted to the study of pornography.

Porn Studies is the first dedicated, international, peer-reviewed journal to critically explore those cultural products and services designated as pornographic and their cultural, economic, historical, institutional, legal and social contexts. Porn Studies will publish innovative work examining specifically sexual and explicit media forms, their connections to wider media landscapes and their links to the broader spheres of (sex) work across historical periods and national contexts.

Porn Studies is an interdisciplinary journal informed by critical sexuality studies and work exploring the intersection of sexuality, gender, race, class, age and ability. It

focuses on developing knowledge of pornographies past and present, in all their variations and around the world. Because pornography studies are still in their infancy we are also interested in discussions that focus on theoretical approaches, methodology and research ethics. Alongside articles, the journal includes a forum devoted to shorter observations, developments, debates or issues in porn studies, designed to encourage exchange and debate.

Porn Studies invites submissions for publication, commencing with its first issue in Spring 2014. Articles should be between 5000 and 8000 words. Forum submissions should be 500-1500 words. Book reviews should be between 800 and 1500 words. Submissions will be refereed anonymously by at least two referees.

In the first instance submissions, queries and suggestions should be sent to: editorspstudies@gmail.com

UCI and the Not So ‘Secret’ Rape Culture : New University

UCI and the Not So ‘Secret’ Rape Culture : New University | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

UCI Secrets: a blessing or a curse? This popular Facebook page has been the primary tool for procrastination for many a UCI student these last few months, and at times becomes a place for contention, often spurred by the convenient mask of anonymity.


Recent posts and replies have shed light on what many UCI students seem to think about topics that are already controversial on college campuses, and particularly rape culture.


Posts that share an opinion on responsibility in rape cases tend to spark responses from both young men and women, both in support and in disgust. Seeing as it is currently Sexual Assault Awareness Month, these posts could not be more relevant (and infuriating).
