In defense of heroin users and sex workers: an interview with author of You Will Die

In defense of heroin users and sex workers: an interview with author of You Will Die | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

You Will Die exposes the fallacies and the history behind our taboos on excrement, sex, drugs, and death. Arthur uses racy readability and rigorous documentation to raze sacred shrines of political correctness on the left and of conventional wisdom on the right. From the proper way to defecate to how to reach nirvana, anticipate the unexpected. It is not simply a novel exploration of sex and drugs, but also of individuality, liberty, and the meaning of life. You Will Die gives readers a new way of seeing their world and allows them to make a more informed choice about living an authentic life.

Malaysia condom maker mixes business and pleasure

Malaysia condom maker mixes business and pleasure | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Industry estimates project a global condom market worth $6 billion in 2015, or some 27 billion condoms, compared to 20 billion in 2012.

 

Carex - the brand name of Karex condoms - holds about 15 percent of the global condom market, according to sector analysts.

 

Other leading brands Durex, marketed by Britain's Reckitt Benckiser group, and Trojan, owned by the US firm Church & Dwight, make up roughly a combined 25 percent.

 

-- 'Recession-proof industry' --

 

"It is a recession-proof industry. With growth rates of about eight percent annually, it is here to stay," said Goh, who has a quick smile and gives off a boyish enthusiasm.

 

About half of Karex's output goes to bulk purchases by governments or international agencies' safe-sex drives, mainly the UN Population Fund and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

 

China is a key growth market, as anti-HIV efforts there have accelerated in line with loosening attitudes towards sex.

 

A Chinese business website in 2011 quoted a former top family planning official as saying 1.1 billion condoms were provided free to users by the government every year.

 

But religious and social taboos are also slowly being set aside elsewhere in Asia, said Goh.

 

The largely Catholic Philippines, for example, passed a law in January requiring government health centres to supply free condoms and birth control pills, and mandating sex education in schools.

New Study Suggests that Same-Sex Parents are Judged More Harshly than Heterosexual Parents

New Study Suggests that Same-Sex Parents are Judged More Harshly than Heterosexual Parents | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Is there a double standard for gay parents? A new study published this month by a Binghamton University research team suggests that gay parents are being judged more harshly than straight parents.

Members of Binghamton University’s Interdisciplinary Research Group for the Study of Sexuality and Gender conducted a study of people’s reactions to the parenting behaviors of gay and straight parents. Their results showed a clear pattern of negative reactions from study participants towards a gay couple engaging in exactly the same negative parenting behaviors as a straight couple.

Research Associate Professor Sean Massey and Instructor Ann Merriwether of Binghamton, and Justin Garcia from The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, published the results of their study earlier this month in the Journal of GLBT Family Studies.

“We noted that when parents displayed favorable parenting behaviors like comforting an upset child, gay and straight parents were judged in a similar, positive manner,” said Massey. “However, if parents got frustrated - raised their voice or slapped their child on the hand, the gay parents were judged more negatively than the straight parents.”

There’s No Such Thing As BDSM Romance? More BDSM Myth-information | Sex~Kitten.net

There’s No Such Thing As BDSM Romance? More BDSM Myth-information | Sex~Kitten.net | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

I am deeply conflicted about this post, Publishers, Authors and BDSM…, by Mary of Mary’s Menage Whispers. Especially with regards to the following statements:

 

"It seems that authors and publishers easily forget that in BDSM, SM means Sado Maso. Sado Maso is NOT romantic. In fact, living the lifestyle is NOT romantic too."

 

Fact: Whoever says there is no romance in BDSM has not seen the film Secretary.

 

Perhaps what also muddles this for Mary, and others, is misunderstanding the fact that the “S” & “M” in BDSM can mean multiple things. BDSM is complicated and layered like that.

Ask the Dean of Sex: Expanding Sexuality | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

So, when we think of sexuality…we tend to focus on the first three letters of the word. Even my title gets shortened down out of convenience. There is tons more to sexuality than just the physicality behind it. As an example, if a person never engaged in sexual behavior, would they not have a sexuality? 

 

When I speak about sexuality, I refer to it having four components: attraction, behavior, orientation, and identity.

I Want To Run Rings Around Your Rosies: The Truth About Cock Rings | Lingerie Stocking Girl | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Many people, and especially too many men, think that use of a cock ring is some sort of weakness. I’m here to set you — and your cock — straight about cock rings. *wink*

 

...

 

First, what is a cock ring and what does it really do?

 

What will your partner think?

 

What are the cock ring options?

 

What does Caitlin think of cock rings?

 

I love it when my gentlemen callers wear cock rings during calls and chats! Cock rings help them last through my long teasing sessions. Teasing itself is designed to delay and heighten orgasm. But when I tease a man wearing a cock ring?! Oh, holy heaven! Talk about edging! Talk about delaying and heightening orgasm! Or, I should say, talk about delaying and therefore heightening orgasms — because there’s more than one, there’s yours and mine!

"Besides looking at various concerns that face women, it is for the first time that the policy has also considered issues and opinions of those women who are the most marginalised and suffer exclusion," Chavan had said while addressing a gathering in Pune to launch the policy.
