In EROS Magazine, July 1980 – Silent Porn Star

In EROS Magazine, July 1980 – Silent Porn Star | Sex History | Scoop.it

EROS magazine shows it’s genes, hearkening towards 1970s Penthouse style, and adequately fits the “men’s lifestyle porn” of that period. The articles are few and short, easy to read — while the photos are edgy and much more titillating than a Playboy ‘centerfold’ style of photo galleries.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Lots of images!

Gay Scruff Through The Ages

Gay Scruff Through The Ages | Sex History | Scoop.it

The moustache is the evolutionary next level to enlightenment.” -- noted gay Oscar Wilde.  Wilde, however, was more a fan of a stiff, clean upper lip, but even he had a thing for the cookie duster. Though scruff may be having something of a comeback these days, gays have been growing it out and trimming it up for millennia. From the queens of Ancient Greece to gay porn stars of the 70s, facial hair has always had a bit of a queer bent. So saddle up, kids, we’re going on a mustache ride of facial hair in gay history.

Human Rights for Sex Workers: An Interview with Melinda Chateauvert

Human Rights for Sex Workers: An Interview with Melinda Chateauvert | Sex History | Scoop.it

Fifty countries treat sex work as a legitimate job, and it has been legalized with restrictions in eleven others. Nevertheless sex workers are still widely stigmatized, discriminated against, harassed, and, in those countries where prostitution is considered illegal, treated as criminals. This is especially true in the United States, which is one of the few industrialized nations that continues to criminalize prostitution. As Melinda Chateauvert reveals in her new book Sex Workers Unite: A History of the Movement from Stonewall to Slutwalk, these laws have put sex workers at risk. 

 

Chateauvert agreed recently to talk with us about Human Rights Day and how important it is that the international campaign for human rights include sex workers, who have always been key activists in the struggles for gay liberation, women’s rights, reproductive justice, labor organizing, prison abolition, and other human rights–related issues.

Beacon Broadside: A Queer History of the United States

Beacon Broadside: A Queer History of the United States | Sex History | Scoop.it

And let’s not forget that the Civil War deaths were fairly personal: you actually shot people or you bayonetted them and they were right in front of you. You did not get to be in a tank and shoot people who were 50, 150 yards away from you. The sheer amount of death was devastating to the men who fought in the Civil War, and who survived. So when we hear the Walt Whitman poems, it’s just this endless elegy to male beauty, to male sentiment, to the uniqueness of men—and quite sexualized, often, within Whitman's poetry and in his journals. On the other hand we have… not the image of the brave Union soldier or brave “Johnny Reb,” but in fact the young vulnerable boy who has simply been torn apart. So the male body becomes here, and we see this later in World War II, which we'll discuss in a later podcast, we see the male body completely heroicized and lionized for being brave, and at the same time pitiable in its vulnerability.
