Thoughts On Vintage Erotica, Tease & Lingerie With The Editor Of Delta Of Venus | Sex History | Scoop.it
Have you ever been to Delta Of Venus? It’s an online archive of vintage erotica, curiosa and other naughtiness from antiquity to 1975 — including nearly 4000 images, about 300 films, plus extras like classic erotic novels in pdf form, old sex-related audio files, etc.


Naturally a lot of the risque fun includes vintage lingerie, so I’m not ashamed to say I’m a fan. *wink* Here’s a little chat I had with the site editor and owner, Robert…

Meet the wild child ‘Tiger Woman’ who tried to kill Aleister Crowley

Meet the wild child ‘Tiger Woman’ who tried to kill Aleister Crowley | Sex History | Scoop.it
 
The other morning here at Dangerous Minds Towers (Scotland), while I sat sifting through the mailbag looking for presents and antique snuff boxes, m’colleague Tara McGinley popped a fascinating article in front of me about a wild “Tiger Woman.”

At first I thought this tabloid tale was perhaps about the woman who had inspired Roy Wood to write his rather wonderful and grimy little number “Wild Tiger Woman” for The Move. As I read on, I realized this story of a rebellious singer, dancer and artist’s model was unlikely to have been the woman Wood had in...

Sex work veteran hails changes over years

Sex work veteran hails changes over years | Sex History | Scoop.it
Cameron Cox started as a sex worker in Sydney when gay sex was illegal and now is a key figure in the industry, running the Sex Work Outreach Project. 

 

...

He credits the quick thinking of Sydney's sex workers with containing the spread of HIV.

 

 

"They introduced condoms to the Sydney," he said.

 

 

The latest HIV strategy from the federal government acknowledges HIV/AIDs has been almost eliminated in the sex work community which academics credit to decriminalisation of sex work in 1995.

 

 

Aside from the physical side of his job, Mr Cox often takes on the role of an unorthodox marriage counsellor.

 

 

"Sex workers often spend that last half hour on the end of the bed, looking at photos of kids and wives," he said.

 

 

"People think we're home wreckers, but a lot of the time we talk people down from leaving their families and encourage them to go back to their lives."

 

 

Like most people, Mr Cox tries not to bring his work home to his current partner of 15 years.

 

 

"People think sex work would be the main problem in a relationship, but sex workers are just as good as anyone at getting out of doing the washing up and forgetting to take the bins out," he said.
