Ethical sluts and “dirty whores”: Straight talk about sex work

Ethical sluts and “dirty whores”: Straight talk about sex work | Sex History | Scoop.it

Has sex-positive feminism, despite its victories, forgotten that sex work is actually work, and often quite brutal?

 

...Despite the acceptance of “sluts,” the “prostitute” remains a deeply embedded symbolic marker between decency and disrespect. The “ethical slut” engages in sex of her or his own “free” will, while the “dirty whore” insists on getting paid for sex. Sex-positive feminists and other “sluts” believe there is nothing morally wrong with consensual sex between two (or more) people in private, or for adults, in a semi-public setting such as a sex club, dungeon or swingers’ retreat. But money changes everything.

Would You Pose Without Clothes?

Would You Pose Without Clothes? | Sex History | Scoop.it
Alan Duncan of the nudist magazine Nude Living looks at what brings women to undress in front of the eyes of the public: is it exhibitionism, does it make them a whore, is it a sign of frigidity...or are they simply sexually healthy women? 

From the August 1963 issue of Nude Living

Gracie Passette's insight:

A classic from a vintage men's mag.

Servant of God, or Prostitute?

Servant of God, or Prostitute? | Sex History | Scoop.it

The Devadasi, a centuries-old caste of sacred temple priestesses, struggles to have it's own renaissance. One woman leads the way...

 

The origins of the practice are often disputed, but historians agree that in India by the 10th century this caste of sacred temple servants enjoyed great wealth & property as signs of respect & clout.

 

Considered married to the Hindu deities, the Devadasi were talented dancers, singers & even viewed as political advisors. At the core of Devadasi faith is the belief all men are incarnations of the male deities & so in addition to performing sacred temple ceremonies, Devadasis offered sexual services. In the act of making love, a man & a Devadasi enact the sacred marriage of god & goddess which therefore allows them to become divine themselves.

History of the Yoni in World Faith

History of the Yoni in World Faith | Sex History | Scoop.it

Although we do have hard and clear evidence - archeologically speaking - that the veneration of women, of the yoni, and of Goddesses have been the primal and primary form of religion around the globe, it has been the East - specifically ancient India with its Tantric teachings - where this seems to have found its most exalted and open expression.

Also addresses this important question: Simply put, how can a woman raised in a culture that diminishes the value of and beauty of women's genitals try to move past those negative self-thoughts?

Flashback Friday: Ron Raz

Flashback Friday: Ron Raz | Sex History | Scoop.it

Obviously, every nude model from the seventies to eighties wasn’t a hairy dude with a thick beard, mustache or… um, mustache? Seriously, after last week’s Flashback Friday post on Butch Gaylord, we originally intended to go the twinkier route with today’s update…

 

And then we saw Ron Raz‘s cock. Upon first impression, we had difficulty believing it could have ever existed.

Vintage Nude 1970s – Mei Ling

Vintage Nude 1970s – Mei Ling | Sex History | Scoop.it

A photo of the lovely Mei Ling, an Asian-American model active in the mid-1970s. Voluptuous & graceful, with great curves & a rather splendid rack.

 

Mei Ling also did a few XXX movies in the 70s, including a couple of the most popular vintage porn reels at Delta of Venus – one in particular features her giving a lucky chap an “erotic massage” with honey-colored skin glistening in oil, until things move into a more ‘explicit’ direction.

When Beauty Is A Crime

When Beauty Is A Crime | Sex History | Scoop.it

I have a modest collection of vintage vanity items. (My collection and I have even been featured in Collectors News magazine.) And indeed, I’ve often wondered about the vast popularity of Rachel as a powder shade. I’d rather believed the hype that this particular shade was named after a popular actress at the time — but in Antique Personal Possessions, Silvia Druitt gives another possible reason...
