Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel | Sex History | Scoop.it

Some might be a bit surprised to find that high fashion priestess Chanel would be listed here at Sex-Kitten.net, as a legend we admire. After all, her fashions have been described by many as 'boxy,' and of a 'practical classic style.' Her trademark suit-and-hat ensembles imply a couture for women who aspire to be ladies, not sex kittens.


But the real fascination about Coco is what is often edited from virtually every bio about her...

Crazy About Nudes & Driftwood

Crazy About Nudes & Driftwood | Sex History | Scoop.it

But already I had seen enough of these artistic nudes — enough to make me feel bored and possibly a little annoyed by them. And so by the time I saw the film, the “textures explanation” seemed to answer at least one unasked question.


However, time has now passed and I am no longer satisfied with that answer.

nterpreting Gender and Sexuality at Historic Sites


On a 2013 study trip to historic sites in and around Boston, hosted by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, participants were struck by the wide variety of ways they saw gender and sexuality interpreted--or in some cases, not interpreted at all. The trip prompted a number of interesting questions, which representatives from the Pew Center together with members and friends of the National Collaborative for Women's History Sites would now like to raise and discuss with other public historians. Toward that end, a session will explore these issues at the upcoming meeting of the National Council on Public History.


The questions to be considered there include: Where is the interpretation of gender and sexuality in 2013/2014? How do we move beyond the "just add women and stir" model of gender interpretation? How do we build on the progress made at a small number of historic sites now interpreting LGBT history? What is the future of gender and sexuality at historic sites?


Please take a moment to reflect on these questions, and help inform a larger discussion

Longform Reprints: Death of a Playmate by Teresa Carpenter

Longform Reprints: Death of a Playmate by Teresa Carpenter | Sex History | Scoop.it
Dorothy Stratten was the focus of the dreams and ambitions of three men. One killed her.


“The major reason that I’m … that we’re both sittin’ here,” says Hefner, “that I wanted to talk about it, is because there is still a great tendency … for this thing to fall into the classic cliché of ‘smalltown girl comes to Playboy, comes to Hollywood, life in the fast lane,’ and that was somehow related to her death. And that is not what really happened. A very sick guy saw his meal ticket and his connection to power, whatever, slipping away. And it was that that made him kill her.”

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?

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.

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...
