What’s The Deal With Phone Sex? Part One | Sex~Kitten.net | Sex History | Scoop.it

However, in a digital age of ever-increasing masturabatory and virtual sex options, some say phone sex is as antiquated and quaint as a candlestick telephone and that PSOs are in a dying profession.

 

*snort*

 

I don’t know where they get-off saying that.

The Knack (And How To Get It) In Romance & Fashion - Here's Looking Like You, Kid

The Knack (And How To Get It) In Romance & Fashion - Here's Looking Like You, Kid | Sex History | Scoop.it

The Knack… and How to Get It was a British film released in 1965 about the sexual revolution in swinging London-town, complete with a Greek chorus of disapproving members of society’s “older generation”. In the film, bookish teacher Colin (played by Michael Crawford) is frustrated by the womanizing ways of his housemate, Tolen (played by Ray Brooks).

 

The film opens with a series of mannequin-esque women in tight sweaters and short skirts, robotically waiting in line to get with Tolen.

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning

Elmer Gantry: A Reason To Get Up In The Morning | Sex History | Scoop.it

What may have begun as the vengeful opportunistic act of a lover scorned (deflowered and left to prostitution) is quickly shown to be more complicated, exposing more than unfinished business but unrequited feelings between the two.

OC Weekly's Annual Sex Issue

OC Weekly's Annual Sex Issue | Sex History | Scoop.it

To dismiss OC's porn culture as our seamy underside, as a somehow-illegitimate trade, is to ignore sharp businesswomen (and a couple of men) who learned how to turn their curves (and cocks) into lucrative franchises, with business strategies straight out of the halls of Chapman University or UC Irvine (which, incidentally enough, have former students on this list—betcha they're not getting shout-outs in the alumni newsletter). Behold, then, our list of the 20 greatest entreporneurs (yes, Rick Reiff, that's a word!) in Orange County history.

Why the Sex Positive Movement is Bad for Sex Workers’ Rights

Why the Sex Positive Movement is Bad for Sex Workers’ Rights | Sex History | Scoop.it

During the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s and the sex wars of the 1980s and 1990s, the struggle to define sex positivity with respect to sex work served a purpose. To say that not all people have a horrendous experience of the sex industry, and that many sex workers value sexuality and see themselves as complex sexual beings as well as sex educators was an important statement to make, and one that had not been spoken before. However, it is essential to put this statement in historical context. To continue making the statement that many sex workers have a good experience of the sex industry without also including those whose experiences are negative and making space for them to speak up reveals a deep doubt about the validity of the sex positive argument. If we believe in the positive power of sexuality, we must also examine what happens when people’s lives are infused with sex negativity, and we must listen and support people with this experience in sharing their personal truths.
