A Review Of Jack’s Blowjob Lessons

A Review Of Jack’s Blowjob Lessons | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Jack’s Blowjob Lessons by Jack Hutson, with Tanya J, boasts of being “The Worlds #1 Blowjob Guide.” No one knows what that means, exactly; or if it’s even true. The truth is, what is most known about this book is its sexist nature.


...Smarmy as it is, Jack’s clearly aiming his book at insecure women, using threats to strike fear into their hearts. For Jack tells you, no matter how much you and your man may love one another, your relationship is at risk if you can’t give him good head. Your man will leave you. Or (presumably worse?) he may seek the services of a sex worker (in the book, he calls them “professionals”; on his website, he refers to them as “street hookers”). While I do wish women were more confident in themselves and their relationships than to fall for this sort of “man capturing” or “relationship saving” sort of thing ~ or just let the loser walk ~ there, sadly, is a hungry market for this. “Sex may sell” ~ but fear motivates actual purchases.


This is why I am trying to look past the sexism and other problems, and review the book’s contents to see if there’s anything worthy here… Just because Jack’s never had the pleasure of a feminist’s fantastic bj, it doesn’t mean you & your lover should miss such things...

Rashida Jones, We Have Bigger Problems Than Porn

Rashida Jones, We Have Bigger Problems Than Porn | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones has recently been making headlines. First, with her charming rendition of holiday pop songs on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and just the other week, with her not-so-charming Glamour article titled “Why is Everyone Getting Naked?”


...Jones insists that she wasn’t slut-shaming and that the backlash against her statements “crushed” her, since she considers herself a feminist. It’s not female sexuality she’s against, it’s the fact that this “pornification” of pop culture is “showing what it looks like when women sell sex.” “And so much of it feels staged for men,” she adds, “not for our own pleasure.”

Anti-Choicers Get Real About Their Loathing of Female Sexuality

Anti-Choicers Get Real About Their Loathing of Female Sexuality | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

by AMANDA MARCOTTE, RH Reality Check

 

Anti-choicers aren’t even trying to sound reasonable anymore. Since the seventies, the anti-choice movement has gone to great lengths to try to spin their fear and loathing of female sexuality as anything but what it is. Obviously, the most popular gambit has been to claim to have concern for fetal life, but there have been other popular variations: Pretending to have public health motivations for removing evidence-based information from sex education, pretending to believe condoms don’t work, pretending to be concerned about women’s mental health if they exert control over their own bodies. While these derailing tactics are sadly not going anywhere soon, it does seem lately like there’s an uptick in anti-choicers just straight up admitting that they don’t think women should be having sex for any other reason but procreation.

 

This past week have been a veritable buffet of incidents that demonstrate that anti-choicers simply have a problem with female sexuality and that everything else is noise.

Example #1: Only virgins have a right to control their own bodies.

Example #2: Always be ovulating.

Example #3: The female orgasm is unholy, unholy I tell you!

Ask them about the female menstruation. If the orgasm in unholy I bet they just love the monthly blood letting.
