If the doctor is correct, why is there so much sex ~ and STDs ~ in senior centers?


With much love & respect for women who do desire less sex in their "senior" years, it's not a rule.

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica

Why Many Young Chinese Women Are Writing Gay Male Erotica | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

An antipornography campaign in China has netted many young female writers of danmei, erotic fiction focusing on relationships between gay men, a popular outlet for those seeking to escape stifling social identities, scholars say.


...Danmei is part of an ‘‘ongoing sexual revolution’’ with feminist characteristics in China, perhaps the country’s first, said a Chinese academic who requested anonymity. China is currently undergoing a crackdown on pornography that has netted danmei writers and website managers, and closed some sites, sexual rights advocates said. ‘‘The campaign is really having an impact,’’ the researcher said.



Creating and consuming danmei is a way for women to explore their long-repressed sexuality, said Ms. Jacobs.



‘‘I think Chinese culture is still harsh on women in terms of how far they can go in developing a fantasy life or erotic art forms,’’ she said. ‘‘I think they have to be very careful in coming out with their fantasies. The norm is stifling.’’

Woman sues Georgia city for requiring doctor’s prescription to buy a vibrator

Woman sues Georgia city for requiring doctor’s prescription to buy a vibrator | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Did you know that there are places in these here United States–land of the free and home of the brave–where it is actually illegal to purchase or sell vibrators or other sex toys? Like the entire state of Alabama and several municipalities elsewhere? And people still live there? I did, but I continue to be amazed. I understand this even less than I understand “dry counties.” What kind of sheer madness drives people to stand in opposition to orgasms?


One such place is Sandy Springs, Georgia, which prohibits the sale of vibrators without a doctor’s prescription. They are banned, except for “bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial or law enforcement purpose.” For serious. Can you just imagine having to ask your doctor to write you a prescription for a Hitachi Magic Wand? I cannot.

I think stereotypes have been getting exposed long enough. Ripping band aids off isn't enough. You, Gracie and I have seen all these same stereotypes for more than 30 years. Problems are exposed but the laws don't change. It's 2014 and a male politician is still talking about "legitimate rape". He understands it is rape but because the laws are so mushy he can't see it as a real problem.

Of Feminism & Inequality In Porn & Sex Work

Of Feminism & Inequality In Porn & Sex Work | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

The Feminist Times has an excellent series on sex work, covering a diverse range of issues. (Sadly, it is only found by searching for the hashtag #SexIndustryWeek, as if finding it on Twitter was more important than a person being able to find all the discussion on the site.) Because it is a diverse series, there are plenty of articles I do not agree with; but that’s what makes it a good discussion, so, please, do take the time to read them. However, there’s one article in particular that raised my hackles and prompts me to write today ~ primarily because it has gone without comment. Such absence of comment might make people think it is “right”. And it is not.

The article is #SexIndustryWeek: Dworkin Was Right About Porn, by VJD Smith of Glosswatch. In it, Smith uses the words of Andrea Dworkin to align all porn as patriarchal misogyny abusing and raping female victims:
