Six Words: 'You've Got To Be Taught' Intolerance | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
A huge hit upon its release, the 1949 musical South Pacific still resonates with contributors to The Race Card Project — particularly a song about how prejudice is learned, not innate.

History of the Yoni in World Faith

History of the Yoni in World Faith | Let's Get Sex Positive | 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.

Gracie Passette's insight:

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?

Is Wearing Vintage Fashions Feminist? (Or, Sign Of The Times 1948)

Is Wearing Vintage Fashions Feminist? (Or, Sign Of The Times 1948) | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

At my vintage living blog, Things Your Grandmother Knew, I’ve written about the tendency to romanticize the past, but I recently read two blog posts discussing vintage fashion in terms of “the vintage girl being the new feminist” and thought it was time to discuss the subject from a more feminist angle…

In defense of heroin users and sex workers: an interview with author of You Will Die

In defense of heroin users and sex workers: an interview with author of You Will Die | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

You Will Die exposes the fallacies and the history behind our taboos on excrement, sex, drugs, and death. Arthur uses racy readability and rigorous documentation to raze sacred shrines of political correctness on the left and of conventional wisdom on the right. From the proper way to defecate to how to reach nirvana, anticipate the unexpected. It is not simply a novel exploration of sex and drugs, but also of individuality, liberty, and the meaning of life. You Will Die gives readers a new way of seeing their world and allows them to make a more informed choice about living an authentic life.

"Safe abortions have always been available to the rich, Dan. You simply want to deny them to the poor, and if you succeed, poor women will be forced to get them anyway. They’ll be forced into the alleys with hangers, plungers and vacuum cleaners, risking death or mutilation. But you’d like that, wouldn’t you, Dan? You sadistic, elitist, sexist, racist, anti-humanist pig!" - Saturday Night Live 3x18 .This aired in 1978. Thirty-four years later, it’s still a f*ing debate.

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

Why the Sex Positive Movement is Bad for Sex Workers’ Rights | Let's Get Sex Positive | 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.

The first sexual revolution: Forget the Swinging Sixties. A new book says Moll ... - Daily Mail | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Forget for a minute the sexual revolution of the 1960s, which ushered in bra-burning and an era of free sex and feminism. The revolution in the 18th century described by Faramerz Dabhoiwala in his book led to an age of sexual freedom that would have modern feminists reaching for the smelling salts.

America in Ferment -the 60s Gay and Lesbian Liberation

America in Ferment -the 60s Gay and Lesbian Liberation | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

"Early in the morning of June 27, 1969, New York City police staged a raid on the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar whose patrons included transvestites, gay men, and lesbians. Raids on gay or cross-dresser bars were common at the time. State law threatened bars with the loss of their liquor licenses if they tolerated same-sex dancing or employed or served men who wore women's clothing. Instead of acquiescing in the raid, the bar's patrons fought back, battling the police with bricks, bottles, and shards of broken glass. Three days of civil disobedience followed."
