Sex communication case studies

  In the wake of my last sex & relationships post, which was basically a meditation on one relationship with bad sexual communication, I want to offer some positive examples of sexual communication from my life.

Does Talking About Sex Impact Teen’s Sexual Behavior?

From: discoverfeminism.com |

A post over at Sociological Image ponders an interesting question: does talking about “sex” in general make us more sexually progressive and smart, especially when it comes to teen sex? SI blogger Lisa Wade uses the above clip showing every utterance of the word “sex” during an episode of ABC Family’s “Secret Life of the American” as an example.

Life Among The One Percent

It’s a bit difficult to determine what percentage of the population is asexual, as we tend to be a rather under studied group; we are everywhere, but largely invisible, tacked on as an afterthought in trendy acronyms, but not actually included, except on rare occasions. One relatively recent study pegged the number at about one percent of the general population.

Grassroots organizing for feminism, S&M, HIV, and everything else

  Earlier this month, my sex-positive documentary film series screened “Jane: An Abortion Service”. The film tells the extraordinary story of “Jane”, an underground network of women in Chicago who provided thousands of safe abortions in the years before abortion was legal. It was totally inspiring.

The virgin bride fantasy

From: discoverfeminism.com |

The epithet ‘India-the land of Kamasutra’ brings to many a westerner’s mind the image of a highly-sexed country with its people being preoccupied in mind-boggling orgies, involving exotic women, discovering fantastic new sex positions. The reality of the situation is not half as fun. In a country where marriages are predominantly decided and arranged by

“Birds And Bees” Is Not About Fucking

From: discoverfeminism.com |

Dear Madame X, My wife thinks that it is time to explain the birds and bees to our twelve year old daughter. I think it is a little bit early for her to learn about sex but not in a damaging way, and my wife is adamant. My biggest worry is that she’ll tell her

A Scent For A Blood Thirsty Culture

From: discoverfeminism.com |

It’s no surprise that we’re a blood-obsessed culture, seeing as we need the stuff to stay alive. Our deep desire for the life-sustaining substance has gone beyond vampire literature like Stoker’s eerie gothic classic Dracula and, most recently, the insanely successful Twilight series, which chronicles the relationship of a vampire and a young woman.

That’s the argument put forward by Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam, writing in Psychology Today (thanks, Ariana, for the link). They start off here: One sexual enigma perplexes both women and their clinicians: Why do so many American women have difficulties in bed?

SNL, Helen Mirren’s Boobs and Older Women’s Sexuality

From: discoverfeminism.com |

Something bizarre happened on TV this weekend. While Helen Mirren was supposed to host SNL, it turned out the show was hosted not by Mirren, but by her boobs. This week's episode of SNL highlighted the uncomfortable nature of how we as a culture deal with and talk about sexuality and the older woman. The funny thing is that the whole show was premised on the fact that they were celebrating the fact that Mirren was 65 and hot. The first image that was shown in the monologue was Mirren looking gorgeous in a bikini on vacation that made its

Says… this guy. Why is it different? Because men cheat for sex. Women cheat for True Love. Obvs. But let’s start at the beginning:

The Irish Take on Homophobia

From: discoverfeminism.com |

I’ll admit that I’m biased. I have an affinity for all things Irish. Maybe it’s something my Irish grandmother passed down. Or perhaps it’s the fact that I spent two memorable years living in Dublin. Whatever the cause, I’m unabashedly drawn to the Irish knack for sentiment (among other things).
