Sex School: Food and Sex, Lesson Two

March 11, 2015

                In our first lesson on food and sex, we covered a few of the reasons food is commonly linked to sex, as well as some relevant terms and a couple ways food can be used to improve or worsen sex. This week, we’re going to dive in […]

Food and Sex, Lesson One

March 08, 2015

For centuries, people have been relating sex to food in a variety of different ways. From advertisements featuring scantily-clad models making bedroom eyes at a hamburger to movies (American Pie, anyone?) to slang (melons = breasts and grapes = testicles), it’s clear that there is a very strong association between food and sex in the […]

Debunking the Virginity Myth: Beyond PiV

February 22, 2015

In Lesson 1, we talked about why virginity as a social construct is harmful. Lesson 2 looked at the etymology of “virgin” and how it measure the worth of cis women by their purity. Now it’s time to look at the rest of the sexual world…those left out of “virginity” as it is traditionally understood. […]

DEBUNKING THE VIRGINITY MYTH: The Virginity Binary

February 18, 2015

Lesson 1 sparked a lot of questions. The first being, “Where did all this false information come from?” Basic etymology could shed light to this history. Note: Like in Lesson 1, the concept of “virginity” is rooted in hetero- and cis-normative social constructs. In this piece, woman is being used as shorthand to explain this […]

Debunking The Virginity Myth, Lesson 1: The Hymen

February 15, 2015

“Shiny and new, like a virgin, touched for the very first time.” Gee, Madonna, that sounds an awful lot  like change or some other inanimate metal object.  But, virginity is not about newly minted money, no. It’s about having sex for the first time! Sex (as well as sexuality) is extremely important to our existence […]

Sunday Sex School: Kink, Lesson 2

February 04, 2015

Now that we have outlined some of the basics in the world of kink, let’s address the giant, blind-folded elephant in the room. 50 Shades of Grey, the “kink” cultural phenomenon, will be released on Valentine’s Day weekend. The book, which introduced BDSM to the general public in 2011, has raised ire in The Scene […]

Sunday Sex School: Kink, Lesson 1

February 01, 2015

In the froyo bar of sex, kink is the toppings section. You peruse the offerings, see some things that are familiar, some things that look enticing, and some things that you cannot identify that you have no interest in trying (seriously, little juice filled balls). One thing to remember about kink, to belabor the dessert […]

Sunday Sex School: Reproductive Rights, Lesson 3

January 26, 2015

So we’ve already talked about the big topics in reproductive rights and while the issue seems to be getting bigger and bigger, it still affects people individually everyday. But that raises the question about how one person can overcome the restrictions on reproductive rights in their own life. Whether you’re interested in social justice or just […]
