Reflections on Going to the Gyno

August 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

I wonder what it’s like to be a gynecologist. I’m sure the experience varies wildly depending on your type of practice, geographic location, specialization, and so on, but every time I go to visit my gynecologist I just can’t help thinking that the job must be joyful and joyless [...continue...]

Linkyamory: This is Serious

July 26, 2011 | 0 Comments

A very worthwhile call for essays over at QLit: Rejecting the Bedroom: Sex and Sexuality as a Site of Queer Resistance and Space. Anyone with a bent toward queer theory should get up in this biz! The question being asked is totally fascinating: how can queer people make the bedroom not the only [...continue...]

Oooooooh This Makes Me Mad

July 3, 2011 | 0 Comments

A not-very-thought-provoking read on Al Jazeera (to their credit–in the Opinions section–by Naomi Wolf: “Is pornography driving men crazy?” An interesting title, actually, because she doesn’t really talk about what she means by “crazy” in the first place. I [...continue...]

I don’t like people talking shit about Anthony Weiner. It is so fucking annoying.  Such short memories people have. The real disgrace is with the American people, not him. Some of my friends have tweeted that he’s an asshole, and my first instinct was to unfollow them. I’m very defensive [...continue...]

Proud to Be a New Yorker Today

June 25, 2011 | 0 Comments

Well, the excuse I offered my mom about why I’m not married yet (that I was showing solidarity with the gays–much easier than getting into my ideological issues with marriage in general, and MUCH easier than explaining that I’m queer, and also, yes, cowardly of me) just got thrown [...continue...]

1) You know, as disgusted as I am with the hysteria over Weiner’s wiener/Weinergate crapfest–I mean, seriously, what is the big DEAL, people? It’s not as if the idea that one of our politicians might be a little sleazy in his personal life is anything new to any of us–I have [...continue...]

I’ve Missed a Lot

June 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

Wow, I’ve been gone for just a week and a half-ish, but I feel like I’ve missed so much in the world of sex and porn in America! Cal-OSHA is stepping up efforts to impose barrier-only sex in porn, performers are going to Talent Testing for their panels, a gay teen was abducted and sent [...continue...]

Superheroes, Sex Workers, and Spoils

April 26, 2011 | 0 Comments

I woke up today with a pounding headache, nausea, and low grade fever. Since I’m supposed to work all day tomorrow, I’m going to try to take it easy today and postpone my next post about the intricacies of showing consent in porn (a deeper look at the options), in favor of passing on [...continue...]

I’m Not an “Ordinary Person”

April 24, 2011 | 0 Comments

I really want to fill out the questions in this survey from Clarissa Smith, Feona Attwood, and Martin Baker about the ordinary person’s use of and relationship to pornography. For maybe the first time ever, some serious researchers (in England) are getting together not to talk about how good [...continue...]
