Framing and defining sexuality
In that talk about DIY sex education, I talked about contributions that have been made to sexuality by self-help and pro-equality movements like feminism and disability rights. I realized I’ve been sitting on some relevant and juicy links, so here you go!
- Interview about orgasm science, covering non-genital orgasms and broader definitions of orgasm. I love broader definitions— this is the kind of thing I was referring to when I said disability activism was huge for sexuality education. I also love brainscan biofeedback, which they get into at the end (brain, know thyself!). The related book looks interesting.
- Sex as performance, not commodity. A great comment on Feministing about changing rape culture. This recalls The Ethical Slut definition of consent as active collaboration.
- Video about medicalization of sex. An academic presentation by Leonore Tiefer, promoting sex as a performance, not physiology. “Where would a word like ’normal’ fit in a textbook of music or dancing?” I love Tiefer’s book Sex is Not a Natural Act.
- Pleasure is the best argument. Amanda Marcotte at Pandagon on pleasure as a noble, and useful, progressive value. “It’s a pretty tough argument to get around... ‘Who are you in a free country to tell me that you get to fuck but I don’t?’”
