Tolerance Terrifies Terrorists
How Does A Bi Marriage Really Work?
Kevin Hogan is a thought leader on stigma and identity repair,...
I find it beautiful and exciting that my wife is attracted to other genders, and I'm fortunate that she feels the same way about me. For us, this is an integral part of who we are.
The Danger of Viewing
Fifty Shades of Grey
As Sex Ed
Feminist, writer, and satirist (not always in that order)
Ana, and her fans, are rewarded not by on-screen climax, but by the promise of marriage. All of this sounds an awful lot like ideas embedded in abstinence-only sex ed.
Why Do We Care About Carlos Danger?
Eliot Armand Glenn
Freelance writer and cultural commentator; MPA candidate, Kenn...
The urge to pathologize Anthony Weiner's proclivities stems from the same animus that underlies homophobia: the prejudice that atypical or unabashed sexual behavior must surely be immoral or unhealthy. Has the gay rights movement taught us nothing?
Why Do People Make Such A Big Deal Out Of Sex?
Sienna Jae Fein
Journalist, Blogger, Stand-up Comic
Not everyone who showed up at the sex activists' conference was pierced, tattooed, and draped in leather. It was an edgy assembly for sure, but many of the men and women making their way to workshops at the recent CatalystCon East sported a classic, casual style.
Ruthless Methods to Subdue Sexuality
Founder and Chief Sexy Officer, Juicy Pink Box
My mother snapped, "Why would anyone buy the cow when they can have the milk for free?" To be compared to livestock made me feel like a useless possession. I had intelligence, right? I had wit and a depth of emotion and experiences to share. Surely my modesty wasn't the only bargaining chip?

As the world's foremost religious figure, no one can do more to address carnal repression in religion than the new pope whom, if he chooses to ignore the sexual crisis facing the Church, will be absconding on the responsibility of leadership.
Rummaging Through The Sex Closet
While we can publicly talk about sex in all its thrilling messiness with a little more candor than we could a few generations back, we still live most of our lives within an invisible envelope of politeness.
Meet the Real Sex Surrogate Portrayed by Helen Hunt in 'The Sessions'
Lois Alter Mark
Award-winning blogger at MidlifeAtTheOasis.com
Going to a prostitute is like going to a restaurant. You choose what you want from the menu, you eat and you pay. With a surrogate, it's more like going to culinary school. You learn the recipes, you learn your way around the kitchen and then you go back to your life equipped with new skills.

Fifty Shades Of The Rainbow: Why The Novel That Shook The Nation Doesn't Ignite Gay Imagination
