SCREAMING HEADLINES

SCREAMING HEADLINES
These are some of the screaming headlines that cut across our news on a daily basis. The battle for women’s rights rages ruthlessly across our land. How can this have happened? Though the US has made strides in just about all areas of human rights and gender equality, the segment that has been left behind is a women’s control over her own body. As a woman who grew up in the fifties and had friend’s die on back room abortionist’s tables in the sixties, no matter what I think about fetal ... Read More

Sex at the World Cup: Yea or Nay?

Sex at the World Cup: Yea or Nay?
Sex at the World Cup: Yea or Nay? An ongoing debate in sexuality is whether or not athletes should abstain from sex until after the big game or tournament. Some in favor of waiting have argued that sex will distract and deplete athletes, and that unsatiated desires can fuel aggression and competitive spirit. Others, however, think sex is a nice way to rest and calm one’s nerves before a performance. Leading up to the World Cup, a number of coaches said sex was off-limits when their teams ... Read More

AIDS Will BE ERADICATED: A MESSAGE OF HOPE

AIDS Will BE ERADICATED: A MESSAGE OF HOPE
AIDS Will BE ERADICATED: A MESSAGE OF HOPE Recently, mostly by happenstance, I’ve seen several drama revivals and old movies of Tony Kushner’s works. For those of you who may be too young to know of nor recall Mr. Kushner’s writing, he has always been a prolific gay activist whose weapon is his pen. His work has garnered many awards as has he; among them: 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama – Angels in America: Millennium Approaches 1993 Tony Award for Best Play – Angels in America: ... Read More

THE GREAT SEX AND TECHNOLOGY MERGER

THE GREAT SEX AND TECHNOLOGY MERGER
VIBRATORS, LELO AND COMPUTERS As a healthy sex and intimacy educator, I’m frequently sent products to evaluate. Because of my belief that the components that go in your car, do not belong in or on your body, (a common example is silicone) these items don’t even get to my evaluation finish line. Because of my reputation as a cutting edge pro safe sex and healthy environment educator, mostly the products are organic lubes and other safe sexual aids. Even vibrators, dildos, and other body touching ... Read More

MY HEART SANK: CONDOM INSANITY IN NY

MY HEART SANK: CONDOM INSANITY IN NY
I’m a New Yorker through and through. One of those people others tend to say about: “We’ll you can take the girl/woman out of NY, but you can’t take NY out of her.” A few weeks ago I spent 5 days in my beloved birth city and loved it as I do every visit. I’ve come to think of the chaos, morass and speed as part of my DNA. I’ve also always known it was a city that made it’s mistakes, but when it came to sex, I always thought of it as being more on the liberal side. Since I’ve been ... Read More

WHAT HOLLYWOOD AND THE OSCARS MADE ME WONDER

WHAT HOLLYWOOD AND THE OSCARS MADE ME WONDER
Aging gracefully is a mumbo jumbo myth. The politically correct, media-friendly phrase that is meant to inspire Baby Boomers to dance fluidly into their twilight years is a detrimental message to send those over the half-century mark and all those who will follow. I was reminded of how angry the phrase made me over half a decade ago when it first became popular. My anger was reactivated as I watched cosmetically perfect specimens follow one another down the red carpet and across the stage. A couple ... Read More

THE OSCARS: Oh; So Socially Acceptable Sexy.

THE OSCARS: Oh; So Socially Acceptable Sexy.
Perhaps the best reason to watch the Oscars is the red carpet sexual gala. All those sexy dresses, boobs which have suddenly sprouted, as do some new faces atop once familiar bodies. And, then there are all those sexy guys who look as if they woke up and forgot to shave. The dresses and the looks, and of course the gossip, are core to what makes drawing us, the viewer, to turn on TV to watch the annual Oscar event. ... Read More
