The BBC reported last week on a case in Israel where a man has been convicted of rape because the woman he had sex with learned after the fact he was not Jewish, but Arab. The judge deemed it "rape by deception" and cited another case where a man posed as a neurosurgeon in order to sleep with a woman and later was convicted of fraud. But fraud is not rape.
According to reports filed by the woman, the two met in a public street then later that day ... Read More

I found myself in the art/ photography publication section of a Borders this morning; where on the cover of Color Magazine the face of Kimiko Yoshida was discovered gazing back at me. The art nerd in me lost it to her technique: the neon green and highlighter yellow layered over a matte grey, the choice of tonal variations within a monochromatic field, the fact that somewhere in this latticed color landscape is a distinct, yet sinking, shape of a woman peering ...

Reports coming out of the FDA don't look good for Flibanserin, the drug that's supposed to boost women's libidos. Interestingly enough, the problem seems to be that the little blue pill doesn't cause an increase in sexual desire, but in the number of "sexually satisfying events." Firstly, let me be proud to report that I can banish this weirdo euphemism in favor of the word ORGASM. Secondly, what? This is a problem...why?
Before you get wound up about side effects, ... Read More

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:

Some well-meaning but uptight folks over at change.org started a petition to ban the use of Flibanserin as a female sexual enhancement drug, stating that a low sex drive in women is not a disease. So, does the fact that there's a male sexual enhancement drug on the market mean that low sex drive in men is a disease? Or is their thinking that since Viagara works on bloodflow, whereas Flibanserin stimulates serotonin production, it's only a matter of time before this ... Read More

It’s okay for women to have sex as long as they don’t enjoy it or actually desire it. That’s so fifty years ago, right? Wrong.
Claudia Bellocq, in her blog, Claudia Bites! writes about being called a slut. Awful from a man, but worse still from woman to woman. Teenage girls do it all the time. When our hormones are raging, when we’re just becoming a sexual being, it's the thing we fling at another girl to hurt her, take her down a notch, ... Read More

In these dark days of brokedom, who amongst us hasn't lingered a bit too long in the Etc. section of the Craigslist job postings? I mean, I do have dainty feet with nicely trimmed toenails, and if I could make my rent just by stepping on some random businessman's face, well who's to judge?? Granted, I am not brave enough (or hard up enough) to go through with such an evening's work (just yet), ... Read More
