Anti-Semitism and Porn

jewish

Thank you to Mira Fox for recently publishing the article, The antisemitic conspiracy behind the anti-porn movement, in Forward Magazine. I’d like to make several points on the subject: I have never seen “Jewishness” featured as a theme in porn.

Sex Toys and Celebrities

sex toys

  Celebrities endorse sex toys.  Why is this even a story?  Would “Celebrities endorse toothpaste” be as newsworthy? This story would be remotely interesting only if there were a big portion of the population against sex toys.  But outside of Sunday school, who’s opposed to sex toys?

Maine may decriminalize prostitution. What is good news in all this is that a number of prosecutors at the state level are no longer pursuing prostitution as a criminal matter.  This should have happened about 200 years ago, but Jonathan Edwards (the New England religious fanatic) got in the way.  Still, better late than never.…

Sexual Misconduct in the FBI

Sexual Harassment Accountability

Accountability for Sexual Misconduct May Vary Sexual misconduct stories, such as the one the Associated Press reported recently, don’t just “shake senior ranks” of the FBI.  They shake everyone with a social conscience.  Such workplace harassment is absolutely intolerable in an era where women are expected to aspire in the workplace to careers, just as…

Where Do the Legs Go?

where do the legs go

It’s hard to tell who gives more awful sex advice: the media or the experts.   Much of the media’s depiction of sex seems directed at 14-year-olds, who can’t figure out where the legs go.  The experts seem completely hung up on making people feel good about themselves, which is not really the name of…
