As a sex educator, I’ve heard my fair share of slang terms for semen: cum, jizz, baby gravy, spooge, wad, seed, man chowder, etc., but no matter what you call it, few people actually know what’s in it.

talking about virginity is so annoying to me, and here’s why- firstly it’s used as a tool. A tool to reinforce the virgin vs. slut mentality that keeps a lot of girls scared to death because you’re either a cute little virgin or a good-for-one-thing slut, with seemingly no in-between. God forbid a girl has fun right? God forbid she has some nice fun sex and feels all good inside. It’s wrong if a girl does it, and wrong if a guy doesn’t. At least that’s what we’re told. It reinforces the idea that girls should be quiet, conservative, pure, lovely little darlings and guys should be tough conquerors. The virginity myth hurts both genders. And it is a myth. Who the fuck decided that a cock in my vagina is the end of my innocence and purity but a cock in my mouth isn’t? What if I touch it..lick it a little..it goes in but doesn’t pop my cherry..then we decide to stop..What am I then? Am I officially ‘deflowered’ now or am I still a pure little virgin? What if I get raped? And finally your comment just pisses me off. I can’t even tell you how many guys have said that to me so listen: I’m not some gift you get to be excited about opening before any other boys have. I’m not an object, a trophy, a body, a label or any of the fictional categories humanity just loves to stuff itself into to regulate behavior. And if it’s not your comment, it’s these: “oh that’s so good for you! You should really keep it,” or “oh god you shouldn’t do that.” First thing everyone does when you mention your virginity is tell you what to do with it. No. Shut up and stop condescending to me. I’m not an innocent child just because I haven’t and you’re not a big strong man because you have. And I know society has taught you to value virginity in a girl and that as a guy you’re supposed to be the authority on sex but seriously, pull your head out of your ass- sex is natural and awesome and I can decide exactly when and when not to keep my legs shut.

I believe that sex-positive feminism is about the belief that sex can be beautiful, it can be ugly, it can be difficult to deal with or easy to understand; some kinds of sex are widely misunderstood, and some kinds of sex are widely stereotyped; some people are really into sex, and some people aren’t; but most importantly, all kinds of sex are okay as long as they happen among consenting adults.

You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film. … There is something very distorted about this reality that they’ve created, which is that it is OK to torture women on screen. Any kind of violence towards women in a sexual scenario is fine. But give a woman pleasure? No way. Not a chance. That’s pornography.

Ask ten adults to define a slut and you’ll hear things like: a woman who has sex with lots of men; a women who sleeps around; a woman who has casual sex; a woman who flaunts her body. They’ll probably also use words like loose, easy, trashy, cheap and desperate. Someone might say: a woman who has the sexual appetites of a man. No one will say: a mythical creature dreamt up by people who are jealous of or threatened by female sexual expression.

this is why i am a feminist

I actually cried when I watched this.  

wonderfully done

Everything important. 

so well done

Please watch this video. It’s really well done, and very important…it will be 10 minutes of your life well spent, I promise. 

WATCH THIS.

I’m also planning on organizing a screening of the documentary on campus. I’ll just have to send an e-mail to the PHREE advisor and see if she’s cool with it.

I cried watching this, because I was so overwhelmed, thinking about how the small leaps and bounds I make to fight media just don’t even make a dent in how wrong things are. I feel so powerless, so helpless. I feel like giving up.

But I won’t, because I KNOW I’ve helped to change other people’s perceptions, even if it’s just a small way on tumblr. And if I make even one person really rethink and reanalyze what they take from the media, perhaps that one person will go on to help one other person. Perhaps it does make a difference, after all.

This is why I’m seriously mulling over doing a major in communications with a minor in women and gender studies.

Ugh and this video addresses why women like me, who are smart, accomplished and all around good people feel like nothing because we’re not body ideal.

Pause whatever you are doing, and spare the less than ten minutes to watch this.

Meet Lucy. She’s a plaid, 1971 Volkswagen “condom bus,” and the esteemed emissary of Sir Richard’s, a socially responsible condom company. This fall, she’ll be visiting college campuses around the West Coast, spreading the company’s message that “safe sex is a basic human right.” If all goes well, she’ll make condoms more fun in the process.
Since its founding, Sir Richard’s has made it clear that they are not just another condom company. The condoms are vegan, the branding irreverent. And they’ve adopted the Toms buy-one-give-one model to address the condom shortage in the developing world: every time you buy a Sir Richard’s condom, the company sends one to community organizations like Partners in Health in Haiti.
This fall, Sir Richard’s plans to launch an envoy program, enlisting student representatives to engage their peers on college campuses in the company’s social mission. “College students are going to be arguably our biggest advocates,” says Mia Herron, Sir Richard’s director of marketing and communications. “And they happen to be the most sexually active.” Participating students will scout events on campus that are specific to sexual health and help get the word out about Sir Richard’s work. Lucy will be on hand to support the envoys as needed, so look out for the condom-slinging bus on a campus near you. “Doing good never felt better,” as Sir Richard’s slogan says.

Cosmo Challenge: Slip a doughnut around his penis, and slowly eat it off.

Let me preface this by saying that D. does not have a small package. On a scale of one to porn star, I’d rate him about a seven. I only share this because I don’t want you getting the wrong impression when I tell you what I’m about to tell you.

I used a “donette”. In case you’re not familiar with doughnut varieties, this is a miniature doughnut, about one-quarter the size of regular ones, and is usually sold in grocery stores or 24-hour stores and comes in a pack of five or so. In other words, this is not the doughnut that Cosmo had in mind. But I was determined to do this challenge first (basically I was just really craving a doughnut and I figured the calories didn’t count if it was for “work”) and those were the only kind I could find.

While D. and I got ready for bed, I informed him very matter-of-factly, “I’m going to slip a doughnut around your penis and eat it off.” Since he’s seen the list of 31 challenges, he had been prepared. He was not prepared for the donettes, though.

“Uh, that’s not going to fit around me,” he said.

“We’ll make it work,” I responded.

I pushed him down onto the bed, grabbed a donette from the package (which I had slyly hid on my night table), pulled down his boxers, and…placed the donette on the tip of his hard penis. (Who knew you just have to mention oral sex and doughnuts to get a guy revved up in no time?) I don’t know how to describe it besides that it looked like a little hat. And really, nothing’s sexier than a peen with a beret on, right?

I just ate some donuts…

And really, nothing’s sexier than a peen with a beret on, right?

I am going to buy a beret and an eyepatch for my peen to match Rory.

This is why we can’t have nice things.
