Why We Need Sex Ed – Fabulous Graphic

There’s a lot of talk about shutting down various reproductive rights in our country. This is based on fear and control coming from the patriarchy plaguing our society. (Patriarchy is the fear of the feminine and mature masculine.) These religious-based opinions are downright dangerous. Combating this ignorance are people like Jen and her team, who […]

There are still a few tables available at Planned Parenthood’s upcoming fundraiser, Sex Trivia Night. While the SEX+STL table is full, we would love to see this event sell out.

Typography Porn

Penguin Classics recently released a new translation of Vatsyayana’s Kama Sutra. I must say that, despite have little interest in reading the book in the past, the new design makes me wish I owned a copy: The porno-typography is the work of illustrator Malika Favre, and the new edition “offers a compelling modern translation of […]

Two New Comic Releases Face Sexuality Head On

Today is a pretty big day for socially-and-sexually relevant comic books. Anyone who is/loves/sleeps with/knows a comic reader knows that Wednesday is New Comics Day, but you might not know exactly what’s hitting the shelves at your local comic store, or how relevant these stories are.

Oh, No! James Deen Makes Girls Like Porn!

I know that this ABC Nightline report wasn’t supposed to make me happy, but it did: video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player “It’s your fault that people are looking at you!” “…and?” Maybe I have the same taste in straight porn as teenage girls, but James Deen is one of the few male-porn-stars-from-straight-porn that I actually […]

SEX+STL Stands With Planned Parenthood

News recently broke that the Susan G. Komen Foundation was pulling $700,000 worth of funding from Planned Parenthood, money that was used to give women access to affordable or free breast cancer screenings. This is just another reminder that the fight for reproductive rights is an ongoing struggle, and that the people who need family […]

The False Body Dichotomy

If you’re on any sort of social network, chances are pretty good that you’ve come across the following image, or one like it: If you’re like me, the first time you saw it, the first thing you thought was “Damn straight!” This has been the most prominent reaction that I’ve seen in the numerous comment […]

How To Tell a True Porn Story

One of the lessons I’m going to give you in my writing talk tomorrow is a simple and important one: sit your ass in the chair and write.
