Government censorship of Wikileaks highlights decades-long repression of sexual speech, Australian censors feed the labiaplasty industry, the MPAA thinks subtle cunnilingus should be rated NC-17, backlash against the TSA’s security theatre is only in the mainstream thanks to a privileged white dude’s junk, and Italian religious courts validate sexual thought crime.
Forget the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! The trinity from Screw Smart in Philadelphia offer many more things to say “amen” to! Kira Manser, Rebecca Alvarez, and J.D. Ackerman, the three sex positive queer women who founded this sex education collaborative joined me for a far-reaching conversation about their work as gynecological teaching associates, new media sex educators, and community builders in Pennsylvania. Hitting insights about American culture and its obstinate refusal to explore touch, whether sexualized or not, free market sensitivities (or lack thereof) to people of different body size and shape, and more, this “trinity of sex education” offers knowledge and asks questions with grace and class.
Also, as you may have noticed, this episode was recorded almost two months ago, which goes to show how incredibly understaffed and overworked I am. But I’m still interested in continuing Kink On Tap in some form or another, so I’m leaving the volunteer opportunities page up and I encourage you to get in touch with me if you’re interested in working together. I’ve done a lot in my time, and rather than throw in the towel, I’m actually gearing up for a whole lot more. Watch this space. :)
