Kink On Tap 16: Teledildonics could save us!

Posted: November 17th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Episodes | 2 Comments »

Scarleteen begins providing accurate sex information via text messages amidst increasing reports of women choosing to re-sculpt their vaginas with dangerous surgery, Senator Stupak deserves a coat hanger in his Christmas stocking this year, Publisher’s Weekly values mens’ ambitious writing over womens’ quality prose, and, although Ikea doesn’t actually sell flat-pack bondage furniture, a future of nifty sex toys and other gizmos to better pleasure your lover looks promising!

We were joined this week by two techy, sexy, science-y ladies: the inestimable Amber Ying, medical and sexual health student, and the fantastic teledildonics researcher, Laura Duncan. This great conversation included insights into the many ways in which sex intersects with technology, socio-economic circumstance, and age. And we thought we knew most of the ways in which our computers and our sex lives could intersect!

As an important aside, if you’re in the Washington, DC metro area, don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in an open to the public, totally free sexuality conference being held on Saturday, November 21st. This one-day long public event welcomes anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn to attend and speak at!

    As a man, I am greatly offended by men (such as Senator Stupak) who try to take away women’s reproductive rights. I feel that, as a man, the only fair stance I have to make is to be pro-choice.
    If a man doesn’t want anything to do with an unwanted child, all he has to do is shove the mother out of their life and, if they want to go to the length of, move away. Where as, it is up to the mother to pursue the father, prove paternity, and the further pursue them through the courts to make the father take responsibility for their child.
    When men can get pregnant, only then will I feel that they’ll have the right to pass judgment in regards to reproductive rights, especially abortion.

    It occurs to me that being pro-choice, while often thought of as promoting purely women’s rights, actually promotes men’s freedom as well. In a situation wherein abortion were not legal, but neither would-be parent wanted the baby, then both the women and the man’s choices are unfairly restricted.
