Kink On Tap 26: Looking for Dirty Words

Posted: January 26th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Episodes | 1 Comment »

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks up for Internet freedom, a pleasant surprise considering that a California School District banned dictionaries for containing a reference to ‘oral sex’. Meanwhile, Chinese exporters continue to flood US store shelves with dangerous counterfeit condoms, OKCupid busts 4 myths of Internet dating profile pictures, psychiatrists want the DSM V to label you—yes, even you—mentally ill for your sexual tastes, and bigoted, so-called “men’s rights activists” (MRA) groups call Haiti womens’ relief efforts sexist. Let’s stop calling these people “men’s rights activists” and start calling them what they are: anti-equality activists.

This week, we had the immense pleasure of being joined by the always-thoughtful Viviane, head honcho of Viviane’s Sex Carnival for the third time, as well as the inimitable interviewer and fellow sexuality podcaster Unspeakable Axe, host of the awesome Masocast! If you don’t yet know about it, the Masocast shows up right next to Kink On Tap in iTunes for some searches and features personal interviews with some of New York City’s most colorful characters from its BDSM Scene. In fact, I was on one of the show’s early episodes talking about KinkForAll.

Finally, we want to take a moment to ask: what is Kink On Tap worth to you? If you haven’t yet seen it, please take a look at our new donation options. It’s always difficult for Emma and I to ask for financial contributions from you, and it’s even more difficult what with recent tragic news, but we have to ask anyway. We think we do a good job of explaining why in our blog post. Thank you so much for participating with us, in whatever capacity you can!
