Kink On Tap 41: Why is there a baby?

Posted: May 21st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Episodes | 2 Comments »

Reality TV “virgin auction” wants to shoot in Nevada because it’s too dirty for Down Under, just like tampon artwork is too dirty for the Fashion Institute of Technology. Sex gets better (and more frequent) when you’re a sexagenarian, a new Christian sex education campaign is setting a trend for talking to youth, and it turns out Chimpanzees use sex toys just like we do. (Well…kinda.)

This week, divinity student Lilly Dagdigian and her partner Per join us and answer questions from queerness to Quakers! (Not the oats.) Per elucidates some of the ways that others’ queer sexuality benefits him as a straight man, while Lily tells us a little bit about the ethics of polyamory in an academic environment. Of course, none of us could resist the monkey jokes.

Remember to check out the new Kink On Tap Briefs, where you can read summaries of some upcoming topics, review Kink On Tap on iTunes to let us know what you think, and if you happen to be in the Seattle area, be sure to check out the Sex 2.0 conference. Both of us are attending, and maymay will be speaking on transparency and social capital for social change.

    FYI: if Wikipedia is to be believed, the “white bisexual” conception of Patient Zero is probably false. Current wisdom now says that AIDS probably first left Africa 1966 by spreading to Haiti, and then came to the US in 1969, probably from a single immigrant. So, for political correctness, this is a blow both for and against preconceptions: a single Haitian immigrant probably *was* black, but was also probably straight.

    Great episode guys, sorry it took so long to edit!

    Huh! Thanks for pointing this out, Ian. I’ve Wikipedia’s reference to the “External references” section of the Kink On Tap 41 show notes wiki page so that people can follow up on their own, too.

    And, as usual, thanks for helping us produce the show! ‘Til next week! :)
