Context gets critical as Wikileaks’ founder is accused of rape, British taxpayers pay for a virgin’s Amsterdam prostitute, mainstream media misreporting muddies a youth sex study, sex-negativity and censorship, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, and the motivation to ask for what you want is more important than being earnest.
Credit for this week’s stellar show goes to a stellar cast. Joining us for the first time each is author, editor, and activist Stephen Elliott, founder of the online culture site The Rumpus, and Anaiis Flox, self-described politically conservative editor-in-chief at the sex-positive online magazine Sex and the 405. Among Stephen’s more notable works are The Adderall Diaries, My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up (a personal favorite), and Sex for America: Politically Inspired Erotica. Anaiis is a regular columnist for BlogHer, Twirlit, and Manolith.
