Everything is Sticky

Last week I proposed to write weekly previews of chapters that will make up this new project, My Mother’s Cross. So far, I’ve shared previews of the introductory chapter called “Maternity Leave,” and a chapter called “Hospital Domme“. Today I’m going to give you a peek into “Everything Is Sticky.” Sex is sticky. Parent-child conversations…

Treating the whole person

The encouragement I’ve received as a result of these blog posts and the material I’ve shared over the past two weeks has been truly inspiring. I wish I could work on this full time! I’m applying for a sabbatical so that next academic year I can do exactly that. For the time being, though, I…

Boundaries

Last week I introduced a new project I’m working on, and shared a small excerpt. Today I have a question. I’ve been thinking about this question a lot as I think about my relationship with my mother, and as I think about how our relationship affected the way she explored her sexuality. What I’m wondering…

Rebirth

Many of you know that almost a year ago my mother died, and I spent most of the eight months before that with her in the various hospital and rehab settings in which she spent her last months. For the two and a half years before she got sick, I was focused largely on my…

Sin Tax Error

Should strip clubs be taxed to fund state services for sexual assault victims? Tracy Clark Flory raises that question in a recent Salon article. Strip club taxes seem to be popular these days. According to Flory, States from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Illinois, and California have all proposed targeted strip club taxes taxes.  Flory doesn’t offer…

Sexual Freedom, The War on Women, and Nuclear (family) Destruction

Did you get the memos?  Stop. Don’t look. Don’t be aroused. And don’t have sex. Not until you are sure you’re going to marry that person. Provided that you are legally allowed to marry that person. That one person and no other persons.  And let’s not miss the ridiculous idea that sexual freedom is bad…

Call for Submissions: New Views on Pornography: Sexuality, Politics, and the Law

One of the issues in the arsenal of weapons in America’s war on sex is pornography.  And one of the best defenses is a strong offense.  By compiling this collection, authors Lynn Comella and Shira Tarrant are taking tremendous, bold steps to bring the much-needed discussions out into the open in two accessible volumes. The…

Does Drivers’ Ed Undermine Parental Rights?

By Elizabeth Anne Wood and Ricci J. Levy Wouldn’t that be a silly headline and a ridiculous debate?  And yet, we have the same debate about sexuality education.  In an opinion piece published in the New York Times, Robert P. George and Melissa Moschella took the position that a new sexuality education curriculum to be offered in…

No One Expects the Polk County Inquisition!

I just recently learned the story of EllenBeth Wachs, who is suing Sheriff Grady Judd of Polk County, Florida, for harassment. Wachs has been arrested three times recently, each time for a trumped up charge. It seems that Sheriff Grady Judd doesn’t like EllenBeth Wachs because she is an atheist, and a politically active one…

Insulted and Confused

Let’s pretend. Let’s imagine that Mary hears that John is gay, and is having same-sex relationships while dating Susie. Mary tells Jane in hopes of getting the message to Susie. (Jane is a close friend of Susie’s mom.) Mary believes that Susie should know what her boyfriend is up to, but doesn’t know Susie well…
