Pornography of adult consensual sex no longer taboo, says CPS

on Monday, 04 February 2019. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Material made by and for consenting adults will not face charges under obscenity laws

The Guardian

A CPS spokesperson confirmed the change, which followed a public consultation: “It is not for the CPS to decide what is considered good taste or objectionable. We do not propose to bring charges based on material that depicts consensual and legal activity between adults, where no serious harm is caused and the likely audience is over the age of 18. The CPS will, however, continue to robustly apply the law to anything which crosses the line into criminal conduct and serious harm.”

SESTA/FOSTA: The Strangulation of Free Expression & Safe Sex Work

Sex+STL

But why is any of this content considered as prohibited, especially for consenting adults? Is it specifically a result of SESTA/FOSTA? These laws were written with so much ambiguity that the platform providers, out of fear of being shut down or removed from app stores (think Apple App Store or Google Play) are prohibiting any content that could remotely be considered sexual. Frankly, I do not blame them for their fear. These regulations, applying to any content posted on their platforms, would be near impossible to police. And they can be held liable, fined or even prosecuted for said content. Even the much-touted new algorithms being used to scan for such content can’t handle the job, either erroneously tagging content, or letting others slip by that should be prohibited.

SF kink community grieves loss of Center for Sex and Culture: 'We've lost something enormous'

on Thursday, 31 January 2019. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

SF Gate

"It was a really, really rich time throughout the 1990s," Queen said. "And the Center for Sex and Culture really holds that history as a piece of our legacy in a significant way."

One way the center kept that history alive was through its extensive and one-of-kind archive, which held an extraordinary collection of queer literature, sex-positive, trans, and leather histories. Lady Katerina, the head librarian for the Center for Sex and Culture, said the center had at least 8,000 books in the library alone.

Trump administration quietly changes definition of "domestic violence" and "sexual assault"

on Friday, 25 January 2019. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Salon

“The previous definition included critical components of the phenomenon that experts recognize as domestic abuse — a pattern of deliberate behavior, the dynamics of power and control, and behaviors that encompass physical or sexual violence as well as forms of emotional, economic, or psychological abuse,” Nanasi explained.

But the Trump Justice Department’s definition only considers physical harm that constitutes a felony or misdemeanor to be domestic violence, meaning that other forms of domestic violence like psychological abuse and manipulation no longer fall under the DOJ’s definition.

BDSM and Polyamory

Firsthand looks at these lifestyle practices

Echo Magazine

The NCSF is a national organization whose mission is to fight for the sexual freedom and privacy rights for all adults who engage in safe, sane and consensual behavior. This often means educating professionals such as doctors, lawyers and the like about consensual kink practices. Recently, the organization has seen an uptick in people needing their help. Wright says much of that can be credited to discriminatory language that is now part of popular vernacular due to the current political climate.
