NY Daily News

Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), noted the impact Tumblr’s ban may have. “They are really missing the goal of being able to being able to talk about responsible sexuality, which is being to be able to talk about yourself... to get peer support and talk about what you want to do.”

Wright said initiatives like Tumblr’s go beyond finding community and exploring sexuality — they can create discrimination and cause problems like with child custody issues in the LGBTQ communities.

Finding the type of kinky sex you want to give a try is a really important step. Going into a situation and saying you are open to anything is rarely true. Often times people have a limit but they are afraid to tell it to a partner. Disappointing your partner should never be a concern when you uncomfortable with an act.

But specific rules and parameters always vary. Some couples only date other couples, says Sheff. Other times, couples might agree on guidelines, such as: “don’t bring anyone home," “don’t have intercourse but you can fool around,” “don’t fall in love,” or “only on Tuesday nights,” notes Zapien.

The Conversation

There are many good reasons for revisiting the principle in Brown and updating the law. Those who engage in S&M as part of a healthy sex life should be able to inflict consensual harm without being unfairly criminalised. But we also need to ensure that victims of abuse are protected. This is a delicate balancing act and it’s no surprise that successive governments have been unwilling to address the question of consent in this area.

The internet war on sex is here

on Monday, 10 December 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


But the arc of internet sex censorship is long, and it bends as far away from justice (and reason) as possible. Corporations controlling the internet had been steadily (and sneakily, hypocritically) moving this direction all along, at great expense to women, LGBT people, artists, educators, writers, and marginalized communities — and to the delight of bigots and conservatives everywhere.

PC Magazine

The company has quietly updated its content-moderation policies to crack down on implicit requests for sex.

The expanded policy specifically bans "sexual slang," hints of "sexual roles, positions or fetish scenarios," and erotic art when mentioned with a sex act. Vague, but suggestive statements such as "looking for a good time tonight" when soliciting sex are also no longer allowed.

When Tumblr bans porn, who loses?

She also points out that many of Tumblr users are women, much or most of the explicit content on Tumblr “was made by, for, and about women,” and that Tumblr’s “all porn” reputation stems from the fact that “women were thrilled to finally find porn that fit their interests, and wanted to foster that community as much as possible.” The decision to squash all that, she says, is gendered, and a major loss.

“I’m just sad, plain and simple,” Stephanie Michelle says. “I built up relationships with my followers … I found artists and writers I fell in love with. Tumblr’s actions reinforce that sex workers and NSFW creators are bad and negative — that they simply shouldn’t exist.”
