The Sexual Freedom Project

Gender Yes. Binary No.

(También en Español) How do you separate the socially imposed gender binary from what you feel inside and define about gender? How will the right to any form of gender expression be freed from the restraints applied by society? Leave a comment and let us know what you think, or make your own video or blog to share. We will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you.

Guest Moses Mworeko Reflects on Coming Out

Moses Mworeko Long-time member of the VenusPlusX family

If you don't say it, it will burn you.

I usually think of coming out as repentance or seeking forgiveness for harboring,  consciously or unconsciously, a guilty act or feeling. A guilty act or feeling boils and sometimes kills us inside, unless it's let out into the universe. When we are in charge of letting this out, coming out, we choose the universe's consequences.

My brother sometime back reminded me of what our grandmother used to say..."Waba otakigambire nikikwotsya," literally, "If you don't say it, it will burn you." She was talking about the consequences of harboring guilty feelings. You feel ...

The Sexual Freedom Project: Choose A Team

(También en Español) The idea of two genders is out-dated and old-fashioned and remains to this day in order to simplify human life for the sake of politics, mass marketing, social order, you name it. Should there be more gender definitions to categorize ourselves within or should we eliminate the need for gender definitions all together? Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express your thoughts. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you. More videos.

The Sexual Freedom Project: What is Class?

(También en Español) Let us know what's on your mind. How have you deconstructed class, and what have you learned as it relates to your sexual orientation or gender expression? Do you agree or disagree that subjects of race, socio-economics, class/privilege, and oppression must be addressed together to achieve understanding and acceptance of diversity? Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express your thoughts. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you. More videos.

The Sexual Freedom Project: Conforming is Like a Disease

How do trends such as fluidity, pansexuality, and gender queer ideas help society understand itself and become more accepting? Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express your thoughts. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you. More videos.

Ethical Prostitution

19th Century German Sex Worker, Anna Dorthea Hansen Flickr/creative commons

As a follow up to yesterday's discussion of the decriminalization of sex work, take a look at this video of a sex worker ally drilling down to the issues. While perhaps relying too much on sensational memes based on unreliable data that says most sex workers are sex-trafficked children, she makes a durable case for the complete decriminalization and legalization of sex work. Social acceptance and legalization of sex work is the key to ending sex-trafficking, not its cause. Sex-traffickers are involved in organized crime and should be pursued and punished vigorously; if they disappear so will their victims. But unless ...

The Sexual Freedom Project: Freedom vs Assimilation

(También en Español) It is easy to fall prey to stigma, labels, and general assumptions about our own identity. How can you personally break through and define your own self and your own sexuality? Make a video, write a poem, song, or an essay — or even create an original work of art — and express your thoughts. If we feature your contribution on the site, we will send you a free VenusPlusX t-shirt to thank you. More videos.

The Sexual Freedom Project: Birds and the Bees

Meet Ying, who doesn't really believe in the abstinence-only approach, and tells us why. She received much of her formal sexual education in Catholic school, and shares with us some of the topics they covered.
