Sexuality

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.

Don’t Blame The Caveman

Screenshot

Today I'm recommending Christopher Ryan's book, Sex At Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Sexuality.  Dan Savage called this book, “... the single most important book about human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948.” I agree. A review on BigThink.com points out some important highlights, and below you will find Ryan's own video on the book. For example, our image of the tough caveman dragging unsuspecting women by the hair into a dark cave is completely erroneous. Women are hard-wired to like a lot of ...

The Sexual Confusion of the Religious Right

7870244764_1ddc12b72e_z

In connection with our campaign to #VoteOutTheReligiousRight, I wrote The Christian Fundamentalist's Erotic Dream to help pull the sheets off of the perverted sexuality at the root of the religious right's distorted politics, their utter mendacity. In that post, I quoted Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power, who sums this up succinctly. "[T]he erotic dream of Amreican fundamentalism is a restoration of a cleansing of impurity, a nation without sin, an empire of the personal as political . . . "Today’s Christian conservatives define themselves as apart from the world, and ...

Weekend Convo: TransMisogyny

This weekend I will be exploring the topic of transmisogyny, which can never be understated since its urgency is literally a life and death matter, especially for black trans women. It is a part of the larger fabric of emergency re-education that must take place to curb this violent trend (and perhaps along the way quell the transphobic trolls that periodically show up on my newsfeed, and maybe yours).

Misogyny is the hatred or dislike of women and girls, as is transmisogyny. Its manifestations are horrible, and they are exaggerated 10-fold when it comes to trans women and ...

Park your formulaic sex at the door

Like a lot of people, I took note a couple of weeks ago when Cosmo, Cosmopolitan Magazine, the fun girl's bible, ran a story with pictures laying out 28 Mind-blowing Lesbian Sex Positions. The modern Cosmo was the brainchild of its brilliant editor and author Helen Gurly Brown in 1965, who started dialogs on topics unheard of in print at the time, skillfully merging sexuality with a commercially available mainstream magazine. Long considered a sexual freedom advocate, she told women they could "have it all." With this article on lesbian sex, and few ...

The Sexual History of America

US-GreatSeal-Obverse600px

First, consider the mottoes and symbols of our nation, but meditate upon their true meaning. E Pluribus Unum—from many, one—unity without uniformity Annuit Coeptis—he approves our undertaking—divine providence is assured Novus Ordo Seclorum—a new order of the ages—we’re here to change the world What is this all about? Are these empty classical boasts, or do they hold genuine meaning for understanding our national purpose? The study of the history of sacred sexuality in “western culture” in turn shows how these ideals, ideas, and practices date from ancient, if not prehistorical times, progressively converging to the present day when we are at last able to ...

Eros and Agape are One, another excerpt from The Unseen Journey (working title)

Anira/WikiCommons Fair Use/Educational

The primary reason we created VenusPlusX a few years ago was to establish a repository of our solutions for freeing humanity of its many misconceptions about an individual's direct connection to cosmic technology. It is also the reason we decided to capture the essential premise of our work in book form. Here is another excerpt of our upcoming book, tentatively entitled, The Unseen Journey, that may prompt some comments and criticism, both of which we crave and adore. We declare that eros and agape are one with unified Love. We declare that the erotic is a major component of cosmic Love. We ...
