"Women like sex. Stop making ‘health’ excuses for why we use birth control” -- Jessica Valenti, author, Guardian columnist, and founder of Feministing.com (@JessicaValenti) Once again, Valenti has focused her laser-sharp analysis to challenge popular arguments on behalf of free access to reproductive health. She urges everyone to stop saying that birth control is necessary for the small percentage of women who use it for medical health reasons, and deal with the reality that 99% of women use birth control, mostly because they like sex, and shouldn't have to make excuses for it. It's amazing that in 2014 ...Read More›
Another special for Independence Day 2014, we are representing one of our key issue posts that explains why sexual freedom is the underpinning of all of other freedoms. Please let us know what you think, and for more see A Manifesto for A New Age of Sexual Freedom and Transhuman Erotic Freedom. Why Sexual Freedom is the Bedrock of All Freedoms was originally published on July 17, 2011. (También en Español) Our sexual pleasure response is completely individual. When we feel it, those precious moments, we experience unbridled exhilaration that is at the same time indescribable ...Read More›
Stepping back in history for a moment to uncover the birth of religious freedom in this country, and how it was hampered by the Puritans, we are gladly representing a post we delivered a couple of years ago. Religion: Real and Fake, originally published on July 20, 2012 Society suffers from a severe misunderstanding of the nature and role of religion. Nowhere is this more apparent than in ongoing arguments about the “separation of church and state.” Blame the Puritans. The basic idea in the U.S. Constitution is one of freedom FROM religion, expressed as “freedom of religion.” The tenets of any religion ...Read More›
Here is small clip* from A Course in Immortality, (en espanol, Un Curso En Inmortalidad), written as an Appendix for our upcoming book, The Unseen Journey (working title), about the erotic connection to cosmic technology. The Course's complete table of contents can be found here. Tell us what you think either by commenting here or on Facebook/VenusPlusX or by private email (firstname.lastname@example.org). The most direct, basic, physical manifestation of the reality of Love is experienced in erotic joy, in the intense experience of neurological orgasm, in which the stimulated sensorium explodes with joy ...Read More›
A Course in Immortality was written, and translated to Spanish (Un Curso En Inmortalidad), almost 2 years ago as preparation and background for our planned book on the erotic connection to cosmic technology. This course is an explicit, prescriptive guide to navigating the paths of individual and collective erotic destiny. When published, The Unseen Journey (working title) will have this series of papers (number 0.0 - 0.9) as its Appendix. (Dan Massey and I cowrote A Course in Immortality, and just before Dan set out for higher shores unexpectedly in early 2013, we completed the first working ...Read More›
This is a newly carved out space to periodically share excerpts from our new book prior to its publication later this year. We welcome (we crave) your comments, suggestions, and critiques.We already shared an excerpt pertaining to the unification of eros and agape, along with a little wisdom borrowed from Goldilocks. Next, we began to introduce the concept of the Supreme Being, not as a religious construct or mystical superstition, but as a logical conclusion of and representation of actualized Love. In fact, substituting the word, Love, for the words, Supreme Being, ... Read More›
With the last released excerpt of our upcoming book on sex and spirituality, we introduced the concept of an eventuating Supreme Being, free from superstition or myth, and available for both the believer and non-believer. Here we are continuing this thread, and welcome your feedback. It is difficult for some of us to imagine how a being can be identical to a desire. Are not our desires just feelings that drive us to act? Are not beings just consciousnesses capable of action? When we unify the desire for action with the accomplishment of that action as one and the same occasion we enter ...Read More›
Guardian Launches SecureDrop System for Whistleblowers to Share Files We took to Facebook the other day, so thrilled to see that The Guardian has just launched something called SecureDrop for use by anonymous whistleblowers to securely submit documents and data. Our first reaction? This . . . will be a real game-changer. Game-changer really understates the significance of this matriculation from grassroots efforts such as Anonymous, a loose, silent brotherhood of freedom fighters, and WikiLeaks, a bold and successful effort to organize these nascent efforts. Now the Pulitzer-winning Guardian, a 200-year-old news organization ...Read More›
Jamie Raskin, law professor and Maryland State Senator, is trying in vain to explain to the luddites in Congress why free speech shouldn't cover things like bribery to politicians, recently okayed by the US Supreme Court in several rulings. He wisely invokes prostitution to get their attention, to show the context of free speech, but it's just used as a expositional device. But let's take his point in another direction. The legalization or decriminalization of prostitution is a campaign VenusPlusX and ...Read More›
Editor's note: republishing it by popular demand ...
The New Age of Sexual Freedom is synonymous with the end of sexism, and the end of racism (the greatest form of sexual oppression), and the end of nationalism for the purposes of war (the greatest form of racism), in the shortest amount of time (because we are killing each other).One of our most frequently asked questions is Why A New Age Of Sexual Freedom? Also, what’s that got to do with human rights -- equality rights, immigration rights, environmental protections, and safeguarding net neutrality?
In honor of the relaunch of VenusPlusX, I ...Read More›
