Sex treated like a crime

So this past week I started looking for news stories about sex and BDSM.  In doing so, I was became most and more pissed by our media and society as a whole here in the USA.  More then 3/4 of the stories that I found from here in the US were about sex crimes, and 1/2 of those were about the drama down in PA.  Out of all the searching I did, I only found a few that were positive about sex.

What the hell people, no wonder people have such a stigma about sex.  Our media focus so much on the negativity around sex that when we go to bed thats all we can think of.  Sex crime this, molester found here, and all this delivered to you every night on the news, in every paper, and in every paper.

While these things still piss me off just as much as the next person, but we don't need to focus on this all the time.  What about the stories about the older couples that are still having an active sex life?  What about a story about the new research on how IUC's might be causing a drop in the infection rate of HPV.  No, that kind of story might, MIGHT, cause people to go out and have more sex! 

No, the media and cultural heads want everyone to think that sex is only between married, heterosexual couples, with the lights off, under the covers, only in the missionary position, and done quickly so no one enjoys it.  This my friends is bullshit!  Sex in fun and pleasurable, sex should be something we all think of in positive thoughts. 

I leave you with this, turn off the news when they start in negatively on sex, toss that paper aside and remember what sex really is.  If you can, write a letter to the editor telling them you want more sex positive stories.

Keep it kinky!

  1. I hate to have to agree with you on this topic, but unfortunately it's true. In the United States, sex is treated as something dirty, at best, and a crime, at worst. It is my belief that this mentality leads to many of hate crimes, particularly against the gay community. Your comment about how the media wants us to believe that sex is "only between married, heterosexual couples, with the lights off, under the covers, only in the missionary position, and done quickly so no one enjoys it" is dead on. Even when the media does portray sex between unmarried couples, they tend to only do so to show the negatives of it. They never show how sex can be good in a healthy relationship. And even in the adult movies (the ones that get the R rating) show only sex under the covers, with the lights off, in the missionary position. Anything other than that is weird, or deviant, or even to some people, evil or immoral. Great post. Keep them coming.
