    It has come to pass, that though there are very many and great issues facing our great nation—issues with marked differences—for far too many on today’s left, nothing is of greater importance than matters that impact their efforts at “four [or more] bare legs in a bed.” Like the Epicureans centuries ago, modern liberals have concluded that humanity’s highest good is achieved in physical pleasure—especially sex. If this wasn’t clear before the election of Donald Trump, no less than the day after President Trump took office, Hillary’s hedonists made sure we understood what really matters to those who, as Augustine...
  • 'Yes means yes': New Spanish law means sexual partners must give explicit consent [tr]

    Spain is to introduce a new rape law that will criminalise sex without explicit mutual consent after a public outcry over the assault of a young woman at the Pamplona bull-running festival. Five men were cleared of gang-raping the 18-year-old woman during the 2016 festival and convicted of the lesser crime of sexual abuse, in part because the victim reportedly remained silent during the attack. 'If she says no, it means no; and if she does not say yes, it also means no,' Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez told parliament as he made the pledge, according the El Pais website.

    If you want to have sex you now have to ask for it loud and clear and get a verbal “yes” back under new reforms announced by the New South Wales government in Australia. NSW is a state on the west coast of Australia and Sydney is its capital. Sexual consent is at the core of the state’s first strategy against sexual assault released on Friday, which will focus on raising awareness about consent, as well as protecting victims and preventing sexual harassment in workplaces and universities.

    **SNIP** While politicians consider whether or not they’d support a nominee who opposes the 1973 decision that legalized abortion, some women have a strategy to drum up support for a woman’s right to choose: the #Lysistrata2018 movement. Named after Aristophanes’s ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, in which women refuse to sleep with their warring husbands until they agree to a truce, the movement is the brainchild of author and political journalist Jennifer Wright. In a tweet posted on Monday, Wright suggested that single women stop dating and having sex with men expressing anti-abortion views. Women could indicate their stance by adding...

    Stockholm (AFP) - A tough new law that will recognise sex without explicit consent as rape comes into effect in Sweden on Sunday, after the country was rocked by the #MeToo movement denouncing sexual harassment and assault. The law stipulates that a person has committed rape if they have been part of a sexual act in which the other person has not participated "freely". Rape had previously been defined as a sexual act carried out with the use of violence or threat. Now for someone to face rape charges, "it is no longer necessary that violence or threats were applied,...

    Hat Tips: navypatriot and Suzanne Eovaldi A 76-year-old man is having a drink in a bar. Suddenly a gorgeous girl enters and sits down a Few seats away. She's so attractive that he just can't take his eyes off her. After a short while, the girl notices him staring, and approaches him. Before the man can apologize, the girl looks him in the eyes and says in a sultry tone: "I'll do anything you'd like. Anything in your wildest dreams, it doesn't matter how crazy, I'm game." The mans jaw drops and is completely stunned. She continues, "I want $100,...

    Starbucks announced Monday that it will expand health benefits for transgender employees, including covering surgeries that were previously considered cosmetic. The company has covered gender reassignment surgery since 2012, but will now cover services like breast reduction or augmentation, hair transplants, voice therapy and facial feminization surgery. Starbucks partnered with the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) to create the new benefits. A WPATH official said that Starbucks is the first company to do so. “The approach was driven not just by the company’s desire to provide truly inclusive coverage, and by powerful conversations with transgender partners about how...

    At the start of the fall semester of my senior year of college, I was receiving the Eucharist every day. The problem was, I was not Catholic. I had begun attending daily Mass four months before, drawn less by the Catholic faith than by the soothing regularity of the liturgy. Whenever the host was administered, I went up with the rest of the parish and received it without a second thought. But by September, I could no longer plead ignorance. I had begun to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and was learning about church doctrine and...

    In the same way that the show had an outsized influence on women’s fashion, so too did it influence their behavior. The latter didn't work out so well. “Some people are settling down, some people are settling, and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies.” “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the iconic television series “Sex and the City.” With smart writing...
  • Extreme body modification: Amputees risk death by cutting off own limbs (Sex "reassignment" too)

    Forget extreme plastic surgery, tattoos and piercings - a minority are taking body modification to the next level - by voluntarily cutting off their own limbs. A body modifier has exclusively revealed how his "extra" limbs feel alien, and has resorted to the drastic measure of self-mutilation - because he actually want to be disabled. Dr. Michael First, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, has led investigations into this bizarre and extremely rare psychiatric condition which he is calling body integrity identity disorder (BIID). Also known as amputee identity disorder, it gives people a fierce desire to rid themselves...

    National Review ^ | June 7, 2018 | Michael Brandan Dougherty
    America partly inspired the Eighth Amendment to Ireland’s constitution. And so it is fitting that pro-life Americans should note its passing. Shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court discovered a right to privacy in the 1965 case Griswold v. Connecticut, an Irish supreme court, in 1974, discovered a previously unknown right to “family privacy” in the Irish constitution. Both worked to facilitate the sale or use of contraception. The Griswold precedent was important to deciding Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion. Anti-abortion activists in Ireland could sense what was coming if they did not act.

    Despite being sexually active for over two decades,—I know, “TMI,” but you can hardly discuss sex and not have a little “TMI”—my wife and I have never spent even five seconds worrying about, or one dime preventing or treating an STD. This is chiefly due to the fact that our sexual activity exactly corresponds to our marriage years. We’re teaching our four children—ages 9, 12, 14, and 16—that if they conduct themselves similarly, they too will never have to ponder preventing or treating an STD. For us, “conducting themselves similarly” means adhering to what God has said about sexual behavior....

    Live Action has recently released a powerful docuseries demonstrating Planned Parenthood’s decades long complicity in the cover-up of sexual abuse. An investigative report has also been released, detailing some of the horrific cases covered up by Planned Parenthood, which receives millions in taxpayer dollars annually, including Title X funds. It also reiterates how abortion enables sexual abusers by aiding them in the ability to cover their crimes. The report, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” (which can be read here) adds to the mounting evidence of Planned Parenthood’s history and corporate culture of failing to report incidents...

    uestions remain over whether BuzzFeed News acted ethically with a former employee, Ali Watkins, who had a romantic relationship with an indicted former security director for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Watkins told her BuzzFeed editors about her relationship with the individual, James Wolfe, who the Department of Justice has charged with lying to investigators during a leak probe, according to The New York Times, where Watkins now works as a national security reporter. BuzzFeed Editor-In-Chief Ben Smith said he would “not comment at all on a reporter’s sources in the middle of an unjustifiable leak hunt” when The...

    In May, Jack Peterson went on a Tinder date. With a woman. They ate at an Italian restaurant in downtown Chicago, and made casual chitchat about themselves. It was an ordinary date in every way. But for 19-year-old Peterson, it was an achievement of epic proportions. Until recently, Peterson identified as an “incel,” or involuntarily celibate. Incels believe that, due to reasons entirely beyond their control ― too short, too bald, too weak a jawline ― they cannot attract a female partner. They believe they’re doomed to remain alone, forever. For many incels, this fatalistic worldview is paired with a...

    The National Institutes of Health is spending roughly $350,000 to study what methods of contraception are "sexually acceptable" to women. The University of Wisconsin-Madison study aims for more women to use birth control so they can "fully realize the social, economic, and health benefits" of not having children. The researchers will follow women using birth control for a year, hoping to discover which contraception method women like best while having sex. "High rates of contraceptive dissatisfaction, switching, and discontinuation in the U.S. demand new approaches to contraceptive acceptability and promotion," according to the grant for the project. "Behavioral models of...

    I Can Prove the Sex of a Human Can you prove the sex of a human? How? Are there standards? I am familiar with the basic concept of identifying sexual organs but that concept is disturbed now and includes an added declaration from the individual. I didn’t want to get into how that came about. I am pondering how I would prove I am a male if proof were required. I am serious, after I declare I am male what further evidence is required for proof? Do I provide birth and baptism records? Is physical evidence still acceptable. I was...

    Four Otterbein University professors suggest that women may be averse to STEM fields because they feel they work harder than male students without earning higher grades. After conducting a study of 828 students in STEM classes, the professors discovered that while women felt they put more effort into their classes than men, they received approximately equivalent grades, which “indicates that women's higher perceived effort levels are not rewarded."
