22 Sexy Songs That Give Female Masturbation The Love It Deserves by Caroline Bologna | Huffington Post

30 Apr , 2017  

Caroline Bologna via The Huffington Post

“In August, Hailee Steinfeld released her debut single and music video — an upbeat song called “Love Myself.” With lyrics like “know how to satisfy, keeping that tempo right without you” and “I’m gonna touch the pain away, I know how to scream my own name,” the song has earned praise from many female listeners who consider it a bonafide “masturbation anthem.”
Admittedly, the lyrics are ambiguous enough to assume that “Love Myself” is just a fun pop song about feeling empowered, but when Steinfeld appears in the music video wearing a leotard with the words “self service,” any doubts about the song’s “menage à moi” meaning are quelled.”

CASUAL SEX: EVERYONE IS DOING IT | Maria Konnikova via The New Yorker

28 Apr , 2017  

the New YorkerZhana Vrangalova had hit a problem. On a blustery day in early spring, sitting in a small coffee shop near the campus of New York University, where she is an adjunct professor of psychology, she was unable to load onto her laptop the Web site that we had met to discuss. This was not a technical malfunction on her end; rather, the site had been blocked. Vrangalova, who is thirty-four, with a dynamic face framed by thick-rimmed glasses, has spent the past decade researching human sexuality, and, in particular, the kinds of sexual encounters that occur outside the norms of committed relationships. The Web site she started in 2014, casualsexproject.com, began as a small endeavor fuelled by personal referrals, but has since grown to approximately five thousand visitors a day, most of whom arrive at the site through organic Internet searches or referrals through articles and social media. To date, there have been some twenty-two hundred submissions, about evenly split between genders, each detailing the kinds of habits that, when spelled out, can occasionally alert Internet security filters. The Web site was designed to open up the discussion of one-night stands and other less-than-traditional sexual behaviors. What makes us engage in casual sex? Do we enjoy it? Does it benefit us in any way—or, perhaps, might it harm us? And who, exactly, is “us,” anyway?”Read more

‘Art is my weapon’: meet the Turkish artist taking on Erdoğan | Nosheen Iqbal via The Guardian

12 Apr , 2017  

“Ekin Onat’s project for the Venice Biennale sensationally exposes police brutality and political revolt in Turkey. As the country prepares for a historic referendum, Onat explains why she faces exile

It started, somewhat innocuously, with a tree. Ekin Onat waves a hand across Gezi Park in central Istanbul, on a bright but quiet Saturday morning, pinpointing the recent history of protest that galvanised all but two of Turkey’s 81 provinces in the spring of 2013. “A tree! Green space!” Nothing more radical than the environment, she says, walking me through the greenery hitched to the concrete slabs of Taksim Square. Peaceful demonstrations against government plans to bulldoze the park to build a shopping mall spiralled; mass revolt led to brutal police violence which left at least four people dead and more than 8,000 injured. The momentum of Occupy Gezi swept Turkey – and flipped Onat’s life for ever…”

11 Apr , 2017  

“The never-ending fascination with 1970s New York night life takes a more tangible form at Night Fever, a temporary bar and gallery that opened last November at the Museum of Sex. Built around a photo exhibit of Bill Bernstein’s explicit black-and-white photos from infamous clubs like Xenon and Studio 54, the bar allows patrons to view the art while sipping cocktails and dancing to the disco beat…”
