Sex for fun and non-procreation!

In this world, we can't get away from religion. We've been exposed to false information regarding contraception failure rates and experienced the STD scare tactics. Some of us may even have gone through abstinence-only sex education!

Here in Secular Sexuality we will discuss:

-sexual health in light of peer-reviewed science
-safe for work guides on safe(r) sex (or links)
-questions that would shock the religious

I just learned that sexuality educator Al Vernacchio (who promotes "pizza" over "baseball") is also a wedding officiant! He writes about the conflict between the "Mary Poppins" part of his brain (leaving a couple "to their happily ever after") and the "John Keating" part ("hoping to inspire new ways of thinking about rather traditional ideas").

(Note: Pennsylvania did go on to achieve marriage equality, nearly a year after "Mr. V" wrote this piece.)

Well, I guess if you have a particularly aggressive foot fetish ...

Still, you'd think that the strangeness of the thing would be sufficient to put anyone off their stride.

In regards to the stuff back in November, the general impression that I get about the sex addiction groups is that they're for suppressing any sexual expression outside of a rigid norm.  From what little I've seen of it, it seems like sex addiction is a con to save a marriage when someone gets caught cheating.

Oh, and Dr. Ray, have you looked into Stitcher?  I get the vast majority of my podcasts through that app.  It would help me keep much more regular with my listening habits.  Dogma Debate is on Stitcher, so David could probably help you set it up.

During the 1980s AIDS scare there was a Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous group in San Francisco.

We at SF Sex Information nick-named it Sex Enders.

Re Episode #10, I'm getting connection errors on my Win Vista computer. I'll try later on my Win 7.

What do you think of the notion of sex addiction? Episode #10 just went up. I think you may be surprised.

Comment by Darrel Ray on November 7, 2014 at 4:55pm

My A/N friends, As you may know, I now have a podcast on my favorite topic - Sex. 

Episode #8 of Secular Sexuality just went up. It explores compersion, the opposite of jealousy. Earlier episodes included an interview with a former Catholic, now atheist dealing with his religious sexual programming and another interview of three polyamory atheists.  It can be found at any of these links.

and at

as well as on Spreaker:

One of artist Carol Rossetti's statements from her powerful series Mulheres / Women:

ALICE is into CASUAL SEX. Some friends, however, tell her to "RESPECT "HERSELF by changing her BEHAVIOUR. ALICE knows her SEXUAL LIFE has nothing to do with her RESPECT. (Carol Rossetti)(click to enlarge)

(See many more at Buzzfeed, or see The Women Project at the artist's website)

Hmm, cool.  I'll queue it up.  I need more things to listen to, while going for hour-long walks.
