While, as a lover, it matters what you do between your legs and with your mouth, they’re only marginally important as compared with what you can do with your mind. Do you know how to give with restraint? Make him want… crave…?
Anyone can be good at sex physically… but when it comes to mind blowing, well… that does start and end in and with the mind, doesn’t it?”
Thoughts on my way in to the office. I had an… interesting drive in.

Here’s this week’s cover, on newsstands and the iPad tomorrow morning. And the summary of the corresponding story:
In an age where women are dominating - in the workplace, at school, at home - why are they seeking to be dominated in their love lives? Recent media portrayals have shown that a rising number of modern women fantasize about being overpowered, while studies are turning out statistics that bewilder feminists. New shows like HBO’s Girls and books like Fifty Shades of Grey are showcasing the often hidden desire for powerlessness. But why? Katie Roiphe examines the submissive yet empowered female in Newsweek. “It is perhaps inconvenient for feminism that the erotic imagination does not submit to politics, or even changing demographics,” she writes.
We haven’t seen the cover story yet, but color us intrigued! Let’s hear your pre-thoughts, tumblr.

“In fact, if I were a member of the Christian right, sitting on my front porch decrying the decadent morals of working American women, what would be most alarming about the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomena, what gives it its true edge of desperation, and end-of-the-world ambience, is that millions of otherwise intelligent women are willing to tolerate prose on this level. If you are willing to slog through sentences like “In spite of my poignant sadness, I laugh,” or “My world is crumbling around me into a sterile pile of ashes, all my hopes and dreams cruelly dashed,” you must really, really, want to get to the submissive sex scene.”
from Newsweek’s “Spanking Goes Mainstream“… and yet another reason to loathe “Twilight”, as it gave birth to another trilogy, whose grammar and use of the English language send a collective groan around those of us who know where to find better written fiction with the same, if not better, content that is not getting even a tenth of the attention as this ridiculous work of fan fiction.

“I can dispel the old wives’ tale that you can’t get pregnant while you’re breastfeeding,” Spelling, who’s due in September, jokes on Today.”
I’m seriously confused by people who think you can’t get pregnant while breastfeeding. This includes several of my friends. It is 2012, right? Google it.
To be fair have you seen what they are actually teaching in sexual education these days? It’s pretty bleak. After that, all manner of misinformation, myths, and old wives tales supplement the ridiculously poor lack of real education. Welcome to America, where we can’t be honest about the most essential and basic component of what it means to be human, because that means we have to talk about *whispers* sex.

“‘We Have No Choice’: One Woman’s Ordeal with Texas’ New Sonogram Law”
This is important. This is the first article I’ve read about the direct result of all these “laws” and “amendments” that are being tossed around in regards to abortion. It’s not about a hypothetical situation. It’s not someone’s opinion. It’s not about a conservatives and women’s rights. This is one woman’s story of her wanted baby and her unwanted abortion and everything that falls in between.
I just don’t understand how anyone could be on the other side of this issue after reading her story.
I will always reblog this story… Always.
