In defence of blue jeans

I have enjoyed going to fetish nights in clubs for years. To be clear, I mean fetish-themed nights in night clubs and not dedicated fetish parties or dungeons.One thing I have always had a bit of a twitch about was the dress code at these events. They inevitably include a variation on “black, leather, latex, pvc, goth, cyber, costume, lingerie, military, etc.” By no means to I have any problem with these types of outfits, quite the opposite. But what I do have a problem with is the restricted list. And what is usually at the top of that list? …

New article on Met Another Frog: Who’s Afraid of the Birds and the Bees?

Here’s my latest contribution to Met Another Frog. They’re having a “Family Values” month with lots of great content about sex and relationships and how they relate to bringing up children. I am currently rereading To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time since school, and I read the quote at the beginning minutes after I submitted the draft for the article. As I continue to devour this magical piece of literature, I feel that my own parenting style has been, subconciously, modeled after Atticus Finch this whole time. Who’s Afraid of the Birds and the Bees?

Sexual Spectrum: Kink Engineering

The design and craft of sex is, in my opinion, highly underestimated. When you go into a sex store or shop online, do you take time to consider the artistry and skill that has gone into creating those pervy products? Probably not, I mean, your mind is likely focussed on something else. But take a peek into your tickle trunk sometime and ponder the aesthetics and form of your toys and devices. Mad_Scientist of Kink Engineering took his interest in latex, combined it with some good timing and a lot of hard work, and has created a company leading the …

Playground: Day 2 and final thoughts

All in all, Playground was an interesting experience. The vendors were moved down to the ballroom for Day 2 (all 2 of us), so I got to take in some of the talk that happened. The Activism panel first thing in the morning was very good with Tori Scout reading Wendy Babcock’s last essay on sex work and some of the response it garnered. Michael Erickson and Derek Forgie of Heterosexuals for Same Sex Equality were also great to listen to. I also caught interesting chats on Feminism and Submission and Femme (Re)Volution. Much pause for thought in those for …

Sexual Spectrum: Lusty Day

Work is work is work. Some people sit at a desk every day, some labour and build society’s infrastructure. Some provide sexual services. Why does that always stand out?     Sex work remains stigmatized and marginalized for the many people who choose careers in it.

JP: How did you get into sex work?LD: I think this is one of the most common questions that sex workers get asked because our industry seems so underground, secretive and shady.
