Subtle Desire: Eating (and Loving) With an Open Mind

Written by Aimee Perkins. Posted in Eat Features, Featured Posts, Sex Features, Think

When I was growing up in western Minnesota, ravioli came out of a can and was made by Chef Boyardee.  That was as close as I was ever going to get to haute cuisine until I was in my early thirties and finally ate ravioli made by an actual chef.

Rather than being plopped into a bowl and thrown in a microwave Boyardee style, this pasta broke open between my teeth and quail egg filled my mouth with its warm, silky ooziness, blanking out everything else..  I closed my eyes. I moaned, out loud, and I licked my lips.

Canned ravioli does not elicit that kind of response.

The feeling lingered, warmth spreading into my hands, my feet. I felt flush. I wanted to enjoy it for a little longer by myself. That one bite of food made me so aware of my body my entire interior voice turned off. It was pure sensation. That had never happened before.

Hold on, that sounds like something more than good pasta.

Jiggle is Hot: Exploring Sex in a Fat Body

Written by Ragen Chastain. Posted in Featured Posts, Fierce Fatness, Sex Features

You can’t go online or get groceries without being bombarded by articles about sex and insecurity. Compatibility quizzes, things he wants you to know, things you’re doing wrong, how to look good having sex. I even saw an article recently on how to burn more calories while you’re having sex.

Now we have to “earn” every morsel of food by working out and we have to earn our orgasms through calorie burning as well. How is it romantic to be like “Hold still dude, I’m trying to get my third set of tri-presses in!”

Not only is most of the information hurled at us about sex completely heterosexist, but it serves to tell women that our bodies are not, and probably never will be, good enough.

Jessica’s Blog: On Feminist Porn

Written by Jessica Young. Posted in Jessica's Blog, Sex Features

Porn-mag-in-hedgeThe first time I saw a porno mag I was probably in fourth grade. Sex was pretty invisible to me; I was still grossed out by seeing my parents kiss, I hadn’t yet hit puberty, and my crushes on older boys at my church involved fantasies of holding hands and listening to New Edition and Tevin Campbell. I had no interest in anything sweaty or naked, and wouldn’t have known what to do even if I had been interested.
