I Hate Dating, I Like Relationships

Spiritual

Is Masturbating to Porn Cheating?

Spiritual

by Em & Lo

Readers are always asking us this question, and the masturbator in question is pretty much always a man. Sometimes his female partner writes to us, asking if she's right to feel cheated on. Other times the man himself writes to us, asking why his partner can't understand how benign his porn masturbation habit really is.

The Kink Continuum: How Far Down The Rabbit Hole Do You Want To Go?

Spiritual

by Barak & Sheba

From an innocent tickle and slap on the ass to whips and chains or masters and slaves, the world of kink and BDSM is hardly the same for everybody involved. But what all kinky folk do have in common is the desire for what's at the heart of all kinky activity: creative sexual expression.

Why I Don’t Want to Know How Many Stars Your Ex Gave You

by Rachel Kramer Bussel

These days, you don't really have to go on a first date with a total stranger. You can Google, you can hunt them down on dating review sites, you can get a glimpse into who they are before you ever get a glimpse of them at all. But is this really the best way to get to know someone, or the most accurate for that matter?

What Kind of Submissive Are You?

Spiritual

by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Rachel White's Kinseyesque scale for measuring the degree of your submissiveness offers insights into more than just how submissive you might be in the bedroom.

I rarely take Internet quizzes to tell me what kind of personality I am, whether it’s which Sex and the City character or which dessert I most resemble, but I recently found one extremely intriguing: the submissive scale that my fellow SexIs writer Rachel Rabbit White posted on her website, which I highly recommend checking out whether you’re into kink or not (or aren’t sure).

Creativity, Passion & Strategy

Spiritual

THE STRATEGY OF CREATIVITY

By Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In any competent attempt to deal with the actual principles of modern warfare, it is essential that the measure associated with a mistaken, sense-certainty-based notion of a proper standard of measure, must be discarded. That must be done in favor of what I shall restate here, as a truly Riemannian notion of the transcendental, as this is to be reconsidered from the vantage-point of V.I. Vernadsky's presentation of the universal physical principle of the Noosphere.

SexCult: Self-Medication

Spiritual

by Liz Langley

Because love and sex don’t come from a bartender, dealer or pharmacy (unless you’re banging the bartender, dealer or pharmacist) we often don’t give their chemical powers the fearsome credit we give to drugs we can see. But they do trigger chemicals and those chemicals wield a crazy amount of power.

Spiritually Free or Sexually Promiscuous?

Spiritual

by Modern Love Muse

Sexual freedom is at the core of sacred sexuality. From the outside looking in, it might be confused with promiscuity, so understanding the difference is essential to our journey.

“It is no coincidence that the word sacrum is also the anatomical term for the triangular bone at the base of the spine. Our language suggests that once upon a time, Western Civilization understood the sacred nature of sex. This wisdom was lost during the Inquisition, in fact, one might say that this was the purpose of the Inquisition: To create a cultural shift from sex as sacred to sex as sinful.” Deborah Anapol

Moving to the Right

Spiritual

by Alton C. Thompson

The late (1937-2002) Viola F. Cordova—a Jicarilla Apache/Hispanic philosopher—asserted that humans are born “’humanoid,’ that is with the capacity to become ‘fully human’ through the exercise of all of their faculties.” “Intelligence” is one of those faculties, but so are the emotions, “for example, guilt, which calls us to rectify what is wrong, and sympathy and empathy, which call us to be aware of the other as someone like one’s self. Humans have many qualities that must be fostered for one to become fully human.”

Can Angry Sex Save Your Relationship?

Spiritual

The place of anger in sex has been widely debated. Is it a great release of tension, or just a way to avoid actual resolution?

By Anna Pulley

Veronica Monet briefly surveys the instruments on the floor nearby before choosing a two-sided paddle, soft fur on one side, hard, black leather on the other. In front of her stands a middle-aged man in nothing but a leather thong, wide-stanced and back to the audience, ready to receive his punishment in front of a group of total strangers.

Many ballsy women are afraid to say 'Please do this' or 'Don’t do that' in bed. Here’s what some women are really thinking.

Why Do Women Feel Bad About Doing Things That Feel Good?

Spiritual

Women feel greater guilt about looking at porn than do men. Why are they primed to feel bad about pleasure?

By Liz Langley

The first time I rented porn alone I wasn’t really alone. There were other customers in the store, a small chain, popular in the days before Blockbuster had swallowed and sanitized most neighborhood VHS rental outlets. Back then most video stores had a back room where you could find adult films, typically separated from God’s wholesome sunlit earth by a set of white, swinging saloon doors, so that you'd feel like a big sex outlaw just by swaggering in. Which you never did. You skulked casually past a few times before sidling into the pervert annex and getting knocked in the face with an array of filth beyond your wildest dreams.

Fairy Tale Lust

A Time to Weep, A Time To…

Spiritual

In 1944 our mother married our father, a fresh seminary graduate and moved with him from Ohio to eastern Montana. She was twenty-two, bright, pretty, and funny. Besides her upbringing in a loving, pious, church-going family, she probably knew little about what her role as a minister’s wife would entail.

At her first ladies aid society meeting she found out that they started each session by having everyone recite a Bible verse. Taken unaware, she quoted the shortest one she knew, “Jesus wept.”

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
-Thomas Paine, founding father of the U.S.

Once there was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time is called the Dark Ages.

Thinker's Quote

One often contradicts an opinion when what is uncongenial is really the tone in which it was conveyed.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
