On The Other Hand…

Today is a super busy day, but I’m gonna try to blog my little heart out anyways. I’m not much of a debater (I take arguements way too personally), but I love when other people take a different spin on a highly popularize news story like, say, the Eliot Spitzer debacle. Instead of getting caught up in the drama of the actual events, the author takes this opportunity to look at the greater issue of scandalizing sexuality.

Each tale varies greatly, as an all-star list of authors tackle sex and politics. I laughed my way through Mistress … Continue reading Sex For America – Politically Inspired Erotica

Big Gay Debate

The gay-rights movement reaches a milestone Thursday when its agenda is the subject of a televised Democratic presidential forum. Yet many activists — craving bolder support for same-sex couples — view the unprecedented event with mixed emotions. Though pleased that all the candidates of a major party are courting their votes and endorsing the bulk of their political wish-list, they are frustrated that none of the front-runners is calling for legalization of gay marriage. The forum, to be held in Los Angeles, is co-sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay-rights group that has become increasingly influential in Democratic politics, … Continue reading Big Gay Debate
