Sex for fun and non-procreation!

In this world, we can't get away from religion. We've been exposed to false information regarding contraception failure rates and experienced the STD scare tactics. Some of us may even have gone through abstinence-only sex education!

Here in Secular Sexuality we will discuss:

-sexual health in light of peer-reviewed science
-safe for work guides on safe(r) sex (or links)
-questions that would shock the religious

I've always thought that it's a very fine line that must be walked like a tightrope when talking about certain behaviors that can make a girl more likely to be raped. It's incredibly frustrating too. The ad is 100% correct to point out that drinking heavily and leaving with strange men can increase your chance of being raped. Susan is right; she didn't deserve it, yet her lack of good judgement could certainly be considered a contributing factor.

I've found in past discussions on this topic that an analogy works well to illustrate the point:

If I were to walk through a bad neighborhood at night counting $100 bills, how much higher are my chances of being robbed than if I took the money straight home in my car and put it in my safe? The odds of course would go up exponentially. Does it mean that I deserved it? Of course not. Did my behavior contribute to it? Absolutely. People would tell me I was a dumbass to do that. Granted this is an extreme example, but it illustrates very well that a little bit of forethought and good judgement can prevent us from being the victim of a violent crime, sexual or not.

I must admit, the ad did irk me a little.

Comment by Susan Stanko on December 9, 2011 at 2:06pm

I guess, if you want to be technical, it is blaming the victim.  Doesn't make it any less true, however.  Because, I don't care how drunk you are, it doesn't mean she deserved it.

Eh, I don't see the problem. "There are a lot of assholes out there who will rape girls. Help keep your friends safe from them." I don't see the assignment of blame to the girls, in that ad.

On the subject of breasts, did you see this startling medical news?

That is the odd thing.  My Breasts are too dense.  I would have thought that I would get to wait as well.

Schoolboy humor many years ago in a Catholic school: "Have you met the new girl? Her name is Virginia. We called her Virgin for short but not for long."

Comment by Susan Stanko on December 6, 2011 at 6:04pm

I had my first mammo this year and even with the controversy of when women should start, I'm 40, the report said I should come back next year.
