Queer Sex: Compulsory sexuality and sex-positivity

Read my latest essay on the intersection of misogynistic compulsory sexuality and queer sex positivity in the Sex issue of Ladybeard, a beautifully made feminist magazine available here – http://www.ladybeardmagazine.co.uk/shop/the-sex-issue

 

“The Sex Issue looks at sex – in the sexual, reproductive, romantic, mind-blowing, disappointing, traumatic, formative sense. We are raised to think that men and women are inherently different, that our gender is defined at birth, and that sex is the heteronormative act of penetration. This issue will challenge these assumptions, opening them up with atypical takes on the theme. Art, interviews, poetry and prose will address rape, porn, abortion, masturbation and race from fresh, feminist perspectives. This issue spans the sexual universe from erotica to ecosexuality, via the economic crisis. Get ready for the next big bang.”
