From Cory Silverberg, your Guide to Sexuality
This week's newsletter is about language. Well actually it's about fetish sex, fertility, technology, and penis rings. But it's also about language. One of the cons of having so many more platforms for public discussion is that it's become even easier for us to forget how the language we use, the way we talk about things, matter. When everything online is just considered "content" it's easy to ignore that what you talk about is inextricable from how you talk about it. When it comes to sex most people are so relieved to finally get to talk about it at all, that the nuances of language can feel less important. Fair enough. But it comes at a cost, and while we all pay it, some of us are more impoverished by it than others. ~ Cory

What Is Fetish Sex?
When you think of the word "fetish" you probably think of sex. But there's an important difference between fetish and sex, and between having a fetish, and engaging in what might be called fetish sex. It may not be front page news important, but ask yourself, who decides what goes on the front page?

Can I Get Rid of My Fetish?
An About.com reader writes about their particular fetish, which they feel is getting in the way of them finding the partner they want, and having the sex life they imagine for themselves. After a lot of hand wringing (not their fetish) they just want to know if there's a way to get rid of it.

Sex Research: Size May Matter, But Not the Way You Think
Forget penis size, and stop reading those advertisements that tell you your labia are too big, the newest measurement of interest is AGD, or anogenital distance, and it suggests that size may matter but not in a way that will matter for everyone.

Profiles in Sex Tech: Treviny Marie Colon
When Treviny Marie Colon found out about Scenarios USA's contest called What's the REAL DEAL about masculinity she was inspired to write a screenplay about sexual orientation, identity, race, class, and culture in New York City. As one of three winners, Colon's screenplay was brought to life in collaboration with Hollywood director Joel Schumacher. Colon and her fellow winners will be the opening keynote speakers at Sex::Tech, and she took some time out to talk with me about filmmaking, homophobia, and looking at the Man in the Mirror.
