I’m a Submissive Brat and No, That’s Not a Contradiction

on Tuesday, 15 August 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


by Danielle

For Anna, another self-identified brat, this plethora of options allowed her to find her place in BDSM. “I started out identifying as a submissive, but I was always so frustrated in scenes!” she told me. “I started to think that maybe I was a dominant, but I eventually got bored with that, too. It wasn’t until later on that I realized submission doesn’t have to be one-size-fits-all.”

A Very Useful Guide to Sexy Spanking

on Tuesday, 15 August 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates



"Spanking must have a terrific PR person. Though frowned upon as a punishment for children, spanking is currently a super-popular, super-sexy method of “punishment” between two consenting adults. The spanking spectrum covers a lot of ground. At one end are the playful taps you do every now and then, and at the other end is “impact play” (when one person—the top/dominant—strikes another—the bottom/submissive—for sexual gratification). But whether you’re a beginner spanker or a powerful dominant who wants to leave a handprint on your submissive, let’s be real: While spanking is totally normal and fun, it’s still hitting someone. Here’s how to do it respectfully...and sexily."

Talking ‘The Artist and the Pervert’ with Beatrice Behn

by  Stephanie Watson

"A woman who radically expresses her own sexuality, is a scary thing indeed. Knowing yourself well enough to know what your sexuality should look like means knowing your body. Knowing your desires, your fetishes, your wishes. That ultimately leads to knowing yourself, owning your past and present, shaping your future. It also means being aware of your boundaries and no-gos. So expressing your sexuality as a woman is a very powerful statement that you know who you are and what you want and don’t want. Why would a patriarchal society want a woman to be in her power, to be in the know of herself and to protect her boundaries? These women are trouble!"

Is N.Y.C.'s kinky side in jeopardy? Lawyers prep for Supreme Court battle to save it

New York Business Journal

by Anthony Noto

"The most important thing," Dubno added, "is New York is losing a lot of its flavor and diversity. This is a city where we tolerate different views and perspectives, and when you start restricting access to information and closing down small businesses, that changes the landscape of New York City — makes it less unique."

Belgian law professor wants a legal status for polygamous households

on Wednesday, 09 August 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

The Brussels Times

by Andy Sanchez 

In Flanders, there are 27 000 people who define themselves as “polygamous”, people who have a romantic relationship with more than one person at a time.

Frederik Swennen, professor in family law at the University of Antwerp, argues for there to be a legal protection for these people. Polyamory, can take several forms, a couple that cohabits while having other relaltionships, a household composed of two women and one man, two men and one woman, or a bachelor with several relationships at the same time. 


“I consider polyamory more strictly, warns Professor Swennen. “My conception is a group of people who live under the same roof and share the same bed. Most of the time, it involves three people, whereby everyone in it has a relationship with the other two. In case something wrong happens, these people do not have any legal safety net at the moment.


The professor wonders what elements could be adapted or included from the usual marriage contract. “Each member in the polyamory could pay bills according to his revenues for example”. “But one could also look in and discuss heritage, he goes on to explain and the right to decide on children, or the right to leave in the event of marriage or death in the family."


However, the real question, is to find out if Belgium is ready to legally anchor these new relationship forms. “The Belgian Minister of Justice, Koen Geens, is currently taking the opposite route, explains Professor Swennen. Rather than looking into proposals that would see the legal coexistence expanded to several people. Geens, wants to limit this to two romantic partners." ...


Co-Op Cafe Expands As Counter-Culture Hub In Downtown Jacksonville

on Wednesday, 09 August 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates



After just over a year in business, downtown Jacksonville’s only worker-owned coffee shop is expanding for the second time.


The Coniferous Cafe co-op wants to position itself as a safe haven for the free exchange of ideas.



University of North Florida students know Angel Kalafatis as Professor Sex. She’s a graduate student and a mentor at the university’s LGBT resource center.


A couple Sundays every month, Kalafatis takes her sex-ed lessons to Coniferous Cafe on the corner of Monroe and Laura streets, where she feels less constrained than she does on campus.


Kalafatis was a major force behind UNF’s Sex Week, meant as half education and half celebration of sexual positivity and diversity. It generated controversy this year when campus conservatives and some parents found panels like “Polyamory vs. Cheating” too raunchy to be officially sanctioned by the university.


She said no one challenges her agenda when she delivers her bi-weekly workshops at Coniferous Cafe.


“That by itself, that flexibility to be that organic and that community-created — I’ve never seen anything like it,” she said.


Her class isn’t the only event filling seats. Regular poetry nights, author showcases and yoga ensure downtown’s only late-night coffee shop is often filled to the brim.


The cafe, which began late last year as an "info shop" selling radical books and self-published pamphlets called zines, expanded early this year to start offering coffee, tea and light snacks.


Coniferous doesn’t have one single owner — workers earn their share after enough time behind the counter. But most days you’ll find community organizer Siddie Friar manning the register.


“We’d like to be a reliable alternative to the status quo of coffee shops and really bring back that 90s grunge feel of the community coffee house,” she said. ...

Don't Let Congress Censor the Internet

on Wednesday, 09 August 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

Electronic Frontier Foundation Action Alert

There’s a new bill in Congress that would threaten your right to free expression online. If that weren’t enough, it could also put small Internet businesses in danger of catastrophic litigation.


Don’t let its name fool you: the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) wouldn’t help punish sex traffickers. What it would do is expose the Internet content platforms that we all rely on every day to the risk of overwhelming criminal and civil liability for their customers’ actions.


SESTA would erode one of the most important laws protecting free expression online. Under current law, an intermediary (like a social media platform or a message board) can’t be held legally responsible for the content created by its users for purposes of enforcing certain laws affecting speech online.


SESTA would extend more criminal and civil liability for sex trafficking to content platforms, thus making opening or running such a platform an extremely dangerous venture. The law would affect any company, organization, or individual that hosts content created by someone else on the Internet: social media sites, photo and video-sharing apps, newspaper comment sections, and even community mailing lists. Small Internet startups would become vulnerable to extremely costly legal threats. So would web platforms run by nonprofit and community groups, which serve as invaluable outlets for free expression and knowledge sharing.


There’s a similar bill in the House. With many lawmakers showing their support for these bills, it’s crucial that Internet users tell them how damaging the bills will be for free speech and innovation on the Internet.


Tell your members of Congress: sex trafficking is a real, horrible problem, but these bills are not the solution.

Ahoy, my kinky mateys! Remember when we told you about that straight-up sex cruise, Desire Cruise, where you can sail your horny ass around Europe and indulge every one of your wildest erotic fantasies?


Well, since one giant orgy in the middle of the ocean is never enough, here’s another: Couples Cruise, which is a 4-night/5-day nautical orgy where 2,000 kinky passengers can leave their clothes and inhibitions on dry land and prepare to make waves on the kinkiest vacation ever.



Dubbed “The Naughty Cruise,” the X-rated ocean liner sets sail from Los Angeles on October 3rd, and cruises along to the “love boat” port in Ensenada, Mexico, before returning back to the City of Angels on October 7th.


4 nights not enough? No problem! Horny guests have the option to join the 3-day "Naughty In Los Angeles" party before the cruise, making for an entire week of debauchery.


And similar to Desire Cruise, this kinky voyage will also feature theme nights, such as “Tropical Night,” where all the horny dads on the ship can break out their hottest floral button-downs, and “Mardi Gras,” which is the perfect setting for guests to get obliterated on Sazeracs and take their clothes off.



“There is a lot of sex on our ships,” the president of Couples Cruise says. “Our cruises get people excited and couples tell me all the time how our Couples Cruises have rekindled their passion and that they had more sex on our cruise with their partner than they have had in months.”


“We certainly do get swingers on board and many of them are looking for other potential partners.” ...
