After beating its fundraising goals

SF Eater

Last week, Wicked Grounds seemed to be at the end of its rope, financially speaking, announcing it would close for good over the weekend. But that move turned out to be the business equivalent of uttering a safe word. Over 900 devastated customers pledged monthly donations on Patreon, amounting to funding of more than $15,000. According to Mir, that’s enough to save the business, which is currently open with a skeleton crew and limited hours and food options.

'NCIS' recap: 'Dark Secrets'

on Thursday, 11 January 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Entertainment Weekly

Fifty Shades of Grey was roundly criticized by both the psychological and BDSM communities for stating that Christian’s “singular tastes” derived from abuse and neglect, by depicting BDSM as, in the words of The Atlantic‘s Emma Green, “a pathology, not a path to pleasure.” By turning Melissa’s sexual desires into a shocking, shameful secret, NCIS is indulging in the same overgeneralization. At the very least, I wish the show had acknowledged the difference between healthy and unhealthy expressions of this type of kink.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Polyamourous Men But Were Afraid To Ask

Polyamorous men could belong to all genders and sexes, male, trans male and every other definable and undefined gender. If you love more than one at one time and believe in keeping all of them informed, chances are that you are polyamorous. You could also belong to different sexualities – you could be a man loving more than one man, or a man who loves more than one woman.  You could also be a transperson who loves men or women or transpeople or all. For instance, I am a homosexual man and polyamorous, which means, despite being in a relationship with a man, without hiding from my male partner; I could also express love to other men. However, this doesn't mean that I would consider getting into relationships with other men. 

From A to Z, 26 Kinks and Fetishes You Should Know About

L is for Limits

Consent is paramount in kink. If you’re just getting started, or want to slowly introduce BDSM into an existing relationship, both you and your partner should make a list of your soft and hard limits. A soft limit is something that you’re curious about yet unsure if it’s right for you, such as name-calling. A hard limit is something that you are certain is off-limits, such as electrostimulation. Writing out your hard and soft limits with a partner is a wonderful way to get to know another side of one another. Along with implementing limits, it's important to choose a safe word that is not “no” or “stop,” because some couples use such language as a part of their role play. You can always adjust your hard and soft limits the more you explore, so it’s better to lean on the safe side when pondering and discussing what feels right. Always keep in mind that your kinks may not perfectly align with your partner’s, and that’s OK. “Just because you want it doesn’t mean that someone has to do it,” Horn says. Kink is about consent, communication, and compromise.

What a man who did a PhD in threesomes learned about sex

on Tuesday, 02 January 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

Dr Ryan Scoats found that the stigma surrounding three-way flings is falling away


“The overarching theme of my findings would be that threesome sex is very similar to two person sex in that people do it for all sorts of reasons, and have both positive and negative experiences,” he added.  “Likewise, the people that have threesomes are from all walks of life, and are just regular people.”

If Issa Rae were a queer woman, “Insecure” might look more like “195 Lewis,” a show so stylish, sexy, and assured that it has steadily built momentum by word of mouth since its festival premiere over a year ago. Set in the heart of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, “195 Lewis” follows a black lesbian couple as they strive to practice radical honesty in their newly polyamorous relationship. Surrounding them are a group of close-knit young black queer friends, peppered with characters as unique and colorful as the greens and purple hues of every gorgeous frame.

The bot has access to 300,000 criminal court documents from the United States and Canada. With that information, it's able to analyze if a law was violated, and which law, depending on where the events took place. It also asks for written details in an incident report which is analyzed and emailed back to the user along with sections of the Criminal Code related to what happened. Dutt said that the incident report gives the user something with which they can go to authorities.
