Condom Monologues

I specialize in genderqueer approaches to safer sex and am chief editor at an independent safer sex collective and website. My partner and I launched Condom Monologues in 2008 out of frustration against boosts in world-wide abstinence-only mandates. We felt a strong need for a safe platform to share experiences that lead to dispelling sex myths and raising awareness about healthy, positive sex.

Our project went on the back burner when I pursued a Master’s in Gender Studies at the American Uni in Cairo, Egypt, where I trained in human rights and feminist research methodology. Now that I’ve completed school, I am rebuilding Condom Monologues as a career.  This community is a great  resource to help advance our website.

CM is based on values of education that reflect the diversity of people- to serve all sexes, genders, sexualities, kinks, and relationships with the aim to provide info about safer sex, sexual health, masturbation, toys and contraceptives. The aim is to provide static content of sexuality articles and guides, as well as interactive services in which we monitor a safe/respectful question-answer forum. We are also building a storytelling platform where people can share personal experiences (anonymously) that lead to learning, understanding, healing, and sex-positivity.

I love connecting with other sex nerds & gender geeks. There is much to learn and bear witness; so many stories to be heard! Which is why I am here. I love to chat! So contact me at larawor@gmail.com, or admin@condommonologues.com and you can find me on twitter @condommonologue .  Cheers!

Aimee Bass~ Pleasures LLC..

Hello my fellow sex enthusiasts!!!

I’m Aimee`, I am a wife, mother, and owner of a couple owned and oriented adult lingerie boutique called Pleasures, and sex enthusiast!

Really I’m a pretty down to earth person, I love to hunt,fish, go camping, horseback riding, working on cars and spending time with my family. I dedicate a lot of my time to our store so when we get the chance we play hard.

There isn’t too much that is off-limits for me conversationally, I spend 90% of my time at my store and so day in and day out I am surrounded by sex… lubricants, lotions, books, edibles, lingerie, bath and body products and of course toys and dvd’s. My life evolves around sex.. no matter how you get there, the end result is the same.

It’s the getting there, that we concentrate on in our store. We are a couple owned store so we concentrate on couples, with books and kits and flavored stuff, lingerie, and of course the toys. But it is the process of getting to that point, setting mood, romance, creating a want and craving for another. That is what we want others to be able to experience. There is no such thing as an amazing orgasm if you’re not emotionally into it.

I love being able to answer and help people get the most out of their sex life. That is why I’m here, I want to continue to learn so I can continue to give my customers the level of service and information that they’ve come to expect from myself and our staff.

A day with nothing learned is a day wasted, so lets stop wasting time and get to talking about some mind-blowing sex and how everyone can have it!!!

The Feminist Porn Conference

Feminists have been debating, studying, and creating pornography for decades, and the transformation of feminism, sexual politics, porn, and popular culture over the last decade has broadened the dialogue on this provocative topic. With the resurgence of anti-pornography feminist scholarship by Sheila Jeffries, Gail Dines, Pamela Paul, Robert Jensen, and others, the time has come to hear from progressive, anti-censorship, sex positive, and sex worker feminist voices.

Saturday, April 6, 2013
University of Toronto
a 2013 Feminist Porn Awards Official Event

This one day conference will bring together academics, cultural critics, sex workers, activists, fans, and producers to explore the intersections between feminism and pornography as well as the emergence of feminist porn as a genre, industry, and movement. It will be a part of The Good for Her Feminist Porn Awards, one of the largest gatherings of feminist pornographers in the world. We seek to raise awareness, pose critical questions, and incite dialogue about the shifting landscape of pornography and what roles we can play in it.

How has a new generation of people in the porn industry–who openly identify as feminist and own their own companies, direct and produce their own material, and/or take on politicized identities as sex worker performers–changed the way porn in produced and consumed? What does it mean to be a feminist who performs in, makes, distributes, and/or consumes porn? Are women and feminists working within or against the status quo? How have representations of the female body, gender, and sexuality shifted as a result of feminists and women making porn? How are marginalized women—including women of color, queer and trans women, disabled women, lower and working class women, fat women, and older women—imagined, represented, or marginalized in pornography? How are femininities and masculinities re-imagined in feminist porn? How do performers of color and minority performers address misogyny, racism, and inequality as workers in a predominantly white, male-dominated industry?

We hope you’ll join us!
