Yep, it's happening again: "child porn" charges are being used against the people they're supposed to protect. 2 North Carolina teens hit with child porn charges after consensual sexting:
Whats strange is that of the five charges he faces, four of them are for taking and possessing nude photos of himself on his own phonethe final charge is for possessing one nude photo his girlfriend took for him. There is no evidence of coercion or further distribution of the images anywhere beyond the two teenagers phones.
As the article also points out, it is legal in North Carolina for both of them to have sex, just not possess naked pictures of each other.

Bettina Arndt: The growing male sex drought:
Surveys from across the world are now reporting dropping sexual frequencies, more celibate marriages and an increasing gap between male and female sexual desire with even young women reporting loss of sexual interest.
Arndt links to a PDF of an article that she wrote for The Weekend Australian (that, alas, doesn't seem to be available in a more friendly form) which quotes Osmo Kontula:
"Why was there such a decline in intercourse frequency in the 2000s? Theres been a 10 to 15 per cent drop in people of all ages who say theyve had sex in the last week. People are now having less sex than in the early 1970s and the greatest decline has been for young people, those aged 25 to 40."
Kontula looks like he's got some fascinating papers. I'm interested in how this might tie into some of the demographic shifts happening in Japan (that will probably make their way over to the U.S. and Europe of those haven't started happening already)...

What The Rentboy Raid Tells Us About The Gendered Rhetoric Of Trafficking:
Reading the press release, I was immediately struck by its use of rhetoric. Unlike official statements around the crackdowns on Backpage and similar services that are known primarily for advertising cis women sex workers, no mention is made of Rentboy aiding the nefarious work of sex traffickers. As well, unlike in most sex work raids, no mention is made of anti-trafficking organizations reaching out to supposed victims. It is a loud and curious omission given that police find it impossible to talk about sex work at all these days without discussing trafficking.
Edit: Will the Rentboy.com bust be the Stonewall of sex work?.

Sex and Satanic Abuse: A Fad Revisited.
I stayed silent on the sidelines, observing all this foolishness but displaying a cowardly distaste for controversy. As Chair of the DSM IV Task Force, I had a bully pulpit to point out the utter craziness of the fad. Instead, I justified my passivity on the grounds that it was not really my fight and that getting involved might compromise my neutrality as DSM IV Chair. These were lousy excuses considering that innocent people were going to jail and kids were being traumatized by fake therapists who professed to be experts in childhood trauma. My priorities were all screwed up.

Fascinating interview with Michael Moorcock on the occasion of his turning 75, rambling through "real" genre, sexual culture, gender politics, Tolkien...
Back then, I was unaware of gender politics, he confesses. We simply didnt have the vocabulary to deal with those inequalities. When I think about it now, I was able to live and write because of someone who later turned out to be a prolific writer, who wrote a couple of bestsellers. But she didnt write anything apart from the odd short story until after I left. You have to address that and you think, Christ, I was a bastard.

Yesterday, PhDecay @PhDefunct tweeted:
What is the maximum amount of money your doctor could make in payments from drug companies before you would start feeling uncomfortable?
In this era of advertising paying for everything, I thought that was an interesting question: because, like education, the customer is not the payer, there's a pretty strong externality here....
Anyway, this interesting bit on Flibanserin ("the female Viagra™"™) today reminded me of that:
New (and free to read) in JAMA: Evaluation of Flibanserin: Science and Advocacy at the FDA http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2389384
Hypoactive sexual desire disorder: inventing a disease to sell low libido -- Journal of Medical Ethics http://jme.bmj.com/content/ear...8/medethics-2014-102596.abstract
A loud handful of sexmed MD proponents of #flibanserin received at least $1.5mil in industry payments combined from 8/2013 to 12/2014.
After looking them up in https://projects.propublica.org/docdollars/ it is hard to see any of the flibanserdocs as credible on the topic of pharm interventions.

This show, these people, its a disaster in my life, said Kamylla, who spent weeks waiting for the promised assistance, quickly running out of money to support herself, her husband, and her children. They gave her a $200 fee and then did not follow through on promises of medical, dental, housing, and employment assistance, she told BuzzFeed News. I kept on calling them, and nothing happened.
Yep: "Anti-trafficking" organization exploited women and then abandoned them. This is a pattern. And now that they've outed her, she can't do sex work any more because she'll be immediately busted. And was.
