Two episodes

This morning's productivity on the backyard deck was brought to me by two episodes of Tristan Taormino's podcast "Sex Out Loud". The first was Dr. Ina Park talking about her book "Strange Bedfellows: Adventures in the Science, History, and Surprising Secrets of STDs". I'm gonna put that one on the reading queue, it sounds fascinating. The episode is at https://sexoutloud.libsyn.com/...cience-history-and-state-of-stds

The second was Dr. Heather Berg on Porn as Work, and that too was fascinating. I used to be a... well... in the words of my father, raging right wing asshole, an Objectivist Libertarian, and even fairly recently I've rejected the work of some Marxist economics with the "how does that even work?", but as I get deeper into the violence that seems to be necessary to extract value from labor, I start to become more aware of the places that violence is used for that purpose.

And how things like FOSTA/SESTA and anti-porn and "protect the childruuunnnn" legislative ventures are often just more deeply entrenching that extractive violence in society.

This was a really cool discussion that delved deep into some of that, made even better by Tristan Taormino's experience with roles as producer, director, and performer. https://sexoutloud.libsyn.com/dr-heather-berg-on-prn-as-work

(You should probably use "Text" mode: URLs will be mostly recognized and linked, _underscore quoted_ text is looked up in a glossary, _underscore quoted_ (http://xyz.pdq) becomes a link, without the link in the parenthesis it becomes a <cite> tag. All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
