The Truth About Porn: Ex-Porn Stars Speak Out (Part 1 of 5) Podcast: Download (Duration: 7:30 — 6.9MB) Today’s program may not be suitable for some audiences, due to graphic descriptions of sexuality and violence. Listener discretion is advised. Pornography offers viewers a fantasy world that opens men and women up to sexual variety and novelty. But behind the fantasy and cleverly edited films are real men and women, many of whom have traveled dark paths to sell their bodies on screen. All this week on Covenant Eyes Radio we will be featuring the stories of three women who used to be involved in making pornography. Danielle Williams, author of From Porn to the PulpitJan Villarubia, team member at The Pink Cross FoundationJenni Case, team member at The Pink Cross Foundation. How were they introduced to the world of porn? Today they begin talking about their early childhood. Music for today’s podcast is “Set in Motion” by The Difficulty.

Avec “Future Sex”, Emily Witt explore et célèbre les possibles sexuels La New-Yorkaise Emily Witt s’est lancée dans une enquête sur la sexualité des Américains: dating online, porno, webcam girls, méditation orgasmique. Comment vivre une sexualité épanouie hors du couple? Exploration d’une multitude de possibles dans Future Sex. Après une énième rupture, la New-Yorkaise Emily Witt, 33 ans et journaliste (notamment au New Yorker), s’est retrouvée dans une impasse: condamnée à des nuits sans lendemain avec quelques-uns de ses amis et rêvant toujours du grand amour, comme la société continue de nous l’offrir en modèle. Emily Witt réinvente une forme de nouveau journalisme sur fond de Silicon Valley: des sites de rencontres au porno sur le Web, de la méditation orgasmique aux couples qui vantent le “polyamour” (ce qu’on appelle, plus humblement ici, des couples “ouverts”), elle expérimente tout elle-même tout en observant, décrivant, interrogeant leurs protagonistes. Qu’est-ce qui vous a donné envie d’enquêter sur les pratiques sexuelles aux États-Unis? Oui.

Beware Sexually Transmitted Demons - AETHERFORCE “The openness and surrender during sexual intercourse can allow the exchange of attached entities between two people. The thoughts, desires and behaviors of an attached entity are experienced as the person’s own thoughts, desires and behaviors. The thoughts, feelings, habits and desires do not seem foreign if they have been present for a long time, even from childhood. This is a major factor in the widespread denial of the concept and lack of acceptance of the phenomena of discarnate interference and spirit attachment, obsession or possession.” – Dr. “People also pick up entity attachments through sex. If you have sex with someone that has a entity or demon, you will absorb that entity into yourself. – Peter Michael, “Vast beings, living for thousands of years in your terms, make their living ruling and parenting you, seeking their value from you because you have considered yourselves valueless and purposeless. – Eve Lorgen, The Dark Side of Cupid

What Do You Desire? | Issue 16 On a Monday last April, I stood in line at JFK Airport to board a plane to San Francisco. Before me stood a silver-headed West Coast businessman. His skin had the exfoliated, burnished sheen of the extremely healthy; his glasses were of an advanced polymer; he had dark jeans. He wore the recycled ethylene-vinyl acetate shoes that are said never to smell. His fleece coat was of an extraordinary thickness and quality, with a lissome external layer that would not pill. Until I left San Francisco it never went away. My first day in the city I sat in a sunlit café in the Mission District, drank a cappuccino, and read a paper copy of the San Francisco Chronicle that lay anachronistically on the counter. The people of San Francisco were once famous for their refusal of deodorant and unnecessary shearing. At night I was alone, and I would walk down the street listening to sermons in Spanish from the storefront churches and the electronic hum of the BART train below. “Who wants to touch it?”

Make Your Self-Talk Work for You We all hold internal conversations as we go through our days, and sometimes our nights. Psychologists have identified one important type of these inner monologues as “self-talk,” in which you provide opinions and evaluations on what you’re doing as you're doing it. You can think of self-talk as the inner voice equivalent of sports announcers commenting on a player’s successes or failures on the playing field. Unlike that sports commentary, which athletes never hear while they're competing, you can actually “hear” what your own self-talk is saying. Consider what happens after you’ve done something embarrassing. As an example of how destructive self-talk works, consider the following scenario. Let’s turn the situation around now, and imagine the scene but instead, you respond with constructive self-talk. Researchers studying the thinking patterns of people with clinical levels of depression find that their self-talk tends toward frequently and relentless form of destructive self-talk.

Breaking Pornography Addiction Meet the academic who thinks prostitution should be legalised because men need more sex “Trying to stop prostitution through criminalising it is a complete waste of public money. It is bound to fail." Dr Catherine Hakim “Women have equality in the workplace, but they do not have they equality in private relationships,” says Dr Hakim, whose previous book, The New Rules, compared married men to “caged animals”. “It’s a shocking difference: men are twice as interested in sex as women and it is the same around the world. “It is hard-wired into us: men, on average, are more highly sexed than women. “It’s across all age groups, but as soon as you hit 30, the gap starts growing dramatically. Thus Dr Hakim argues older men are drawn to younger women not just for their looks, but for their libidos. “With a 20-year age gap, you get women who have the same level of sexual interest as men,” she says. Photo: PA Hakim argues this biological difference means we should legalise prostitution, a financial trade she likens to a man going to a restaurant for a different dish.

Academics complain research into sex workers in London unreliable | Education Top academics involved in sex research have launched an attack on "seriously flawed" research into British brothels. The academics claim that research into prostitution in the UK published last month by the Poppy Project, which is partly funded by the Ministry of Justice, is inaccurate and unethical. The research in the Big Brothel report "exhibits serious flaws in its mode of data collection and analysis," they warn. The group of 27 key figures in sex work research from prestigious universities across the UK and overseas claim the report was conducted with neither ethical approval nor acknowledgement of evidence and co-authored by a journalist known for producing anti-prostitution findings. The Poppy Project has received £5.8m in government funding and the women and equality minister, Harriet Harman, has publicly endorsed the organisation. The report's findings lend weight to Home Office moves to make it against the law to pay for sex. She called the report a "shocker".

Grupos anônimos podem ajudar, mas é preciso buscar a origem da dependência sexual | Saúde Plena Sônia Eustáquia Fonseca, psicóloga pós-graduada em Sexualidade Humana, especialista em Terapia Breve para diagnóstico e tratamentos de conflitos e disfunções sexuais, observa logo de cara que a dependência sexual caracteriza-se por uma compulsão pelo ato; e não pela satisfação. O sofrimento é inerente. Impregnada de símbolos religiosos, nossa cultura considera profano o sexo que não se destina à procriação. Isso só dificulta o reconhecimento e o tratamento do problema, que não é tão incomum. Sônia pondera também que, ainda hoje, o sexo é visto na nossa sociedade como um ato não voltado ao prazer. A especialista explica que, em muitos casos, há uma propensão ao desenvolvimento de uma compulsão sexual, e a facilidade de acesso faz com que ela se manifeste. Uma característica importante da dependência sexual, assim como de outros vícios, é que o transtorno nunca existe sozinho. Sônia explica que a confusão vai além do grau de apetite sexual.
