The guiding principles of this site are borrowed from the ten-point list of Basic Sexual Rights approved by the Ethics Committee of the Fifth World Congress of Sexology:
1. The freedom of any sexual thought, fantasy, or desire.
2. The right to sexual entertainment, freely available in the marketplace, including sexually explicit materials dealing with the full range of sexual behavior.
3. The right not to be exposed to sexual material or behavior.
4. The right to sexual self-determination.
5. The right to seek out and engage in consensual sexual activity.
6. The right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion, or fraud.
7. The right to be free of persecution, condemnation, discrimination, or social intervention in private sexual behavior.
8. The recognition by society that every person, partnered or unpartnered, has the right to the pursuit of a satisfying consensual sociosexual life free from political, legal, or religious interference and that there need to be mechanisms in society where the opportunities of sociosexual activities are available to the following: disabled persons; chronically ill persons; those incarcerated in prisons, hospitals, or institutions; those disadvantaged because of age, lack of physical attractiveness, or lack of social skills; the poor and the lonely.
9. The basic right of all persons who are sexually dysfunctional to have available nonjudgmental sexual healthcare.
10. The right to control conception.
If you are looking for adult oriented content specifically created for causing arousal, you’re in the wrong place. People looking for educational resources on sex in general would be somewhat happy here. This site is all about the intersection of psychology, sexology, sociology, and public policy. Where does sex belong in our culture, and where do our attitudes about it come from? Hopefully you’ll find at least a little information about that here. While some content here may be considered objectionable to some parents, it is not written specifically to an adult audience. As anything else that deals with adult themes, parents are strongly encouraged to read through content before allowing their children to read.
About Liz Harrison
As a former political animal turned writer, independent researcher, media personality, and healer, I have witnessed the depths of human behavior for the better part of 35 years. Because I had a very early introduction to politics, I got a head start on dissecting the how’s and why’s of people’s decision making processes.
The adages “politics makes strange bedfellows” and “politics is sexy” are absolutely true, if one knows where to look. That was something I became very adept at early on, which left me with the unique ability to not only listen to what people have to say, but also catch the subtle cues that would tell me what they were trying to hide. Couple that with the fact that I have been well-acquainted with “kink” for my entire adult life, and I am able to offer guidance without judgement on intimate matters.
Now, I choose to use those skills and experience to help people find a path to a positive lifestyle, and healthy attitudes about sex and relationships. Admittedly, politics is an addiction in itself, so I also continue to work on research and writing focused on public policy and laws on sex and relationships.
