Valentine's day coming up.

We have tv ads for Ann Summers at 9pm.

We have LoveHoney ads pushing the "blindfold, whips and delicious pain" approach to "loving relationships"

Great.

no its definately a word for female masturbtion - actually there are loads, "strumming" "flicking the bean" grin

Or a salad.

As this is the feminist section can I just point out that most of female sexuality has been defined by the patriarchy. Much like this relationship in 50SOG. Man defines woman's sexuality (whether she likes it or not)

Notice how the concept of women (normal women, not male fantasy version) controlling, hitting and dominating beautiful submissive men is not being mainstreamed and normalised. Because the would be manhating, wouldn't it.

As long as noone forces their sexuality (or lack of) onto somebody else against their will, it's all fine and dandy

It gives me hope to see that others also think like this WW. I think there is an undercurrent in society and the patriarchy that they want to control womens sexuality.
Whether that be forcing their sexuality on a woman or withdrawing sex and affection from a woman completely and expecting the woman to shut that part of herself down too. And put up and shut up. It is definately a power and control issue.

Pretzel there were many Black Lace books that had that theme running through them back in the 90s before they were mainstream.
But since going mainstream last year there seems to have been a complete change.
