The question of 'why isn't there more male nudity on TV?' also seems to get asked every so often, mostly from an entertainment perspective but what if that could actually achieve far more? Could it help a lot of anxious and unhappy men realise that they are actually perfectly normal?

21st Century Porn and Victorian Ethics

Lorna Acqua | Posted 01.04.2015 | UK

In 21st century Britain female sexuality is constantly under attack with displays of sexual assertiveness still deemed slutty, laddish and uncouth. Women are constantly judged on how they carry themselves from their social behaviour to their clothing choices.

The No More Page 3 Campaign Is a Victory for Free Speech But Not For Feminism

Robert Sharp | Posted 23.03.2015 | UK
Robert Sharp

At first blush, the success of the No More Page 3 campaign does not look like a victory for free speech. After all, a thing that was being published, is no longer being published. The prudish censors have prevailed, right? Look again... Is the absence of naked breasts from Page 3 a victory for feminism, though? I worry that it is not.

Can We Stop Being Judgemental About People's Sex Lives?

Frances Black | Posted 13.02.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Frances Black

There seems to be a tired, frustrating belief in British culture that sex is something that needs to be kept indoors and not talked about, especially if you're a politician or public figure. Supposedly looking at naked, sexual pictures of people is something that we are all supposed to be up in arms about...

I don't think it should surprise anyone that women's pleasure is not top the list when it comes to pornography in the first place- the fact that it is being banned, just further reinforces what we already know: Porn is made for men.

Becky Hopper

It's true, several types of porn have actually been banned in Britain. We're not talking life-endangering porn - unless female ejaculation is classed as dangerous, I suppose if you squirted in someone's eye, they could go blind, but as women might know, getting certain bodily fluids in your eye might be painful, but it soon wears off.

Enjoying Sex, In Fiction

Richard Masefield | Posted 29.12.2014 | UK Entertainment
Richard Masefield

Our sexuality is naturally (and I do mean naturally) a part of what we are. So fiction has to deal with it in one way or another (and I do mean one way or another). The spinsterly Jane Austen hints of 'intimate attachments'. Charlotte Brontë permits Jane Eyre more freedom of expression with her 'bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh' allusion to intercourse with Mr Rochester.

Facebook Censors Women's Voices

Mia Hansson

Are we not to think that breasts are natural and beautiful even when they are not being used by others? Are pictures of two-millimetre breasts "malicious" and "unsafe", as the automatised messages say? Or is it simply that reality is judged as unsafe by people habituated to porn?
