Sexy Fun? Or Funny Sex?

True to my inability to keep up with current events, I have recently stumbled upon a phenomenon that puts me about five million years behind any self respecting, twenty first century, third grader.

Le Podcast.

Brilliance! Now, instead of exhausting the limits of my contact list whenever I have to walk more than a half mile, I can listen to some good old-fashioned edutainment on my iPhone.

I am a bit like a dog.  I can trick myself into thinking that I’m getting some social interaction by putting on a movie or turning on the radio.  I’m also a Portlander who walks just about everywhere.  So podcasts are the perfect solution.

On top of all of that, I take any and every opportunity to think about sex.

That being said, it should come as no surprise that I am in love with the podcasts coming from my new favorite blog: Sex With Timaree.

She’s smart, she’s quirky, and she’s consciously opinionated as hell. On top of that, she’s gorgeous. If I wasn’t so infatuated with Portland and le boyfriend in Hawai’i, I’d be on a plane to New York three days ago.

A little while back, I started getting tired of reading feminist rants on some of my favorite sex blogs. Don’t get me wrong, I am a devoted feminist and I am all about the rights of the fairer sex, but sometimes I just want to read about sex for fun. Where are the people who are excited about sex and pleasure for the sake of those things alone?

I understand that sex can’t happen for everyone in all it’s glory without sexual politics and those hard-working men and women who are out there fighting for our sexual rights, some of them through blogging. But what has happened to the middle ground? Where is the medium between porn, which is generally a solitary diversion, and ranting? What’s out there for the armchair lascivious who just wants a good internet-read?

Though” Sex With Timaree” doesn’t solve all of my problems with contemporary sex blogs, she brings up another excellent point I’d like to make. Answering sex questions, when you are not the personal physician of the person you are advising, is morally questionable at best.

First off, if you have no medical background, and have specialized in the psychological side of human sexuality, stick to it! Second, even if you are a physician who has specialized in the human reproductive system, you have no way of diagnosing, or properly advising for that matter, anyone who you have not seen nor performed any tests on. So don’t.

Just because you receive letters asking for medical and psychological advice, does not mean that you are qualified to answer them. As someone that people are looking up to as a sexual icon, you would be better off recommending qualified and non-judgemental doctors in the area of your audience rather than providing advice that could potential misdiagnose a serious problem. In one of Timaree’s podcasts, in which she interviews a fellow sexpert, she touches upon this. After that, I was inexorably hooked.

So, let’s talk about sex. I’m not a doctor, a psychologist, or a sex worker. But I’ve done a thing or two, and sex is one of my passions. So why not have a little fun? And leave the work to someone who knows better…
