Sex in the Public

Check out the new web site, Sex in the Public Co-founded by Elizabeth Wood, Chris Hall and Tom Joaquin, the project is, as Ms. Wood puts it, a “space for readers and commenters and visitors to talk about the sex-related issues that matter to them” and is an outgrowth of her blog by the same name (minus the “.org”). According to the site’s mission statement:
We believe that sexuality is a fundamental component of human life, and that it cannot be excluded from “polite conversation” without losing an important element of democratic participation. We are working to expand the space available for discussions of all aspects of sexuality, so that participants in democratic community life can be fully seen and recognized, can share information, and can become more educated and informed. We also believe that talk about sex needn't always be "serious" in order to be "appropriate" and we welcome playful conversations that focus on the fun of sex as well as serious conversations that focus on things like policy, safety, and identity.
You will find articles, blogs, book reviews, forums and links about sex as it pertains to society, culture, the news, social policy and our everyday lives. It’s all about sex in the public square. Check it out.
