Why Is Canada Trying To Protect Its Sex Workers By Hiding Them In Dark Corners?

This week, the Canadian government proposed a raft of changes to the way that its legal system treats the sale of sex. A bill entitled C-36 has now been passed which is designed to shift criminality away from sex workers. The C-36 bill outlines various new restrictions as to where sex workers  in Canada are allowed … Continue reading

Don’t Knock Masturbation – It’s Sex With Someone I Love

Tom Daley Admits To Dating A Man, So The Whole World Screams Gay

This afternoon, British Olympic diver Tom Daley made an announcement. It wasn’t ostentatious or showy, it wasn’t designed to silence dogged rumours, or further his own celebrity.

Is The Male Feminist Nothing But An Oxymoron?

Male feminist – two words that don’t look, sound, seem or feel like they should be spoken together. Surely, putting these two words together creates a vicious oxymoron. It could even be argued that these two words are direct opposites of one another, that they should never be spoken together. It’s not true, but it’s … Continue reading
