We talked a lot about transparency in our recent list of the Top 10 Good Men in Politics.
Now, to put our money where our mouth is, we’re going to share what we’ve learned about you and your fellow readers so far (based on your story preferences). You’re pretty into sex. It’s OK, so are we.
But not just in a baby-makin’ way. What’s fascinating to us is how sexuality is changing in the Facebook age—social mores, gender roles, issues of responsibility—and how beneficial it is to take these issues to an open forum and open up a dialogue.
In her recent essay on vilifying men’s sexuality, Clarisse Thorn argued that “our culture hates sex, no matter who’s doin’ it—even vanilla, consensual, heterosexual, private sex between cute, white, married adults is hard for some folks to acknowledge.” As scary as it is for some, we’re happy to see that our wonderful readers are so willing to open up.
We gambled that there was a market for people who wanted to “talk about sex without selling sex,” and you guys are proving us right.
So a midday thanks to everyone, and may the conversation continue on!
