The F Word's Sex show!

From sexual abuse to homophobia, from pornography to 'sex-positive' discourse in feminism, and from penetration to female ejaculation, it's The F Word's Sex show!

Women are confronted with an excess of contradictory messages coming from mass media, pornography, and even from Third Wave feminist discourse and what some call 'sex-positive' feminism. How can women navigate those intersections between power, pleasure and ideology? Is female sexuality the primary route towards empowerment? Can we have power and pleasure in sex?

Your hosts Ariana Barer, Meghan Murphy, and Nicole Deagan cover the good, the bad and the ugly, exploring sex and sexuality within a patriarchal culture. Including a how-to guide from resident expert Nicole Deagan on female ejaculation, this show is all kinds of awesome.

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
