XXY: An intimate and moving drama about an intersex teenager named Alex who has been raised as a girl but now, at the age of fifteen, has to decide which gender they actually want to choose to live as, or whether that's even a choice they necessarily have to make. XXY offers a story about the dignity and strength of youth. Set by the seas of Uruguay, the film strays from medical-realism and instead offers poetry and clumsiness to explore the story of Alex's body, sexuality and self-awareness. Beautiful. Tough. Powerful. An Argentine film.

Director: Lucía Puenzo
Rated: unrated (2008) 86 mins.
language:Spanish with English subtitles

Not Rex: Criminalizing people with HIV doesn't protect public health

This week on Not Rex, Shawn Syms argues: Sexually active people with HIV are not intrinsically devious and dangerous. No more so than all redheads are. Or any other definable group.

Has a person with HIV ever deliberately deceived someone about their status and intentionally, maliciously passed on the virus? Yes. But in Canada, the law casts the net far, far wider than that, locking up people with HIV who've never harmed anyone.

Sasha: Vaginismus and ejaculation

Dear Sasha,

I am 18 years old and still a virgin. I realize there are a lot of people older then me who are still virgins, but it is still quite hard for me to handle the pressure. I do believe I am ready; I am just mostly scared of the pain.

That's because it hurts me to even put a tampon in. Is there anything I can do to prepare myself? Or at least make it hurt less when the time comes? I also have never had an orgasm, so I wonder if there's something weird about that. I often engage in other sexual activities, but never the real thing, and I usually get bored after a while because it never feels that great. Could you please tell me what is wrong with me?

Confused and Worried
