Here we are again, for the third time. It’s Sex Week, ladies and gentlemen, that time of year when the community of this magazine gets together to frankly post about the most human thing we share – sex.
No matter what kind of sex you’re having, watching, reading about or talking about, it’ll be covered here this week.
When I started at TNGG as a writer, it was for Sex Week 2010. I was amazed by how honest, funny and real the other writers were and it was what convinced me to become a part of this vibrant online scene. This generation is the one that grew up in the midst of the sex in entertainment debates of the 1990s. It was us who grew up in the era of gay rights and bucking heteronormativity. We’re the generation that organized Slut Walks around the world to stand up against rape culture. We’re the ones who became so desensitized to sex on the internet, literally nothing shocks us anymore after 2 Girls 1 Cup.
Ultimately, those are good things.
We can intelligently discuss and debate sex without feeling like we have something to hide. It’s important, too, because healthy sex is something that unites us, it’s something we strive for, and while love and relationships with others are a big part of sex, obviously, in the end it’s up to us as individuals to be comfortable with ourselves, our fetishes, our likes and dislikes, our sense of humor and sense of right and wrong.
This week on TNGG, you can look forward to smart and sassy writing about sex and everything that comes with it, from birth control to education to pop culture to new technology.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Share it if you like it, leave your thoughts and comments, and most of all, be respectful of others.
As always, thanks for reading.
