Your quest is over.      Ms. Marilyn Monroe...had she lived on Bedford Avenue, circa 1999.     Audrey Hepburn, had her Roman Holiday been more of a Roman bacchanalia.      A Rockwellian WW2 worker, had she also maybe enjoyed roller derby.      This sixties' ad...had it...
Nigerian-American novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has a lot of intelligent things to say about the troubling new "anti-gay" legislation up for debate in her home country. As all democratic civilizations bend towards our generation's central civil rights debate, it's refreshing to hear a writer speak out with such conviction. Here's an excerpt from her speech: The new law that criminalizes homosexuality is popular among Nigerians.

  There are some pretty wacky ideas and debates about sex these days, but looking back on Medieval religious and social doctrines makes our sexual culture seem a little bit less complicated. For one, even sexual pleasure within a marriage was considered sinful; it had to be scheduled based on the woman’s menstrual cycle and the church calendar to ensure that both parties experienced as little pleasure as possible.    Another inconceivably absurd and convoluted rules applies to male homosexual sex, which was typically punishable by an impossible...

  In 1949, people were finally starting to think about women’s sex lives. Around 20 years before the Women’s Liberation and sexual education was in full-force, the female orgasm remained a mystery. Without knowledge of the clitoris or the G-spot, many women didn’t experience climaxing, and sadly, many were made to feel “frigid” and asexual because of it.    How elusive and majestic, exactly, was the female orgasm? This illustration published in Sexology magazine in 1949 should give us a clue."As seen by a surrealist artist,” we might...
