Just so all of you know, starting tomorrow and through Sunday, we're going to be a little shorthanded around here as many of us are heading out of town to the sex::tech conference.

Some of our volunteers will still be around, but your wait time likely will be longer for replies from volunteers during those dates.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience, and be sure to remember that you can always help each other! [Smile]

HI Heather,

Hope you have a wonderful conference. I am writing to ping you again about getting some contacts for an internship/volunteer with sexual education or sex-services clinic. I am really interested and hope to hear back from you soon via email

No, heather. You are so so so so kind and so much more. THANK you for taking time out and doing this. This website is on my list to give back to, now and in the long term. A very innovative model for health-related positive information to people.


Secondly, I was wondering- I wanted to hear some comments from you guys on my post on being conceived out of what was pretty clearly marital rape.

Got it, and will send you an email back soon.

I don't actually answer every topic. Somethimes that's about time, sometimes it's because I don't feel able to, sometimes it's because there are just questions/discussions I'd prefer not to take part in, either because I don't think I'll do a good job with them, or because I have nothing new to add to the topic that hasn't already been said.

I opted out of that one because a user had already posted what I would have said, which is that it's problematic to decide for someone else what their sexual or abuse history has been. Not knowing your mother and talking with her, I didn't feel comfortable with the way the conversation was framed, and thought that person's comment said what I would have.

Ok Heather, fair enough and many thanks for the response!

, We don't have a right to put labels on other's and their histories, yet I also have come to see that human beings and our lives experiences aren't something new or different. Knowing what i know about how abuse works and given the 'evidence' - for my own purposes, i know that's a pretty pretty fair assessment. We know what CONSENT looks like and what is not consentual, and given human psychology, it is not that humans are abuse etc in all areas of interaction and yet become very consentual-oriented when it comes to sex.Personality traits esp abuse tends to spill over.

Someone said that it may not be marital rape because my mom just knew that it was expected for her to have sex or give her body to him so she may not look at it that way and thought it was 'expected'. Yet her lack of awareness of her sexual rights and body doesn't make it any less of a 'rape'.
