Stampy Pants Rants: Stop making people scared to talk about being sex positive

I would like to see the guilt of an entire group of people not used any more. Not taken advantage of. It's manipulative, it's emotionally blackmailing, it's controlling and it's definitely not positive.

Think you’re smoking hot? Quit it already

Despite the health risks, there’s an aspect of smoking that many still find alluring and sexy. There is a ‘smoking Mistress’ fetish for a start, and the presence of cigarettes has an undeniable rebellious appeal and denotes a badass attitude. There are ways to still incorporate the ‘sexy’ aspects of smoking into your sex life or alternative fetish or tease session, without the negative impact on your health. How? Well for a start there are many e-cigarettes now available (know as personal vapourisers or ‘vapes’) and other inhalation machines which don’t present the health risks of traditional smoking habits.

Why I really hate the phrase ‘man up’

‘Man up’ assumes that anything relating to femininity is automatically weaker. It is telling someone to become better, become stronger, to become more like a man. It uses masculinity as a measure of strength, not only physically, but in any and every area of life. It assumes that the only way a person will be successful in any particular regard or reach their goals is by adopting stereotypical male attitudes and qualities.

Why The Women’s March 2017 Is Necessary And Relevant

By Cara Sutra: On January 21st 2017, 5 million women around the world marched as a form of protest. To be heard, to be listened to, to be respected.

Censored sexuality: why the UK porn ban is so terrifying

When A Condom Fails: LELO HEX

By Cara Sutra: It’s ridiculously ironic that the first time the world at large heard about LELO’s newest product, it was on April 1st. It’s just a shame the news wasn't also outed as an April Fools that day, so we could all have a laugh and applaud LELO's sense of humour over the LELO HEX.

Stampy Pants Rant: Steak and Blow Job Day

But apparently men have resented this day of love and romance. For now, on March 14th, there has come about Steak and Blow Job Day. I mean, really? That's what men want, is it? Recognition for being SO lovely on Valentine's Day, for deigning to even think in terms of romance, for valuing their relationship for a WHOLE day, that the month after, they need a steak dinner and a suck off session to recover?

For a really alternative sex life this Valentine’s Day, go vanilla

The world has gone bondage mad. As if unrestrained restraint ‘outrageously’ demonstrated on morning TV wasn’t enough, everyone by now will be aware of the grey shaded movie being released on the 13th February. The day before Valentine’s Day. That’s right, it’s another year where we all go 50 shades of absolutely mad about bondage - and don’t forget the jiggle balls or lip balm, come to that. bettie page spanked and bondage in greyWith so much emphasis on being kinky and increasing expectation for adults across the world to be tied up and spanked this Valentine’s Day, it’s easy to feel just a little bit under pressure to perform. This should be the most romantic day of the year, traditionally, and pressure isn’t sexy. There’s really no need to feel guilty if you’re not a kinky type. The world may be Grey-obsessed but as long as your attention is on the one or ones you love that’s all that really matters. After all, Valentine’s Day is simply one day where we celebrate being able to publicly show what we should be feeling throughout the year.

Why Disney prince penis offends me

Every so often a contact sends me some Disney porn Tumblr link, or a sexed up Disney scene on Twitter or by email. There doesn’t seem to be a clear distinction between vanilla and fetish; from the Beast fucking Belle with his great furry wolf type penis to Snow White being chained up in a dungeon and lesbian fucked by her Stepmother the Evil Queen. Gang banged by the 7 Dwarves. Jasmine fucked in chains by Jafar. The Little Mermaid losing her shells. Tinkerbell and her pin-up ass.

8 Things All Men Do During Sex Which Spells The End Of Your Relationship

By Cara Sutra: Can the world please stop caring so damn much about what (supposedly) all men do? Or what all men think? And how, all these things that ALL MEN DO! Or ALL MEN THINK! are immediate and obvious signs that you, as a woman, are unattractive/unloved/neglected/totally shit in bed and should go and live under a rock with only a masturbatory twig for company?

Consensual Slut Project: Proud To Be A Slut

By Cara Sutra: Consensual Slut Project: I am proud to be a slut. That isn’t the same as saying I recognise that I am a woman of loose morals and I don’t care. What I mean is that I have an affinity with the phrase itself and its place and meaning in my life.

Admitting My Privilege And Realising I’m A Feminist After All

By Cara Sutra: It’s International Women’s Day and I’m an angry woman. I’m also a nasty woman, but that’s another story for another day. Why am I angry? Well… I’m certainly angry about the injustices, censorship and abuse women around the world still face despite the fact that we’re well into the 21st century.

World Domination (And Protecting Myself From Hurt)

After asking today what I should blog about next, the first part of this blog post's title came about, for some mysterious reason. Well yes it might seem I've been on a bit of a world domination spree lately. Ok, not just lately I admit, it's in my blood, my nature, my character. I wasn't always this way. I used to be a doormat when I was younger, but times change us and any knocks or bad experiences just callous the heart and make us harder. I have had my share of those, more than my fair share, in fact.

Trigger warnings on books will censor emotional responses in the great reading experience

A recent article in The Guardian reported that trigger warnings have been requested on works of literature, by students in the US. Not children; young adults or adults who are of an age to study classical works of literature that have adult interest and themes. The books in question include such greats as The Great Gatsby (for misogyny and violence), Huck Finn (for racism), Things Fall Apart (for colonialism and religious persecution), Mrs. Dalloway (for suicide), Shakespeare (for pretty much everything). Now, Gove has reputedly axed To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men from the UK's English Literature GCSE syllabus. Personally, I studied Macbeth, Richard the Third and A Streetcar Named Desire for my English Literature A-Level. Pretty much all of the violence. It has been commented that such classic books have topics which may upset or provoke an uncomfortable response.
