Becoming Orgasmic

I find it funny just how much I enjoy science blogs, especially since I can’t grasp the basic rules of science. Nonetheless, this is one reason why the sciences appeal to me so much: Becoming Orgasmic — A Chat With the Director of the Kinsey Institute, Dr. Julia R. Heiman.

It is surprising that the same kinds of arguments are made even though they don’t hold water. The same kinds of accusations are made about what is good and bad about sex research even though we need to know more for everybody’s sexual health to have a society that works well in this area. We’re not very good in that in the United States. We have a very high teen pregnancy rate. We’ve got a relatively high STD rate even though it has dropped a lot. These things shouldn’t be happening in an industrialized country that has good information available to it. That those messages that would protect people don’t have an easy forum can be frustrating

    This interview covers soooo much. But I think what is most important to point out to the anti-KI wingnuts out there is:

    I think abstinence is a great idea. I’m a little worried about abstinence only and never giving any other information. Unless that has been proven to be the best system and best outcome for young people.

    No one is arguing that abstinence doesn’t work. It’s the abstinence without real education that leaves our youth ill-informed and disposed to bad decisions.

    Lauren, didn’t you know that Kinsey just gave a scientific gloss to his anti-family, anti-marriage agenda? You’re practically endorsing that sex-crazy pervert!


    Actually, great interview.
