The Wednesday Weigh-In: sex, lies, and no scales necessary

Happy Humpy Day yall. You know what it is. It’s time for your Wednesday Weigh-In!!

No silly, not that kind of weigh in! This is more like an open thread where we can “weigh in” on stuff. You already know my opinion on everything from the withdrawal method to yo momma jokes, but now we’re flipping the script. Comments have been so incredibly insightful on the site lately, so I really can’t wait for you all to drop some knowledge. For the first installment of the Wednesday Weigh-In, opine on this:

What’s the most honest thing you can say about sex?

If you’d like, you can also say whether or not you identify as feminist. I’m curious about this topic because sex– and attitudes around it– seem to be really closely tied to public discussion of feminism these days, and I wonder if there’s something of a consensus among us, or if there as many viewpoints as there are feminists on this thread. Also, well, I’m just kinda curious. Sex is something that people can experience so differently and personally, yet it occupies so much of the public consciousness in bizarrely disfigured and sometimes disingenuous ways. I’d love to hear more about other people’s truthful impressions and experiences.
