Shattering the sexual skyhook: A review of Numenera’s Love and Sex in the Ninth World

For a genre made up of nothing but imagination, many roleplaying games (RPGs) have shown a startling lack of it when it comes to reimagining social relations. Instead of giving players something wild and new to sink their teeth into, the escapism has always had a rather reductive and puerile bend to it at its worst when it comes to gender, sex, and even race. The construction of all the foregoing in most roleplaying games takes the shape of what I call a “skyhook society,” a world with social relations that are not well supported by what the history, lore, magic, or culture of the setting would make possible. If the world is clearly patriarchal, as many are, ...

CLPP 2011: Sex Positive Feminism 101

Feminist movers and shakers focused on contraception, HIV/AIDS/STI prevention and sexual violence can benefit from pro-active strategies for incorporating the wide range of human desire and the positive benefits of sexuality into their work. How do the lessons of the sex-positive movement apply today? This workshop will introduce participants to the vibrant history of sex-positive feminism as a response to the exclusion of women’s desire and sexual autonomy in feminist understandings of oppression, and help participants develop practical sex-positive skills as educators and activists addressing sexuality and health issues.

I was so excited to be present for this panel on sex positive feminism, led by Jenna Mellor and Meredith Zoltick of HIPS, DC. They opened with an ice breaker exercise ...
