It’s 5 o clock in the morning, Conversation got boring, You said you’re going to bed soon, So I snuck off to your bedroom, And I thought I’d just wait there, Until I heard you come up the stairs, And I pretended I was sleeping, And I was hoping you would creep in with me.
You put your arm around my shoulder, It was as if the room got colder, And we moved closer in together, And started talking about the weather, You said tomorow would be fun, And we could watch A Place In The Sun, I didn’t know where this was going, When you kissed me.
Are you mine? Are you mine? Cos I stay here all the time, Watching telly, Drinking wine, Who’d have known, Who’d have known? When you flash up on my phone, I no longer feel alone, No longer feel alone.
I haven’t left you for days now, And I’m becoming amazed how, Your quite affectionate in public, In fact your friend said it made her feel sick, And even though it’s moving forward, there’s just the right amount of awkward, And today you accidentally, Called me baby.
Are you mine? Are you mine? Cos I stay here all the time, Watching telly, Drinking wine, Who’d have known, Who’d have known? When you flash up on my phone, I no longer feel alone,
Let’s just stay, Let’s just stay, I wanna lie in bed all day, We’ll be laughing all the way, You told your friends, They all know, That we exist but we’re taking it slow, Lets just see how we go, Now let’s see how we go.
“Female orgasm is a different story. Shhh, don’t talk about that – it makes people uncomfortable. Think about it—how many slang terms for female orgasm can you think of? Can you make a list? Are there mainstream movies that depict or discuss girls or women masturbating? Although I can think of a few exceptions (Pleasantville, The OH in Ohio), if female masturbation occurs in mainstream films, it is often told from a male pornographic fantasy perspective (e.g., American Pie). Such media depictions suggest that men have uncontrollable sexual drives, (which, apparently, women do not) that must be satisfied immediately by any means necessary. Unlike men’s, women’s sexual desires are peripheral to our conversations about sex and sexuality.”—The Clitoris: Most. Awkward. Discussion. Ever! | SociologyFocus (via neutralsoymilkhotel)
A groundbreaking new report by the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health, Anand Grover, was released yesterday. And it is big!!
In the new report, Grover calls for the immediate removal of all impeding restrictions to abortion, full access to modern contraceptive methods, and complete and accurate information on sexual and reproductive health.
As the International Planned Parenthood Federation explains, “the report examines the disproportionate impact these laws and policies have on those who already suffer human rights violations and the denial of adequate heath care (e.g., women, impoverished peoples) and emphasizes individuals’ right to dignity and autonomy in health-related decision making.”
Having someone this high up basically say that all UN members states should provide safe abortion and contraception is a big deal, and many women’s health orgs are already hailing this as a huge victory for global sexual and reproductive rights and health.
