Will This Become the Gold Standard for Birth Control?

0

gold

A few months ago, we told you about RISUG, a promising male birth control method in which a nontoxic polymer is injected into the vas deferens, sterilizing sperm. Now there’s another birth control procedure for men that’s proving its mettle in Chinese laboratories.We’ll let Popular Science explain:

The method requires researchers to inject male mice in the testes with a mixture containing nano-size rods of gold. (I feel like there’s a rap song in here somewhere.) Then they aim an infrared laser at the testes, which heats the nano-gold inside. At just the right temperature, the testes are warmed enough to kill sperm cells, but not enough to kill the cells that make new sperm. The sperm death lasts for a certain amount of time.

Are you ready to have microscopic bars of gold injected into your balls in the name of science? Not so fast. Resarchers are still testing on mice, so human trials could be a ways off.

The Curious Case of Playgirl

0

by thepleasurechest

playgirl 

The basic thinking was that by speaking directly to women we could appeal on some level to both markets: gay men would still buy it, since they were fine with, and maybe not even averse to, enjoying something not overtly aimed at them. But that, if we marketed it the other way, the reverse would not hold true: no woman was going to buy gay male porn.

That’s former Playgirl editor Jessanne Collins in a revealing interview with Salon to promote her new ebook on running the famous male nudie mag. Read about the challenges of appealing to a female readership and a largely secret gay following, and about the many hilarious euphemisms for the penis found in the company’s epic thesaurus. ” Purple-helmeted warrior of love” anyone?

Sex Work & the Global War on AIDS

Ten years ago, the United States dramatically ramped up AIDS funding, but the funding came with this dangerous string attached: in order to qualify, non-governmental organizations must adopt an explicit policy opposing prostitution.

The US provides nearly 60% of the funds to fight the global AIDS epidemic, but as you can see from this infographic, aid is often prohibited from going where it is most needed. Namely to female sex workers in the Global South. Can the US fight a war on sex work and a war on AIDS at the same time?

Multnomah County Makes Gender Neutral Bathrooms Mandatory

gender-neutral

Here’s great news for transgender equality. Multnomah County in Oregon has become one of the first in the country to require that gender neutral bathrooms be included in all new construction projects.  County board Chairman Jeff Cogen signed the executive order yesterday in the hopes that it will decrease stigma for transgender county employees and visitors when using public restrooms.

“Some folks have told us they literally have to wait and go home during the day to go to the bathroom,” he said. “Clearly, that is suffering no one should have to endure.”

The decision, which was timed to coincide with LGBT Pride month, has been praised by advocates for transgender equality, and signals a small, but important shift in the recognition of trans rights.

Stoya’s Straight Talk for Aspiring Porn Stars

So you want to be a porn star. Hold up. Before you quit your job, take five to read this helpful wisdom from Stoya, (who is something of an expert).

Unless the whole of civilization as we know it is destroyed, any nude or sexually explicit images will remain available on the internet in some way forever. Decide whether the chance to have sex with that one particular performer or have that professionally videotaped gang bang is worth the potential that every single person you know now or ever will know in the future will see it.

This is good advice and there’s much more at Vice.
