T rying to navigate the world with a mind that renders almost everyone you see either naked or engaged in sexual congress is less fun than it may sound. It is exhausting, in fact, to spend a whole day in extreme cognitive dissonance about whether or not you want to be in flagrante delicto with a TV presenter, simply because she appeared on your screen that morning. We join Marnie on a journey from a place of frightening inner chaos to a tentatively accepting one, when she is finally able to give a name to the way she thinks.
In a Radio Times article this week, she lays the proliferation of sexual violence in TV drama — almost all of it against women, of course — squarely at the feet of the female viewer. Because fear of being raped occupies our consciousness, posits Greer, and imaginary rapes bedeck our fantasies. What it means for a woman to fantasise about violence is quite an interesting fissure in feminist thinking.
There is an epidemic of sexual violence being perpetrated against indigenous women in the Great Lakes region, driven by extreme extraction in the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota and the Tar Sands of Alberta. Whether through fracking, or oil sands mining, or mountaintop removal, the violation of the earth through extreme extraction runs parallel to the violation of the human rights of Native people. We can't be surprised that people who would rape our land are also raping our people.

A study published Wednesday found that women who practiced "extreme" grooming habits, shaving all or most of their pubic hair on a regular basis, are not at higher risk of contracting certain sexually transmitted infections, contradicting past research. The study, published in the journal Plos Onefound no correlation between pubic hair grooming and chlamydia or gonorrhea risk. Past studies, however, have found a link between grooming habits and higher rates of STIs.
A year-old woman from Texas had no idea the unsightly rash she woke up with one morning was actually an STD that had spread to her arms, legs, scalp and torso. For this research, data was collected from female college students who filled out a questionnaire that focused on sexual and grooming behaviors. It also requested information on age, income, sexual frequency and race.
This legislation was introduced with the following rationale expressed in the Home Office consultation:. The offence is provided for by section 63 of the Act. It criminalises the possession of an "extreme pornographic image".
Previous studies have suggested that trimming or removing pubic hair is associated with sexually transmitted infections STIpossibly because of easier transmission through broken skin or because individuals who groom more frequently might have more sex and therefore greater exposure to STIs. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are the most common STIs in the U. Young women between ages 15 and 24 have the highest rates of these infections.
Hypersexuality is extremely frequent or suddenly increased libido. It is currently controversial whether it should be included as a clinical diagnosis  used by mental healthcare professionals. Nymphomania and satyriasis were terms previously used for the condition, in women and men respectively.
