50 Shades of Grey Review

Posted by Janice Lane on Wednesday, September 12, 2012,

   So, I have decided to read ’50 Shades of Grey’ because everyone and my mother (literally) is reading it and I didn’t want to be left behind. I want everyone to know that this was against my better judgment. I am not a critic or reviewer by nature, so I will just list some things that didn’t seem quite…right about the book, as well as any positive things I took away from it.

  •            Overall I am not impressed by the writing style, it is almost juvenile feeling. I know that there...

Losing It

Posted by Janice Lane on Wednesday, June 6, 2012,

A recent documentary that I watched about middle-aged adults losing their virginity has got me thinking about the subject lately. I don’t propose to know the best way to lose your virginity except to say ‘do what feels right to you’. Everybody has different views on this subject, and I invite you to tell me about them. If what feels right to you is losing your virginity to your high-school sweetheart, an escort, or your husband on your wedding night; then power to you. I want to share m...

50 Shades of Grey

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
Everyone seems to be up in arms about the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, i've heard reviews ranging from "it's very descriptive and hot" to "it's the most poorly-written piece of garbage I have ever read". I have decided to jump on the popularity bandwagon and read at least the first one myself. Once I am done I will post a review and let you know my thoughts on the book. In the meantime, if you are interested in buying it yourself, please follow the link below to purchase the books from my Amazo...

Bug Chasers

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
I have recently watched a documentary called "I Love Being HIV Positive", in which an HIV+ gay man comes across the term 'bug chasers'. 'Bug chasers' are men who seek out HIV+ men for unprotected sex, with the sole purpose of contracting the horrible disease themselves. I was so disgusted with the thought of someone intentionally infecting themselves that I had to stop watching for a bit.
The filmmaker baits these bug chasers with an online ad to get to the bottom of this trend, what he find...

Documentary of the Week

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
The documentary I chose this week is Louis Theroux's Weird Weekend- Porn. BBC documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux delves into the world of the male porn star. Most men think this is the dream gig- getting paid good money to have sex with tons of beautiful women. What most men don't know is that it is an extremely hard job, resulting in very few men making it in the business. Louis is a great filmmaker and storyteller, getting right to the heart of the story and in front of the camera, all in ...

Documentary of the Week

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
The documentary I chose to feature this week is entitled 'The Virgin Daughters' and is an intimate look inside the purity movement in the central states. I believe there is a lot that can be taken away from this documentary, but most importantly I believe that the purity movement lacks education on contraception and STI's. I think abstinance is a great idea and theory, but in the end it is a very unrealistic outlook on the sexuality of today's youth. Telling a young person to make a vow for c...

The G-Spot and Female Ejaculation

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
            This post will be taken from a paper I did for my Human Sexuality class in university. I will edit it for presentation and will make my citations available to anyone who asks. I figured that I wrote a few papers that I can use here, why just let them collect dust on my hard drive when I worked so hard on them.
I have had the chance to hear much anecdotal evidence for the existence of the g-spot and of female ejaculation. The amount of personal evidence I have accumulated on thes...

Ancient Greece Series- Religion

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
          Religion is a powerful and driving force behind the lives of many humans. Time in history makes no difference toward the devotion of humans to the unseen celestial forces. Many deities have been worshipped for the many aspects of sexuality, and ancient Greece is no different. There are many gods and goddesses in Greek religion that represent different aspects of sexuality. The goddess Aphrodite represents love, lust and beauty, the goddess Demeter represents fertility while the godd...

Ancient Greece Series- Superstition

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
            The concept of superstition doesn’t seem to have changed too much, just the nature of specific superstitious beliefs. We all have certain beliefs or have heard of some being performed in order to have a particular sex for a child or to ward off evil energy surrounding a union. The ancient Greeks also had their own superstitions, too many to mention them all. The following are a selection of some of the more common superstitions.
          Menstruating women were feared, it was ...

Ancient Greece Series- Nudity in Sports

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
             It would be quite odd to attend a basketball game and watch nude players dunk the ball into the basket, or to watch gymnastics on TV with teens and preteens performing their routine completely naked. Indeed, it would be quite difficult to envision that in the society we live in today. It was different for some time in ancient Greece. Around the early 7th century in Sparta and Thebes, the same time that we see evidence of pederasty, we also find evidence of athletic nudity. It was...

Ancient Greece Series- Marriage

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
            The concept of heterosexual marriage in modern times has many similarities and differences with ancient Greek relationships. Status and wealth were both important factors when considering a marriage. If status and wealth were not roughly equal for both partners, it was not considered a good match for both sides. Arranged marriages were a way to ensure that people do marry within their class, as marriage was commonly thought of as an alliance between families. When it was advantage...

Ancient Greece Series- Homosexuality

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
            On the island of Crete we see the first examples of evidence of homosexuality. This evidence was in the form of a bronze plaque from approximately 650 BCE. Initially historians thought homosexuality to be a safe form of birth control, but soon after that, more evidence in the form of literature and art was found to the contrary. The most common form of homosexuality was in the form of pederasty, which is the love between an adult male and a boy. It must be noted that when this pap...

Documentaries

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
Just posting a few documentaries that i've watched and thought i'd share. All these documentaries are related based on the common theme of acceptance of your body. I found all three interesting and uplifting.

Ancient Greece Series- Prostitution

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
           I have done quite a bit of research on the sexuality of ancient Greeks, combining my love of sex and history is always a good thing. I will be splitting the topics up into different posts to make it easier to read and to pick and choose what is interesting to you. I start off with one of the earliest professions: prostitution.

          Prostitution was common in ancient Greece, especially in harbor cities like Athens. The busiest places in such cities were the places that prostitut...

Just a Few Fun Facts

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
Just a few fun facts about sex, some you may know and some you may not. Reciting one of these facts can break an awkward silence.
‘Shrimping’ is a slang term for sucking on a partners’ toes, related to foot fetish.
In a 1970s Survey (conducted by who I’m not sure) it is stated that 5% of American men admitted to having a sexual encounter with an animal. Another national survey conducted by Morton Hunt found that 2% of women admitted the same. These numbers are lower than previous de...

In Soviet Russia, you castrate chemicals....i'm sorry that was lame.

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
                Recently, I read a new article about Russia having a bill pass 1st reading that would mean enacting harsher sentences for pedophiles including sentences up to 20 years in prison or chemical castration. Of course, this would all be decided my psychologist evaluation and be based on the likelihood of recidivism. After reading this, it prompted me to look into chemical castration a bit more because as far as I know, Canada only does this on a voluntary basis. Chemical castration ...

Asexuality Awareness Week!

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
It is asexuality awareness week, and I think I should talk about the topic a little bit. Asexuality is not often discussed in the media or our personal lives, but it is the same as heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality.  Let me define this for people who haven’t heard of the subject: asexuality is the lack of sexual feelings toward another person, regardless of gender. Some people believe that asexuality is a simple case of individuals who have gone undiagnosed with hypoactive sexu...

Book review...well, a few

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
I have read quite a few books on the wonderful topic of sex, most of them are non-fiction and most of them are quite technical. I have chosen a few books that are good for the general public to read without having to know alot about sex before picking them up. I know many of my readers are quite capable of reading an in-depth book on human sexuality but i've been accused of recommending books that are a hard read unless you know alot on the subject.

My first book was a very fun and informative...

Male Genital Mutilation, otherwise known as male circumcision

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
Recently I read an article in the news about San Francisco trying to pass a bill making the practice of male circumcision on baby boys illegal. San Francisco has always been pushing the envelope on controversial topics such as gay marriage and usually leads the way for more progressive thinking.


Now, we all know how horrible female circumcision is; why would it be any different for males? You are removing skin from a very sensitive organ. That skin is the same as a clitoral hood, most of th...

Welcome to my blog!

Posted by Janice Lane on Sunday, May 27, 2012,
Hello, my name is Janice and just you wait, I will be the next big thing in Sex Therapy and research!

Just a bit about me to kick off the blog:

Sue Johansen is my idol, I watched her as a child and admired her knowledge and ease of which she spoke of sexual topics. As I got older, the interest I had in sexuality led me to do alot of independant research. With time, I realized most people didn't have the knowledge that I had aquired. I was a source of information for friends who had noone else t...
