Noah Michelson of Huffington Post Gay Voices: Sexual Liberation Is The Cornerstone Of Queer Liberation

Noah Michelson sex positive

“You know what I can’t understand, and furthermore, won’t stand for? Other gays playing sex police — and it’s starting to happen more and more…. Now that we can get married and queer people having children is becoming more and more accepted, it seems we’ve forgotten that sexual liberation has always been, in my mind at least, a cornerstone of queer liberation. And it seems some queers think we’ve just been having all of this sex and pushing back against all of these sexual boundaries for all of these years as just another way to pass the time until we could become just like straight people. Like, “Hmm. We can’t get married yet. What should we do in the meantime? Needlepoint? Nah. Competitive baking? No. Oh, I’ve got it!” Noah Michelson, Editorial Director of The Huffington Post Voices, in his op-ed piece “I’m A Gay Man Who Loves Sex (And Here’s Why That’s Suddenly A Problem)”

Back2Stonewall is a Sex Positive website and whole-heartedly agrees with Mr. Michelson.

SEX POSITIVE: An approach to sex and human sexuality that embraces the full benefits of sexual interaction as healthy and uplifting, based upon the premise that sexual expression is good and healthy and that societal repression or control of the individual’s sex-drive is bad and unhealthy.
Sex Positive people advocate comprehensive sex education, because even in a free-sex utopia one must still be wary of sexually-transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.Urban Dictionary
