In our modern times, a lot of sexy stuff happens on a day-to-day (or more like minute-to-minute) basis. So we’re glad that the Center for Healthy Sex, via the Huffington Post, has put together a list of the 25 best moments in sex and the 25 worst moments in sex of the past year. Let’s take a peek at the center’s big winner and big loser:
BEST #1: Republican Party Loses The 2012 Election
It was a long and contentious election, but in the end the critical mass of voters’ conscience tipped toward social progress, preventing a major rollback of civil (sexual) rights. The Republican Party professes support for less government except when it comes to definitions of rape, LGBT rights, reproductive rights and sexual health care — all of which they’d seek to legislatively limit or deny, with assuredly devastating consequences. Instead, 2012 ushered in four more years of progressive sexuality, during which there will likely be all-important Supreme Court vacancies to fill that are sure to have an impact on sexual freedoms. In related news the 2012 election gave us 20 female U.S. senators in 2013, the highest number ever. Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay person elected to the U.S. Senate. Gay rights legislation prevailed at the polls….
We accept and honor multiple points of view to treat people of all beliefs and faiths. But the two political parties in our country are increasingly polarized, and when one of those parties clearly attempts to oppress the sexual health of its people, we need to speak up.
And what’s the worst, least sexy development of 2012? It’s a good one:
WORST #1: Resistant Strain Of Gonorrhea
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced early last summer that gonorrhea outside the U.S. had become resistant to all but one class of antibiotics, raising concerns of potential mutation into an untreatable “superbug.” Gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported infectious disease in the U.S., infecting an estimated 700,000 Americans a year and 106 million people worldwide….
If you haven’t got the memo by now, condoms aren’t just a precaution against pregnancy and HIV. By absolute necessity, safe sex and the awareness of personal and partner sexual health must be a way of life.
