How Does Submissive Sex Work in Age of #MeToo?
CAN THERE BE BALANCE OR JUST HYPOCRISY?
FEMINISM #METOO ANALYST:
Karen Straughan is a spokesperson for Men’s Rights Edmonton, and a contributor to AVoiceForMen.com. She is a prominent Men’s Rights Advocate who came to public attention through her infamous YouTube channel titled “GirlWritesWhat.” She is a mother of several children and a published writer of Erotica novels.
“Like all of us in the throes of #MeToo, I have been taking rigorous inventory of my sexual history, rolling back the tape on past highs and lows: the disturbing teenage experiences no longer chalked up to miscommunication, those times I gave in because it was easier, some unwanted advance successfully fended off.
And then there are the memories of being brusquely, and without permission, pushed up against a wall — and loving it. In fact, those were the steamiest moments I could recall. I wondered if I would ever experience such an unscripted embrace again — and then immediately worried: Did my secret desires make me a traitor to #MeToo and what it stands for?No, according to Michaela Boehm, a sex and intimacy therapist and psychologist; they make me pretty normal.>Her 25 years as a counsellor have taught her what many women and men privately know, but are now too afraid to admit — the same truth that the success of “Fifty Shades of Grey” tells: Many women like to be dominated in bed. “Not in their lifestyle, not in their career, but in the bedroom, many women would like to surrender,” Dr. Boehm said. This may explain why, on Amazon’s list of best-selling erotica — a medium that, unlike pornography, is mostly produced and enjoyed by women — themes of male dominance tend to, well, dominate.”
