I came across this article the other day:

I never really expect much from what's on xojane, but I just don't get this. It's like she thinks because I'm sex-positive that I think that sex is awesome all the time no matter what. I label myself as a sex-positive feminist, and I agree with a lot of the points she's making. It seems to me that she's taking on the label of sex-negative in an effort to go against the grain.

My take on sex-positive feminism is this: if no parties are hurt, it's enjoyable for whatever parties are involved, it's really none of my business what anyone does. I don't support things like pedophilia or zoophilia, because that obviously is illegal and consent and parties may be hurt. I don't consider sexual sadism to be necessarily a bad thing, as long as everyone involved wants to do it and agrees to it. Being sex-positive doesn't mean that I support any kind of sexual activity blindly, I critically analyze individual situations and my judgments are usually on a case by case basis (except for things like pedophilia, that's pretty much always going to be a no-no.)
