I’m delighted to announce that this Sunday at 7pm CST I will be a guest at Kink on Tap – “the smartest sexuality netcast for the kinkily inclined!”  A longer description of the netcast, from Kink on Tap’s website, is:

Tired of the pulp eroticization of sexuality? Annoyed by the self-aggrandizement of sex bloggers? Want a more thoughtful, heartier, smarter approach to sexuality, society, culture, feminism, and queer activism? These are the droids you’re looking for.

Kink on Tap is co-hosted by Emma and Maymay.  This week their guests will be myself and Solidad DeCosta.  We will be talking about a delightful range of material (all of which can be seen on Kink on Tap’s delicious page), but I’ll give you the topics that I know we’re already talking about here:

  • Why do women leave science and engineering? This is a recent article from Forbes.com, and I’m particularly looking forward to the conversation.  Much of my graduate work was with the Biomedical Engineering department at the University of Texas, and I did quite a bit of reading on the gender gap in the field.  I was also in graduate school when Lawrence Summers, at the time president of Harvard University, made his rather infamous statement about women inherently having lower abilities in engineering than men.  It’s been a while since I’ve had a conversation on these topics, so I’m looking forward to it!
  • State department eases passport restrictions for transgender Americans. This is a great step forward!  Two thumbs up!
  • Hot new Brazilian dance craze called Surra de Bunda! I just can’t give justice to this in words.  You’re just going to have to watch it.  NSFW.  Most certainly NSFW!

So.  I’ve watched that video a few times over, and I’m still not quite sure what I’m going to say about it tomorrow evening!

Is there anything else you’d particularly like to hear my opinion on, along with Emma, Maymay, and Solidad?  Leave it in the comments here or go add it to Kink on Tap’s delicious page if you’re on delicious.  And I hope you’re able to tune in on Sunday!
