Sample text

ThE madAMe BuTTErfly effECt Tracing the history of a fetish “I can’t compete with an Asian chick,” says the comedian Amy Schumer. When a busty, blue-eyed blond—a type that launched a thousand wet dreams—admits she can’t contend with Asian women, it signals a certain shift in our culture’s preferred sexual tastes. ” But trumping all of that? ” Schumer, creator and star of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, has been described in the New York Times as having a “laserlike focus on sex and sexual politics,” yet her Asian-chick joke merely echoes already hackneyed stereotypes of Asian female anatomy.

If only such rules had been in place in one D&D game I played where the dungeonmaster took his title a bit too seriously and imposed impregnating tentacle rape on all of the players. Bringing consent and dialogue back into the picture, as Germain avers in her Numenera ruleset, would go a long way to preventing players from stoically facing such nonsense during their leisure time because they don’t know how to say no, or know of any sexual alternatives.

Until I read his work, I was fundamentally unable to separate the act of loving from the act of sex: Popular culture discussions and depictions of sexuality, after all, center on who does what with whom. But love enchants us because it is the least mechanical aspect of our lives, the place where we can still encounter spontaneity.
