The online newsletter "Sexual Intelligence" has announced its annual Sexual Sanity Awards, as follows. Who would YOU recognize for contributing to sexual sanity in America? * Philip Roth * Philip Kaufman * Peacefire & Peacefire.org * Dr. Elizabeth Loftus * The Free Speech Coalition * California & New York Departments of Health
* NBC's "Just Shoot Me"
The NBC sitcom recently treated the issue of transsexualism with a human, non-condemning touch.
Mr. Roth has written dozens of novels that hold up an excruciatingly accurate, and often funny, mirror to our eroticism, including the masturbation, fantasies, sadism, fetishes, and longings that most of us think are unique to us--and need to stay hidden.
Mr. Kaufman has written and directed films that have portrayed human sexuality as a potent political force, such as "Henry & June," "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and the new "Quills"--which questions if sexual repression is far more sadistic than the Marquis de Sade.
www.Peacefire.org is the pre-eminent website devoted to exposing the myths surrounding Internet filtering software ("censorware," they call it). After documenting exactly which sites were blocked by popular censorware programs--including Breast Cancer Awareness, Focus on the Family, and N.O.W.--Peacefire itself was added to Cybersitter's list of "pornographic" websites.
University of Washington Professor of Psychology Loftus is an expert on memory's unreliability. Her research has exposed the false assumptions and biased methodology that led to the extravaganza of fantastic child-abuse convictions in the 1980s. Her many books, including "The Myth of Repressed Memory," have led to the recent trend of overturning mass-abuse cases around the country: five states including California now bar prosecution based on repressed memories.
FSC lobbyists throughout America protect the public's right to make sexual choices, as they track legislation and educate judges and legislators. FSC's legal team's most recent success helped overturn Attorney General Reno's interpretation of Internet pornography.
New York and California are the first Medicaid programs to say they will cover RU-486 for poor women under all circumstances.
