New Taboo Tab: Sex, Lies and Storytime

The Taboo Tab is a a community of writers and readers bravely putting faces and stories to subjects society seems to skip over.

This month, that subject is sexuality. Whew. Not exactly a small topic. And it’s a serious one, too–just look at what has been in the news this week.

This is a powerful group of stories that together show the complexity and diversity of a notoriously challenging area. There are stories about judgement, outlooks, and experiences. Slut. Prude. Abstinence. Rape. Conversation. Diversity.

As Alex Crane writes in “The Zombie Effect“:

I live and work in a world where sex seems to be both capitalized and whispered at the same time. “Look out, the SEX is coming!” (pun? maybe.)

These twelve writers are moving the conversation into the real world.

Slut.
Slut.
Prude.
Prude.

  1. What a fantastic group of articles- thanks to all the authors. I shared this and I hope it gets shared many, many more times. I’m lucky to have a core group of friends who we can share anything with and be free from fear of judgement, but I always get rude awakenings when I forget how the rest of the world can be. We live in a world where we have shitty stories like this- but it heartens me to know that we also live in a world where brave people aren’t afraid to share these stories, letting others connect to them, know they’re not alone and hopefully opening other minds along the way.
