Sexing Up the Christian Conservative Religious Right

Conservatives are getting down and dirty to spread their social agenda

An unlikely trio of the erudite Parabola, New Agey Magical Blend, and the gal-respecting Ms. have sported sex covers recently, and there's plenty in each that's provocative. In Parabola, Jacob Needleman ponders the much-hyped but illusive 'sacred sex,' and wonders whether the cultural obsession with sexuality has more to do with a cultural starvation 'for a certain kind of energy. . . . It has less to do with some other, indefinable attentiveness toward each other, even confrontation sometimes.' Among several sex features in Magical Blend virtual reality wizard Jaron Lanier disses virtual sex: it implies that sex is a 'media experience, as opposed to a mystical communication between people.' And in ' look at 'how women are redefining sensuality and pleasure,' Greta Christina explores the counting game (c'mon, we've all done it), and what qualifies as a notch. While hets have long debated whether oral sex 'counts,' Christina's notch might include a mutual lascivious grin. Or does it?
