It's Christmas — the season for making merry, going out and, if you're single, trying to snog people under the mistletoe before the pubs close. So I thought it would be a good time to look at one of the oldest assumptions in the Men vs Women book: can women get sex whenever they want, while men are doomed to wait on the sidelines until our sexual fancy falls upon them? I don't like the bar example. First, and most obviously, it is not universally true. There are women and I am one of them who have walked up to guys in bars, asked them for sex, and been flat-out refused. Likewise I've known men who have been able to get quick and easy sex with very little effort. Second, not only does the bar example prop up unhelpful stereotypes about men that they always want sex , because biology and testosterone and grrr , it also drives a hammer-blow into the self-esteem of any woman who has been turned down for a casual shag. Claiming that women can get sex just by clicking their fingers sets horny women up for a lifetime of disappointment, and gives men a reputation they can never possibly live up to.

SafeToNet has screened more than 65m texts sent since November and found that girls aged 10, rather than teenage boys, as they had expected, use the most explicit and potentially harmful sexual language. The SafeToNet app looks for language indicating sexual talk, abuse, aggression and thoughts about suicide and self-harm. It applies a threat level to each and year-old girls were the most prominent in category 3 of sexual references, which relates to the most explicit and harmful language. In December, it emerged that more than 6, children under 14 have been investigated by police for sexting offences in the past three years, including more than of primary school age. We think it is a rite of passage and is related to that rather than actual sexual activity. SafeToNet also found that while girls in general use more sexually explicit language than boys, boys are more abusive and aggressive, and children fear bullying the most on a Sunday evening. The analysis provides a window into the often hidden online lives of eight- to year-olds. Half of year-olds have a smartphone and ownership doubles between the ages of nine and 10, according to the regulator, Ofcom. Almost half of parents of children aged five to 15 are concerned about their child seeing content that could encourage them to harm themselves, the regulator found. It provides parents with a report about the level of risky language their children are using but does not reveal what they wrote.
Is all sex the same?
She was also the recipient of the Jackie Kirk Fellowship. Sex education in Canadian schools continues to be highly politicized and young people are paying the price. In many Canadian classrooms, factors like inadequate teacher training and discomfort impact what topics are addressed or avoided. Unfortunately, these circumstances mean that youth may not get the information they need to engage in healthy, positive sexual relationships. Meanwhile, sexual health resources flourish online. Studies show that many youth seek out information about sexuality in digital spaces. Young girls and women specifically are taking sex education into their own hands. As a doctoral student at McGill University and a sex education practitioner, I have had the privilege of studying how young YouTubers use their media to talk to their audiences about sexual violence and sexual consent, both in my own dissertation and in collaborative research.
