In this latest interview, I talk with Polly Superstar, author of the new book, Polly: Sex Culture Revolutionary, which details her journey of discovering herself and helping others along the way. Polly is the founder of the famed Kinky Salon in San Francisco, CA, and a sex positive activist.
in the interview, we discussed anorgasmia, the problem with traditional porn, the evils of patriarchy on women’s sexuality, and of course, Polly’s book, which is out now.

A Florida court won’t allow the state’s Supreme Court to hear Chase Ryan Nebus-Hironimus’ case in which the father wants the 4-year-old boy circumcised, while the mother has fought valiantly against the unnecessary mutilation of her son. The mother has been put on a gag order, which is a violation of her First Amendment rights as well as a violation of her right to speak up for her son’s right to choose what happens to his body when he is 18+. She cannot even tell her son that she opposes the heinous surgery.
The father wants the circumcision on his son because that’s the “normal thing to do”. Actually, it’s NOT normal. Having foreskin to protect the penis glans is what is normal — that’s why boys are BORN THAT WAY.
Circumcision is unnecessary, and it’s sick. Circumcision on a non-consenting person is a violation of his basic human rights to body autonomy and self-determination. This case is a prime example of no justice for a child who cannot speak for himself and whose wishes would be railroaded by his ignorant father. Circumcision is sexual abuse, and the Florida judge just condoned it.
The only person who should decide what happens to the anatomy of the male’s penis is the man himself. No parent, no social custom, no religion is more important than what the male wants for his own body.
With the launch of ArousedWoman Magazine happening in the next few weeks, I noticed a theme emerging as I was doing my interviews…. Breasts and Body Image. I’m not sure how it happened, but I’m going with it! I want to do a pictorial feature of natural breasts — small breasts, large breasts, medium breasts, standing up, laying down, on your side, any color, size, or shape (yes, real breasts come in different shapes). Pregnant moms-to-be, breastfeeding moms (no baby in the pic), breast cancer survivors. Uneven, different-size cups breasts. The purpose of this feature is to show real breasts in all their glory, to help stamp out prejudice against women whose natural bodies do not meet a ridiculous standard of beauty (or defy the law of gravity). The feature will be a collage of the submitted photos, so rest assured, your face will NOT be seen in the feature. By entering your submission, you are agreeing to the following rules. RULES:
- MUST be aged 21 or older.
- No bra — just your breasts.
- Aim wide, so I can crop it down.
- Must be high-resolution, at least 1500 pixels wide, at 300 dpi.
- Submitting your photo does not guarantee it will be used.
- If your photo is used, you must sign a photo release.
- There is no pay for using your photo, but you will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine issue.
- Submit your photo and your contact info via my ArousedWoman tumblr.
Thank you, and I look forward to all your awesome naturalness!
