Let's Talk About Sex, Baby

Spinderella cut it up one time...

Seriously, though, let's talk about sex.  Here at QZAP we're often talking about it in it's myriad permutations.  While we're about as sex-positive as it comes, there's one thing that we just can't hang with.  That's this whole "abstinence-only" crap that's been pushed on our young folks, both queer and straight.  It's dangerous in that NOT talking about sex leads to higher rates of STIs and HIV infection, unplanned pregnancies and contributes to and exacerbates both shitty patriarchy and rape culture.  So we say, FUCK. THAT. NOISE.

Among the many zines that we have in the archive that talk about sex and safer sex is Queersafe #1.  Queersafe is mainly focused on the prevention of transmission of STIs, but also very simply and concisely answers questions about queer and trans* identies, how to use condoms and dams as barriers, discusses consent, and has a great page and illustration about masturbation. So let's get it on!
