1. Comedian Amy Schumer doesn’t shy away from talking about “Mostly Sex Stuff.” Her stand up routines and her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, talk frankly about sex. From the interview:

"Most women I know that I’m close to have had a sexual experience that they were really uncomfortable [with]. If it wasn’t completely rape, it was something very similar to rape. And so I say it’s not all black and white. There’s a gray area of rape, and I call it ‘grape.’ It’s the guy you went home with in college, and you said, ‘No,’ and then he still did it, or maybe you woke up and it was someone you were dating. …
There’s just so many different things that can happen, so it’s not always this, ‘Well, you’re going to jail and that’s it.’ There’s other stuff where it’s like, ‘Wow, it would be so much work, and it would be such a life-changer for me to … press charges or take any action against this person.’ But every girl I know has had some experience that is kind of like ‘grape.’ “

  1. Charles Rowan Beye is a professor who’s been married three times - to two women and a man. From Maureen Corrigan’s review of his new memoir “My Husband and My Wives: A Gay Man’s Odyssey”:

    Eventually, however, even Beye’s mother couldn’t blink away his budding homosexuality. Beye was in junior high and enjoying a limited menu of sexual adventures with mostly straight boys, when the local Episcopal priest informed Beye’s mother that her son’s name was scrawled, along with a sexual slur, on a men’s room wall. Mother promptly dispatched her wayward son to a psychiatrist who — counter to almost every other psychiatrist in every work of gay literature ever written — turns out to be a compassionate man. The shrink simply counsels the 15-year-old Beye to be more discreet.

    Things take an even more unexpected turn when Beye meets an intellectually sparkling woman named Mary in college and, at the end of their first hour of conversation in a drugstore booth, Beye looks at her and declares: “This has been great … I think we should get married.” At 21, he had never slept with a woman. Nevertheless they do marry, happily, and when Mary suddenly dies of a freak heart condition a few years later, Beye remarries and fathers four children — all along maintaining his core identity as a gay man and enjoying an abundant sex life, described in great fleshy detail here, with gay and straight men.

  1. John Waters on today’s Fresh Air: "I understand wanting gay marriage. I would never vote for somebody who  was against gay marriage. [But] I purposefully have no desire to imitate  a rather corny tradition of heterosexuals to me. I would owe three  alimonies. I basically think that it’s more fun to go against the rules  … to make up your own rules. Sexual confusion is fun.  ‘Heteroflexibility’ is something that really makes me laugh, that term.  And kids today are like that; you don’t have to be gay or straight. They  don’t care, really. And I like that. I think it’s funny and more  liberating in a way. It’s sexual anarchy, which is exciting." View in High-Res
