‘Sex Power Money’: Sara Pascoe explores the ‘Heterosexual Conundrum’
The idea that a man is expected obliged to pay on the first date just because he is the mine is shocking, but maybe I’ve been doing feminism too long. I thought we were working to society expectations prescribed by genda Shirley. Women are contradicting themselves as we list down to Mom’s. What do we want? Equality, respect, sex power – and I was very naive about this, because I have never dated I’ve, always just kind of fool and interrelationships. I didn’t know that was still happening until there was a reality show still is on British TV code. First dates with wonderful French man who fed the whole thing and he’s very charming and romantic and them they’re at the end of the meal and heterosexual couples in mind, says no. No, no. No. I found it really fascinating in the UK as and shows like WW1. Very serious scientific she’s wasn’t going to attack his hearers I’m going to search. I thought I was going to take a little skim across and transactional sex and it was going to be about and the mail go to email physiology searching. I realized my own ignorance, which is one way fantastic, because you didn’t get off work. At least I know I need to know these things, but not the white means. I now have a lot of work to do to try and understand something better, and I realize that discussions about spell transactional sex at what dating with Biology what little bit neck up, what kind of mystical theoretical of them being interested in? Why and where these things might come from, and the other side was to look at anything that involves money and sex without looking power dynamics in equality of power that causes intermingled with the inequality of economy as well, and, I think, seems like we did kind of Important facts signs from the sex as well as you mentioned you do with pornography, feel the same way as I would about hairdressing school bus driving. Oh, yes and I’ll do everything you’ve read touched? What’S your opinion now? Well, I think what I’ve realized a lot now. Is that test? No morality, objectivity, sufferance! I don’t want to sell sex, and I and I and I’m as when I imagine, scenarios that would compel me to a full smeeto. I kind of want to protect any other person from that situation, but why I’ve realized from interviewing intensive wanting to help people? You might have our good intentions if you have to listen to what they want as a person that’s to decriminalize sex with, which seems like a very odd thing, if you think pet them become more vulnerable by criminalizing what time is it says, I should be exact Opposites in this whole situation will be improved and actually it’s the office. Hello in UK means that people can’t work together to people kind of high of a room of a house. That’S called Brussel kafin, which means the quite often the thing that would make the safest, which is having someone else downstairs or knowing where they were about. Having I seen that customers face and that’s technically illegal – and so does things like that, so I was completely ignorant about and now I feel like if it was listen to the people who is effects well-meaning, the internet wouldn’t basically changed everything in times of pornography. How do you feel that it’s having an effect on young people’s sexuality? It’S very interesting hardcore pornography, people that had any sexual experience themselves. I think it would have responded very troubling. What we can catch me as I was researching, is that we all kind of again emotionally believe something, but that hasn’t been that much.. They are proof that something ways and case studies where people think that it’s really hoping it’s sexual exploration, because everything is available. People who thinks or something sexual Persuasions don’t feel alone, then I’ll be the only person they know that has these kind of is a communities around. So that’s really positive, but the other side of it is that very young people who are guessing huge amount of section information only from pornography. It’S about the society. The way that we do sex education has to change, and she put out in this book is very important in the debate at you put out, for example, the shift from The Prostitute to the ex-wife and the light red light. That kind of situation is the progressive solution is interesting because lots of people don’t like the legalization of, but they like the decriminalization and that again something for me that I didn’t realize I was things that hold back your since you very complicated business that you have To leave to go and actually have the sex, and then can people who live in the area which area it seemed to be a kind of it did look cute IP. I was suddenly this really great things and people have still been murdered. Selling sex in the areas where it hasn’t made it safer picture of consent is something that we’ve been talking about a lot recently more people named this me to every you actually bring up the Weinstein scandal in your book, as well as the criminal nature charges of Sexual, let you say how wide how that power comes into that mix and sometimes can create a culture of Silence. How do we change that is very difficult with a hierarchy, the Performing Arts are. These things happen to everyone who has ever worked in a job has had an experience and I’m not saying that either experience is what you going to go to the police, but just the kind of experience, something something Talk Back and You’re self-employed. And if you complain about 1, send they just don’t have to employ you again being displayed being sent to be a troublemaker difficult to assert yourself. I guess communally. We have to be much better at supporting each other. Your job, your source of income, is your safe day, quite often much easier to go. Okay, I sound concentrate on the job that kind of thing scientific data, fascinated you, the findings and handling older. just pushing information. I found that for a reader, I’m really careful to keep stating this is opinion, I’m not qualified irregular past and trying to find this out and trying to Grapple with it as a way of kind of widening out the conversation not to go off by the way. I don’t have them for a scientist: do you have to concentrate and prove research? Some of it involves animals which species with you say you were really impressed by the way, as humans should be taking tips from chimpanzees so and they are very hierarchical. Next person that dominates and have sex all the time, and we would consider it a kiss on the mouth and they have incestuous late as well, and the females in particular whenever looks like a situation, is going to become aggressive. She just gets off with everyone. Just calm down calm down I’m, so I assume it’s very interesting that I’m not saying we should we kiss each other with the time, but intensive like love and wanting instead of aggression or so way of kind of fit, might be something about the nervous that we Can learn from fighting with kind of us stop comedian?
