Conflation were accepted! Oh, shit, now I have to actually do the work! I'm signed up to moderate two panels: one on alcohol and drug safety, rape prevention, and safer sex called "How to Get Trashed and Laid (without Wrecking Everything)" and one on the quixotic struggles of early sex researchers and educators called "Those Who 'Came' Before." I need a couple of volunteers, who are already planning to be at Conflation in February, to help me with each of them. For the first one, I would like a couple of people who have strong opinions about or are comfortable speaking about moderation management, and/or harm reduction, and/or recognizing and combating rape culture, and/or safer sex, who are willing to sit up front with me and take a turn talking before we open the room up to Q&A. We can each pick one of those topics, or I can rant for 25 minutes or so to introduce the whole subject and open it up for the rest of you to take questions from the audience, however we decide to run it based on who volunteers. For the second one, my proposed curriculum is a brief overview of the sex research by Krafft-Ebing, Jung, Hirshfield, the Kinseys, and Masters & Johnson, especially how each of them had to prove some of the same things over and over again. I'm reserving Magnus Hirshfield for myself, and if nobody pleads for it, I'll take Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing, because both of them fascinate me; I would like volunteers to do five minutes or so, each, on the other three. I have read with interest your open letter to President Obama regarding what is, in your opinion, the President's hostile tone towards success in a capitalist economy. As one of the now-famous 99%, and indeed, being a retiree, as one of the 47%, I am writing to correct one misconception you seem to be laboring under. We 47%, we 99%, do not resent your success, nor do we resent or covet your money. We fear what you can do with your money.
