How to Drop a Fetish and Enjoy Normal Sex?

Interesting article by Exotic Escort about sexual behaviour and how cultural anthropologist Gayle Rubin (1984) wrote the history about how sex ‘norms’ were categorized into ‘norms’ in the late 19th century by European medical professionals and how these sex ‘norms’ discourses still exist in mainstream society today.  Rubin’s famous ‘good sex-bad sex’ chart  illustrates what was constructed as ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ sex by Western medical professionals in the late 19th century. The acts in the inner circle are were deemed ‘normal,’ whilst the acts on the periphery were ‘abnormal’ acts. This mode of thinking is problematic on so many levels, making many false assumptions on sexuality. Tragically, these Victorian sexual norms prevailed as the West spread their dominance globally, and sadly many people still adhere to this discourse.
