Sex and Free Speech - Savage Love

Just a little mini-post. I’d like to share one of my favourite web columns, not only because it’s funny, kinky and thought provoking, but also because the column is not only online but is published in several newspapers every week in the States. Yet another example to help explain how free speech works in the real world. It’s a sex advice column called Savage Love and is extremely explicit, so don’t look if you don’t want to read about straights, gays, fetishes and real sexual activities and desires and the problems that they create. But if you’re OK with that, I highly recommend checking it out.

Savage Love

Just for fucks sake don’t tell Omantel or they’ll block it and I really wouldn’t like to have to use a proxy server to read it every time. OK? It’ll be our little secret.

What I find an interesting thought experiment is to imagine a similar column in the Week... Now THAT would be a sign of changing values!


  1. Actually, the Powers That Be do block Savage Love in at least one of the papers in which it regularly appears - try accessing it from the website of The Village Voice. All you get is that all-too-familiar "Important Notice"... And is it just me or is the Omantel net swinging ever wider? Several of my favorite - definitely non-porn - sites have recently disappeared behind the Important Notice. Sigh...

  2. YAA
    I guess I'll know I've 'made it' when Omantel put this blog behind the

    OmanHel I guess only ever add to the list, so it grows daily. It's so pathetic, especially when indeed it is directed at non-porn sites.

    See my earlier post of a way of getting around OmanHel filters. Google Reader will also get some otherwise blocked sites if available as feeds...

  3. ha ha ha at the savage love aunt agony column

    it is as amusing as it is repulsive to me. I think reading it religiously could be considered a fetish in itself, no?
