Where Do We Go From Here? (Hate Crimes on the Pier)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As I sit here today, employed by GMHC as a counselor, HIV tester, and outreach worker for at-risk youth, I think back on how I got here and what empowered me to take this path. I remember it like it was yesterday: my first time in the neighborhood of the West Village in Manhattan (also known as the Village). It was the most heart-racing experience I could've ever imagined! I'd moved to New York City to find myself. I was at the basketball courts at the West 4th Street subway station, trying to figure out where all the gay men hung out. Standing there for a whole hour, I wanted to ask passing pedestrians where the "gay area" was, but I was just too scared. Nervous and flustered, I saw a group of, let's just say "very colorful," young men walk past me. I carefully followed the group, hoping they were going to this gay sanctuary I'd been told about. After several nerve-racking and curious blocks, I could see for certain that I'd finally arrived home. The Village, including the piers by t ...

The buzz: how the vibrator came to be
Guardian (UK) - over 4 years
In 19th-century Britain, women suffering from chronic anxiety prescribed pelvic finger massage. Doctors found this tedious and time-consuming, so they invented something to do the job for them Such was the media excitement inspired by the appearance of a vibrator in a late 1990s episode of Sex And The City, one might have thought the device had only just been invented. Any misapprehension is about to be corrected by a new film, Hysteria, which tells the true story of the vibrator's inception. Described by its producers as a Merchant Ivory film with comedy, Hysteria's humour derives chiefly from the surprise of its subject's origins, which are as little known as they are improbable. The vibrator was, in fact, invented by respectable Victorian doctors, who grew tired of bringing female patients to orgasm using their fingers alone, and so dreamt up a device to do the job for them. Their invention was regarded as a reputable medical instrument – no more improper than a stethoscope – but ...

It hasn’t been the easiest trip she’s ever made, but for Margo Pellegrino, it’s one of the most important. “This is about my home turf,” she said, gesturing to the map of the New Jersey-New York shoreline and a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean that she wants declared the “Clean Ocean Zone.” It’s a portion of the ocean that Clean Ocean Action, the New Jersey-based grass roots environmental group, has fighting for years to keep free of pollution and uses that it contends would be damaging to the environment. Now, the organization is trying to convince federal lawmakers to take the steps necessary to forever block any attempts to industrialize that portion of the ocean, including things like offshore drilling and transfer terminals for liquefied natural gas. Pellegrino, who has made a name for herself kayaking along various stretches of coastline to bring awareness to ocean issues, is paddling her kayak in the Atlantic from Cape May to Montauk, at the far eastern tip of Long Island, ...

  • TWENTIES
  • 1967
    Age 24
    She received a masters degree in history from the University of Florida in 1967.
    More Details Hide Details She then moved to New York City and enrolled at Columbia University to work toward her Ph.D. in social history. Hite says that the reason for her not completing this degree was the conservative nature of Columbia at that time. In the 1970s, she did part of her research while at the National Organization for Women. She appeared nude in Playboy while studying at Columbia University and also posed provocatively in a typewriter ad to earn money for her college fees, but when she read the ad's strapline, "The typewriter is so smart she doesn't have to be", she joined a feminist protest against the ad she had appeared in. Hite teaches at Nihon University (Tokyo, Japan), Chongqing University in China, and Maimonides University, North Miami Beach, Florida, USA. Hite has focused on understanding how individuals regard sexual experience and the meaning it holds for them. Hite's work concluded that 70% of women do not have orgasms through in-out, thrusting intercourse but are able to achieve orgasm easily by masturbation or other direct clitoral stimulation. She, as well as Elisabeth Lloyd, have criticized Masters and Johnson for uncritically incorporating cultural attitudes on sexual behavior into their research; for example, the argument that enough clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm should be provided by thrusting during intercourse, and the inference that the failure of this is a sign of female "sexual dysfunction." While not denying that both Kinsey and Masters and Johnson have played a crucial role in sex research, Hite believes that society must understand the cultural and personal construction of sexual experience to make the research relevant to sexual behavior outside the laboratory.
