Welcome to NSFW Sunday!

“I learned about sex and sexuality through instagram: the new guidelines will make that impossible,” writes Theresa writes at Salty:

“The new guidelines are particularly strict, targeting any form of content that could even remotely be considered sexual, including emojis and a vague ‘sexually explicit language’. Unarguably, the most damaged by the new rules were sex workers […]

However, the new guidelines impacted many other types of Instagram creators: being so strict regarding sexual innuendos as well as nudity in general, multiple educators, sex- and body-positive activists, and even trans people documenting their journey and reviewing products had to delete posts to avoid repercussions, and many have nonetheless been victims of shadowban. It seems that even the vaguest terms of the new rules, like the ban on ‘conversations around sexual acts,’ are being interpreted in the strictest sense, putting on the spot even erotic art.”

“Get comfortable with risk because you can’t mitigate all of it,” writes Page Turner at poly.land.

Here’s where you can sunbathe naked around the world.

Friend of the pod Mistress Justine’s BDSFemme, a virtual kink party for women and cis women, is coming up on 8 May and you can get tickets here.

“I spent all of quarantine craving a crush. Post-vaccination, I’ll have to discover what I really want,” writes Drew Gregory on this very website.

At lot of people would rather browse Zillow than have sex right now and that’s fine. Here are some folks on giving up sex until the pandemic is over.

Creating rituals can be one way to process grief. Here’s how to get started letting go of the grief of past year.

“There is something special, improbable even, about a space dominated by queer and trans Black folk participating in BDSM; an activity that’s often considered ‘white people shit,'” writes B. Vanessa Coleman at Salty about BDSM’s liberatory potential for Black folks:

“My favorite definition of freedom is from Nina Simone: ‘No fear.”’For Black folk, fear is as constant a sensation as freedom is a constant struggle – courtesy of the white supremacist, capitalist violence of poverty and (over)policing, which share a core tenant: racism. In a world where the Black body is relentlessly exploited, policed, and violated in ways that deny our autonomy and leave us perpetually navigating pain and trauma, kink+BDSM set us free by centering consent and encouraging self-expression and exploration, creativity and play.”

Car sex? Bathroom sex? Storage closet sex? Here’s how to have hot sex when you’re in a very small space:

“No matter where you are, handjobs, fingering, and whatever other kind of manual stimulation you’re into are ideal ways of having sex at the drop of a hat. You can do them without fully removing any clothing; they’re discreet; and they work both standing or sitting, with very little flexibility or intense movement involved either way. You and your partner can also give and receive at the same time, which can help cut down on time if you’re aiming for a quickie.”
