Essential Salvo Articles on Sex in the City of Man

Sane Sex The Truth About Men & Women
by Terrell Clemmons

. . . This naturally leads into “The Meaning of the Sexual Differences,” which explores the distinctive traits of maleness and femaleness. Obviously, the corresponding body parts of a man and a woman, when working as intended, result in the propagation of the species, but there’s more to the complementarity than the physical. “The essential difference between men and women,” the teacher writes, “the underlying reality that gives rise to all their other differences, is that men are in potentiality to be fathers, and women are in potentiality to be mothers.” In other words, the male and female psychologies and innate dispositions, in addition to the distinct physiologies, operate in concert to continually regenerate the human race. . . .

World War Sex A Global Revolution Imperils Men, Women & Children: An Interview with Gabriele Kuby
by Benjamin J. Vail

. . . Gabriele Kuby warns that the global trend of “gender mainstreaming” threatens the fundamental understanding of our very human nature, with dire consequences for children, families, and society as a whole. . . .

Facts Evasion When It Comes to Sex, the Left Hates Science
by Hunter Baker

. . . Abortions continue to be performed in huge numbers despite the past assurances of some on the left that modern birth control would eliminate the need for the grisly procedure. And of the children who are born, an alarmingly high number are born to single mothers. As a group, these children are substantially more likely to do poorly in school, abuse drugs, commit crimes, require governmental assistance, and serve time in jail—and to see the cycle repeated when they have children of their own. Is it a scientific outlook that would maintain that this state of affairs is somehow conducive to human flourishing? Or would the evidence-driven observer be more likely to affirm that sex within marriage is far more advantageous to women than promiscuity? . . .

Sex, Lies & Video Games Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Has Turned Men into Boys by Kay S. Hymowitz
reviewed by Rebecca Edwards

. . . It has been almost universally true throughout history and across cultures that boys become men once they are able to support and protect a wife and family. In Western countries, however, this expectation has drastically diminished. Gone are the days when boys underwent rigorous trials and rites of passage to establish their status as men and their ability to undertake familial responsibilities and cultural leadership. Today’s boys are often left aimless, without being given a clear picture as to what makes a man. Largely free from societal expectations, they waste away much of their 20s and 30s playing video games, watching ESPN and Adam Sandler movies, drinking, and enjoying casual sex. . .

The Tyranny of the Minority How the Forced Recognition of Same-Sex “Marriage” Undermines a Free Society
by S. T. Karnick

. . . What’s at issue here is not whether people can declare themselves married and find other people to agree with them and treat them as such. No, what’s in contention is whether the government should force everyone to recognize such “marriages.” Far from being a liberating thing, the forced recognition of same-sex “marriage” is a governmental intrusion of monumental proportions. . . .

Cohabitation Marriage Lite or the New Concubinage?
by Alan F. H. Wisdom

. . . Defenders of cohabitation portray it as just a more flexible form of marriage. The love is the same as in marriage, they say; all that is missing is “a piece of paper,” the marriage certificate. Some see cohabitation as a “trial marriage.” They assume that living together will confirm a couple’s compatibility and reduce the odds that a subsequent marriage might end in divorce. . . . Social science does not support any of these assertions. By every measure, cohabitation is a very different relationship from marriage. . ..

Desperately Disconnected 50 Shades of Grey & the Longings of the Female Heart
by Terrell Clemmons

. . . Like all good researchers, they started with observation. Slattery read the 50 Shades series and identified five longings of the female heart, based on the roller-coaster ride of emotions she felt as she read. Meanwhile, Gresh listened to stories of women who read this mushrooming genre and consulted the guidelines for its authors. She then identified five characteristics of popular erotica. Though the two women worked independently, their lists matched up remarkably. Take a look. . . .

Pink Cross The Story of Shelley Lubben, Former Porn Star
by Judith Reisman

. . . As a veteran student of pornography and prostitution, I did not expect to learn anything new from watching Shelley Lubben’s public testimony. I was wrong. Shelley’s description of the sexual violence and degradation of modern pornography was a shock, even to me. It made me think that it made perfect sense to hear that she had left her economically rewarding “star” roles to return to a safer life doing “straight” prostitution. . . .

Lie Charts A New Book Explains How Kinsey Perverted a Nation with False Science
by Marcia Segelstein

. . . Just three years after World War II ended and the war heroes returned home, Americans came under attack again. This time, it wasn’t brutal dictators and their armies leading the assault, it was a pseudo-scientist named Alfred Kinsey. His 1948 book, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, shocked the nation and lit the spark for what would become the sexual revolution. America would never be the same. . . .

Slave Master How Pornography Drugs & Changes Your Brain
by Donald L. Hilton, Jr.

. . . What does this have to do with pornography? Pornography is a visual pheromone, a powerful, $100 billion per year brain drug that is changing human sexuality by “inhibiting orientation” and “disrupting pre-mating communication between the sexes by permeating the atmosphere,” especially through the internet. I believe we are currently struggling in the war against pornography because many continue to believe two key fallacies: Fallacy No. 1: Pornography is not a drug. Fallacy No. 2: Pornography is therefore not a real addiction. . . .

Germs of Promiscuity Sexually Transmitted Infections
by Marcia Segelstein

. . . What happened to unleash such an epidemic within a few decades? In a nutshell, the sexual revolution. Thanks in part to Alfred Kinsey’s fraudulent research, which purported to prove that ordinary Americans were engaging in illicit, extramarital, and deviant sexual acts in large numbers, and in part to the advent of widely available artificial contraception, especially the Pill, sexual mores began to shift. Author Mary Eberstadt offers this succinct definition of the sexual revolution in her book, Adam and Eve After the Pill: Paradoxes of the Sexual Revolution: “the ongoing destigmatization of all varieties of nonmarital sexual activity, accompanied by a sharp rise in such sexual activity, in diverse societies around the world (most notably, in the most advanced).” . . .
