I recently joined Meitar "maymay" Moscovitz and Emma Gross of Kink on Tap to discuss sex, cyborgs, and politics. In the podcast episode, entitled "Hymen on a Budget," we have ourselves quite a little chat. Body modification and plastic surgery, the nature of personhood, sexuality and gender selection, and criminally dangerous sex all get their moments in the sun. And while I may not precisely agree with maymay's statement "eugenics isn't sexy," I can't thank Emma and him enough for having me on the show. Gender and sexuality studies are where my interest in transhumanism started, so it's always good to get back to basics. Just a heads up: The content is explicit, so if frank discussion of sexuality, bodies, and politics is upsetting to you or anyone who may overhear, I'd recommend not listening--or at least wearing headphones. For those of you comfortable with whatever we may say, you'll be happy you listened and even happier to discover Kink on Tap. Image via J (mtonic.com) on Flickr
