Sex. Sometimes it IS just like meatballs. The Bettina Arndt ANU Allumni Talk. ~ the little lioness

Sex. Sometimes it IS just like meatballs. The Bettina Arndt ANU Allumni Talk.

So, we went to the, supposedly “controversial” Bettina Arndt talk at ANU tonight. If you hadn’t heard, there’d been a small protest organised for beforehand by the ANU Women’s Collective.

She went out and took question from the group before the main talk, which was great, then got into the talk.

Lots of annecdotes, funny stories, sad stories. Ones that got laughs from the women, not the men. Ones that sounded familiar, ones I hope not to have to tackle in my time.

But really, not all that controversial. Yes, there IS a difference between giving sex a go every now and then if you don’t feel like it in a relationship and issues of consent. It’s about give and take. And about doing something your partner wants.

You never know, you may get into it. You may not, hey, but that’s life. At least you tried?

    Oh and about the feelings of being rejected every time you approach your spouse

    I’m so disappointed I missed this. You’ll have to tell me more when we next catch up :)

    Wow. Way to advocate rape.

    I guess talking about sex in a forum like that can’t be all bad?
    Just appears as thought the lighting was crap and it looks bloody cold – couldn’t they have made the setting a bit more intimate?
    Looks like you were all doing one of those awkward group moments.
    No wonder you all look vaguely dissatisfied.

What do you think?
