Men are tackling some tough sexual issues. Issues like male sexuality and sex addiction. For decades there have been men who were for gender equality, against violence and against sex role injustice. But now men’s liberation seems to be showing strength in the sexualarena. There are currently a number of male-run websites exploring the myths around “male supremacist sexuality,” and taking a hard look at porn addiction as well.
In what follows I’ll give a few examples of what I’ve recently come across where male-run websites are challenging what they see as an outdated idea of male sexuality based on objectification and domination.

“Porn makes sexism sexy: it makes domination, hierarchy, violence and hate feel like sex. Sexism is eroticized. Pornography is also one of the main enforcers of homophobia.”
