I remember on the ‘Midnight Special’ seeing a video with Meat Loaf. I think it was the ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ video.

I’ve done sexual stuff before – onstage, which is even more emotionally difficult. With a TV crew around, you are stopping and starting; it becomes really technical. It’s not erotic at all.

In the case of my book, I don’t think it’s really the coming-out gay novel that everyone really needed, even though it was received as such. The boy is too creepy, he betrays his teacher, the only adult man with whom he’s enjoyed a sexual experience, etc.

As Ohio Solicitor General and in pro bono private practice, I defended Ohio’s hate crimes law. This included a brief in the Wisconsin v. Mitchell case where the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Wisconsin’s hate crime law that included sexual orientation. Ohio’s should include it as well, and we support it.

I really get inspired by songs. Like, if I hear a thug ‘Want to kill ya’ song, I’m ready to go out and get crazy. Or if you hear this really sexual, sensual slow song, I want to go have sex. I’m very animalistic when it comes to stuff like that. Very basic emotions.
When women are told that sexual harassment is ‘part of the job’ or when assistants of both sexes enable harassing behavior, they have bought into the culture that says such behavior is not just permissible, it is a desirable expression of power.

It is women who have traditionally, historically been given non-human roles, perceived as simply the daughters of Eve, perceived as either Madonna or whore. And I think that it is the sexual revolution that plays one part in female emancipation.
I want to focus on the importance of supporting marriage. I always speak about the need to respect everyone’s human dignity – regardless of their sexual orientation. I think strengthening marriage is something that benefits everyone.
I feel very deeply about the need to respect and tolerate people of different social – or sexual orientation. But at the same time, I believe marriage should be preserved as an institution for one man and one woman.
One of the things that struck me about the 1870s, which we still haven’t nearly addressed, is what to do about the male-female divide. One of the forbidden topics is when men own up to the omnivorousness of their sexual interest and how to square that with being in love with an individual woman.
The speed with which modern society has adapted to accommodate the world’s vast spectrum of gender and sexual identities may be the most important cultural metamorphosis of our time.

The sexual deviance – I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss that; but we do have hints of it but in a more psychological way and therefore more human way, arguably. Or certainly to the extent that the animated series takes that sexuality.

The ‘serial kisser’ tag that has been thrust on to me is a lame stereotype. It irritates me. Yes, there is sexual content in my movies, and I have never been apologetic about doing bold scenes. But it’s not fair to tag me this way because that can be very stifling.
I believe in literature which ties people together, that highlights what people have in common, despite the differences – color, sexual orientation, or anything which may separate us on the surface.

The Pre-Raphaelites, while very bothered by what the establishment thought of them, also utterly rebelled against it. In everything – social, sexual, emotional – they were out on a limb, pushing the boundaries.
I kept a steel wall around my moral and sexual instincts – protecting them, I thought, from the threats of the real world. This gave me a tremendous advantage in politics, if not in my soul. The true me, my spiritual core, slipped further and further from reach.

While Congress did not, to my knowledge, calculate aggregate dollar values for the nationwide effects of racial discrimination in 1964, in 1994 it did rely on evidence of the harms caused by domestic violence and sexual assault, citing annual costs of $3 billion in 1990 and $5 to $10 billion in 1993.
I completely think of myself as sexual. Completely and utterly. Probably more so than I did when I was 30. I don’t know why. I’m very comfortable with how I look. I’m absolutely committed to never having anything done to my face. I would never let anyone near me with a Botox needle.

It’s so unbelievable that in 2017, almost every single woman has a story about sexual harassment.
Other female rappers are overly sexual, have no wit, and their lyrics are so generic. I want to change the game to make rap that shows I’m not a normal female rapper – it’s not about how rich I am, how much sex I have, or how many boyfriends I have. That’s just not me.
Michael Jackson loved epic symbols. In his shows and his videos, he always destroyed or salvaged worlds; he was the hero of parables about street violence, sexual combat, war and natural disaster. It was always apocalypse or apotheosis now.
Sexual signals can be received without being consciously sent.
I do not want to associate myself with sexual content on the webspace.

Sexual dreams aren’t usually about sex.
I will never understand people who think that the way to show their righteous opposition to sexual freedom is to write letters full of filthy words.

Injustice is either very blatant – you walk down the street and someone calls you a name; you don’t get a job because of your gender or your skin color or your sexual preference – but injustice is also very subliminal.
Flower was a good metaphor for growth. The song is obviously about sexual responsibility, so that was the main metaphor. Also, it’s like knowing who someone has been and remembering and appreciating that, but really appreciating what they are now even more.
Everyone thinks of the roaring twenties and associates it with decadence and flappers, female sexual liberation, the freedom of women to express themselves, the beginning of feminism. But it was also a time of huge, huge change.

Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.
I fail to understand why the #MeToo campaign in India didn’t gain momentum when Malayalam actor Dileep was arrested after an actress was abducted and assaulted or when Telugu actress Sri Reddy was banned for talking about sexual harassment. These instances were more deserving of the #MeToo movement than anything else.
‘God Loves Uganda’ is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting ‘sexual immorality’ and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law.
The outburst of sexual freedom in the ’60s was bound to happen because the ’50s were so oppressing. You had to live that way; women had to be like this – it was all locked into a false reality.
We all flirt. When I go into a meeting with new clients I flirt with them; when I want 20p off a hamburger I’ll flirt with them. It’s not about being sexual – it’s about getting someone’s attention and getting your own way in a seductive way.
There are things I take sides about, like capital punishment, which it seems to me there is only one side about: it is evil. But there are two or three sides to sexual harassment, and the moment you get into particular cases, there is injustice in every conceivable direction. It’s a mess.
Every university has its problems. The issues range from lack of amenities, plagiarism, poor quality research, sexual harassment, faculty moonlighting, and faulty and biased recruitment.
Sexual underwear is tacky.

We need to ensure that no one is denied employment, housing, opportunities, or benefits because of their sexual orientation.
Yet, when child sex offenders are brought to justice and serve time for their offenses, they are often released into unsuspecting communities and left free to resume their sexual attacks.

I’ve always been conscious not to take advantage of my sexual orientation because I don’t think it’s fair, and it shouldn’t matter.

While we can work hard at improving our health, size is no more in our control than the color of our skin, our ethnicity, or our sexual preference.
I invite you to get out of the box, be yourself. If you have blue hair, pink, yellow; if you have a broken tooth; if you have other sexual preferences… be yourself. Fight for your happiness always.
Humiliation, sexual harassment, fear and starvation was the order of the day until around 10 P. M. Interrogators made sure that I had no clue about the time, but nobody is perfect; their watches always revealed it.
Trauma and sexual abuse are two of our most pressing human and societal problems. They must be studied by unbiased scientific investigation rather than polarized by hysteria and politics.
In our society, women are valued for their sexual attraction. I’d like to get away from the sex symbol idea of what beauty is. Actually, that’s probably the farthest thing from beauty, because it’s makeup and hair, it’s pouty lips – it’s not real.
Thus the genetic basis to the origin of bird species is to be sought in the inheritance of adult traits that are subject to natural and sexual selection.
And it’s absolutely true that male sexual behaviour and female responses to male demands change a lot when they start communicating – and the levels of the communication that I’ve seen on the ground in very, very poor areas are so high and I think why don’t we have that here?
If I had a son, I want him to be able to grow up in a world where he would not be called a sexual predator for trying to kiss someone.
I want to be able to still surprise myself, even shock myself, whether it be sexual content, whether it be about the theological content, whatever. I want to be able to knock myself sideways. Otherwise, what a waste of a life that would be.
I had always thought my fantasy career would be making indie films and doing my own thing. But then ‘Superbad’ came along, and it totally changed everything. It was so hilarious and smart and extreme; you could probably do a psychoanalysis term paper on the male sexual psyche going on there.
Fans are going to give you crap no matter what sexual orientation you are.
I was sexually harassed while building Rent the Runway – propositioned, sent sexual text messages, harassed and threatened in person.

The right diet directs sexual energy into the parts that matter.
With scripts I’ve always looked at them and thought about kids, you know? Thought about the world and the impact… I won’t do nudity and I never felt comfortable with that whole idea or things with huge sexual content – not my thing.
My new passion is to get Internet education mandated in all schools. We’ve got to start teaching our kids how to be safe in the 40,000 plus chat rooms that are out there. Because they’re being had. These sexual predators groom the kids. I know, I’ve arrested enough of them.
I often have to play a role to get what I want in my life. At the same time, I can’t do that without also nourishing who I really am and being aware of my true self and the ways in which I’m not bound by my race or sexual orientation or class or country or whatever.
Marketers use big data profiling to predict who is about to get pregnant, who is likely to buy a new car, and who is about to change sexual orientations. That’s how they know what ads to send to whom. The NSA, meanwhile, wants to know who is likely to commit an act of terrorism – and for this, they need us.
If there is anything that has broken the church’s relationship with families, it is the global sexual abuse scandal.
Feminism is for all women and girls, not a privileged few or one ethnicity, religion, age, sexual preference, ability, region or hemisphere.

It becomes dangerous for somebody who doesn’t want their boss to know their sexual preference to use online networks to push for laws supporting gay marriage or same-sex partner rights if they can’t do so with a pseudonym.
As with most liberal sexual ideas, what makes the world a better place for men invariably makes it a duller and more dangerous place for women.
I want to stand up for what I believe in, and I don’t think it’s right when people say things or bash people because of their sexual orientation.
Sex is… perfectly natural. It’s something that’s pleasurable. It’s enjoyable and it enhances a relationship. So why don’t we learn as much as we can about it and become comfortable with ourselves as sexual human beings because we are all sexual?
I was lucky I always got along with girls. It was never like a big deal. I had a lot of girls that I was friends with that I wasn’t sexual with. I think having two older sisters made me comfortable like that. I just like people, so I can just go up and say whatever.
People have evolved into something selfish, greedy and intolerant. People are unaccepting, because of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation… I’ve seen it in punk clubs, and I’ve seen it in the world.
Sexual orientation, color, background – that’s what I want people to take away: Anyone can be anything.
I believe every photographer is influenced by their sexual preference in a greater or lesser way, and it certainly has affected me.

I had a pretty sexual imagination for a kid.
For me, some things, like, I just don’t want to know what they are before I eat them. Like, if you’re going to start feeding me, like, sexual organs of animals, or, like, a monkey’s brain or something – I’ll eat it. Just don’t tell me what it is until after I’ve finished it.

It doesn’t matter what the colour of your skin is, your sexual preference, the region where you were born, your gender. We’re all equal… We can’t take certain minorities and think they have super powers and are different from the others.
The evasion of justice within academia is all the more infuriating because the course of sexual harassment is so predictable. Since I started writing about women and science, my female colleagues have been moved to share their stories with me; my inbox is an inadvertent clearinghouse for unsolicited love notes.
They say that women’s sexual peaks are in their 30s or 40s, and I think that it happens because they’re more comfortable. It’s not some hormonal change that happens at that age. Of course, it would be nice to have more physiological insight on that.
Bottom line – cosmetics are used to accentuate an existing sex difference in facial contrast. This does not mean that women engage in this beautification practice with knowledge of this sexual dimorphism.
People want to be special. I think ambition can take in a whole package of things, power or sexual excitement.
I will do everything in my power to ensure our country is a place where everyone, whatever their gender identity or sexual orientation, can be themselves and live their lives with dignity and respect.
To shy away from human extremes and human sensuality makes for bone-dry fiction. A world parched of our sexual releases and our tumultuous daily emotional lives is deeply impoverished. It is not lifelike, at least life as I remember living it.
I can’t really define it in sexual terms alone although our sexuality is so energizing why not enjoy it too?
The criteria for serving one’s country should be competence, courage and willingness to serve. When we deny people the chance to serve because of their sexual orientation, we deprive them of their rights of citizenship, and we deprive our armed forces the service of willing and capable Americans.
These are men and women who are willing to risk their lives in defense of their country. And the fact that their orientation – sexual orientation’s been held against them is a blot on our nation’s reputation.
