Via the Puppy-Blender comes a list of "basic sexual rights" from some outfit calling itself the "Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality". My favorite:

8. The recognition by society that every person, partnered or unpartnered, has the right to the pursuit of a satisfying consensual sociosexual life free from political, legal or religious interference and that there need to be mechanisms in society where the opportunities of sociosexual activities are available to the following: disabled persons; chronically ill persons; those incarcerated in prisons, hospitals or institutions; those disadvantaged because of age, lack of physical attractiveness, or lack of social skills; and the poor and the lonely.

This is brilliant - I only wish I had thought of it myself back in high school.

Self: But why won't you go out on a date with me?

Beautiful Babe: You're a dork, that's why.

Self: Hey - those of us disadvantaged because of lack of physical attractiveness and lack of social skills have a right to sociosexual activities, too! Take off your top, you bigot, or I'll sue you!

" The right to engage in sexual acts or activities of any kind whatsoever, providing they do not involve nonconsensual acts, violence, constraint, coercion or fraud."

Interesting that they do not say "adult", no mention of any age limit. I guess NAMBLA and Roman Polanski helped write this.

I've got no interest in regulating what consenting adults do, but this seems to go beyond that.
