We all have questions about sex. There's no way we can know it all. So this week's Sex Stories We Love explores some issues and concerns that we could be wondering about.

Sex Robot Hysteria

Have you ever wondered if people are going to completely lose their shit if widespread use of sex robots becomes a thing? Stories like this make me hope that we're all reading stories about sex - on any topic, not just sex robots - with a discerning eye. Talk about clickbait! Yes, there are folks out there who have ethical and moral concerns about sex robots and dolls. These products are becoming more lifelike but will not (ever) be truly living. There are potential psychological implications to this for some users. Yet, that doesn't mean we will be breeding mass murderers and psychopaths because some folks choose to fuck inanimate objects. Detailing one horrendous individual's use of a mannequin as a sex toy does not the case make. Are not vibrators, penis sleeves, and dildos all sex robots of sorts? Have their uses caused widespread terror? Consume sexual media very carefully, friends. It is easily distorted.

The Sad State of Rape Penalties

Have you ever wondered why women's bodies are so entirely disregarded in the law? Sure, there's a lot of talk these days about sex robots, but why is there never any sustained discussion and reform of sexual assault penalties? Here, you have a man who sexually assaulted an intoxicated woman multiple times, used her phone to record and photograph the incidents, and uploaded the media to Facebook. What did he receive as a sentence? Just 26 months. During the trial, he breached his house arrest, didn't show up for court dates, and was noted to be feeling sorry for himself. If you've ever wondered why people sexually assault others, maybe it's because there is zero fear of consequences - because there are so few being administered.

The Number

Have you ever wondered how many people your current partner has slept with? Have you then wondered why knowing that number matters to you? There is a natural curiosity to know everything possible about people we become intimate with. Getting a sense of a person's sexual past can open a window into certain aspects of their personality. Of course, those aspects can be maliciously interpreted (as is often the case) and used to shame someone if they happen to have a high number. On the other hand, learning about your partner's sex number can be enlightening. You can look for patterns of who they find attractive and ask questions about what turns them on. You can learn a lot about a person's life from their sexual history - and then use that information positively moving forward.

Sex Work Is Real Work

Have you ever wondered what former porn performer Belle Knox is up to these days? Well, she graduated from Duke and she's attending a great law school in New York City. She chooses to not discuss her porn performing past while pursuing this dream. Good for her! Miriam made choices that worked for her. They weren't easy, but sex work made her future happen. As noted in this article, there are going to be people who get hung-up on her former part-time job, but there are also many people who will see it as unimportant or even beneficial.

Flying the Legal Skies?

Have you ever wondered if joining the Mile High Club is actually illegal? Turns out, there is a pretty specific way to determine that. If you really want to soar to new sexual heights in the friendly skies, you should acquaint yourself with the laws of the country that the plane you're flying is registered in.

Is it even possible to find that information? I dunno. Is it worth it? Have you been in an airplane bathroom? I mean, I'm not saying I wouldn't try it (no, I'm not a member), but airplane bathrooms are small and kinda foul ... especially after a few hours in the sky. Maybe it's best to stick with different onboard entertainment?

Take Me Away

Finally, have you ever wondered why vacation sex is somehow "better" than sex at home? And definitely better than on the plane that takes you to your destination?
