On August 1, 2014, the Constitutional Court in Uganda struck down Uganda's anti-homosexuality law which set life sentences for anyone caught engaging in "aggravated acts of homosexuality."  Great news! A barbaric and draconian law designed to imprison Uganda's 500,000 gay adults struck down by the land's highest court.  A tremendous win for human rights!  Right? Wrong. From Al Jazeera:

Talking about human sexuality involves far more than just talking about "doin' it."  It's more than moralizing. Often, we just wonder: how do I make this...this caldron of desire, morality, family and do I make it all work?  Even the most intelligent, educated and urbane among us have conniptions trying to talk about sexual matters.

We plant trees for our grandchildren, the old saying goes. The idea here is a selfless act that prudently provides for a future we may never live to see. Parents who have baby boys have a similar challenge with a health issue that also requires us to consider a future we may never live to see but that can dramatically affect a boy's life in the future.

You know how you feel when your latest romance loses that new car smell?  Dear Abby knows.

DEAR ABBY: I’m in desperate need of help. I have been with my girlfriend for four years. With every long-term relationship, there are bound to be issues.  I haven’t felt loved by her in a long time, and I think I have fallen out of love with her.

America is different.  Sexually different.  No, America is not where it needs to be in terms of sexual human rights, but the times are changing.  For some, this change is frightening and a sign of bad things to come.  Some of these scaredy cats are very wealthy and are putting their wealth into sexual repression of others' growing empowerment.  Consider the tale of two gaga-zillionaires.

If you are the sort of sexual futurist who is easily offended by four-letter words you might want to just stop here and pray to your god for strength before proceeding because we're reprinting a letter from someone who responded to a recent article.  The writer is typical of many Internet trolls in that his motivation is to harm, his comments lack insight and the whole of it is a bit wet.  Not even annoying really.  OK, now that you've been warned, here it is:
