Memorial Hastag Will Be: #Dec17
By now you have heard that Spike Lee's controversial film about Chicago gun violence, "Chiraq" is a take off from the old Greek play "Lysistrata" in which the women unite to withhold sex from the men until they agree to a truce and end the war. A special premier of the film is scheduled for the Chicago Theater this Sunday at 7pm. Today's guests, some of whom participated in the filming of Chiraq here in Chicago, will look at the film's message - women who unite to withhold sex from their gangbanging men to stop the killing on Chicago's streets. With all of the latest tragic shootings, taking the lives of innocent young people, is this a strategy women ought to consider? City officials have accused Spike Lee of making light of the situation with his film, but what do film participants think? What do you think of the idea? Could women stop violence with a sex boycott?
We like to stay unpredictable around here. Today on Morning Sex Radio, we want to connect with you! We've received question upon question of things you want answered and we'll be answering them live. Every second Staurday of the month we will bring you the "Listeners Choice" episode where we reach out to all of you. It's boring to talk about what we want to talk about all the time. The questions are juicy, so expect thorough explaination and pure, raw, honesty. If it's one thing you know about us already, is our filter. Well, the lack thereof!
Morning Sex will still give you the entertainment news of the day. Still be prepared for Shai's 2 Cents in 2 Minutes and Mycki's Motivation, all coming up this morning from 10-noon.
Follow us on IG - @morningsexradio and tell a friend to tell a friend that we're not scared to own our sexuality!
The words domestic violence are usually assoiciated with an adult woman being abused by an adult male. One in four women will be affected by some form of domestic violence, in their lifetime. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. http://www.ncadv.org/need-support/what-is-domestic-violence.
With awareness growing, studies have been geared to teen domestic violence. The statistics are alarming. http://www.loveisrespect.org/resources/dating-violence-statistics/ Over 1.5 million high school students will experience some form of physical abuse, this year. 43% of college dating women have reported some form of abuse. These numbers only include the reported number of cases. Statistically, only 33% of those vicitims every told anyone about the abuse. Parents that were surveyed don't believe that teen domestic violence is an issue (81%). The shocking part, only 58% of parents could identify the signs of an abusive relationship.
Organizations can spread awareness, but education is needed for our teens. As of July 2014, only 22 states had some form of legislation; in place, that addresses education for teen dating violence. http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/teen-dating-violence.aspx
Spreading awareness is a step in the right direction, but without educational programs we could see these statistics continue to grow.
Sex Workers Outreach Project joins sex workers, allies and advocates from around the world in recognizing December 17, the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers. As we approach this day, we come together to remember those lost this year and renew our commitment to the on-going struggle for empowerment, visibility, and rights for all sex workers.
On December 17th, We also renew our commitment to solidarity. The majority of violence against sex workers is not just violence against sex works—it’s also violence against transwomen, against women of color, against drug users, against immigrants. We cannot end the marginalization and victimization of all sex workers without also fighting trans-phobia, racism, stigma and criminalization of drug use, and xenophobia.

We have an exciting show for you this week! Morning Sex will be discussing the CASE OF THE EX: Sex with your ex. Isn't it odd that years after you've broken up with someone, they want to come out of nowhere saying they miss you and how they fucked up? This could be an ex lover, situationship or just someone you occasionally smashed in the past. Have you ever had an ex you wanted back so badly, you put your pride aside to get them? What kind of message does it give off when you occasionally smash your ex? Has there been an instance where you were on the fence about a new BAE and an EX?
We will also be sitting down with celebrity author and socialite, Shod Santiago! Come chop it up with us as we get all up in his head about what he thinks about ex's, talk about his book: Gucci & Gold, and find out what he has up his sleeve for the future.
Tune in to the madness this Saturday from 10am-noon and tell a friend to tell a friend!
