The Soapbox: Let’s Get Real When Discussing Complicated Sexual Experiences

The Soapbox: We Can't Limit Our Vocabulary When Discussing Complicated Sexual Experiences

There’s been a lot of talk lately in the media about sexual violence. Late last month, former CBC Broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi was fired amid allegations of sexual assault. A few weeks ago, Shia LaBeouf came forward with claims that he was raped during an art exhibition. And by now everyone’s heard of the sex abuse allegations first brought against Bill Cosby decades ago, which seem to just keep coming.

Then a little over a week ago, Rolling Stone released an editor’s note that undermined their own investigative account of a brutal gang rape that allegedly took place at a fraternity house at the University of Virginia. It was a move that The Frisky’s Beejoli Shah astutely noted as “just another example of shifting the focus away from the real issue at hand: how we talk about rape, and how hard it is for survivors to come forward.”

As a former sex worker turned sex writer I think it’s good that people are talking about sexual health.

Shia LaBeouf’s “#IAMSORRY” Collaborators Confirm Rape Claim

  • Shia LaBeouf’s “#IAMSORRY” collaborators are confirming his claim that he was raped by a woman who attended the performance art show earlier this year.

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Remember earlier this year, when Shia LaBeouf held a silent performance art show called “#IAMSORRY” in Los Angeles? It was pretty much a rip-off of Marina Abramović’s “The Artist Is Present,” in that visitors got to interact with LaBeouf in, apparently, whatever way they wanted to. And according to an email interview LaBeouf did with Dazed magazine, one visitor raped him during the performance while her boyfriend and LaBeouf’s girlfriend were waiting in line outside.
