Nina Hartley & the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance on DrSuzy.Tv in Bonoboville!
Length 1:21:21 Date: July 5, 2014
It’s another firecracking 4th of July weekend in Bonoboville, and amidst all the all-American, hot-dogging, beer-busted, summer-hot affirmations of freedom, we explore the ins and outs of sexual freedom with an icon of sex and freedom, the one and only Nina Hartley, now celebrating her 30th year as the best-known, most enduring and beloved of American porn stars.
Yes, the inimitable, effervescent, eloquent, elegant, extremely intelligent, kinky, swinging and very bonoboësque Nina is still doing porn. She’s “a ho and proud of it,” with “sex partners younger than (her) breast implants.” But she’s branched out since she made her first of many great appearances on RadioSUZY1 back in 1994 (20 years ago!). This time, she joins us as spokeswoman for the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, “America’s leading sexual freedom and human rights organization” based in Washington, DC (where all the political ho’s hang out). Some of the important issues Woodhull focuses on include freedom of speech, reproductive justice, prison reform, anti-discrimination legislation, comprehensive nonjudgmental sexuality education, immigration equality and the right to define our own families. The Alliance’s mission is to “affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right.” And I say amen and awomen to that.
Nina and her “sidekick,” fellow Woodhull board member, businessman and erotic explorer, Danny O’Neill (a younger, slimmer doppelgänger for John McCain), are most excited about Woodhull’s upcoming Sexual Freedom Summit, August 14-17, a long lusty weekend of discussions, seminars, networking events, trainings and, of course, parties (what’s sexual freedom without parties?) in our nation’s capital. I call it Sexual Freedom Summer Camp for adults only (sorry kids, you’ll have to wait until you’re over 18 for a decent sex education in this society).
Speaking of sex education, just in case you don’t know your sex-positive feminist history… Victoria Woodhull, namesake of the Woodhull Alliance, was an extraordinary 19th century sexual freedom fighter, radical suffragist, spiritual visionary, “Free Love” advocate and newspaper publisher, as well as being the first woman to own a Wall Street investment firm and run for President of the United States (at a time when American women could not even vote). Though she rose to the top, Woodhull more than paid her dues at the bottom, and not just during her poverty-stricken beginnings. Even after her extraordinary success, she was depicted in the press as “Mrs. Satan” and jailed repeatedly on charges of publishing pornography, mostly thanks to the puritanical machinations of U.S. Postmaster General Anthony Comstock. Unfortunately, that’s where sexual freedom fighting sometimes takes you, as Capt’n Max, former publisher of The LA Star and longtime sexual freedom fighter, can attest.
The fight for sexual freedom goes on in a multitude of ways around the world, as we are reminded when Danny’s “friend” Susan, a lovely Yemeni Sunni Muslim joins us briefly for a hug and some laughs. Susan is bubbling with excitement to attend her first Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit this August. If the folks back home in Yemen could see her now…
Although Nina Hartley and Ron Jeremy are as different as a gourmet vegan salad and a kosher salami, they are both amazing, multi-talented, living, legendary icons who started in porn (though even before porn, Nina was a nurse and Ron was a teacher). Both have “crossed over” from porn into mainstream entertainment and education, even as they continue to work as stars in an industry that tends to honor youth over experience. Since we proclaimed Ron Jeremy mayor of Bonoboville in the midst of his tour de force Wild Summer Solstice performance a couple weeks ago, and since she already has a Bonoboville fan club, it seems only fitting to appoint Nina Hartley Bonoboville city attorney…. and the crowd goes wild! Bonoboville has the finest elected and appointed officials on the planet. Who will fill the next orifice… er, office?
Seriously though, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nina run for “real” political office someday. She certainly has my vote.
More Weapons of Mass Discussion
The ups and downs of being married, monogamous, monogamish (thank you, Dan Savage), polyamorous and swinging, and our appreciation of Sex at Dawn for its cogent explanation of why all these human sexual relationships are so complex.
“I own my orgasm,” proclaims Nina. “My lover(s) are lucky to be in the room.”
Nina explains and demonstrates (on Danny) how a woman can use the web of the hand between thumb and forefinger to show her lover how she likes to be licked. Danny thanks Nina on behalf of men everywhere. “We feel like we’re in the dark,” he says, thrilled that she just flicked on the light with a few words and some tongue movements.
How the Make-Love-Not-War bonobos, who swing through the trees as well as with each other, can inspire sexual freedom lovers.
More Post-Show Sex on The Bonoboville Kitchen Table!
Freedom is the greatest aphrodisiac. But restraint is a close second. I’m talking about consensual restraint, of course. It’s kind of ironic, but some of the freest folks on earth get off on giving up their freedom… in a controlled, circumscribed way. Sometimes they are turned on by being “forced” to experience things they really want but don’t feel free to receive unless they’re restrained. Sometimes they become aroused by struggling against the restraints or surrendering to them as they enter “sub space.” This is one of the bedrock principles of BDSM.
Nina knows this principle very well. In addition to her whirlwind of public speaking and erotic activities, she has a very special relationship with her husband/Dom, director Ernest Greene, a.k.a. Ira Levine, for whom she is “collared and naked all the time…. You never know when he’s going to need a blowjob.”
Unfortunately, Ira isn’t in-studio to demonstrate, and right after the show, Nina and her entourage have to dash (though we’re delighted they stayed longer than expected!). However, inspired by Nina’s praise of ecstatic naked servitude, our “Raw Vegan Slave Goddess” Cici Cummins strips down to nothing but a smile and a 4th of July streamer she whimsically wears as a hair extension. She proclaims her desire to be restrained and penetrated whereupon Simon ties her hands behind her back with an American flag scarf as we bend her over the legendary Bonoboville kitchen table (which has seen more action than a Navy Seal), and L’Erotique proceeds to fingerbang her yoni with the force of the American military invading Iraq. That’s invasion, Bonoboville-style! I smack her ass with a JuxLeather “infinity belt,” and press a Doc Johnson Pocket Rocket on her quivering clit as she howls, writhes against her all-American restraints and cums all over the table (if that table could talk!). Drop Pocket Rockets, Not Patriot Missiles! Happy Independence Day!
Thanks for the inspiration, Nina! And thank you, Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, for helping to get America and the world to recognize sexual freedom as one of the most fundamental human rights of all. Here’s hoping you all have a wonderful, orgasmic, sapiosexual Summit!
