What a charming exhibitionist. Lady grace tells us about charm school
and having a 24/7 dominant relationship to her male submissive. She
started to explain it as a gender reversal. In the Default Public, sex roles
have traditionally enabled a form of implicit male dominance and
female submission “in public”. A part of Dominance/Submission role
play is either an undermining and/or exaggeration of the link of
male/female and dominance/submission.
Michel Foucault said: “San Francisco is not a city, it is a laboratory
of sexual experimentation.” SF’s Gay and Lesbian sexual cultures have
been employing sexual dominance and submission for years. One result
of this is the mass exploration of Female Masculinity among hip young
San Francisco. Fifteen years ago San Francisco’s lesbian hipsterism
was a hotbed of Butch-Femme culture with a strong dose of bdsm. The
landscape today is very different. One young lesbian who wishes to
remain nameless, told me: “It is hip to be transgender now.”
She did not think they were “really transgender.” I wondered to myself
how she would know. BDSM, Crossdressing, Sexual Rebellion and Gender
Transition, these are the currents which eddy through the San
Francisco Sexual Counterpublic. They were all liberally present at the
Center For Sex And Culture’s masturbation awareness event last
saturday in San Francisco
