On The Mark, Lets Vet and Grow: Women Have Been Socialized to Be Emotional About Sex..... but for a Reason (by Ayeshah Lockwood)

Hmmm... intercourse has a purpose. I agree, women have been socialized to be emotional about sex but there is a reason. It's nothing to do with love, independence, even pleasure, those are tools. Sex is fundamentally a means of replenishment, it has been converted to a strategy of resource under the guise of love, independence and pleasure. Labor, body parts, innovation and invention are not just abstract by products, they are the reason for the cultivation of this mindset. When the naturally occurring result of sex happens, if it is not "desired, protected, and properly cultivated" it is often abandoned or neglected, made available to others for other uses. Women get abortions, the tissue and body parts are reallocated for use by others. Children get abused, neglected or abandoned, many end up as laborers, quite often in penal institutions. The mindset of socially emotionalized sex facilitates the reallocation and absorption of vital resources our community needs. The break down of our relationships and families, and our agreement and compliance with this method of division enhances, exacerbates our vulnerability as a whole, not just the "independent, intelligent individuals". 

Intelligence is just the ability to learn, all living beings, flora or fauna have it, they can be "taught". Thought, which is actual matter, is the ability to create. The conversion of our thought matter through the use of intelligence facilitates and supports the creations of those who used thought to convert it using methods of intelligence. Ijs...

Meet Poet, Author, and Blacktopian Aliscia Melton AKA Sunshine BlackRose

Aliscia began writing as a youth by journaling and creating 
stories. It was a way for her to deal with her emotions and
turbulent upbringing. She later picked writing back up when 
she became involved with the Youth Ministry at church. She
would write short plays, speeches, and poems for the children to recite.

In 2012, Aliscia was re-introduced to poetry through friends
and some personal struggles in her life. During this time she 
found solace in writing and her horizon was broadened
as she saw her life story being written out in poetic form, 
which she refers to as her “mind spillage”. 

This caused her to share her work with others online and to eventually create a 
group through FaceBook where all could come and freely express themselves in poetic form
(Poetic Freedom CafĂ©).

Aliscia has been featured on "The Literary Corner" a blog radio show where she shared her art of poetry and on Eloquently Speaking, an online magazine 

She has also been featured as Poet of the month in Eloquently Speaking, a poetry group on Facebook and featured online at

Aliscia has been featured on The Top 15 of the Month on the website A shared Format 4 Poets, over 8 times for several of her poetry pieces, sometime making the list multiple times in one month for different pieces. Aliscia Melton is not only a poet, but an entrepreneur, mentor and community activist. For more information about Aliscia Melton, the renaissance woman, check her personal website

Women Have Been Socialized to Be Emotional About Sex

I believe women have been socialized to be emotional about sex. Less likely to be slut-shamed if you can claim emotional connection/love. Women within the last 30 yrs have more education, independent incomes, sexual autonomy, and birth control. We're new to the "hit it and quit it" game. As time goes on, we may be more able to decouple sex with emotion. 
PS. - some of the sex I've had, I had no emotional connection with any of the men.
