The Dildo Diaries

October 13th, 2006

The Dildo Diaries is a documentary about the confusing and archaic sex laws in the state of Texas. It’s a humorous look at a very serious issue, and it’s worth watching to see how anti-sex laws can limit people’s rights – not to mention leading to some very confusing conversations in an Austin sex shop. You can buy the dvd of the diaries from the website. This week a colleague also gave me a heads up that there’s an 11 minute clip from the diaries on youtube that’s well worth watching.

At a time when many Western women take for granted the option of buying and owning sex toys, it’s worth remembering that in some parts of the world there are real barriers to sexual pleasure, education and empowerment. Many sex toy distributors have failed to engage with this political aspect, but those that have can be seen in all their outspoken glory in the Dildo Diaries.
