This Week in Sex: Iggy’s Bar Mitzvah

Iggy Azealia created a stir this week (as usual). While twerking at a Bar Mitzvah, she accelerated the coming-of-age for all the youth in the crowd when her pants split open. (Spoiler alert: you don’t get to see much, but the video went viral anyway.)

Given your love for wardrobe malfunctions, dear reader, we suggested five viral videos of pop-star outfit mishaps at Jewish rituals that we’d like to see next.

Actress Rose McGowan had a different kind of mishap, less about what she was wearing and more about what she was saying. On Brett Easton Ellis’s podcast, she told the author that it seems like gays “have basically fought for the right to stand on top of a float wearing an orange speedo and take molly” and that gay men are more misogynistic than straight dudes. She also explained why she hosted a party at the Beverly Hills Hotel, whose owner—the Sultan of Brunei—recently imposed Shariah law in his country and inspired many Hollywood boycotters.

Another controversial actor this week was Lena Dunham. After writing about touching her sister’s vagina as a seven-year-old in her new memoir, right-wingers (who apparently just read her memoir) called her out for being a “sexual predator” (words which she herself uses in the book).

Dunham got super pissed.

And her sister Grace responded by dropping some queer-theory-lite on the right-wing haters, which I’m sure they totally understood.

The backlash is still going strong, Dunham has since canceled book-tour dates in Europe, and she hasn’t tweeted in four whole days.

While the L.A. Times thinks [Dunham shouldn’t even be allowed to vote](, she was one of a handful of Americans who bothered to get to the polls this week. Americans voted to make the country a little bit less sexually open: No-sex-before-marriage types took over the Senate; Nevada’s wannabe first, open, trans lawmaker Lauren Scott lost, as did pro-choice crusader Texan Wendy Davis.

Harvard is finally offering a course we’d like to take: a primer on anal sex. And at UPenn, professor Kenneth Goldsmith is encouraging students to binge-watch porn and write about it. Who said an Ivy League education wasn’t worth its $200,000 price tag?

Perhaps its student-debt anxiety which makes college students so poorly behaved. NBC’s Nona Willis Aronowitz traveled to her alma mater Wesleyan to see how banning single-sex frats might help defeat the campus rape crisis. Perhaps Kid Ink’s new song “Body Language” should be mandatory listening. The lyrics present a compelling, fun, and sexy guide to think about consent.

After anti-street-calling group Hollaback edited all the men of color out of its video of a white lady getting harassed on Harlem’s streets, Jezebel and a crew of ladies who aren’t white put together a video about their experiences getting harassed by white guys. “All we saw over and over and over again was the black brute and the macho, leering Latino,” one interviewee says. The new vid paints a more complicated picture (and is a reminder that horniness makes dudes act really dumb, sometimes.)

Tinder CEO Sean Rad became the second Tinder founder to step down from a leadership role after the company’s lone female founder sued for sexual harassment. What does it mean that the company that’s turning everyone’s dating lives into a shit-show is itself a shit-show when it comes to gender relations?

Perhaps we should all join these niche dating sites instead. Undertakers and stoners may be a little easier to get along with than then average Tinderer.
