Did You Hear What Happened to Charlotte King? - featured article candidate[edit]

I've nominated the article about the episode "Did You Hear What Happened to Charlotte King?" for Featured Article consideration. The article is about about an episode from the American television medical drama Private Practice that received critical acclaim and attention for its representation of rape.

I feel this article is applicable to this WikiProject in particular, as it explicitly discuss sexual violence and its aftermath and was developed in close collaboration with Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) and the Rape Treatment Center at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica.

Comments would be appreciated, at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Did You Hear What Happened to Charlotte King?/archive1. Thank you for your time.

Popular pages report is back![edit]

Hi all, the Community Tech team has been working hard to bring back the Popular pages report. The report for this project can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Sexology and sexuality/Popular pages. I've made a redirect from the older link Wikipedia:WikiProject_Sexology_and_sexuality/Popular to make the link consistent across projects. If you're not happy with this change and want to stick with the older link (not recommended), please ping me and I will take care of it. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF) (talk) 18:46, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Transgender sex workers[edit]

Hi there! I have been working on the transgender sex worker article over the past couple of months and would love to connect it with this WikiProject! I welcome any feedback! Brookeenglish (talk) 05:53, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

RfC on the WP:ANDOR guideline[edit]

Hi, all. Opinions are needed on the following: Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#RfC: Should the WP:ANDOR guideline be softened to begin with "Avoid unless" wording or similar?. A WP:Permalink for it is here. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 23:08, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Jews and Harems[edit]

There's currently a discussion ongoing on the Harem article based on changes made to the section "Slavery and the Harem System in the Ottoman Empire" The questionable insertion is as follows:

"Andrew Handler has written that Jews were the "main suppliers" of eunuchs.[21] In the medieval Ottoman Empire, Jews were one of the few groups who could move and trade between the Christian and Islamic worlds.[22][23] Although slave merchants were officially supposed to be Muslims, "unofficial" Jewish traders also participated.[24]When Islamic legal scholars prohibited the practice of castration, it became customary for Jews and Christians to carry out castration in areas outside Christian dominion.[19]"

Consensus on the talk page has unanimously been that the insertion is undue, but the editor who added it has refused to remove it. My view is that the section is completely undue and seems very sketchy, but I'm unfamiliar with the details regarding Judaism in the Ottoman Empire, so would need help from more experienced editors regarding balancing the section.

I've noticed that the articles on Naturism and Freikörperkultur (FKK) are included in WikiProject Sexuality. Someone has asked on the Freikörperkultur Talk page whether the article should be in this project, as "FKK is a movement that is about nakedness without a direct relationship to sexuality". Indeed, this assertion is made in the article. In general, there is a widely (but not universally) held belief that naturism is and should be non-sexual. Are there any opinions as to whether Naturism articles should be included in this project? --Polly Tunnel (talk) 11:56, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

New article about pussy torture[edit]

Could someone from this WikiProject review and assess Pussy torture? It's a newly created article that did not pass through WP:AFC, so it's yet to be reviewed. I am asking this here beause I found this project's banner on the talk page of one of the articles listed in the "See also" section. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:39, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
