On National Coming Out Day, we explore the benefits of sexual experimentation

Written by Zachary Zane

Before coming out, Devon Moretti, age 23, was filled with “fear and shame” for wanting to be in relationships with both men and women. An Instagram-era personal trainer whose mantra is to help clients “feel confident AF in the bedroom,” Moretti describes her heterosexual sex life as having been “traditional” and one in which she routinely found herself in a submissive role. “This was in line with what I’d been socialized to believe as ‘normal,’” she says, “[so] I never questioned it.”


The first time she had sex with another woman was during group sex. As she is polyamorous, her boyfriend was present. The experience changed her life. “I later realized how well [bisexuality] fit my sexual preferences, in how it allowed me to experience fluidity with regard to the power dynamic of sex,” she tells Playboy. In other words, Moretti’s bisexuality linked her mind with her body like never before. When asked to describe her sex life now, she doesn’t mince words: “Excitement and curiosity,” she says, adding that she’s now “more open to fluctuation with women.”

No matter your sex, the way in which you approach intimate relationships will no doubt evolve when you embrace or explore an attraction to multiple genders. (I assert this as someone who identifies as a bisexual male.) For heterosexual people, separating oneself from the heteronormative world and the traditional scripts society has imposed upon us—either consciously or subconsciously—can allow one to approach intimacy outside conventional constraints, such as power politics of dominance versus submission in the bedroom.

For American women in particular, who are most encouraged by society and pop culture to be patient, giving and submissive lovers, the possibilities of sex can feel immediately endless. But while pornography would lead you to believe that almost every woman on the planet has had a bisexual experience, the Centers of Disease Control reported in 2016 that only 5.5 percent of women in the United States identify as bisexual; one-third of those women are out of the closet. While a healthy amount of bisexual women are content settling down with a cisgender, heterosexual man for their rest of their lives, many crave more.

For National Coming Out Day, I interviewed some of these women, who speak frankly about being turned on by their abilities to push the boundaries of traditional intimacy and adopt different roles in the boudoir, based on their partners. Of course, there are many obvious reasons why having sex with a man and woman is different. The permutations of physical size, body parts and positions can open the door to hundreds of new sexual experiences.

But society likes to dictate “customary” ways to have sex. That is, the man is usually more dominant, whereas the woman plays the more submissive role. That’s why any man (or woman) may find it so hot when a woman takes control, pushes you down and rides you reverse cowboy. It’s not what’s usually done on a one-night stand.

“My favorite thing about being bisexual is that it gives me more options to see myself in different ways,” says Candice Leigh, a somatic sex educator. “When I’m with men, I love being an equal or more submissive.” But when she’s with women, she loves the “masculine energy” and being a top. “[It] makes me feel powerful and assertive, and that follows me into my life, work and dealings with other people. With each of my previous girlfriends, I’ve developed a masculine side and certain qualities get refined, such as being more present, energetic and goal-oriented. I feel more driven to make money and buy her gifts.”

Devon, the physical trainer, also tells me she changes it up sexually depending on the gender of her partner. “With men, I’m completely submissive. With women, I’m open to switching roles and expressing dominance.” She also questions whether being submissive actually has anything to do with identifying as a woman or bisexual or conversely, with with the gender or sexual orientation of her partners. Instead, she believes it’s about their energy and how her partners approach having sex.  (Playboy)

Gideon Rubin began creating his nostalgic, dreamlike art late in life. “It never occurred to me that I could do it—or want to do it,” he explains, despite being son to a curator and grandson to a painter. “In Israel [his hometown], there was no inclination that I could ever become an artist,” says the now London-based artist. “I started painting late. Art was in my DNA, but I rejected it.”

And then everything changed when he was 22. While on release from military service, Rubin backpacked across South America with friends. It was there, surrounded by lush landscapes and new people, that he discovered his passion for painting—but not before ingesting a psychoactive that gave him the key he needed to unlock his artistic potential. “I took a sort-of peyote in Ecuador,” says Rubin, “which showed me that there’s more than the eye can see, that somehow you have to trust your senses. Like the experience you have as a child, when you can focus on something so minute as an ant walking or your hair in a stream of water, I found the experience poetic and reminiscent of childhood memories.”



A couple weeks later, in Salar de Uyuni, a salt desert in southwest Bolivia, he picked up the brush in earnest for the first time. “We were traveling with a girl who had some watercolors and brushes. When I put my hand on the brush, in some godforsaken place with a beautiful landscape, that’s when it felt right. It felt like something I was supposed to do. Traveling and backpacking opened a door,” he says, “but I’m sure the peyote helped.” Although he found painting in South America, Rubin struggled for years to find his voice. “I had to find out who I was first. I knew my grandfather [Reuven Rubin], and I knew his work, but that was not me,” he says of his early life. “I needed to find my voice. That happened in New York.”

Rubin found his signature style at New York’s School of Visual Arts (SVA) and later at London’s Slade School of Fine Art. “That was my initial four or five years, just training myself academically.” While he was in New York, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 struck the Twin Towers. The world and Rubin changed forever. “At SVA, I was painting from life: myself, my friends, models. After 9/11, I couldn’t look myself in the mirror. I could not make self-portraits anymore,” he says. “I was finished.”


Unable to continue the path he was on, Rubin found inspiration in discarded toys and damaged dolls. “These dolls and toys, being antiques, were missing parts: a headlight, an eye, an arm. I began to use them to make still life works. Instead of making a self-portrait in three months, I made three paintings a day. I had to clear my head and my heart,” says Rubin. “I was painting frantically.” These discarded objects were, in many ways, indicative of the nation’s condition after the towers fell.


“I painted these objects for a couple years, and then slowly shifted to painting photographs around 2005. But between 2002 and 2005, the faces slowly vanished. It slowly left me,” he says. Rubin’s faceless portraits are, ironically, instantly recognizable and an outgrowth of his fixation with the intimacy of the past, memory and loss. There is a vulnerability in each of his pieces that is no easy feat. Still, a more daunting endeavor lied ahead. Rubin debuted his Black Book at the Freud Museum in London, but he was initially sickened by the notion of painting over 18 volumes of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. He could barely be in the presence of the vile text, let alone touch it.

“When I visited the Freud Museum two years ago, I began to think about how magazines looked when Freud fled Vienna in ‘38, just before the war. Eventually, I got a bunch of German magazines. For me, being Jewish from Israel, it was a heavy subject,” he says. “I started painting on them, erasing text or imagery. There was a dark undertone to the work that appealed to me.”


Before long, the project became increasingly challenging. “I asked my wife to get me more German magazines and, to my horror, she got me the first serialized English translation of Mein Kampf, published in 18 parts. She didn’t intend on buying that,” he says. Rubin’s gut reaction was to trash the Nazi propaganda, but he “couldn’t because it was almost too dirty for the bin.” His friend suggested he make artwork from it, but Rubin resisted.


“I thought that was the worst idea, but somehow I took one of the volumes and painted the cover black. I was repulsed by it and drawn to it.” He trusted his disgust until he had transformed all 18 volumes. He admits it was “horrific,” but Rubin’s redaction of Hitler’s words renders the hate powerless. By erasing the dictator’s heinous rhetoric, Rubin is not denying the past but reclaiming it. “It’s not Mein Kampf anymore. It’s my Black Book.”

Even after completing the project, Rubin worried about how Holocaust survivors would react. “I was apprehensive about what actual survivors would think of the exhibit. If they found it abusive or hurtful in anyway, there was nothing I could do to make it better,” he says. An attendee at the Black Book exhibition quickly assuaged his fears. “This lovely artist, a good friend, brought her dad who is a Holocaust survivor, and he was in tears,” he says. “He was touched by it and especially moved by how I integrated the work, this heavy source material within the very personal space of Sigmund Freud, blending the personal memory with the collective one. They asked what I felt was different in this project from work I've done before, and I said, ‘It’s as if I was practicing for 15 years until I got to the Black Book.’”

With his artistic eye focused on the past, Rubin is still troubled by the future. “In my early 30s, I went to Auschwitz, and at the end of the visit, after a flood of tears, the guide said, ‘We have to remember, as I speak to you now, horrific things are being done.’” Rubin pauses, reflects, and mournfully says, “The world is not learning.” (Playboy)

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) released their policy on traveling with cannabis and it’s a little...cloudy.

As cannabis remains in this weird limbo between state and federal law, places like the LAX are enforcing state law to cover their own ass, but don’t get it twisted: This does not mean you can pull up to the airport and walk through security like Snoop Dogg (although that would be dope). According to the airport’s official site, “In accordance with Proposition 64, the Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to travel through LAX with up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana. However, passengers should be aware that marijuana laws vary state by state and they are encouraged to check the laws of the states in which they plan to travel.”

So what the heck does that really mean? Prop 64 allows you to possess a certain amount of the drug as a recreational or medical user. Private property owners can decide whether or not they will allow you to bring cannabis onto their premises, which is similar to a restaurant policy. Are cannabis users at risk if we decide to travel with our medicine? We can’t forget that just this year our very own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, doesn’t think good people smoke weed, but with all due respect Sesh, you can go fuck yourself. Half the country is getting high and the other half is watching us (while secretly getting high). That said, us cannabis users should be able to travel with our medicine without fear.

We’ve all heard stories of friends of friends traveling with ounces and never getting caught. A buddy recently told me that he traveled through the LAX and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) even went through his bag right in front of him—even joking about the potent smell—and let him go on his merry way. Then again, there are reality shows like Locked Up Abroad that feature people being caught commuting to other countries with illegal substances that capture what a horrifying experience it is. As soon as I posted LAX’s view on this on social media, I had friends warning me about being arrested in certain parts of the country. My response: Let’s be real, if law enforcement is using taxpayers money on cannabis dogs, then they aren’t taking crime seriously.

Since most people don’t just chill at LAX, this means you can basically travel through the airport, but once you hit security you are out of their jurisdiction. Now you are dealing with TSA—which is under the Department of Homeland Security and under federal rule. According to TSA’s website, “TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but in the event a substance that appears to be marijuana or a cannabis infused product is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.” It’s kind of like being pulled over on the road: are you going to get a friendly officer or one that hates life? The policy of the agency doesn’t change, but it’s up to the officers discretion.

People might misinterpret this as LAX allowing users to travel with cannabis so I asked my lawyer friend Alexa Steinberg, Esq. of Manzuri Law, a prominent cannabis attorney, to clarify what’s allowed and what isn’t. For one, cannabis laws still vary drastically from cigarettes, meaning you’re not legally allowed to indulge in a bit of indica in designated smoking areas. “The statement released says nothing about consumption. In fact, Prop 64 does not allow for consumption in public.” Steinberg explains. “[You] can't walk down the street smoking marijuana the same way you can't walk down the street drinking a margarita.”

Basically, Steinberg’s point is that while attitudes about cannabis are constantly changing, despite these new rules, you could be putting yourself legally at risk. As long as federal law rules against cannabis consumption, legal states must abide by regulations at the same time as they bend to acknowledge a state's loosened boundaries. In 2016, cannabis-related arrests outnumbered violent crimes according to the New York Times. Still, more changes are happening on the west coast. For example, in Seattle, Washington judges recently voted to vacate prior cannabis convictions for those charged between the years of 1996-2010 which widely affected people of color. Over half of these cases, 46 percent to be exact, involved Black people. The charges will be cleared in November and is another step in the right direction for the war on drugs—and hopefully the rest of the country will take notice or be left behind in the legalization movement.

And at McCarran International in Las Vegas, they now have leftover cannabis bins installed so people can dispose of their unsmoked cannabis before they go through security. “Although both medical and recreational marijuana is legal in Nevada, it’s still illegal on the federal level, and therefore, illegal to bring along with you on a plane. So to help travelers dispose of their weed before heading out of Sin City, there are large green bins—called amnesty boxes—set up outside”, Newsweek reports.

But before you think about bringing that ounce of weed through the airport, ask yourself if it’s worth the risk. If you are traveling to other legal states, it’s better to just purchase when you arrive. Until federal legalization passes, you are still breaking federal law once you get passed airport security. Odds are, they aren’t trying to ruin your life or make an example out of you, but you just never know. You could end up with the TSA officer who worships Jeff Sessions or one who truly doesn’t give a fuck that you’re trying to get your Grandma, who has colon cancer, high when you get to Boca Raton, Florida.

For now, I’ll stick to getting stoned at home, before I get to the airport. (playboy)
