A few months ago I mentioned that my school’s spam filter was catching e-mails related to my Bookslut interviews & the PsychoSlut column, because of the “sexual nature” of the messages.
I’ll need to start checking my folder more rigorously, because last week I became the book review editor for Psychoanalysis, Culture, Society. Pretty
sure that you can’t write about psychoanalysis without talking about sex. (Even when you argue–as I have!–that “When we speak of sexuality . . . we are essentially just euphemizing the past.”) Apparently to the spam filter it all looks like come-ons for penis enlargers and porn videos.
