WP Simple Sex-Positive Glossary


WP Simple Sex-Positive Glossary automatically turns a number of sexuality-related terms into links that point to well-respected pages that provide definitions of those terms. It’s an extremely simple and lightweight way to offer readers context so that you don’t have to do the hard work of re-explaining yourself and your vocabulary all the time.

Currently, somewhere on order of ~300 words and phrases including “sexually transmitted infections,” “abstinence,” “PC muscle,” “IUD,” and “sexologist” are linked to pages that define those terms. The plugin only maintains a simple mapping of terms to web addresses of the definition pages, not the definitions themselves. The sites the plugin links to include:

Each of these sites have a great glossary of terms, compiled by some of the best sex educators on the planet.
Due to this plugin’s use of the PHP Simple HTML DOM Parser library, PHP5 or greater is required.

Standing on the shoulders of giants is the only way to reach higher.

Can I add my own terms?

No, not yet. However, you can suggest additions to the built-in dictionary by leaving a comment on the plugin page.

Can I style the glossary links specially?

Yes. When the plugin turns a term into a link, it adds a class of sspg term to the <a> element. In your style sheet, use a CSS selector like a.sspg.term { cursor: help; } to give the glossary links a special rollover style (for instance). You are only limited by your skill and imagination. 🙂
