Why would a sane, sensible person who uses their real name do such a thing as talk about sex?
Honestly, because I have come to the conclusion that I am a grown ass woman, and I have nothing to be ashamed about when I say, I have sex.
Like a drop in a pond, each woman that lets go of sexual guilt and shame empowers yet another woman to do the same. My turning point came when I had the privilege of spending a weekend with Betty Dodson and Carlin Ross. It changed my life profoundly.
What I took away from that experience was that sex is not some icky thing that I should be ashamed of and keep in the dark recess of my bedroom. Sex is normal, sex is natural, sex is universal, sex is my birthright. I own my sexuality and I own my sex organ, and so do you.
I will dare to discuss sex right along side all the other topics of my life because that is just what sex is for me. One of the many things I do, and enjoy and find pleasure in the experience of, both alone and with a partner. Gasp!
So no more hiding because some arbitrary set of persons decided that my sexuality is not a part of my human, female experience. I say that it is, and I will discuss my thoughts about sex right along side my thoughts about other topics. Mostly, because I can, and when I do, I hope another woman will feel less alone, and more normal, and have their own moment of sexual confidence.
