Reclaiming our Sexuality
I am on one of the most vulnerable explorations of my life. The exploration of sexuality. It is vulnerable because even using the word sexuality or orgasm in a blog or conversation brings up so many emotions and judgments.
It is one of the ways that women have been shut down. It is one of the ways that our voices have been silenced. The fear and the power connected to our sexuality.
I work with women who are healing a story, reclaiming personal power and at the core of many of our conversations is our power and our sexuality. (www.healmyvoice.org)
This is the year that I am opening the conversation, researching, exploring, talking with people and bringing the conversation about sexuality to the table.
This week in Los Angeles, Nicole Daedone, the author of Slow Sex is here to give a lecture and a live demo of Orgasmic Meditation. Located in Santa Monica.
Here is a link to a Ted Talk by Nicole Daedone.
Quotes from the talk:
*Female orgasm is vital.
*It’s not so bad for the men either. (smile)
*…and for the first time in my life, I had access to that hunger that was underneath all of my other hungers which is a fundamental hunger to connect with another human being.
*For the DSM-5, they have defined it hypo active female sexuality desire disorder. Now, I don’t think it’s hypo active female sexuality desire disorder but, I do think we have a pleasure deficit disorder in this country. And I don’t think that it’s medical, I think it’s a cultural issue.
*I do think there is a cure and that the cure is orgasm. But, it’s going to be a very different definition of orgasm than we know.
*It’s going to be a definition of orgasm that actually works with a woman’s body… We have the definition work with what the woman’s body does.
*The Dalai Lama said that Western women will save the world…I think it will be TurnedOn Women around the world who will change the world.
