Women Writers On Female Pleasure
“A new sexual revolution has begun,” according to ‘Sex Drive’ author Stephanie Theobald, “and this time round women are in the driving seat.”
Stephanie set out to prove the truth of this statement in a road trip across the US in which she learned among many other things, the art of self pleasure from female sexual liberation pioneer, Betty Dobson and the freedom that comes from bearing your breasts in front of 600 women in a programme run by the author of ‘Pussy,’ Regena Thomashauer aka ‘Mama Gena.’
Stephanie’s written account of her adventures in sexual awakening was published not long after author Isabel Losada, probably best-known for her bestselling ‘Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment,’ published ‘Sensation - Adventures in Sex, Love, and Laughter.’
Realising that she had somehow managed to omit an exploration of sex in a decade’s worth of writing about happiness, Isabel went on to spend a year finding “out every single thing […] about sexuality and what makes it work.” Her forays included “a women’s workshop where she [had] to get naked,” “the first international conference on clitoral stroking,” and work with tantric masters on “mystical sensations.”
30-year old journalist Felicity Morse also answered the invitation open to women alive in the 21st century to find a sense of self and access to personal power through an inquiry into sexuality. Felicity’s ongoing and circuitous journey resulted in ‘Give a Fu*k,’ a book that not only emphasises the importance of feeling, elevating it to the level of a superpower but also restores sex to its rightful place as “one of the fundamental benefits of being alive.”
For Women’s Day this year, the London OM Community brings together these three women to share the inspiration from their sexual explorations including what they discovered about themselves, sex, and pleasure along the way!
