How's your vagina today? Female Sexuality isn't something to keep in the closet.

Saturday, October 19, 2013




Female? You've got one.
Male and straight, you wished you had one.
Either way, a vagina is a great source of inspiration.
And confusion.
Or Joy.

Creativity.

Sheathed inside clothing, rarely does one take her own vagina out for a stroll...down to Starbucks or to the grocery or out to a gallery opening.

Mmm, wait.
Times are changing.

Home





With an exhibit such as the Great Wall of Vaginas definitely.
Nine meters long and over 400 participants in the casting.
Why?
To prompt discussion about a body part that doesn't get much light and is so much apart of who we are in so far as people and individually.
What do we think of ourselves as women (the grouping) or alone. The part of oneself that weaves within the physical and intellectual and spiritual facets. Part of our in sexuality.
 
With the rise of plastic surgery including having one's nether regions redone, it's interesting considering the open discussion
on sexuality tends to run and hide.
A paradox, but not really.
Sex sells.
Commercialized S-E-X is not our sexuality.

We all know that if you're over the age of venturing to the mall and understanding what's in the windows.
Open a magazine, and there it is.
On TV, in the movies and songs for sure.
Bring out the talk of a vagina and all talk at a dinner table either stops or starts up...rapidly. A far different reaction than say the weather or even politics.
Genitalia isn't a secret, but we act like it is.
 
The human body has the tendency to be objectified
while sequestering the force behind the reason for the season.
Sex is why we're here.
Pure. Simple.
But beyond procreation, a world exists in the realm of sexual connection. And some women are getting the shaft...figuratively.
The corporeal takes the front seat in society with all eyes on the outer package. The connotation that what lies underneath is of less value. Put it on the shelf and dust it when company comes over.
The idea of sexuality is skated upon.
Women are sexual creatures and sexuality has little to do with my other packaging. 
 
As a writer of erotica or erotic romance,
the vagina isn't cloistered. But what is sought is a tendency to reflect society in what we're told to believe.
No denying the Cinderella story is alive and well.
Point a finger and you darn well get it, four point back.

So, what to take away from opening the discussion on sexuality?
It's a conundrum in that in that it is physical, but not.
It's the visceral responses whether touched upon *pun intended*alone or with another person. Sexual release is the point where sure bonds between characters fictional or real.
Yet for women, we're driven to believe it should.
But really?
Aren't we free to explore without ties.
 
For certain, the emotional expressed in the body connects readers to the words on the page.
The ability to connect and the actual connection are housed in the mind, although we deem it the heart.
Sexuality is physical, emotional, and surreal.

But it doesn't mean I'm linked with steel fencing to another human. We're doorways for each other
and sometimes to each other.
 
Nothing to be compulsive about nor shamed.
Welcome to the world where more than half of humanity has a vagina.
 
Female?
Release your psychic wounds.
 
Explore your sexuality.
 
Celebrate your femininity.
 
 There's no answer other than to start to ponder where you stand with a vagina?
