As women, we are told who to be sexually, what to want, who to want, who to partner with, how to dress and how to have sex ‘the right way.’ That cultural story is based on an inauthentic idea of sexuality—not on the real sexuality of women. It’s created, packaged and sold back to us and becomes a vaguely attainable ideal of sex and sexuality that most of us never have or even want.
In fact, our sexuality is used against us and is often suspect, so we learn to put it away, ignore it or see it as dangerous. Or we allow it to be commodified and defined from the outside by other people. If we challenge this story and put ourselves out there in a powerful way, if we say what we think and what we want, we are called ballbusters, bitches, nasty women, sluts, whores… the list of insults is long.
The truth is that a woman who owns her sexuality and her power is dangerous. Because a woman who owns it challenges the status quo. But in this limiting cultural soup, how do you figure out what you want? What does it mean to claim your sexual agency and power?
