Saw this somewhere on the interwebs and can’t for the life of me remember where. Anyways, it’s awesome and so goddamn true. Also, I totally love this woman. She is kind of bonkers, but in the most brilliant way. I do enjoy her counter-objectification and probably shouldn’t, it’s my (now, not so secret) guilty pleasure.
I am finally starting to feel better peeps. Slowly but surely.
Pictured are the amazing ladies from the Pleasure Salon I wrote about attending a few posts further down this page.
It is absolutely incredible that this article was posted on the FRONT PAGE of The Age newspaper – a positive, informative and balanced piece about sex positivity, feminist pornography and holy fucking Babs, in the context of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
This gives me so much hope that we *can* become a far more sexually progressive and forward thinking society.
Also, my works websites are listed right there in the article! Craziness!
I ventured out to my very first Pleasure Salon a short while ago and I not only thoroughly enjoyed myself, I was totally blown away!
I have been meaning to get my ass out to these evenings for way too long and it just so happened I knew some really brilliant ladies who were on the panel to speak.
The topic was oh-so close to my heart: ‘February Pleasure Salon Melbourne celebrates sex-positive erotic films, feminism and pornography’
There were short films shared from each of the panelists and wonderful, interesting, insightful and at times contentious words shared. I believe all stimulating conversations have differing points of view and there certainly were unique points of view, at times.
I was so, so thrilled for the women I knew on the panel, they were bloody incredible. So very engaging and articulate about their motivations and experiences surrounding the porn they started off in the industry doing, the porn they now really want to see and in this instance are actually creating themselves.
Make with the linky to go read the words and if you so desire, see the boobies of, the excellent Liandra Dahl
I have walked away from an awesome evening totally fucking inspired. I want to make more porn, I want to be in more porn and I want to create more of my own porn. I definitely want to talk and share and rant about everything sexy and it’s so precious to me, this fire and drive.
Pleasure Salon has definitely helped to reignite my passion for being the change I want to see in pornography and general sexy business.
If you’re in Melbourne, go experience the joy and wonder for yourself! Pleasure Salon Melbourne
I was reading something online (I’ve stupidly forgotten where, what a genius!) and a somewhat off the cuff comment was made that you can’t be a beautiful, feminine Goddess and a filthy, submissive whore. One negates the other.
My immediate reaction was, why not?
I consider myself both and a hell of a lot of other things as well as those. Why does enjoyment of submissive sex exempt you from being able to feel like/be a Goddess? When I think of the characteristics I consider Goddess-like, the ability to trust and to be vulnerable are high on the list. I associate feeling like a Goddess with powerful, feminine energy. Does that mean when I want to be spanked and held down that I instantly become powerless or unfeminine? I find it’s quite the opposite really…
My underlying issue with the entire concept is that it pidgeon holes women based solely on a sex-act. Aside from anything else I significantly doubt anyone has the same kind of sex consistantly and why are we defining anyone by the way they like to fuck?
Why does female sexuality have to be broken down into an easily swallowed, 2 dimensional box? Not to mention once you’re in a certain ‘box’ you had damn well better stay put. There will be NO multifaceted or evolving sexual growth here, make your choices and make them well.
Do these notions exist because it’s easier to understand? Or is it because people are really that ignorant?
I honestly do not know, but it really, really bothers me.
