Women’s sexuality – A podcast to one’s own #18
In this episode of Un podcast à soi, Charlotte Bienaimé lets us hear personal stories, put into perspective by researchers. They talk about social representations in sex, ignorance about the functioning of sexual organs, gender roles in sexuality, etc.
This podcast is a collection of short sentences that make their way into my head. They place female sexual pleasure in a broader context, that of a patriarchal society. It makes your head spin to picture attacking such a mechanism from your pillow:
– masturbation is a socially unvalued practice because it is not reproductive,
– we are taught all our life to be in control of our bodies and magically, in sexuality, we should let go,
– social inequalities between men and women are everywhere, including in bed. You won’t find the solution alone in your bedroom in front of someone you love. You have to go through collective struggles.
