What young women believe about their own sexual pleasure
In this presentation, Peggy Orenstein explores young women and their experience of sexual pleasure. Research has shown that women’s genitals are under siege, evidenced by the rampant increase in hair removal practices and labiaplasty, which is the fastest growing plastic surgery among teenage girls. Young women are also more likely to use their partner’s pleasure as a measure of their sexual satisfaction. What if we reconceptualized sexual experience not as a race to an end goal but rather as a pool of experiences? A fascinating and important discussion.
