“Porn as a Feminist Act”

Porn as a Feminist Act

 

I was watching this fabulous docu-series on Amazon Prime called “Sex Around the World” the other day. Many women in the series talk about the connection between their feminism and porn. They talk about their work as a feminist act celebrating the nature of female sexuality. These women come from a variety of countries across the world and a number of very different cultures. They are writers, artists, dancers, sex workers, house wives, business owners, among other things.

I agree, it is a radical feminist act for women to openly validate, and discuss, female sexual desires.

At the heart of this approach I call Radical Rehab, is a noticing of the animal body’s visceral connection to sexual energy for its survival. Regardless of the sex or gender presentation of the body; passion, desire, and sexual energy contain a key energetic access to supporting a balanced wholeness of self.

Sexual energy is life energy. It is literally used to create new life. It is the continuation of our species.

Think about passion, its connection to sex and its connection to creation of other kinds. Art, Healing, and Social Change Work are some of my passions. I notice, anything that excites passion in the heart and/or the mind, has the roots of its energy in a deep body place.

I notice if I want to nurture healing and support the body and spirit to thrive, I find success when I help people to work where their passions alight.

Whether that passion directly engages in physical sexual touch, expresses itself as an art form, or as the desire to fix a broken refrigerator it is where I see both quality of life exists and thriving lives.

This feminist principle of honoring women’s’ sexuality is a passion of my heart. Working to support women’s healing and thriving in sexuality is also part of the Ethical Slut Presents: Navigating Consent project I am helping to develop.
