Sexual Empowerment, Reframing Pain, Autism Experiences, Sex Work and More

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Offering a deeply personal account and powerful critique of sexual empowerment movements, Suzannah Weiss presents a way forward that focuses more on what women desire, and less on what men desire from them.

She makes a bold yet compassionate call for women everywhere to inhabit their bodies and hearts ― to remain connected to their inner eye and their inner “I,” even in a world where they are disproportionately “you,” “she,” or “them.”

HERE’S WHAT WE DISCUSS

  • Reframing attitudes towards menopause is important to celebrate the positives of this life phase and challenge societal beliefs that devalue women in menopause.
  • The objectification of older women in medical contexts can lead to dismissive treatment of issues related to desire and pleasure, highlighting the need for more inclusive and comprehensive healthcare.
  • Understanding and addressing period pain requires recognizing that pain experiences vary among individuals, and it is essential to validate and investigate severe pain rather than dismissing it as normal.
  • The orgasmic birthing movement promotes a positive and pleasurable birthing experience, emphasizing presence, breath work, and sensory awareness to enhance the intensity and pleasure of childbirth.
  • Supporting autistic individuals in dating and sexuality involves celebrating their strengths and unique experiences, promoting positive relationships, and challenging societal stereotypes and assimilation efforts.
  • Pleasing and empowering women in the bedroom requires men to understand and respect boundaries, communicate openly, and prioritize mutual pleasure and consent.
  • Changing attitudes towards masculinity and sex work involves recognizing the potential for men to use their sexuality for good, promoting respect and consent, and challenging societal shame and stigma around sex work.
  • Teaching meaningful consent and embodied consent involves tuning into one’s body and feelings to determine consent, promoting open communication, and reframing consent as an ongoing process rather than a one-time agreement.
