The Lies and Truths of Orgasm Inequality.

Posted by Sarah Sloane on Dec 28, 2015 in communication, Media Links

One of the biggest topics I come across when talking to folks about sex and orgasm is the perceived “problem” that all people with vulvas have in reaching orgasm with their (usually) male partners. While mainstream answers to this usually focus on foreplay, there are a number of underlying reasons for the perception (and reality) of unequal orgasms between mixed-gender partners. This morning, I came across this excellent article by Suzannah Weiss, in which she points out some of the many ways that our relationship with our bodies, our culture, and our partners contribute to women of all kinds holding (or being held) back from experiencing pleasure authentically. It’s worth a read. Hell, it’s worth a couple of reads. And then some follow up thinking. And sharing. And as always, leave a comment here if you want to add to the conversation!


Talking about sexual assault survival at The CSPH

Posted by Sarah Sloane on Oct 17, 2010 in Media Links, teaching

Many of you know Megan Andelloux, and some may remember her fight with the Pawtucket RI city council to open The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health as a resource for sexual education, health, and wellness information. What you may not know is that Megan is one of my absolute favorite sex educators and I’m honored to count her as one of my friends. So, when she asked me to fill in at the CSPH’s recent “Talking About the Taboo” conference, I was more pleased to help than I can begin to tell you. While I was there, Maymay and Emma from Kink On Tap were generously recording the workshops, and the recording of my brief workshop on surviving sexual assault was just uploaded. I invite you to go here to check it out! Please note that there may be some triggering language in this video; also, if you’re interested in the resources mentioned (or my handout for the full class) please contact me!
