Being a sexual woman
“Female sexual pleasure, is not just about sexuality, or just about pleasure. It serves, also, as a medium of female self knowledge and hopefulness: female creativity and courage: female focus and initiative: female bliss and transcendence: and as a medium of sensibility that feels very much like freedom."
Naomi Wolf, Vagina
At Electric Woman we create journeys for women to connect to their feminine power and inner knowing. Not enough women realise that sexual pleasure is a direct path to our inner power. I learned this after years of feeling closed off from my own sexual pleasure and it was a powerful realisation.
I didn't even know I had a right to express my sexual desire. This resulted in a decade of unfulfilling sex, feeling shame around my body and faking orgasms.
In 2013 I spent a year dedicated to exploring my sexual pleasure. I found a practice called Orgasmic Meditation. The work I did here was confronting and yet it was what I had been looking for – it was an opportunity to have intimacy with a partner, to feel sensation, to receive. It helped me communicate what I was feeling and how I wanted to be touched.
I began to learn that my pleasure gave me a deeper level of confidence as a woman. I was much kinder and compassionate towards myself, my body and my partner. I felt a new, bold feminine strength emerge in a potent sexual energy that brought me a freedom that I'd been seeking.
I felt Electric.
In realising how important this topic is, I knew it was essential to bring it to Electric Woman. One of the ways we've done this is by partnering with Hannah Abend to create 'Your Sexual Woman Workshop' as a way to address the blocks women feel around loving their body, expressing their sexual desires and receiving pleasure.
Our mission at Electric Woman is to help women become more conscious about their sexual pleasure and cultivate their sexual energy – to feel free and confident as a woman.
