I’m drawing yet another article to your attention readers here, it’s not too long and very interesting, and it’s about the British censors finally allowing female ejaculation on screen.
I agree with the writer, that there is irony in an industry full of fakery taking this long to allow something real. And it seems amazing as recently as 2002 the BBFC was still saying that female ejaculation didn’t exist. What is worse, I think, is that so many women are still embarrassed by it and don’t know what it is. Women and men who don’t know what or where the female G-spot is, hell even science is confused by it never mind your person on the street (or should that be in the bed?).
Female sexuality is a tricky thing, and in the last decade or so there seems to have been a trend of “embracing” it by taking pole dancing lessons and sleeping about. When talking to my mother about this, her words were “In the sixties when we marched for equality, it wasn’t for this.” Personally when sleeping with a bunch of people is viewed as the same for both sexes not stud vs. slut I’ll view it as equality.
But how do we embrace out sexuality without turning into something that would make Jordan blush? And is there even a problem with this?
I am a very sexual person, I am happy with my sexuality, I like men, I like women, I like pleasure and I’m open about this. Though I’m picky about who shares my bed, I’d flirt with a table leg given the chance. I have slept with people just for the pleasure of it, as opposed to wanting to connect with someone on a more intimate level. And to be honest I do have a problem with women who fuck about for the hell of it, but, and here’s the important bit, I have just as much of a problem with men who fuck about for the hell of it.
I don’t think striving for equality and embracing our sexuality should be about being able to binge drink, start fights and shag round the whole town just like men can and be respected for it by our peers. Because there’s nothing to be respected about it, though I suppose we’re now being despised equally as idiots.
The whole point of gender equality and feminism was to prove we could do the same things a man does and just as well. Not to prove we could do the same things a man does and just as badly.
As women we have our own faults, we don’t need to take on theirs as well.
