She did and it led to some great conversation around sex, intimacy and what women want/enjoy.  There were both men and women included in the conversation and I could feel the energy grow and in that small space the topic became more accepted and less taboo…because she took a risk and shared a few of her thoughts around the subject.

Today, I’m doing more of the same.  Sex is not a topic that belongs in the taboo category.  It belongs out in the world…spoken about freely.  It can be a beautiful way to express yourself…to exchange energy with someone you love…it’s the root of all creative energy…if you are blocked sexually, you will have a hard time being creative.  It’s also directly connected to your financial flow…having good, meaningful sex opens up the floodgates for money to also flow into your world – Don’t believe me?  Try it! What have you got to lose anyway?

So do women truly enjoy lesbian porn?  I can’t speak for everyone but my takeaway from the Facebook conversation and the article as well as my own personal experiences is that we do.  It doesn’t mean anything about our sexuality…only that we value what shows up in lesbian porn…we see women being pleasured the way a woman wants to be pleasured…we see intimacy and connection…we see women truly enjoying themselves rather than what the porn industry thinks we want to see.  Most porn is geared towards men and what they find sexy…it’s for their visual interest.  Even female-based porn is geared for what men need to be aroused and it isn’t the same as what women find arousing in any way.

As a little disclaimer here, I don’t believe watching porn is a great way to have an awesome sex life (awesome sex life = connection, intimacy AND physical pleasure).  It trains our brains to believe that what we are seeing is “real” and it’s not.  It trains them to become aroused by the types of things we see in these movies…and most of what we see never happens in the real world so it becomes more difficult to become aroused by what sex is truly like.  It’s the same reason, men should never masturbate to ejaculation…it’s pretty difficult for a woman to replicate the speed, pressure, etc. used by the man so they end up being set up to fail. The man’s brain has been trained to enjoy a specific experience which is not going to easily happen with another person.  And the same reasoning applies to why a woman should not use a vibrator.  The female brain becomes “trained” to enjoy the sensation of the vibration and, well let’s face it, I don’t know a man out there who’s penis vibrates.  So that’s my little disclaimer…enjoy the real thing with a partner or alone.

So back to lesbian porn…did you read the article?  What do you think?
