“If we could truly depict women’s desire, we might come to understand how it secretly rules the world" - writes author Erica Jong in her foreword for “A Woman's Right To Pleasure,” a groundbreaking new book by BlackBook, Dr. Marashi and LELO. And we couldn't agree more. For most of history, the female experience has been presented by and explored through the voices, views and laws of men. Whether it was John Cleland or Alfred Kinsey writing about it, Gustave Courbet painting it, or politicians passing legislation about it, the female body has often been dictated, controlled and censored by everyone but women. Not anymore. On the A Woman's Right To Pleasure podcast, pornographer and writer Stoya sits down with the bold and brave womxn who are changing these narratives through their work. Guests include artist Marilyn Minter and filmmaker-turned-sexologist Liz Golwyn, Pussy Riot activist Nadya Tolokonnikova and punk legend Alice Bag — and many more. The series presents an unapologetic look at what it means to be a womxn: representation, education, history, art, punk, activism, equality, empowerment, pain and of course, pleasure. In Tolokonnikova's words: "This is our radical act of resistance against a history that has suppressed us for far too long. Now is our time to tell the world."
