From Trauma to Orgasms

Every Woman on the Planet Has Been Sexually Traumatized.

At best, we've been objectified, demeaned, shamed, guilted, and manipulated into believing that we don't deserve pleasure on our own terms. At worst, we've been groped, assaulted, raped and blamed for male lust. Betty and I have traveled the globe and there isn't a society or culture where women have true sexual equality. The clitoris is ignored. The female model of sexual response isn't even part of the discussion. Procreate sex reigns supreme. Female chastity and male dominance are the norm and, sadly, the rape culture persists.

I sat in the courtroom with my heart pounding. I had been fidgeting for hours. When my name was called I felt like I might vomit, or pass out, or both.

It started out as a day of jury duty. No big deal. I sat down in the jury room and saw that I had been quoted in Cosmopolitan online. I was flying as I reposted the article with all the excitement of a week starting out perfectly right.

They called my name to go to department 10 on the 7th floor. I’ve gone through the process of jury selection before. It’s long and tedious so I smuggled in a book for the really slow parts. I was only half paying attention until they read the charges.

The people of the state of California vs. X person, charged with lewd acts upon a child.

Oh. Fuck.

Hi Betty & Carlin,

I am 30 years old, female, and in my first healthy relationship. Sex was great for the first few months, I was able to ejaculate easily accompanied by orgasms. I was able to orgasm through oral stimulation. Then, something changed. Everything changed. I had an IUD put in and around this time I became FEARFUL of sex, of being touched.

Sex is Not to be Transcended Nor Overcome

I’ve had a very busy month as far as PSLS (personal sexual liberation sessions) go. This week I did some work with a young woman who was suffering from childhood sexual trauma.

Here’s what happened. I noticed that of the three sexual abusers she had in her past, they all had one thing in common: they were all religious, church going boys and men. The sexual incursions into her physical, emotional, and mental space we done by “nice” people.

In one case, my client was being molested, and then taken to church by the molester. Her eyes were wide as she spoke to me about the craziness of getting molested and then going to church to hear a sermon by a sex damning priest.
