Closer by Sarah Barmak

Sarah Barmak attended a Learning to Orgasm workshop here at Good For Her. Over the course of 3 years, she also attended an Orgasmic Meditation demonstration and recruitment meeting, received an erotic massage, and went to Burning Man in Nevada. She read Peggy Orenstein’s book (Girls and Sex), spoke with sex coaches and average people, did lots of self-reflection and made observations on women being told that they are oversexed and that their sexuality is “not normal” ie not like men’s. She discovered that women were treating sex often like a performance, wondering if they were doing it “right” rather than a journey with many possible destinations.  In the end she discovered that “a lot of ordinary women have a bad time in bed.”

Come to a reading and Q & A facilitated by Carlyle Jansen on Sarah’s process and learning through her research. Hear what history has learned and then forgotten about women’s anatomy and pleasure. Ask Sarah what she found most surprising, interesting, sad or inspiring on her journey. Listen to her advice on finding more pleasure in your life and changing your relationship to sex- not in a how-to kind of way, but rather in a big-sister style of gentle overall advice. A fun, sexy and free night out!

We look forward to seeing you at Good For Her on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.
