Orgasms, Power Dynamics, & Purity – By Seraphina Mallon-Breiman

WOMEN AND MEN EVERYWHERE- Interested in helping de-mistify sex culture? Like the idea of generating some honest and positive information on what’s actually going on with people’s sexuality? Want to change the world and help more people feel more sexually empowered? Please take this anonymous survey that myself and a few classmates created for a project we’re working on! And help send this on to anyone & everyone you know! We thank you!

Our goal is to survey and study our cultures ideas, interests, attitudes, opinions and beliefs toward sexuality. This will include the purity myth, female orgasms and power dynamics.

We hope to learn more about the honest and unspoken thoughts of all genders, and their real life experiences from our research. We are a group of women who identify as female who have had mostly heterosexual relationships, therefore our cultural awareness is more significant to heterosexual culture but our intention is to include multiple perspectives. Our cultural backgrounds have made us aware of certain widely spread beliefs on chastity, power dynamics and sexual relations which we want to question through our research. 

      Some of the questions we have are: 

  • ·      Who has orgasms- gender/sexual orientation/age/diet & health?
  • ·      How often do people experience orgasms?
  • ·      What are peoples’ views on orgasms? How hard do they think it is to orgasm? How hard do they think it is to make their sexual partner orgasm? Does being in a relationship with someone affect his or her quality or frequency of having an orgasm?
  • ·      Who feels entitled to an orgasm?
  • ·      How does having an orgasm affect the hierarchy of a relationship? Who holds the power when only one person orgasms, or has more than the other person?
  • ·      Whose responsibility is it to create someone’s orgasm?
  • ·      How does the virginity movement suppress sexual feelings/expression? What power dynamic does that create within a relationship, could it lead to divorce?
  • ·      What does purity even mean? What does it mean to be pure? Where was the philosophy of virginity created, how has it been sustained in our culture throughout the years?

    I hail from a highly conservative society where discussing sex is unheard of. In fact its almost criminal to mention terms like orgasm, or genitalia openly. And if you have to do it you got to ensure the walls do not have ears or else you face the elder's wrath. I guess we need divine intervention so we get to talk freely abouy issues so important and core to our own happiness.

    Indeed.. we are all driven by sexual desires and urges. How else do you explain why there is fast rising trend of plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments? At http://www.cosmerience.com we have been seen young girls below 18 getting plastic surgery already.

    I think the diet is a direct correlation, but you hit the nail on the head when you said it's impossible to compare the health of people who eat western foods with those who don't and how people are very different.
