With the first three episodes launching this month, the podcast presents an unapologetic look at what it means to be a womxn: representation, education, history, art, activism, equality, empowerment, pain and of course, pleasure.

Now is our time to tell the world.” Listen to Episode 1, featuring Marilyn Minter and Liz Goldwyn now [LINK].

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. A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO PLEASURE is raucous, raw, honest and funny, featuring the most important and celebrated womxn voices of the last century as they discuss everything from female empowerment, freedom of expression and a woman’s right to pleasure. Season 1 will debut in 2021. Listen and subscribe on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO PLEASURE (the book) made its digital debut September 2020, to rave reviews, including features in Artsy, Vogue Italia, Playboy, Dazed and more. [VIEW PRESS].
