Over a year ago, I created a resource list as a freebie to share with people what to read, watch and absorb when it comes to sex.
Only that, having it as something to download makes it feel a bit fixed and isn't easy for me to edit. I see this list as a living, breathing thing that can keep being added to (and maybe even subtracted from).
My resource list has been growing for a long time. I see it as a succinct summary of what sources of creativity others have birthed that shed light on female sexuality. Before you read on, please note that some of these works are overt and some of these are subtle. Some you will already know and some will be new to you. Some you learn from and some you are a mere witness.
And best of all, most are easy to access from the library (free!) or Amazon and content is available to stream through Netflix and Stan. Easy!
Last thing, there are lots of art forms that contain sex but I have tried to keep it to quality art forms that pivot around female sexuality, experiences and desire. Also keep a look out for documentaries on sex that are pretty eye opening on streaming services.
Pretty soon, I'll be able to add my own book to the list!!
