is a story-sharing tumblr, an extension of the documentary Subjectified: Nine Young Women Talk about Sex. Throughout November 2013, we invite you to submit your own stories about sexuality: Your sexual history, beliefs, experiences, confusions, turning points. Please share a story about your sexual self, up to 350 words.
Why? Because we live in a sex-saturated culture with precious little honest and authentic discussion of sexuality. Because speaking our truths, with all their complications and imperfections and beauty, challenges a culture of shame that impacts us every day. Because our voices and our histories matter.
Some questions to get you inspired:
How did you learn about sex? What did your parents teach you? Your school?
What was your first sexual experience like?
What do you like best about sex? What do you like least?
Have you been in a violent or unwanted sexual situation?
When have you felt the most happy with your sexuality?
Has anything ever happened in your sex life that you were ashamed of, regretted, or didn’t feel comfortable talking about?
If you have sex, what are you looking to get out of it? Was this different in the past?
Your story is important. DO TELL!
