My Body. My Story.

A few months ago I had this radical idea that maybe I’m not the only woman who has never faked an orgasm, who has, to the best of my knowledge, never had a real problem with orgasms at all.  When I had this radical idea I also had this thought that there might be other girls and women out there who feel a little bit alienated by all the articles on “how to have an orgasm” and “when sex ‘just happened’ and how to make it happen instead.”

(Granted, my current sample size of bed partners is two, which doesn’t make for a large survey, but I think sex partners are really only part of the equation.  If I’d had a really sucky sexual experience I might think differently, you never know.)

Which is not to say that I have no baggage concerning my body and sex.  I have lots of baggage.  In fact, most of these posts will be about such baggage.  But somewhere along the line my biology, personality, and possibly my avoidance of pop culture led to me enjoying sex from the start – enough that when I first heard about faking orgasms, my first reaction was, “why would you do that???”

I also firmly believe that women have the same level of libido as men, the same sexual capacity as men, and think about sex a lot more than they’re willing to admit in a survey.

And that – among other things – is what this website will be talking about.  Articles you will probably be able to find here at some point include what I thought of my body before puberty, how that changed or didn’t after puberty, what I think about sex now, how I deal with sex now, what I think about my body, what I think about the media and its portrayal of women and sex, feminism in general, and anything else that becomes a hot topic in the media or politics.

At this point in time I will be updating once a week on Mondays.  Hopefully I will expand to twice a week, and then three times a week, but we’ll see.  In addition, I would love to post guest articles about any of the topics mentioned above.  Every story is different and all of them are worth hearing.

This site is from me to you.  My body. My story.


About mybodymystory

Looking at things differently. I write about my personal experiences with society, especially regarding what messages I, as a woman, have received over time. I write about my body, not the body the media thinks I have or wants me to have. I write about my responses to sex, relationships, and political issues. This is my story of my body. There are a lot of things I write about that I believe overlap with other women. Come check out my story and see if you agree. Feel free to disagree, just be respectful about it.
