Sex Talks #4: What women really think about when they're having sex
Sex Talks is a new event and podcast series exploring issues surrounding sex, desire and the female pleasure taboo.
This International Women's Day we're delving into what women around the world really think about when they're having sex and what this tells us about the norms and taboos that surround sex and the female body across different cultures.
We'll also be curating an exhibition of London-based artists whose work explores and reimagines sex, intimacy and desire. The artwork will be displayed in The Basement room at The Edition, where our panel discussion will also take place.
Joining Sex Talks host and creator, Emma-Louise Boynton is the dreamiest panel of sex-experts around, including:
Lucy-Anne Holmes, the author and activist who recently published "Women on top of the world" - a collection of searingly honest testimonies of women around the world on what sex means and feels like to them. She also happens to be a sexual priestess, and if you don't know what that is... well, you'll have to join us to find out.
