Sex Education II

A series of lecture-performances on sexual pleasure of women*

Directed by Tjaša Črnigoj

“Sexual pleasure is the physical and/or psychological satisfaction and enjoyment derived from shared or solitary erotic experiences, including thoughts, fantasies, dreams, emotions, and feelings. […] Sexual pleasure is a fundamental part of sexual rights as a matter of human rights.” (From the Declaration on Sexual Pleasure)

Our interpersonal relationships and also our sexuality are (still) marked by patriarchal relationships. Numerous testimonies about sexual violence indicate how deeply rooted misogyny still is in our society. At the same time, there is a lack of structures that would recognise sexual pleasure as an important source of comfort, satisfaction and empowerment, while prioritising persons, repressed in the society, in the process. Through collecting personal stories and collaboration with experts, the project will give space to sexual pleasure of women* and shed light on it from different points of view. A series of lecture-performances will inform the audience, and at the same time tackle the topics of sexual pleasure with different performing practices and strategies.

* by women we mean all women (trans, intersex and cis)
