October Gathering: Women, Sex & Orgasm
Steeped in mystery? Not enough consideration? Just plain frigid? Slutty?  Women’s sexuality is a hot bed of debate and opinion. Orgasms, squirting, menstruation, multiple partners, fluidity, fisting and beyond, these four panellists who make up the team for Pleasure Forum Australia’s Women Sex and Orgasm will inspire, educate and possibly divide! Hosted by Cyndi Darnell this event is going to be a no holds bared exploration of women’s sexuality

This is a PFA event for all women and those who love them!

Panelists

Mista Samsam is a woman fond of sex and orgasms. A kinky queer fond of all kinds of sex, sometimes with no orgasm. A nerdy genderqueer warrior fond of sex with all their clothes on. An amateur BDSM player fond of mind games and power exchanges. A tart. Aloof. Shy. A sassy introvert fond of curvy femmes and angular bois. A lesbian passionate about people’s right to make informed decisions about their own sex lives without legislative or religious interference.

Clementine Ford is a writer and loudmouthed feminist living in Melbourne. She discovered masturbation early on and, consistent with her severe hypochondria, thought the resulting orgasm was the first signs of a stroke. She is a strong believer in people being able to take care of their own sexual needs. She occasionally tumbles at www.clementineford.com.au and tweets incessantly from @clementine_ford.

In 1996 Maureen Matthews decided to open a bookshop and ‘sex shop’ for women, and their partners. Bliss for Women operated until Jan 2010, but then closed (after the GFC).
However, the online business, bliss4women.com, continues to offer the same services.
She has done a lot of public speaking on the subject of women’s sexuality. She’s taught at the Royal Women’s Hospital at both their ‘Menopause” and ‘Living With Cancer’ courses. She also works with Jean Hailes for Women’s Health.
6 years ago she started writing her popular weekly column – ‘About Last Night’ in the Sunday Age. She answer questions about sex and relationships.
Her focus has always been on empowering women and couples to enjoy their sex lives, regardless of their age, background, orientation, faith, race or cultural background.
She tries to approach everyone’s situation in a non-judgemental way, combining compassion and humour with respect and honesty.

Pornographer, sexy-feminist-rant blogger and an obsessive documenter, in words, art, porn and self portraiture (more often than not, nude) Hyperballad otherwise known as Jane, has operated in circles of totally amazing, switched-on women, both personally and professionally for a great many years now. She is also a woman herself. Over 4 years working at Feck, the past several of which devoted to the Beautiful Agony project, she has shot hundreds and hundreds of regular everyday people having an orgasm, from the shoulders up and in turn interviewed them about their sexual and masturbatory experiences. This space sparked a personal interest and engagement in sex positivity, feminism, shameless self pleasure and purposeful self love.

We look forward to seeing you all at LOOP on Tuesday October 2nd. 2012
