Women and sexuality

Social-sexual anxiety

“Women in this culture live with sexual fear like an extra skin. Each of us wears it differently depending on our race, class, sexual preference and community, but from birth we have all been taught our lessons well. Sexuality is dangerous. It is frightening, unexplored, and threatening… Many of us become feminists because of our feelings about sex… (Hollibaugh,1996: 64).”
