Event description

Description

Fantasies! Everybody has them -- but do you ever feel like your fantasies don't align with your politics? Let's talk about it! Does fantasizing center you in the moment? Or does fantasizing disconnect you from your partner? Let's talk about the benefits of a rich and imaginative fantasy life, and de-shaming our fantasy life.

Nancy Friday's 70's era classic "My Secret Garden" was rejected by feminists at the time. Nancy Friday thought that women's liberation would come through sexual liberation, at a time when the feminist movement was working to advance women's rights through economic and political avenues. It is the same tension we have now, still, between second and third wave feminism. Friday recounts that an editor at Ms Magazine told her: ""Ms. will decide what women's fantasies are." We will discuss women's fantasies from from a political perspective, and a personal one.

Come enjoy a supportive group of womyn in a no-judgement zone -- and no one saying "that's TMI!" Women Uncorked is a gathering for womyn only, talking about sex - the science, the social, the politics, the personal. It's a safe place to break free of cultural taboos on talking honestly and personally about sexual topics. We talk about about desire, love and relationships, our bodies and our sexuality. We talk intimately about living and loving as womyn today. We share wisdom with understanding and acceptance, and wine.

We are a diverse group of people who identify as womyn, with different orientations and relationship styles, different ages and life experiences, sharing perspectives and experience about the most intimate of topics. You can just sit and listen, and only talk if you feel comfortable. There will be an opportunity to write anonymous questions on index cards for group discussion, if you have something you want talked about but don't feel comfortable bringing it up.

Complementary wine. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage, or a snack to share.
