Pussy: A Reclamation by Regina Thomashauer

 

If you’re not easy with the word pussy, then you need to be.  This book is all about discovering and living by your pussy power.  Refreshing, funny, and revolutionary, this book is important for women who just need to step out of the pressure of pleasing everyone else, and learning to listen to their own voice.  This isn’t just about sex, or about having sex lots, it’s about listening to your inner voice (Regena labels this your Pussy Power) but really it’s about your inner gut instinct. It’s about pursuing pleasure (not just sexual) and being ‘cliterate’ (love this word play).  In a masculine world, being cliterate means not being ashamed of being a woman.

My favourite quote:  “We want experiences that continually break and remake us into the radiant, powerful, erotic women we were mean to be. We have been conditioned to believe that people outside of ourselves – teachers, parents, husbands or priests and rabbis – will do that for us, more powerfully than we could do it on our own. But how could anyone do it better than we women can do it ourselves? We each have the divine inside of us, the Goddess within. She wants to have her voice, her choice, her day in the sun. Pussy has been buried under 5000 years of patriarchal conditioning, but thankfully she is ready to reemerge.”
