07.12 Orgasm.jpeg

Join Betsy Blankenbaker and storytellers from for an evening of true stories from the book Autobiographies of Our Orgasms. The stories go beyond the physical to the mental, emotional and spiritual experiences of women. A Q&A will follow the readings.

Poet Muriel Rukeyser asks, “What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life. The whole world would split open. In her book, Autobiography of an Orgasm, Betsy Blankenbaker told the soulful, funny and at times heartbreaking truth of her sensual path. 

"In the age of online porn, which shows women going from 0 to panting with next to no foreplay and having suspiciously regular screaming simultaneous orgasms with very little apparent effort from their partners, for women to share their stories about sex and climax isn’t just powerful. It’s a public service."  -The Guardian
