SEX POSITIVE FEMINISM

monique aislabie

SEX POSITIVE FEMINISM centres on the idea that expressing your own form of sexuality is an essential component of liberating women’s rights.
For example in certain cultures, particularly countries that are influenced by Roman Catholicism, the belief in traditional ideas of masculinity and female purity has led to what many interpret as a double standard between male and female sexuality. Men are expected to be sexually assertive as a way of affirming their masculinity, but for a woman to be considered ‘good’, she must remain pure and sexually passive.
Sex-positive feminists work to embrace the entire range of human sexuality. They argue that the patriarchy limits sexual expression and are in favour of empowering people of ALL genders to explore their sexuality without judgement.
