Tracy Clark-Flory is a senior staff writer at Jezebel and author of Want Me: A Sex Writer’s Journey Into the Heart of Desire. Her book explores the messages we receive from society about sex, intimacy, and pleasure and how this shapes our sexual lives and identities. She explains how sexual empowerment has been watered down and twisted into an individualistic approach and why it’s critical to think of the larger cultural and collective context. Today, she also talks about orgasms, porn, reckoning feminist values with sexual fantasies, and how sharing our experiences can be transformational and help us broaden the conversation around sex and our bodies.
