Synopsis: “The more I study it the more I am aware of the breadth and depth and significance of scar tissue as an inhibitor to pleasure in the body. It actually creates physical barriers to nerve transmission and blood flow, and you can’t get a good feeling anywhere.” – Ellen Heed, Somatic Educator, Sexological Bodyworker & Healer

creates physical barriers to nerve transmission and blood flow, and you can’t

TB: I know you are a great advocate for the importance of women’s pleasure. Tell me more about this. 

EH: Sexual pleasure is a basic human right that has gotten a bad rap in our sex-negative culture. The right to full personal hegemony through permission to know ourselves sexually has been categorically denied to us by many of our most cherished institutions. First, our schools, which don’t teach us accurately or adequately about our sexual anatomy.

Second, our churches, who seek to mediate our relationship to the Divine by disempowering the immediacy of felt experience and physical joy, and who also seek to define procreation as the only legitimate form of sexual expression. Lastly, psychology … Freud stated that a clitoral orgasm is an “immature” sexual response compared to a vaginal orgasm.
