Why Women Uncorked?  

 

Women Uncorked is a place to have open and real conversations about all aspects of sex with a sense of fun, and an appreciation for the beauty of the sensual. We explore what is standing in the way of our claiming the full realization of our sexual power with other people who identify as women, to share in other's wisdom and experience. 

 

Talking about sex is fun -- sure, it's messy, both literally and figuratively. It can be wrapped up in shame, hangups, embarrassment and worries about whether we are normal. In a group of women we can feel safe to proclaim our secrets or exclaim our victories, and find support, encouragement in the camaraderie of other women. 

Many women don't have people that they can talk to openly about sex. So many conversations about sex revert to awkward silences or bawdy joking behind which everyone hides their own actual experience. In many circles of friends, people know each others partners as friends, and nobody really wants to say too much about the intimate details.

The current climate of sexuality has an emphasis on so much negativity -- pussy grabbers in chief, sexual harassment and rape, consent violations, STI's and unwanted pregnancy. Important topics all, and a long time coming... it's enough to be a real libido killer, though. Women Uncorked is a place to come and talk about what we want from sex, what it brings to our lives and our relationships, and how we can make it better and more fulfilling. We learn from each other -- straight, gay or bisexual; cis and trans, the long-time monogamous and the polyamorous, women looking for partners and women who haven't yet had one -- all these perspectives create ways to appreciate our own unique experience.

Who We Are

 

Jennifer Beman started Women Uncorked in the spring of 2016, as a research project in connection with a envisioned documentary on how women feel about their sexual climax.  She quickly found that she loved the evenings of talking about sex openly and intimately with women from a wide range of backgrounds, ages, orientations, and gender expressions -- women who share an interest and curiosity about sex and are frustrated with the social taboos on talking about sex. The documentary idea quickly fell by the wayside and she threw herself into her new passion -- creating space and new ways for fostering sex positive conversation and helping people have more and better conversations about sex. She developed an interactive art installation called the Graphic Sex Project, to carry the banner of better sex communication to a wider audience. 

Rebecca Hassell came to one of Jennifer's Women Uncorked. She had already participated in Betty Dodson's infamous BodySex workshop and was inspired to encourage women to talk about sex and explore their sexuality with the goal of increasing body pride, reducing stigma and self-consciousness, and providing education. In March of 2016, she launched Women Uncorked at the Lemon Collective inspired by Jennifer's group. When Rebecca isn't leading sex discussion groups, she is a professional chef and entrepreneur.
