(Content Warning: This video contains graphic descriptions of sex.)

Editor’s Note: While this video discusses sexuality between cisgender men and women in relationships with people of different genders, Everyday Feminism also recognizes the relationships between queer, trans, and gender non-conforming people.

Had enough of sex tips that suck? Most of the sex advice written for heterosexual women focuses on men without a single thought for the pleasure or needs of women.

Patriarchal ideas that tie the value of a woman to the pleasure of a man make for some really bad sex tips, and they can damage the way you see yourself.

So here’s a different kind of message. Take in this eye-opening spoken word piece about real sex tips and take your body back.

With Love,
