Anatomical Diagrams Group Activity
Why has female orgasm been the subject of so much controversy and disinformation? Why are we focusing on female orgasm here? What does this history tell us about attitudes towards sex for pleasure vs. sex for procreation? How do gender regimes police attitudes and behaviors related to sex and gender and for what purpose? Are these issues different in different cultures and at different periods in history or do they span time and place? Give examples from the readings in your response and try to connect these views to what you see in the world around you, or in a recent story you have read in the NYT.
Finally, explain your experience working with the anatomical drawings. Could you have correctly labelled all the parts before doing the reading and other work in this module? Many people could not. Why do you think so many people are so ignorant of the female reproductive system and sexual anatomy?
