Gird your loins for my latest endeavor
Originally published on my Substack Sherry Raw.
Hello, my friends. I hope you’re all having a great week, the shit-show that is our world, notwithstanding.
I wanted to share some news: I’ve created a second newsletter here on Substack called “Sex. With An Older Broad.”
As you might expect, its focus is sex, but, primarily, for more seasoned people like myself. Think “born in a time where masturbation was considered perverted.”
Well, perhaps I’m not that old, but you get my drift. Speaking of masturbation, I just watched a documentary called “Sticky. A Self-Love Story.” It was entertaining as hell but I’m not sure it had the intended effect because, after watching random strangers “interfere with themselves”
The doc is filled with interesting and weird factoids like this one: Did you know that in the Victorian era, doctors would massage women’s genitals as a cure for “hysteria?” As it turns out, there were legions of hysterical women because the doctors’ hands became so gnarly from their ministrations that, to save them from further discomfort, a new technology was born: The vibrator!
As published in The Atlantic, this is a disturbing insight, implying that vibrators succeeded not because they advanced female pleasure, but because they saved labor for male physicians.
What else is new?
Anyway, pretty fascinating, no? Hopefully, you agree as I’ll address a variety of sexually charged topics, with most — not all — centered around sexuality as we age.
And, because I love engaging with my readers, please let me know what particular issues you’d like me to address, and don’t hold back. I can take it.
So stay tuned for Sex. With An Older Broad. And let’s have some fun. Hell. We need it.
Thanks for reading.
