Why is it that when men talk about desire and pleasure, no one bats an eye, but there is always an element of shame in it when a woman talks about it? Are the hushed tones, expressions of discomfort, and blushed cheeks necessary when the topic is women’s sexuality?
For a long time, women’s sexuality has been ignored and suppressed. This has contributed to a general lack of awareness of women’s bodies which has prevailed and dominated society.
Dr. Laurie Mintz emerges as a rebel, thwarting the shame associated with the topic and changing the narrative of women’s sexuality. She is a world-class psychologist, certified sex therapist, speaker, and best-selling author. Her exceptional contributions to the psychology of sexuality are specifically changing the conversation around women’s pleasure.
Dr. Laurie’s innate ability to combine science and humor to explain topics long deemed taboos separate her from the others who are working to educate laypersons on science matters. As an influencer and renowned speaker, she shares science-based facts beautifully wrapped up in hilarity that not only educate her audience but have them roaring with laughter at the same time.
Dr. Laurie is the author of two best-selling books written to empower women sexually. Her first book, A Tired Woman’s Guide to Passionate Sex: Reclaim Your Desire and Reignite Your Relationship provides helpful suggestions to get back lost passion in long-term relationships using scientific approaches. This book tops the recommendations of sex therapists to help women regain diminished sexual desire, including dealing with the stressors of balancing work and children without losing their sexuality. Her second book, Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It (HarperOne, 2017), highlights the orgasm gaps between women and men and helps address the common problem of inability to orgasm during partner sex that plagues countless young adult women.
Dr. Laurie’s vast experience as a university professor and her ability to synthesize the complexities of the science of human sexuality with a dash of comedy in an unapologetic manner helps her educate the masses on the sensitive topics of women’s sexuality- all in good taste.
Dr. Laurie’s motto as a feminist is: “Your pleasure matters.” And she is working with all her might to spread the message of pleasure as an author and social media influencer. Check out Dr. Laurie’s empowering content on her social media handles.
