Embracing Our Sexualityby Mark Lipman
Women talk about their sexuality
Embracing Our Sexuality is a fascinating look into the conversations of nine women who gather together for a weekend to talk about sex. The women range in age from 21 to 71 and come from diverse racial backgrounds and sexual orientations. In this intimate video produced, directed and recorded by women, we see the openness and warmth which evolves as the women share their questions, experiences and concerns. The women talk frankly about sexual orientation, menstruation, masturbation, sexual fantasies, orgasms and the effect of AIDS and sexual abuse on their lives. Both serious and humorous, the wide range of experiences offers a unique opportunity for all viewers--women and men--to talk about their sexuality. Note: See companion video Finding Our Way
Have you ever dreamed of a safe place you could talk about sexual issues from abuse to the tenderest of pleasures? This film invites you to just such a place to be among nine women in all their diversity. These warm, direct, touching, intelligent, heartful, accepting women inspire trust - and evoke your own story, perhaps one that has not yet been told.

The diversity--in age, culture, race, sexual orientation--of the women who very candidly share their experience with us, makes it possible for any woman to identify herself and find herself represented in this film.
