Where Good Girls Go for Sexual Empowerment!
Girl Boner is a term I trademarked after years of contemplating all it stands for: the recognition and embracement of female sexual pleasure. More than a term for female sexual arousal, for which a universal term has not before existed (there’ve long been zillions for guys!), Girl Boner is the title of my brand, website, podcast forthcoming books and activism. I also to see it as a movement and my contribution to sex-positivity.
As you probably guessed, “good girl” isn’t a judgment call. I believe the all-too-common notion that “goodness”–having big hearts and strong morals—and sex don’t pair well for gals has profound implications. On the flip side, embracing our full selves, including our sexuality and capacity for pleasure, can pave the way to unfathomable wonder we all deserve.
While much of my content is geared toward people who identify as women, all genders are welcome! I’m really grateful to have a diverse audience that includes many guys and non-binary individuals. You’re all so, so welcome here.
