For many great feminists—Georgia O’Keeffe, Gertrude Stein, and Edith Wharton—creativity famously coincided with periods of sexual awakening. Could a profound connection between a woman’s brain and her experience of her vagina affect her sense of creativity—even her consciousness? In Vagina: A New Biography, best-selling author Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth) argues that the connection is not only real (and long-overlooked) but fundamental to a woman’s sense of self. Examining the science behind the sex, Wolf explores the biology of female arousal and its complexities, uncovering the neuroscience, physiology, and anecdotal evidence that show “what women really need” to awaken their full potential. Presented by Town Hall and University Book Store as part of The Seattle Science Lectures, sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
