Grace Wetzel – Psychology major at St. Lawrence University

Today I’m going to be talking to you about sex. I’m going to be talking about the clitoris, orgasm, oral sex. I thought I should throw a few of those words out there right now so that we can all get prepared for what’s coming over the next 15 minutes.

Sex is a taboo topic, one that people typically shy away from speaking to large groups about — large groups that may even include their professors and family members. But I’m here talking about it anyway. And that’s because I have a problem with the way that we are currently thinking about sex.

And that’s the reality that straight women often have a very different experience with sex than straight men do. And we live in a sexual world that revolves around the pleasure of the penis.

In this speech, I’m going to start by talking about the ways that we define sex. I’m going to talk about the differences in orgasm rates and pleasure distribution for women and men. And finally how we can move towards a more equal sexual experience.

I want to preface this entire speech by specifying that I’m addressing heterosexual encounters only. So for the remainder of this talk, whenever I refer to women or to men, I’m referring exclusively heterosexual and cisgender women and men. Additionally this speech is directed towards college-aged women living in the current generation and sexual climate.
