Women's Sexuality

Conversations with the Next Generation about Sexuality:  Their Bodies,
Their Relationships, and Their Power
A mother naturally conveys through her words, actions and relationships how she feels about
sex to her daughter or to the young women under her wings.  But is the message consciously
what we think is really important about embodied love? Can we frankly answer their questions
about sexual functioning? Do we denigrate our own bodies, unhappy with our shape?
Do we have vibrant, intimate relationships with our partners or are we too busy for and too
hopeless about sex? How can we help young women stay vulnerable to love and yet armed
against the risks of rejection and exploitation?  Laurie Watson will help us answer these
questions, and many more.
