horizontal with Pamela Samuelson, @embodyworkla , in my bed at Hacienda Villa. Brooklyn, New York.
Have you listened to her episodes? 50. your pussy is not a sheath: horizontal with a vagina whisper and 51. take back the speculum: horizontal with a modern rosie the riveter. They inspire me, school me, and delight me.
Pamela is a bodycare witch, a sex ed teacher, a renegade, an instigator, a libertine. Or perhaps she’s really more of a wizard than a witch. A sexy female Dumbledore minus 50 years. Gravitas and twinkly eyes.
As a bodywork specialist, she is trained in sexological bodywork, holistic pelvic care, and the Arvigo techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. This means that she works on the pelvis and the pussy, inside and out. She's a warrior of bodily empowerment.
I admire her deep.
We first met the day before we were supposed to record, in the gender neutral bathroom at an event called @cyclesandsex which is about pussies, not bicycles. Pamela was leading roomfuls of women in a campaign called “Take Back the Speculum,” which is part anatomy lesson, part show and tell, and part hands-on practice. Pamela shows the sexual anatomy of her own body, by inserting a speculum, and allowing the participants to see her cervix with a flashlight. Then, the participants are given a speculum, and get to try it on their own. I didn’t do it that day. You’ll find out why in the first episode.
We talk about ambiverts, cervical self-exams, femme-drag and bespoke suits, wonder women, moving people’s wombs into a more optimal position, arousal vs. wetness, the husband stitch, and Pamela’s viral rant.
My dear Instagram viewer of lovely and colorful things... Won't you be my listener?
Come lie down with us!
