Today’s post is the second part of an interview with Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus, Clinical Director of Maze Women’s Sexual Health. (You can read the first one, which illuminates some of the common themes in female sexuality that Dr. Marcus has observed in her practice here.) I first learned about Dr. Marcus in an article in The New York Times, and instantly wanted to have a conversation with her about female sexuality for my Jewish Food Hero audience.
So much of the advice and information about female sexuality in the media is about being sexual in a relationship and portrayed as this external thing. My conversation with Dr. Marcus focuses us instead on the internal relationship with our sexuality. This interview is intended to be affirming and healing, and support you in processing your emotions and feelings about any aspect of your sexuality.
I hope this interview offers you insight into the past and a way forward by deepening your learning about the female sexual experience and validating your sexual experiences.
