Witchy-Woo's Wednesday Wow...

...is another one from Alyx at Mad Sheila's Musings.

In her post The Performing Sex, Alyx examines "the sexist co-option of female sexuality" and "how female [sexual] desire has increasingly become a performance of desire".

It's an excellent piece delivered in Alyx's own, inimitable style.

A taster:

Faking desire and feeling desire are two separate but easily confusable things. The reason the former is promoted as Female Sexual Expression Du Jour is because it’s good for patriarchal business, and the reason the latter elicits sneers from the penis gallery is because it threatens to send that business bankrupt.

Go read.
