Hello! I am a journalist working on a story for a national women's magazine about young women having trouble reaching an orgasm. This is unfortunately a very prevalent problem and the goal of my story is to try and find out why.
I am looking for young women, 19-25, who are willing to share their experiences with me. I will protect your identity to the extent that makes you comfortable. And I take great responsibility in handling everyone's story with respect and care.
The Deal: This is a piece that aims to empower women to speak up about their experiences so that they, and their peers, can attain greater sexual health and find support. Many young women feel shamed talking about this. The more who talk, the less shame there will be! And the more help we can provide one another.
I feel fortunate to be working with Heather Corinna and Scarleteen to help bring this issue to light. I think it can do a lot of good.
How to Participate: If you are interested in participating in this story, you may respond to this thread with your story or contact me directly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
