Empowering Female Sexuality Quotes: A #GirlBoner #BOAW3 Wrap-up


I spend much of my time immersed in sexuality research, which includes sorting through the overload of damaging misinformation on the web. Quotes that empower women sexually are particularly difficult to find. To say that last Monday was a breath of fresh air by comparison is a massive understatement! I was and remain struck by BOAW Girl Boner contributors’  eagerness to share incredibly personal stories and insight on female sexuality.

HUGE THANKS to all of you who participated in the Beauty of a Woman BlogFest Girl Boner Edition! Rather than share more of my own thoughts on the fest, I thought it appropriate to wrap the fest up with words from the festers themselves. The following lines are some of many that most stood out to me. (Thanks, Jen, for choosing one from mine!)

If anyone should find this page and desire to quote one of these women in a blog post or article, please attribute and link the quote up appropriately. For the full post a quote derived from, click on the sayer’s name.

“So if you are freaking out about aging and your appearance, you may have more fun in the sack than you did in your twenties even if you go through breast cancer!” — Susie Lindau

Prize Winners!

$50 Amazon gift card: Inion Mathair

$10 Starbucks gift card: Raani York

Guest appearance on Girl Boner Radio: Jean Franzblau and Kitt Crescendo

I chose these ladies’ posts because they are not only AWESOME, but work wonderfully into topics I’ve been planning to cover on the air. Rather than read them myself, I’ve invited both women to join me on the show! I’m delighted that they’ve agreed. Stay tuned for more on both episodes, in which we’ll explore the mighty clitoris and sex and Christianity.

Congrats to all of our winners and every one of you who contributed thoughts and stories, which IMO is the best prize of all. I hope you’ll all join us in February, ’15 for another round!

What most struck you about the first ever BOAW Girl Boner Edition? Any thoughts to share on a particular post? Or a line that’s been ringing in your thoughts since? I love hearing from you! ♥

    Brilliant post! I can’t wait to hear from Inion n Mathair :0)

  4. Congrats to the winners!!! I’m in amazing company up there on that list of quotes. Each and every post inspired me in some way. It was such an honor, not to mention liberating in a sense. I never would’ve thought to write something like that on my blog, and then I thought WTH? There’s nothing wrong with it; it’s beautiful!
    Thanks again, August. xo

    • That. Right there. Love that! So thrilled that you decided to hop out of your comfort zone because that poem rocked!

    • I’m so thrilled that you joined us, Beth! You brought a great deal of specialness to the fest. I’m with Kitt! Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone on our (and many women’s!) behalf. 🙂

    So many great quotes here August, a great post indeed and Raani scored a second prize, great stuff.

    • Aren’t they great! I love the tapestry the festers created — and Raani is one special lady.

        I’ve only just noticed that I used great more than three times in my reply. 😦 I must have been overcum by the excitement of Raani getting a prize. You’re doing a good job there August. See, I didn’t say great.

  6. August, I found every woman who shared something about what their sexuality and sensuality meant to them to be extremely inspiring… It was cool to see how every person approached the topic differently, yet everyone found this amazing celebration of themselves. If those posts didn’t convince that a sex positive attitude builds confidence and encourages happiness, I don’t know what will!

  7. I’m still playing catch-up, visiting sites and reading all the great posts. Awesome BOAW, August!!

  8. Brilliant, August. Simply brilliant. I loved every one of these posts. These ladies have enough shine to light up Hollywood. 🙂

  9. I WILL join you in 2015, August. I’ve bopped to some sites, but haven’t yet visited all.

    That is why your blogs with BOAW blog-rolls (GB & Original) remains in my Nifty News folder. You are brilliant, beautiful and empowering.

  10. Congratulations to the winners. You are awesome August.
