Let's talk about sex.
What is Pleasure Maps?
Pleasure Maps is an arts & storytelling project exploring how humans relate to and live their sexuality.
Why does Pleasure Maps exist?
Most sex narratives present today are grown out of media and religion-centred cultures. None of these are true reflections of human sexuality. Pleasure Maps is an opportunity for everyone to actively shape what it can mean to be sexual; one story at a time.
We stand for expanding the existing narratives around sexuality; for making them more human. Our stories and questions too often stay unshared while sexuality remains a central part of how we relate to ourselves and others. There is too much silence between lovers, friends, families and strangers. We believe that unearthing stories can empower, heal and connect those who give and receive them.
How does it work?
We interview people and work with artists; you get stories. We aren't funded but if you'd like to offer advice about funding, or collaborate in any other way, especially as a storyteller or an artist, please get in touch.
Who is Pleasure Maps?
The project runs as a community effort. We are storytellers, artists, researchers, and curators.
We hope to help, one story at a time.
What's next for Pleasure Maps?
We are taking Pleasure Maps to Latin America and working on making the site multi-lingual to make sure nothing is lost in translation.
