Event description

Description

Simone De Beauvoir says, “Pleasure in women is a kind of magic spell; it demands complete abandon; if words or movements oppose the magic of caresses, the spell is broken.” The full extent of women’s pleasure often exists in the spaces that go unnoticed, in the sentences left unsaid. Do we dare speak our desires? Deserve gratification? Wish to be delighted? What keeps us from pleasure? How does our relationship to pleasure change throughout our lives?


In celebration of our newest print collection from The Vault, "On Pleasure" featuring work from 14 writers & visual artists, With/out Pretend invites 10 storytellers to the stage to tell a story about their relationship to pleasure.
