“The erotic is a measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings. It is an internal sense of satisfaction to which, once we have experienced it, we know we can aspire. For having experienced the fullness of this depth of feeling and recognizing its power, in honor and self-respect we can require no less of ourselves.”
– Audre Lorde, Uses of the Erotic
exists because as Lorde says, “In order to perpetuate itself, every oppression must corrupt or distort those various sources of power within the culture of the oppressed that can provide energy for change.”
and we are ready for change. it’s time for us to go beyond cycles of survival and towards becoming living vessels for cultural change that is in relationship to “the erotic as a considered source of power and information within our lives.”
erotic power is the space for us to both dismantle the suppression of the eros by the colonial white supremacist capitalist patriarchy within our own soma, and to feel-sense our inherent capacity to be rooted in our power and belong to ourselves and each other.
