On April 16, 2009, Wendy Knerr presented a Pleasure Project workshop to a Share-Net meeting in the Netherlands. Share-Net is the Dutch network of development organizations and individual consultants working in the field of sexual & reproductive health and rights, and HIV. Among those present were members of the Universal Access to the Female Condom Joint Programme (UAFC), who published an article in their newsletter about the meeting.
Wendy Knerr proudly shows us a pink little bag. “this is what is sold in one of our partner countries, it is so cool, and so sexy!” We all wait curiously when she opens the bag. “ Look!” , she says while removing a transparent object with a white ring. Enthusiastically she explains that this object enhances sexual pleasure: the white ring should be inserted in the vagina of the woman; she can do it herself, or even better: ask her partner to do it. The man enjoys the top, the woman the outer ring. “This is such a sexy tool to prevent the woman from pregnancy and STIs! It is called… a female condom.”
Thanks for the great write-up!
