Episode 22: The pleasure is ours Asian Edition ft. Lady Jin Liberating Me

    • Self-Improvement

I tend to talk a lot about owning your pleasure. I mean, it is easy for me to say this because I work in a society where it is common for any woman to explore her own sexual pleasure or any type of pleasure for that matter.

But I would like to acknowledge the fact that for some of my listeners who came from the same background as me, owning pleasure is something that we normally talk about.

As an Asian woman who was born and raised in the Philippines, I have witnessed women in my family lean away from pleasure because, for some odd reasons, it could be considered as being selfish, self-centered, or self-absorbed.

How so? In a culture where survival was the only priority in life, women in my family were raised to nurture others first before themselves. Meaning, they were taught that pleasure comes from the joy of taking care of your family rather than pleasure for yourself. Giving yourself some time to enjoy hot baths, manicures, and pedicures, or getting your hair done, or touching yourself and exploring sexual pleasures, is not a cultural norm.

You see, these things tend to be labelled as “luxury” rather than a necessity. Sexual pleasure, on the other hand, is something unheard of for most Asian women. You are lucky if you are raised in a household that talks about sexuality in a very open way.

So in this episode, I am sitting down with Lady Jin to share more what does it look like for asian women OWN pleasure and what does it look like.


Lady Jin is a Sexuality & Confidence Coach based in New York who helps individuals who struggle to be fully expressed and connected in their sex & love life to claim true confidence, embrace their sexuality and expand pleasure.
