As I went through the so-called Sexhibit in Ottawa’s Museum of Science and Technology, I was surprised to find little substantive reference to specifically female sexuality. By this I mean women’s menstrual cycles.
The Pill, yes, I remember that being there. The Pill, which takes a woman’s natural cycle and puts it neatly in the trash can. No need for that, thank you very much.
It is my experience that in mainstream circles, more and more women are turning to natural fertility awareness, whether to avoid or achieve pregnancy. Even stridently pro-choice sites will include reference to the fact that some women cannot stomach the Pill.
The Globe and Mail wrote about fertility today, and some of the common misconceptions surrounding female fertility.
Don’t expect to find this info in bogus “tell-all” sexuality museum exhibits though. They’re too busy getting youth to fondle models so they can find erogenous zones.by
