Is it true that sugar, spice, and all things nice are the essentials of a girl?
Why is it that we encourage girls to smile, act feminine and be polite while men can be aggressive and bold? Why does masculinity define strength but femininity represents submissiveness and weakness? Our society has defined roles and traits for both genders to dress, behave and act a certain way. And it stems from the gender inequality, seeped deep into our bones and flesh for centuries.
Dr. Laurie Mintz is a leading psychologist, sex therapist, and global thought leader. Having worked with hundreds of clients on sexual issues and psychological problems, she has a complete understanding of the plight of the women who are tired of being nice and settling for less than what they are entitled to. According to her, your missing orgasm is a reflection of a broader cultural problem- misogyny.
Dr. Mintz is a professor of Psychology of Human Sexuality, a seasoned psychotherapist and writer. Her life’s mission is to address the gender inequality in sexual encounters, a topic less spoken about and less heard. She believes that social constructs have associated niceness central to the feminine character. Women are socially conditioned to be adorable, sweet, and nice at all times, adhering to society’s unjust laws and principles. In contrast, men can defy them and still earn praise and laud. This inequality is further observed in the most intimate encounters where men’s pleasure is paramount, and women’s comes in second, if at all.
Statistics have shown a considerable orgasm gap between men and women, and a large majority of women are dissatisfied with sex. But have they spoken about it? No, because they are socially conditioned to put others’ needs above their own, including in the bedroom.
Dr. Mintz preaches women empowerment through her best-selling books, speeches, and teachings. She is breaking the chains of inequality and voicing the issues on platforms, both nationally and internationally. Her recent TEDx talk ‘A New Sexual Revolution For Sexual Equality,’ has earned her a lot of appreciation. Laurie says that change begins from home, which is why she has shunned the fear “being pushy.”’

Putting others’ needs above one’s own all the time is dangerous and breeds inequality. And that is what women must not stand anymore- whether it’s within the bedroom or beyond.
