Master List of Movies Rated on Depictions/Discussions of Lady-gasm and/or Masturbation!

This is the 2nd to last day of the Directed By Women World Viewing Party. It goes from Sept. 1st thru the 15th, and because I think this is an important endeavor, I have been putting up #DirectedByWomen related blog posts every day during the event. I believe that getting women's perspective into more power positions in our media is crucial for equality and for Orgasm Equality.

Most of my posts during this time have not been so lady-gasm related, but today I'm getting back to my roots. I have gone through all the SSL Reviews I have ever done and listed them out by their vulva rating. If you don't know, an SSL Review focuses only on depictions/discussions of female orgasm and masturbation (If a movie ain't got that, I don't review it). It delves into the realism and the cultural effects of the depiction/discussion and what the depictions/discussion reflect about our current sexual culture and what it adds to the discussion.

I would also like to say that I have been doing this for over 5 years, and I haven't changed much about the kinds of things I am critiquing, but I have become nicer about it over the years. Looking through the older stuff, I see that I was harsher than I should have been sometimes, and I apologize, but hey, we all evolve, right? I think I see this activism in a broader, more inclusive way than I used to. Okay, that's it. Go check 'em out! (P.S. - if you have a movie that I could review in this way, feel free to contact me through twitter or facebook)

Oh - and looking for the list of SSL Reviewed TV instead? Go HERE for that list.

W - directed by a woman
*  - Not directed by a woman, but includes a female writer
** - Not directed or written by a woman, but based on original content created by a woman
NV - This was reviewed before I enacted the vulva rating system, so the vulva rating is estimated from the content of the review
