She also sells 3D clitorises. Based on her expertise in gender stereotyping, she has contributed to the development of the Pubergids and the Kriebels in je tummy teaching package.
Elise's starting point is that the sexual oppression of women within the patriarchy is the root of women's oppression in general. The most important way out of this oppression is therefore through sexuality.
Based on Voluptuousness , Elise takes to the barricade to end sexual inequality.
Elise: "My mission - and the motivation for my book - is to help women free themselves from the restrictions placed on them sexually, so that they can shape their sexuality according to their own understanding and desires. Voluptuousness is based on my education, years of work experience, and the stories of the hundreds of women I have treated in my practice. It includes information and images of the vulva and clitoris, and extensive explanations about how sexuality works. In addition, I debunk myths about female lust, and describe I see how obstructive the shame and insecurity about their own body can be. Finally, I provide tips that help women (again) connect with their own body and sexuality."
This liberating book teaches you how you too can enjoy sex more.
