The Dilemma of Desire will explore the clash between the external power of gender politics and the equally powerful imperatives of female sexual desire through the lens of our three main subjects: a scientist, Lisa Diamond; an artist, Sophia Wallace; and an erotic filmmaker, Lucie Blush; provocative women all using their work to challenge and shatter the myths about what women want. No easy task to be sure. Cultural, religious and political forces continue to punish women for wanting sex despite scientific evidence proving that women are highly sexual beings. One question drives our narrative: How different would the world look if women’s libidos were taken as seriously as men’s?
