‘Do you know what you like?’ Is a project created around the topic of female sexuality and finding out a way to give women more self-knowledge about their body and their sexuality.

Third wave feminists are claiming their sexuality. Women should just as good as men be able to enjoy sexuality in any way they like, without getting judged for it. But in a society where sexologists see that we are more busy with thinking than feeling, how do we know what we actually like and what we think we should like?

I have created a series of research tools with all kind of textures and sensations to experience on the skin. The tools could be the basis of a research into designing products for women to understand their own body better. By touching the skin with the different textures, you get a better understanding of what kind of touch you like or dislike. This could help to better communicate with a partner on what you like and want.

All of the research tools that were created.
Two people trying out some of the tools on each other.

In the future, I would hope to continue my research with these tools. I’ve already conducted interviews and test-situations with various women and am now extending my theoretical research once again. Along this, I want to also restart the material and form research.
The plan is to come up with an object or series of objects that will help reach the goal of learning women more about their bodies and their personal likes and dislikes.
If you would like to help me with this research, have an interesting view on it or would just like to have a discussion about it, do not hesitate to contact me via my contact page!
