‘Subjectified’ documentary shows that images of real female sexuality are still quite rare

Our culture is saturated with images of female sexuality, but women’s own real voices are nowhere to be found. Subjectified lets women speak for themselves, presenting an authentic picture of diverse sexual experiences from young women across the U.S.

Through in-depth personal interviews about sex and sexuality, Subjectified spans the country collecting stories from women whose sound bites are just the beginning of their captivating accounts: a young mom, an abstinent Christian, a lesbian, survivors of STDs and sexual assaults. Subjectified taps into stories too real for reality TV and too unexpected for romantic comedies. The women address their most intimate motivations and perspectives on sex as it intersects with their lives in so many ways: body image, family ties, motherhood, sex education, health, contraception, abuse, pleasure, and fulfillment. From poignant to awkward to uncontrollably funny, the interviews peer into the minds of young women in America trying their best to make sense of a complicated subject: themselves.
