Jenny Block, Ph.D and author of books including O Wow: Discovering Your Ultimate Orgasm and Open: Love, Sex and Life in an Open Marriage, is testing a new form of sex therapy in the boroughs of New York City today by traversing it on top of a mobile four-poster bed. People have been tweeting their location to her using the hashtag #PillowTalk all day for a chance to be picked up by Jenny in bed, which definitely beats those sad old horse-drawn carriages.
Jenny is a revolutionary with a simple but effective plan, as she describes in O Wow:
"It's going to be the most pleasurable and the most powerful revolution yet," she writes. "Women who regularly experience ultimate orgasms have the power to change, well, everything. It's the easiest, most delicious proposition ever. All we have to do is come."
An inability to orgasm is just one of the many subjects that some people just don't like to mention out loud, but Jenny's hope is to take the fear out of talking about subjects and showing that it can be actually fun to do so.
Her maiden roll-out in NYC was sponsored by Hot Octopuss, a pleasure enhancement company that boasts of creating the "world's first Guybrator." The company blog cited research that claimed that 69% of Americans aren't exactly dazzled by their sex lives, but they could have just chosen that racy number for entertainment purposes.
According to the Hot Octopuss Twitter feed, Jenny has really gotten around today, pillow talking with regular people and offering steamy soundbites to TV shows like Nightline, which filmed her for an upcoming segment. Her expertise in giving advice to couples seemed to work with at least one happy pair who left smooching. At press time, Jenny and the bed were last spotted careening down Fifth Avenue.
Would this type of street therapy fly anywhere else, though? We're about to see: A representative for HO told Personal Space that Jenny Block will do it again around the country and that Los Angeles, Chicago and her home state of Texas are at top of the list. This could be a first chance to talk about sex in public. Meet her there if you've got stuff to share.
