Did you happen to hear they’re bringing sexy back? Got the thousand yard stare of the passionless? Pitiful dried husk of your former self? You don’t have to stay anhedonic and snappily unhappy. The delightful pleasure-mad persona of one Regena Thomashauser, AKA Mama Gena,is a 40ish hausfrau on a mission to get women to drop the self-sacrifice and embrace relentless pleasure, doing themselves and their men a favor in the process.
A one-woman demolition team against the stubborn idea that men should just know how to please you, Mama Gena conveys the message that when we start getting all Puritanical and pleasure-avoiding, we are not only not having any fun, we are not fun to be around. And that’s not very sexy. And in Mama Gena’s world, sexy is the basal building block of life, a kind of dynamic DNA that charges all interactions whether romantic or platonic. Sexy, ladies, is fun.
At her School of Womanly Arts in NYC, Mama Gena gives weekly classes in both man training and pleasure fulfillment, an art she considers to be lost. To become a Sister Goddess you must tell men and yourself EXACTLY what you want (meaning you gotta identify it) then ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT. Get over yourself, just get what you want, never mind how; men are dying to provide it for you and you’re gypping them by being so opaque, Opal.
This is the bedrock wisdom from which Mama Gena spins her theories on pleasure and why it’s not a decadent evil thing, but a natural law in decline…though revivable.
Now Mama Gena has apparently gotten divorced but don’t hold that against her. Ain’t nobody happy if Mama ain’t happy, right?
