Erotic Power

Definition - What does Erotic Power mean?

Erotic power is power from the erotic. It is something associated mainly with women and the spiritual plane. It is power that should be harnessed. After all, even today, women are still subject to abuse, vilification, and devaluation. By harnessing one's erotic power, one can fight personal and societal oppression that's rooted to male-centric notions of power.

Kinkly explains Erotic Power

The concept of erotic power was elaborated on by Audre Lorde, a feminist writer, in her essay, The Uses of the Erotic. The essay enjoyed wide readership. People who are for equality across all genders, not just feminists, generally agree on the idea of harnessing erotic power. After all, there is strength in the feminine, even as society continues to underestimate it.
