Sex, joy and modern science converge in this eye-opening series that celebrates the complex world of women’s pleasure — and puts old-fashioned myths to rest.
The Principles of Pleasure is a groundbreaking new health and wellness series that explores the forgotten legacy, emerging science, and candid stories about pleasure.
What do we mean by pleasure? We’re talking about erotic pleasure – physical or emotional, which everyone should be able to experience.
Many people are excluded and feel unseen when it comes to having pleasure. This series was made for those of us who have historically been left out of these experiences. We’re not only talking about culturally diverse cis-gendered, heterosexual women but trans women, gender-diverse, and nonbinary folks too. Pleasure is for all of us.

I do not care what your age, gender or sexuality is, I will suggest that everyone watches The Principles Of Pleasure. Firstly, I absolutely loved how inclusive the documentary was; interviewing people from different gender identities, sexualities, age groups, races and body types. Because of this, I felt less awkward while being so openly and explicitly being educated about a subject that is otherwise taboo. The different types of women discussing their sexual experiences made me feel comfortable in mine as well. Secondly, this will open your eyes to so much that might have gone unnoticed by you and will bust myths and misconceptions which you have held for years. And most importantly, The Principles Of Pleasure will get you started on feeling comfortable in your skin. It features women from all walks of life and will get you comfortable with the idea of your body, sexuality and exploring both because that is what it did for me. Also, they have a host of qualified and educated people who are talking about female anatomy and sexuality; doctors, researchers, sex educators etc. they have them all! Also, the data is presented in such a casual, and light-hearted tone along with beautiful illustrations, animations and visuals that it even kept my pathetic attention span on it throughout the 3 episodes. Having said that I will give The Principles Of Pleasure a solid 5/5.
