On Becoming A Woman – Part 1 The first part of our special series on “Periods, Pussies, and Power: Asian American Woman & Our Sexuality” begins with what it means to become a woman. Featuring a vignette of Asian American women confessing their most embarrassing, hilarious, and cringe-worthy spills, one Asian American girl’s vagina monologue, and a story on what coming of age really means, Part 1 explores the internal and external cultural expectations Asian American women face when it comes to becoming a woman. “Periods, Pussies, and Power: Asian American Woman & Our Sexuality” is a 3-part series of stories from Asian American women about our sexuality in all its color, nuance, and embarrassing hilarity. We explore getting our period for the first time, losing our virginity, discovering masturbation, pursuing sexual pleasure, and through it all, find what it is we stand to gain in embracing our sexuality as Asian American Women.
