Moan #5

Moan was born in 2018, with the aim to tear-down the stigma attached to female pleasure by liberating women and using our platform as a conversation starter.

We are depicting a female narrative, talking about sex through a female perspective and taking control of the subject; a narrative that the mainstream sex industry doesn’t often highlight.

Moan is a safe space and a judgement free zone for experiences, fantasies, fetishes and issues to be discussed within the community openly. We aim to inspire women to take control of their sexual fantasies and needs; to be turned on by their own existence and to be their own experts.

We bring out a printed publication once a year. The publication is filled with illustrated visuals and articles written by women from all around the world. The publication is very special to us as it’s all created, printed, bound, cut and published by us - it’s luxurious and a labour of love.

Collaboration is highly important to us - we want to celebrate as many art forms and independent businesses as much as possible. Below I have selected a few visuals that represent a few of our collaborations, events and workshops so far.
