Our director took this very seriously and did not want us to simply act out our assigned monologues, but wanted us to have lived and breathed the struggle, and situation of story we were telling. We work-shopped everything in many different ways, we visited women who had experienced some of the horrors Eve Ensler talks about and we shared our deepest darkest secrets. I was performing The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy, in which a sex worker for women discusses the intriguing details of her career and her love of giving women pleasure, climaxing with a vocal demonstration of a "triple orgasm." I also performed My Vagina Was My Village, a monologue compiled from the testimonies of Bosnian women subjected to rape camps.

I was the youngest Actor in the group, so lacked serious amount of experience…let's cut to the chase... I was a virgin! I couldn't fall back on 'method acting' when it came to the long list of different orgasms I had to perform on stage, I had no clue what an orgasm even felt like. I either had 2 months to find a man and hope he made me orgasm (we all know how tough that is!) or I had listen to all the fabulous women surrounding me and learn from their experiences and journey. The process of being part of The Vagina Monologues taught me more than any book I could have read, any man I could have met, because I was amongst a safe haven of strong women who taught me the importance of being a woman - and orgasms!

I remember opening night, my parents in the 4th row about to hear their 19year old daughter orgasm on stage as a dominatrix sex worker, and i remember not caring! It was one of those rare moments you have an actor where you truly lose yourself and you exist only in that very moment, you are free and more real than you have ever been before.
