“I began a seven-day expedition of sorts, venturing through each of the hues of the new sexual rainbow coming into focus at the end of a long and heady relationship storm.”
A sex expert and journalist dealt with the agony of a divorce by engaging in a sexual experiment that involved a week of sex with seven different people, which left her feeling empowered and liberated by her raw pursuit of sexual gratification and allowed her to discover a “pot of gold” at the end of her “sexual rainbow,” the Daily Mail reported.
Nadia Bokody, a sex-positive feminist and writer who is now dating boyfriend Kynan, detailed her decision to become sexually active again after her seven-year marriage dissolved.

“I began a seven-day expedition of sorts, venturing through each of the hues of the new sexual rainbow coming into focus at the end of a long and heady relationship storm,” she wrote for women’s empowerment site SheSaid.com, where she serves as global editor.
What followed for Bokody was a seven-day sexual buffet of ecstasy, new experiences and the unfettering of repressed desires. On Sunday it was Charlie, the bad boy navy diver with a “glaring potential for post-coital heartbreak.” Monday was reserved for Lisa, “a beautiful executive 30-something” who “treated sex like a tantalizing meal best enjoyed slowly and purposefully.” Steve’s “Grecian godlike body” and his forceful lovemaking style led to an “eye-rolling climax” for Bokody on Wednesday. She was exhausted by Thursday, but still made it out to see Ben, the uninhibited stud who would end up capping off a week jam-packed with sexual discovery and delight.
“I told Ben how I wanted to be touched, the speed at which I wanted him to move, even where and when I wanted to climax,” Bokody feverishly recounted. “I wanted Ryan’s eagerness and Ted’s sexual confidence, but with Matt’s detachment and Lisa’s soft, sensual touch. We finished the night enacting fantasies Charlie had given me the confidence to voice, with the same intensity Steve had ignited in me; and as we flopped back onto the flimsy mattress beneath his all-seeing Beatles poster, glistening in sweat and heaving audibly from the passion of it all, I found myself crying again.”
But those were not tears of anguish.
“Not sobbing without abandon this time, but wiping away a couple of tears escaping from the corner of my eye as I turned on my side to face him, knowing full well I’d never see him again, and feeling somehow strangely empowered in that knowledge,” Bokody declared.

The face I make when people tell me I need to dress modestly in order to be treated with respect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Newsflash: we ALL deserve to be treated with respect, regardless of what we wear.

At the end of her sexual journey, a feminist-friendly moral awaited. “Letting go of everything I knew about love, lust, and sexual gratification in the strange security of transient lovers who knew nothing of me or my history allowed me to find my way back to myself – before I was a wife, a girlfriend, or even someone’s fling,” she wrote.
And that, Bokody claimed, “was the real pot of gold” at the end of her “sexual rainbow.”

The Washington Post-published journalist previously recounted how a sex addiction led her to keep a rotation of six men for romantic encounters, sparked an adulterous dalliance with a married man and even resulted in her leaving work on her lunch break to have casual sex with people she’d just met online.
She told the Daily Mail’s Femail that she saw a therapist about her sexual addiction and codependence issues. A mental health treatment center diagnosed her with Borderline Personality Disorder, for which she still receives weekly treatment.

Bokody’s extreme vision of empowerment might get her lumped in with what detractors say is a particularly out of touch brand of modern feminism. Critics often accuse the present-day feminist movement of losing sight of what matters to the mainstream of society in favor of the outré and bizarre. In a scathing rebuke of the movement published in National Review in 2014, writer David French argued that modern feminism “actually strives to elevate the crazy, the stupid, and the just plain hysterical into the realm of actually relevant cultural and political commentary.”
