About Us

She Explores Life (SEL) is a women’s self-discovery and sexual empowerment publication covering entertainment, LGBTQ+ topics, lifestyle, health & culture from an intersectional feminist perspective. (SEL) was created by queer women bent on empowering women and people with uteruses (and their feminist allies) everywhere and smashing the patriarchy one orgasm at a time.

She Explores Life powers its sister podcast Locker Room Talk & Shots Podcast, a queers women’s show that covers an array of sex topics affecting women with the goal of removing shame, judgment, and male toxicity from the conversation while giving voice to women’s perspective.

Our Mission

She Explores Life’s mission is to liberate and elevate women’s voices and perspectives on all of the topics that affect their lives. We believe that sexually empowered women are safer, stronger, and more powerful women in all areas of life. And we are fighting the patriarchy one story and one orgasm at a time.
