PODCAST: Episode 15 – Sex Inspires My Best Poetry

Keyana Williams
aka Lady K

This week Nadine talks with Keyana Williams, also known as Lady K, the author of Sex Inspires My Best Poetry. Listen to their discussion of poetry and intimacy, and enjoy a reading from the author of her work!

The Cleveland-based author of Sex Inspires My Best Poetry: The Urban, Erotic Poetry of Lady K, Keyana Williams still does not consider herself a poet. She calls her writing “empowered poetic erotica”, with a mission to empower women to embrace their sensuality and sexuality.

Sex Inspires My Best Poetry is a steamy collection of beautifully sensual and erotic poetry on subjects related to, or inspired by, sex. The poetic verse in the book ranges from seductive to humorous, with a mostly hip-hop and urban edge. The book’s pages are peppered with sexual and sensual Hip-Hop, R&B song quotes. The book also supported by a hip-hop/poetic Urban, Erotic Soundtrack.

Besides being inspired by her own experiences, Williams says she was inspired by the experiences of friends, of relatives, and just life experiences in general, “I was inspired by thinking about some of the general things that people go through and some of the common feelings that people feel, as they relate to sex.”

Williams says that Lady K is a completely different persona. Self-described as typically shy and reserved, Williams says Lady K is a bit bolder and brasher. She describes her poetic writing style has young, hip, and sexy. In addition to vivid imagery, her poetry is rich with metaphor. Williams says that through this process she has learned to embrace her sexuality and gain confidence in herself. Her hope is that this book will inspire others to do the same.

From “I am Sex” :

“Sexual empowerment is an emotional, mental, spiritual, social, legal, economical, chemical, energetical, political, institutional and physical! accountability of our sexuality. Sexual empowerment is also about choice. That choice can be a decision to be sexual, but it can also a decision be to not be sexual. It is the choice that matters; the ability to freely decide which option is best for us on our own terms, without pressure or coercion from outside forces.

Sexual empowerment is about loving oneself unconditionally, flaws and all. It is about being wise about whom we share our energy with, understanding the unintended consequences of our indiscretions and realizing our worth and value beyond the bedroom. 

Sexual empowerment is all about knowing and understanding our bodies. The parts and how it functions. It is about advocating for access to reproductive healthcare. Our bodies bring  forth life and LIFE! This is part of our sexual responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly! We nurture the world in our womb. Therefore how can be bring forth healthy generations with worn and rotten wombs from poor choices of our past? How can we educate our girls when we have no real concept of sexual empowerment? We can’t as a result we fail our generation and perpetuate the cycle of this false sense of sexual empowerment.

Understanding your sexuality and the impact on life is part of your creating and/or revising your sexual blueprint; which is also a part of reclaiming your sexuality. Women have a very complex relationship with sexuality that contributes to the disempowerment of our sexuality and the denial of our sexual pleasure, wants needs and desires.”
