My June Column in Maxim About Morning Sex
Hi, thank you so much for visiting my Go Get Funding Campaign. My name is Vanessa de Largie. I'm an Australian actress, author, journalist and sex-columnist. I'm currently residing in London and pursuing my dreams. Twenty years ago I survived a brutal rape and in recent years, I have written books and articles for big-name publications about the experience - with the hope of educating others.
Every Orgasm I Have Is A Show Of Defiance To My Rapist , 10.00pm, Saturday, 15th July 2017 - Lambco Fringe Festival
After a successful premiere in the West End, Australian actress, journalist and sex-columnist, Vanessa de Largie brings her autobiographical one-woman-show to the Lambco Fringe Festival. Based on a controversial article she wrote for The Daily Telegraph. Every Orgasm I Have Is A Show Of Defiance To My Rapist is a raw and confronting piece of theatre about rape, trauma and healing through one's sexuality.
I crave them, pursue them, slay them and discard them. Unapologetic sexual liberation comes at a price for all females. The opprobrium of being associated with promiscuity and salaciousness. What is it about 'dick' that consumes my days and nights? Am I looking to be filled up or fulfilled?
THE hospice let my mother die while I sat and watched. I'd been called in for an appointment with the hospice staff where I was cornered in an office and bullied into agreeing that 'a care pathway' was the best option for my Mum.
I like 'fucks' that have no name.
I find male ejaculation truly sexy. Whether I'm watching a man wank or whether he's about to make my face his canvas. Semen coming my way (pardon the pun) is a beautiful thing. Below I've collated a list of 30 things to say, which should have him unloading his junk in no time.
On April 28th, I performed my one-woman-show about my journey through rape to an audience at The Tristan Bates Theatre in the West End. As an actor, it has always been my dream to perform on London's West End. And last week that dream manifested with the assistance of a tutor from The Actors Centre.
Damian's dead body was found on the floor of his flat when he was only 34-years-old. I was his baby sister and I was only 23 at the time. Ne...
Well, today that dream manifested.
I am thankful to have witnessed the other solo performers who presented their 'new works' today.
I am also incredibly grateful to our wonderful tutor Colin Watkeys, The Actors Centre and the Tristan Bates Theatre
A Sexual Conscience - Interview with Vanessa de Largie, Australian Actress, Author, Sex Columnist, Journalist and Blogger
Vanessa de Largie hails from Australia and is an award-winning actress, author, prolific sex-columnist, freelance journalist and blogger. Her novels explore the dimensions of female sexuality. She has worked as an entertainer for over 20 years, engaged in film, theater, television, radio, voice over, compère, spoken word and photographic modelling.
I received my official 'international artist' membership card last week. What an honour! Have posted 2 pics below!
Philip Hunt is a domestic violence advocate, whose work primarily focuses on men. One in three men are victims of sexual assault, family violence and abuse with 94% of perpetrators of partner violence against males being female. A 2012 survey reveals that both men and women experience substantial levels of violence.
I have felt sexual my entire life. Before I started masturbating, I would fantasize about a group of men touching my cunt, my breasts, my mouth and my anus. I was 16 when I lost my virginity but I wish I'd lost it earlier.
I'm a mistress, and rather than condemn me, you might want to thank me for saving your marriage. According to Sexual Health Australia, 70 per cent of all marriages experience an affair. Most estimates indicate that 45 per cent of women and 60 per cent of men are willing to report that an affair has happened sometime throughout their marriage.
Very occasionally, one discovers a writer whose work they instantaneously connect with. This happened to me, when I first read the poems of prolific Canadian talent -- Ryan Quinn Flanagan. Flanagan is an artist that doesn't like to speak about himself, which is refreshing in an era of raging narcissism and shameless self-promotion.
Do you know how many marriages I've saved in the last decade with my mouth, pussy and anus?
I believe 'empowerment' can only be self-determined. What I find empowering, you may not. And vice-versa. There seems to be much debate online on whether nudity, porn and promiscuity is empowering or degrading to women. Again, I believe only the individual can be the judge of that.
JANUARY 2017 - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Dear Blokes, I am writing this letter to apologize for all the man-hating you receive on a daily basis. I honestly have no idea how you cope as well as you do. In recent years on social media, there's been a never-ending stream of vitriolic articles and commentary targeting you.
Vanessa de Largie's articles in Maxim Magazine.
I'm yet to come across any man who doesn't appreciate a video of a woman masturbating and coming. Not only is it fun to send him. It's fun to film. Get creative! I use the film-camera on my phone. It does the job. (cough). 1. Film yourself masturbating.
The men who get away with sexual assault. The men who walk around this world blemish-free amidst rape or sexual abuse accusations. The men with famous names like Roman Polanski or Bill Cosby who are rewarded with more opportunities to sexually assault women.

I'm a woman that loves to fuck. And I make zero apologies. I'm keen to fuck anywhere, any place, and anytime. Just say the word! In my world, there is nothing better than having a dick deep inside of me. It makes me feel safe. It makes me feel free.

Yes. Yes. YES. Oh, Lordy. Yesss! Have you heard the news? Priceline Pharmacy now sells a range of vibrators called Smile Makers which are being advertised as "personal massagers". Finally, Australian women can purchase sex toys along with their toiletries without having to skulk through seedy adult shops.
Is there anything more stunning than an erect cock? A glistening cunt runs a close draw, I guess! I've written a ton of articles about my love of pussy but right now I just want to focus on dick. One only has to look at architecture and art history to witness phallocentricity.
Nessa & Bella
I wake up this morning to discover the producer of several of the films I starred in (and my old-time friend), Belinda Lim has died -- so so young.
My heart goes out to her wonderful man, Scott at this very sad time. Who has endured and lived through so much.
Bella and I had some great laughs during our friendship. In time, I will write an article about this wonderful human being who was so generous.
But for now, I would like to offer my love and condolences to Scott and everybody who had the chance to be affected by Bella's light.

On my 21st birthday I officially declared to my parents that I would never get married or have children. I'm now 39 and I've defiantly stuck to my guns. Amongst my friends, I feel like the adolescent who's never grown up. At 39, my freedoms are much the same as they were 20 years ago.
Being fucked by a group of men is what I call -- true beauty. What an honour it is to gift orgasms to a beautiful feast of males. What an honour it is to receive orgasms via a group dynamic. Women who partake in group-sex with fare much better, in my experience.
I often ponder how different my life would have been if my mother hadn't passed away when I was a young girl. She had battled with a terminal illness for as far back as I can remember, finally succumbing to it when I was eight years old. I remember the day so clearly.

Vanessa de Largie's Very Public Flogging For Wanting Kim Kardashian To Die... Which Wasn't Even True To Begin With - New Matilda
Kim Kardashian's name doesn't make the pages of New Matilda very often. This appearance is even less edifying than the first. Vanessa de Largie takes up the story. On October 11, News Corp's RendezView published a column I wrote about Kim Kardashian West.
Often I find myself in tears, like this morning. Tears of frustration. Tears of defeat. Black eyeliner running down my cheeks making me look like a sooty mess. I hug my pillow in my room and scream into it for release. One is entitled to the freedom of sexual expression -- without being censored, controlled.
Ripping into Kim Kardashian and Kate Fischer - plain old bullying or 'public interest'? | Amanda Meade
The Australian model and actress formerly known as Kate Fischer retired from public life a decade ago and moved to the US, where she embraced Orthodox Judaism and changed her name to T'Ziporah Malka.
Is it possible to call yourself a feminist and in the same breath, dismiss another woman's violent ordeal? According to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph , it's possible and it's gold. The paper ran columnist Vanessa de Largie's SEO-friendly piece "I wanted Kim Kardashian to die" Monday and we dare say, Kim Kardashian would have some strong words to say about it.
A self-proclaimed feminist published an article earlier this week in which she laid out the reasons she had wished for Kim Kardashian's death during the star's recent robbery incident. Comedian Rebecca Shaw takes a closer look at the article, and points out all the ways it is not exactly super feminist to wish for another woman's death.
As Kim Kardashian continues to recover from her Paris robbery, one columnist has offered a stunning take on why it's wrong to support, defend, and empathize with the reality star. On Tuesday, The Daily Telegraph's Rendez View section published an op-ed by self-described "feminist" writer, author, actress, and sex-columnist Vanessa de Largie, who titled her piece, " I wanted Kim Kardashian to die."
Australian author and actress Vanessa de Largie penned a column Tuesday admitting she had a fleeting hope that Kim Kardashian West had been murdered by the Paris men who robbed her of $10 million worth of jewelry earlier this month.
I pen articles and books advocating to stop violence against women. Yet, I have a confession to make. When I heard the news that Kim Kardashian West had been gagged and robbed at gunpoint in her private Paris apartment last week, my first thought was: Why couldn't they have killed her?
Vanessa de Largie uses her writing voice to "speak" her mind. Luckily for us, what's on Vanessa de Largie's mind is sex. Not wearing a bra. Double penetration. Threesomes. Double-blowjobs. Swallowing during oral sex. (Though to be clear, I guess I should've said, "swallowing at the climax of oral sex".)
My favorite thing about threesomes is the double blowjob. There's something erotic about sharing a dick with another woman. I get incredibly wet watching her work on the same penis as me - it's like collaborative art. My first experience of a double blowjob was memorable.
Was thrilled to have my DP article mentioned by Canadian Sex Educator Jon Pressick in his recent column on Kinkly! Read entire article below.

So excited to have a column about my beautiful parents on SBS!

Every month for over a decade, I've been having my va-va massacred by sadists in a bid to stay relevant in our bald-vagina-times. The Brazilian Wax is a fad that was popularised by the porn industry. It's painful, it's expensive and it makes my lady-bits look like a prepubescent girl.
It's a privilege to have a feature article on Cara Sutra
The first article I read when I visited Cara Sutra, was Cara's brave offering about her multiple rapes and the importance of rape fantasy and rapeplay in her sex-life. I'm not going to lie, as a rape survivor myself - I found the article very confronting and it took me days to process what I had just read.

This article is part of a series published on The Huff Post & The Victress by Australian sex-columnist Vanessa de Largie. *** I hope you enjoy The Handjob Hussy. There are no articles about handjobs on the internet. So I thought it was time that a woman wrote one.
Two decades after the Spice Girls burst on to the world-stage with Wannabe, the chart-topping single has now been remade by The Global Goals to advocate for gender equality and to end violence against women. The video, which features artists from around the world, including British girl-group M.O and Bollywood starlet Jacqueline Fernandez claims to emphasise the inequality that women of today face.

We've known for a while now that clean-cut Richie Strahan is Australia's newest Bachelor, and it has just been announced that TV news anchor Georgia Love will be our newest Bachelorette. Once again women around the country will be drip-fed the romance-lie via soft lighting, unauthentic dates and red roses.
Vanessa de Largie's book will leave you torn. It's a diarised account of the domestic violence she suffered from 2001-03. On the one hand you wish this book didn't exist (and that de Largie didn't have to live through such pain, horror and terror) but on the other hand it's good to know that others will have somewhere to turn to if they or someone they know is caught as a victim.

Vanessa's newest article about 'Shame' published on The Huff 25/5
This article is about the many faces of shame. Shh. Don't tell anyone! I'm a freelance sex-columnist. I pay my rent each month by writing articles about my love of sucking dick. Sex-writing has changed my life. It's allowed me to step out of the shadows and express who I really am.
It's 2016 and the world is becoming more politically correct. You can't take a breath without being accused of being sexist, racist, misogynist, ageist, royalist, fascist or chauvinist. The world takes itself seriously and whatever you do, you'll manage to offend someone. I've learnt to live with this reality.
