Feministing Jamz: Junglepussy’s Satisfaction Guaranteed

our mudflap girl, jammin on her headphones

If you’re not hip to Junglepussy yet, the time to get up to speed is right now. Unapologetically sexual, proudly black and West Indian, and with unmatched swag, Junglepussy has been releasing tracks here and there and making cameos in the videos of Feministing Jamz faves Dai Burger and Le1f. Now, she’s finally here with a debut album.

Satisfaction Guaranteed came out Tuesday, and y’all: it is off the hook. A few of these tracks have been released over the past year and have already been on my personal rotation (ahem, Picky Bitch Checklist), but this album brings it with great new tracks as well, and in addition to shouting out women who’ve been important to her (Brandy, Foxy, Kim, Patra, Erykah), Junglepussy’s throwing us gems throughout. “It’s a full time job fucking loving yourself.” “Fuck a petition, listen, let the revolution begin.” “What’s a girl to do when the world is against you? Throw it in they face, let ‘em know that you meant to.”

These jams are what summer dance parties are made of. Get into it.

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and artist.
