Book News Annotation:

Despite women's liberation, why do so many women still struggle with sexual and body image issues? That is the question Fahs (women and gender studies, Arizona State U.) addresses. Drawing on interviews, she considers the costs of "performing" an authentic self given cultural script. Issues examined include pressures to perform bisexuality, rape and other sexual fantasies, attitudes toward pornography, and sex-positive vs. sex-negative feminism. She also treats the marketing of Viagra-like drugs for women. The book includes methodological appendices. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
