Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Naomi Wolf, the author of "The Beauty Myth" and "Fire With Fire" explores and celebrates female sexuality, and shows how culture tries to shape and confine women's desire. Drawing on scholarly texts, diaries, real life and fantasy, she demonstrates that female sexuality is wilder, more demanding and more powerful than our cultures dare to accept, and dispels men's severely flawed notions of what women want. "I gulped this wonderful book down in one sitting, like a novel" Erica Jong.

Synopsis:

Explores and celebrates the phenomenon of female sexuality - empirically, imaginatively, anatomically and personally. Following a group of four girls (including her younger self) as they come of age in the 70s, Wolfe shows how our culture tries to shape and confine women's desire.
