Sex and Single Girls: Women Write on Sexuality (Live Girls) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this frank and lively collection of personal essays, well-known writers and feminists address topics ranging from online sex to abortion, from bisexuality to interracial relationships, creating a complex portrait of women's sexual experiences, activities and preferences.

Review:

?A clear, honest depiction of female sexuality – in all its quirky splendor. While some of the essays are kinky, what?s even more satisfying about this collection is the feeling that the authors are, for the most part, letting it all hang out, presenting women for what we really are: living, breathing human beings, not airbrushed centerfolds or brainless fantasy fodder. Andy Steiner, Utne Reader

Synopsis:

Although they've grown up in a culture saturated with sex, women in their twenties and thirties have no sex book of their own. Sex and Single Girls fills this void with personal accounts of pleasure, fear, desire, risk, survival, heartbreak, and intimacy - everything that comes with exploring one's sexuality. Well-known writers and feminists treat topics ranging from online sex to abortion, from bisexuality to interracial relationships, creating a complex portrait of women's sexual experiences, activities, and preferences. Contributors include Lisa Jervis, publisher of Bitch magazine; Siobhan Brooks, contributor to Whores and Other Feminists; Leora Tanenbaum, author of Slut: Growing Up with a Bad Reputation; Tatiana de la Tierra, editor of the Latina magazine Conmoción; Michelle Tea, author of The Passionate Mistakes and Intricate Corruption of One Girl in America; and many others. Through their wise, humorous, and personally empowering writings, this collection explores women's sexual lives in all their passion and authenticity.
