About this deal

But, for me, this event will be memorable as the time that I accidentally came across a book that I was perhaps waiting years to read, whether I realised it or not.

I'm a middle aged hetero male who has had a very limited amount of sexual experience, other than straight vanilla. But the weird thing about mainstream sexuality is that it is woefully underdocumented and underexamined.I identified very strongly with Lucy's experiences before she went on this journey, and I expect many women will. What we then have is a very frank, funny, astute and intelligent journey as Holmes explores her own sexuality. Women are often given encouragements of self-love without the warning that the reality of the journey to actually liking ourselves and our bodies isn’t as simple as a marketing scheme drawn up by some soap company would have us believe.

For years and years, I’ve lived my life as a woman who has been told about sex and shown about sex from a man’s perspective. A lot of the author's thoughts, feelings and experiences really struck home to me and it was so reassuring to read them. Tykkäsin siitä, että kymmenien seksiaiheisten kirjojen jälkeen sain tästä uusia ajatuksia kupoliini. It will make you snort with laughter one minute and weep the next; it is frank, eye-opening and inspiring, and will speak to women everywhere. Myöskään muut vähän samaa aihepiiriä sivuavat viime aikoina ilmestyneet kirjat kuten Runkkarin käsikirja tai Himokirja eivät vaan mitenkään tyyliltään viehätä, olen yrittänyt lukea niitä, mutta en päässyt ekaa kymmentä sivua pidemmälle.A cada página, o despertar de uma semelhança, um "afinal não sou a única" proclamado com espanto, um novo olhar ao espelho, uma nova vontade do olhar do outro. Desmistifica tabus, construções sociais, ideias criadas por uma educação por vezes madrasta, por uma indústria pornográfica patriarcal e, até mesmo, pelas páginas dos jornais. Payments made using National Book Tokens are processed by National Book Tokens Ltd, and you can read their Terms and Conditions here. I genuinely think this is a must-read for every woman out there because it is a catalyst for self-love and women empowerment. I’m clearly no expert as I have no children or plan for children, but I hope that Holmes’ honest discussion about post-partum sex and sexuality brings comfort and opens up the conversation among mothers and to-be mothers about what the fuck is actually going on.

A humorous, self-deprecating, and self-effacing but intelligent and inquisitive narrator takes us on a belated journey of sexual self-discovery that is both educational and liberating. I recommend to any woman or person looking for some self love and understanding of how to embark on that journey.There's a casualness about the sexual activity that jars a bit with the earlier exposition of the author as a vulnerable confused sexual being, happy (actually not happy) to have sex, but not an orgasm.
