Truth, Pleasure, and an Unfinished Revolution
From Teen Vogue sex and love columnist Nona Willis Aronowitz, a blend of memoir, social history, and cultural criticism that explores the new "problem that has no name" when it comes to female desire, seeking answers from the author's life and family history as well as from revolutionaries of the past.
For readers of Rebecca Traister and Rebecca Solnit, Bad Sex is a brave, bold, and vulnerable exploration of the enduring barriers of sexual freedom, which lays bare the triumphs and flaws of contemporary feminism and also helps shine a light on universal questions of desire.
