Description


Sex Talk shows how opening up discussions on bodies, sexuality and pleasure can lead to much, much better sex and self-esteem, by the eminent French feminist pornographer Olympe de Gê and feminist writer Stéphanie Estournet. 

Sex Talk has a clear mission – breaking the taboo of taboos – by opening up the discussion of sex and desire in a clear, engaging and motivational way. The book takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery through nine chapters, discussing everything from self-stimulation, exploring sexual orientation, communicating wants and desires with a partner, staying safe online when sexting, exploring erotica and porn and creating private content – but at the core is the pervading importance of owning your sexual self.

A manifesto for sex positivity, Sex Talk is a book that every womxn should read; it’s straight talking, accessible, and most importantly, focuses on what we should be asking ourselves, as opposed to reinforcing the damaging, age-old stereotypes and constructs surrounding sex that detract from personal pleasure.
