Summary
"Women love sex. So why do we have such a difficult time accepting them as sexual creatures? For a society that loves to project sex onto women, we're not so keen on their free sexual expression. Doing It brings together some incredible female writers to reflect on why that might be, how they feel about sex, and why they love it. Women don't get to talk about this, or hear it, enough. Edited by renowned feminist Karen Pickering, Doing It celebrates women taking control of their sexual lives, with some brilliant writing on intimacy, physicality, gender and power. These stories encourage honest discussions about sex and remind us of simple truths: women's bodies are their own, everybody's idea of good sex is different, and loving sex is nothing to be ashamed of. Featuring some of Australia's most engaging voices, and some international stars, this exceptional collection combines the serious, the hilarious, the satirical, the personal, the political, and the downright sexy. Contributors include: Hanne Blank, Tilly Lawless, Van Badham, Anne-Frances Watson, Jenna Price, Jessamy Gleeson, Jane Gilmore, Amy Middleton, Rosanna Beatrice, Simona Castricum, Michelle Law, Deirdre Fidge, Maria Lewis, Brigitte Lewis."
