Product description

Review

Naomi Wolf has tried hard to look at female sexuality as it really is, not as pop culture or political correctness would like it to be... The science of female arousal is complex and woefully neglected, and Wolf has done us all a favour by trying to drag it into the mainstream (Jemima Lewis The Mail on Sunday)

Wolf's tome could not be better timed... at a time when Western women's bodies have never been more highly politicised, the one person who might be able to shine a ray of light... has to be Wolf. Perhaps this history will do for 21st century activism what The Beauty Myth did for 1990s feminists... Wolf is exploring territory we haven't heard about since Germaine Greer in the 1970 (Viv Goskrup Independent on Sunday)

Worth respecting, even celebrating... there is [here] a very intriguing thesis about love... If you are one of those School of Cosmo feminists who has been arguing for decades that women should be more like men sexually... then Wolf's take is genuinely revolutionary (Sarah Vine The Times)

Part memoir, part cultural history and part scientific journey around women's sexuality, the best elements of which illuminate how little women generally know about their own anatomy... (Emma Brockes Guardian)

Book Description

Naomi Wolf is back, with a book that is as exciting, dramatic and controversial as The Beauty Myth
