A colouring book by Jacinta Bunnell that challenges gender stereotypes … perfect for all ages and genders!

Brazen Femme is a manifesto for the unrepentant bitch. In this sharp-edged collection, femme is inherently queer – bent, unfixed, unhinged, and finally unhyphenated. Released from the binary models of sexual orientation, gender, and sex, this collection insists on femme as distinct from and critical of naturalized notions of femininity. Grounded in the present, these writers explore the desires and difficulties in (re)making femininity fit their own queer frames. Edited by Chloe Brushwood Rose and Anna Camilleri.
This is a beautiful collection of thirty-two full-colour photographs of female genitalia, reflecting the diversity of women’s bodies. Edited by Joani Blank, with photographs by Tee A. Corinne, Michael Perry, Jill Posener, and Michael A. Rosen. Makes a great coffee table book!
Von der einst so stolzen deutschen Frauenbewegung ist nicht mehr viel übrig. Die Lebendigkeit und Vielstimmigkeit ist zusammengeschrumpft auf wenige Themen und eine Person: Alice Schwarzer. Für die Lage der Frau ist dies verheerend, mein Gebhardt, denn in Sachen Gleichberechtigung gäbe es noch einiges zu tun. Sie zeigt, welch reiches historisches Erbe es wiederzuentdecken gilt und was sich ändern muss, im die deutsche Frauenbewegung wieder mit Leben zu füllen. (Miriam Gebhardt)
An essential exploration of why and how women’s sexuality works – based on groundbreaking research and brain science – that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy.
The first lesson in this essential, transformative book by Dr. Emily Nagoski is that every woman has her own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that women vary more than men in our anatomy, our sexual response mechanisms, and the way our bodies respond to the sexual world. So we never need to judge ourselves based on others’ experiences. Because women vary, and that’s normal.
Second lesson: sex happens in a context. And all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a woman’s arousal, desire, and orgasm.
Cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines tells us that the most important factor for women in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but how you feel about it. Which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. Once you understand these factors, and how to influence them, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible.
And Emily Nagoski can prove it.
The Feminist Porn Book brings together for the first time writings by feminists in the adult industry and research by feminist porn scholars. This book investigates not only how feminists understand pornography, but also how feminists do porn—that is, direct, act in, produce, and consume one of the world’s most lucrative and growing industries. With original contributions by Tristan Taormino (who is also one of the collection’s editors), Susie Bright, Dylan Ryan, Candida Royalle, Betty Dodson, Nina Hartley, Buck Angel, Lynn Comella, Jane Ward, Ariane Cruz, Kevin Heffernan, and more, The Feminist Porn Book updates the arguments of the porn wars of the 1980s, which sharply divided the women’s movement, and identifies pornography as a form of expression and labor in which women and racial and sexual minorities produce power and pleasure.
2009 marks the tenth anniversary of V-Day, the dynamic grassroots movement to end violence against women and girls that was inspired by the international sensation The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler. This special edition features five never-before-published monologues, a new introduction by the author and a fascinating ten-year history of the stage phenomenon. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women’s deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman’s body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.
An ancient title of respect for women, the word “cunt” long ago veered off this noble path. Inga Muscio traces the road from honor to expletive, giving women the motivation and tools to claim “cunt” as a positive and powerful force in their lives.
In this expanded and updated second edition, Muscio explores, with candidness and humor, such traditional feminist issues as birth control, sexuality, jealousy between women, and prostitution with a fresh attitude for a new generation of women. Sending out a call for every woman to be the Cuntlovin’ Ruler of Her Sexual Universe, Muscio stands convention on its head by embracing all things cunt-related.
This edition is fully revised with updated resources, a new foreword from sexual pioneer Betty Dodson, and a new afterword by the author.
In this empowering, accessible guide, Jaclyn Friedman—co-editor of Yes Means Yes—gives women the tools to decipher the modern world’s confusing, hypersexualized, sometimes dangerous landscape so they can define their own sexual identity. Friedman decries the hypocrisy and mixed messages of our culture (we’re failures if we don’t act sexy, but we’re sluts if we actually pursue sex; we need to be protected from rapists lurking in bushes, but deserve “whatever we get” if we have a drink at a party and wear a skirt), and encourages readers to separate fear from fact, decode the damaging messages all around them, and discover a healthy personal sexuality.
Educational and interactive, What You Really Really Want includes revealing quizzes, creative exercises, and reality-based advice about sex and sexuality today. With Friedman’s informed advice to guide them, readers will build new skills for safely expressing their sexuality with lovers and explore effective ways to talk about tricky issues with family and friends—and learn how to make the world a little safer for everyone else’s sexuality along the way.
