Let's talk about sex... and intimacy, pleasure, desire & sex positivity
One of the most beautiful books of 2021 has to be Women On Top of The World, a searingly honest, fully illustrated collection of 51 testimonies from around the world revealing the innermost thoughts and feelings of women and non-binary people during sex.
These stories, from adults of all ages, cover playful sex, bored sex, auto-sexuality, crazy sex, tantric sex, sad sex and sex that is experienced as colours and melted toffee. The book is a timely reminder of how important healthy, empowering, informed conversations about sex are.
SO! Here are 21 books we love on sex, relationships, intimacy and desire.
And you can rewatch the launch of Women On Top Of The World with Lucy-Anne Holmes and Ruth Eliot right HERE.
