Sugar in my Bowl: Real Women Write about Real Sex

Edited by Erica Jong (Harper Collins, 2011)

When it comes to sex, what DO women want?

Expertly edited by Erica Jong -- best known for her breakthrough novel Fear of Flying and writings on women’s sexual expression -- this collection of honest essays and stories chronicles every female sexual experience from one-night stands to lovin’ as an octogenarian (that’s anybody aged 80-89). The title, taken from a blues song made famous by Bessie Smith and Nina Simone, tasks its 26 contributors -- among whom are the likes of Eve Ensler, Gail Collins, Fay Weldon and more -- with the exploration of sex and desire from all different positions (in life and in bed). “Too often people aren't comfortable talking about their sex lives but when they can read about the sex lives of others and see that they are experiencing similar things, it's a huge relief," says Joel D. Block, M.D. a psychologist and sex therapist. Whether you’re craving sex, missing sex, having sex or thinking about sex, Sugar in my Bowl will be eye candy on your nightstand, offer inspiration and provide other-chicks-understand camaraderie for your soul.
