Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power

(1 customer review)

$17.00

In this groundbreaking new look at rape edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and Full Frontal Feminism author Jessica Valenti, the way we view rape in our culture is finally dismantled and replaced with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure.

Feminist, political, and activist writers alike will present their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model—an approach that while necessary for where we were in 1974, needs an overhaul today.

Yes Means Yes will bring to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape.

Description

Yes Means Yes aims to have radical and far-reaching effects. Teaching men to treat women as collaborators and not conquests, encouraging men and women that women can enjoy sex instead of being shamed for it, as well as ultimately, that our children can inherit a world where rape is rare and swiftly punished.

With commentary on public sex education, pornography, mass media, Yes Means Yes is a powerful and revolutionary anthology.

    I loveexperience of ad reading this anthology. I feel like this should be required reading for anyone who is sexually active with females in our current society. As a heterosexual, cis, male, I found the insight into the experience of all types, oriented, and practicing females to be both enlightening and informative. It truly gives a path to finding a way to support and bring into being a new way of approaching sexuality that prioritizes pleasure, consent and communication.
