5 Enlightening Feminist Books On Sexuality

Your real sex education class, from a feminist perspective.

We have all been done a great disservice in terms of sexual education. Most people learned from biased and intentionally misleading sources that had nothing to do with teachingthe real truth about sex. To say it’s tragic is to put it mildly.

But, fortunately, feminism exists and it’s here to render obsolete many of our outdated and, admittedly, hard-to-let-go-of beliefs about sexuality. Learning about this might be a bit of a shock at first since you are likely to be baffled by how much wrong you’ve been taught. But believe me, it’s all worth it because the best feminist books on sexuality will open your mind in ways you never thought of.

#5 Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault

We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that―and how you can, too. In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day.

No one―not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors―could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection, so she had to make it up on her own. In Want, a genuine, vulnerable, and accessible account, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally totally delightful steps.

Survivors of assault, if you’ve been thinking to yourself, I thought it was just me, Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you’ve experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery―and the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.
