The Privileged Sex by Martin van Creveld

This product was recommended by Dr. Giuseppe Aragona from Prescription Doctor

A great book that discussed sexual privilege is The Privileged Sex by Martin van Creveld. It is a controversial opinion about who really is the opprsses sex, and how that has been recorded through history. It can help to give new insights on the view of what is privilege, and how that has changed as time has passed on. While we can see a lot of prejudice in today;s society, it is good to explore where all of this started from, to know what we can do better now.

Seeing Straight by Jean Halley

This product was recommended by Collin Matthews from Cookwared

The book talked about some key concepts in gender and sexuality through eye privilege and power. After an available overview, it examines the privilege inherent in approaching heterosexual and cisgender identities as “normal,” as well as the problems of treating queer gender and sexuality as “abnormal.” Compelling real-life examples illustrate theory and observed research, explaining phenomena that shape not only readers’ own lives, but also their communities, their country, and the field of gender studies itself. The book addresses tough topics like violence, hate, and privilege.

Becoming Cliterate by Laurie Mintz

This product was recommended by Alice Queen from Vanilla is the New Kink

I strongly recommend Becoming Cliterate on sexual privilege and, more specifically, on pleasure gap between cis men and cis women. The book provides a great balance between cultural analysis (yes, cis women have been culturally trained to prioritise their male partner’s orgasm instead of their own) and practical tips on how to close the pleasure gap by becoming ‘cliterate’ and learning all about their most important sexual organ, the clitoris!
