New Erotica for Feminists: Satirical Fantasies of Love, Lust, and Equal Pay
By Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor, Carrie Wittmer
Imagine a world where erotica was written by feminists: Their daydreams include equal pay, a gender-balanced Congress, and Tom Hardy arriving at their doorstep to deliver a fresh case of LaCroix every week.
Both light-hearted and empowering, New Erotica for Feminists is a sly, satirical take on all the things that turn feminists on. From a retelling of Adam and Eve to tales of respectful Tinder dates, New Erotica for Feminists answers the question of “What do women really want?” with stories of power, equality, and an immortal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Your boss gives you a pay rise, the hotshot producer recognizes your talents, the pizza delivery guy hopes you've got a box-set to watch with your extra-large pizza. Prepared to be satisfied…at last.
Sometimes a plumber is just a plumber. Get what you really want this year with dozens of literary quickies to tantalize and titillate even the most world-weary feminist.
Read the original article on McSweeney's that inspired the book.
