We're pleased to announce the launch of Jaclyn Friedman's new book, "What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl's Shame-free Guide to Sex and Safety". Jaclyn, a prominent author, activist and a founding member of CounterQuo, is also the co-editor of "Yes Means Yes", a wonderful anthology of essays about sexual violence and envisioning a world without it. Her current book - facts, wisdom, insight, anecdotes and a workbook - is the next necessary step for sexual freedom and liberation. It stemmed from Jaclyn's insistence that "authentic sexual liberation is both compatible with and necessary for combatting the systemic sexualization and violation of women."
Already getting rave reviews, we know this is a book you'll want to read and make sure others read. As Anna Holmes, Washington Post columnist and founder of Jezebel.com says, "“Jaclyn Friedman’s new guide — detailed, intelligent, and fun as hell to read — is a sorely needed addition to my bookshelf. Think of it as the anti-Cosmopolitan: A 21st century primer on fearlessly discovering and owning your sexuality while staying true to yourself without cutesy gimmicks, absurd tips and patronizing assumptions. It’s not an understatement to say that I wish WHAT YOU REALLY REALLY WANT had been around when I was first coming into adulthood. Actually scratch that: It’s as relevant to me now that I’m in my late 30s as it would have been in my late teens. Everyone can benefit from Jaclyn’s personable, progressive perspective on female sexuality and feminism.”
