I’m Starting Book Collections

Feminist Friday Review: Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski

(I’ve decided to transform the “Is This Feminist?” series into a series of Feminist Friday Reviews. I think framing the question the old way was limiting the books I could meaningfully review. Welcome to the new version!) I’ve read a lot of books on sexuality, but Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform…… Continue reading Feminist Friday Review: Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski

Review: “Ooku: The Inner Chambers” Vol. 1-2 by Fumi Yoshinaga
