For the first quarter, I felt like I was paddling upstream against the oblique language and tone shifts. The balance of the academic, the anecdotal, and the poetic was off in the first few essays, but by the midpoint with the illuminating essay on stalking and voyeurism the writing improved or I finally clicked into its groove due to the more interesting subject matter. The remaining essays about consent and addiction were just as strong and kept me eager to return to the book.

Since the essays are relatively independent, if you are having trouble getting into the book also, try skipping ahead to the good stuff. ( )

A very well written and thoughtful set of essays about a pro domme, who was an early bloomer and took decades to recover from being sexually mistreated by males and emotionally mistreated by females. Then she became a sex worker (dominatrix), which helped her gain control over who was in charge, but still this failed to really address her deep psychological issues, which she managed to finally conquer with unwavering love and compassion from her female companion/wife. This book helped me gain a better understanding about what it means to be a woman in a world where they have many roles and responsibilities, some of which are more societal expectations than necessary life constraints.

I received an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

This book is a series of personal essays about the author's relationship to her body, and her body's relationship to the world around her. I am probably not putting that right, but it was the most pithy way I could think to say it. I had to regroup after I started reading, because I was expecting something lighter. The essays are academically rigorous and often relate to the literature and philosophy of feminism, which I know way too little about. But the experience of being an American girl and then an American woman, of rejecting one's own body even though it's wrong and self-defeating, of suppressing one's own feelings and needs to prevent embarrassing a man with rejection, of feeling afraid of sexual assault... all of that is in this book, and in me too. It took me to some dark places, but the writing is beautiful, and I am better for having read it. There are some gorgeous illustrations on the chapter title pages, too. I am going to seek out more work by the author. ( )

Destruction is thus always restoration -- that is, the destruction of a set of categories that introduce artificial divisions into an otherwise unifed ontology. - Judith Butler, Gender Trouble
To say: no person, trying to take responsibility for her or his identity, should have to be so alone. There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep, and still be counted as warriors. (I make up this strange, angry packet for you, threaded with love.) I think you thought there was no such place for you, and perhaps there was none then, and perhaps there is none now; but we will have to make it, we who want an end to suffering, who want to change the laws of history, if we are not to give ourselves away. - Adrienne Rich, "Sources"
