Dear John I Love Jane

Author: Candace Walsh
Publisher: Seal Press
ISBN: 9781580053846
Release Date: 2010-10-19
Genre: Family & Relationships

The new buzzword in female sexuality is “sexual fluidity”—the idea that for many women, sexual identity can shift over time, often in the direction of same-sex relationships. Examples abound in popular culture, from actress Cynthia Nixon, who left her male partner of 15 years to be with a woman, to writer and comedienne Carol Leifer, who divorced her husband for the same reason. In a culture increasingly open to accepting this fluidity, Dear John, I Love Jane is a timely, fiercely candid exploration of female sexuality and personal choice. The book is comprised of essays written by a broad spectrum of women, including a number of well-known writers and personalities. Their stories are sometimes funny, sometimes painful—but always achingly honest—accounts of leaving a man for a woman, and the consequences of making such a choice. Arousing, inspiring, bawdy, bold, and heartfelt, Dear John, I Love Jane is an engrossing reflection of a new era of female sexuality.

De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID

Women Loving Women

Author: Jamye Waxman
Publisher: Quiver
ISBN: 9781616735678
Release Date: 2007-04-01
Genre: Self-Help

Women Loving Women explores the phenomenon of the contemporary "bi-sexual" or "lesbian" experience for the heterosexual woman. However, while women loving women is indeed an emerging trend, it is also an age-old obsession that this book also addresses and places in a historical perspective. The book investigates the reasons modern women are more open to same-sex encounters, how these experiences can connect people and help them grow, and how regardless of one's sexual orientation, there is much to learn here about the nature of love, sex, and physical attraction and its unconscious determinants. In addition, Women Loving Women also responds to how these same-sex encounters are less apt to create conflict in their heterosexual relationships, and actually might spice things up with their male partner (many men fantasize about same-sex women relationships), break the ice with a best friend, or simply add a new dimension to their sexual history. Women Loving Women features sophisticated photographs that will capture the warm and enlightening approach of exploring erotic possibilities with other women, even when you don't identify yourself as a bisexual or lesbian. Testimonials from heterosexual women who have experienced same-sex romantic encounters will be featured throughout. Sidebars will also feature quotations from women-who-have-loved-women throughout history, such as Virginia Woolf, Simone de Beauvoir, Anais Nin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, amongst others. The photographs, shot on location in New Hampshire, tell a story of three beautiful women who leave their boyfriends/husbands behind for a "girls weekend"-and discover a new dimension to their friendship
