A classic work on how women think about sex, from the New York Times–bestselling author of My Secret Garden and My Mother/Myself.
Nancy Friday’s groundbreaking books such as Forbidden Flowers offered an unprecedented honest look at the inner fantasy lives of ordinary women. In Women on Top, Friday returns to this topic, collecting detailed sexual fantasies from over 150 contemporary women from diverse backgrounds. Based on intimate personal interviews and letters, this book updates the conversation started in her earlier works on women’s sexual fantasies, detailing how women’s erotic lives have changed—and remained the same.
“This absorbing, titillating and empowering feminist book is also a ribald bedside companion.” —Publishers Weekly
Friday's absorbing update of her 1973 classic My Secret Garden demonstrates the intervening empowerment of women by exploring the changes in their sexual fantasies.
