What do women really think about when they’re having sex?
Women on Top of the World is a collection of fifty testimonies by fifty women from around the planet and from all walks of life. Searingly honest, they reveal their innermost thoughts and feelings during sex to writer Lucy-Anne Holmes. Jenny, 45, from Scotland: she climaxes by fantasising about being a queen surrounded by servants. Maria Libre, 26, from the Philippines: she received no sex education, and learned about sex through watching porn. Alessandra, 28, from Italy: she gets turned on by imagining that her girlfriend is pregnant. Anita, 54, from India: she has rediscovered the pleasures of sex since she left her abusive husband. Cal, 23, from England: a non-binary person, their favourite strap-on has a purple and glittery galaxy swirl on it. Emily, 27, from Australia: she and her boyfriend like to dress up as characters from Star Wars or James Bond. Olga, 29, from Moscow: until five years ago, she thought she had a medical condition which prevented her from orgasming. This book will contribute to the changing way women are now talking about their sexuality. From Three Women to Fleabag, there’s an obvious thirst for narratives for women by women about their journeys of self-discovery. Fully illustrated by a range of hugely talented artists, these true stories are funny and sad, shocking and tender.
