By Emily Witt
A humorous, clean, and relocating antidote to traditional attitudes approximately intercourse and the one woman
Emily Witt is unmarried and in her thirties. Up until eventually many years in the past, she nonetheless expected her sexual adventure "eventually attaining a terminus, like a monorail gliding to a cease at Epcot Center." Like many folks, she imagined herself disembarking, discovering herself face-to-face with one other individual, "and there we might stay in our everlasting station in existence: the future."
But, as we know, issues are extra complex than that. Love is uncommon and regularly unreciprocated. Sexual acquisitiveness is dicy and will be hurtful. And generalizing approximately what girls wish or don't desire or should still wish or should still do turns out to guide nowhere. do not our temperaments, our hang-ups, and our histories outline our lives up to our gender?
In Future Sex, Witt explores net courting, net pornography, polyamory, and different avant-garde sexual subcultures as websites of risk. She observes her encounters with those scenes with a wry humorousness, shooting them in all their strangeness, ridiculousness, and sweetness. the result's an open-minded, sincere account of the modern pursuit of connection and delight, and an inspiring new version of woman sexuality--open, forgiving, and unafraid.
