Overview

In this groundbreaking new look at rape edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and Full Frontal Feminism and He’s A Stud, She’s A Slut author Jessica Valenti, the way we view rape in our culture is finally dismantled and replaced with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure. Feminist, political, and activist writers alike will present their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model—an approach that while necessary for where we were in 1974, needs an overhaul today.

Yes Means Yes will bring to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape. Yes Means Yes aims to have radical and far-reaching effects: from teaching men to treat women as collaborators and not conquests, encouraging men and women that women can enjoy sex instead of being shamed for it, and ultimately, that our children can inherit a world where rape is rare and swiftly punished. With commentary on public sex education, pornography, mass media, Yes Means Yes is a powerful and revolutionary anthology.

"Yes Mean Yes" is the most interesting coverage of the topics of female sexuality and the rape culture that I have ever read. In this collection of essays, different viewpoints as well as summaries of research come together to paint an honest picture of the society we live in and how it affects each of us individually as well as the female collective. I encourage every parent, teacher and friend to share this with the females of their lives.

The author, Jerald J. Howard, added me on Facebook and sent me some poems. I continued the read the poems and excerpts he posted and decided to order the book... I started reading the first night and couldn't get myself to stop reading! It had comedy, shocking moments, a little sadness, and A LOT of sex! lol You can really relate to some characters and events in the story. Especially if you are a college student. Also, you can communicate with him on the site, unlike many other authors now. I just bought his previously published books and I will definitely continue to buy his books! Enjoy :)
