Sugar in my bowl : real women write about real sex by Erica Jong( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it comes to sex, what do women want' In this eye-opening and courageous collection, Erica Jong reveals that every woman has her own answer. </ Susan Cheever talks about the "excruciating hazards of casual sex," while Gail Collins recounts her Catholic upbringing in Cincinnati and the nuns who passionately forbade her from having "carnal relations." In "Everything Must Go," Jennifer Weiner explores how, in love, the body can play just as big a role as the heart. The octogenarians in Karen Abbott's sharp-eyed piece possess a passion that could give Betty White a run for her money. Molly Jong-Fast reflects on her unconventional upbringing and why a whole generation of young women have rejected "free love" in favor of Bugaboo strollers and Mommy-and-me yoga. </ Sex, it turns out, can be as fleeting, heavy, mundane, and intense as the rest of life. Indeed, Jong states in her powerful introduction "the truth is'<sex</ is life."</
