    Part reading secrets, part educational, part remembering everybody’s got something they’re dealing with, and part XXX rated illustrations

    Personas de edades, grupos sociales y creencias muy diferentes se sinceran sobre su vida sexual; los relatos engloban anécdotas divertidas sobre masturbación, fantasías y porno pero también ETS o agresiones sexuales. Debería ser lectura obligada, para todos y en todas partes: la gente se entendería, aceptaría y respetaría mejor. No exagero, hasta tal punto las dos autoras han acertado la selección de historias y las han editado con sensibilidad e inteligencia.

    This is a 2.5 ⭐️ good book to read. This is my book for 2021 for #9 on my 2021 Reading Challenge : Read a book of short stories. This book made me feel like I was sitting at a table with friends and strangers and we were all sharing stories on important but often taboo topics.

    I expected this to be an educational book based on the title, but it's a collection of essays and anonymous confessions. It was very interesting to read! It took me a lot longer to read than I thought. I loved the comic illustrations, and that a list of all the artists was included at the end.

    It has all these confessions of people experiencing things about sexuality, sex, intimacy - it's like reading a forum. It has all these confessions of people experiencing things about sexuality, sex, intimacy - it's like reading a forum.

    Beautiful illustrations, essays and snippets of interviews from a variety of voices and experiences, and honest descriptions of sex, body acceptance, and more. Two critiques: 1) the LGBTQ section was lacking and not as diverse or joyful as it could have been, and 2) I was deeply disturbed by one anonymous story that said their first sexual experience/relationship was with their uncle when they were 13, and that it was “good” ... deeply concerning. Hoping the authors respond to that.

    3.5 stars. Every Body truly lives up to its name: in terms of topics covered, it's one of the most comprehensive books about sex that I've ever read. It takes a truly wholistic view of all that's related the topic, from the expected (e.g. sex toys, assault, etc) to the less commonly associated (e.g. abortion, aging). If it's related to sex, there's a story in here. That storytelling is where both the book's strength and its weakness lies. First, the strength: the book provides the massive dose of 3.5 stars.

If it's related to sex, there's a story in here. That storytelling is where both the book's strength and its weakness lies. First, the strength: the book provides the massive dose of empathy and shared reality you feel as you read the book. It's a powerful reminder that, when it comes to sex, there's no "normal" only more or less common. That, if you've thought it or done it, someone else out there has too. That you are NOT alone. The stories also ensure you go on a full emotional journey. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be shocked, disgusted, relieved, and everything around and in-between. The storytelling is also the downside to this book. These are (presumably) uncensored accounts of real people's sexual experiences. With that comes a few things. First, the need for ALL the content warnings, and not always or necessarily in the sections you'd expect. Second, the reminder that this is NOT an educational book. Just because it's shared doesn't mean it's a healthy, safe, or satisfying idea. I do wish the authors had reminded us of that throughout. Third, a lack of values structure that leaves the reader making their own values judgments. These stories will challenge you and while I understand the editorial decision to NOT provide commentary, I do feel like some could have used a little bit more, even in the form of resources recommendations which they did once or twice but not consistently and not, in my opinion, on some stories (e.g. Dick) that could have really, REALLY used one. The world needs more honest stories about sex. Rothman and Feinberg compiled them and left few, if any stones unturned. This book will challenge you in one moment and then give you a warm hug in the next. Its certainly a book I'll recommend to clients and friends, with a heavy heads up AND the reminder that they can skip sections as needed.

Nếu công ty của bạn chịu trách nhiệm tạo ra “điều lớn lao tiếp theo”, thì bạn cần đảm bảo rằng bạn bùng nổ trên thị trường với tất cả những tia lửa và sự chú ý xứng đáng từ một cuộc cách mạng như vậy. Trong hướng dẫn này, chúng tôi sẽ giải thích cách khởi chạy thương hiệu thành công. Thiết kế bộ nhận diện văn phòng gồm những gì https://thienthoi.com.vn/bo-nhan-dien... Một buổi ra mắt thương hiệu mới, cho dù bạn đang tung ra một thương hiệu lần đầu tiên hay thể hiện bản tuyên ngôn mới của mình, đều là một cơ hội tiếp thị rất lớn. Các tổ chức tiết kiệm nhất biết cách tận dụng cơ hội này như một cách nâng cao nhận thức về thương hiệu và cách ra mắt thương hiệu. Tuy nhiên, nhiều công ty vẫn không nhận ra giá trị và tầm quan trọng của việc ra mắt chi nhánh. Hãy nghĩ theo cách này: ra mắt thương hiệu là cơ hội để bạn khiến khách hàng hào hứng với công ty và sản phẩm của bạn. Đó là sự khác biệt giữa việc bước vào thị trường của những người tiêu dùng thờ ơ, không quan tâm và bước ra sân khấu trước đám đông người hâm mộ cuồng nhiệt. Từ kinh nghiệm, chúng tôi nhận thấy rằng các nhà tiếp thị thường để kế hoạch ra mắt của họ đến phút cuối cùng, có nghĩa là các sự kiện lớn diễn ra gấp rút và thiếu cân nhắc. Điều này thường có nghĩa là các thương hiệu mới ra đời bắt đầu cuộc sống của họ bằng một tiếng rên rỉ, khi chúng có thể có tác động mạnh mẽ. Nói cách khác - nó hơi phản cao trào. Mục đích của hướng dẫn "Cách giới thiệu thương hiệu" này là cho bạn thấy rằng thương hiệu của bạn là một tin tức quan trọng. Cho dù nó là mới hay đã tái sinh, nó xứng đáng tạo ra tác động và việc ra mắt của bạn cho phép bạn tạo ra sự va chạm quan trọng nhất có thể gây chấn động cho khán giả mục tiêu của bạn. Chiến lược ra mắt thương hiệu là cơ hội để bạn khiến mọi người hào hứng, tạo tiếng vang và khiến mọi người (khách hàng, các bên liên quan, báo chí thương mại và nhà báo) đứng lên và chú ý.

    So, full disclosure: because this book is a collection of other people's experiences, not every story is going to be compatible with every reader. That's totally fine and to be expected. I still recommend you check it out if you're interested, because I promise you whatever you think is 'weird' about your sex life/sexuality/body is normalized in here. I was mostly interested in reading this book because of my experiences with vaginismus. I wasn't 100% sure it would be covered, but it was!

I still recommend you check it out if you're interested, because I promise you whatever you think is 'weird' about your sex life/sexuality/body is normalized in here. I was mostly interested in reading this book because of my experiences with vaginismus. I wasn't 100% sure it would be covered, but it was! In fact, it was even mentioned within the first few pages. Around 55% of the way through the book, I decided that I wasn't going to read any of the stories that triggered me or made me uncomfortable, which is a strategy I'd recommend to any other readers. Yes, you should go into this book curious about the perspectives of others, but don't push yourself too hard, especially if you have past trauma. Overall I found this book super refreshing and -- yes, as the cover says -- honest.

    Such a beautiful book! Largely anonymous, covering sex ed, religion and sex, sex clubs, non-consensual sex, fetishes, and Covid and sex.... With some of the topics or stories one really gets to travel places, some are shocking. The artwork from various contemporary artists is phenomenal. This would make a great wedding/pre-wedding present! The writings range from 50-1000 words- the majority are on the shorter side.

This project shows the power of personal stories to educate, provide awareness and to open up dialogues. This would be excellent for a sex, gender, and women's studies class, and surely the students would read, read, read.

    Cool illustrations & talk about the human (sexual) condition, I'm in. Enjoyable, varied, wild. I sort of wished there had been longer dives into people's stories, but I also enjoyed the person on the street just dropping a story aspect of this book.

    Interesting book idea to have so many stories from strangers. Loved the super short stories (both the funny and deep ones). Could have been a lot shorter and less repetitive (many of the stories were redundant), I definitely skipped chapters.

    A cool idea, but by no means "radically diverse" as proclaimed. Variety in art and voices though! I was expecting more of an educational tool, but I do appreciate the approachability to the array of topics it covers. A cool idea, but by no means "radically diverse" as proclaimed.

    I loved reading the wide variety of fun, varied, painful, sad, and beautiful experiences of people who contributed their stores/experiences around sex. It creates a good space to reflect and affirm whatever I have experienced around sex and imagine what else there is to explore.
