Release Date and Last Update
2019 (no update as of the review date)
We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies and whether we're doing it 'right'.
Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.

To Access the Tool
You can buy the book in bookstores at a cost of $35.99.
This book has not been written by a sexologist or by a therapist, but by a person who wanted to share her knowledge and experience about sexuality. When she gives some tricks or advice, it is important to remember that. The facts that she presents are not supported by sources, so it is impossible to verify them.
Also, she knowingly uses the term “vagina” to talk about the vulva. She sometimes uses an inclusive vocabulary in terms of gender identity (e.g. “people born with vaginas”), but other times, cisnormativity takes over. It naturally comes with some gender stereotypes.
Note too that the representations of the elderly people often have a negative connotation and tend to forget that they too have a sex life. This book is clearly intended for a younger public.
