New Erotica for Feminists: Satirical Fantasies of Love, Lust, and Equal Pay Reviews

  • Chloe Metzger

    Well, things are about to get steamy in here!  New Erotica for Feminists takes our wildest fantasies from equal pay to a reimagining of some of our favourite films in a feminist way and makes them a reality. An excellent mix of humour and satire this is going to get you talking, one way or another. 

    Ok, ok, this isn't exactly the next 50 Shades, but it should be a bestseller. This is a collection that takes the worn out tropes of erotica and porn and turns them on their heads. Born from a convers

    Well, things are about to get steamy in here!  New Erotica for Feminists takes our wildest fantasies from equal pay to a reimagining of some of our favourite films in a feminist way and makes them a reality. An excellent mix of humour and satire this is going to get you talking, one way or another. 

    Ok, ok, this isn't exactly the next 50 Shades, but it should be a bestseller. This is a collection that takes the worn out tropes of erotica and porn and turns them on their heads. Born from a conversation between friends joking about a perfect feminist world - and so New Erotica was born. 

    'Imagine a world where erotica was written by feminists: Their daydreams include equal pay, a gender-balanced Congress, and Tom Hardy arriving at their doorstep to deliver a fresh case of LaCroix every week.'

    I read this in a flash and was laughing out loud the whole way through. So much so, I got a few odd looks from my partner and so I had to explain what I was reading - I'm pretty sure it confused him even more. That's the perfect thing about the collection, it doesn't try and take itself seriously, it doesn't attack anyone or anything. This makes a point because it makes you laugh at the same time. It doesn't take away from the issues - but makes them more relatable. 

    This doesn't take away for what we're fighting for, instead, it injects a little fun and silliness. I can imagine if you've had a day of patriarchy fuelled BS this is the perfect book to come home too. Is it a literary masterpiece that will change the tides of modern feminism? Probably not but I think it will give the lift that we need in the current climate. 

    Of course, I gave this 5 stars! I was completely hooked and even though as of writing, I have just finished - I want to pick it up and read all over again. This is going to make an excellent Christmas present after I've bought my own copy of course! 

    A huge thank you to the authors, publishers and Netgalley for this review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    The best bedtime reading...!

  • Michael Schmidt

    This book is not just for women - which is what I thought at first! It's seriously thought-provoking while being very, very funny, which isn't a mix I read a lot of. I loved the Historical and Literary sections, especially Adam and Eve's REAL Bible story and a missing "My Day" column by Eleanor Roosevelt that made me laugh out loud. I love the cover too - very arresting play on a neon sign! I'm buying this for gifts for male and female friends alike this year, anyone who I think would "get it."

    Exactly the humor I was hoping for! 😂🙌🏻💜

    This books was great. A super short, zippy read that was equal parts hilarious and heart-breaking. Why heart-breaking? Because WHY THE HELL DON’T WE HAVE ANY OF THIS IN 2018???

    It’ll take you an hour, maybe two, to read NEW EROTICA FOR FEMINISTS, and it’ll make you laugh. For sure. But once you get a little bit of distance from it, once you can step away from the book for a moment and really let it all seep in, you’ll go, WHAT THE HELL.

    It’ll take you an hour, maybe two, to read NEW EROTICA FOR FEMINISTS, and it’ll make you laugh. For sure. But once you get a little bit of distance from it, once you can step away from the book for a moment and really let it all seep in, you’ll go, WHAT THE HELL. Because what these ladies are talking about, what they’re poking fun at and drawing attention to, are really simple things. Like being listened to, left alone, and trusted. About not having our bodies up for public discussion or being considered a bitch for deigning to have an opinion about something. For not wanting to get interrupted or mansplained to. It’s really very simple.

    But apparently it’s not because we needed this book. And I’m sure we’ll need more books like it and I hope more books keep coming out that are like it until finally, one day, shit finally sits right and it’s not needed anymore. So until then laugh. Laugh until you cry. And then drink whine and continue shredding the patriarchy piece by piece. And do it wearing a great shade of lipstick. Or not. It’s your choice, after all.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I was very kindly given an e-arc of this book through Netgalley and Hodder & Stoughton.

    A hilarious look at the erotica genre and how it can be transformed to be more feminist friendly, and overall female-friendly. I for one cannot wait to see the fantastical retelling of Adam and Eve not trusting a 'fucking talking snake' and doing experiments on the apples in the garden of Eden.

    A hilarious look at the erotica genre and how it can be transformed to be more feminist friendly, and overall female-friendly. I for one cannot wait to see the fantastical retelling of Adam and Eve not trusting a 'fucking talking snake' and doing experiments on the apples in the garden of Eden. This book encapsulates erotica from all angles- the classic porn plumber/pizza man/firefighter/professor, pop culture icons like Ed Sheeran (and his tribute to Agatha Christie), Tom Hardy's sparkling water delivery and Hugh Grant's spaghetti skills, to classical literature from Romeo & Juliet to The Crucible. My only complaint is that it's way too short- I would love to read more from these amazing women. Laugh out loud funny, refreshingly honest and just a little ridiculous, it's a read that'll give you a moments pause from the shit storm of reality.

    'New Erotica for Feminists: Get What You Deserve, Again and Again and Again' is published on November 15th, 2018.

    A perfectly timely collection of hilarious anecdotes that hit that niggle you've got buried inside you, whether it's strangers commenting on your parenting, men undermining your button pushing ability in a lift, or how you wish cat callers would focus on the book tucked under your arm instead. A very short read - it only took me an hour or two at most to read - but so very uplifting in a time where everything on the news and your social media news feeds is doom and gloom, necessary #metoo moveme

    A perfectly timely collection of hilarious anecdotes that hit that niggle you've got buried inside you, whether it's strangers commenting on your parenting, men undermining your button pushing ability in a lift, or how you wish cat callers would focus on the book tucked under your arm instead. A very short read - it only took me an hour or two at most to read - but so very uplifting in a time where everything on the news and your social media news feeds is doom and gloom, necessary #metoo movements, and a never ending supply of stories from women around the world that make you want to cry and yell and make some change. Reading this won't change the world, but it will improve your mood and make you feel seen, make you feel connected to other women around the world, so that when you get to the back of the book with a list of resources and what you can do to make a change, you feel recharged and ready to go!

    Absolutely HILARIOUS! Loved so many of the stories in this book!

  • Tara

    Very funny, but there is a distinct lack of intersectional content.
