The Time of Our Lives: Women Write on Sex After 40

cover image

“In this living room of the mind, women from forty to seventy and a couple older, come together to drop their masks and talk about their adventures and their disappointments in bed. There are boastful pieces and erotic pieces, but mostly you will hear the voices of women talking about the most personal of all matters in a conversation you may want to join.”
-Marge Piercy

You have to be daring to read this book. Aside from its fun-and-joy producing capacity and its honest telling of good stories, The Time of Our Lives is, for women, a virtual encyclopedia of strategies for surviving—even prevailing—in a misogynist culture. Be aware that your life may alter drastically with this healthy dose of self-love, hope, and courage. (If you are a man, the danger is only that you will stand in awe of the truths that our culture has systematically hidden from you.)”  
-Sally Miller Gearhart
