Description

Female sexual fantasy began in 1973 with Nancy Friday's multi-million-selling collection of real women's fantasies, My Secret Garden. Until that book was published, female sexual fantasy did not exist; not even within the pages of Cosmopolitan, their opinion at the time being: 'Women do not have sexual fantasies, period. Men do.' Friday's book changed all that. Now, exactly forty years on from Friday's masterpiece, leading sex writer Emily Dubberley is curating a brand new female fantasy classic for the modern era. It's a post-Fifty Shades, post-Sex and the City world and in Garden of Desires, hundreds of real women share details of their most private thoughts. This is an exploration of the meaning of desire. Dare to read, dare to dream, and dare to discover the new truths of female sexuality. The stories are red hot and completely original. And they're going to make your heart beat faster - and make headlines nationwide.

Reviews

"A worthy successor to Nancy Friday's groundbreaking work." -- Rob Page, Founder Of The Lovers' Guide "Nancy Friday's My Secret Garden was a hugely influential book in my life, landing in the bookshops at a time when I was just beginning to learn about my own sexuality. It's fantastic to see it brought up to date in the highly capable hands of accomplished sex writer Emily Dubberley. A must read for anyone who has ever wondered what really goes on in a woman's head!" -- Suzanne Portnoy, Erotic Memoirist And Bestselling Author Of The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker. "What's so wonderful about the Garden of Desires is the array of female voices. By taking into account all genders and sexual orientations, it perfectly demonstrates just how vast and varied female fantasies are. This is what makes the Garden of Desires feels like it has fully bloomed." -- Rose Crompton
