Naomi Wolf In this provocative and highly personal new book, Naomi Wolf speaks to women with searing honesty about a subject that has long been taboo: our sexual coming of age. Today, teenage girls' sexuality is everywhere put on display. Promiscuities follows a group of adolescent girls as they gradually become aware of themselves as sexual beings and discover what our culture tells them being female means. Drawing on her own experiences as well those of her contemporaries, Naomi Wolf reveals the secrets of our coming of age: the sexual games, forbidden crushes, losses of virginity, and rites of initiation.

Naomi Wolf was born in 1962 in San Francisco, where she grew up. She was catapulted to success in 1990 with the publication of her first book, The Beauty Myth, which became an international bestseller, published in fourteen countries. This was followed by another best-selling book, Fire with Fire, about women's relationship to power. She writes on women's issues and lectures all over the world.

Naomi Wolf’s UK publisher has promised to make corrections to the feminist author’s latest book after a British writer successfully challenged its accuracy about gay men executed in Victorian England. The American author claimed two males were sentenced to death at the Old Bailey in the mid 1850’s for sodomy, despite the last recorded hanging for gay sex in the UK being 1835. But in a humiliating interview on Radio 3, Matthew Sweet told her she had failed to establish what the legal term death recorded on court documents really means.

Naomi Wolf strikes home here with a book that will resonate with a lot of people, especially those born between .

Naomi Wolf strikes home here with a book that will resonate with a lot of people, especially those born between 1960 and 1970 and raised on one of the coasts. Unlike her past works, Promiscuities is a very personal story; she has a lot to say about her own experiences and those of the girls and women she grew up with. The earlier parts of the book are stronger than the finish, but it's worth getting to the end anyway.


Hidden Winter
The book is partly a memoir about growing up in San Francisco in the early 1970,s and partly a set of ideas about sexual liberation.
Wolf and her friends had no restrictions set by adults and yet imposed a rigid set of rules on each other. They respected parents who were more traditional. She suggests that women became victims of sexual permissiveness. The double standard persisted, she thinks, in ways that made life more difficult for girls.
The story is told so well that it is worth reading for its own sake as entertainment. Wolf is a superb writer but not in the first rank as a social theorist. She is a master of the ability to set a scene with a single memorable phrase, such as describing a shabby building with walls of "stucco the color of dirty erasers." Her theories may be valid but the evidence that she adduces to support them is very subjective. Primarily she relies upon her own intuition and the reports of a small group of friends she grew up with. She does quote from the literature but does so uncritically. Some of the anthropologists' reports she cites about coming of age rituals and so forth are of dubious authenticity. There are almost no reports of statistics or surveys

Great perspectives on female sexual coming of age. Sometimes confusing with multiple people sharing their experiences and perspectives.
Dainris
she writes honestly about womens issues.

I bought this book because of the author's work "Vagina"; and felt that it was the best of her works I've read to date. This is an intensely personal work relating the experiences of the author and her friends, with her conclusions based upon those experiences. While other women will have made a different journey through childhood, adolescence and early womanhood, the author's experiences and insights will still be of value in reflecting upon what it means to be female in our society.

The cover is not sticking to the original cover; it seems not original. I hoped if I found it with Kindle though
Cordann
Fast trade and great quality
Naomi Woolf famous for previous feminine texts. This examines how females have had to re frame themselves in the light of a patriachial and consumerist economy.
Zadora
It was okay but not outstanding.
Great book. Delivered on time.
