Reviews

An insightful and expository collection at the junction of sexuality and motherhood. The collection explores the structural landscape, socio-cultural contexts, taboos, and sites of agency framing this point of convergence. Crucially, we are shown that it is not necessarily sexuality itself that often positions sexual mothers in contradiction to gendered conventions of motherhood, but the unapologetic application of agency in the expression of that sexuality. This is an important and informative departure from conventional (even seemingly supportive) representations of the sexual expression of mothers, and of great use in providing a nuanced understanding of mothers and sexuality in a contemporary context still dominated by the caricatures of the porn industry, and the commodifying oversimplifications of late capitalism. -- J. Maki Motapanyane, Ph.D. Women's & Gender Studies, Dept. of Humanities Mount Royal University Chair, Alberta Historical Resources Foundation Mothers, Sex and Sexuality is the most inspiring book to come down the book-birth-canal in ages; delicious food for thought, diverse, multifaceted perspectives, titillating taboo topics, and deep sexual intelligence. If you are like me--not a birth mother and not that interested in motherhood-- this book is still for you. -- Annie Sprinkle?Artist/Sexecologist/Educator
