The Friday 56 - Jan 12

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.




Rules:


  • Grab a book, any book.
  • Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
  • (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
  • Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
  • Post it.

Contemporary culture focuses so much on the need to have a great sex life. They say sex sells, and it certainly is used to sell everything from hamburgers and cars to vacations and electronics. Yet when it comes to the way media represents sex--from TV to Oscar-winning films to porn--the pleasure of women is presented as secondary, if presented at all.


You can visit this week's Friday 56 at Freda's blog to find more books to check out.

How very true...hmmm. I do find that culture frustrating! Is this a non-fiction book? I love the title, by the way! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :)

Thanks for stopping by, gang.

Laurel, always great to have you here.

Lauren, Sassy, Catherine and Freda, I'm glad you found it intriguing. I picked it up as an Amazon Vine review title. Really need to finish it.

Jo-Ann, it is non-fiction. It's a book of essays. I must have been in a cranky mood when I snagged it. :)
