The Hotbed Collective's first book is out! It's called More Orgasms Please: Why Female Pleasure Matters, and we are very proud of it. In it, we take on topics such as body image, feminist porn, sex in long-term relationships, and the pelvic floor, we feature lovely illustrations by Victoria Maddox, and reveal the answers to our two big reader surveys: one was on female orgasms, and the other was on sex after kids.
We wanted to write something uplifting about female sexuality. We also wanted to give other women some encouragement to discover more about themselves: what they like, and why their desire may sometimes feel as if it's hiding under a big pile of laundry. We quote experts, thinkers and scientific studies. We tell some of our own stories. We write about positive female sexual role models, and give tips on oral sex, masturbation and body confidence.
It has been a pleasure to work with Penguin Square Peg on this, and we hope you enjoy reading it. You can buy it from Waterstones, Amazon, or you can order it at your nearest independent book shop. We also highly recommend the Kindle edition and the audiobook, which was recorded by us - Lisa Williams and Anniki Sommerville - in what was probably the most rewarding two days of our working lives!
Please get in touch to let us know what you think of it and, if you're really brave and want to help us out, you can leave us a review on Amazon or, better, post a photo of the cover on social media.
Here's to more orgasms! Please...
