Reviews

If you read Three Women and thought, "Where are all the non-white people?", this book has the answer
Cosmopolitan
A boundary-breaking, fascinating and deeply affirming set of accounts that emphasises the necessity of allowing African women to tell the stories of their sexuality on their own terms
Otegha Uwagba
Such a beautiful read, like chatting to a friend over a cuppa. This is the intimate, insightful read that I didn't know I needed. Just brilliant
Dorothy Koomson
A captivating diasporic work of sensual geographies. Teeming with freedom and agency. Utterly triumphant
Irenosen Okojie
A beautiful, delicate and sometimes brutal exploration of African Womanhood and sexuality, honest and moving. A vital treasure
Bolu Babalola
Extraordinarily dynamic...Here is a book like none you will have read before. The women speak openly and invariably for the first time about their experiences of sex and relationships as they seek to claim individual agency, however that expresses itself. They share emotion-filled stories with honesty, addressing everyday personal dramas within the wider context in which self-worth and confidence are affected by racism and patriarchy, with revolution in the streets and revolution in the sheets being two sides of the same coin...With sensitivity, this book has facilitated astonishing breaking of silences
Margaret Busby, The Guardian
I just didn't want it to end. Each and every story is unique, powerful ... A global, ambitious collection that hums with the author's love for the subject and her interviewees
Goodreads
These personal stories reveal a mind-blowing variety of sexualities, sex lives and relationships. Fascinating.
