Sex Lives of Australian Women by Joan Sauers

Book Description

Sex is everywhere, yet we rarely discuss our own intimate experiences. Even our lovers often don't know our secret histories or desires - until now. Australian women believe that an active sex life is vital to their sense of wellbeing, but we still see sex as something that's a bit dirty, a bit naughty, a bit embarrassing. We rarely compare notes about what we do in the bedroom. Who knows if their behaviour, physical responses and emotions is something we have in common with our friends and neighbours? Joan Sauers created a forum in which Australian women could share their darkest secrets, their desires, fears and furtive dreams and speak their minds about sex and sexuality. The anonymous online survey attracted nearly 2,000 responses from women of all ages, living in every state and territory in the country. They were straight, bi and lesbian; single, dating, married, divorced and widowed; childless women, mothers and grandmothers. This is a book for anyone interested in sexual behaviour and attitudes - men as well as women - and a book for women who don't always feel comfortable talking to their friends or sisters or mums about a subject that matters so much to all of us.

Book Review: Sex Lives of Australian Women by Joan Sauers - Reviewed by (13 Jan 2010)

Sex Lives of Australian Women is a compulsive read. It contains page after page of information about the sexual lives of thousands of women who participated in an anonymous survey. Divided into sections based around the questions posed, we learn about women’s orgasms, masturbation, relationship to pornography, sexual preferences and their affairs. The information is mostly anecdotal but there are statistics to support the personal disclosures. The women are identified by their age, occupation and the state in which they live. Differences between women are normalised by the sheer number and repetitive nature of the entries. Editor Joan Sauers has done a fine job gathering a representative selection of anecdotes, but occasionally her authorial voice passes judgement a little heavyhandedly. ‘Frankly,’ Sauers suggests at one point. ‘I think a lot of us would be more sane if we had more sex more often.’ It is this kind of intrusive opiniongiving...
