New Erotica for Feminists: Satirical Fantasies of Love, Lust, and Equal Pay | Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor, Carrie Wittmer
33 posts | 20 read | 69 to read
Based off of the viral McSweeney's piece "New Erotica for Feminists" He calls me into his office and closes the door . . . to promote me. He promotes me again and again. I am wild with ecstasy. Imagine a world where erotica was written by feminists: Their daydreams include equal pay, a gender-balanced Congress, and Tom Hardy arriving at their doorstep to deliver a fresh case of LaCroix every week. Both light-hearted and empowering, New Erotica for Feminists is a sly, satirical take on all the things that turn feminists on. From a retelling of Adam and Eve to tales of respectful Tinder dates, New Erotica for Feminists answers the question of "What do women really want?" with stories of power, equality, and an immortal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“If satire and erotica made some questionable choices in the back of a Volkswagen van, their baby would be New Erotica for Feminists.” A witty hour-long #audiobook read by Soneela Nankani. I listened to it three times before returning it to the library and it made me smile every time. The authors “hope it makes you burn… for equality.”

My only complaint is that this book is too short! It is brilliant. If you are a feminist with a sense of humor who doesn‘t mind some mild erotica, then this book is definitely for you.

They rewrite classic literature, history, and pop culture from a feminist perspective and have some original stories, too.

Like Does it Fart: The Definitive Field Guid to Animal Flatulence this book was born via social media riffs and is consequently not the deepest or most in-depth take on a subject. But, it made me snort in public.

IndyHannaJones Will there be sexy stories in there about the time my male boss DIDN'T man-splain my job to me. It's truly a tittlating classic. The part where he says 'well, you know more about this than me...' gets me particularly hot 8mo

Perfect reading while caring for a vomiting toddler. Short, funny, requires very little attention span. Also feminist AF. Obvi.

Mehso-so

It was clever, but not really laugh out loud funny.
I would have liked to see the ideas flushed out a tiny bit more, so they weren't just the punchline, but the entire story.

Many of these brief vignettes are very funny, but although the four (white) authors note up front that they are trying to be conscience of making it as intersectional as possible, it ultimately feels a lot like standard white feminism. (Lots of predicable RGB references, for instance.)

More of a coffee table or bathroom book than anything. Between a so-so and a pick for me.

Well that was fun, and sad that there was so much truth. Satire from 4 Second City Comedians- Erotica for those of us whose wildest fantasies include- equal pay, gender equality and respect! Very fast 144 pages read from the Libby app- I even read aloud from it in our lunchroom and the women laughed, and laughed- the men looked quizical...🤣😇💃🏻

I first learned about New Erotica for Feminists on Instagram, so I was delighted when my good friend gave this to me for my birthday last weekend. The short satirical sketches are very funny and great to read a few at a time when I‘m between bigger reading projects.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This satirical vignette collection is well organized, sharp, smart, often witty, certainly timely, but just WAY too short. I liked it, but wanted more. The cover and endpapers are fabulous, however, and, as a whole, it would be the perfect gift book for a variety of readers.

Absolutely perfect! 😂🙌🏻💜🙌🏻💜🙌🏻💜🙌🏻🤣Exceeded my expectations. It‘s a must read for any self-declared feminist, really for anyone aware of what females do through daily. It‘s a great collection of vignettes depicting fantasies like men agreeing to pay half for contraception, male bosses promoting women based solely on their work & potential, and men realizing and apologizing for their inappropriate behavior.

A quick, fun read that made me laugh out loud. As always with satire, it's a shame it has to exist at all but since it does it might as well be entertaining, empowering and sharply observed. Tackle careers, dating literature, films, parenthood etc. It's a hoot
