A collection of women’s intimate erotic thoughts by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Secret Garden and “liberator of the female libido” (Newsday).
The publication of the groundbreaking expose on women's sexual fantasies, My Secret Garden, ushered in a revolution in women's sexual freedom of expression. In Forbidden Flowers, Nancy Friday reveals even more erotic, wild, and explicit fantasies expressed by women all over the world, from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Like My Secret Garden before it, Forbidden Flowers is a celebration of the depth, potency, and imaginative breadth of women’s inner erotic lives. By giving female readers a glimpse into the ordinary and often extraordinary fantasies of other women, it offers to some an exhilarating freedom from the guilt and shame so often associated with sexual fantasy—and to others, provides fascinating insight into the psychology of female sexual response.
“The author whose books about gender politics helped redefine American women’s sexuality.” —The New York Times
