What I’m reading… Joy St James aka ‘The Scholarly Slut’

Her latest post:

What I’m reading… Sexuality in Western Art

The book covers art from the so-called “prehistoric Venuses,” cave paintings and carvings and takes the reader on a fascinating tour of the whole of western art (with a few diversions to eastern art such as the Japanese Shunga woodblock painting “The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife”) and arrives safely in the present time.

What I’m reading: Two Decades Naked by Leigh Hopkinson

From the article in The Guardian

Is working as a stripper honestly empowering? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself since I quit stripping 18 months ago, after spending two decades naked.

What I’m reading… Out of Eden: The Surprising Consequences of Polygamy

From Amazon:

In this changing world of what is socially and politically “correct,” polygamy is perhaps the last great taboo. Over the last thousand years, monogamy – at least in name – has been the default setting for coupledom and procreation in the Western world. And yet, throughout history, there have been inklings that “one-man, one-woman” […]

What I’m reading – Joy St James ‘Pour On The Pink!’

“A woman who tries to act like a man is a total waste of a woman.” So asserts Shelley Zalis, the founder of the “Girls’ Lounge” — as counterpoint to the traditional “boy’s club” dominating business culture.
