In this groundbreaking new look at rape edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and “Full Frontal Feminism” and “HeOCOs A Stud, SheOCOs A Slut” author Jessica Valenti, the way we view rape in our culture is finally dismantled and replaced with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure. Feminist, political, and activist writers alike will present their ideas for a paradigm shift from the ?No Means NoOCO model?an approach that while necessary for where we were in 1974, needs an overhaul today.
“Yes Means Yes” will bring to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape. “Yes Means Yes” aims to have radical and far-reaching effects: from teaching men to treat women as collaborators and not conquests, encouraging men and women that women can enjoy sex instead of being shamed for it, and ultimately, that our children can inherit a world where rape is rare and swiftly punished. With commentary on public sex education, pornography, mass media, “Yes Means Yes” is a powerful and revolutionary anthology.”
