In a post-50 Shades of Grey world, a new audience is ready for Nancy Friday’s groundbreaking work on female sexual fantasies. Women on Top explores the changing face of sex and power dynamics through over 150 collected fantasies from real women.
More than ever before, women everywhere are devouring the hottest stories from behind closed doors, tales of sexual encounters designed to create new frissons of excitement with each turn of the page. But the fantasies in this book aren’t fiction. They are the real erotic imaginings of real women . . . and nothing is more exciting than that.
Nancy Friday, whose collections of women’s sexual fantasies include My Secret Garden and Forbidden Flowers, offers up “a smorgasbord of sensual scenarios” (New Women) in this explicit New York Times bestseller that puts women in control of their sexual destinies. Nearly two hundred women contributed, in their own uncensored words and through interviews with the author, the shocking, daring, amusing, untamed, and pulse-pounding imaginings that turn them on the most. “The fantasies are fascinating,” raves Esquire magazine, no doubt because unlike anything any novel could ever truly capture, they allow open access to what women really desire.
