Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good

Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good

by Adrienne Maree Brown Author

What can we learn about activism from sex? Surprisingly quite a bit. Using feminist (and specifically black feminist) history & theory, brown informs us how to do good by feeling good. As Audre Lorde famously asserted, self-care is a radical act. This book challenges us to rethink how we look at sex and sexual pleasure, and then use what we learn from that to start changing the world - one orgasm at a time.
