New Erotica for Feminists
He calls me into his office and closes the door . . . to promote me. He promotes me again and again. I am wild with ecstasy.
Imagine a world where all erotica was written by feminists: Their daydreams include equal pay, a gender-balanced Congress, and Tom Hardy arriving at their doorstep to deliver a fresh case of LaCroix every week.
Both light-hearted and empowering, New Erotica for Feminists—based off of the viral McSweeney’s piece of the same name—is a sly, satirical take on all the things that turn feminists on. From a retelling of Adam and Eve to tales of respectful Tinder dates, New Erotica for Feminists answers the question of “What do women really want?” with stories of power, equality, and an immortal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Co-written with Carrie and writing partners Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, and Fiona Taylor, the book all started on G-chat. It quickly it became a piece of biting satire, and then it was published in McSweeney's Internet Tendency. And it went viral. And then they got a book deal which at first they thought was an internet scam!
Published November 2018 in the US by Plume Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House. In the UK, the book is published by Sceptre.
