From Margin to Mainstream

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Non-fiction anthologies tend to include some strong entries and others that are not so compelling or well-written. There's more good than bad in Best Sex Writing 2010.

What did you like best about this story?

For the most part, the essays are well-structured, covering topics of interest to people who identify as sex positive. This book might prove a challenge for social conservatives and anti-porn feminists.

Which character – as performed by Tara Tyler – was your favorite?

No characters, per se, but the narrator seemed interested in the words she was reading, which I always appreciate.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

As the book encompasses works by many writers, listening in bits and pieces while driving or doing chores may be a good approach.

Any additional comments?

The sex positive perspective permeates this book, with no representation from opponents of, for example, gay marriage or open relationships. It is not a dialogue, but a monologue. However, as conservative beliefs on sexuality are very well represented in the media, it is interesting to be able to hang out with the other side for a few hours.
