The idea behind this project is that many of our friends have been reluctant to share--and claim ownership of--stories of their less-than-perfect sexual experiences; to do so would be to admit that they were not having the porn-perfect, stably monogamous, heterosexual sex that is socially dictated to them. Rather than seeing this ideal as a flaw in the social fabric, many women continue to see it as a personal shortcoming: they are unattractive, clumsy creatures; they should expect physical discomfort or emotional pain; they are frigid or they are whores. In sharing their stories, the women in this zine reject these degrading notions of women’s sexualities and take a decidedly empowered view on what awkward sex teaches us about ourselves and our desires.
**NOTE: The zine is half legal size and requires an oversized envelope; that is why the shipping costs more than a standard letter.**
