Before there was 50 Shades of Grey, there was the incomparable Forbidden Flowers—a collection of women’s fantasies so daring and explicit that Nancy Friday redefined female sexuality. Today, women everywhere clamor for the latest erotic bestselling novels—their scenes of daring sexual exploits have fired up our collective imagination. But before we turned to fiction for our turn-ons, Nancy Friday unleashed a sexual revolution with her collections of uninhibited writings—the real fantasies of real women, in books that broke all the rules. . . . FORBIDDEN FLOWERS After My Secret Garden, Nancy Friday’s first boundary-shattering collection, rocked America and freed women to put their most private longings and secret desires into words for all to read, hundreds more were inspired to do just that: From the seeds sown in My Secret Garden grew Forbidden Flowers, an even more explicit and colorful gathering of daring imaginings, uninhibited dreamings, and real-life experimental encounters experienced by women just like you. More fun than fiction, more supremely sexy than you ever imagined, here are the kinds of fantasies that dare you to cross a line and pluck some forbidden flowers of your very own.

What can a cultural history of the heartthrob teach us about women, desire, and social change? From dreams of Prince Charming or dashing military heroes, to the lure of dark strangers and vampire lovers; from rock stars and rebels to soulmates, dependable family types or simply good companions, female fantasies about men tell us as much about the history of women as about masculine icons. When girls were supposed to be shrinking violets, passionate females risked being seen as 'unbridled', or dangerously out of control. Change came slowly, and young women remained trapped in double-binds. You may have needed a husband in order to survive, but you had to avoid looking like a gold-digger. Sexual desire could be dangerous: a rash guide to making choices. Show attraction too openly and you might be judged 'fast' and undesirable. Education and wage-earning brought independence and a widening of cultural horizons. Young women in the early twentieth century showed a sustained appetite for novel-reading, cinema-going, and the dancehall. They sighed over Rudolph Valentino's screen performances, as tango-dancer, Arab tribesman, or desert lover. Contemporary critics were sniffy about 'shop-girl' taste in literature and in men, but as consumers, girls had new clout. In Heartthrobs, social and cultural historian Carol Dyhouse draws upon literature, cinema, and popular romance to show how the changing position of women has shaped their dreams about men, from Lord Byron in the early nineteenth century to boy-bands in the early twenty-first. Reflecting on the history of women as consumers and on the nature of fantasy, escapism, and 'fandom', she takes us deep into the world of gender and the imagination. A great deal of feminist literature has shown women as objects of the 'male gaze': this book looks at men through the eyes of women.

Juffer demonstrates how women's consumption of erotica and porn for their own pleasure can be empowering while simultaneously reinforcing conservative ideals. She shows, for instance, how the Victoria's Secret catalog functions as a kind of pornography whose popularity is enhanced by both its reliance on Victorian themes of secrecy and privacy and by its appeals to the pleasures of modern career women. In her pursuit to understand what women like and how they get it, Juffer delves into adult cable channels, erotic literary anthologies, sex therapy guides, cyberporn, masturbation, and sex toys, showing the degrees to which these materials have been domesticated for home consumption.

Ich wusste sofort, dass ich etwas in Händen hielt, was ich nicht sehen wollte. Dennoch zog ich die Karte aus dem Umschlag und starrte auf die Schrift. Alles Gute zum Jahrestag! Ich fürchtete, mich übergeben zu müssen, faltete dennoch die Karte auseinander. Auf der Innenseite stand mein Name. Leah Einzig mein Vorname. In kindlicher Schrift. Jeder Buchstabe hatte eine andere Größe. Ich warf die Karte zurück auf den Tisch, als könnte sie mir körperliche Schmerzen zufügen. Meine Wohnung schien noch kleiner zu werden, als versuchte sie, mich zu erdrücken ... Meine Vergangenheit holte mich ein.
