Nancy Friday's sexually and socially empowering international bestsellers My Secret Garden and Forbidden Flowers revealed that women possess erotic imaginations at least as inventive and powerful as those of men. Women on Top looks at a new generation of women and asks: what are women's sexual fantasies today? How have they responded to the changes brought about by feminism, and the sexual freedom it provided? In a world wallpapered with erotic images, but which still denies them full sexual freedom, women are more determined than ever that they'll be 'nice girls' no longer. Explicit, iconoclastic, often shocking, these erotic stories - angry, lustful, tender and dark - blow apart the old social and sexual taboos. Nothing is forbidden.

Female sexual fantasy began in 1973 with Nancy Friday’s multi-million-selling collection of real women’s fantasies, My Secret Garden. Until that book was published, female sexual fantasy did not exist; not even within the pages of Cosmopolitan, their opinion at the time being: ‘Women do not have sexual fantasies, period. Men do.’ Friday’s book changed all that. Now, exactly forty years on from Friday’s masterpiece, leading sex writer Emily Dubberley is curating a brand new female fantasy classic for the modern era. It’s a post-Fifty Shades, post-Sex and the City world and in Garden of Desires, hundreds of real women share details of their most private thoughts. This is an exploration of the meaning of desire. Dare to read, dare to dream, and dare to discover the new truths of female sexuality. The stories are red hot and completely original. And they’re going to make your heart beat faster – and make headlines nationwide.

This is a book about men who love women. But it is not a collection of love stories. It is a study of the secret, erotic fantasies that men have always kept hidden, a taboo-shattering investigation that reveals the deepest, most conflicting feelings that men have about women, men and their own sexuality. Men in Love goes beyond the socio-sexual clich� of woman seen as either madonna or whore to reveal the conflict of love and rage at the centre of men's emotions and erotic desires. Based on thousands of candid responses from men ranging from their teens to their sixties, Men in Love - startling and shocking - will change men's deepest feelings about their sexuality and make the women who care about them understand them as never before.

The bestselling author of My Secret Garden exposes the wild and sexy fantasies that many of us have but are afraid to share. For over thirty years, Nancy Friday has written about eros, love, beauty, and seduction. Now she returns to the territory she pioneered during the sexual revolution—exploring our most taboo sexual desires. Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will love this provocative collection of real fantasies from dozens of women—and for the first time, men. Friday knows that forbidden sex "gets us higher faster" and explores love, lust and power through erotic tales of domination, masturbation, S&M, threesomes, and more. Beyond My Control: Forbidden Fantasies in an Uncensored Age shows that our forbidden fantasies are not compensation for a lackluster sex life, but are a critical component of our fullest selves—and how our secret desires can lead to exhilarating and satisfying sexual freedom. Praise for Nancy Friday "YOU'LL BLUSH, YOUR PULSE WILL RACE."—The New York Times "Delicious... women can share in their sisters' secrets and not feel that they are alone."—Los Angeles Times "Nancy Friday's work... demonstrate[s] beyond doubt that the emancipation of women's bodies begins with the emancipation of our minds." —Faye Wattleton, former president, Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Asked what they fantasize about, more than one hundred women in Ireland were willing to share. The results are in this book. It seems that there is a real hunger to know what other women are thinking about sex - perhaps just out of curiosity, perhaps because we want to know whether what we are thinking is normal. (Don’t worry, it is.) Well, Irish women are thinking about men and women and couples. They are thinking about their partners, their partners’ best friends, their bosses, their neighbours and their priests. They are thinking about that gorgeous blue-eyed guy from the pub - and his brother too. They are thinking about dominating their lovers and being dominated by them. They are thinking about intimate moments with long-term partners and brief encounters with faceless strangers. They are thinking about airport car parks, hotels, libraries and swimming pools. Hopefully, bringing together the sexual fantasies of these women will start a conversation about sex, how women in this country think about it, and how they want it. Hopefully, reading this book will make your pulse race.

Gnosis means knowledge. But we are not referring to just any knowledge. Gnosis is knowledge which produces a great transformation in those who receive it. Knowledge capable of nothing less than waking up man and helping him to escape from the prison in which he finds himself. That is why Gnosis has been so persecuted throughout the course of history, because it is knowledge considered dangerous for the religious and political authorities who govern mankind from the shadows. Every time this religion, absolutely different from the rest, appears before man, the other religions unite to try to destroy or hide it again. Primordial Gnosis is the original Gnosis, true Gnosis, eternal Gnosis, Gnostic knowledge in its pure form. Due to multiple persecutions, Primordial Gnosis has been fragmented, distorted and hidden.
