Unmasked: Women Write about Sex and Intimacy After Fifty
Marcia Meier, editor (anthology)
A collection of 30 poems and 20 essays about sex and intimacy. It features works by women ranging in age from 50 to 87. All are published writers who are mothers, grandmothers, playwrights, professors, teachers, psychotherapists, copywriters, city council women, and even a model for a foot fetish website. The book is divided into four sections: Herbs (enticement), for sexual playfulness, flirting; Pomegranate (tasting), for dating and trying out different things; Bread (sustenance), for satisfying and/or long-term relationships; and Figs (sweetness), for the sweetness that can come from a delicious and loving bond that is both sexual and intimate.
