Sex memoir - Perfect Strangers: A Memoir of the Swinging 70's by Dorothy Freed
If you love real-life sex details, you'll want to check out Perfect Strangers, the new memoir by Dorothy Freed about her time living a wild sexual life in the 1970's. It's available in ebook and print. To learn more about the book, check out this review by erotica author LN Bey.
PERFECT STRANGERS: A Memoir of the Swinging 70’s, is an upbeat, tongue-in-cheek account of becoming sexually liberated and personally empowered—via three-plus years of rampant promiscuity. In 1974, I was twenty-nine, naïve, and deeply frustrated by my inability to achieve orgasm during intercourse with my husband, Paul. When I found him, naked and on top of my good friend, Cassandra, it wasn’t the infidelity that hurt the most—it was the sizzling sex they were engaged in that cut to my core. Damn, I thought, watching her orgasm for what seemed like hours. Twelve years of marriage. We were never that hot! With that, my life changed in an instant, and my erotic journey began. I began dating, after splitting with Paul, hoping for another chance at happily ever after—but after a series of unsatisfying encounters, I gave up on love, and launched an all-out search for a sexually compatible perfect stranger. PERFECT STRANGERS spotlights the sensitive issue of female sexual satisfaction. My adventures in the Land of Oz—otherwise known as mid-70s San Francisco—takes place in an era when casual sex seemed as easy as a handshake; but for a woman to achieve orgasm, vaginal or otherwise—well, good luck with that! My sex-positive tale touches on issues pertinent to countless women. My target audience is every woman who has ever faked an orgasm, every woman who has divorced, dated and struggled to start over, and every woman who has dared to live out a sexual fantasy—or dreamed of doing so.
