Description

Sex Talks to Girls chronicles the outward antics of a woman on an inward journey to self through the routes of religion, sex, sobriety, and kids. Recasting herself in this memoir as 'Molly Meek,' Maureen Seaton interprets the emergence of Molly's identity in luxurious and very funny prose.Molly alternately finds herself in the surprising company of winos, swingers, and drag kings; in love with Jesus H. Christ and a butch named Mars; in charge of two children; writing stories that shrink painfully to poems without her permission; and incapable of figuring out how she landed in any of these predicaments. She is, by turns, a little saint, a Stepford wife, a bi-mom, and a femme with super powers. Her transformation - from near-nun to full-fledged sexual being, accidentally becoming conscious in the process and delighting in the spree - is the story of a life set on play and a woman heroically committed to seeing it through.
