My Secret Garden
My Secret Garden is the classic study of women's sexual fantasies. Written in the 1970's, Nancy Friday attracted criticism and confusion from many men who believed women didn't fantasize. Oh how wrong they were!
After a calamitous attempt at introducing fantasy into her own sex life, Friday felt as if she was the only woman who fantaszsed. Luckily, when she married she dared to mention her thoughts to her husband who responded far more positively and, as feminism led to a more liberal attitude in the world, she decided to write a book about female fantasy.
She interviewed a wide range of women recruited through newspaper advertisements. The resulting book details a plethora of fantasies in women's own words.
My Secret Garden offers an intriguing and often graphic account of what women really think about. Explicit, shocking and above all liberating, these are the fantasies of women celebrating their sexuality.
Women today know they are entitled to anger and fantasy in a safe playground. These new women have no models, no blueprints; they have to make themselves up. One of the ways they try out new roles is in their erotic dreams...
"The secrecy in female fantasy - the degree and essential meaning of it only came to me when I realized how many women's fantasies were secret even to themselves; hence the title of my book." - Nancy Friday.
"A fascinating book, a funny book, a liberating book, a sisterly book, and, yes, an Important Work worthy of a place among the best of sexology..." - Jill Tweedie

Value Quality Price
A mind-blowing book - with fantasies ranging from masochism and domination to fetishism and lesbianism, every taste is covered. Some of the fantasies are extreme, such as the woman who details her daydreams about having sex with a donkey. Some are distressing, like the woman who describes her father abusing her as a child as a formative sexual experience. Many are arousing, with explicit descriptions of every kind of sex imaginable.
