Bare: Irish Women’s Sexual Fantasies is the revolutionary exploration of female sexuality in Ireland. Inspired by 1973’s bestselling book My Secret Garden by Nancy Friday, Bare seeks to reveal the most intimate fantasies of women of every age. Author /editor Julianne Daly conducted a comprehensive survey of women living in Ireland, asking them to share and describe their sexual fantasies in explicit detail. There’s a treat for native Irish language speakers, as one fantasy is written entirely as Gaeilge!
Aoife Brennan has a fantasy included – prizes for who can guess which story is her’s….
Enhanced with a foreword by Shawna Scott, owner of online sex shop sexsiopa.ie, Bare strives to shine a spotlight on a topic that was once (and often, still is) considered taboo. Breaking open a new dialogue on women’s sexuality, the stories vary from the mild to the surprising to the provocative, with many beautifully written. These stories are written by women, for women, providing an engrossing glimpse into the modern women’s innermost sexual thoughts.
