Few girls do it or even fewer will admit to it. However in Toni Bentley’s bold and intimate memoir, The Surrender, she pulls the sheets again on an erotic enjoy that is been forbidden for the reason that Bible and celebrates “the enjoyment that lies at the different aspect of conference, the place chance is actual and rapture is living.” From Story of O to The Kiss to The Sexual Lifetime of Catherine M., readers were enthralled with sexually subversive memoirs through girls. However even the ones erotic classics did not navigate the psychosexual terrain that Bentley does while she meets a lover who introduces her to an intensive and sudden excitement, to the “holy” act that she got here to peer as her awakening.

The Surrender is a witty, sensible, and eloquent exploration of 1 lady’s obsession as a way to be sure you go away readers wondering their very own wants.
