Imagine you could give an essay entitled How to Make Me Come to a past, present or future sex partner, free of judgment or repercussion. What would you want them to know? In this book inspired by Emma Koenig's wildly popular website, a diverse collective of women do just that. Emma Koenig was inspired to answer this question after a truly frustrating sexual experience wit Imagine you could give an essay entitled How to Make Me Come to a past, present or future sex partner, free of judgment or repercussion. What would you want them to know? In this book inspired by Emma Koenig's wildly popular website, a diverse collective of women do just that. Emma Koenig was inspired to answer this question after a truly frustrating sexual experience with a partner. As she says, "The simplest version of this story devoid of all identifying details: He thought I had an orgasm. I hadn't." She knew she couldn't be the only woman to have been mystified by an experience such as this, and so her Tumblr, How to Make Me Come, was born as a safe space for women to talk honestly and openly.

Moan tackles the ideas surrounding the sometimes elusive orgasm head on. Here is a look into the spectrum of desire. Of frustration. Of experiences that have left an impact.

What people are saying about it: Prioritizing women's pleasure is a critical part of our liberation. Not only is Moan an intimate, educational and funny collection about orgasm and desire but it pushes the cultural conversation forward." -- Rashida Jones, actress, writer, producer "Koenig's book is exactly what we need to break the absurd, toxic silence around female sexual pleasure." -- Peggy Orenstein, bestselling author of Girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter

    3 1/2 Interesting at first but then seemed to get repetitive. It hit all kinds of age and sex. Mostly 20 some olds that seem to masterbate 24/7 and almost prefer that over everything. I have nothing against 20 some year olds. I like the idea of empowering woman to talk about sex and orgasms. It needs to be conversation we need to have more often without feeling like we are sluts or preverted. Woman talking about sex or even liking sex always has a bad connotation, and men can watch talk and brag 3 1/2 Interesting at first but then seemed to get repetitive. It hit all kinds of age and sex.

Interesting and liberating. Received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley

    Was this book occasionally repetitive? Sure. Did I find it fascinating anyway? Absolutely. As with any essay collection there are going to be some pieces that are better than others (and this is no exception), but what makes this collection so interesting to me is the sheer volume and the way the voices both echo and contradict one another. With each essay around two to three pages in length (a few are longer, but this was pretty consistent average) there are a lot of perspectives in here. I find Was this book occasionally repetitive?

With each essay around two to three pages in length (a few are longer, but this was pretty consistent average) there are a lot of perspectives in here. I find it interesting getting to hear women speak anonymously, and thus totally honestly, about their sexual experiences. There are plenty of pieces in here that are basically just women relating what works for them in the bedroom, but there are plenty more about what *doesn't* work, first experiences, ruminations on femininity, how things have changed for them, how they feel different, or just how they feel in general. These aren't stories you often get to hear, and even when I couldn't relate (although there were a few where I very much could) I was interested. My biggest critique would be the apparent lack of variety in the essayists. Its hard to be sure, since it is anonymous, but the contributors did seem to come from fairly uniform backgrounds, which could have been improved. I'd have liked to have read more essays from queer women, assault survivors, and various age groups. There are essays from all of those groups, but not nearly as many as there are from 20-something college educated women. I suspect this is because many essays were collected online. The foreword talks about how sexuality is part of what makes us human, and by denying women their sexuality we deny them the ability to be fully human. I truly believe this, and this book put a very human voice to the varied world of women's sexual experiences. A great book for anyone interested in sexuality, regardless of gender.

    the essays are so similar that the book got really repetitive. I wish there’d been more of an effort to showcase a wider variety of perspectives about sex and orgasms - the writers are all cis, almost all the writers are women who are writing about having sex with men, none of the writers are asexual, very few are postmenopause, etc.

    It would have been nice to have a wider variety of essay topics beyond “I used to fake orgasms.” There were some that didn’t center around this, but it didn’t feel like many. Open conversations about sex, and especially women enjoying sex, are necessary and empowering, but the repetitiveness took me out of the actual coolness of getting to read women talking about orgasms. Additionally, there was certainly a lot of talking about lack of orgasms.

Additionally, there was certainly a lot of talking about lack of orgasms. It makes me kind of sad that when there is conversation about orgasms and female sexual pleasure, the gist is that many women still have trouble with having any at all, as is made evident in this book. I suppose all women have complicated relationships with sex, but I wish the focus was wider than given in this book. It was still a fascinating and important read, I just felt like I didn’t get a lot out of it.

    Couldn’t be any more explicit! Honest and open reflections by a variety of women, and pretty inspiring.

    Funny but serious. I think what I took away from Emma Koenig's book is don't sell yourself short ladies and gentlemen. I LOVED all the essays and I thought it was pretty diverse in perspectives. The female orgasm is something that is sort of "taboo" to talk about due to the way that society has socialized the idea of women and sex. In most pornography, the sex is done when the guy cums without any interest in the women's actual enjoyment at all. I think it's lit that books exist like this to Funny but serious.

I think it's lit that books exist like this to combat these negative ideologies stuffed down our throats about sex. I also like that the essays here are all over the place in their experiences. It's not monolithic. There's so many perspectives that I found myself laughing out loud about or losing my breath over while reading this in public. For example, the essay by the one lady who could only cum if she was told a story about her partner having sex with someone else who's not her.. that's a unique experience and it made me go - ohhh, well damn. Countless stories about women who spoke up for themselves and their own pleasure because they were sick of the bullshit. I can ride with this. These are the kind of stories involved in MOAN and it's honestly refreshing to read women write about their firsts, their happiness, sadness, ease and struggle when it comes to orgasms. I loved it. It wasn't repetitive at all.

    This book was wonderful! If you are sexually active and any of your sexual activity involves a female, you should read this book! This book did a great job speaking to female issues both in the bedroom and out of the bedroom (or wherever it is that you're 'doing it'--haha); it normalized so many experiences for me as a woman...I read large parts of the book with my partner and it was a great experience. Highly recommend :) It seems to be underrated for whatever reason, so here I am recommending This book was wonderful!

    Hm. Okay. Yeah, okay. I’m in two minds about this. Firstly, it’s irritatingly repetitive. There are only a handful of essays that don’t ultimately say the same thing which is ‘once upon a time, I couldn’t cum, but then I met the one man - emphasis on man, because these essays focus primarily (though not all) on straight, cis women - who could make me cum, and now I have earth shattering orgasms every day’. Like, fantastic. But where are the essays that talk about communication? And I’m talking g Hm. Okay. Yeah, okay. I’m in two minds about this. Firstly, it’s irritatingly repetitive.

Some touch on it, sure. But maybe I’m just not getting the point of the book. Anywho, there are essays in this book that are genuinely eye opening, comedic, hopeful and some, gut wrenchingly sad. I commend the women that wrote these essays, but to the author that collected them, a bit of variety never hurt anybody.

    2.5 perhaps. A mixed bag, which I suppose is to be expected from an anthology of anonymous essays. While I think the subject of female orgasm is really important and I really like the idea behind the book, I found that the essays fell into one of three categories: dull, annoying, or mildly interesting. Taken altogether, they actually felt rather repetitive. The strongest essays tended to be ones that read as actual essays, rather than a litany of highly specific requests (almost as if the prompt 2.5 perhaps.

Because it feels like these would very much work for a blog but do not work gathered together here in a book.

Additionally, there were some unscientific moments in the book (FYI: not having had sex within the last couple days/weeks does NOT mean your vagina is tighter, to combat one particular unscientific moment). None of these moments had corrective footnote or forwards or whatever, which seems somewhat irresponsible.

    Hearing it from a different point of view was good As a male who considers himself a feminist or an ally of feminist women, I was interested to hear a woman talk about orgasms. I've been in a committed relationship for 25 years and it was good to hear other women talk about it to help see if anything I could do to improve with my partner. She seems open and good at communication, but I also needed to understand if she is sending visual signals that it is or isn't true.

    I enjoyed reading about the different women's perspectives and experience. I didn't find the stories repetitive although I can understand that criticism found in some of the other reviews. I do feel that there was a dearth of older women, women with children living at home, and especially women in long term monogamous relationships. None the less, I feel there are some valuable lessons for both women and lovers of women in this book.

    I really enjoyed this group of essays. Female orgasms (and lack thereof) is a topic I have discussed a bit with my friends, and it was validating as h*ck to read about these women's experiences. There were parts that made me nod in sympathy, parts that hyped me up, and best of all, essays that put my emotional experiences into words. Some essays were lists, some had regret, some were about women who found it very easy to orgasm!

    Rachel Bloom’s foreword is better than any of the essays in here. Also, some of the authors didn’t quite understand that instructing the reader on how to make the author climax is not an essay on sexuality and orgasm, it’s just boring smut. I don’t give a shit how you like to be fucked. I did however appreciate the essays that were more about perspectives and experiences and insights.

    I had hoped for great insights, or at least some kind of analysis of what was being reported. Quite disappointed but that might be because I expected more than the author intended. It's clear, however, that most women's experiences around sex are complicated and often fraught with ego (both parties - one often having a big one, the other quite small), history, notions of love and worth, technique and anxiety. Like many women, however, I already knew all this. I just feel, like many sexual experi I had hoped for great insights, or at least some kind of analysis of what was being reported.

    I love that Koenig put this book together in an effort to normalize discussion around female orgasm and I did read it quite quickly because I was thoroughly entertained. However, some of the essays are poorly written (juvenile? trying too hard to be funny? not given enough page time to truly develop and be memorable?) and like reviewers before me, I found the collection of voices to be overwhelmingly homogenous.

    Charlie Gavey

    A great concept, but I think these would be better suited to the original blog format. Many of the "essays" were very similar, and seemed to have taken the writing prompt quite literally, resulting in multiple essays using a list format. The authors lost me when they chose to include an essay that spoke at length about using alternative healing methods to address pre-cancerous cells, against medical recommendation.

    This was pretty eye-opening, and there were some interesting stories. The breadth of experiences surrounding orgasm was remarkable. As pointed out by other reviewers, the set of authors is not very diverse; mostly college educated women in their 20s, with a sprinkling of older women, most of whom I suspect were white and middle class.

    To say that I liked this book would be a gross oversimplification. I loved this, and everything that it represents. Reading essays on any single topic will tend to get repetitive, however part of the beauty of sexuality, and what the book intends to show, is that all our experiences are vastly different. This kept each essay feeling fresh, new, and interesting.

    Bradley Farless

    It was interesting. A little repetitive so the essay choice could have been better, or maybe most submissions were a bit repetitive? Anyway, the takeaway for me here is that every woman is different and female orgasm is as much emotional and mental as physical. And if you want to have the best experience, open, honest communication is key.

I love reading about women talking about pleasure and desire and I think it’s extremely important. Most of the perspectives are from cis-heterosexual women.

    Very nice & light read overall, however, the book definitely lacked queer women authors, as well as had some un-edited bits of misinformation (e.g. parts about "vaginal" and "clitoral" orgasms, or claims that having less sex will keep your vagina tight...), which was pretty disappointing considering that this book was supposed to INFORM and not MISLEAD.

    I like this book for so many reasons, but the biggest reason of all is how it highlights the seemingly infinite ways that some women get off. For most men, it's pretty darn straightforward, but this book shows how it's not always so simple for those of us with vaginas. Favorite line: "I want a woman who inhabits her body like it's a house she built herself."
