Dear Olive,

A few years ago, I read this book.  It captivated me.  Not for the obvious voyeuristic reasons, but because it struck me as an unlikely stroke of feminism to apply science to sex.  The implications included:

  • Defining the pleasure and response of women underscored them as equal partners and; sometimes, more highly evolved physiologically.
  • Passion, ambition, and grit often outpace the limitations of a lack of higher education.
In a world that has come so far since 1960, I often think how lucky I am that so many women risked so much to get us to where we are, and how I reap the benefits daily in other ways that sometimes have nothing to do with sex.
