They promise the perfect antidote to the toils of everyday life, with lusty lingerie, taboo sex toys, and all manner of randy merchandise. They are the "naughty but nice" version of the classic Tupperware party. The premise of the Ann Summers party is simple: to provide an all-female environment where women can buy sexy lingerie, erotic fashion, sex toys, and other sex-related products. They are incredibly popular: thousands are held every week. But what really goes on at these "special" gatherings, where heterosexual women drink, laugh, shop, play party games, and talk about sex? Do they simply enable women to transgress social taboos in the comfort of their own homes? Or are they also a subtle means of constructing and enforcing heterosexual femininity? Storr develops a new analysis of the ways heterosexual women identify with and against each other—and of what this tells us about gender, sexuality, and consumption in contemporary society. This fascinating and fun book is an indispensable guide to the politics of "post-feminist" culture.": 6.25 x 10.5 in.: 235 pages. New with No Dust Jacket as issued .
