OVERVIEW

It’s My Pleasure challenges what it means to have sex-positive attitudes in a country with a history and current reality of white supremacy. In her debut book, Asebiomo traces the myths and misinformation of sex positivity back to racism, homophobia, transphobia, white settler colonialism and capitalism.

It deconstructs myths like:

  • You must be having sex to be sex positive.
  • Talking about sex with young people will encourage them to be sexually active.
  • Pleasure should be a luxury.


Intended as a tool to examine the harmful beliefs we have about sex and how these beliefs are in service of oppressive systems, It’s My Pleasure includes the real experiences of sexuality educators, university professors, psychologists, sex workers, sexual health advocates and social justice organizers. This book urges readers to reflect on their own sex education while also guiding them in reimagining their own paths towards freedom and liberation.
