MOMENTUM: The Anthology
March 21, 2012 – 6:21 am | One Comment

We’ve gone and done it. Because organizing a conference just isn’t quite enough work for your intrepid organizers (that would be us, Tess and Dee, we’re waving at you), we decided to add another project to fill up our spare time. Of course, we wanted it to be something amazing, and since we have a group of amazing presenters, who also happen to be writers, we decided to put together the first MOMENTUM anthology. Thankfully a lot of our presenters thought this was a smashing idea, and generously wrote essays based on their 2012 sessions. So you can take the con home with you! Or if you missed it, for whatever reason, you can download the book on Amazon and read all about it. It’s the next best thing to being there!

MOMENTUM, the conference, deals with a plethora of issues that revolve around the themes of sexuality, feminism and relationships. In today’s climate, with a veritable war on women happening all around us -the Rush vs Sandra brouhaha, Susan G. Komen and the Planned Parenthood nightmare, worries about the availability of birth control, and some newspapers pulling Gary Trudeau’s dead on Doonesbury strips dealing with compulsory transvaginal ultrasounds prior to abortions – events like MOMENTUM become even more crucial.

This collection, begins with a foreword by a truly amazing and inspirational woman, Dr. Joycelyn Elders, that reads like a rousing call to action, something those of us who believe in MOMENTUM, can well relate to and ends with the hauntingly, beautiful poem by Leela Sinha, Easy Does It, that reflects on what would happen if we let pleasure be a guide. And in between that motivational start and reflective end, you’ll find the same diversity there is at MOMENTUM; stories about sex work and social justice, about the Pleasure Revolution, about the challenges of being a sex educator, about combating sexual abuse and violence within our communities, about senior sex and about sexual orientation and gender and much, much more.

We are so very proud of this book and so very grateful to the authors of the essays and to our co-editor, Inara De Luna, who can publish a mean e-book. Seek her out if you need assistance! Wait, don’t, we need her!

Now go, check it out on Amazon – Momentum: Making Waves in Sexuality, Feminism, & Relationships - and pick it up for only $9.99. That’s a lot of smarts for ten bucks!
