Inspired by 1973's bestselling book My Secret Garden by Nancy Friday, Bare: Irish Women's Sexual Fantasies seeks to reveal the innermost fantasies of women, ranging in age from eighteen to eighty. The author conducted a survey of over one hundred women living in Ireland, asking them to describe their sexual fantasies in explicit detail. The results have been eye-opening. Book-ended by a statistic-filled introduction and a theorising conclusion by the editor, Bare aims to shine a spotlight on a topic that was once considered taboo. This collection opens a new dialogue on women's sexuality. Some stories are short, some are more extensive, many are very beautifully written. The fantasies vary from the mild to the provocative. The stories are written by women, for women, and provides an important and riveting glimpse into women's sexual thoughts.
