    1. Okay, so it's time to stop referring to my seven-year-old daughter's genitals as her "girl bits." Honestly, this might take a bit of an anatomy review for me--I'm pretty sure there's something called a vulva down there with everything else, but as to its locationI am completely on board with much of what McFadden claims should be part of parenting a daughter into healthy adulthood, emotional health and sexual health included. I'm going to start speaking with anatomical accuracy, I have always tr [...]


    2. McFadden, a psychoanalyst and a columnist for The Huffington Post, has summarized the data she's gathered from three of the questionnaires on her website, "womensrealities". The three questionnaires were selected by participants based on their interest: Menstruation, masturbation and mother/daughter relationships. The fact that this website exists is wonderful-a forum for safely disclosing our most private experiences--but also kind of troubling--why is it so hard to share those experiences with [...]


    3. Not wanting to make the mistakes of my mother (and her mother before her) I saw this book on the library shelf and decided it's never too late to learn a thing or two! I wasn't raised to think that sex was something I was entitled to.at is good sexd that maybe my mother's attitudes about this subject have trickled through my veins and have tainted my own experiences as well as formulating ideas in my daughter (she is now 21!)So I read the bookI did have a small conversation with said daughter an [...]


    4. [I wrote a more detailed review at my feminist parenting & books blog First the Egg.]In some ways, this book is awesome: it's a matter-of-fact, body-positive, non-prudish, empathetic plea to mothers to reach out to their daughters about sexuality. The author asks mothers to communicate openly, stop pretending they're not sexual beings themselves, think about their own values and experience, respect their own and their daughters' individuality, and refuse to play along with the misogyny that' [...]


    5. hoooha! this book is blowing my mind. prior to starting this book, i thought of myself as pretty proactive in regards to the climate and conversations i have w/ our daughter about her body and sexuality. this book is DEEP. if you blush easily it's probably even more important to read if you have daughters. prepare to think about mommy issues (meaning my own), and all the things that make up sexuality for women. here's a quote:"over time the unintentionally shaming messages we mothers share with [...]


    6. I liked the central message of this book - that it is important to not have "The Talk" with your daughter, but to make brief, subtle references to issues about sex and body image throughout her upbringing. But the way that this message was delivered made it difficult for me to connect. The book consists of stories taken from women in therapy, and each little vignette was murmuring in the background: don't let this happen to you. In short, hearing about how countless of women have screwed up thei [...]


    7. This would have been a far more interesting book if it just reproduced the questionnaires the author occasionally quotes from. Or it would have been a nice article highlighting ways that mother's attitudes towards sex and body image have a great influence on daughters. I would imagine any daughter already knows that their self esteem originates mostly from their relationship with their mother though maybe not in a scholarly way as laid out in this book in nearly 200 pages. Maybe someone who is n [...]


    8. While I really wanted to like this book, and was excited to find that its focus areas were guided by those which hundreds of questionnaire respondents found most compelling, I find myself flipping back through having finished it for "insights" that could not be related as aphorisms. I'm afraid that the women who pick this up -with is bright pink cover, provocative title and bra image- are likely sex-positive feminists who are already talking openly with their mothers and/or daughters.


    9. This book presented ideas and conversations that I have never had with even one other person, let alone my mother or daughter. After reading this book, I understand some of those reasons and how to change that now. Many helpful reviews, especially one who mentioned embracing the ideas presented would be good for us as a society to embrace; ideas as how to approach theses topics (menstruation, masturbation, sexuality) with each other throughout our varied generations.


    10. I mostly skimmed this book. The gist of the author's message is that women need to speak openly to their daughters about their sexuality, sexual health, and sex in general. A lot of the book seemed repetitive and I feel like the material could be easily compressed into a shorter article for the same effect. Interesting though


    11. Such a powerful open letter to women. Applies to moms, people who want to be moms, future moms, and those who have been mothered. All females apply. This book has a mission, and the author successfully sold me on her mission.


    12. Very interesting. It was a compelling combination of personal narrative from online survey respondents, academic analysis and straightforward advice for what mothers (and women in general) can do to promote healthy sexual identities.


    13. I would recommend this book to mothers struggling to make a connection with their daughters and daughters trying to more clearly understand their mothers.


    14. Good for the topic talks about how we as women are affected and affect by those around us at a young age particularly as we go thru adolescence
