Sex and Sensibility: Ten Women Examine the Lunacy of Modern Love...in 200 Cartoons

3.59 of 5 stars 3.59  ·  rating details  ·  17 ratings  ·  4 reviews
Sex and Sensibility is a book of 150 cartoons, all by female cartoonists, that captures the zeitgeist of sex and love today. Many of these selections would never have been published ten years ago due to their being too risque or tackling subject matter that hadn't been invented yet, like sex through texting. These women offer snapshots of ourselves in love and in bed.

For myself only, this book was too much of a rehash of feminist ideology and expression rather than new thought. In between the cartoons were page-long-plus essays by the cartoonists on a number of issues. I either couldn't relate to some of the material -- which is fine because women are not the same -- or most felt too familiar, even boring. I'd like something that elevates the dialogue beyond ... And I'm not sure this would appeal to those who NEED it, either.

The back cover is a cartoon of "The MRI of Love."

'Nuff said.
