I'm embarrassed to say that — even as a person who considers herself to be knowledgeable on sex education — I knew little about vaginismus or vaginal dilators before reading this book. uk will use the information you provide on this form to be in touch with you and to provide updates and marketing. podobało mi się też, że główna bohaterka próbowała odnaleźć prawdziwą siebie i zaczęła być świadoma, czego pragnie.

Monique initially receives help from two unlikely sources, goody-two-shoes Sasha from church, and bad boy Reggie - neither turn out to be what they seem. As described in a note to readers, Monique’s story does much to raise awareness of vaginismus and directly confront toxic views about sex. This is about a teenager going through puberty and her emotional roller coaster as a pastor's daughter and family and friends influences. This is also the case for Sasha as well, who despite Monique’s initial judgement is actually pretty amazing.I found it utterly riveting and thoroughly entertaining and though Joya Goffney’s own experiences with vaginismus allow her to expertly and sensitively delve into such sensitive subject matter with gusto, she still manages to keep the plot lighthearted whilst bringing awareness to a condition that isn’t widely known about.

Given that Monique’s Daddy is a pastor at a Black Baptist church in the south, that’s quite some conflict, but church is where she gets to spend time with Dom, her “dream boy”, who also happens to be her “daddy’s protégé”. As a deconstructing former evangelical who grew up deep in purity culture, this was healing in a way I didn't know I needed. This is a powerful story about the journey towards loving yourself, told with heart, humour and a delicious love triangle. However, because they’re in love and will eventually get married, Monique figures there’s no need to wait. There was so much he taught her and so much you could tell she simple learned from being around him and Sasha.Tired of waiting her boyfriend breaks up with her, spurring Monique into discovering her inability to have sex is caused by a medical condition. Literally everything about Confessions of an Alleged Good Girl feels natural and I'm so happy about it. Additionally, I know that as a society we are much more open and transparent about topics previously considered scandalous or taboo. It was not until past page 30 that it became interesting and then fascinating, then essential reading.

She’s in a relationship with the love of her life, Dom, the church drummer and a guy her father loves and respects.

There's so many layers to Monique, you find out right away why she is so devastated by Dom breaking up with her. So, Monique resolves to “come up with some solutions” to get him back, beginning with booking an appointment to see if her lady parts are normal. Everyone expects her and her boyfriend, Dom, to do everything properly (read: no sex before marriage).Goffney's ( Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry ) sincere novel underscores conversations around sexual autonomy, purity culture, and internalized shame with earnestness and humor. I could relate to being raised by traditional parents and having their views on sex being passed on to you without you even realizing it. With a powerful subplot about Monique’s estranged sister, and a host of fabulous female characters, including the gynaecologist who states, “No woman should have to go without care.
