This brief but brilliant work, a woman's frank unveiling of her journey of sexual and self discovery, was an instant underground sensation when it was first published as a small booklet.
M. Christian, Author/Editor of Dirty Words and Guilty Pleasures hailed Unveiling Venus with these words: "Her writing sparkles, crackles and sizzles like no other; absolutely her characters are alive, living long in the mind after the book's been closed; her poetry sings like the finest nightingale. When I pick up something from Jamie Joy, I know I'm in for a special treat. Do yourself a favor and buy this book – I can guarantee that when you finish you won't be the same, you'll be better."
In nineteen works of poetry and prose, famed erotica author/editor Jamie Joy Gatto, whose work has appeared in Best Bisexual Erotica 1 & 2, Best SM Erotica, Unlimited Desires: an International Anthology of Bisexual Erotica, and other anthologies, explores themes of carnality, abandonment, body image, sexual attraction, codependency, healing and recovery.
Experience the beauty of pain, the high of one woman's sexual encounters, and the promise that she (and we) will grow and survive the challenges of being a woman – and more importantly, of being human. Supercharged with emotional impact, graphic sensual prose, and challenging subject matter, Unveiling Venus is an intense ride encompassing a life-long process.
