4 Women Just Wrote A Book Of 'Erotica' For Feminists & It's Making Our Day

Katy Harrington

Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor and Carrie Wittmer are satirists and comedy writers whose work has been featured in The New Yorker and McSweeney's. They believe that women of the #TimesUp and #MeToo generation need a new type of erotica to get them all hot and bothered so they set about writing a wickedly funny satirical book that "turns the tables on clichéd erotica". In New Erotica for Feminists, plumbers are just plumbers. A man putting the recycling out is a major turn-on, as is getting 14 solid hours of uninterrupted sleep. It's a place where all your feminist fantasies come true.

"Excuse me," I finally say to the man whose legs are open to an impressive 180-degree angle on the short park bench. "Can you move over a bit?"

"Wow," he says, horrified, snapping his legs shut with a THWAP. "What a reasonable request! I am so sorry I was dominating a shared space with my privileged body."

I walk into my office building, and a sharply dressed man walks in behind me. Feeling his eyes on me, I press the lift button. It lights up.

The man doesn’t press it again, just to make sure.

He calls me into his office and closes the door ... to promote me. He promotes me again and again. I am wild with ecstasy.
