Katherine Angel
The Way Out of Bad Sex

Can desire survive in the age of consent? Or are we condemned to a life full of red lines and no-go zones that prevent flirtation and playfulness, but also genuine attachments? How complex does our view of sexual relationships need to be today to really understand them, without simplifying or confirming all the old stereotypes? Such are the questions that author Katherine Angel has addressed in her recent books. Her talk points at these subtle and difficult moments, all the while sounding a hopeful note. Maybe tomorrow sex will be good again.
