As women, we all have a story within us about a sexual experience that was unforgettable.Perhaps it was incredible, earth shattering, life-changing, and wonderful. Perhaps it wasn’t romantic or pleasurable, but awkward, painful or forced upon us.

Many of us have kept our experiences secret because, by exposing our stories, we expose ourselves and our feelings around sex.

In My First Time, Southern African women have shared their stories about their significant first time experiences of sex and sexuality.

This is a collection of honest, powerful, and brave accounts. Some joyful, others funny and some heartbreaking, but all of them important for women, and hopefully men, to read.

The collection includes stories such as: My first orgasm, My first abortion, My first miscarriage, My first kiss with a woman, My first memory of being aroused,The first time I had to deal with rape and my first post-divorce sex.

It also features stories from public figures such as Dorothy Black, Sarah Britten, Karabo Kgoleng, Robyn Kriel, and Lindy Mtongana.

This is the perfect book for you to read to reflect on your own first times. This is the perfect book to share with your mother, siblings, and friends.

The book is still due for printing but this is a book that Women24 will definitely review, the launch date will be on:
