Drawing both from the African continent and the global diaspora, Nana’s revelatory debut book uniquely amplifies individual women’s voices, as they speak of their diverse experiences of sex, sexualities and relationships.
In conversation for this virtual event, Nana will share some of the stories from her collection, recalling the journeys these women have travelled in order to own their sexualities. From finding queer community in Egypt to living a polyamorous life in Senegal to understanding the intersectionality of religion and pleasure in Cameroon to choosing to leave relationships that no longer serve them, these narratives are as individual and illuminating as the women who share them.
Fascinating and entertaining, this event provides a deep insight into women's quest for freedom, highlights the complex tapestry of African women's sexuality, and bestows upon all women inspirational examples to live a truly liberated life.

‘A captivating diasporic work of sensual geographies. Teeming with freedom and agency. Utterly triumphant’ Irenosen Okojie
‘A beautiful, delicate and sometimes brutal exploration of African Womanhood and sexuality, honest and moving. A vital treasure’ Bolu Babalola
