Making Out Like a Virgin: Sex, Desire & Intimacy After Sexual Trauma
October 2016 / Editors Catriona McHardy and Cathy Plourde
A unique and moving collection of personal nonfiction essays that detail how each writer has moved beyond mere survival of sexual trauma to unapologetically discover a sexually and emotionally thriving life.
Shortlisted in the top ten for 2017 FOREWORD Indie’s Best Book (Self Help), Animal Mineral couldn’t be prouder of Portlyn Media’s inaugural book. Unfortunately, it’s a book that only grows more relevant with each #MeToo, with each new headline, and, perhaps more importantly, for all of those who have suffered trauma, regardless of whether or not they will have a day of justice and reckoning.
