Images and Excerpts from my new book Want with Andi McLeish


Check out the beautiful photographs by Andi McLeish for each chapter of my new book Want: 8 Steps to Recovering Desire, Passion, and Pleasure After Sexual Assault (Mango 2019). The book is organized into my eight steps to recovery, including Survive, Feel, Rage, Forgive, Pleasure, Eat, Sex, and Love. Each one explores some aspect of healing from sexual assault and abuse and finding the courage to heal. Andi and I worked together to create images that would embody the mood of each step, and I’ve shared them with you here.

There is nothing explicit in the images or excerpts, though they are meant for adult eyes. See them in all their glory here:
