Three Women Desire as we ve never seen it before a riveting true story about the sex lives of three real American women, based on nearly a decade of reporting.It thrills us and torments us It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it s all we live for Yet we almost never speak of it And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored until now Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year.We begin in suburban Indiana with Lina, a homemaker and mother of two whose marriage, after a decade, has lost its passion She passes her days cooking and cleaning for a man who refuses to kiss her on the mouth, protesting that the sensation offends him To Lina s horror, even her marriage counselor says her husband s position is valid Starved for affection, Lina battles daily panic attacks When she reconnects with an old flame through social media, she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all consuming.In North Dakota we meet Maggie, a seventeen year old high school student who finds a confidant in her handsome, married English teacher By Maggie s account, supportive nightly texts and phone calls evolve into a clandestine physical relationship, and he promises that they ll skip school on her eighteenth birthday and make love all day Instead, he breaks up with her on the morning he turns thirty A few years later, Maggie has no degree, no career, and no dreams to live for When she learns that this man has been named North Dakota s Teacher of the Year, she steps forward with her story, turning their quiet community upside down.Finally, in an exclusive enclave of the Northeast, we meet Sloane a gorgeous, successful, and refined restaurant owner who is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women He picks out partners for her alone or for a threesome, and she ensures that everyone s needs are satisfied For years, Sloane has been asking herself where her husband s desire ends and hers begins One day, they invite a new man into their bed but he brings a secret with him that will finally force Sloane to confront the uneven power dynamics that fuel their lifestyle.Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women and one remarkable writer whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.

    This is quite a perplexing book as I m not sure what Taddeo s intentions were She takes three American women and tells their stories of failed love, disappointing marriages, unmet or unfulfilled sexual and emotional needs In some ways the stories are different and, almost deliberately echo themes covered in recent fiction Lina, in a sexless marriage, falls into an affair with her high school boyfriend Maggie is groomed into a sexual relationship with her high school teacher Sloane fin This is quite a perplexing book as I m not sure what Taddeo s intentions were She takes three American women and tells their stories of failed love, disappointing marriages, unmet or unfulfilled sexual and emotional needs In some ways the stories are different and, almost deliberately echo themes covered in recent fiction Lina, in a sexless marriage, falls into an affair with her high school boyfriend Maggie is groomed into a sexual relationship with her high school teacher Sloane finds herself introduced to open marriage built around a m nage theme, and recognises herself as a submissive after reading Fifty Shades of Grey And yet, all three have commonalities all three women are essentially unfulfilled all are, to greater or lesser extents, exploited by men Lina and Maggie are desperately pleading for love from married men who call them up when they choose Sloane has a troubled history of anorexia bulimia and despite her seeming assurance, traces early examples ...
