In the updated second edition of Whipping Girl, Julia Serano, a transsexual woman whose supremely intelligent writing reflects her background as a lesbian transgender activist and professional biologist, shares her powerful experiences and observations—both pre- and post-transition—to reveal the ways in which fear, suspicion, and dismissiveness toward femininity shape our societal attitudes toward trans women, as well as gender and sexuality as a whole. Serano's well-honed arguments and reputation as a thought-leader stem from her ability to bridge the gap between the often-disparate biological and social perspectives on gender. In this provocative manifesto, she exposes how deep-rooted the cultural belief is that femininity is frivolous, weak, and passive, and how this “feminine” weakness exists only to attract and appease male desire. In addition to debunking popular misconceptions about transsexuality, Serano makes the case that today's feminists and transgender activists must work to embrace and empower femininity—in all of its wondrous forms.

Through an irresistible brush with the supernatural, a lonely young girl enters into an incredible odyssey—a mystical double life—not merely the fantasy or escape she expects, but a strange, wonderful and enchanting means by which she fulfils her most heartfelt desires for romance, friendship and popularity. She gradually learns this bounty comes at a price. The creature staging these incidental exoduses into the unknown appears to know more about her than she knows about herself. In time, far darker desires propel her into a more dangerous world where psychedelic orgies of violence and eroticism are the norm. Yet her lurid adventure is merely a diversion, the catalyst to a far more terrifying fate that imperils not only herself, but all of mankind. Whipping Girl strives to elevate the much-maligned genre of erotica, to make of it an arena of both insight and imagination, and also serves as a testament of the widely misunderstood and very much stereotyped phenomenon of sadomasochism—an uncommon premise which has proven surprisingly fertile ground for drama and suspense. It employs the essential techniques of storytelling that readers not merely expect but demand from any genre. to enhance this rich adventure, Whipping Girl is accompanied by photorealistic artwork and soundtrack, as well as a précis of the novel, viewable at www.whippinggirlnovel.com. This as well should serve as proof that its author has spared no effort to seduce his prospective readers with a unique and veritable saga incorporating drama, romance, mystery, tragedy and dark humor.

Using the methodologies and insights of queer theory, narrative theory and analytic philosophy, Sexual Deceit helps us to understand the issues of passing and to evaluate it from a moral point of view. Noting the importance of time and place in discussing this issue, Kelby Harrison combines the insights, key concepts, and important arguments in both traditional philosophy and queer theory in developing an ethical theory called “Gayness as Practical Identity.”

Drawing on interviews with a breadth of different showgirls, from shows in Paris, Las Vegas, Berlin, and Los Angeles, as well as her own artworks and those by other contemporary and historical artists, this book examines the experiences of showgirls and those who watch them, to challenge the narrowness of representations and discussions around what has been termed ‘sexualisation’ and ‘the gaze’. An account of the experience of being ‘looked at’, the book raises questions of how the showgirl is represented, the nature of the pleasure that she elicits and the suspicion that surrounds it, and what this means for feminism and the act of looking. An embodied articulation of a new politics of looking, Viewing Pleasure and Being a Showgirl engages with the idea (reinforced by feminist critique) that images of women are linked to selling and that women’s bodies have been commodified in capitalist culture, raising the question of whether this enables particular bodies – those of glamorous women on display – to become scapegoats for our deeper anxieties about consumerism.
