Woman, mother, lover – Motherhood and Sexuality

cimlapWoman, mother, lover – Motherhood and Sex. My book is a Foucauldian analysis on the norms and beliefs surrounding the mother as a sexual object and on womanhood in our Western culture. I am writing about the medicalization of female sexuality, the Western cultural tradition and sex discourse especially in the intersection of the de- or asexualized myth of motherhood, the controversies on different female roles, the deep inner pain and difficulties being a girl, a young woman.

This book is somewhere between social science and literature but also very personal and contains many personal interviews of mothers and fathers as well as my own personal stories from my childhood. I am writing a serious social and cultural analysis that is approachable by laypeople.

The book is published in Hungarian, in approximately 3000 copies.
