Nonfiction Book Group discusses Getting Off: One Woman’s Journey Through Sex and Porn Addiction
Led (virtually!) by Greenlight bookseller Geo, our nonfiction book group meets monthly to read and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For June, the group discusses Erica Garza’s memoir Getting Off. A fixation on porn and orgasm, strings of failed relationships and serial hook-ups with strangers, inevitable blackouts to blunt the shame—these are not things we often hear women share publicly, and not with the candor, eloquence, and introspection Erica Garza brings to Getting Off. In these remarkable pages, Garza draws an evocative, studied portrait of the anxiety that fuels her obsessions, as well as the exhilaration and hope she begins to feel when she suspects she might be free of them.
