Overview

Are you ready to go on a journey with desire? Desire Lines is for any woman who wants to know more about who she is as a sexual being, and who longs to express this part of herself on her own terms. She does not want to simply reflect back the image of sexuality she has been shown by society. She is ready to find out her own sexual truths and to step into these - seeking out and following her own, unique desire lines. Through sharing stories of her own sexual journey, along with evocative erotica and reflective questions, Anna invites you to explore and create a map of your own desires. Bold, challenging and inspiring, Desire Lines contains graphic language and descriptions of sex and sexuality, including kink and BDSM, gender and body non-conformity, lust and love. Anna is willing to go to her edges when writing and courageously brings through themes and ideas that perhaps other writers would shy away from. She gives voice to those who may have been reluctant to share their own stories, and challenges the reader of Desire Lines to explore their own desires and get to know their sexual self. Nicola Humber, mentor to Unbound women, and author of UNBOUND Anna is a former sexual surrogate partner and wrote the Sex/Life column for DIVA Magazine for two years. Her published erotica includes short stories and a full-length novel. Frustrated by the limited and restrictive portrayals of women's sexuality in the mainstream media, she is driven to offer alternative perspectives. Desire Lines provides a unique and insightful way of looking at sexuality by exploring the themes of our desires, rather than focusing on specific fantasies. These themes (our personal desire lines) help to reveal who we are, what we need, and what we want, to thrive as sexual beings. This book was a co-creation with Lilith the untamed, intuitive and free aspect of every woman.

Anna is willing to go to her edges when writing and courageously brings through themes and ideas that perhaps other writers would shy away from. She gives voice to those who may have been reluctant to share their own stories, and challenges the reader of Desire Lines to explore their own desires and get to know their sexual self. Nicola Humber, mentor to Unbound women, and author of UNBOUND Desire Lines is a book I wish I'd had years ago. It's a brave, tender and honest exploration of what it means to be human, to have a range of feelings, curiosities and of course desires. It's for anyone who has ever felt they don't fit into what society has deemed acceptable in terms of what it's okay to want. It's a book that gives you permission to feel more deeply and vulnerably, and connect with and honour your true self and your desires. Tara Jackson, Holistic Health and Wellness Coach Desire Lines takes us deep into the world of desire and erotic possibility. Anna generously shares her rich life experiences and introduces us to aspects of conscious sexuality, kink and ethical non-monogamy. Powerful, honest and real, Anna captures varied expressions of desire with beautiful poetic language, weaving autobiography with myth, storytelling, poetry and poignant questions to the audience, giving us permission to explore our own desires just as bravely. Desire Lines is engaging and tender and an absolute pleasure to read! Eva Weaver Author, Sex and Intimacy Coach An articulate, explicit and creative exploration of desire from lived experience. Anna melds vulnerability and poise as she invites each reader to consider and witness their own needs and wants. It's an invitation to be curious and compassionate -- an explorer of the self -- releasing guilt or shame as part of the journey towards an understanding and liberation of our deeper being. Sara M. Desire Lines is a profound exploration of sexuality, desire, and pleasure. Anna combines autobiographical accounts, storytelling, and poetry in order to express what desire lines are, and what it feels like to follow them. Her life experience is broad and the way she shares herself is compelling, thought provoking, and above all, liberating. The world needs more writers like her, who give voice to multi-layered, diverse experiences of desire, in particular when it comes to expressing female sexuality in a non-misogynistic, empowering way. This is a courageous and fascinating book, which I fully recommend to others. Brida Seaver, hearthletters.com

This is a courageous and fascinating book, which I fully recommend to others. My 'takeaways' from reading Desire Lines included reflections on my own embodied, felt experiences of desire and acknowledgement of my strong appetite for pleasure; inspiration and creative stimulation both in terms of engaging with desire in fantasy and re-imagining the intimate story of my body and my sexuality; reassurance and comfort that there truly can be no 'one size fits all' approach to partnerships, to marriage, to love, and there is no shame in lack of conformity. We are free to make our own journeys, and to be transported and transformed in our own unique way. Brida Seaver, hearthletters.com
