Touch Me: Anthology

Touch: Sex, Sexuality and Sensuality

Compiled by Kim Lilian Windvogel & Tiffany Kagure Mugo, published by NB Publishers Kwela, this striking anthology focuses on sex as a vast, yet intertwined experience between people. The collection draws on the experiences of sex from people across genders, sexualities – even borders. Sometimes political, sometimes personal, and sometimes even problematic, Touch delves into the many ways in which sex features in our lives.
