Thank you Gemma!…

It is one of the most natural things in the world, but so many of us – myself included – find it so difficult to talk about. It can be so hard to bring up to your partner what you like, what you don’t like, and what you expect from intimate experiences.
The poems within Enigma by Chriselda Barretto takes you through so many different perspectives on the human sexual experience, many of which you will relate with and others that you will contemplate on. The poems are not smutty, but rather more beautiful, which mirrors the beauty in the connection between two people. The poems kind of showed me that there is no real need to feel so awkward about sex, it is a beautiful thing that can inspire some really beautiful poetry.
This is not Fifty Shades of Grey, it is so much more subtle and relatable. Wonderful prose and an amazing concept. I really admire Chriselda Barretto for encouraging people to be more open about sex.
