Rough. How Violence Has Found its Way into the Bedroom and What We Can Do About it

By Rachel Thompson

Published Aug 2021

 

A bad sexual experience

A grey area

Not rape but…

A violation

 

From stealthing to non-consensual choking, our culture is only starting to recognise the sexual violations that take place in our bedrooms and beyond, sometimes at the hands of people we know, trust, or even love.

Rough explores the narratives of sexual violence that aren’t talked about, the systems of oppression that manifest in our sexual culture and how white supremacy, transphobia, biphobia, homophobia, fatphobia, ableism and misogyny are driving forces behind sexual violence.

Through powerful testimony from 50 women and non-binary people, Rachel Thompson brings together an intersectional, sex-positive and kink-positive work that shows us how we can change our sexual culture for good.
