When Sex Is a War
by Nola Weber
24p, b&w, 5.5"x8.5"
Weber writes thoughtfully and movingly about coming-of-age and living with vulvar vestibulitis and vaginismus, two conditions which make vaginal penetration painful and near impossible. When Sex Is a War moves through Weber's uncharted waters: grappling with the disbelief of their friends, lovers, family, and often their own self, struggling to find medical information and assistance, mapping their own queer and feminist sexuality and searching for support. Beautifully illustrated and beautifully written - a fantastic, powerful zine. -EF
