Download Les Monologues du vagin (Denoël & d'ailleurs) (French by Eve Ensler,Lili Sztajn PDF

By Eve Ensler,Lili Sztajn

J’ai décidé de faire parler des femmes, de les faire parler de leur vagin, de faire des interviews de vagins…, et c’est devenu ces Monologues… Au début, ces femmes étaient un peu timides, elles avaient du mal à parler. Mais une fois lancées, on ne pouvait plus les arrêter. Les femmes adorent parler de leur vagin.

Depuis sa parution aux États-Unis en 1998, Les Monologues du vagin a déclenché un véritable phénomène culturel : rarement pièce de théâtre charisma été jouée tant de fois, en tant de lieux différents, devant des publics si divers… Mais que sont donc ces Monologues dans lesquels toutes les femmes se reconnaissent ? Il s’agit ni plus ni moins de l. a. célébration touchante et drôle du dernier des tabous : celui de l. a. sexualité féminine. Malicieux et impertinent, tendre et subtil, le chef-d’œuvre d’Eve Ensler donne l. a. parole aux femmes, à leurs fantasmes et craintes les plus intimes. Qui lit ce texte ne regarde plus le corps d’une femme de los angeles même manière. Qui lit ce texte ne pense plus au sexe de l. a. même manière.

Download Historia medieval del sexo y del erotismo (Spanish Edition) by Ana Martos Rubio PDF

By Ana Martos Rubio

“Así pues, encontramos una obra imprescindible y accesible para curiosos de toda condición, a pesar de que se hace más conveniente como libro de consulta que de lectura, especialmente en los primeros capítulos.”
(Web Anika entre libros)

“Con un lenguaje sencillo y práctico l. a., autora nos habla de un tema tabú en l. a. Edad Media: el sexo. Aunque l. a. iglesia católica se empeñaba en tratar al sexo como algo impuro, vergonzoso y sucio, lo cierto es que, realmente, l. a. época medieval no fue tan puritana como siempre habíamos creído.”
(Web Literariamente hablando)

Contra l. a. creencia generalizada, l. a. Edad Media fue un periodo en donde el goce sexual fue considerado una prioridad médica y se escribieron numerosos tratados sobre erotismo.

Persiste l. a. suggestion de que los angeles Edad Media fue una época oscura y puritana, pero lejos de esa suggestion, el Medievo fue una época compleja en los angeles que se mezclaba el temor al pecado carnal con un erotismo exacerbado fruto de las teorías médicas en boga. Historia medieval del sexo y del erotismo nos lleva a recorrer esta etapa compleja y de teorías contradictorias, en los angeles que pronto surgirán discusiones sobre l. a. procreación, l. a. lujuria y l. a. sexualidad que quedaron plasmados en textos como el Codex Vidobonensis, el Canon de Avicena, o el De Coitu. Estos textos mostrarán l. a. clara influencia de los angeles medicina griega sobre l. a. medicina medieval y el asombro que sentían los médicos medievales por cuestiones tan cotidianas como l. a. menstruación o el deseo sexual.

El libro de Ana Martos, no obstante, no es sólo un tratado sobre medicina y sexualidad medieval, sino que acompañan l. a. obra una serie de relatos sobre confabulaciones políticas e historias de amor entre reyes y reinas sin las que el tema critical sería inexplicable. También debe hacer una pequeña incursión en las teorías filosóficas, teológicas y científicas, y en las creaciones literarias, que determinaron l. a. sexualidad y el amor, carnal o platónico, de los angeles época. Para los médicos griegos, el esperma femenino participaba también en l. a. procreación por lo que cualquier técnica destinada a propiciar su secreción y el orgasmo femenino period considerada dentro de los angeles moralidad cristiana, desde ese momento proliferan los libros y manuales sobre erotismo, existía sin embargo, una corriente inspirada en Aristóteles que sostenía que los angeles mujer period mero receptáculo y su placer, por tanto, innecesario. El triunfo de esta corriente llevará asociado l. a. condena religiosa del orgasmo femenino y el sometimiento sexual que ha durado hasta hace bien poco.

Razones para comprar los angeles obra:

- los angeles obra nos muestra el origen sobre más de un tabú sexual que ha llegado a nuestros días con el fin de explicar los angeles falta de fundamento de dichos prejuicios.

- Mezcla dos historias curiosas y asombrosas que son fundamentales para comprender al ser humano: l. a. historia del erotismo y l. a. historia de l. a. medicina.

- l. a. Edad Media dio origen a numerosas formas de amor que se repiten, con sutiles variaciones en los clichés de películas y novelas contemporáneas.

- El libro tiene numerosas imágenes que ilustran el contenido del texto y una bibliografía para quien quiera profundizar en el tema.

Una obra que mezcla l. a. historia de l. a. medicina y l. a. del erotismo, pero también nos mostrará los tópicos que han llegado hasta nuestros días como los angeles relación entre masturbación y ceguera, los desperfectos que causa l. a. mujer cuando menstrua o los sofocos y desmayos del mal de amores decimonónico.
