A new contemporary romantic comedy from the author of "The Runaway Princess." Sarah Hatfield hates everything about sex. Jacob Trent hates everything about commitment. So why is this unlikely twosome trying to have a baby? Certainly not for any of the normal reasons! Sarah's sudden attack of maternal instincts is highly suspect -- while Jake is more engrossed in the mechanics of baby-making than the result. But somewhere amid their varied and often skewed reasoning, they manage to pull off the miracle of making a baby and find a love neither had anticipated or even wanted. The bad news is that their once-strong friendship is now reduced to tattered disarray. We tag along on a disastrous honeymoon for one, then quickly move on to the shopping trip from hell in search of a wedding gown. Just a minute . . . can that sequence of events be correct? And even more confusing . . . who the heck is the bride? Carol Schede was born, raised and has spent most of her life in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Making Out Like a Virgin: sex, desire & intimacy after sexual trauma (second edition) is a unique and moving collection of personal nonfiction essays that detail how each writer has moved beyond mere survival of sexual trauma to unapologetically discover a sexually and emotionally thriving life. Making Out Like a Virgin is not a collection of victim narratives, nor a healing workbook. Instead, this book is a bold new addition to stories told by survivors. The mission of these writers is not to recount their individual trauma but to detail what has helped them reclaim both body and sexual desire. "Making out like a virgin" serves as a metaphor, giving permission to sizzle and seize the moment. By telling their stories, these writers share their strengths and successes found somewhere between the big shifts and small intimate moments, inspiring others while furthering their own healing.

Most cultures tell the tale of a maiden who gives birth untouched by a man. Is this just a myth, or could virgin birth become the way we make babies in the future? In Like a Virgin, biologist Aarathi Prasad explores inconceivable ideas about conception, from the “Jesus Christ” lizard’s ability to self-reproduce (it walks on water, too) to the hunt for a real-life virgin mother among geneticists in the 1950s. Prasad then transports us to the maverick laboratories that today are inventing the equivalent of “non-sexual selection”, from egg-fertilizing computer chips to artificial wombs for men. This adventurous romp to the frontiers of reproductive science will forever change the way you think about sex and parenthood. Aarathi Prasad is a biologist and science writer. She has appeared on television and radio, including as host of the BBC documentary “The Quest for a Virgin Birth,” and written for publications such as Wired, New Scientist, and The Guardian. A single mother, she previously worked in research genetics at Imperial College, London. This is her first book.
