Book Review – Yelling in Pasties – The Wet Coast Confessions of an Anxious Slut

Day 8, Post 8 – This review has been way too long in the making. I was supposed to write this a long time ago, but life and depression got in the way. I am sorry for that, as this book deserved so much more from me, especially with how much I enjoyed it. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Along with writing, I also love to read. That is why I jumped at the chance to read and review Yelling in Pasties – The Wet Coast Confessions of an Anxious Slut by Kat Stark. I have to say, I found the book fascinating and difficult to put down. Yelling in Pasties is a collection of essays that Kat wrote and compiled during the first three years of their adventure into ethical non-monogamy with their husband Flick. The book covers Kat’s experiences, as well as giving a little background of when they were younger.

One thing I loved about the book was the glossary of terms in the beginning. A lot of the terms and words were familiar, but some were new to me. One word that stuck out to me was compersion – The feeling of happiness for your partner when they experience love and pleasure with others.

While reading, I could definitely relate to online dating woes and the “quick connect/disconnect that happens.” I also felt like we had a similar writing style. I have been told that my writing makes people feel like they are there with me in the moment, and I can definitely say the same about Kat’s writing.

While I don’t ever see myself able to delve into ethical non-monogamy, I find other’s stories fascinating. Kat’s journey is no exception. Their writing is real, and I like real.

You can find Kat on Twitter and On the Wet Coast blog and podcast. You can buy their book on Amazon in Kindle, Audiobook, and Paperback.
