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.

Give me some love.
