"Joani Blank (July 4, 1937 – August 6, 2016) was an American sex educator, entrepreneur, author, videographer, cohousing enthusiast, philanthropist, and inventor in the field of sexuality. She used publishing, her sex store, and other endeavors to promote sex-positive feminism....Blank collaborated with photographer Honey Lee Cottrell on I Am My Lover, and Down There Press published it in 1978. In this book, she paired Cottrell's photographs of individual women with the subject's written reflections on masturbation and on learning to give themselves pleasure. It joined Our Bodies, Ourselves (1971) and Betty Dodson's Liberating Masturbation: A Meditation on Self Love[9] (1974) as second wave feminist books aiming to educate women about their bodies and empower them to have a positive sexual life." - Wikipedia

"After 19 years Joani Blank has issued a new edition of I Am My Lover. This new edition contains new photography rather than the original edition's photographs (the plates for those were lost) and is in this respect an entirely new book. However, it still revisits the terrain originally addressed in the original I Am My Lover." -
