Featured Speakers

Lucy-Anne Holmes & Ruth Elliot


There is beautiful sex, bored sex, auto-sexuality, crazy sex, tantric sex, sad sex and sex that is experienced as colours and melted toffee.

Lucy-Anne Holmes shares all these stories and more in a genuinely breathtakingly beautiful new anthology, collecting 51 women's testimonies on sex. We are giddy with delight and anticipation to welcome Lucy for a joyous discussion of the book with Ruth Eliot, founder of the Better Sex Workshops.

'A brilliant testament to those reclaiming their sexual power' - RUBY RARE

Women on Top of the World is a collection of 51 first person testimonies by 51 women from around the globe, from all ages and from all walks of life. Searingly honest, they reveal their innermost thoughts and feelings during sex to writer Lucy-Anne Holmes. The result is an incredible compendium of true disclosures that are funny and sad, shocking and tender.

Every experience is different, unique and fascinating. From 19-year-old Melodie in the UK to 32 year-old Wambui from Kenya and 74-year-old Lucy in New Zealand, we as readers are led down as many paths as there are ways to have sex. There are heterosexual women, gay women, bisexual women, queer women, monogamous women, polyamorous women, those who identify as non-binary and transgender women. What makes the book unique, and especially moving are the complimenting illustrations, commissioned for each piece.

A range of hugely talented, cutting-edge artists from all over the world - both male and female - have given their visual interpretations with rich and remarkable illustrations that convey the range of emotions contained within these intimate revelations. The result is a stunning, transportive book that will help quench the obvious thirst for narratives for women by women about their journeys of sexual self-discovery. We LOVED this book, and we think you will too - come find out more!
