We Need to Talk About Sex will be published by Dialogue Books.
Ghanaian writer, and author of Sex Lives of African Women (2021), Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, is set for her new book publication in 2025. The book, like her first, is titled We Need to Talk About Sex, and will be published by Dialogue Books.
Sekyiamah’s upcoming book will tackle indigenous beliefs about sex in relation to contemporary woman and notions of sexuality.
A synopsis of We Need to Talk About Sex reads that, “We Need to Talk About Sex also excavates and reclaims traditional African sexual knowledge and practices in ways that can serve the contemporary African woman. Nana recounts conversations with women who hold responsibilities for organising traditional practices such as the “dipo puberty rites” in Ghana and the Sengas (traditional marriage counsellors) in Uganda.”
Sekyiamah commented that, “In many ways it represents Sankofa — an opportunity to explore indigenous African knowledge around sex and sexualities, and what lessons and practices these hold for our contemporary times.”
Sekyiamah is a writer and blogger from Ghana. She co-founded the feminist blog, Adventures from the Bedrooms of African Women.
