Issue 71 / Summer 2019
First times, last times, and everything in between
In Creative Nonfiction #71: “Let’s Talk about Sex,” writers invite us to share some of their most intimate moments—first times, last times, and everything in between. By turns joyous, hopeful, playful, wistful, and sometimes even uncomfortable, the stories in this issue expand our understanding of how—and why—people (and houseflies and sea urchins) “do it.”
Plus: five tips for great sex (writing); the eroticism of essaying; the art of the long sentence; tiny truths; and more.
