To celebrate the paperback release of her #1 New York Times bestselling book Three Women, author and journalist Lisa Taddeo discusses the book’s impact on how we talk about female sexual desire one year later, updates on the women whose stories were featured, and how the global pandemic is impacting the sex lives of women. She will be in conversation with Jennifer Weiner, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of seventeen books and contributor to the New York Times Opinion section, whose newest book is Big Summer.

From increased anxiety decreasing libido to having a “Covid sex buddy” to government regulations on people gathering indoors as lockdowns lift, the public health concerns shifting dynamics around women’s sex lives into the future are manifold.

Based on nearly a decade of reporting, Three Women captured the true story about the sex lives of three real American women. Lina: a suburban homemaker and mother of two whose marriage has lost its passion. Maggie: a 17-year-old high school student in North Dakota who allegedly has a clandestine physical relationship with her married teacher; the ensuing criminal trial turns their quiet community upside down. Sloane: a gorgeous, successful restaurant owner in an exclusive enclave of the Northeast who is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women. Collectively, their experiences remind us that we are not alone.
