Loose Girl: a memoir of promiscuity by Kerry Cohen
Kerry grew up in a permissive home, and her parents divorced when she was still in primary school. As she struggled to find a place she belonged, she found sex substituted for love and affection. This book details her story towards a true relationship and shows the various thought processes such a journey entailed.
Her honesty in the book is compelling, and she admits the bad decisions and mistakes she made, but she was one of many searching for herself in this way. I found a lot of feelings I could relate to, that I also experienced as a teen and young adult and I admire her for analyzing these and perhaps helping others recognize issues they are still dealing with.
