"This collection of 17 essays from survivors of sexual abuse in childhood or young adulthood points to an optimistic endpoint for the "journey to a happy and healthy sexuality" (in the words of one contributor), making it a powerful resource for those on the path to recovery who need to connect with models of success."
"The contributors don't merely offer different stories and perspectives, but approach the project from different stages of the healing process, which makes the work accessible to more people...Making Out Like a Virgin effectively shares the personal stories of sexual abuse survivors in various stages of the healing process who have reclaimed their sexual identities."
