Andrea Dworkin, once called "Feminism's Malcolm X," has been worshipped, reviled, criticized, and analyzed-but never ignored. The power of her writing, the passion of her ideals, and the ferocity of her intellect have spurred the arguments and activism of two generations of feminists. Now the book that she's best known for-in which she provoked the argument that ultimately split apart the feminist movement-is being reissued for the young women and men of the twenty-first century. Intercourse enraged as many readers as it inspired when it was first published in 1987. In it, Dworkin argues that in a male supremacist society, sex between men and women constitutes a central part of women's subordination to men. (This argument was quickly-and falsely-simplified to "all sex is rape" in the public arena, adding fire to Dworkin's already radical persona.) In her introduction to this twentieth-anniversary edition of Intercourse, Ariel Levy, the author of Female Chauvinist Pigs, discusses the circumstances of Dworkin's untimely death in the spring of 2005, and the enormous impact of her life and work. Dworkin's argument, she points out, is the stickiest question of feminism: Can a woman fight the power when he shares her bed?… (més)

read a lot of Dworkin back in the '80s. I even went to see her give a speech. I often haven't agreed with her on many issues, and possibly -- like many -- her complete refusal to compromise or be remotely flexible on anything (hence, the "militant feminist" label) made it harder to be sympathetic, not to mention the questions surrounding some of her personal history claims. But one can't deny she was a powerful, passionate speaker/writer, nor the fact that she made possibly the biggest impact in the greater feminist movement during the 1980s, so while this isn't my favorite text, I do think she's generally worth reading and engaging. I like to be challenged to think... ( )

Dworkin writes with intense passion and surgical precision. Both as a work of feminism and literary criticism Intercourse hits hard. ( )

Hold Up!!! Did I put a Dworkin book on my list and give it 4 stars?!?!?!This book makes me seethe with rage, both in agreement at times and in overwhelmingly violent disagreement at others. The fact remains, this book is written so well that it deserves to be on every writer's list. Some day, I hope to pen a text with as much clarity and creativity as Intercourse. ( )

Dworkin examines the social perception and construction of intercourse, asking much of the questions that need to be asked. She goes on to ask questions about intercourse and sex in general, posits different reasons, and because of this (and likely her anti-porn stance) she is perceived as "anti-sex." I didn't find a specific conclusion in the book, but rather took it as a commentary on the act. She never says "refuse to have it" anywhere, or at least I missed it if she did; at points she even discusses different ways intercourse can be conceived and made less male-supremacist, without totally ignoring the societal factors in favor of individualistic ideals. Considering US feminism basically is now a western worship of individualism, it's still incredibly relevant. It changed my entire perspective on intercourse and actually improved the sex I have, which is not what I expected it to do considering the things most will say about it. I highly recommend this book for all women, but especially for those who have sex and/or intercourse with men. ( )
