About this deal

Just as Bare Reality: 100 women, their breasts, their stories presented the un-airbrushed truth about breasts for women, Manhood: The Bare Reality shows us the spectrum of 'normal', revealing men's penises and bodies in all their diversity and glory, dispelling body image anxiety and myths. Laura and the creation of 'Womanhood' were the subject of a documentary for Channel 4, '100 Vaginas', which received 5 star reviews and has been broadcast around the world. From Book 1: 100 women bravely share un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside honest, courageous, powerful and humorous stories about their breasts and their lives.

Laura Dodsworth is an author, journalist, photographer and commentator and has been described as a ‘latter-day punchy Cassandra’ and a ‘Slayer of Taboos’. For the first time, 100 brave and beautiful women reveal their bodies and stories on their own terms, talking about how they feel about pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause, gender, sexuality and simply being a woman.

Airbrushed breasts, belonging to models and actresses, not only create an unflattering comparison but present an unobtainable ideal. I'm now reading the sequel, 'Manhood' which I thought I'd maybe learn less from as it was my own gender talking but it's proving quite the opposite.When I first saw Laura Dodsworth's project, Bare Reality - which shares 100 unretouched, anonymous pictures of real women's breasts - I was completely fascinated. Ich schau das Buch mit meiner 12-Jährigen Tochter an, sie fand es erst sehr seltsam, aber nun hat sie Spaß dran und vielleicht schafft es etwas Freiheit im Vergleich zu Germanys next top Model.

This touching, inspirational book cuts through the sexual objectification of breasts and encapsulates how unique, yet similar, we all are. I have always been fascinated by the dichotomy between women’s personal lives and how they are depicted by the media; between how we feel about breasts privately and how they are presented for public consumption. Breasts are catalysts for discussing intimate aspects of women’s lives, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing. I feel tender about my own experience as a woman and full of admiration and warmth for female experience.At the same time, in Western culture they are considered a woman’s single most significant sexual attribute. There has been so much public debate about breasts recently, from Free the Nipple to No More Page 3, from breastfeeding selfies on Facebook to Rihanna on the red carpet.

Each story provides a beautifully tender insight into the diversity of our emotions about our breasts throughout life's stages and experiences.

We meet, young, old, deformed, trans and without a doubt 100 of the most beautiful women I have read about. From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. The Green Transition Weekly analysis of the shift to a new economy from the New Statesman's Spotlight on Policy team. I love how you learn each woman's story through her breasts her development, her response to the culture around her, illness, her sexuality, her children.

She is the author of the two instant Sunday Times Bestsellers, 'Free Your Mind: The new world of manipulation and how to resist it' (2023) and 'A State of Fear: How the UK government weaponised fear during the Covid-19 pandemic’ (2021). I love that the subjects' own words and stories are edited minimally, only for flow, and allowed to come through in each woman's voice.

women bravely share un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside honest, courageous, powerful and humorous stories about their breasts and their lives. I grew up believing my breasts were objects that should be “perfect” and desirable for men, and that they fell a long way short.
