Dirty Bits for Girls 01 Nov 2006
So who did it for you? Was it DH Lawrence or perhaps Anais Nin? India Knight's new book, The Dirty Bits – For Girls is an anthology of the naughty bits of novels girls loved to devour in the seventies and early eighties, when India herself was at an all-girls boarding school.

So how educational were these ‘dirty bits’ for the girls who read them and what effect did they have on young impressionable minds? Jenni and India are joined by Psychosexual Consultant, Judi Keshet-Orr.

'The Dirty Bits – For Girls' edited by India Knight is published by Virago, ISBN:13:978-1-84408-169-1.
