Natasha Ria El-Scari

Natasha Ria El-Scari is long known for being an acclaimed local poet, writer, feminist, and educator but in this offering, her third book, she takes a sharp turn to lean into not only non-fiction but also motherhood. Mama Sutra is an opening to over 15 years of conversation about lovemaking that she has had with her son. The focus: being present with the woman and not focused specifically on the male orgasm. It includes advice about how to prepare the body and personal space for lovemaking, communication and contemplation to liberate long standing taboos within the African American community and beyond.

This book is the perfect gift for a young man entering young adulthood, for single men who wants to make sure he is ready for lovemaking or a married man that needs a refresher course. Natasha gives not only practical advice but the real “mother wit” wisdom of what many women are looking for in a lover from a black feminist perspective. Mama Sutra is long overdue, it provides an opening for families and lovers to have conversations that have never occurred but that we all desperately need to be having with our sons and women with their lovers. Mama Sutra is just in time for the holidays, semester breaks and the rest of their lives. Don’t delay and purchase today from the writer, or purchase it on amazon here.
