The Hotbed Collective land book deal with Square Peg

Square Peg is publishing a book, More Orgasms Please, from the writers behind “The Hotbed Collective”.

Rowan Yapp, editorial director at the Vintage imprint, bought world rights directly from the podcast creators Lisa Williams and Anniki Sommerville. Square Peg will publish More Orgasms Please in hardback on 4th July 2019.

“The Hotbed Collective” is devoted to “sexual adventure”, as described on its website, and includes a blog as well as podcast featuring “a platform to doctors, therapists, bloggers, politicians and celebrities to talk honestly about female pleasure in all its forms,” Viking said.

Yapp said: "The Hotbed is everything I want in a podcast – it is funny and frank, enlightening and empowering. Lisa and Anniki have brilliantly captured that same spirit on the page. I see this book as like ‘Couch to 5k’... for orgasms.”

The Hotbed Collective said: “We started The Hotbed podcast to talk about everyday... the kind of sex that doesn’t happen every day... and were amazed by the number of listeners who got in touch to say they experience the same obstacles to pleasure as we did.

"We are thrilled to be working with Square Peg on More Orgasms Please, and to have the chance to combine the latest research into female pleasure with our personal stories and zero-effort tips – with the odd detour into angry feminism – to help close the pleasure gap, one orgasm at a time.”
