Ella Dawson LOVES Daddy!

ella blog copy

“Young is hyper aware of the seeming contradictions in her story, of being a submissive and a powerful independent artist, of being a mother and a sex worker, of being a feminist and the partner of a not always ideal man. She challenges why these identities are so often dismissed as incompatible at varying levels of her own comfort.” – Ella Dawson (Team Madison Literary Intern) reviews Daddy!

Mr. Thursday Loves Daddy!

“Young is keenly aware of the ideological tightrope she walks as a sub, participating in a world of gender-role extremes; as a pornstar, participating in a moneyed world of glamor and objectification; and finally, as a feminist, working in discrete communities of like-minded allies to expand the sexual agency of the disenfranchised. Her unbridled subjective nudity here should not be diminished as simply “brave.” Daddy is a take-no-prisoners assault on fantasy, both the patriarchal fantasy of the nuclear family and any ideologically prescriptive fantasy, including the feminist variety, of what female subjectivity “should be.” – Mr Thursday on Daddy

Tits and Sass Reads Daddy!

“Madison Young’s memoir Daddy tackles head-on the daddy issues sex workers are always accused of having. Young skillfully and responsibly presents her journey from a little girl who misses her daddy to an accomplished gallery owner, feminist erotic film producer, author, and “sex positive Tasmanian devil.” She begins by tackling the issue of consent: yours. “I cannot hear the consenting ‘yes’ seep from your lips,” she writes, “but by the simple turn of this page you will be physically consenting to this journey, this scene, between you and I.”” – Ecowhore for Tits and Sass

“Women who choose to read this book (as I highly suggest) need be forewarned: You are entering territory that will at time makes you uncomfortable. You will question your own constructions and understandings of love and how they came to be. You will tear down the life-long structures you have had around desire, both emotional and physical. What you once understand to be a solid ground of self-knowledge and truth will be questioned again and again as you delve deep into the psyche that is Madison Young. It is a beautiful place to be, filled with passion, love, lust and above all trust. ” – She Does the City.  Read more of this fabulous review on She Does the City HERE
