From Publishers Weekly
The hugely popular erotica author Zane gets right to the point: This is a book about fucking. This is a book about love, she warns in the aggressively defensive introduction (Do not start protests at your local library to ban me from the shelves) to this collection of letters she has received from the lost and confused in need of sexual advice. The chapters in her first nonfiction book are grouped around such useful topics as virginity/young love, sexual addiction, oral sex, dissatisfied lovers/lack of sex drive and how to make love to a woman. Zane writes with grim humor and uses explicit, slangy language that obviously resonates with her audience of younger, sexually active women. She encourages wild, no-holes-barred sex, but presents hot, monogamous unions as her goal. Dump him and find a man to respect you is her response to the women who complain of being exploited or cheated on by their lovers. Despite the out-there language, Zane's advice is sympathetic and sensitive on every area of sexual confusion and difficulty. (July)
