Format: Paperback
I guess I will give this book 5 stars, not because it is a literary classic, but because it is probably the best book of its kind--a sex blog edited into book form.

Abby Lee, subsequently "outed" as a London film technician Zoe Margolis, is a single woman in her thirties who spends a lot of time masturbating, having casual sex, and thinking about sex. She is very orgasmic and wonders if she is a nymphomaniac.

Although the book is well written, witty, and contains lots of ruminations and information about sex, Abby/Zoe comes across as somewhat charmless and self absorbed, but we should probably discount this as, by definition, such qualities are surely innate to sex blog creators.

Her online blog has been tremendously successful, and judging by the responses written by readers, appeals very much to the woman who leads an outwardly respectable life, but enjoys reading about another outwardly respectable woman who lives out her sexual fantasies, both for her own pleaure, and that of her readers while still remaining solidly middle class and easy to identify with. While sex blogs by prostitutes and/or escorts are two a penny, she is careful to distance herself from this field and expresses revulsion at the idea of selling sex.

The author, like Bridget Jones, likes to compile lists of pros and cons, for example the pros and cons of large penises vs. smaller penises, which make interesting reading and are almost worth the price of admission on their own. I won't state her conclusions here in case I spoil it for you.

The book is not particularly titillating, so readers looking for [...] fodder probably won't find much here.

Format: Paperback
This book is a completely uninhibited one year diary about a single lady's obsession with sex, experiments (bisexual, threesomes, s&m, you name it and it is there...) and her attempt to get into a serious relationship. It is very British in its language but the British slang makes it really warm. There are lots of (helpful?) sexual and relational tips for both men and women. And the eroticism hits you pleasantly. Definitely worth a read.

20 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Jason Hornbuckle VINE VOICE on February 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
Yes, this is supposed to be some tale of a "liberated" woman, charged with the realization that she can be sexual and not feel bad for it. The fact that she sleeps with 5 guys a month is not slutty or a sign of clear mental problems, its "empowering".

Ok, I guess, as far as that goes

The funny/sad part of this book though (and how you take the book will depend almost entirely on your ability to see what Abby really means when she writes something) is when she writes a story about something and tries to convince herself that there's more to her life than there really is

For instance, at one point about halfway through the book, Abby decides that she's horny and wants to have sex. This is pretty common, but in this particular case she decides she wants to go to a swingers club. Only, she doesn't want to go alone. So what does she do?

First, she runs down the list of all the guys she knows who she has slept with, none of whom want to go with her. She justifies this with various reasons like "because we don't want to mess up our friendship by sleeping together". Apparently sleeping with her the once was enough for all of her male friends

Anyway, after naming off every guy she knows who doesn't want to have sex with her, she finally decides to call up her ex-bf, who she apparently hasn't talked to in quite some time, like a year or something. So, out of the blue she texts him or something and asks him to come to this swinger thing and have sex with her, and then gets explicit about all the things she wants to do with/to him. She leads the reader to believe that she's chosen this ex because she has finally gotten to the point where she's over him, and so would be able to bed him and not care about it.

Format: Paperback
This erotic memoir is one of the most fun and real I've ever read. Abby is sexy and smart and adventurous and willing to share openly and honestly with the reader--because this book began as a blog and because she wrote it under an assumed name. If you want to know what a modern woman is really thinking--about sex and relationships and more sex, this is a great book.

Well I have to say I enjoyed Abbey's torrid tales and at times thought she'd be the perfect girl for me, though I've already got the perfect girl! You'll enjoy her blogs if you enjoy open and frank discussion about sex and relationships. I only hope she's lucky like I've been in finding her soul mate....and that he shags her to her heart's content!!!

I've been meaning to read this for several years and I think it would have been more relevant to me then. However, treat this as if you were reading the blog. Read an entry and then put it down and give yourself some space. It's better to enjoy it spread out over some time.
