More About the Author

In addition to being a sex writer, author, blogger, video host, producer and director, Jamye Waxman, M.Ed., is a well-known and sought after educator and lecturer in the field of human sexuality and relationships. Jamye utilizes her Masters in Sex Education from Widener University and her recent SFSI certification to demystify female pleasure, arm the public with accurate information, and empower people with the ability to pursue fun and freedom in their sex lives.

Waxman's career as a sex educator began as at world-famous sex toy shop Babeland in New York, and since she has gone on to be internationally recognized for her contributions to the sex and media community. In 2005, Wired.Com dubbed her "the nexxxt generation of sex educator," and she has gone on since to live up to that title.

Jamye is the CGO of gasm.org, a website devoted to female sexual pleasure, health and orgasms. She has created her own adult education and erotic films in addition to her collaborations as a producer and co-writer with adult film pioneer Candida Royalle. Her three-part video series, Personal Touch, was put out by Adam and Eve Pictures in 2007, and her latest educational film, 101 Positions for Lovers (Sensual Couples) has received praise from Fleshbot and author of The Guide to Getting It On, Paul Joannides, Psy.D. In addition to posting her own "reality" videos on her Youtube channel. Waxman's sex advice videos appear on Cherry TV's Fresh Advice, Sex Health Guru and FortheGirls.

Jamye has also served as the sex advice columnist for various publications including LA Weekly (After Dark website), Playgirl Magazine ("Sex.Ed.") and Steppin' Out Magazine ("Hot Wax"). She regularly acts as a consultant, and has been interviewed and quoted in both printed and online publications such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Women's Health, Men's Health, Zink, AVN, Forbes, Xbiz, RealitySandwich, Jane, Zug, Heeb, Time Out New York, The NY Daily News, and YourTango. Her writing can also be found at her own blog, Jamye Waxman: Sex Matters.

She is the author of several books, including the award-winning book Getting Off: A Woman's Guide to Masturbation (Seal Press) and Women Loving Women: Appreciating and Exploring the Beauty of Erotic Female Encounters. She also contributed to the book Naked Ambition: Women Who Are Changing Pornography. JamYe recently collaborated with Emily Morse (of Miss Advised) to create Hot Sex: Over 200 Things You Can Try Tonight, and the two are currently working on an e-book that will offer essential sex tips to straight men. She is also in the process of researching and writing her next book on the proverbial female biological clock, The Wake Up Call.

Back in the day, Jamye was a radio producer for the likes of Joan Rivers, Alan Colmes, Joey Reynolds, Bob Berkowitz and Chaunce Hayden. She is a former TV Producer on Naked NY (Metro TV). As an active participant in her community, she is President of Feminists for Free Expression and a SFSI board member. When she's not writing or playing on camera, she loves traveling to host sex education workshops geared toward Generations X and Y.

These days she spends a good deal of time living the sexy NorCal life in San Francisco and preparing to obtain her MFT at Santa Clara University.

Second purchase since I lost track of original one I previously bought.

Very cute pictures, easy to follow format, and organized chapters help to keep this book from being overwhelming despite the amount of information it holds.

If you're young and just studying this information, it would be a good book.

Format: Paperback
Everyone will learn something from this book. It's packed with interesting and useful information (from very basic to sophisticated) and contains a huge list of resources if you want to know more (or, want to buy some of the great gadgets Jayme writes about). In addition, Jayme peppers the book with quotes from real women so you can know what the rest of us are thinking without having to ask.

If you're a woman, Jayme will teach you what you need to know about your sexual biology and how it can make you happy (or happier). If you're a man, you will understand womens' bodies (and minds) in a way that will make you a better lover.

Jayme writing is smart and fun. You'll feel like you're talking to one of your girlfriends at a slumber party. Most importantly, she tells it like it is without apology. Sex is fun! Get this book and let Jayme show you how to make it even better!

This book may have been better when I was 18, but at 54, no new info provided. It was pretty well written and had good graphics to teach the proper name/location for things. If you're young and just studying this information, it would be a good book. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother buying it.

This book handles this sensitive subject in a friendly and straightforward manner. The author provides lots of basic information and advice. I would recommend this book to all young women, and to any woman who wants to learn more about her own sexuality.

First things first... I think that all women should have this book! It wouldn't hurt if men read it too. There is all kinds of interesting information about a women's anatomy that I wasn't aware of. It has good tips and reviews for toys and other products you can use. I also like the fact that it has quotes from women all over the country through out it. A must read.

Format: Paperback
This was given to me as a present.

I am a woman who is already in touch with her body, so unfortunately there was nothing really interesting or new in this book for me. It's good to know there is somebody publishing this information, though, for less knowledgeable women.

That being said, anyone who is getting over some sort of mental block or who just hasn't tried exploring, young or old, would benefit from this book. It touches (hehe) every subject possible to make you look at your body and your self differently.

If a guy were to be so brave to buy this book, I would give him a high five. There are a lot of little 'secrets' in here to help men get more intimate and be more attentive to their women.

Jayme is brilliant, funny, and fabulous! You want to buy and devour this book. Every women should have the joy and pleasure of fulfilling our her desires. And this book is your ticket to fun, self-love, and a great time.
I especially love all the tidbits of history and the how-tos for the different toys. Women are amazing creatures and Jayme's book is a must-have for any women who truly wants to be empowered, loved, and honored.

Format: Paperback
This probably the most helpful female masturbation sex book I've read. And I've read a few. Very cute pictures, easy to follow format, and organized chapters help to keep this book from being overwhelming despite the amount of information it holds. It has helpful blurbs in it from actual women, an oveview of sex toys and sex toy companies, suggestions for solo play, very non-scary diagrams, brief histories of sex toys, discusses the stigma of masturbation, how to safely play solo, and much more. Very helpful to me was the listing in the back of online stores and informative sites, helpful for comparing toys and getting personalized help from the staff of many sex toy shops like babeland and early2bed.
