Susie Bright's Sex Journal stretches the sexual boundaries for the first timer as well as the experienced journal writer.

I'd read only Susie's How to Write a Dirty Story before, which I also loved, and find I really want to go ahead and catch up with her stuff that I've missed.

Susie Brights newest book "Love and Lust: A Sex Journal" is smart fun poppy game of a book that invites women to celebrate their sexual journey.

Sometimes you need someone to ask all the right questions to coax all the right answers out of you. Sometimes you need someone to ask the embarrassing questions you would not want to answer or the questions you are uncomfortable knowing are out there. Sometimes you need someone to lead the conversation to keep you on track. Sometimes you need to be tempted and the right questions can push you over the edge.

Susie Bright's guided sex journal "Love and Lust" asks some of those questions. She puts those questions out there to help you to dig down into your big box of sexual secrets (or not-so-secrets) and write about it.

Some of the questions, like "Have you ever had sex with a person you didn't know at all - a stranger?" are so personal that you may not want to know the answer yourself or you might relish in each time you had a steamy romp with someone you whose name you remember as "feathered hair guy" and would never see again.

Others, like "What was your first sexual experience with another person?" might cause fuzzy, dreamy somewhat awkward memories of a first love or memories you might prefer not to remember and have remained hidden.

But that is what a journal is for! A journal is for those secrets that you want to tell yourself and either celebrate those secrets or simply get them off of your chest. A journal is to hide your deepest innermost dirty secret thoughts in. It is to let loose and to write all those thoughts, ideas and fantasies you have been aching to get out of your mind, through your fingers onto the pages for your own personal fulfillment.

Or to "accidentally" leave for a lover/potential lover/in-law/law-student roommate to find and ogle and sigh over.

And for the latter this is a most tempting journal...

Format: Diary
The lock and key reminded me of my first diary; a magical place where I could write my thoughts. I always attributed my journals to possess a special kind of power because somewhere in my life, the written words manifested. Sometimes I wondered if it were the pages my words were written on or something much bigger.

Susie Bright's Sex Journal stretches the sexual boundaries for the first timer as well as the experienced journal writer. The sensual prompts take those who haven't been in the sexual arena to a new place of discovery and for the experienced, allows for a time of reflection and perhaps - sexual revision.

The quotes within the book originate from influential people across all mediums such as Mae West and Gypsy Rose Lee. Susie Bright does an excellent job in strategically placing the sex positive quotes throughout the journal. Each quote or saying is meant to elicit a response from the recesses of the sexual mind. Each prompt sent my mind to the exact time and place of what I was doing. Some places I revisited with pride, while others took me to a darker place. Oddly enough, a few of the writing prompts allowed me to wrestle with some old demons and healing began. And just when I thought I had done just about every sexual activity out there, Susie's prompts asked some questions that got my sexual creative juices flowing.

There is one caveat: the Sex Journal will transform you in unexpected ways. Before I encountered Susie Bright's work years ago, I keep my sexual thoughts to myself. After I read a few of her works, I felt brave enough to step out into the mainstream. Now a decade and several dozens of sexual experiences later, the journal allows me to connect with feelings and emotions I've struggled to own or simply have long forgotten.

Come with Susie and she shall show you the way. Susie's guidebook-like journal or diary is a turn-on and literally unlocks (the book has a lock and key) your love and lust reflections, enjoyments, horrors, mis-steps, and all the rest of it. I know that I'm supposed to scribble down my thoughts in this book - and maybe someday I will - but, for now, I'm keeping the neatly-lined spaces below the questions and prompts blank - undefiled pages somehow have a way of letting my imagination run wilder and more chaotic whenever I chance to pick up the book.

Love and Lust tells you right up there on the first page: "This is your sex story - no one else has lived anything like it". To my knowledge, no one else has ever put together a book anything like this either. Once you've decided that you want to (or even want to try to) write about sex, this will be the first and last page that you will need to read in sequence.

First off, this is a beautiful book. The pictures don't do it justice. For those of us whose lives have become so electronic, it's a chance to pick up a special pen (or find a previous favored one - mine was packed away with the mementos of my pre-email letter writing materials). It _looks_ like it should be a book about sex. So make it one. It's going to be my go-to gift for some of the more daring women in my life...and some of the more reserved ones as well. I'm not sure which group will enjoy it more.

This is a "guided" journal. For people who have never journaled before (or people like me, for whom it has been many many years), it's a lovely place to start. For experienced journalers, I think the setup will provoke well different writing than the proverbial blank book. And that's what is so lovely about the way the journal is formatted: you can dip your toe in with some of the more gentle questions ("Who did you kiss most recently"?). These can be answered as briefly or in as much detail as you like - there is plenty of room to write, even for the questions that could be answered in few words. Or you can dive right in to some questions that will likely take reflection ("You run into 'The One Who Got Away'. You've got the next four hours, and no one else knows where you are or what you're up to. What happens"?).
