Solid intro book, but major flaws
on September 9, 2012
I found this book to be very redundant. There were useful points to be made, but it took TT three pages to express what could have been done in a bullet point or short paragraph. Moreover, a lot of topics were covered over and over again. For instance, explaining how to find your G spot and how to masturbate with your G spot were almost the exact same chapter written twice.
Things I did like:
- the book talked about what lubes to avoid and why; there was a lot of good detail about harmful chemicals, differences between types of lube, what the active ingredients are, etc. A++
- great instructions for anal play and how to do a preparatory enema
- quotes from real people at the beginning of each chapter (good diversity)
Things I didn't like
- The voice is incredibly inconsistent. Sometimes, the book addresses the reader as a female receptive partner with a male insertive partner, sometimes as a genderless insertive partner with a female receptive partner, and sometimes it's not clear. The back and forth is disorienting, and the language is not trans-inclusive (and a stretch to say queer-inclusive)
- I'd like fewer pictures of beautiful women with their mouths open in excstacy and more pictures of the toys and products the book is recommending. Also, it makes the book impossible to read on the metro.
