Extensively researched, and wonderfully dirty. (O magazine)

An extemely engaging, detailed book; readers will easily recognize themselves and their loved ones. (Library Journal)

“A new (and sexually explicit) astrology guide looks set to make celebrities of its New York-based, fashion-savvy authors.” (The Daily Telegraph (UK))

“Sextrology picks up where Linda Goodman left off...” (The National Post)

“The favored astrologers of fashion insiders.” (Elle)

“Not only is this the most sexually forthright astrology book...but its authors also really know their stuff.” (The San Francisco Chronicle)

“Lusty Leo Kim Cattrall and sexy Sagittarian Scarlett Johansson own this racy read about how signs act in the sack.” (Us Magazine)

“This new book blows the lid on the zodiac’s erotic penchants!” (The Sunday Times of London)

“Astrology sexperts Starsky and Cox know more about your love life than you do.” (Gotham Magazine)

“A word-of-mouth phenomenon...a genuinely new take on the planet’s oldest pastime. Thank your lucky stars.” (Time Magazine)

It's great to have out as a coffee table book to for when friends are over.

There were a few things that was very spot on and if you ever want to know what makes different signs tick...this is a good book to reference!
Tamtam
I've been a student of astrology my whole life and I can honestly say that this book is the most accurate book I've discovered.

Format: Paperback
I happened upon this book while perusing the shelves at my local library. I was lingering by the "133.5" section when its bright-red cover caught my eye. After reading the title, I knew that I would be taking it home. I thumbed through the pages to my own section and that of my partner. I didn't find anything too objectionable, so I checked it out.

Unlike a seemingly-similar-and-also-excellent tome, "Linda Goodman's Love Signs," this book does not discuss in length signs in combination with each other. It does, however, give in-depth interpretations of each individual sign with a cursory list of the different combinations for both straight and gay couplings. The format separates men from women so that the nuances of each gender may be better understood.

I really like the construction of this book. Each sign/gender has a one-page introduction followed by the subheading "Sign + Mind." This first section describes the psychological makeup of its natives, using the cosmology of astrology (polarity, rulership, element, quality, etc.) in association with and represented by mythological and Biblical archetypes. If examples exist, modern literary characters are cited as well.

The second section, "Body + Soul," illustrates how the psychology of an individual expresses itself in corporeal form. I do find this section to be less "on the money," because an individual's physical form is highly colored by the Ascendant sign at birth; thus, making morphological generalities based upon sun sign alone somewhat less accurate. If you know your own (or your partner's) rising sign, you can cross-reference the corresponding section for this other sign.

The third section, "Sex + Sexuality," addresses the reasons most of us are interested in this book in the first place.

Format: Paperback
I am an astrology book junkie, and this one is very interesting to say the least. it is loads of fun for everyone to read. the style is refreshingly open and down-to-earth, yet it also goes deeper than other books i have read.
i had a hard time with this book in the sense that my pet peeve is when it is obvious that the author(s) are biased about a certain sign or group of signs and they portray these signs in more of a negative light than the others. Lets face it, we all have our light and dark traits, none of which are more beautiful or uglier than our brother's and sister's of different signs. if i were really the bratty, self-centered, steeley eyed, compassionless aries that the authors portray, i might as well jump off a cliff. I mean, I laughed aloud when i read this simply because it made me out to be such an [...] Some of it I could identify with, others things seemed to be the the realm of an aries prototype concentrated times 1000. Lets remember that astrological signs are TENDANCIES, not a black and white road map to a person's personality. if the world consisted of 12 different personalities as rigidly described in detail as they are in this book, we would have a pretty boring world indeed! people are much more complex than that! that is why it bothers me to see such generalizations. also because we all have other astrological elements that play into who we are... what about our rising sign, moon, venus and mars? Wouldn't those planetary aspects be factored into a book that represents this term, 'sextrology'? maybe it is my moon in libra, thinking this all a little bit unfair....

this is a entertaining coffee table book that is good for a few laughs. it has a few points of validity here and there that will certainly cause a few 'ahhhh's' but in the big picture please remember, if you want to REALLY know how 'you are' don't rely on some trendy sun sign book to tell you. Get your entire chart done by a professional.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By klm on November 9, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book is, at best, interesting. As with most astrology books, its content needs to be taken with a grain of salt unless you know more about the individual persons chart. The sexual turn ons sections were interesting, and had most of mine listed. but then there were other things in there that didn't describe me at all. And a lot of the people I have talked to who were of different signs didn't agree with what the book had to say. So, again, it comes down to getting to know the individual person and not just traits of their zodiac sun sign. It also uses Greek mythology as a basis for its comparisons. So if you don't now too much about it, then you might be confused. Luckily i wasn't put off by that. Its a FUN book to read, but nothing in it is concrete.

Format: Paperback
Learned and encyclopedic meet playful and raunchy ... Sextrology is so much fun I quickly found myself reading ALL the signs and ALL the combos - not just those that had me "Taurus Man" pegged.
No astro-sex guidance through inference and innuendo here - this book goes straight to the (pardon me) head. Would highly recommend to anyone aspiring to a richer (mental, physical, spiritual) sex life ... and anyone who loves a raucous romp through a mix of history, mythology, astrology and the urge to merge.

I never was one for astrology, but this book is so smart and so accurate, I've been completely turned around. It's freaky how dead-on the descriptions of each sign are. Plus the writing is so sharp and funny (and VERY sexy), it's absolutely impossible to put down. I stayed up reading (mostly about my exes) till 2 last night. My friends keep begging me to lend them my copy, but they'll have to get their own; I just can't let go. Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox are my new idols! Buy this book for yourself and your friends. You'll thank me.
