The author covers vibrators and dildos quite well, along with lubrication and other basic toy topics, including basic anatomy and toy hygiene. If you are new to sex toys, this would not be a bad introduction. You won't find any really wild and on the edge sexual toys or practices here, but the information that is here is solid and useful.
There is a small section on bondage and an even smaller section on BDSM toys which essentially only discusses basic floggers or riding crop type toys. Nothing more exotic is examined, which is probably to keep from scaring the newbie or those whose tastes do not run to such things.
I struggled with giving this book only 3 stars, but the fact that Betty Dodson's work is mentioned, along with a great listing of solid resources for further exploration, made me push it up to 4 stars.
Not an encyclopedia of sexual toys, but a good solid introduction to safe toy play. Recommended for those just starting out.
