Review

"...what [people] need to know to be healthy and prudent, while still being happy and passionate, in intimate relationships." -- Dr. Judy Kuriansky, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Dating and Generation Sex: America's Hottest Sex Therapist Answers the Hottest Questions about Sex

From the Author

This is the kind of book I wish that someone would've written for me -- a hip, erotically charged, sexual survival guide of sorts that wouldn've answered all of my questions regarding body parts, body image, contraception, STDs, HIV, orgasm, self-pleasuring, attraction sexual positions, sexual enhancers, sexual health maintenance, and safer sex.... With more young adults postponing marriage but maintaining active sex lives as singles, there's a lot we need to know to navigate some of the most thrilling, sexually liberating years of our lives.

Format: Paperback
"The Hot Guide to Safer Sex" offers 20,30-somethings a fresh guide/tutorial/handbook on sex for the 21st century. Yvonne Fulbright turns the reader on to new ways to enjoy and explore sex and intimacy, while using protection. She comfortably walks you through the female/male anatomy and gives tips and "how-to's" on a number of methods to ensure pleasure for your and your partner. Fulbright also gives the skinny on all of the STI's that we should be knowledgeable of and provides consequences of unprotected sex, such as infertility, which young adults often forget. Fulbright receives my applause for writing such a well-composed, comfortable, relevant, easy to read, guide to safer sex. It's a delight. I laughed out loud on numerous occasions and often found myself saying, "really?"

The "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex" for the 21st century, this book is an owner's manual for the sexually active young adult. The author offers a voguish and responsible perspective on a variety of topics ranging from fantasy and masturbation, to multiple male orgasms, to the effects that various drugs have on sexual health and performance.
This book is sure to enhance the sexual health, appetite and experiences of anyone who reads it. It is easy to see why Ms. Fulbright is fast becoming the voice of sexual health and education for Generation Y.

I picked up the book after seeing it on my girlfriends coffee table and I couldn't put it down. The author doesn't get overly scientific and she knows what she's talking about. Finally, someone offers an understandable and accurate description of how the "g-spot" works. The chapter on drugs and sex was incredibly informative as well.
I highly recommend this book to any guy interested in receiving rave reviews from his partner, whether she's your long-term girlfriend or a one-night rendezvous.

Review of The Hot Guide to Safer Sex: The Ideas You Want, the Information You Need to Keep It Sexy and Safe When You're "Doin the Deed" (Positively Sexual) (THGSS)

By Yvonne K. Fulbright

This book was a fluid read, not too difficult, technical, or offending. I've read several books and they may make a mention in passing topics regarding safe sex, but not near into the depth of THGSS and it answered one question that I wanted to know that everyone else seemed to gloss over.

It started out with some Anatomy and the Sexual Response Cycle, may sound dull here, but it puts things in the same framework so we might know what a perineum is or the difference between the urethral and vaginal openings.

Then Solo-sex, Orgasm for men and women and all the multi-combinatorial gasms there are. The addition of fantasy, and how this creates additional and amazing senseations as well is introduced here, tantric principles without being woo woo. Note, Solo sex or sex without a partner IS the safest sex you can have.

Then sex is complicated by adding more than one into the sexual mix. Attraction thru "The One" and all love relationships in between, including flings, cheating and threesomes. This section is very well written and guides the reader to think about where they fit into the picture, how to determine and express personal boundaries and what you will and will not conspire to be.

In the context of safe sex, the differences between (Sexually Transmitted Infections) STI's and Pregnancy prevention methods are discussed. I think this is highly misunderstood by the younger more experimental generation (at least more so than when I was a youngster....

As a sex-positive nurse-midwife who does a lot of sexuality education, I had high hopes for this book. I expected juicy tips, down and dirty, direct-talking, medically accurate information... and I found it in this book, but not really.

Fulbright does an excellent job of compiling a one-source guide on sexuality, safer sex, and the prevention of STIs and pregnancy - yet, despite its title, it lacks focus and content on how to make safer sex hot and fun. In fact, we don't get to safer sex until chapter 9 on page 175!!! With its target clearly being college-aged heterosexual women, I think it's unfair to expect twenty-somethings to read through that much content before getting to the meat and potatoes of a book. While I wholeheartedly agree that mind, body, and spirit are all crucial for intense, ecstatic sexual experiences, I can't help but fear this book missed its opportunity to focus on the subject that is so rarely spoken about in sexuality books - safer sex!

If this were marketed as a 'guide to getting it on for twenty-somethings', I'd have given it 5 stars. As it stands, I give it three... because the title is misleading. What you see is not what you get.
