Editorial Reviews


"Most men want it more, and most women have mixed feelings about it, if not an outright sense of dread about the act. To all of them my advice is the same: Pick up Blue's Ultimate Guide to Fellatio 2nd Ed."

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Delicious! July 29, 2004
I really wasn't prepared to actually learn anything from this book. I truly thought this book would be a recap of what I already knew. I was wrong! Like a lot of women, I was guilty of over-simplifying the male sexual cycle. This book addressed many misconceptions women have about the male sexual cycle and male orgasm. It also touches on the unique individuality of every man; just like women no two men are exactly alike in need and preferences in touch.

This book delves into the act of going down along with the gender on the receiving end of this erotic practice but the book is also littered with other practices and erotic short stories by Alison Tyler. Of course the focus is in fellatio and the art of being able to give delightfully. My favorite chapter was on the technique of deep throating. Personally, I thought deep throating was a myth limited to exploitation on porn flicks but after reading the technique I'm sure to experiment with the technique. Every aspect of going down is covered between the pages of this book. If you ever had a question about going down this book answers it whether it concerns ejaculate, techniques, visual stimulation, toys, and even practicing.

The book is a little dry for my taste but packed full of information that is useful and thought provoking if you genuinely want to please and enjoy giving by practicing fellatio I highly recommend you read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars well written and indispensible February 26, 2003
By A Customer
This book is very thorough and beginners will find it especially helpful. There's some interesting thoughts on inhibitions, good information on male anatomy and male orgasmic response, and useful suggestions for solo practice, as well as a variety of techniques for male genital massage. The chapter on male anatomy and sexual response will be especially helpful to people with little sexual experience, however they'll need to read it more than once, and will probably find it a little overwhelming. It's very thorough and detailed. Additional information on anal play, fantasies and use of toys rounds out the book. Blue deals with uncomfortable issues in a straightforward way throughout the book, providing thoughts and anecdotes with a healthy attitude toward sex. But the techniques are the heart of the book. I find it indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide for Deep Throating January 7, 2005
I had recently read, "Tickle His Pickle: Your Hands-On Guide to Penis Pleasing," by Sadie Allison, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I had tried out some of her techniques and positions -- and I was surprised to find that her suggestions in both areas had worked out much better than I had expected. Given these successes, I was curious to see if another book, "The Ultimate Guide to Fellatio," by Violet Blue, would teach me even more.

The first half of the book deals with basics, like mental preparation, anatomy, STD's (sexually transmitted diseases) and hygiene. As the "Ultimate Guide," this work's treatment of `swallowing,' though, is woefully scattered and unfocused. And I definitely could've done without the section on how to give oral love to a strap-on, which seemed to me like a total waste of time.

Where this book really shines, though, is in the area of deep throating. There's some nice diagrams which really helped me to understand how the gag reflex is triggered - and how it can be avoided. Besides relaxation and practice, Ms. Blue's best advice for deep throating better - is breathing.

The key, quite simply, is to breath OUT when it goes in, and to breath IN when it comes out - which is actually counter-intuitive, and why most of us end up choking. Ms. Blue also suggests doing this on an empty stomach - which would preclude performing this most loving of acts, unfortunately -- after one has been richly wined and dined! (Poor baby!) Lastly, there's some additional instruction offered on sexual positions which again centered on lifting your chin to position your mouth more in line with your throat, (think sword swallowing).

Other little tips that Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding October 31, 2002
By A Customer
You won't find another sex guidebook that is this smart, interesting and full of useful information. This book never insulted my intelligence; Violet Blue writes in a straightforward but fun tone (the section on male orgasm is fascinating) that gets right to the heart of going down on a guy. This book tells you exactly what to do with your mouth and hands, and how to make oral sex fun for both giver and receiver, plus how to do it anywhere, anytime. The entire chapter on deep throat was an eye opener, especially the anatomical illustration. She gives solid advice about every aspect, and I found her advice for the squeamish especially helpful. This really is the ultimate guide.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! March 20, 2003
Although, I thought our sex life was great before.... after reading this book together, my wife and I are experiencing, just as the title says "mind-blowing pleasure".
The techniques presented in this book work perfectly. The male anatomy lessons, and the information on erectile disfunction have changed our lives. We both feel like teenagers again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary! May 16, 2004
By A Customer
My boyfriend told me I didn't need to improve my oral techniques as he was quite satisfied; however, I went ahead and purchased this book anyway. Now he is very happy I bought and read this book... he says it made "good sex" into "great mind-blowing didn't know it could be this fantastic sex" and is amazed at the variety of techniques I've shown him. I found this book informative on many levels-- from the finer points of male anatomy to the processes involved in male orgasm. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to expand their repertoire and keep the fires burning.
