I dont think it would have been as good if I just gave the book to her and said "hey babe, read this...this is something I wanna do...".

Honestly, there's nothing really wrong with this book, it just seems a little on the thin side. It's like the Cliff Notes version of Jack Morin's book (which I highly recommend). Oh, I suppose I should explain: I bought this for my wife so that she might get more comfortable with anal sex. After I bought this, I bought Morin's book, and that's when the real fun began. What started out as an attempt to get my wife into anal sex turned out to be grand experiment for me. Now, analingus and two-way anal sex is a regular part of our marital relations. Let's be honest here: dildos and strap-ons can be for straight men too.

Format: Paperback
Let me start by saying, that although the title implies that this is a book for women, I think it's so jam packed with useful information and candid insight, that anyone, regardless of gender, who has an interest in anal play, from the curious to those who already enjoy anal play in their intimate lives, will find this an extremely informative and fascinating read. And if you're in a relationship, it is definitely one of those books that you can enjoy reading together.

Unfortunately many women I've spoken to over the years have had bad experiences with anal sex, and developed valid anxieties as a result around this form of sexual expression. These often involve concerns about safety, pain, and feelings of degradation, and the subordination of women. If this applies to you, or to anyone you know, then this book could be a very useful resources in helping to gain an understanding of the essential elements for a positive experience, and how to avoid a negative one if you ever choose to venture into that realm again. Because Taormino's loud and clear take home message is, if it's not feeling good and comfortable for everyone involved, then it's time to stop.

The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women 2nd Edition is overflowing with extensive information on social, emotional, physiological and practical aspects of anal play, which guide the reader through the process of making a bit of butt action, the most pleasurable (and safe - emotionally and physically) as possible for everyone.

She opens with a comprehensive guide to the physiological elements, explaining the `why' behind different types of stimulation, and how they have the ability to induce so much pleasure (or if not approached properly, potential pain, discomfort and anxiety).

Format: Paperback
Ms. Taormino does a wonderful job of holding the hand of the female apprehensive about the idea of anal sex! This is the anal sex 101 book written by a woman for a woman. It starts with the basics and continues on with suggestions / recommendations on how to get maximum enjoyment from this naughty pleasure. The emphasis is three-fold: communication, time and lubricant.

I bought this book for my wife to rouse her interest in the subject. After about a couple weeks, with the addition of appropriate lubricant and anal plug, my wife is experiencing some of the best multiple pleasures in the 20 years of our marriage! And, obviously, I'm happy with it :) Great for the sex life!
