The author wrote well and explained everything in good enough detail that it was a pleasure to read but also very informative.
Rachel
To conclude, implicit in hetero women making love - is that doing so is not in competition with (nor is it a substitute for) making love with our men.
Jenifer M
It made me feel whole as a person at the end of reading this book, it made me feel like I've always supposed to have felt...real.

This is the first (illustrated) book I've found which encourages love making between two hetero women - and it's utterly fantastic!

The cover photo - which resembles the timeless statue, "The Three Graces," by Antonio Canova -- was the first to catch my eye.

Once inside, I found the text to be both informative and poetic. Making love to each other is described in a very natural, matter-of-fact tone (with taboos only mentioned indirectly).

But it's easily the photos that are the most captivating. They are both breathtaking and sensual - without showing the most intimate places - or the most intimate contact (but pretty close).

The author teases us through all of the steps - starting with attraction (seeing other women as beautiful), the senses (touch, smell and taste), knowing thyself (masturbation), toys (getting things flowing), lips (for kissing everywhere first) and then tongues - as the key to girl/girl enjoyment (for both arousal and pleasure) -- and finally concluding with threesomes (not what you might think) and places (where to go online to meet others so inclined).

In two of my favorite photos, one depicts a girl being passionately kissed about her neck - while her friend slips her hand down the front of the girl's loosened jeans; and the second one captures the moment of discovery - as a pretty girl peeks under her friend's undies - as they are gently removed by two sets of hands. In later chapters, the young women are all nude - and the touching depicted is much more focused.

My favorite chapters - which were also the most instructional (and enthralling) - were those that dealt with oral sex.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This gentle and cheerful book carries a unique approach to physical affection between women. There's no feminist or political agenda - in fact, there's very little about female homosexuality at all. It's just about the sexuality, sensuality, and attractiveness of women, and sees no reason to assign special meaning or labels when women feel that attraction, too. It arises naturally when a woman's love for her own feminine beauty and erotic potential becomes too much for her one body to contain.

Starting from that simple, un-charged premise, Waxman leads the female reader (which I'm not) through the basic steps of exploring another woman's sensuality. That starts, of course, with knowing her own - the things about herself that the woman will reach out to in another. Then there's the reaching out itself. Many of this book's intended readers have only had experience reaching out to (and being reached by) men, so this offers as much encouragement as education in how the experience might differ. Some of Waxman's advice might seem obvious, like observations on how intimate details differ between one woman and the next. But, if the reader has only herself as an example, how could she be expected to know the range of differences? Discovering them is part of the loving adventure.

This book's photos truly stand out. They depict beautiful young women singly, in pairs, or in small intimate groups. Every picture depicts delicate sensuality - happy people in enticing scenes and activities. Even discussions of mff threesomes features ladies-only photos. In keeping with the book's text, the pictures carry an explicitly sexual sense, but without vulgarity or negative overtone. One charming paradox appears in many of these images.

When Lori and I were researching "Threesome: How to Fulfill Your Favorite Fantasy," many women told us they wanted to experience another woman but "just couldn't imagine it." After viewing slides of women together in a non-threatening environment, i.e. alone and involved with each other, about 85% admitted that they now felt confident enough to explore their possibilities.

"Women Loving Women" is the perfect title to open the horizon for these curious women. The photos offer an excellent guide for women who are not quite sure what to expect, what to do, how to act. The positioning is erotic enough to inspire but so tasteful that no one interested in a bi experience will be turned off.

Artistically, the photography has a David Hamilton feel -- lushly set, beautifully posed. I imagine that thousands of frames were rejected to arrive at this perfect mix. Bravo!

Recommendation: Some of Hamilton's models look so young, you may question whether they are legal. That said, for pure technical skill and erotic posing, I recommend any book or poster by David Hamilton as a complement to this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is not a polished, coffee table, collector's item of lesbian photography - it's an instructional manual. But one can be forgiven for this initial assumption given the astounding color photography laced throughout this work. Almost every page is adorned with gorgeous, full-page images of girl-on-girl sexuality. The photography is is simply breathtaking and holds absolutely nothing back. We're talking full-frontal assault here ... and the lesbian experience is showcased in all it's beautiful, romantic, intoxicating glory.

Heterosexual women are the targeted audience and the book's premise is introducing them to the beauty of the lesbian encounter. The author, renown sex expert Jayme Waxman, provides a host of very usable information that, besides being very accessible, is almost encyclopedic in it coverage. Topics include famous women who took female lovers; the sensory joys of touch, smell, and taste; how to find, approach, and engage with other women; toy play, girl-on-girl-on-girl encounters; she even explores, in great detail, the fine art of tongue play. Ms. Waxman is masterful in her prose. It's quite inspiring actually, and like Rodney Dangerfield in "Back to School", one feels compelled to stand-up in a crowded room and shout, "Yes! Yes! Oh Yes!"

The publisher Quiver does an excellent job too - the production quality is superb and despite being a paperback, this book is put together like a tank. Ultimately, despite it's lovely appearance, "Women Loving Women" is designed to be an inspiring, carry-with-you-everywhere instructional manual that will jettison its female readers into the ravishing depths of making love with other beautiful women. And I can personally that attest that men will love it too.
