A Comprehensive Guide to G-Spot!,
This review is from: The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot (Paperback)
This is the most comprehensive book on g-spot I have ever found. The author, Violet Blue, covers all the basics and then takes it a step further. She includes all the things every girl should know about g-spot and also includes some real experiences and stories to make it personal.
Violet Blue is a sex educator who lectures to Human Sexuality students at San Fransisco State University, UC Berkley and to trainees at the National Sex Crisis and Information Hotline. She is a bestselling author to many sex guides and instructional books and an editor to many erotica collections. The forward was written by Jesse Bering PhD. He is the author of The Belief Instinct and the former director of the Institute of Cognition and Culture at Queen's University. I found it a bit odd that a gay male would do the forward to a book about g-spot, but he writes about female ejaculation and the g-spot from a scientific perspective. I admire his opinion on the matter.
This book is written in a very conversational matter. It is as if Violet Blue is talking to some very young or at least inexperienced woman (or man). Her tone is delicate, there is no shame in this book. This is a woman with years of experience and training talking to a friend or peer about g-spot. What it is there for, how to find it, why she should own it and how to tell her partner about it. There is even some talk in this book to the partner of this woman, explaining how best to get to it and why it might be important.
I know I have a g-spot, this book only served to validate it's place in my sex play. Violet Blue goes over the best ways to explore and discover g-spot play using toys, your partner, your fingers, whatever it takes. I really enjoyed this book, but I am not sure who best to share this with in my life. A good friend who doubts it's existence? A man who isn't quite sure? A grown daughter I might want to empower? Yes, yes, yes!
This book is broken up into easy to digest chapters with sub-chapters diving this book up even further. I enjoyed the writing style and the way this book felt less like a textbook and more like a self-help book. The only part I wasn't sure about were the sexy stories that she included at the end of almost every chapter. While they were very well written and erotic, I wasn't sure who they were written for. Maybe they were just for inspiration? Also, I have no way to know weather these are true stories or just imaginary. I really hope they were true stories, but it worked either way. After reading this book I am ready for g-spot play!
