If you were expecting porn, this is artistic soft-core with lots of concealing shadows. And, that's about all. Ms Taormino has already written several books and this one adds very little. A picture on one side, a few sentences on the facing page, some scattered "Words to Inspire You" and, suddenly you have flipped through 179 pages. I doubt seriously that any reader will touch this book twice.

Here's the bottom line: The vagina and the anus are about an inch apart. Any position for vaginal sex will work just fine for anal sex. My only exception would be Reverse Cowgirl because bending the penis too far toward his feet can cause grievous injury. Strange to me -- Reverse Cowgirl is the position on the cover.

This book is probably one book too many but now Ms Taormino is recyling with a new tome entitled "Expert Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men." How many times can she go to the same well before the bucket comes up empty?

Five stars for soft-core artistry, one star for information, average -- three stars.

The pictures were more photographic Art, than actual real life pictures that show how to enter the positions. I felt like I was watching 2 models pose. I found the entire book to be boring and uninformative.

Tristan's expertise in all matters relating to sex, particularly her knowledge of anal sex cannot be denied. But of course if that is your interest, this is a good book. It has a lot of useful information regarding the subject that is extremely helpful.

The problem is the models she presents in the pictures. They are all young, fit, trim, and athletic, They are able to assume the depicted positions with ease. But if you are like any average American and slightly (or more) overweight, a great majority of the suggested positions are not mechanically achievable and nearly impossible to duplicate without a lot of pain and discomfort. Enjoy.

I read this book immediately upon receiving it. Took about an hour and a half to read. It was very informative and humbled me a bit. I thought I knew what I was doing, but we were still moving too fast and going about things a bit wrong. Small changes made a huge difference. After being reeducated on the subject, my wife and I were able to take the things learned and spend an enjoyable, amazing evening and subsequent morning enjoying anal sex. This has been an area of frustration for me as she has had some amazing experiences with anal sex and many failed attempts which created anxiety and frustration. I could not understand why my attempts to make her feel amazing were producing the opposite results, which were in stark contrast to our successes. This book helped us.

This book has great foundation information with more emphasis on the positions and their advantages and disadvantages. The pictures showing couples in position were informative, sensual, and yet tasteful. This book also includes three great fictional stories for those who enjoy such or want some inspiration.

Once you understand how to enjoy and prepare for penile penetration, understanding the positional advantages will allow you and your partner very sensual and satisfying experiences with anal sex.

We also purchased the authors "Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women" which is more in-depth and watched her instructional DVD. These are highly recommended as well.

I read this book cover to cover. I got it on my kindle and the pictures and the captions dont exactly add up some times, thats my only complaint. But other then that a great book. She knows her stuff and I highly recomend this book to any one who would like to know more about anal sex and the technical parts. TI also has positions designed for advanced people. She also is very considerate of the fact that we all are different and have different amounts of flexability and body types. All in all a good book

This book is great!

Really taught me some new trings about anal sex that I wasn't informed about as well as some awesome positions. Don't buy this book if you expect it to help you get anymore, but buy it if you are interested in it and ways to get your compannion interested. The illustrations and photography are amazing and sensual in this book. Very happy with it. Hope you enjoy it as well!
