Abby Lee, subsequently "outed" as a London film technician Zoe Margolis, is a single woman in her thirties who spends a lot of time masturbating, having casual sex, and thinking about sex. She is very orgasmic and wonders if she is a nymphomaniac.
Although the book is well written, witty, and contains lots of ruminations and information about sex, Abby/Zoe comes across as somewhat charmless and self absorbed, but we should probably discount this as, by definition, such qualities are surely innate to sex blog creators.
Her online blog has been tremendously successful, and judging by the responses written by readers, appeals very much to the woman who leads an outwardly respectable life, but enjoys reading about another outwardly respectable woman who lives out her sexual fantasies, both for her own pleaure, and that of her readers while still remaining solidly middle class and easy to identify with. While sex blogs by prostitutes and/or escorts are two a penny, she is careful to distance herself from this field and expresses revulsion at the idea of selling sex.
The author, like Bridget Jones, likes to compile lists of pros and cons, for example the pros and cons of large penises vs. smaller penises, which make interesting reading and are almost worth the price of admission on their own. I won't state her conclusions here in case I spoil it for you.
The book is not particularly titillating, so readers looking for [...] fodder probably won't find much here.Read more ›
Ok, I guess, as far as that goes
The funny/sad part of this book though (and how you take the book will depend almost entirely on your ability to see what Abby really means when she writes something) is when she writes a story about something and tries to convince herself that there's more to her life than there really is
For instance, at one point about halfway through the book, Abby decides that she's horny and wants to have sex. This is pretty common, but in this particular case she decides she wants to go to a swingers club. Only, she doesn't want to go alone. So what does she do?
First, she runs down the list of all the guys she knows who she has slept with, none of whom want to go with her. She justifies this with various reasons like "because we don't want to mess up our friendship by sleeping together". Apparently sleeping with her the once was enough for all of her male friends
Anyway, after naming off every guy she knows who doesn't want to have sex with her, she finally decides to call up her ex-bf, who she apparently hasn't talked to in quite some time, like a year or something. So, out of the blue she texts him or something and asks him to come to this swinger thing and have sex with her, and then gets explicit about all the things she wants to do with/to him. She leads the reader to believe that she's chosen this ex because she has finally gotten to the point where she's over him, and so would be able to bed him and not care about it.Read more ›

I really related to this book. It was funny yet refreshingly honest. It's cool to see female sexuality talked about/expressed so openly.Published 21 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is fairly detailed if you like that sort of reading. Great for exploring your imagination. I'm a fan, thumbs up.Published on April 7, 2014 by LL Cool Muffin
Abby's adventures are hot and much of the writing is laugh out loud funny. It's great to read such a sex positive voice.Published on January 17, 2013 by HCC
I tried so hard to finish this horny mess. Instead of reading, just order a XXX movie, its better. Yes woman have desires just as strong as men but this lady needs a doctor.Published on December 2, 2011 by Taquoya L. Ruffin
This is an interesting read but overall I was disappointed in the main character. She is kind of pathetic at times, stooping low to get sex. Read morePublished on August 19, 2010 by ChrisSoll
Hard to put this sexy and entertaining book down. Not too graphic or over-the-top.Published on January 24, 2010 by Emerald City Girl
