Everyone will learn something from this book. It's packed with interesting and useful information (from very basic to sophisticated) and contains a huge list of resources if you want to know more (or, want to buy some of the great gadgets Jayme writes about). In addition, Jayme peppers the book with quotes from real women so you can know what the rest of us are thinking without having to ask.

If you're a woman, Jayme will teach you what you need to know about your sexual biology and how it can make you happy (or happier). If you're a man, you will understand womens' bodies (and minds) in a way that will make you a better lover.

Jayme writing is smart and fun. You'll feel like you're talking to one of your girlfriends at a slumber party. Most importantly, she tells it like it is without apology. Sex is fun! Get this book and let Jayme show you how to make it even better!

This book may have been better when I was 18, but at 54, no new info provided. It was pretty well written and had good graphics to teach the proper name/location for things. If you're young and just studying this information, it would be a good book. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother buying it.

This book handles this sensitive subject in a friendly and straightforward manner. The author provides lots of basic information and advice. I would recommend this book to all young women, and to any woman who wants to learn more about her own sexuality.

This was given to me as a present.

I am a woman who is already in touch with her body, so unfortunately there was nothing really interesting or new in this book for me. It's good to know there is somebody publishing this information, though, for less knowledgeable women.

That being said, anyone who is getting over some sort of mental block or who just hasn't tried exploring, young or old, would benefit from this book. It touches (hehe) every subject possible to make you look at your body and your self differently.

If a guy were to be so brave to buy this book, I would give him a high five. There are a lot of little 'secrets' in here to help men get more intimate and be more attentive to their women.

it's a good book about self loving and solo orgasm however if you are a beginner and have never an orgasm by yourself it might be hard to follow. if you have already learned how to touch yourself it offers many resources of how to keep loving yourself. it talks a lot about toys/vibrators and social aspects about female self sex.

This probably the most helpful female masturbation sex book I've read. And I've read a few. Very cute pictures, easy to follow format, and organized chapters help to keep this book from being overwhelming despite the amount of information it holds. It has helpful blurbs in it from actual women, an oveview of sex toys and sex toy companies, suggestions for solo play, very non-scary diagrams, brief histories of sex toys, discusses the stigma of masturbation, how to safely play solo, and much more. Very helpful to me was the listing in the back of online stores and informative sites, helpful for comparing toys and getting personalized help from the staff of many sex toy shops like babeland and early2bed.

First things first... I think that all women should have this book! It wouldn't hurt if men read it too. There is all kinds of interesting information about a women's anatomy that I wasn't aware of. It has good tips and reviews for toys and other products you can use. I also like the fact that it has quotes from women all over the country through out it. A must read.
