Editorial Reviews

Review

"This isn't just a blow-by-blow (pun intended) account of GOTN's sex life but a funny and often heartbreaking story of a real woman not so different to a lot of us. She's just more honest about what she wants. And she wants sex. A lot of it. With different people. On her terms. I felt empowered by the end." - Bondara

"What makes this work as a genuinely engaging book, rather than just a series of pornographic vignettes trussed up tight in a slick jacket (ahem)... is the emotional underpinning. Girl on the Net writes with genuine love, as well as lust. You can feel the highs and lows, the hope and the heartbreak, as well as the hot and the heavy." - The Pod Delusion

"It's delightfully filthy, throwing around the sort of language that would put my mother off reading with a casual glee. Stories of so-called normal sex, debauched sex, and even borderline rape in one disturbing case are all thrown in here, and there's absolutely no holding back. What really elevates it for me is that it comes with its fair share of pathos too." Christopher Mansell - A Writer's Side Quest

"Women are sure to nod and smile, while for men it's like getting to peer behind the curtain." - CD Foxwell, Erotic Den of Erotica

About the Author

Girl on the Net is a feminist sex blogger. Born in the south of England, Girl on the Net travelled around a bit studying Philosophy and amassing a spectacular collection of bad habits before settling down in London. She now lives in a small flat with a hoard of books and an impressive selection of dirty coffee cups, and aspires to be the sort of person who visits museums at the weekends.
During the week you might spot her at comedy nights or science talks, and on Friday nights she'll likely be the first person in the pub, ringing everyone else to see where they've got to. If you happen to meet her in real life and think you know who she is, please don't let on. Like most people, she's far more fun on the internet.

It’s never a good thing to get too aroused on public transport. Sure, you can enjoy the subtle and naughty thrill of having blood pump around your secret meats on your way to work, but the lines between “illicit thrill” and “gurning loon on the 167” grow thinner by the day. Having read GoTN’s blog in the past, I was prepared to ignore my own genital-based axiom and dive into a sordid and slightly sticky world of hair-pulling, penetration, and the sort of thing you wouldn’t feel comfortable reading while seated next to a nun.

To my delight, it was smutty – how could it not be? – but it was also something far more than that. It was touching and honest and brutal; GoTN uses her (myriad, varied, *saucy*) experiences as a prism to view the way society treats sex and gender, kink and relationships – paragraphs on watersports which are designed to titillate sit comfortably next to an open and frank exploration on the importance of honesty and communication in relationships.

As a society, we desperately need to grow up about sex. Vibrators are packaged with knowing winks and kooky names, while the very idea that a *woman* enjoys (whisper it) *having sex* still warrants a raised eyebrow. Sex is fun. It’s stupid and messy and ridiculous and we all pull funny faces and emit weird-smelling fluids yet we somehow treat it like this holy rite, this vast, secret, sterile _monolith_ that has the power to reduce the world as we know it to a mound of sweaty rubble.

With “My Not-So-Shameful Sex Secrets”, GoTN dissects and explores these hang-ups beautifully. This book is brave, honest, filthy and feminist. It’s a refreshing and frank treatise on sex and sexuality, was well as being mucky enough to make you clench your thighs together on the bus. It’s like reading a copy of Nature and a copy of Razzle at the same time. Lovely.

This is not high literature, but it is also not quite "smut." It is chatty, memoir about dealing with sexuality developed from a fairly well-written sex blog. It is has the necessary "naughty" bits, and it reads more like a dairy or a blog than "proper" memoir, but there a lot of substance to it and only parts of it are purely from the blog. Now "the sex secrets" here are mostly just normalizing what is generally somewhat natural, if promiscuous, kink and debunking some commonly held misconceptions that most people attracted to such a book probably don't have, but it could be liberating at particular stages of one's life. It's an excellent and humanizing example of what a sex blogger can do if she is honest, frank, but allows just enough emotional vulnerability to be on display to both educational and fairly engaging. For what it is, it is excellent and, at moments, still hot. I was surprised that it has some ambitions beyond titillation but I shouldn't have been if I hard read Girl-on-the-Net's blog.

Girl on the Net's amazing memoir is just as hot as her blog, while adding what every memoir needs: a whole lot of solo expression, *cough* some impressive sexual shenanigans, expanded stories that we never quite got to read enough of on her site, and some of the terrible rotten no-good very bad things that she did too. The writing is great.

I think my facial expressions went through the entire repertoire as I read through this book - from delight as I enjoyed her discoveries; horror at the disasters which befell her; wincing as she did that thing again with that person oh-no-she-didn't!; hopefulness and concern and worry and argh and everything in between.

This is the best non-fiction filth I've read in a long time. Recommended!

Spend any time at a major airport or railway station and one cannot but fail to notice that people come in a bizarre range of shapes, textures and sizes. What airports do for our understanding of the physical variety of humans, Girl on the Net does for our sexuality – it provides a glimpse as to what variability exists.... and then some.
I discovered Girl on the Net through an article in The Guardian (on the quackery to be found in the Dating and Relationship industry). Following various links I found other articles that she had written. As one would expect from a contributor to such prestigious journals Girl on the Net is well written; brilliantly paced, and provocative. It forces the reader to not only reconsider ones assumptions on sex, but also on relationships and their emotions.
Girl on the Net has been described as smut or filth (I’ll admit to several unngh* moments), but it is far more important than that! I believe it should be read by every sexually active person - for no another reason than it ought to teach the reader (and society at large) to communicate. Communicate about Sex but also to Communicate about Emotion and about Relationships. I believe that is why she felt a need to write this book; it is certainly why I recommend it – unreservedly.
*Sorry, I will not give the plot away. You will have to read the book to learn the meaning of her useful new word.
P.S. If you are shocked by reading this book, then go to your nearest airport or railway station; look around you, and then try to define a ‘normal’ human.
