Good Vibrations is a bright, convivial, women-owned sex-toy store in San Francisco, where customers of both genders and all sexual orientations feel welcome. Their book is as candid, upbeat, and friendly as the store. It is filled with information that customers ask for most frequently, tips for enhancing your sex life, and reviews of a variety of sex toys. Good Vibrations believes that "there's more sexual pleasure available than most people experience" and "achieving this pleasure should not be difficult, dangerous, or expensive."
This is a sex manual of a special sort. It starts with the basics ("Sexual Anatomy 101," "Communications," "Masturbation") aimed at teaching the reader to receive and give pleasure. Other chapters ("Lubrication," "Creative Touching," "Oral Sex," "All About Vibrators," "Fantasies") describe how to enhance the sexual experience. You'll get answers to questions you never knew to ask: how to keep dildos clean, what is "packing," what is the appeal of S/M, for example. A substantial chapter on "Safer Sex" offers techniques both expected (use a condom) and unexpected (put it on him using your mouth). Quotations from real people about their sexual pleasures lend interest and eroticism. Explicit line drawings show sex between male-female, male-male, and female-female partners, as well as solitary acts with vibrators. "In our fantasies, we dream of this book with its cracked spine and well-thumbed pages lying on your nightstand next to your vibrator, lube, massage oil and condoms," write the authors. For education and entertainment, this book is a winner. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
Winks and Semans, managers of a San Francisco adult "toy" store, Good Vibrations, describe in this well-written, just-right-for-browsing compendium many of the sexual pleasures and practices some people--straight or gay--may want to know more about. But this is not an ordinary "how to have better sex" manual. Instead, it focuses on the importance of fantasy and on many props--"sex toys"--frequently glossed over in other similar books. For the simply curious or the sexually adventurous, the authors describe these toys. They also offer a cornucopia of advice and information gathered from interviews about sexual practices. An in-depth chapter on preventing AIDS is included, along with an extensive shopping guide, a list of erotic videos and a bibliography. Some readers may be repelled reading about S/M practices, power games and body piercing--or by the strong emphasis on the pleasure and "popular mechanics" of sex, rather than romance. But even those not inclined to follow authorial suggestions may find this work an excellent opportunity to look behind the closed doors of other people's bedrooms.

Top customer reviews
I give it 2 stars because of the attitude of the author. It is written in a very "anything goes" style. She claims to have written it for information leaving out judgement, but I found tremendous liberal bias and selective religious persecution. Including a quote from a poorly informed person is still trying to make a point. I would not call it complete either. There is information missing on toys of various materials (glass, metal) that is not covered. It is not like glass and metal are new technology.
There is good toy and technique information. If you can stand the liberal anything should go because I say so attitude and ignore what you don't care to experiment with then you may learn something useful. I recommend to keep it away from your teenagers. Too much information too early is not helpful.
Update Jan 2016: It does have some information on metal toys, but it is small compared to the other information in the book.
