Disclaimer: I've personally acquainted with the author, who is a fabulous person, and I share many of her beliefs about sex-positivity.
But, sentences like this: "What if I told you that you don't even know what you like sexually because you haven't been free enough to decide for yourself?" evoke the answer, for me, of "Please do not project YOUR own experiences onto me. I actually DO know what I like sexually and have made my own decisions." Whenever any writer uses "you": "you grew up thusly" and "you believed such-and-such," it sets my teeth on edge. No. YOU are not inside my head. You can share your experiences with me, and ask me if mine were similar. Sometimes, they might be. But don't TELL me what MINE were. #boundaryviolation
Luckily, the entire book doesn't go carry in that writing style. There are many valid points about American culture and attitudes about women's sexuality made, there are interesting nuggets about women's sexual health. The chapter, early on, that was all Bible study would probably irritate the pluck out of anyone who 1) has entirely rejected the Bible as a guide for living, 2) fully embraces the Bible as a guide for living, 3) doesn't feel any desire to reconcile the Bible with their sexual lifestyle.
And that's my problem with this book. It tries to do too much, in too many different directions, and accomplished and sexy as the author is (and her sexcapades in the book are HAWT), doesn't quite pull it off. IMO, it's worth a read, but be prepared to lurch all over the place.
You will enjoy this book whether you are a sex geek - endlessly fascinated by the topic of sexuality, a person who wants to understand women and female sexuality better, or someone who simply appreciates a good memoire. It's all there.
