There’s still a lot of mysteries, taboos and a massive lack of communication when it comes to sex and relationships. Even now people are still embarrassed to discuss certain things, may this be something they enjoy in the bedroom or even an expectation that they have that might seem unrealistic to them. The author Stella Harris is an expert in the field who gives a really insightful look into the communication of all different aspects of relationships.
Sallie covers in depth about types of pornography, how people feel differently about it, not everyone is that interested and some find it down right disgusting, she covers how we view our bodies and relates to various people and their experiences, shocking to find some people who you would assume is at ease with their bodies, actually have real negative issues with them.
I couldn’t in good conscience recommend Sexcellence: The Sex Spreadsheet by Rex Wood, it’s dull. As the title suggests, it’s a list format, essentially a set of quick descriptions and onto the next. It’s not sexy and I don’t think it gave any good advice, in fact, it’s taught me to be far more aware of players on the dating scene.
When I saw there was an erotic audio book up for review I jumped at the chance. I thought it might be exciting laying there listening to some erotica and playing at the same time. Easier than trying to hold a book or tablet while playing, I'd have both hands free!
I have been sent the paperback book version of Better Than The Hand by Magnus Sullivan free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
By Eliza93Marie: I have somewhat recently become a curvy girl, and I have a very good sex life. However, like many other women, I struggle with body confidence and don't always feel comfortable in my own skin. My nose is too big, my belly hangs over my pants and my butt is big and flat all at the same time.
By Delilahxx: Many thanks to Cara for sending me BDSM: A Guide for Explorers of Extreme Eroticism, by Ayzad to review. I consider myself a beginner in BDSM, have tried a few things, but there is still lots more I'd like to explore. One of my main loves is spanking. I was really interested to read this book, to find out more about BDSM.
By My Tickle Trunk: Role play has always been something I knew I would end up trying. That’s not to say it’s something I actively aspired to reach, but looking at my sexual interests and the sheer volume of sexual fantasies that occupy my brain at any given time… yeah, it was due.
By Wilf3564: Sharyn covers almost every aspect of the D/s relationship. For example, there is a whole chapter simply on kissing; however it is so detailed and intense that it leaves you just as aroused and enthralled as one of the chapters on sex (of which there are many).
By Mel MacFarlane: Always one to champion the sex positive, I have been a follower of the Kinkly website since I launched Voluptasse several years ago. For those who haven’t heard of them, Kinkly are one of the ‘go to’ websites for anything you need to know about sex. They also have the much coveted Sex Top Bloggers list, in which they showcase some of the world’s best loved sex bloggers and writers (yes I am on it, I have checked).
By Wilf3564: Decoding your Kink is a very sex-positive and inclusive book that does not discriminate between cultural, religious or kink/fetish flavours. Galen states that he has lived through the trials and tribulations of confronting his own kink and bringing it into his everyday life and consequently into the open.
By Cara Sutra: The Objects of Desire book (compiled by Rita Catinella Orrell & Jason Scuderi) is a heavyweight tome presented in glorious full colour. It's full to bursting with beautiful photography of sex toys and articles about various erotic objets d’art. If I didn't have kids, this would definitely be one of my favourite coffee table books.
By Kerrie Lacey Would it be ‘teach yourself how to be a Femdom’ full of tips and hints from those in the know? I was half hoping it would be, because I show a little too much concern for my sub when trying to be dominating, which rather negates things I’m told. The book starts with an encounter between the books initial protagonist Venecia and an, at that point unnamed man. I say initial protagonist as I feel this changes as the story moves on.
By Carrie I received Squirt School: The Book in electronic form although it's also available as paperback/hard copy if you prefer. I was happy to be able to take this with me to read when out an about without anyone knowing I was improving my knowledge around squirting. It made very inspiring reading having a coffee after shopping!
By kmlewis: I am so glad I received this book (full title: As Kinky as You Wanna Be: Your Guide to Safe, Sane and Smart BDSM). I have read other non-fiction books and found them hard to follow and often times would not finish. I would buy the audio version, if one existed, and listen to it and often times missing crucial information due to wandering.
Touching the Essentials is a one-of-a-kind, step-by-step guide to the “how-to, when-to and what-to” of sex. The book offers a witty, but at the same time informative, purposely unthreatening description of the nitty-gritty aspects of sexual interaction that often overwhelm the inquisitive and inexperienced at the start of their path without allowing them to reach the ecstatic euphoria Eastern methods are known to induce.
By Big Kinky BBW Thanks to Cara Sutra for letting me do this review; I struggle to orgasm due to my medication so I thought this would be ideal for me to try. I was quite excited to try it and the first time I tried it I had had a couple of glasses of wine and although I chuckled every time the word vibration was said it did the trick and I came. The man has such a lovely voice I could listen to him reading my shopping list, I tried this several times and only orgasmed the first time however it does get me in the mood. My only criticism would be the use of the word “mons” as I have no idea what they are so that does take my mind off sexual and into “oohhhh must go Google that”.
Dr Sadie Allison has done a fantastic job of communicating exactly what the clitoris is, where it is, why it’s important and how to handle it for maximum satisfaction of both partners in this handy guide book. It’s also presented in a fun and engaging lighthearted mystery format, as you can tell from the vibrant animation on the front cover. The illustrations within are sadly in black and white, but they are no less appealing and engaging. They accurately and clearly present the female form, sexual areas and also offer suggested positions for the best clitoral pleasure.
By Voluptasse As the owner of a sex toy business myself, I was particularly interested in Andy Isaacson’s anecdote into the life of the JimmyJane creator Ethan Imbodan. His struggles were fascinating, relatable and even featured a cameo from the famous rapper Snoop Dog. He talks about the desires of the company and the ethos behind the JimmyJane brand and the perils of working in an unregulated market. It explores the sexuality of women and the battle of a determined entrepreneur to penetrate the most complicated female organ, the brain.
By Angel R. Rivera / gypsylibrarian After the foreword and the introduction, the book includes 11 chapters plus a small epilogue ("50 Items for your toy bag." No, it is not all sex toys and whips) and an appendix (a further reading list). The 11 chapters are short and get to the point with good and reassuring advice. Communication is a big theme in the book, and Taormino provides essential advice to get communication going. This is a book I definitely recommend.
