Amazon Review

Cure for cancer? End to world hunger? What's left to do after the publication of Felice Newman's definitive guide to lesbian sex? Drawing on a wide range of published sources as well as her own notoriously graphic questionnaire circulated by e-mail--stunning mild-mannered office workers as it reeled across their computer screens--Newman has compiled an exhaustively thorough how-to guide for practices as exotic as play piercings and as pedestrian as oral sex. Along the way, she offers a primer in sexual politics and lesbian manners at the turn of the century. The S/M hanky code is laid out once and for all. There is even a (brief, happily brief) section on celibacy.

Highlights include descriptions of sex writer Tristan Taormino's private consultation with Betty Dodson, the author of Sex for One described as "the mother of masturbation": "I was so excited about this adventure that I nearly peed in my pants", recalled Taormino, "I was going to touch myself for Dr Betty Dodson!" (In the end, Newman reports, "Tristan earned an A+ in pelvic thrusting, but got a big 'needs improvement' in the breathing department".) Although it sometimes skimps on the details, especially with regard to women's health, The Whole Lesbian Sex Book is so rich, inclusive, and authoritative that it invites challenge. Now inventive lovers can ask each other: "Is it in Whole Lesbian?" --Regina Marler

Product Description

The Whole Lesbian Sex Book was the first-ever sex guide to offer information and encouragement for all women who desire women — lesbian, bisexual, butch, femme, androgynous, and transgender. First published in 1999, it’s been lauded for its thoroughness, enthusiastic tone, and creative, nonjudgmental approach to lesbian sex in all its rich variety. (Library Journal lamented, "Why can’t more heterosexual sex manuals be this good?") Now, five years later, sex educator Felice Newman has completely updated this classic guide. There is new information throughout, up-to-date research, fresh quotes from women who share their real-world experiences, a greatly expanded resource guide, new illustrations, and an entire new chapter on sex and partnership.

Topics include:
Where to find sex partners (and how to talk to your lovers about sex).
Discovering your desires and fantasies.
How to have all the orgasms you desire—G-spot orgasms, multiple orgasms, extended orgasms, and ejaculation.
Why communication is the most important erotic skill you can offer your partners.
How masturbation can improve your sex life.
Expert how-to information on cunnilingus, anal sex, vaginal fisting, and other favorite lesbian sex techniques.
How to choose vibrators, dildos, and harnesses, and get the most out of your sex toys.
And much more.

This book really covers everything about and around lesbian sexuality, but much of it could be just as useful to our straight sisters. The author is open-minded, non-judgemental and inclusionist. There are tons of resources, not just in the extensive appendix section, but also scattered references throughout the book. These are sound. Be it porn that is not misogynistic (yes! it does exist!), gender theory resources, or books and media on overcoming sexual trauma, the book would be a goldmine in an information jungle, if only for these.

The actual content however :) works its way from Desire/Fantasies, to Anatomy (with one of the best cross section diagrams I have seen), Orgasm, Emotional Health issues, Masturbation, Communication, Partners, Different types of sex, Gender theory, S&M, Sex Parties, Toys, and finally to Sexual Health.

Throughout the tone is light and friendly, and the book is simply life-affirming and joyous to read. Yes, this book centers on physical issues and the self, this is *not* erotica, and the cute black & white illustrations are not porn. This is a reference book that gives a great overview over the multi-faceted issue that is human female sexuality, specifically lesbian. Well worth it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars honest and real x 8 July 2010
By Becka
I actually bought this book as a joke, but once I sat down and started to read it, I was really impressed. My partner and I have been together for a year and she's only my 3nd girlfriend, so lets just say she's a bit more experienced than me. I found this book to be intimate without being too lovey dovey. It talks about sex how it should be, fun and natural. It really helped me relax and the tips are great and the author writes like a friend would speak to you. I would recommend anyone wanting to boost there sex life, gain a little confidence or learn some new tricks to buy this book. Well worth its money.

This was the first book I bought and read on lesbian sex and it will be my last because this book has taught me a lot over the years. I bought it six years ago and I still read it now again it`s great bedside book.

I have wanted to get this book for long time. I received it on second request as there was a problem with change of address. However, it arrived in mint condition and packaging was robust.
