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 :)

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.

Phenomenal book which covers every single issue of being lesbian, considers every aspect of what it means to be a lesbian and how that it expressed, physically, emotionally and sexually, eye opening and incredibly helpful!

The written content of the book is really very good and covers just about anything you could possibly want to know, I learned so much that I thought I already had a good idea about but clearly not! The only thing that let this book down for me was the lack of pictures - they were all simple hand drawn pictures which just didn't work for me. That said I would still recommend this book.

I take my hat off to Felice Newman for writing a book that is uplifting, informative and - all in all - is really positive about women enjoying and exploring their sexuality. Her style is relaxed and she knows what she's talking about. Good for beginners and also for those who think they've already got the t-shirt - there's always more to explore and learn (and enjoy) about yourself and you sexuality.

I started reading it enthusiastically thinking that I would really learn something of real practical value. I didn't.

I bought this for a friend who'd recently come out. She loved it. It's apparently very informative.
