This review is a little bit different than my others. It’s a review of a book, not a sex toy, so bear in mind when reading, there won’t be any mention of whirling parts or battery compartments. It’s a book people.
I picked up Dorian Solot & Marshall Miller’s book I Love Female Orgasm a number of years ago. I was
browsing through the “Sexual Health” section of my local Major-Chain-Bookstore and when I spotted this gem. I’ll be honest, it was the cover that drew me in. “I Love Female Orgasm” it boldly proclaims. “Well,” I though, “who doesn’t?”
I sat down and flipped through some of the pages, browsing charts and diagrams and reading a few paragraphs here and there. In the introduction, Dorian Solot mentions that she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 26. She says what saved her life was the fact that she found the lump very early, and attributed that to the fact that she was comfortable touching her body and her breasts.
Being comfortable and confident in her sexuality literally saved her life. When I read that, I knew that I had to have this book. I wanted it badly enough that I took it up to the counter of the Major-Chain-Bookstore (where my dad is a frequent patron) and purchased it on the spot.
The book is basically a how-to manual for having an orgasm. It has sections about using fingers, tongues, penises and toys. It gives you all the information you could want about oral and anal sex and about how to find and utilize your g-spot. And all throughout it has definitions (for example, what exactly is “female ejaculation”?), tips, and tricks.
One thing I particularly love is that the book is constantly stressing important information about communication and safe sex. There’s an entire chapter about condoms and birth-control including a very helpful chart that gives quick facts about different types of protection.
Another thing I loved is that unlike many sex guides out there, this book does not assume that if you are female you must be in a relationship with a male. I Love Female Orgasm is very inclusive, and has an entire chapter dedicated to LGBTQ issues (“Coming with Pride: Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Straight-but-Adventurous Orgasms”).
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of female orgasms. It’s very well-organized and has a wonderful index that is very easy to use. The first time I read this book I read it cover to cover and had a blast doing so. I’ve picked it up many times since then to get specific information about a topic that I was interested in at the time. The way that the book is arranged and set up makes it very easy to do that. For example, if you are interested in learning more about the g-spot you can just head to that chapter, or poke around in the index.
Finally, and I feel that this has to be said, this book (while extremely entertaining) is a reference book, and is meant to be used as such – which means that (thankfully) the authors do not use cutesy language in their book (though they invite you to if you’d like).
I paid $15.99 for this book, and I can promise you that it was worth it!
I Love Female Orgasm is a well-organized reference manual for orgasms. It will take you through the basics of female anatomy and teach you everything you need to know about how to have an orgasm. It also provides information about a variety of other topics, including: safe sex, sex toys, oral sex, and anal sex. The book is a must have for any true lover of female orgasms.
This book talks about the history of the dildo, what’s not to love?
