This book was wonderful. Lewis writes for all the women with a girl on one arm, a boy on the other and a 7 layer cake on the counter. She takes big bites and savors them, and lives to write about it. A former sex-worker who has a delicious way with words, Lewis has given us a book that is part memoir, part advice column, and part scrumptious cookbook. She embraces her humanity in a beautiful way, and celebrates all manner of decadent things. Sex-positive but interestingly judgmental of the clients she used to service- understandable, from the descriptions. It's also fascinating to see how compartmentalized her sex life was when she was working in the trade. Well-written, funny, loving and wry. It'll make you hungry for more.

Not for the faint of heart or those who eschew Anglo-Saxon terms for genitalia.
