Practice makes perfect!

Everyone knows sex in a long-term relationship can get stale sometimes. But isn't the same true for masturbation? Just like a familiar sexual relationship, where you fall into a pattern using the same moves and positions, masturbation can become routine and frankly boring.

I wish someone had given me this book when I was in my teens! This book is so easy to read, and is very helpful for women of any age or sexual experience. Jansen de-bunks myths and helps women understand their bodies to enhance their sexual pleasure, all in a fun and non-judgmental way. This book is full of ideas to improve one's sex-life, whether one has a partner or not, or has trouble reaching orgasm or not. A must read!

One of the great perks about building a life around passion is getting my hands on a variety of tools to help normal people just like you and I live more passionate lives. When I learned that the owner of my favorite sex-positive boutique in Toronto had published her first book, and that it was about masturbation, I was very excited to get my hands on it, so to speak. Sex Yourself is such a great title, isn't it? A call to action like that leaves little room for excuses, and it's the kind of ...more

Amazing information!

I just finished reading your book and I loved it. I learned more reading your book than I thought I would and can't wait to put some of it into practice! Thank you.

P.S. Do you have a foot fetish? You had a lot of pictures of feet. Some people hate feet. I think they believe they are dirty. But that's what soap and water does. I love my feet

Some things are very helpful and other information is inaccurate. The books language is easy enough to understand and grasp for the most part, the layout is a little distracting and sometimes hard to follow.

SO informative, even for someone who's already had a lot of experience in sex ed! Essential for anyone with a vulva or interested in pleasuring someone who has one.

I think I'm gonna have to buy my own copy, that's what. I only wish I could have read it when I was a teenager/young adult, but it's never too late to learn!

If you reach midlife and need a 100+ page book to help you masterbate, perhaps its time to give it up and let someone else do the job for you. Skimmed a few pages and put it down after laughing at how the suggestions were clearly oriented for women who clearly lack imagination.

With Sex Yourself, Carlyle Jansen has written a sex positive book written in an accessible, fun, and very informative way. A fun and frank read, it is ideal for those just starting this exploration, but still with lots for tips and tricks for old pros to pick up. Providing details about anatomy, information about sex toys, lube, techniques, and positions this book will go a long way to improve your self life, either solo or partnered. I was not a fan of the layout of the book, but this was a ...more
