Shelves: trans-focus
Let me tell you a bit about this book. To begin, when I was first asked to write a little bit for it about queer sexuality and trans women, I thought it’d probably be yet another instance of something written just with cis women in mind and one little section mentioning trans women. I was happy to be told that information for trans women would be included in every chapter of the book, freeing my writing to be more than just the basics. Even so, when I got my hands on the final copy I was amazed ...more

This book felt like what would happen if Your Body and You from the American Girl publishers and Erika Moen of the Oh Joy Sex Toy comic decided to write a book together. Topics range from how to pick up on signals of interest and flirt without being a creeper, to dealing with relationship drama (from both inside and outside of the relationship), to options for a whole slew of sex acts. It scales well, and regardless of one's sexual interest or gender identity there is something interesting to be ...more

So amazingly inclusive, for Trans Women, no matter what their anatomy is. I realize this is a book for ladies looking to love other ladies, but a huge part of the book is devoted to self-love too, which includes masturbation but is certainly not limited to it. I'd recommend this book to anyone who has a vulva or anyone who wants to spend some quality time with someone else's vulva. Straight guys included! Definitely a fantastic sex-ed book, that is so much more than sex-ed. ...more

THIS BOOK! You will wish you had this book when you were younger. You will wish your lover had this book when they were younger. You will want to fall to your knees and praise the collective wisdom of our queer, sex-positive elders contained in this book. Just read this book if you have sex with women please.

This was a great book! It was very inclusive and very detailed. I even learned a few tricks! I liked the additions of stories in between chapters and the illustrations. I particularly liked the comments coming from a wide range of people. It certainly makes you think that you're "normal" whatever your normal is! Good job! ...more

The ideal sex Ed book. Aimed at lesbians, but perfect for anyone with a vulva and anyone who is a woman/femme. Interesting, informative, extremely useful, easy to read.

Definitely the best sex-education book I've ever read or heard of. Ostensibly for women who have sex with women, but it's so inclusive and universal I would recommend it to anyone.
Apr 19, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I highly recommend reading this book! Even if the only girl you’re having sex with is yourself.

The first three chapters (communication, consent, anatomy) alone are super important for anyone of any identity, even for non sexual romantic relationships.

This book is full of information presented in an easy to read and relatable way. There’s even an erotic short story woven throughout.

I learned a lot, not just about how to have sex with women (cis, trans, nb, gnc, intersex), but also what I might

Shelves: nonfiction
A funny, frank, warm, well-researched and inclusive book on sex. Primarily sex with women, but the fluidity of that term and the acceptance of a wide range of partner sexual identities and anatomy means that this book has many useful things to teach no matter where you personally may fall on that range. It is the best of this genre I have read so far and the only one I would likely recommend to other people (from those that I've read). The examples were great, and the story thread kept things mo ...more

Wow! Finally the antidote to the now so present speed dating / seduction / whatever. It takes a human approach. I think More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory has much more information about relationships, even if it involves just two humans, but this is more fun, both in rythm and presentation. ...more

One of the most important books I've ever read. I highly recommend this to not only all stripes of queer women with an interest in sex, but straight women as well, or just about anyone. There is a lot of great information in this book that goes beyond "how to go down on your lesbian lover," such as safe sex, consent, identity, sexual integrity, love, and so on. ...more
Nina (Death, Books, and Tea)
Wide ranging, comprehensive basics. Loved the illustrations and the colour scheme. Also enjoyed the stories and the many perspectives, both from the 16 named contributors plus anonymous commenters.
So inclusive. So rad. This one deserves a permanent spot on your shelf.

Insanely good. I would recommend it to any of my clients.

Allison Moon takes a sex 101 manual and turns it into a funny, informative, creative road trip for anyone and everyone.

Yes, this book is about girl sex (which includes tons of tips and advice for trans bodies), but the advice ultimately works for all bodies and orientations.

The art by kd diamond is perfection. The fictional story that introduces each chapter is not only sweet and real, but it helps the reader confront some of their own assumptions about sex and relationships in a way that feel

I really loved this book. It's a 101 book, but it's really good at that — and it's conscientious, it's conscious of its limitations and how much it can offer the reader, and just generally I think it was put together really well and with an eye toward all inclusion possible. Would recommend to people of all ages having or hoping to have girl sex. ...more

I never knew there was so much about sex I didn't know! Incredibly enlightening and educational for anyone having sex with women, or while a woman. The tone was occasionally a bit progressiver-than-thou, and the story running through it didn't do anything for me, but the content is so informative that it's definitely worth reading. ...more
By far the most comprehensive queer sex book I've ever read! And authentically trans inclusive which makes it doubly useful. This is an essential read for any lesbian or bi woman.

My only criticism is I wish they had talked about the risks of oral HPV for queer women. Oh well, maybe in the next edition.
Zuzka Jakubkova
Great sex ed book on all the things girl-on-girl. Covers communication, consent, safety, technique, toys. Excellent section on transgender issues.

A must-read for any and all girls out there, written in easy-to-understand tone. #SexEdEssentials

Extensive and beautifully illustrated.

Picked this up after looking for a good book into female sexuality and it proved to be very useful. It's probably not going to be required reading in Sex Ed, but it should be.

Smart, funny, real sex advice for queer women of all kinds. Definitely worth a spot on the bookshelf.

Apparently I have never had a day of sex education in my life because this was extraordinarily eye-opening. I would recommend this for anyone of any age, gender or orientation.

This is an excellent book for anyone who has sex with women, no matter what their genitals look like.

An inspiringly frank and inclusive text for sex educators (and those looking to educate themselves). Well done!
Recommended to everyone, whether they identify as a girl or not.

“Creepy is being attached to an outcome. If you approach someone with the goal of sex, and hten find thins not going in that direction, you may try to steer things back to sex. This is creepy.” 3 likes
“Lesbian communities tend to be more intricate and intimate than other communities because of this
lack of attachment to outcomes. You might hit on a girl and find out she’s monogamously partnered,
but you end up falling in love with her ex, who’s also the nanny of her kids. This kind of thing isn’t
weird at all in many queer communities. So embrace the possibility of nuance in relationships. Flirt
and play with the intention of connection in its myriad ways, and odds are, you’ll find something that
works for both/all of you.”
