really liked it

** spoiler alert ** Great read. Not your garden variety memoir, and it was interesting to hear from such a young writer.. I learned more about butt plugs and bondage than I ever thought I would want to know.. then I went ahead a listened to the Fresh Air Episode, and Melissa Febos sounds like a cool chick.. maaaaybe a little pretentious.. but she's already a college professor before the age of 30, so I suppose one can't hate.


Thought the end of the book was a little rushed. She could've had ended it a little earlier without going too far into her new relationship.

Also, I thought she could have gone a little further into her addiction and recovery. It was pretty harsh as it was.. but maybe because it was the whole heroine thing, I supposed I was hoping for a little more gritty withdrawal symptoms.
