Naked Reader Book Club Discussion: GIRLS ON TOP and THE SMART GIRL'S GUIDE TO THE G-SPOT (7-11 PM EST)

Kristina Wright Kristina Wright
Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club! I'm your book club moderator Kristina Wright and I'm putting on my Wonder Woman cape and boots so we can talk about power-- Girl Power, that is! September is Girl Power month in the book club and tonight's discussion is going to make you feel sensually and intellectually empowered! Tonight we tackle female sexual pleasure in fantasy and reality with Violet Blue's scorching hot erotica anthology Girls On Top and her fabulous nonfiction guide The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot.


Girls On Top: Explicit Erotica For Women
Edited by Violet Blue

When lust and desire take control, all bets are off.

Violet Blue is back with another blazing hot set of erotica shorts by women, for women. This commanding collection shows how exciting life can be when a woman takes control of her own pleasure, as in S.J. Frost's "Quarterbacking," an inspiring tale of first-time girl-on-top domination. Foot fetishism and saucy teasing meet in Elizabeth Colvin's "High Heels." B.J. Franklin's portrayal of gripping group sex in "The Hostage" and the delectable exhibitionism in Virgie Tovar's "New York Peep Show" feature women who break all the rules to get off. Filled with surprises, unexpected twists (with nipple clamps and otherwise), and arousing confessionals, Girls on Top confirms that anything is possible when a girl wants, takes, and gets.

The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot

Violet Blue

It's not a myth, it's a miracle, the G-spot, that powerhouse of female orgasm. With wit and panache, sex educator and best-selling writer Violet Blue helps readers master the sexual alphabet through G. Beginning with an anatomical guide and incorporating suggestions for couple-play, positions, toys, and safer sex, The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot will lead to thrilling new sensations and earth-shaking, bed-breaking, gale force climaxes. As with all her sex guides, Violet includes sections on further reading and recommended videos and DVDs, and practical information on toys and toy shopping. Any girl can unleash her own awesome orgasmic superpower with The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot.

So, let's talk about female sexual empowerment. What makes a woman sexually empowered-- is it claiming her kinks without shame? Taking charge of a sexual situation? Learning how to sexually pleasure herself and then teaching her lover? What does the phrase "girl on top" mean to you? Is it a position, an attitude, a force of nature? Women take charge of their sexuality in Girls On Top, not just by being sexually dominant-- which they are-- but also by going after their wildest fantasies. What stories in this collection do you think demonstrate your concept of female empowerment?

In The Smart Girl's Guide to the G-Spot the controversial G-spot is explored: what it is, where it is, how to achieve orgasmic bliss from it. Is the G-spot orgasm the holy grail of sexual empowerment? If not, what do you think signifies the ultimate in female sexual liberation? Or is that a silly question and all sex is good sex?

Finally, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the use of "girl" as interchangeable for "woman" in these book titles. Many erotica and sexuality titles come under fire for the use of the word. Do you think Women On Top and The Smart Woman's Guide to the G-Spot would better represent the idea of empowerment in these particular books? Does it matter?

As always, you are invited to participate in the discussion whether you've read the books or not. Drop in and tell us what "girl power" means to you! It promises to be a lively discussion about books, sexual positions, orgasms and all aspects of female sexual empowerment and dominance. Welcome to the club! (Wonder Woman cape and boots are entirely optional!)

For me it means many things: Knowing what I like and not being afraid to ask for it or (at times) insist on it. It means being comfortable with my own sexual choices and not being caught up in our culture's model of what a "proper" woman likes when it comes to sex. There's a few more ideas the term brings to mind too, but that's a lot of it.

I think female sexual empowerment is all of those things that you named. In the past I feel like sex was just viewed as a way to procreate. Women might've just been laying there and taking whatever their man gave them and keeping their frustrations to themselves. Men were the ones saying what they wanted and how they wanted it done. A woman who isn't ashamed to say what she likes and what she wants to try without worry of being deemed a slut is empowering. A bonus for me would be to voice her desires as blunt and vulgar as she wanted them to come out of her mouth lol. Men, for the most part, have no problem telling their lover to suck what and lick where.

I like that: "being comfortable with my own sexual choices and not being caught up in our culture's model." Nicely worded. I think many of the Cleis Press anthologies embody this ideal and certainly the female characters in Girl On Top. Did you have a chance to read the book and, if you did, were there any stories that struck you as particularly "empowering?"

Unfortunately I haven't gotten to read it yet, so I'm hoping to hear more about it here. It does seem like something I would enjoy reading though.

So a woman's sexual empowerment comes from asserting her needs? If you haven't already, you're certainly going to love Girl On Top!

Yup, I love it. Quarterbacking spoke to me a lot. I like how Hannah said she couldn't enter another marriage if Collin wasn't willing to surrender himself to her. She asked for something and she got it.

My feelings about it run along similar lines. As a mother (and a single one at that) I get messages from many sources on how I should behave "mom-like" rather than as a sexual human being. There is this great fear that your child finding out that you have sex will somehow damage them.

I know what you mean, and I always hated getting that attitude from people when our son was young. Funny enough, in spite of the fact that we didn't go the complete sterile prude route in raising him, the guy isn't damaged at all now

That's a good point, Laurel. While women have gained a lot of ground in out culture in terms of sexual empowerment, there is still something about being a mom that conflicts with uninhibited sexuality in our society. (Trying to remember if any of the Girl On Top stories featured a maternal figure.)

I think it's because so many people still think of women enjoying sex as a negative thing, and they think moms should be above that. It sends a really bad message to the kids when you think about it; just reinforces the "sex for procreation only" blah blah.

Oooh, S.J. Frost's "Quarterbacking" was wonderful. I loved the sexual tension as she took control of the situation.
