About author

Clit-ology is written by Jordan LaRousse and Samantha Sade. It was published in 2011 by Quiver Books in the USA. The authors are co-owners and co-editors of a website called Oysters & Chocolate which is said to be (according to the back cover) a premier online magazine for women's erotica. They feature sex-advice columns, weekly emails, and product reviews as well as erotica. The also wrote a book called Penis Genius.

The writing style is fun in that they don't stick to the clinical terms. In fact, one of the first things you read when opening the table of contents is "Introduction: Why this is the must-read book for men who want pussy". They do have a blurb about why they use dirty words and it all comes down to the fact that it is what people do in real life.

I personally have never been to the site, until now, nor have heard of these authors before.

Content / Style / Audience

This book covers a wide variety of topics from the emotional side of sex, to anal, to toys. There is even a chapter dedicated to keeping things fun during pregnancy. Over 176 pages there are 11 chapters, Endnotes, Acknowledgements, and About the Authors. The chapters are as follows:

Chapter 1: Vulvanatomy
Chapter 2: The Big O
Chapter 3: Finger Fun
Chapter 4: Licking the Cunny
Chapter 5: Fun With Dick
Chapter 6: And Anal
Chapter 7: Her Other Buttons
Chapter 8: Oh Boy, Let's Talk Toys!
Chapter 9: Her Brain on Sex
Chapter 10: Her Libido
Chapter 11: Big-Bellied Mamas

Given the title, I truly expected this not to be your run of the mill sex book. I was thinking something crazy like the science of the clit, what makes it tick (twitch even). In reality, it was just more of a how to, positions, spicing things up, etc... It is written from the point of view of what a man should know about how a woman works. It can be good for the guy that thinks he knows it all (but really doesn't) or, he who doesn't know that much when it comes to pleasing his woman and wants to learn more.

I can personally say I did not learn anything new reading it. But for people that have questions about different things like finding the G-spot, or introducing anal or toys into the bedroom, it is a fun, easy read that will help with these situations. In fact, I have even had a few friends browse it while visiting to get more info on a few different topics.

Design

This book is rather big - much bigger then I thought it would be. Like a coffee table book, sort of, if you are down with having a book that reads Clit-ology sitting on your table. It is soft covered and the binding is good. It would take a lot of abuse to have it fall apart.

All the pages are high gloss and thick. The photos are tasteful demonstrating various positions and have very light nudity. The only show breasts, no other bits show. They carry through the book with many graphs and pie charts of statistics they took from readers from their website. I did find the font to be rather small for the size of the book.

Personal comments

As mentioned above, I did not learn anything new. That is not to say this is a horrible book. It is certainly more of the same (that you would find in any other book of sex). But for a couple that is trying to learn more, it is a great place to start. The pictures and tips give great ideas, and for that couple that are trying to spice things up, I would highly recommend it.

    I love finding new how-to sex books for my growing library, but it's starting to get difficult to find ones that are more than just the same old stuff in so many other books of this genre. Looks like I'll be passing on this one; thanks for the useful review!
