V is for Vagina

The content was well written and engaging. But for the more self aware person, as far as knowing your body and what works for you to achieve orgasm, I am not sure you will find anything worthwhile in this book; unless you like a bit of light reading on Greek mythology, and ancient cultural beliefs, regarding goddess's and sexuality. It is a book that just didn’t really enlighten me at all, perhaps for others it may but not this girl.

The Goddess Orgasm by Eve Marx is a nifty wee book filled with lots of basic information. It is more suited to a woman who wants to get to know her body, and her orgasms more intimately. It’s a relaxed informative approach to discovering how to feel like a sexy goddess, and how to find out what works for you to achieve those wonderful orgasms that can allude many.

It is a softcover book consisting of 221 pages of information, gathered through countless interviews from men and women who share their experiences; and through the author's own personal take, as well as light research, and a questionnaire which is included in the back of the book itself.

The Goddess Orgasm covers topics such as enhancing your body confidence, encouraging ways to help yourself feel more sexy, masturbation and exploring your body, learning what feels good to you, sex with partners, tips on communicating your needs, and the things that get you all hot under the collar. It also covers a brief section on Tantric techniques that can help enhance orgasm, as well as a look at different types of sex toys that can be fun to explore.

For someone who has trouble achieving orgasm, this book may well help you to discover new ways to explore your own sexuality. It is geared more towards the female reader but men may also find this an interesting resource to understand how women can do things to make themselves feel more sexy, and achieve orgasm as well. If a partner is having difficulties with achieving orgasm, it may well be a book you can both read.

Personally the book really didn't impress me at all; to the point I kept putting it down and not wanting to finish it. I slugged through it all and the wee blurb at the end, from the author, confirmed as to why I found it tedious and some of the information misguided.

"I based my writing on ideas that developed from my own head and my own personal experiences, which, um, have been myriad."

Some of the information presented in the book regarding sexual health and menstruation, were not backed up properly by medical information. I found this to be an unimpressive part of the book.
Follow-up commentary
I have lent the book to another friend who is sex positive, and also is a blogger who does reviews for various places. She's not impressed either, and finding quite a bit of the information regarding sex during menstruation poppycock and unfounded. She's also a Greek Mythology enthusiast and has informed me that some of the mythological references contained within the book are also way off track. In saying that though I still believe the book is of some use to those who want to explore their sexuality and need a good starting base but not to take the words contained within the book as the "only" way to go about discovering one's body and orgasms. I still don't recommend the book to those who are more in tune with their own sexuality and orgasms.

    I would definitely skip this one personally based on what you said about it and the blurb at the end of the book makes me want to steer clear as well, lol.

    Good review doll. Xo

    Thanks hun. It's a book I would buy for someone needing ideas on orgasms and discovering one's body but not for the seasoned woman who knows how to reach orgasm easily. x

    From the title, I would have assumed it was a more advanced or a more spiritual approach to orgasm. And inaccurate medical and mythological references? No thanks! Thanks for the warning and the great reveiw.

    I thought it was too but was sadly disappointed. It's more suited to a teenager. But yes inaccurate advice makes me even more wary.
