About author

Yvonne K. Fulbright has supplied an engaging, witty, informative and mature "How to Guide" for women on giving oral pleasure. The PhD author of "The Best ORAL SEX Ever, Her Guide to Going Down" has a master's degree in human sexuality education, is a sexologist and relationship expert and a Certified Sex Educator through the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists.

It isn't the degrees and letters after her name that make this a great book, its the everyday, common people approach and feel of her writing that make this such an easy and engaging book to read, that you wont even notice how much you are learning.

Content / Style / Audience

This book is predominantly aimed at women, through it would work for anyone that identifies as a female gender person or anyone that simply loves giving head. The writing is 100% heterosexual but can the basic ideas can be related to homosexual or transsexual relationships for people.

It has limited stereotypical "in love" couples with mutual respect and understanding terms and ideas. Fulbright, states in the introduction that the book "is intended for lovers looking for erotic ideas, couples hoping to deal with their oral sex issues, and women seeking to make oral sex more palpable or more of a priority in their passion pursuits."

As I mentioned before this is a well written book, not overly technical in its terms and language, which has the allowed the book to be informative but also witty and engaging. The whole feel of the book has been personalized with quotes from real people in regards to the content, this parts, humorously named "Rolls of the tongue" bring the reader in to a related, real life situation, passion or experience.

While covering the basic "How To" oral sex tips and techniques, the book also offers strategies to over come any barriers or concerns, the book also looks at realistic erotic expectations, information and skills for looking after the sexual health of both parties, how to eroticize oral sex and how to get both you and your partner off, information on potential multiple male orgasms and referrals for more information.

The main chapters to take note of are chapters 3 - 6.

Chapter 3 - is the positions chapter, which covers everything from the classic, laying position to the extreme Standing 69. Each position includes, why couples like it, tips and variations.

Chapter 4 - looks at foreplay for oral sex, which may seem a bit odd, "foreplay for foreplay" but this focusing on building up the sense and taking your time to simple enjoy the intimate moment that is oral sex without rushing to any preset conclusion.

Chapter 5 - tips and techniques for those that may have been around the block a little when in comes to going down. Like tongue Kung Fu or putting a condom on with your mouth.

Chapter 6 - looks at oral sex accessories and enhancements. Cock rings and sleeves, anal plugs and beads to tongue vibe.

This is a girly looking book; pink, purple and white colours are very noticeable on the front cover and spine, and the tanned 6 pack on the front is rather nice to look at but also very noticeable. The large bold heading isn't discreet in appearance and the title of the book can be read both on the cover and spine, so don't think about sitting it on the coffee table or in the bookcase in the spare room.

This is a soft cover book, 7 1/2" high, 5 1/2" wide and 1/2" deep. Its over 180 pages jam packed with oral sex heaven. The pages are thicker then what you might find in a soft cover fiction book from the book shop through they are still prone to getting dog eared.

The colour scheme continues through out the book with pink headings and boxes containing quick and quirky ideas and facts. The drawings and diagrams are simple line sketches, that provide enough detail without being distracting.

The layout is clean and doesn't confuse the reader, the pages, while containing a large amount of information don't come across as text heavy and it's easy to follow content will have you up to Chapter 6 before you know it.

Personal comments

I already have friends asking to borrow this book after I have finished it. Shh, don't tell but I am going to read it again before I hand it over. Its not because they know the author or have heard of the book before, its because I can't say enough good things about it and keep pushing them to read it.

It is a mature and informative book that branches out pasted the simple, repetitive tips given in women's magazines. It looks at how women can give great oral sex, that is also pleasure for them, how to communicate and express your wants, desires, concerns and ideas to you partner and how to give and get the best experience possible.

While there a numerous books out there on how to give great oral sex, I doubt they are done with as much knowledge, maturity, wit and enthusiasm as this one.

This box arrived the same day my mother and sister did for Christmas, so I knew I was going to have to put reading it on hold. After I got home from the post office, I took the book to my bedroom as discreetly as possible and took stock of my packages. As this is my review assignment from EF, I grabbed this one and decided to read the introduction to see what I was getting myself in for after everyone had left.

Before I knew it my husband was knocking on our bedroom door, asking what I was doing, it was the I realized I was up to chapter 4 and it had been over an hour that I had hidden away in our bedroom while my mum and sister entertained themselves.

Later that afternoon, find a spare extension cord I moved the beside lamp from my husbands side of the bed to mine. There was no way I was going to stop reading this book after I had only just started. In only a few more nights I had the book completely finish and I was ready to practice what I learnt.

To turn a very long and pleasurable story short, my husband is again very grateful and satisfied that I have found EF.

    I have had a lot of blowjobs, all good and all different. I could see a guide to cunnilingus, but not fellatio.

    Thanks for the review, I loved the humorous aspect of its arrival on the same day as your family. That could have led to an awkward holiday moment.
