Educational and Informative reviews
Real Live Nude Girl
Real Live Nude Girl is a well made, nicely put together chronicle style book that is focused on sex culture, gays, and exhibitionism. This book is more reading material for insight rather than eroticism. Although this piece was not a favorite of mine, it is still a well put together book that might be very interesting to a Sex Culture reader.
Well made, nice layout, appealing cover, well known author, chronicle style.

The Smart Girl's Guide to Porn
If you've already been watching porn for quiet some time then this book will likely have little to offer you. But if you're curious about what kind of porn is available, how to figure out what you'd like, where to find it, OR if you're a man who's trying to ease his female partner into the idea of watching porn, then read on.
Full of practical and useful info for the porn newbie.
Not much useful content for people who already watch porn.

The Smart Girl's Guide to Porn is a great, beginner-friendly book that deals with the different types of porn both on DVD as well as online. It offers a lot of detail and information to those who are looking to re-educate themselves or those who are just curious about porn.
Each chapter self-contained, modern book, great writing style.
May be more suited for beginners and may not offer much to those comfortable with porn.

This book provides a solid foundation for those new to porn. Violet Blue has written a thorough introduction to the industry with tips and tricks for finding porn you'll enjoy. Extremely useful for those not familiar with what's out there.
Lots of useful, basic information for porn searches.
Sometimes necessarily vague due to diverse readership.

I think that this book could be very helpful to someone who knows nothing about the adult industry and is just beginning to further explore their own sexuality.
Great resource list, written for women
Tried to cover too much

Superhotsex is a great book for couples who are looking to bring some excitement into their bedroom (or backseat). With beautiful photography and well written content, it's an easy read for both men and women, and if read together can lead to some wonderful conversations about fantasies and kinks. While not for the faint of heart this book isn't for those who "sleep on the edge" either. It's the perfect companion for those who want more from their bedroom but don't know how to get it.
Great for couples, beautiful photographs, well written
Not really same-sex couple friendly
Published:August 16, 2010
This book was not an exciting book for and didn't leave me wanting to read more. I had my expectations way up there for this book and hoped for more than what I got. What I got was techniques and tips that I already knew
Tasteful photos & helpful topics
Didn't learn anything new

This book will guide you through the journey of adding Tantra to your current sexuality. It's informative and written in a way so that you can go at your own pace.
Well written, engaging, no nonsense
Can be a heavy read
Published:July 30, 2010
A decent first book for curious newcomers to the bedroom. But despite informative writing and beautiful design, this book lacks somewhat in feeling and originality.
Beautiful photos and some first-hand testimonials
Somewhat ordinary and sterile tone
Published:July 15, 2010
While I feel this book would be a nice gift for a hetero (and relatively conservative and/or vanilla) couple for their wedding, or maybe for your parents, but as a student of sexology, I can't truly endorse it...It's very pretty though, really!

The One-Hour Orgasm
This book didn't rock my world nor did it give me a one hour orgasm. It is better seen as a guide to communication for heterosexual couples.

101 Nights of Grrreat Romance
If you want to re-ignite romance in your relationship, this book is a great way to do it. The ideas are all there for you and you can adapt them to fit your relationship perfectly. If you're just starting out in a relationship, this could still be a great resource, but it isn't really aimed at you.
Great ideas and reminders for re-learning (or just learning) to romance your spouse
Not a great choice for singles, young couples, or people who are already pretty romantic
Published:July 09, 2010
This book has a lot of great ideas you can do to spice up the romance in your relationship or just to increase excitement. It is easy to use and a lot of fun to read. Some ideas are less than appealing but the majority are worth giving a try so I gave this book 4 stars.
Lots of ideas, lots of variety, easy to use.
Some lame ideas, can get expensive.

How to Be a Bedroom Goddess
While a little short, this is the perfect book if you are interested in adding spirituality to your sexuality and want a beginner style book to see if it's your thing.
Fun and easy to understand
A bit short
Published:July 05, 2010
This book would be a great gift for a close friend or someone who is recently married because it's more flirty in nature than sexual. However, I wouldn't recommend this to someone who is looking to purchase this for themselves to spice up their sex life.
GREAT illustrations, flirty and fun, history lessons are unique
Sex tips aren't very helpful, book is 2/3 a history lesson
Published:July 01, 2010
How to Be a Bedroom Goddess is a real treat. It provides helpful nudges for those who aren't yet fully open (pardon the pun) to themselves or their partner.

Same Sex in the City
You'll buy it because of the catchy title, but you'll read it and pass it on because it's open, honest and it's something most women can relate to. So read If you’re newly out or still questioning – yes, this stuff does happen and if you’ve been out, proud and loving it forever, I know you can relate. For any woman who’s attracted to other women, read and enjoy this book - laugh, cry, reminisce, empathize, sympathize and relate, because it’s inevitable - but don’t take this book too seriously.
Aimed for Femme or lipstick lesbians.

This book is perfect for any individual who is looking to experiment with new toys. It's great for couples looking to improve or expand their collections. It touches on so many different subjects that it has something for everyone.
Great photos, easy to read, and fun
I wish I could touch on more toys and new items

The Bisexual's Guide to the Universe
This book is fun and entertaining, full of lists, quizzes, and humorous anecdotes about what being bisexual is supposedly all about. It may be good for someone who doesn't know anything about bisexuality to be introduced to it in a lighthearted way. However, those searching for more serious material or for real-life advice should look elsewhere.
Funny, lighthearted, intro to bisexuality
Not for those looking for serious answers or help
Published:June 08, 2010
A fun and interesting book about bisexuality and how to fit into the bipolar world we live in. A worthy investment if you want a laugh.
Fun, interesting and an easy read.
Beware of stereotyping and weird facts.

Female ejaculation and the G-spot
This book is a great read for women and their partners who want to experience female ejaculation. The history of female ejaculation is riveting. However, if you can already achieve this type of orgasm, the book won't give you any new info.
Great information for women hoping to achieve ejaculation.
Tries to pressure women into feeling they need female ejaculation to enjoy a healthy sex life.
Published:May 28, 2010
If you want to learn to squirt, by yourself or with a partner, this book will give you all the information you need to do so. The book covers not just female ejaculation but also how to increase the sensitivity of your g-spot.

Third Base Ain't What It Used To Be
The book provides info about sex and about talking with your children about it. It allows the reader to have their own opinions about sex and values when talking to children, but tries to get you to be realistic about them.
Very informative, from a sex ed teacher, allows parents to keep their views.
Doesn't always give clear cut and dry answers to questions.
Published:May 11, 2010
A great read about human sexuality to use either as an educator, parent, or interested individual in order to increase one's knowledge about topics like masturbation, Sexually Transmitted Infections, birth control, and safer sex.
Sex-positive, Informative, open-minded, easy to read, and funny
Some may believe that it is too liberal or open-minded,

The Book of Love
The Book of Love contains tons of information pertaining to every aspect of your relationship from dating, sex, kids, affairs, fantasies, and emotional bonds. However, if you are not in a male-female relationship, prepare for some disappointment in the photography.
Lots of pictures, Easy to read, TONS of information.
Only straight couples pictured, Expensive.
Published:May 11, 2010
If you're looking to keep the flame alive, The Book of Love can definitely help sparks fly. Read it with your partner and be ready to follow some effective and erotic advice.
Positive advice for couples, helpful photographs, clear formatting.
A little basic, non-diverse.

Anne Hooper's Ultimate Sex Positions
Ultimate Sex Positions includes over 100 positions that the average couple will be able to do. Each position includes a beautiful, full-color photo of the position being done, a title of the position, a tagline of what the position is useful for, text about why the position is pleasurable, and how the male/female can improve the position by doing something extra. This book provides sensual, tasteful photography of sex positions that will motivate many couples to try a new, adventurous position.
Beautiful pictures, extra features are educational, mentions positions the average couple could do.
Text doesn't explain how to do position, multiple pictures would be useful, cover isn't discreet.
Published:April 30, 2010
If you or someone you know is new to the art of lovemaking, this book is perfect. It's romantic, it's beautiful, it's just like sex should be. Granted the raunchy stuff is fun too, but the very basic element of lovemaking is love and sharing ones self with a partner. Though the more experienced may find the positions to be yesterdays news, perhaps a new bride who is still all full of lovy-dovy butterflies would find this book absolutely enchanting.
Beautiful and tasteful soft-core style photographs of positions, helpful hints, romantic overtones.
Positions may be old news for some.

Orgasms for Two
I really enjoyed this book, it is well written, has extremely useful information, easy to get into, and hard to put down. She tells about her real life experiences, and that makes it interesting.
Physical size was easy to hold, nicely organized, illustrations.

How to Be a Great Lover
"How to Be a Great Lover," is a very informative book with a slightly annoying tone. The author kind of gives the book a feel that if you don't please your lover right, he will hate you and you will be a terrible woman.
Lots of information
Kind of expensive
