Not such a "Super" book

Supersex by Tracey Cox is a book that offers various tips, suggestions, and information about sexual activities. It includes topics such as foreplay and oral sex and also discusses some myths about certain behaviors. Although it covers all these areas, some of the information seems to be opinion and this book is best for those who are true beginners to sex in general (those who are not beginners may not learn much).
Nice photographs
Some good tips/info
Not all the information is accurate/some information is opinion
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
Supersex is written by Tracey Cox who has written many other educational books about sex and relationships. I have read a couple of her books and found them to be pretty interesting and informative. However, I feel as if some of her books are best for times when there is a specific topic you are interested in. This one covers various areas of sexual activity and would be best for beginners or those who are looking for a few tips (just be sure to read this one with a careful eye).

This book is 190 pages and set up in different sections: Please, Tease, The Moan Zone, Hot & Heavy, Soft Spots, Flesh Fest, and Supersexpert. If you can't tell by the titles of the sections, this book was written to help individuals and couples discover more about the basics of having "super" sex. The information in this book may already be known to someone who has read a book or two on this topic area.

In the Please section the reader gets information about the "hot spots" of men and women and also some techniques for touching each area. In the Tease chapter the author discusses different "ways" to gauge how sensual and sexual a man is (not necessarily true information), stripping tips, trends, and other information on body language. The Moan Zone portion of the book really gets into tips for specific sexual acts like oral sex, "hand" sex, and the sexual response cycle. Hot & Heavy discusses myths/facts, turn ons, tips, ways to make sure the female has an orgasm, and different positions. Soft Spots talks about foreplay (maybe this order should be changed), teasing, issues with differences in sex drive in a relationship, and answers to questions that people may be embarrassed to ask. Flesh Fest mentions a bit about SOME fetishes and ways to find and perfect your "signature sex move". The last section of the book , SuperSexpert, is basically a way to put some of the other sections together and also (very little)info about sex toys and some stories from real couples.

I should mention that I listed the main topics that are included in each section, but there are also other things woven throughout such as myths about penis size and ways to "tell" whether someone will be more likely to cheat or not (this is mainly focused on aspects of males).

There are a good amount of pictures in this book that are pretty nice. I know I liked all of the photographs that were included with all of the information (and all the opinion). The cover (both front and back) shows a naked couple intertwined. The title is also pretty large on the front. I would say this is definitely not discreet, but could make a fun coffee table book if you have friends who enjoy hotter topics.
I'll admit, when I bought this book I was either 17 or 18 and didn't have as much knowledge about sex as I do now. Back then I thought this was an interesting book and my friends and I would read sections of it when we were hanging out in my dorm room (yeah we were weird like that lol). Now as I have gone through it a few more times I see that there are a lot of things that don't make sense and that are opinion rather than information. For example how to "tell" whether a man is good in bed is a bunch of crap, in my opinion, as well as certain characteristics of men that tell whether they are cheaters (i.e ball/penis size) are a little ridiculous as well. Underneath all of that there are some facts and also some suggestions for ways to make your sex life better that may be good for beginners or those interested in trying something different. The only thing I would worry about is whether someone new to sex or to relationships takes all of this information at face value. Although it is not my favorite place to get information from, I will keep this book around for when I want to look at a different position or find new ways to tease a partner.

    ha! great review! the cover picture for the book reminded me that I actually have this and I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment!
  • Ms. Spice
    thanks for the awesome review
  • Shellz31
    I quite like the cover. Being that I'm not a big reader, doubt I'd read this one.

    Great review
  • Ivy Wilde
    Very informative review. Though if it has such blatant mis-information in it, I'm surprised you gave it 3 stars. I tend to be much more critical.
  • Eva Schwaltz
    Great review, thanks.
  • MeliPixie
    Wonderful review. I find it hard to believe a place like Eden, all about sexual well-being, would even sell a book with such misinformation and opinion when it's supposed to be informative and instructional!

    Great work on the review

    @Kake- I figured I wasn't the only one who felt this way about this book lol Thanks for reading.

    @Ms. Spice- Thanks for the comment!

    @Shellz31- This one might work for you if you don't plan on reading it, it has some nice pictures lol

    @Ivy Wilde- I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 because there are some things that are interesting to read about in there and when I first read it I found it more interesting, so my rating was kind of balancing now and then. Thank you for the comment

    @schwaltze- Thank you!

    @MeliPixie- Thanks for the comment I think there is some good information in here mixed in with the opinion, and the first time I read it I thought it was fairly helpful, so I can see why Eden might keep it around for some people.

    @LostBoy988- Thanks
