Funny readable significant and empowering

This unassuming little book is an impressive guide to how to take responsibility for intimate relationships and our sexual selves. It says everything I wish I had told my daughters and never did. I am recommending it to clients, friends and family daily...

Life changing, liberating and empowering

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 | Review by: kimstories

This book is bylined as ĎAdventures in love and sexí and while it is that, it is so much more. It really is adventures in you; adventures and voyages. Ms Black is a sex columnist who finally, thank everything you believe in, decided to write a book. ďA sex columnist?Ē I hear you say, shocked and slightly titillated (if you were honest). ďWe donít really need another book about all that!Ē Oh yes we do. And this is the book we need. This is the book every single woman needs, and probably quite a few men too. Itís the big sister we never had, even if we had a big sister. Itís the friend we can trust who knows more than we do but never makes us feel stupid. Itís the slightly crazy aunt we adore because she makes it okay to say stuff and ask questions, and she tells us the truth. Because this book is not just about sex and what to do, how to do it and where to find people to do it with. Itís about finding out who you are, what you really truly want and need, and then being empowered enough to go ask for it. It is chocful of information and opinion as well as experience. Ms Black is not some expert tut tutting at you for not knowing stuff, but rather your mate sitting around a dinner table admitting what she didnít know and telling you how she gained the knowledge. She shows you the way, she doesnít drag you down the path. One of the things I took from this book is the idea that we should stop speaking of our sex lives as though they are separate from our actual lives. As Ms Black says, itís your life and how you choose to express yourself sexually. They are not separate things, one of which is active at a time. If one aspect of our lives is not healthy, you can be sure all aspects will be affected. Ms Black takes womenís sexuality out of the basement cupboard of shame and has created a space where women, and men, can learn, grow and develop as rounded, satisfied sexual being. She simply and succinctly reminds us that we are going to be sexual creatures, and be sexually active Ė we may as well do it the right way for each of us. Itís too fundamental an aspect of life to screw up really. The line ĎWe do the best we can with what we haveí is used in this book more than once. There is no judgement is what anyone chooses to do, but what Ms Black is doing here is making sure that we all have more, know more, believe more, so that we can better make decisions about what we do. And that has to be a good thing for the whole world. The only problem I have with this book is that I didnít have it as a 20 year old when I set off into the sexual wonderland. I made so many crappy decisions and did so many stupid things because I just didnít know. Every single responsible loving mother who can admit their daughter will be a sexual being one day should get this book for her. In fact, every woman should read this book and then pass it on to the men they love, be they brothers, lovers, friends. Life changing, liberating and empowering Ė a wonderful book.

I loved this book. I read it in less than 48 hours and can't wait to share it with my friends. There is so much for each of us as we do our best to navigate this crazy world of relating to other humans beings.

Essential reading for everyone

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 | Review by: Melissa A

I loved this book and think EVERYBODY should read it. It's smart, honest and insightful. I wish I had had this book as a young adult it would have helped opened my eyes and allowed me to have perhaps made more informed choices. Buy it, read it and encourage as many people as possible to do the same.
