The Whole Lesbian Sex Book: A Passionate Guide for All of Us

by Felice Newman

The Whole Lesbian Sex Book, was the first-ever sex guide to offer information and encouragement for all women who desire women — lesbian, bisexual, butch, femme, androgynous, and transgender. First published in 1999, it's been lauded for its thoroughness, enthusiastic tone, and creative, nonjudgmental approach to lesbian sex in all its rich variety. (Library Journal lamented, "Why can't more heterosexual sex manuals be this good?") Now, five years later, sex educator Felice Newman has completely updated this classic guide. There is new information throughout, up-to-date research, fresh quotes from women who share their real-world experiences, a greatly expanded resource guide, new illustrations, and an entire new chapter on sex and partnership.

Topics include:
Where to find sex partners (and how to talk to your lovers about sex).
Discovering your desires and fantasies.
How to have all the orgasms you desire—G-spot orgasms, multiple orgasms, extended orgasms, and ejaculation.
Why communication is the most important erotic skill you can offer your partners.
How masturbation can improve your sex life.
Expert how-to information on cunnilingus, anal sex, vaginal fisting, and other favorite lesbian sex techniques.
How to choose vibrators, dildos, and harnesses, and get the most out of your sex toys.
And much more.
