    32 Flavors and then some

    This is not the book for ¿vanilla¿ women. It attempts to be all-inclusive. In some ways, this is not a bad strategy, since it will attract many types of people, but to include everything is to inevitably offend someone, if not several people. For those ¿vanilla¿ women, and those who have relatively conservative sexual values, the first edition of this book, which is void of Rachel Kramer Bussel¿s ¿edgy¿ revisions is likely to be more appropriate. Unfortunately, the first edition is rare and considered outdated. My argument against several sections of the book is sure to ruffle some feathers because to please everyone is impossible, and this book is an example of that. It shows a rather large inconsistency¿it¿s hard for me to believe that the same book that says sex is sharing the deepest part of yourself with someone else and should be taken seriously can also suggest that casual sex can be ¿warm, enjoyable, and hot,¿ and that love or any other types of emotions don¿t need to be present. The book also condones drug use, and I would be surprised if that didn¿t offend many people. How strange it is that the same book that takes a neutral standpoint on illegal and what some see as immoral activities would actually tell a woman that she should not tell lies to her partner. If the authors want to take a stand on an issue such as honesty, why not take a stand on more important issues, or simply agree to not take any stands at all? As for the writing, it is at some points choppy and inconsistent, much like the messages. It reminds me of a game I played with friends in grade school in which one of us would start a story, write a paragraph or so, then pass it on to someone else who then adds to it with a completely different writing style and different view of the characters and plot. One might think in some places that this tactic was employed in writing this book, because different parts express different beliefs and, in addition dramatically different (and potentially offensive) vocabulary words. All of this may make the somewhat conservative person wonder, is this representative of every lesbian? Don¿t go into reading the book thinking this may be the case. I would that¿s highly unlikely, since only seven lesbians were interviewed for this book. That¿s nothing in the face of millions. Though I¿m disappointed and wondering at this stage if the vanilla sex book is a laughable oxymoron, I have things to say in the books defense. More than anything else, the randomly placed photographs are sensual and beautiful. The book has a useful resources section and also offers numerous titles and authors for further reading throughout the text. But if you¿re a newly-out lesbian in search of resources and information, maybe you should look elsewhere, because there are bound to be less-flawed providers.
