    I was mistaken

    I believed this one to be a guide with pictures and the names of each position but it's more just a walk through of sexuality.

    Total snooze

    I was looking for a book to help spice up my sex life not a text book on where and when sex was invented. Waste of money...not for the visual learners...not even for the readers...more like the nerds who will never have sex...sorry to all those who liked this book...not even a "snorgasm"
