    This book was great! When I first bought it, I wasn't expecting that much. I was just looking for some information about the different types of toys. My boyfriend and I are just starting to get into them, and I wanted to make informed purchases. However, I was very impressed. It was written well and the pictures are great. I didn't think there was this much to learn about sex toys. I highly recommend this if you are interested!
