Few sex educators are as well-matched to the task of dispensing safe, honest, affirming sex advice as Ducky Doolittle, a former Times Square stripper, who emerged from behind the peepshow glass to climb to the top ranks of advisors on all matters sexual. For more than a decade, she has toured the country with her one-woman show, visiting hundreds of cities, where she has answered sex advice queries from thousands of women and men-partnered and singled, straight and gay. Ducky's winning humor and rich knowledge of human sexuality have allowed complete strangers to open up and reveal their most intimate thoughts. In Sex with the Lights On she shares for the first time the most-often asked questions, which include: What's the best oral sex technique? Does every woman have a G-spot-and what are the top tips for locating her own? Can men have multiple orgasms? How does a couple introduce anal sex into their relationship? Why do anti-depressants lower sex drive and how can that be avoided? Ducky not only answers each question with a sex-positive open-mind, she gives readers permission to laugh and relax and to create the sex lives that best suit their own desires.
With experience as a peep-show stripper, erotica writer, and sex-toy salesperson, DooLittle is well qualified to conduct workshops that interweave burlesque comedy with sex education. Her first book answers in a friendly and informal style questions that have been posed to her over the years by her audiences, offering broad, solid, safer-sex information. Coverage encompasses sexual anatomy and body parts; body image and health; orgasms; foreplay; manual, oral, coital, and anal sex; and sex toys. For each topic, her initial overview is followed by a series of questions and answers. In many cases, the questions address concerns/curiosities overlooked in other manuals, e.g., prostate sensitivity, cuticle-biting and safer sex (wear latex gloves for finger insertion), and testicle stimulation. The sex-toy chapter is especially detailed and objective, and the resources section, too, is very good. However, the illustrations are only adequate. The informal yet well-crafted writing combined with the expansive content, strong and sex-positive messages about safety, and low price makes this a smart purchase for most libraries, especially with large young adult clientele.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
