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.

Overview


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.

I've had one girlfriend, and I picked up this book after breaking up with her...my intention was to show myself that there's a whole world out there, my first experience wouldn't be my last, etc. etc. Well, even if I had picked this up before my first time having sex EVER, I think I would have found it disappointingly demure! The book's audience seems to be girls who are extremely uneducated about sex...never looked up "G-Spot" on Google, hardly ever masturbated, etc. etc. It's like something you might hand a 14 year old along with the "this is what a vagina is" diagram. The suggestions in every chapter usually boiled down to really general and intuitive advice ("you're in control" "ask her what she wants" "lick, suck, rub"). If you've had sex before (or even if you haven't, but are still familiar enough with your body), I would not recommend this book. There are SOME useful pieces of advice that lesbian newbies might not get at first (concepts like stone butches, or getting off from seeing the other person get off, etc.). But overall the information is something that LGBT forums, erotica, indie porn, etc. will be better at teaching you. Wish I had saved the $14 for some lesbian erotica or a 1-month subscription to some lesbian porn instead to broaden my horizons/pick up some new tricks. Oh well.

After reading this book, my girlfriend of 6 yrs and I have found it to be VERY informative- and sexy!!

I am a 20 year old lesbian, and this was my first how-to book. Actually, it was more than that. My girlfriend and I have gotten many ideas after reading this incredible book. Definetly worth a read!

This was the first book I'd ever read on lesbian sex and relationships. I've known for years that I'm bisexual, and I saw this book recommended online several times. So, I thought 'Why not?' I'm really glad I picked this book up. It was very informative and an enjoyable read.

As a bi-sexual, I would like to thank the author for the many days and nights of pleasure that this book has brought. My girlfriends and Ie have reached new heights in pleasure with one another, whether it just be two of us or a group of us. Now we can try new things every day. Going down on women has always been pleasurable for me, but now I know there are other things I can do to please my partners.

It was fun for my partner and I to cuddle together and read this book. This author is amazing. This book kept us up all night. Its a great book for any couple to read and I rate it highly. Keep up the good work.

Masturbation. Check. Orgasms. Check. Female anatomy. Check. This could go on and on because this book is all-encompassing. I'm not sure I'll ever need want to buy another sex guide again! Except when the third edition of this one comes out!
