It's time for a sexual reeducation. The old paradigm of sexuality and relationships is no longer meeting the needs of the growing number of single people looking for love. Men and women are investing millions of dollars in the burgeoning industry of love coaches and dating advice, trying desperately to keep the old model alive in a world with very different values. Dating to marry and have children, or even to have sex within the context of a monogamous relationship, is no longer resonating with the modern world. It is time to explore something new in our sexual relationships. It is time for some new rules for sex.

This book is chock full of interesting factoids, personal erotic memoir stories, and a lot of opinion. I alternately loved it and wanted to pitch it against the wall. Disclaimer: I've personally acquainted with the author, who is a fabulous person, and I share many of her beliefs about sex-positivity. But, sentences like this: "What if I told you that you don't even know what you like sexually because you haven't been free enough to decide for yourself?" evoke the answer, for me, of "Please do not project YOUR own experiences onto me. I actually DO know what I like sexually and have made my own decisions." Whenever any writer uses "you": "you grew up thusly" and "you believed such-and-such," it sets my teeth on edge. No. YOU are not inside my head. You can share your experiences with me, and ask me if mine were similar. Sometimes, they might be. But don't TELL me what MINE were. #boundaryviolation Luckily, the entire book doesn't go carry in that writing style. There are many valid points about American culture and attitudes about women's sexuality made, there are interesting nuggets about women's sexual health. The chapter, early on, that was all Bible study would probably irritate the pluck out of anyone who 1) has entirely rejected the Bible as a guide for living, 2) fully embraces the Bible as a guide for living, 3) doesn't feel any desire to reconcile the Bible with their sexual lifestyle. And that's my problem with this book. It tries to do too much, in too many different directions, and accomplished and sexy as the author is (and her sexcapades in the book are HAWT), doesn't quite pull it off. IMO, it's worth a read, but be prepared to lurch all over the place.
