Review by Library Journal Reviews

In this second edition of her lesbian sex manual (the first was released in 2000), Newman, founding publisher of Cleis Press, covers oral, manual, anal, and insertive-vaginal techniques with loving care. She includes a whole chapter on breast play, addresses safety in each section as well as in a separate chapter, and even discusses transgender and bisexuality issues, masturbation, S/M, sex parties, and sex toys while giving equal attention to monogamous and polyamorous sex styles. The text expands the orgasm section to a full chapter, includes an additional chapter on sex and partnership, and updates other sections, especially those on health (including how to talk to your physician), sexual response, sex toys, and communicating about sex. The excellent bibliography and resources sections have also been updated; detailed source notes and an index complete the package. This comprehensive and superbly competent manual sets a standard for which all popular sex writers should aim. Not just for lesbians-heterosexual women could learn a great deal about themselves, as could the men who aspire to please them-this is highly recommended for all collections.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

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.
