Girl Sex 101 is a sex-ed book like no other, offering helpful info for ladies and lady-lovers of all genders and identities, playful and informative illustrations on each page, and over 100 distinct voices, plus a hot narrative that shows you how to put the info to good use!
Learn how to navigate the twists and turns of female sexuality, with special guidance from thirteen guest sex educators including Nina Hartley, Sex Nerd Sandra, Jiz Lee, Tristan Taormino, Julia Serano, Reid Mihalko, Kelly Shibari, and more!
This is the book every young woman should have been given instead of dry health class lectures on anatomy and menstruation. In a fun, often irreverent, entertaining way, Moon lays out the realities of sex for women, and though the emphasis is on women having relations with women, the information she shares in a sex-positive, non-judgmental way is vital for all women. With an inclusive atmosphere so that all women find themselves represented in a respectful, realistic way, Moon and her guest educators take the mystery out of how things work, how to approach sex in a positive, co-creative way, and what to avoid. With helpful, and wonderful, illustrations and even a story to illustrate certain points interspersed between the educational bits, everything a woman needs to take the anxiety and mystification out of sex is right here.
Great combination of graphics, understandable language, and story-telling with wonderful ‘how-to’s’.
I wish I'd had this book when I was twenty, but even reading it at fifty-six I learned a lot! The book is full of information presented in a professional and entertaining way. No matter how experienced or inexperienced a person (this book's not just for girls!) is, this book has something to teach. Allison Moon knows what she's talking about, and she talks about it all. Oh, and it's fun.
I'm rating logical progression as "plot" and layout as "setting." Characterization – the mildly erotic storyline used as illustration of principles – was strong on diversity but I think individual vignettes would have worked better. These gals shag everyone. And, finally – This is NOT a book that should be read all at once, and it's not a book to give anyone as entertainment. As a textbook for healthy consensual sex, it's excellent.
This is an absolutely unique and desperately needed resource for those who love cis women, female-identified women, feminine-of-center persons, female-bodied persons, and even persons whose bodies and identities don't fall neatly into a category. Targeted at the underserved demographic of those wishing to honor and respect a lover's personhood throughout a sexual encounter, Girl Sex 101 focuses heavily on achieving meaningful consent, negotiating boundaries, learning how to communicate about sex with a partner--especially one who's suffered abuse, misgendering, or body issues--and making the sometimes daunting prospect of true physical intimacy attainable for anyone. I can't recommend it highly enough. Everything about it from its charming fictional interludes to its fun illustrations to its up-to-date, sex-positive feminist approach to the subject matter win rave reviews. This book is a must-read for lesbian, multisexual, and trans* spectrum people.
From beginner to old-timer, very informative female sex primer. Easy to read, conversationally written, and very supportive and encouraging of whichever gender lifestyle a woman may choose. Lots of good tips!
It was informative, well written, and I like that the author also didn't want girls to man hate. Very nicely done.
