    1. The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women

      Reviewed: May 15, 2014 by Spoonerism, a Bisexual Engaged Female

      I've been with my partner for 5 years and it's only in the last month or so that we've been properly experimenting with anal play. We attempted anal sex a couple of times a few years ago with varying results and in the end decided that it was too much hassle and I found it more uncomfortable than a pleasurable. In the meantime I experimented a bit by myself and then my partner started hinting at trying again so this time round I thought I'd do my homework!

      I found information on the internet (with the exception of the Lovehoney forum) not very helpful - it was all either too vague with not enough detail or explicit horror stories... really not what I was looking for! Then I stumbled across this book and decided to invest in it - it turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.

      The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women by Tristan Taormino is an absolutely brilliant resource for anyone with an interest in anal play of any description. I had already read some of Taormino's other work so was familiar with her writing style which is informative and educational yet informal and even a bit sexy.

      The book is divided up into 19 chapters; starting with dispelling common myths about anal sex, then covering topics such as anatomy, the emotional and psychological aspects, health and hygiene, safer sex and STDs, how to use anal sex toys safely, various sex acts from rimming and fingering to strapon sex and fisting, BDSM and even a little chapter on anal pleasure for men.

      Each chapter is very thorough and detailed, featuring useful yet humorous illustrations and sections entitled "Ask the Anal Advisor" which feature some of the more unusual questions people have asked with honest and frank answers from Taormino. The book is also littered with sexy little quotes and anecdotes related to the chapter from sex industry experts and journalists such as Nina Hartley (pornographic actress, director, author and educator) and Susan Crain Bakos (author of 'The Sex Bible').

      I have found this book invaluable. Before I read it I wasn't really sure what I was doing or where I was going in regards to anal sex. This book has made me a lot more confident sexually and it has answered all the questions and dispelled any worries or hang ups I had about the practice. Taormino is so positive and passionate about the subject of anal eroticism she has completely eradicated any underlying guilt I may have had about enjoying it - thank you Tristan! I found the book to be very easy reading and I finished it over two days, I enjoyed it that much.

      The book particularly enforces the fact that anal play should not be painful and that the key is a lot of warming up and relaxation, something that makes perfect sense but due to previous misinformation I thought discomfort was part of the process and that you "get used to it" - NOT so!

      I have yet to go "all the way" with my partner but I'm pretty sure that will change soon!

    1. Fantastic guide

      Reviewed: July 26, 2012 by irisangela, a Bisexual Single Female

      At the time I came across this book I haven't had any anal experience and was reluctant to try as it seems painful, and despite of doing quite some internet research I was still a little weary about hygiene associated with anal play.

      Reading this book really put my mind at ease in answering many questions I have regarding anal eroticism. There are helpful and clearly illustrated diagrams which really helped later on with painless insertion when my partner and I were experimenting anal sex. There are also many suggestions of toys, lube and lists of resources for further reading which are all very useful.

      Whether you are a beginner or experienced in anal eroticism, this guide is a fantastic read and is highly recommended!

    1. Must Buy Anal Guide

      Reviewed: January 26, 2011 by kelly_michelle

      I had had anal sex a long time ago and it was not good, so when my partner said he wanted to do it I figured doing some more research couldn't hurt, so I bought this book.

      It is written in a very honest and informative style without being too formal or clinical. It is the sort of book you can just read cover to cover without being overloaded but it is also great for dipping into the bits you want to know.

      I cannot think of anything Tristan Taormino does not cover that you could possibly want to know. She deals with all the reasons why people are shy to try anal sex without trivialising people's concerns.

      On the back one review calls it "the bible of female anal sex", I don't disagree but I would recommend men read this as well (I know there is a male version but they will still get a lot from this one).

      This book is perfect for anyone considering anal sex or anal play but would also be useful to people who are experienced but want to take it further.
