Publisher's Summary

Gen-X sexpert Tristan Taormino goes beyond the basics for an edgy and playful book of sex secrets that help adventurous couples take their sex lives a step further. From her popular columns and website to her videos and speaking engagements, Tristan Taormino has been garnering raves for her no-holds-barred straight-talk about sex. As a sex educator, Tristan has listened to thousands of people's most intimate sexual questions. Finally, she's written book to respond to those questions - no matter how taboo - giving honest, useful information that doesn't shy away from sensitive topics.
All the basics are covered here, but she also tackles such topics as strap-ons, female ejaculation, the latest in sex toys, incorporating erotica into your sex life, strategies for hitting that elusive G-spot, anal sex for him and her, and BDSM. Tristan's book isn't for men and women looking for generic "have better sex" advice. It's for people who already have great sex who want to explore all the ways that they can further enhance their skills and their pleasure. Down and Dirty Sex Secrets is quite simply an indispensable book for anyone looking for healthy, adventurous, mind-blowing sex.
Tristan Taormino is an authority in the field of erotica and sexuality. Along with working as a feminist author, columnist, activist, and educator, she has been featured as Out magazines 100 Gay Success Stories of the Year and The Advocate's Best and Brightest Gay & Lesbian People Under 30. In addition to all of this, Taormino recently appeared in the E! Special "The Real 50 Shades of Grey."

Turning Vanilla on its Head

I’m picky about sex advice, but this is one of the must-haves.

Whether you’re happily vanilla or the type who’ll try anything, this book will probably give you a few ideas to make it even more satisfying and fun, either alone or with a partner (or two).

Taormino is, without a doubt, the hardest-working sex educator today. She’s in the news constantly, a multi-media threat with her feminist porn and educational videos, her VoiceAmerica radio show, or her new Feminist Porn Book: The Politics of Producing Pleasure. With a devoted and ardent fan base, Tristan is the go-to gal for many women and men who want the real scoop on imaginative, out-of-the-box sex.

Down and Dirty Sex Secrets covers oral sex, multiple orgasms, strap-ons, female ejaculation, erotica, S&M, sex toys, and more. Her warm conversational tone makes the book much more accessible, especially if you’re encountering some of these ideas for the first time.

Even though she speaks with unmistakable authority, I feel like I'm having a fun chat over lunch!

Simplistic and dull

Not much more that you would know already unless you've been only having sex under the bed sheet with the lights turned off and never talked about it. Some chapters were so boring I was listening on fast forward.
