The second edition of The Ultimate Guide to Cunnilingus: How to Go Down on a Woman and Giver Her Exquisite Pleasure by Violet Blue is self-explanatory. The volume gives a thorough overview of the physical and emotional aspects of this sensual aspect of lovemaking with plenty of tips to give both participants the freedom to have an enjoyable and bonding experience. The anatomical descriptions enhance understanding of the mechanisms involved in arousal and orgasm while the reminders of the importance of open communication and honesty between partners stresses the need for safe practices of sex as well as the benefits of being able to express to one’s lover exactly what is wanted or needed. Erotic short stories penned by Alison Tyler at the end of several chapters provide a nice interlude and there is an invaluable reference section at the end of the book which cites additional resources to enhance one’s pleasure.
A well-organized and thoughtful treatise about a subject that has traditionally been considered somewhat taboo. The author approaches potentially uncomfortable subjects (odor, hair, shape, etc.) with sensitivity and candor and provides a work that cannot help but enhance any woman’s pleasure. Should be a required reading text for all women and their lovers.
