Oral Sex 101 Book Review

Oral Sex 101

The front cover

Oral Sex 101 is a 18 page book manufactured by Lover’s Choice and sold by Twisted-Miss Sex Toys. It’s a very short book and can easily be read in one sitting (It took me 15 minutes.). The back cover is a hard cardboard while the front cover is a very thin cardboard. Instead of having a proper book binding, the book is bound by wire rings on the side. The pages feel like really thick pages, and the book is full-color on the inside. The book comes with a pouch on the front that includes ID Wild Cherry and ID Cool Mint lubricant. The book was produced in 2008 (so it’s recent) and shows a girl biting a guy’s lip on the cover. Because of the content of the book (and the pictures inside of it), I wouldn’t recommend taking this out in public.

The book starts off with a “Did you Know?” page where you can learn some neat facts like where oral sex was first practiced, how many men can give themselves head, and where the word “cunnilingus” came from. It’s only a page long and the page of contents is on the opposite side of this page.

After the table of contents, we just straight into the FAQ page which includes 11 different questions poised from a He Says/She Says/We Both Say type of question. The answers are pretty short, succinct, and answer the question, but they don’t really explain much in detail. Types of questions include “Is it true that blowing air in the vagina can be dangerous?” (Did not know this), “Can you get/give STDs from Oral Sex?”, “What if I can’t deep throat?” and some others.

Examples of some of the Tips and Techniques

“The Facts”, which is the next two pages, seems to have some odd facts. For one, they claim that there’s only one type of female orgasm – that vaginal and clitoral orgasms are the same thing. For another, they claim that women can only being multi-orgasmic – not men. They do, however, recommend against sugar near the vagina which is a relief. The facts seem a little basic, some seem like common sense, and others just seem like misinformation. Not very impressed with the facts so far.

The next two pages, the “Erogenous Zones” shows a woman on one side and a man one other in their underwear (yet she is in heels. Hmm.) and points out (with arrows) what each zone is and what do with it. I felt this part of the book didn’t need to be sexist – but it turned out that way. For her, when it comes to the head, you should stimulate her brain before her body. For him, when it comes to his head, you should run your fingers through his hair. Guess his brain doesn’t need help. On the “her” diagram, there’s an arrow for breasts while on the “him” diagram, there isn’t an arrow. Guess guys don’t like nipple stimulation either. Overall, not impressed with this page. Plus, they only did the obvious erogenous zones that most people know about such as the lips, head, neck, genitals, breasts, and toes. They left out behind the knees, lower back, torso, and all sorts of them.

Table of Contents and The Facts

After those two pages, you get two pages of “Games” on the next flip of the page. These two pages include six different games that you and your partner can play with one another. The games unfortunately don’t really have much to do with oral sex and instead are just games to tease one another. For example, put chocolate on one nipple, hot sauce on the other, and flip a coin to see which one the partner has to lick up first. Or take your favorite ice cream and place a scoop between her breasts and lick it up. Unfortunately not impressed with the games either.

The next six pages are supposed to be the “meat” of the book. They are the Tips and Tricks for oral sex – 3 pages of “For Her” and 3 pages of “For Him”. The first set of Him/Her consists of what are the best positions for going into oral sex. You get three positions for each gender. The next page consists of some good moves to try the next time you give oral sex. No surprise here, but the “For Him” section gets quite a few more suggestions than the “For Her” section. Both pages had some decent suggestions though that would be helpful to a beginner. The last two pages are about things you can do to spice up your oral sex. The “For Him” recommends using a blindfold while the “For Her” recommends trying out an ice cube.

Showing the small amount of pages in the book

On the last page, we get the oddest thing. It’s a half-page list talking about why lube is important for your sex life. It completely seems out of place and odd in this book. There’s five reasons on why you should try out lubricant including it helps prolong having sex and makes oral sex more tasty. After this is a one-paragraph conclusion to the book.

While the book does include pictures, none of the pictures are explicit or actually nude at all. The models are all wearing at least panties and a bra or are covering their nipples. Some of the pictures don’t actually have to do with oral sex such as a girl licking a cupcake. I feel like, in a book about how to give oral sex, there should at least be diagrams showing me what is what, but none of those were included either.

The book also does assume that you and your partner are male/female. It’s written with a heterosexual couple in mind, and all of the pictures show a girl with a guy as well. All of the pages and topics are divided between “For Him” and “For Her”.

The ID lube works okay. The Cherry honestly tastes a little more like cough syrup while we didn’t attempt the Cool Mint due to my mint-hating tendencies. The little packets do include enough lubricant to easily last for an entire oral sex session though, so don’t worry about running out of lubricant. The nutrition facts for the lubricant are included on the black piece of paper behind the lubricants and honestly, they contain Glycerin, so I wouldn’t use these on the female for oral since it could possibly give her a yeast infection. They work great for him though.

So how do I feel about the book? I’m really split. It’s not much of a book, but I don’t think it was intending to be with the short length. I think it was meant to a be a book that a nervous girl picks up as her first “Sex Help” book to get her in the doorway with all of the pictures and the colors and the basic text. I will gladly admit that there are better oral sex how-to books out there with better information – but this one just seems so friendly and easy to read. Yes, some of the information is sexist, and i wasn’t fond of that, but I could easily see this being the “gateway book” for someone who’s nervous about buying a sex book to buy a book. This sex toy store sells adult books, so pick up Oral Sex 101 (if you’d like to) today.
