1. Featured erotic book - Forbidden Flowers

    Forbidden Flowers

    Ever since I read Nancy Friday's Forbidden Flowers, I haven't been able to stop trying to get more people to read it. I wrote a review of it over at Orgasm Army where I said:

    "This is a book to read while on a leisurely train ride or when you're relaxing in a tub - it is more a contemplative examination of women's sexuality than an erotic panting page turner. Which is not to say this book isn't erotic - it is… this book is a glimpse into hundreds of women's most intimate thoughts, it would be impossible for it not to be. But the style of the book is thoughtful and more academic than the average erotic novel."

    And I'm not the only one to think so. Another reviewer found it enlightening, "What this book tells you, and what every letter says, is a thank you for making me feel normal that I have fantasies like this. It's got a great range of fantasies, which are helpfully grouped so you can read the ones you like and avoid the ones you don't. Nancy Friday's analysis is really interesting as well.

    These are real unsanitised fantasies and some people may not like them all, but they are really interesting to read and very eye-opening. You learn a lot about yourself as well as getting turned on. You can read this alone or out loud to a partner.

    A third woman just found it darned hot: "I guarantee this book will get the juices flowing and is a great book to share with your partner. Also a great book if you're on your own too. This book opens up the world of women's sexual fantasies and is a great help to women who are maybe a little shy. This book has come to bed with me many times with fantastic results both with myself and my partner."

    Most people will agree that the best thing you can do to achieve great sex is to learn to relax and enjoy it. I don't know of any other way to really relax into your sexuality than by learning to accept it. This book goes a long way towards helping women understand their sexuality and to love all the parts of themselves that they thought were shameful.

    Even if you think you're completely comfortable with your fantasy life, you're likely to find that this book is good to own… after all, where else are you going to find such a treasure trove of ready-made fantasies?
