    Review: This book rocks. Violet Blue is one of my favorite non-fiction (and fiction too) sex writers. She tells it like it is and you end up learning a whole lot more coming out (no pun intended) than you did when you started. This book is perfect for those who may not be experienced in sex toys and are looking for a good reference guide to bring them up to speed. It covers all kinds of things...machines, anal play, BDSM, vibrators and more. A wonderful addition to my library! I was particularly Review: This book rocks. Violet Blue is one of my favorite non-fiction (and fiction too) sex writers. She tells it like it is and you end up learning a whole lot more coming out (no pun intended) than you did when you started. This book is perfect for those who may not be experienced in sex toys and are looking for a good reference guide to bring them up to speed. It covers all kinds of things...machines, anal play, BDSM, vibrators and more. A wonderful addition to my library! I was particularly interested in the sex machine entries. I had heard about the Sybian and the wonderful folks at Cleis graciously sent me the book and also sent over an excerpt for the tour. Here is a chapter listing for all you curious types: 1. Basic Models and Care and Feeding of Your Toys 2. First Time Toys and Gifts 3. Come Together 4. Kinky Toys for Two 5. Stap-Ons and Bend Over Boyfriend 6. Teledildonic Toys: Online Sex for Two 7. Sex Machines 8. Exotic Sex Toys 9. Sex Furniture 10. Shop Smart and Recommended Resources So, you can see there is a ton of great information and some helpful illustrations to get adventurous couple started on a happier toy box. The voice of the book is light and fun and very informative. I love the ideas at the end of some of the chapters and on page 28 there is a great chart that tells you what you need for which particular thing. Very good advice for the novice or someone who is trying to find out more about bedroom sports. If you have ever wanted a non-threatening guide to getting your kink on, then this is the resource you need to have. A lot of sexiness crammed into 140 pages. Overall, I found this book to be well written and wonderfully informative. I think I may have even learned a thing or two! *wink* Violet has done it again and I now have a great resource that will live on my bookshelf forever! Now we just need the coffee table version! lol. 4/5

    I really enjoyed this book. Whilst I'm not stranger to sex toys, I found the information contained in this book, well, informative. I love the fact that no matter how much I ‘think’ I know about a subject there is always more to learn. This book is written by Violet Blue with a forward by Charlie Glickman, both are well known sex educators in their own right. Charlie Glickman you may recall recently co-penned the book, The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Play. As the webmistress/founder of the website I really enjoyed this book.

This book is written by Violet Blue with a forward by Charlie Glickman, both are well known sex educators in their own right. Charlie Glickman you may recall recently co-penned the book, The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Play. As the webmistress/founder of the website Clitical.Com I am no stranger to sex toys, but I am aware that many people are and a book like this can prove invaluable and I just wish it had been around when I first began to dabble in the wonderfully strange world that was sex toys back then. As Charlie Glickman points out in his forward, back when I started sex toys were called novelties, the only way to get them was to walk into a seedy looking dirty book store and make a purchase. Thankfully things have changed today with the advent of the Internet and female friendly stores such as Good Vibrations and Babeland, some of the blush feature has been taken out of buying sex toys, even for the first time. The Adventurous Couples Guide to Sex Toys, begins with a great chapter that will gently guide the beginner through the various types of toys that are on the market today as well as how to care and feed them after you have made your purchase. Once we have a rough guide to what we could be looking for in today’s market we move to the subject of giving a toy as a gift or making your very first purchase. There are lots of useful hints and tips offered within this chapter. If you’ve ever wondered how to bring a sex toy into the bedroom when you have a new lover, or perhaps an existing one, that you are shy to introduce the world of toys to the next chapter is a must read. Violet suggest multiple ways to help you overcome possible embarrassing situations as well how to simply approach the subject of bringing toys into your bed. Save 15% when you buy any 2 selected Sexy Costumes Chapter 4 deals with toys of the fifty shades variety, in other words those that are designed for more kinky play, such as whips, paddles and cuffs to name but three possibilities. Violet’s easy writing style makes for easy reading throughout not just this chapter but the entire book. Chapter 5 is devoted to the seemingly beguiling world of stap-on play. From the types of harnesses available to various types of play, all is covered within this section. Chapter 6 finds us in the world of technological toys. This as we quickly discover whilst reading can open up a world of play to those in a long distance relationship that once was just a fantasy. While a webcam might not be thought of as a sex toy, after you’ve read this chapter you will likely change your mind…. Next we are treated to a look at sex machines, which are more advanced than ever before. Violet again offers the reader ways of using these machines which many reader will not be familiar with. The same is true of the next two chapters in which sex furniture and exotic toys are discussed, explored and taken to task. Chapter 10 takes an enlightening look at shopping for sex toys in the modern age of the Internet. Violet discusses safety, provides tips for buying both intelligently and safety. More than that she offers a large selection of recommended sex toy stores both physical and on line, sex toy direct retailers and safe sex information. The Adventurous couples guide to sex toys is a book is written in a nonsense style that I appreciated, and it made it not only any easy read but an interesting one. Even for someone such as myself who considers herself something of a toy expert, there was some new information and resources to be gleaned from reading this book.

    Adventurous lives up to its back cover description. It's an excellent, no-frills-all-informative-thrills and friendly manual that's indispensable for readers new to sex toys; beyond those readers, it looks to be a worthwhile read/update for those who are already familiar with those instruments but may be looking to expand the contents of their buzz bins. Worth owning, this. (This review originally appeared on the Reading & Writing By Pub Light site.) Adventurous lives up to its back cover description.

    Read this while researching for a sex toy start-up. With that in mind, there were only a few revelations in terms of whats out there. Violet Blue goes over broad cathegories and not enough attention is paid to variations within sex toy industry (endless rabbithole that would double the book-length in size). Where this book shines in, is providing very smart tips in toy upkeep and usage.

With that in mind, there were only a few revelations in terms of whats out there. Violet Blue goes over broad cathegories and not enough attention is paid to variations within sex toy industry (endless rabbithole that would double the book-length in size). Where this book shines in, is providing very smart tips in toy upkeep and usage. To give credit where it's due, the book is a must for a complete vanilla newbie wanting to get in on the action. The initiated should not go into this book with expectation of learning. Very frequently, specific sites and brands are mentioned, where it borders shameless advertisement territory. As of 2021, the provided info is 90% NOT outdated. Probably will change in the next 10 years. Because of all this, the book is a 4/5. Recommendation depends on readers knowledge. Good if this is your first book into the field of sex toys. Not much good later on.

    I was delighted to find The Adventurous Couple’s Guide to Sex Toys in my mailbox from Cleis Press. This slim volume, edited by Violet Blue, promised to be a quick and fun read, and toys are quickly becoming an important part of the sex postive activist’s arsenal as more advocates focus on the importance of toy safety and finding sexual pleasure through technology. But does this book deliver on quality information? Yes, more or less.

This slim volume, edited by Violet Blue, promised to be a quick and fun read, and toys are quickly becoming an important part of the sex postive activist’s arsenal as more advocates focus on the importance of toy safety and finding sexual pleasure through technology. But does this book deliver on quality information? Yes, more or less. Blue provides a range of information on toy options as well as safety information, communication advice, and ideas for newbies. This guide is firmly aimed at the beginner straight couple, though. Folks who live in urban areas and are comfortable talking about sex out loud can get any of the toy-specific information for free from their friendly local sex shop employee, or with a little research from reputable blogs. The communication advice is solid, but nothing particularly unique. This book would be best for folks who want to “spice it up” with a partner and prefer to get all the information in one place, in written form, where they can read it in private. Though it’s not indicated in the title or any introductory clarification, this book is specifically for straight couples. Some of the advice could apply to queer folks, but that’s not the audience. The language pretty much ignores trans people in terms of pronoun use, and there’s no helpful information about toys trans people might especially enjoy or about how some people consider “toys” part of their body (for example, in a section on dildos Blue notes that you can give a “mock blowjob”). Finally, I would have appreciated a little more information about specific toy recommendations for specific physical concerns or about what different people may prefer. A lot of the language is general, and while there are caveats such as “most people like,” the book could use even more information about specific sensation preferences and how they relate to toys. For example, folks who prefer very powerful, concentrated stimulation often enjoy the hitachi, but those who are looking for deep but less intensely focused buzz might prefer one of the higher end models that do a more “rumbly” pattern, like the Lelo. Overall, a good resource for the target market, but regular readers of this blog who are already well versed in sexuality topics may want to give this one a pass.
