Review of The Sex Bible for Women by Susan Crain Bakos

Sex Bible for Women

Goodreads description

Most books on sexuality teach women that satisfying their partner is the key to a great sexual experience. However, for most women, great sex is predicated on understanding their own bodies and desires first. Moreover, a woman’s sexual desires and preferences aren’t fixed—they are greatly impacted by physical changes such as pregnancy, menopause, and hormonal fluctuations. This sensual yet practical guide provides a comprehensive overview of all the sexual options available for women throughout their lifetime. Intrepid sex journalist and expert Susan Crain Bakos shows women how to sexually satisfy themselves and their partners, through masturbation, touching, oral sex, and intercourse. Racy, full-color photographs instruct women on positions, foreplay techniques, and how to use sex toys on themselves or others. Women gain a deeper understanding of their own unique physiology, how to achieve orgasm, and how to stay healthy as they explore different sexual options.

My thoughts:
One of the biggest sex problems is loss of desire, but really the problem is not understanding our sexual response system. This book will give you ideas to spark that again.

There are actually chemical highs that you get when starting a new relationship and these can last from eighteen months to three years. Everyone has a desire set point and sometimes you have to find ways to boost your set point.

The more men have sex, the more they want it, but the less women have sex the less they want it. (p41)

This book has information on having an orgasm without hands (called the O loop). It talks about mens touch zones and womens. It does have pictures, but they are not explicit and not closeup. I think this book could have used more detailed pictures. It does go into detail about foreplay, oral sex, intercourse, anal intercourse, sex toys and ways to improve your sex life.

There is also a list of the top porn films that women buy.

I can't believe that nobody else on Goodreads has read this book. Probably nobody wants to admit it. This book was pretty good and I give it 4 stars.


  1. I found this book to be very helpful. not only is it instructive but it is explanatory as well. It doesn't just tell you what to do but how and why.

  2. You're right...they might not want to admit it but they probably have a copy with a lot of highlighted parts in it!!!!!!!!!
