Sex Guide

Sex Toys 101 is a unique sex guide devoted to the wonders of sex toys. Gorgeous full-color photographs of today’s most popular sex toys are accompanied by instructions on use and technique, along with humorous anecdotes, shopping advice, and sex tips for all orientations. The authors, Rachel Venning and Claire Cavanah, gained their experience and perspective as co-owners of Babeland a women-friendly sex toy shop. True to the authors’ dedication to personal sexual empowerment, their sex guide encourages sexual vitality by offering physiology lessons, sexual insight, fun-to-apply sex advice and an unparalleled tour of products for sexual exploration and satisfaction. Thanks to brilliant photography and stunning graphic design, the book showcases sex toys as the authors have always seen them: as beautiful objects of pleasure and liberation.

Rachel and Claire opened Seattle’s first women-oriented sex shop in 1993 because they were committed to helping women and men have more satisfying sex. Since then they have not only launched an extremely successful Web site, two New York City stores, and an LA store, they have also helped change how mainstream America views sexual pleasure. In their mission to put sexual pleasure in everyone’s reach, they wrote Sex Toys 101: A Playfully Uninhibited Guide (A Fireside Original/Simon & Schuster).
