Well, this is the kind of book I think many women have been secretly crying out for. I say secretly, because this is a topic that often people feel uncomfortable talking about for fear of judgment or having labels put on them. But, an insiders view is what people often crave when they are contemplating taking the step from curiosity to actuality, and that is definitely what you get here.

Heather sums up her aims behind writing Curious Girl: A Female Guide to Cunnilingus beautifully in her introduction: ‘I wrote this guide with the intention of providing enough information to help you boldly go forth and part her thighs.’ And she certainly doesn’t disappoint.

What you will find in Curious Girl: A Female Guide to Cunnilingus are the kinds of things you really want to know. Heather not only covers the physical aspects, approaches and techniques that can give you the confidence to explore giving the beautiful gift of cunnilingus. But also, which personally impresses and appeals to me the most, she sensitively, humorously and accurately discusses with delightful openness the psychological elements that can come into play if you’re considering venturing into territory that you have not explored before. Covering topics such as what do I do when I do get permission to someone’s ‘holiest of holies’, enhancing pleasure if your partner has genital piercings, safe sex, how to ask for ‘pussy directions’, different types of touch and orgasms, and how to go about meeting likeminded sex positive women.

You don’t need to worry about being tied in knots by technical terms, or complicated theories on sexuality in Curious Girl. You get the real stuff here, delivered by a woman who clearly has experienced the journey of exploring her sexuality, and is comfortable in sharing those experiences openly to help ease some of the anxiety or uncertainty for others who are keen to explore.
Curious Girl: A Female Guide to Cunnilingus is packed with personal anecdotes and down to earth advice on how to approach going down on a woman (perhaps for the very first time), allaying fears, and opening up to pleasure.

It won’t turn you into a ‘cunnilingus ninja’ overnight, and that is also a key point in the book, you don’t have to be. The exploration and learning IS all part of the fun. But it will certainly have you well on your way to start your training (so to speak)!

So if you’re feeling bicurious, or if you’re wanting to take the plunge but don’t quite know how, or if you’re perhaps just looking for some new ideas, this is the book for you!
