I was able to download this e-book free of charge thanks to a link that its author sent me in exchange for an honest and impartial review which by no means changes my thoughts on the book.
When the author of The Art of Female Masturbation, Carla Bern dropped me a message to enquire if I would be interested in reviewing her first e-book, I felt quite honoured as I usually just review sex toys as my loyal readers are very familiar with. I replied to Carla to say that I would love the chance to review her writing and I felt that this would be a fantastic opportunity to delve into a different kind of product review. At the end of the day the book is about getting yourself off so it's not a huge departure from my usual reviewing habits.
Now considering I haven't written a book review since my school years; hopefully I can do this book justice and not ramble on too much . . .
The Art of Female Masturbation is a perfect and handy guide for those who are not necessarily all that familiar with pleasuring themselves, whether that be from their upbringing or social stigma that still exists (which in my opinion is flipping ridiculous and needs to be cast into the realms of outdated thinking). Also as this e-book provides you with masturbation methods without the need and use of sex toys, it is also great for any individual who may not have or even have the means to buy any.
However having just implied that this 43 page e-book is ideal for novices to wanking ; I have to admit that that having read through the 20 different methods that Carla has described, I came across a good few methods that I have not tried before or wouldn't have even thought of. I would never say that I am a masturbation expert as I am a firm believer that even the most experienced person can take the opportunity to learn something new as such was the case for me.
The way that Carla has written this e-book is really great as a quick reference guide ideal for when you want to try a new technique to get yourself off, whether it's using the showerhead or teasing yourself with a string of pearls, there are plenty for you to choose from. You can also take this e-book one step further and incorporate many of these techniques into your couples play to increase intimacy and bonding in your relationship.
The language that the author has used is not overly complicated meaning that everyone will be able to easily read and understand the tips and tricks she has included. However as a personal preference, I would like to see some deeper explanation of why certain actions detailed in the book elicit the relative bodily response. This I think would have also proved beneficial to the books target audience to enable them to understand their bodies more thoroughly.
One of the particular features of The Art of Female Masturbation is that all of the various techniques that Carla has described has no need for conventional sex toys as they all include the use of items easily found around the house and even the use of furniture which you wouldn't necessarily think of. I won't go into to specifics as I don't want to spoil it for you should you choose to download this little gem of an e-book. Add in the beautifully elegant illustrations that are included at the end of each technique to help demonstrate Carla's descriptions and suffice it to say that she is a bit of a genius.
I am hoping that Carla will use this e-book as a springboard and perhaps write and publish books in the future where the use of sex toys is included as there are so many out there for people to choose from and just as many ways to use them whether on their own or combined with our stimulation techniques and such a book I am sure would prove very helpful and insightful to many.
Overall I enjoyed reading this e-book and I am confident that I will use many of these simple yet effective techniques in my own solo play and even with my OH in our intimate moments. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a bit of variety in their masturbation methods.

So it's nearly that time of the year when the whole world seems to relish in the celebration of love. But if you want to make this year's Valentine's Day one that your partner will never forget, why not consider using some or all of these tips?
Secretly Book a Hotel Room
Yeah okay, it's a bit cliché but it works! Although it's not a surprise, we're doing this exact thing this year. If you can afford it, book a nicely presented room at a hotel. It doesn't have to be miles away from home, just far enough away from all the crap at home. This way you can concentrate on each other and it'll give you both a chance to connect on a more intimate level once you're away from all of the usual day to day distractions.
Oh and if you can, see if you can buy some new lingerie for yourself or your partner and save this for your weekend away. Just don't be surprised if it doesn't stay on for very long! You can also up the ante by buying some new sex toys for you both to enjoy when your tucked up in bed on Valentine's weekend. However this doesn't need to be restricted to this particular weekend, if for whatever reason you can't do anything on the 14th February, you can always do this and have your very own personal Valentine's dirty weekend away!
I've decided to tell you a little bit more about myself and how my other half and I came to introduce BDSM into our lives.
Towards the end of 2013, my other half and I sat down and debated how we could improve our sex life as due to a combination of things outside of our control, it was pretty much in the toilet and we were both feeling pretty fed up with each other.
I can't quite remember how we got onto the topic of BDSM but we discussed it a bit more and decided to give it a try, nothing heavy to begin with, just a bit of light bondage and some playful spanking (as we used to go horse-riding, riding crops were already on hand).
For my first post for the hints and tips page, I thought that I should probably start with the basics.
Funnily enough I had a conversation with a friend at work this week and he had no idea that there were so many different kinds of lube there were. So for all the people out there who are unaware of the different varieties of lube; this one's for you.
