One of my best friends in elementary school had a hippie mom who kept giving her Today sponges even though neither of us was remotely near sexually active. I remember thinking that was totally weird but sort of cool in a misguided way. I mean, really, who gives their kid who's never even kissed a boy contraceptives?! Perhaps unsurprisingly this friend actually wept when I got my period because it meant I became a woman. Umm, yeah. Talk about too much information! Now, whenever I see any kind of book about sexuality, I think of her mom. Weird, I know.
Featuring refreshingly non-judgmental information on just about any kind of sexual topic you can think of, Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex is almost like a user's manual for doing it. The photographs are fantastic, showing a variety of people (men, women, young, old, transgender) in varying stages of undress and intimacy without being too lascivious or overly clinical. This is a well-designed handbook for nook. It's like having a more experienced girlfriend dish the dirt to you, ugly truth and all, although these girlfriends happen to be the founders of Babeland, the woman-friendly sex shop that embodies healthy sexuality. So, yeah, they know a little about sex and all its accoutrements…
While I don't necessarily think Moregasm would be an appropriate gift for kids –duh!– it would definitely be a fantastic bridal shower or bachelor gift. Or a break-up gift for someone who's starting a new, sexier life. Or, uh, your spouse. Be sure to mark the pages you want him/her to bone up on, as it were.
