An unforgettable love story.

The other side. Yes, this is a good view of the lifestyle, yet I would like to challenge Terry to see “the other” side. I have seen it, broken marriages, relationships in splinters, scarred hearts. Sure if your data is skewed by only interviewing those who are active in the lifestyle is will sound grande. But, what about interviewing those who have left the lifestyle, or have been damaged by it. There are always two sides. I agree, for those couples who 100% agree on their lifestyle, then no problem. But about those who do not 100% and have to compromise? I have spoken with many women in the lifestyle who said they wished they were like my husband and I. We only touch each other, and exhibit and voyuer only. Not even soft swapping. But, we love being in the sexually charged arean of the lifestyle which you cannot find anywhere else. His book does do a great job of confirming that the lifestyle is not taboo, which it is not. But for those who left and are now broken, Terry up for the challenge?

Coming of Age. I am grateful that this underground culture is being brought into the open, and entering mainstream just as the LGBT community has benefited from greater open-mindedness. Thank you, Millennials. I found this book via an interest in Betty Dodson’s experience as a swinger in the 1960s. As a student of the sex education work of Betty Dodson-Carlin Ross my world view has changed immensely, and my sexual pleasures greatly enlivened. So, after following the breadcrumbs to “The Lifestyle” I now want to explore our local club scene. I live in a part of the country where even the Queers are homophobic. So, it pleases me to learn that many, many women in the Lifestyle are bisexual (albeit married and strictly within the context). It means a local club could satisfy my needs.
The favorite chapter for me is Chapter Six, “New Horizons” about the Annex ‘spaceship’ in Washington State. The descriptions of the layout with its fantasy-themed rooms, something-for-everyone feng shui, were deliciously arousing. However, when the author got down to the actual party – and not the tour – he left us hanging. His descriptions had been so graphic my voyeuristic impulses were aroused, and I was anticipating the very next chapter to get us into the actual party.
Now, since I am a total Yaori girl who gets turned on by male to male, one aspect of the Lifestyle that disappoints me is the male-to-male homophobia. “You’re BEARING!” In other words, back off buddy. Hopefully, this too will loosen up in time.
My only boredom with this book was long windy sentences that left me cold. Gould could benefit from studying Betty Dodson’s crisp, earthy, pithy writing style (Orgasms for One, Orgasms for Two, etc). Other than that, Bravo!

Good but soft erotic. Repatative stories semi-erotic. Not bad but not something I would pass on for a Bridal shower.

Welcome to my Book Shop. In these pages are a variety of books related to sexuality, erotica, politics and culture. Most are works that I have read and recommend personally, and some have been read and recommended by my friends or staff. There are even a few books here that I’ve written, and others in which I’ve written essays or short stories. Feel free to browse, and if you’d like to purchase a book, just click on the title and follow the instructions.

As the poet John Russell Lowell said, “Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind.” So get pollinated! Read a good book. A book can educate you, entertain you, arouse you, revolutionize you! Though the Internet is fun to surf and great for getting instant information, there’s nothing like cuddling up with a good book when it comes to a truly meaningful, pleasurable reading experience.

For more information, call us anytime at 626-461-5950

Good reading,
Susan M. Block, Ph.D.
