Reviews

The Guardian

Stuart Jeffries

Equine roleplay has been practised since Aristotle was ridden horse-style by his lover. Those with bigger budgets than his might consider using a bit and saddle, or even pulling a small trap during S&M sessions, Quilliam suggests. "Either sex can be the steed," she adds, in a remark typifying The New Joy of Sex's egalitarian spirit. Happy days!

The Observer

Caroline Davies

So readers will be enlightened on HRT, Viagra and on therapy for sexual problems. For the less inhibited, there are sections on how to incorporate phone sex and technology into the physical relationship. Sex shops, striptease and fantasy sections are included. The book retains its 'cordon bleu guide to love-making' theme, with sections on ingredients, appetisers, main courses, sauces and pickles.
