Excerpt: Amazon Look Inside
“Many, if not most, people remain in the dark about the actual workings of the vagina and vulva. The primary purpose of Read My Lips is to educate women and men about the vulva and vagina in a manner that is smart, informative, and entertaining. Readers, both women and men alike, will come to think differently about women's genitals and become a little more curious and a lot more comfortable with them. They will learn more about the female body in terms of health, sex, pleasure, culture, and art.
Though based on sound scientific and medical research, Read My Lips will be accessible to the masses, so women and men who are curious about the clitoris, Brazilian waxing, labiaplasty or whether the G-spot really exists, will find something of interest in these pages. Chapters focus on sex and the vulva/vagina which, in spite of the many interesting cultural and historical aspects of vulva and vagina lore, remains of central interest to many people - as it should given that women's genitals and how they work, especially in regard to sex, remain a mystery to so many well-intentioned lovers.
In keeping with the overall theme of celebration and education, the authors take a sex-positive, pleasure-focused perspective on women's genitals, pointing out the parts that can help women to enjoy sex and feel more comfortable in their own bodies. Tips on technique will also be shared alongside information on vaginal health.”
Every single women and girl should read this book – I am not exaggerating, I think this book has information and to the point advice on how to take care of the part of us that school or even your mother doesn’t know about.
You need to know how it will affect your ‘lady parts’ if you shave off all hair, or if you clean up with perfumed wipes before a visit to the obgyn. The book talks about what’s what, what happens, when and how to honor the feminine part of us.
Read My Lips is definitely a must read book to all women, not that men wouldn’t get information off of it but it’s for girls, let’s face it. The book is a singing praise to all things ‘vajayjay’, the coloring, the trimming, the washing, vattooing, vafacial, vajazzling and why not to douche, and truthfully it goes bit over board with the ‘lady bits’ craft projects, because as much as I now respect my ‘sassy’ (thanks to this book) I’m not gonna make larger than life copy, or do a theme party around it. The thought makes me smile, but no thank you.
One of the short chapters I found very interesting was MEN TALK MUFFS, yes all the title are quite witty and funny, in which men talk about what they like about ‘kittens’ varying from short sentiments:
“Moisture, warmth.”-Andres, 31, Spain
…to a longer more detailed love letters to ‘muffins’:
“They look like a flower. Like an orchid. I like them best when they have some exterior vulva. Like after a woman has had a child, they are sexier looking. I like them shaved so that nothing covers the view of them. I like the scent and the taste. I love it when some of the skin pulls outward and pushes inward on each stroke. I like how they are so close to the woman’s anus. One good lick can hit both spots. I love it when they trickle liquid from a woman’s excitement. I love how the inside of their pussy feels when I insert a finger or two. I love to find and rub the G-spot while licking them.” -Tom, 45, New York
Wither you have a love or hate relationship or indifference to your ‘pussy cat’ you wanna read this book because there are thing you aren’t aware of with you are avarage woman or highly educated – and trust me you want to know what goes on ‘down there’ not just for health but also for pleasure! Read My Lips will make you appreciate your vulva ( yes that’s what it’s called scientifically even though your lady parts include a lot more variedly named parts, like the vagina ), the information is told in a fun and sassy way making you feel proud to be a woman! With just two words, informative & empowering!
