Review: Position of the Day Playbook

I’d like to send a big ‘thank you’ to the people at Babeland for sending me my first product to review for them:  The Position of the Day Playbook, brought to you by nerve.com.  Like the Night of Romance Kit I reviewed recently, I was much more excited when I requested this product, but alas what can you do? Plus this baby will come in handy I’m sure, not only for my Position of The Week posts, but well… I at least hope not to be celibate for the rest of my life.

The cover

The book over all is a small paperback with a very simple color scheme; red and black.  The dimensions of the book are 7″x5″x1″.  It’s not a tiny book, but it’s definitely small enough to stick in  your bed side table away from prying eyes.  On Babeland’s site there back cover shows some sex positions, but the book I got does not, so you could easily place it face down with the binding facing away and no one would know what it was without picking it up.  Here’s the little snippet of info from the back cover:

“DO try this at home.  And this time, keep a record.  From the creators of Position of the Day comes a titallating new playbook that illustrates 365 mind-(and body-) bending sexual positions, one for each day of the year. … Remember, a position a day keep sthe love doctor away.”

There is a short introduction to the book and a little blurb about nerve.com but other than that, there isn’t a lot of text, it’s basically a bit picture book of sex positions.

Positions Plays for September 12th and 13th

When I got this book, I wasn’t expected, well an actual playbook.  I figured it would be a bunch of positions with descriptions and whatnot much like the Cosmo Kama Sutra articles.   But it is very much a playbook.   There is a page for every day of the year, even February 28th for leap years!  I guess they remembered that just because a day only happens once every four years doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy it!  Each page has the date at the top followed by the title of the position and then a large picture of the position.

Each position also lists amount of calories burned for both him and her. Thought it doesn’t say how long you have to do it, heh bad pun, to burn that many so I would assume an hour.  Some positions burn more calories for one partner over the other, so if you’re feeling lazy, pick one with the least calories for your part! Some positions also list equipment and hazards.  Not all positions require equipment but like on September 13th above, it says you’ll need a bench.

Also, there’s two places for you to write!  I’m a big book lover and it’s a cardinal sin for me to write in my books, but I think I can make an exception for this one! It has a place to mark you’re rating of the position:  below Average, Average, Above Average, and Whoa!  It also has a few lines to leave you’re own comments.  Put whatever you want, keep a record, whatever you want to do. The only thing I did not like about the book is that it has no description of any of the positions.  Some of them look a little difficult and I think a few words or tips would be useful, but I guess that’s why there’s a comment section, leave you’re own tips!

Another thing I didn’t notice at first, but did after looking through, is that each position isn’t always depicted as a male-female couple.  There are several male-male and female-female couples shown in some positions and I even saw one group position (March 17th – The Out of Town Guests).  So don’t feel that if you’re not in a heterosexual couple that this book is not for you.  I was very impressed that they would do that.

Overall, I love this little book, and I really look forward to getting to try some, hell maybe even all, of the positions in it.  This is great for any couple and would be a great gift.  Plus it’s not expensive, only $12.95 from Babeland.  So please check it out, if you’d like to buy this little book, click the banner below!  And again a big thanks to Babeland for sending me this product to review!

If you’re looking for one position for a special date, please contact me and I’ll see if I can help you out 🙂  And please comment here if you’re tried any particular position!
