Review: Tickle Your Fancy

I’ve mentioned before how the last few months I’ve had trouble reaching orgasm.  This is not something I had ever experienced before, especially with a sex toy, so when Tickle Your Fancy: A Woman’s Guide to Sexual Self-Pleasure came up for review on MyPleasure, I nabbed it.

The cover

Tickle Your Fancy has a slightly non-discreet cover, but there is nothing overly offensive on it.  There isn’t really much that I can say about it.  The back looks more like the ad in the back of a magazine.  The back cover is a little over dramatic saying “Love Yourself Like Nobody Else!”  The rest of the book is nothing like the back, which I like.

This book is much smaller than I expected, though the last sexuality book I read was nearly 200 pages on blog jobs.  The small size does allow you to stick it in a drawer or somewhere out of sight if you wish to.

Inside the book

Once you open up the book you’re greeted with cute cartoons.  On the contests page there is even a woman with a Hitachi tool belt.  I would have preferred if the cover were in the same cartoon style.  There’s a very cute symbol at the bottom of each page, a heart with a swirl on either side.  Overall there are 13 total chapters:

  • Masturbation is Healthy
  • The Female Anatomy
  • About Orgasm
  • Getting Ready for Pleasure
  • Fantasys and Adult Entertainment
  • Lubrication
  • Clitoral Stimulation
  • Dildos and Vaginal Penetration
  • Vibrators
  • G-Spot Play
  • Anal Play
  • Water Fun and Creative Objects
  • Cleanliness and Safety Tips

Inside the book

All of the chapters are fairly brief and introductory.   which cover basic anatomy and the pleasure cycle.  The next few chapters talk about how to arouse yourself with fantasy and porn as well as the importance of lube.  The chapter I liked most was the chapter on clitoral stimulation.  They have small diagrams and descriptions of different techniques to stroke the clit.  Many I have thought of and used, but some were new to me to try out.  I also liked the dildo size chart they have in the vaginal penetration chapter.    It can be hard to see exactly how wide a dildo is when it’s in your hand and the size chart shows you just how big a 2″ diameter is compared to a 1 1/4″.  I also like the water play chapter and that is something I would really like to try out.  Unfortunately I don’t have the hot water capacity to have much fun at all in the shower.  The only things I didn’t like about the book is how much it shows the Hitachi (it kinda scares me) and the book over all is really for a beginner.

Overall, Tickle Your Fancy is a very cute book and I loved the cartoon style pictures throughout the book.    It was very easy to read but is really just for women who have not really masturbated before.  It is a nice small book and may offer some tips and tricks that you had not thought of before.  If you want to check it or other sensual books out head over to MyPleasure.
