The book

When I first picked up the Toygasms book I was afraid I had already reviewed it.  But then I realized that I didn’t, but it is very similar to the Tickle Your Fancy book I did review.  I then noticed that both books are by the same author, Dr. Sadie Allison.   The front of the book is fairly tame.  It does show some sex toys, but the pictures are extreme close ups so unless you know what they are of, it’s hard to tell what they are.  The back of the book looks a bit like a magazine add and seems out of place from the rest of the book.

An insert

Toygasms is set up the same as Tickle Your Fancy.  The very first page has the same picture as the other book, only instead of her hand between her legs she’s holding a toy.  The bottom of each page has a cute heart design and the book is filled with very cute cartoon images.  I really like the images.  I find them to be attractive and I think many people would find them less intimidating than real photos and not feel like they’re looking at porn.

The book covers a wide range of sex toy related topics including how to introduce them into your relationship, lube, and types of toys and techniques.  Here is the table of contents:

1.  How to Spring a Sex Toy On Your Lover
2.  Your Next Stop:  The Erogenous Zone
3.  Getting Ready For Pleasure
4.  Lubricants Of Love
5.  Dildos – Ready When You Are
6.  Vibrators – Get Your Buzz On!
7.  The Anal Playground
8.  Playthings for Nipples
9.  Rousing Toys For Daring Boys
10.  Strap One On
11.  Curious Sex Tchotchkes
12.  Let’s Accessorize!
13.  Be Safe – Be Clean

Showing some cartoon techniques

I think this book really hits on all of the basics.  I especially liked the first chapter about how to bring up toys with your partner.  I’m sure the target audience is people who have one or two toys, but I found a few useful tips in here to spring my arsenal of sex toys on guys I’m dating.  I think this chapter also helps to break down some of the stereotypes and help explain how sex toys can be good for your relationship.  The second chapter was nearly identical to the same chapter in Tickle Your Fancy, only it covers both male and female anatomy.  The Getting Ready for Pleasure chapter covers all of the major hand techniques that Tickle Your Fancy covered.  The next few chapters talk about the wide variation of toys and give techniques for using the toys and even talks about using combinations of toys as well as techniques that include your partner.  The book does assume a heterocouple, but I think all of the techniques can be used with a lesbian couple as well. Oh and don’t worry boys, this covers some male toys as well, plus why not learn all the techniques to surprise your lady friend.   Also, don’t forget to read the Be Safe chapter!  It covers all the basics to safer sex and toy cleaning.

The only chapter I didn’t care for was the “Curious Sex Tchotchkes” chapter.  It covers many house hold objects that can be used for sexual pleasure.  Most of them are stereotypical, such as using the washer and the shower head.  However it does suggest using your tooth brush, produce, and anything else in the house that’s clean and smooth.  The tooth brush, okay maybe, but still doesn’t seem like it’d be very sanitary.  The produce they did say to wash it and make sure there are no bad spots but I could only agree to suggesting this if you put a condom on it.  As far as other items (they suggested a spatula) I wouldn’t want anyone else to touch it, much less COOK with it after I used it like that.  Just… yuck.

Overall, I did enjoy reading Toygasms.  It has a lot of nice techniques and especially if you are not experienced with sex toys at all.   More advanced users may find it a little lacking, but you never know what you might learn!
