Books, Mags, Plays, Music Art: A Big List of Things I Have Lady-gasm Critiqued



Over the years I've written in this blog about a variety of books, magazines, plays, and websites or threads. Sometimes I review/critique them. Sometimes I praise them. Sometimes I interview the authors about them. I want to get all of that in one place. I also want to build on it. There are so many more books that I want to talk about. There are so many more magazines that I want to SSL Review. This will be an ever growing list.



Here's the basics for those of you new to this blog.

SSL Reviews are critiques specifically of depictions or discussions of female orgasm, female masturbation or the clit. Sometimes in these, I rate them from 1 to 5 vulvas. (!)(!)(!)(!)(!). Sometimes I don't. Also, feel free to check out the TV and movie SSL Reviews.

As always, I'm open for ideas. So, if you've heard of something I should check out, please, throw 'em at me.

Books
The Hite Report by Shere Hite
This is less a review of the book and more of a look at some writings about the 30th anniversary of the book. Either way, this is an IMPORTANT book. I also write about it HERE

The Case of the Female Orgasm: Bias in the Study of Evolution by Elisabeth Lloyd
Absolutely fabulous and incredibly comprehensive book on theories about how the female orgasm evolved.

The Technology of Orgasm: "Hysteria," The Vibrator, and Women's Sexual Satisfaction
A deeply researched historical look at female orgasm and Western culture's long and desperate attempt to cling to the belief that PinV intercourse is as orgasmic for women as it is for men.

Female Sexual Response  - Hiroshi Yoshida 1961
A Kinsey Institute find. Hella on-point and almost a decade before Masters and Johnson

5 Minutes to Orgasm Every Time You Make Love by D. Claire Hutchins
The name seems cheesy and ridiculous, but the message is hella on point.

Sexing the Body: Gender Politics and the construction of Sexuality by Anne Fausto-Sterling
You can't divide humanity into 2 distinct sexes. This book meticulously goes into why that's true, and it's super interesting

American Sexual Character: Sex, Gender, and National Identity in the Kinsey Reports
This is an interview with the author Miriam Reuman. It's maybe one of my favorite books. It's just really great.

Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk About Sexuality
This is an interview with the author Deborah Tolman. she is fab, and this book is a must read.

For Yourself: The Fulfillment of Female Sexuality 
This is an interview with the author Dr. Lonnie Barbach. The book and her research is so important, and if you have not ever orgasmsed and want to learn how, this is the book.

Slippery When Wet: One Woman's Journey Through the Mystery of Sex  by Dr. Joanna Ellington
A memoir of a super interesting lady who also invented a pretty sweet lube that is safe for trying to conceive.

Some kinda random thoughts on this book about those titans of physiological orgasm research - Masters and Johnson.

A guest SSL Review of this romance novel...and it's a good one  - Orgasm Equality Approved!

50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James
A guest SSL Review...not great in the lady-gasm realism department

Sex and Your Son, Sex and Your Daughter 
This isn't a book, it's a 1965 sex ed record for parents and kids to listen to together. I didn't know where to categorize this, so it's here.


Magazines
Cleo (a huge Australian women's magazine)
2 awesome Orgasm Equality articles by Gemma Askham
Breaking the Sexual Glass Ceiling and Beating the Orgasm Gap

Cosmo

Guess what? They're way the hell better than you remember them. In fact, strangely, they've got an orgasm equality flair that is simply badass these days.

January 2013 #1
Someone's embarrassed when their boyfriend finds their vibrator...for some reason 

January 2013 #2
From 'Rebound Sex , The Right Way'  - They use the word clit, and I'm pleased

January 2013 #3
From 'Rebound Sex, The Right Way' - we ponder how sad it is that a stat saying only 1/3 of women orgasm during rebound sex sits so unremarkably on a page instead of firing up the masses

January 2013 #4
From 'Rebound Sex, The Right Way' I read about The Corkscrew and find it a bit ridiculous 

Glamour 
Great article about Bad Sex April 2016 
The Article, by Gemma Askham tells the damn truth about the reality of so much hetero sex. also, i might have a quote in this one. 

Filament

An awesome nudey magazine for women; smart and sexy and this issue got a 4 vulva rating

Kinky Korner SSL Review
How does Diane's orgasms during her wild phone sex with long-distance boyfriend Randy rate on the realism scale? Sadly, only 2 1/2 vulvas (!)(!)(!

An Article on Bondage - an SSL Review
So, a dude gets a bondage article, him and his lady try that shit for like a year, and he writes an article about it...kind of an informational article. I SSL review it.

An SSL Review of their X-rated Video Reviews
Dude, the storylines of these porns they are reviewing are insane. My eyes were opened you all. You need to check this. 

SSL Review of Reader Questions
Is she trying too hard to orgasm?; Is that dude a douche-bag for being bothered his lady really likes getting her own? (yeah probably); incorrect orgasm rate knowledge; and faking or a strong vag? 

SSL Review of the Sex Toy Ads
Check off your sex toy wish list with : "The Ultimate Vibrator" that probably doesn't do all the moving they say it does, "German Ticklers" that should be named cervix torturers, and the "Butt/Pussy Tickler" that inexplicably touts its use for enema retention.

Playboy
Playboys from my youth and their affect on me
I had a different perspective of feminism back in the day when I was reading my dad's Playboys

March 1995 - Playboy Advisor
This dude has the wrong idea about how to eat a lady out

February 2006 SSL Review
penis-growth ads, previous centerfold repping for cunnilingus, and insinuations through cartoons and poems that dicks give women orgasms. Only 2 vulvas (!)(!)

March 2006 SSL Review
Playboy Advisor's take on masturbating to sleep, their smug take on lady-gasms, and fair advise about sex toys; a fiction story about carrot masturbating; and some orgasm equality in a cartoon. (!)(!)(!) 

May 2006 SSL Review
Orgasmsing on weed, the length of a pig's orgasm, and a Playboy Party Joke about pantyhose. This issue got a 3 1/2 vulva rating (!)(!)(!)(!

Maxim
